One of the major things I notice when I start nursing is that it seems like I am STARVING all. the. time. It doesn’t help that my little one is kind of a little piggie and I feel like she is taking most of my calories.
So like I said last week, I joined Weight Watchers Online and my daily allotted points are 55. It seems crazy high to me, but I will try it out for a few weeks and see what kind of results I get. My real strategy is to eat as many 0 point foods as possible throughout the day and hopefully that will make all the difference!
Thanks to Jenn over at Peas and Crayons for helping me to stay accountable for my eats every Tuesday. Dustin says that I need to document my weekend eats and that I always eat perfect on Tuesdays because I will have to blog about it. Maybe next week.
I am happy to say that I stuck very closely to my plan yesterday and I didn’t end up being hungry at all throughout the day. Small victories people.
- 2 eggs, plus 2 egg whites
- 1/4 an Avocado
- Great Harvest Honey Whole Wheat Bread
- 1 Tbs. Justin’s Almond Butter
- Blackberries and Strawberries
Here is what my WW tracker looked like:
- Low Carb Whole Wheat Tortilla
- Grain Mustard
- 6 oz. Peppered Deli Turkey
- 1/2 Avocado
- Brocco Sprouts
- Baby Carrots
I really didn’t think that my lunch was going to last me all day and so I added in a Chobani Pineapple Greek yogurt for a little sustaining power, and it seemed to do the trick. Here is how lunch tracked:
The blurry pic is because it was STEAMING hot. This Red Curry soup has been a stand by in my kitchen the last few weeks. It is incredibly easy to make and you can always use different ingredients of whatever you have on hand.
- Red Curry Paste
- Chicken Broth
- Coconut Milk
- Red Pepper
- Red Potato
- 6 oz. Chicken
- 1 Cup Brown Rice
This meal was a little high in points, but I think it’s because I over estimated to make sure I wasn’t cheating myself. Here is how it turned out:
Even after over estimating I still have 7 points left at the end of the day. I think they will be spent on a Chobani with berries. That leaves me with 3 points left. Not bad.
