nikkilmm Posted June 26, 2013 Share Posted June 26, 2013 Ok so I only made it 3 days the last time I tried this - I should have waited until after my vacation - but here I am now back on day 1. I spent most of my day yesterday (last day of vacation) cooking. I have a lot of meals frozen for the next 30 days so I feel like I'm ok on the planning, but I am concerned about portion/calorie overload. I have the guidelines on my fridge, but if feels . . . wrong. Like too much food. I wish that the guidelines went by ounce/cup/teaspoon/ instead of handfull/palm/thumb. When the protine is ground beef palm is kinda hard to know. So here is my day so far: For breakfast I had 1 soft boiled egg, a handful of berries and cashews (a couple strawberries, some blue and blackberries and a spash of cashews) and for lunch I had a cashew stri fry with boiled cauliflower. It was a pretty good sized potion. The receipe served 4 so I froze it in fouths, but it might have been bigger than my palm. I brought onion/cucumber salad, but didn't eat it 'cause I was full. I've snacked a bit before lunch on some cashews too but I was hungry. Plus I'm drinking some Tazo passion fruit tea which seems like it's ok based on ingredient - but I'm not overly sure since its kinda sweet. I really want to do this well and have invested a lot of time and money on prep so I don't want to find out in a week that I'm not doing it right and then fizzle . . . does this seem right? Also - night time and my kids snacks prove difficult for me. Any suggestions on how to get past the cravings (I am a single mother of 2 toddles so I can't always just go do something to keep my mind off it. I need some way I can beat back cravings while at home with my kiddos). Ideas? Thanks for any helpful hints! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
