Last night my brother and I went out for some gelato and then we snacked on BBQ rice crisps while watching tv, but my camera batteries died and so no pictures :( I found some new ones though so we're good to go now.
Because of last night's snacks I wasn't too hungry this morning so I made myself a light breakfast of yogurt with Bear Naked vanilla almond crunch granola, 2% yogurt, half a banana, strawberries, and a kiwi. It tasted just as great as it looked!
The nutrition facts for this kind are pretty good:
I've really enjoyed blogging about my meals for the past week or so but so far I haven't really achieved much in terms of my recasting goals. I am still eating far too many sweets (offenders) and I really need to get more veggies in! Gelato especially is something I am prone to overdo and I have just been eating too much of it without enough pleasure. So, I am going to make a few changes:
1) Cut out offenders completely. For me, these are gelato, snack foods like pretzels that my roommate brings into the house, and snacks (mostly sweet ones, like muffins or pastries) that I just kind of eat without savouring or even really thinking about them.
2) One treat a week, to be had on Saturday.
3) Spend more time on meal planning and incorporate more veggies into my days.
As always, the focus is on pleasure and consciously savouring what I choose to eat. I'm very happy with the amount of movement I do in a day, and I've really been enjoying my time at the gym. Now I need to put a little more effort into the dietary part and the results I want will start to show.
Happy Monday and see you for lunch!
