I couldn’t believe my eyes when I got on the scale. I was expecting a 1-2 lbs loss because I lost 6 lbs last week. But Lo and behold being hungry all of the time and working out pays off! Lol!
Actually, I have to say the hungry all of the time is getting better as I am learning what best satiates me. Weirdly, my breakfast of bullet proof coffee keeps me going the longest.
Right now this is what I put in the blender for my coffee. I know I need to cut down on the heavy whipping cream but for now I have the calories and fat available.
1 tbsp Kerrygold
1 tbsp coconut oil
3 tbsp heavy whipping cream
1/2 scoop cookies and cream protein powder
A little bit of sugar free vanilla syrup
1 packet of stevia
16-20 oz of coffee
It comes out to 435 calories and it is so delicious. It fills me up, keeps me energized and I get to drink my beloved coffee.
The only other nutrition thing I focus on is getting at least 100 – 120 grams of protein. I don’t have any restrictions on myself but I mostly eat real food- meat, veggies, fruit and I still eat dairy. I am a person who can’t eliminate foods for their diet, I am just trying to be smarter about it and doing a lot of planning.
I also don’t use my exercise/fit bit points that myfitnesspal adds in except on Saturday.
I have a cabinet that I used to keep my binge treats in and now it is filled with protein- protein powder, quest bars, oh, and all of my teas!!! I still drink tea in the morning when I get ready and take my coffee in the car. I drink decaf tea every evening. It’s my favorite wind down and relax ritual.
Well, I’ve gone two days with no workout so I’ve gotta figure out what I am going to do tomorrow.
