Why are Mondays & Tuesdays such a fight to the finish? Ahhh!! Thankfully Wednesday marked that the week is starting to come to a close. I barely have a minute to even grab a snack. But a lil while back when I bought my Wii Fit I made a promise to myself to eat healthier, exercise more frequently & snack wiser. It has really paid off because I’m finally under the dreaded 170 mark. That number just didn’t want to seem to budge on the scale. Hopefully I have left it in the dust for good.
I’ve actually lost about 7 pounds total and have kept it off in about a month and a half AND while I’ve had a Cupcake Class. My willpower is growing! This may sound silly but a way I’m saving money these days is to fit back into my older jeans I have barely worn. I’ve never been a designer jeans gal so it’s okay for me to wear last year’s pair. I’m wearing a pair right now I bought a while ago from NY and Company that just didn’t fit after a period of time. (P.S. I think I did the “Oh it’s a lil snug but it’s on sale & will be diet motivation if I buy it” routine & yeahhhh that didn’t happen.) They fit great now and I’m truly happy about my lil progress.
My biggest problem with it all however is snacking. It’s too many hours for me between breakfast, lunch, and dinner so I turn to smaller snacks to raise my blood sugar & keep the chronic fatigue at bay. But lately I’ve made some healthy switches and choices I’d like to share.
Laughing Cow Spreadable Cheese Wedges
(50 Cal 3g of Fat, and yummy…My favorite is the Swiss.)
Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwhiches
– (Skinny Cow products were even in the 17 Day Diet book) The Strawberry Crème ones are delicious. These are an awesome dessert. If your going to have dessert enjoy it but just make it lesser calories.
What’s with the lean cow labels? Lol. Apparently there are skinny laughing cows out there…lol.
Italian Ices – 100 Cal No sugar,
Special K Bars – Vanilla Crisp or Peaches & Berries.
Few Crackers and a serving of Nutella
Fiber One Yogurts – 50 Cal, 5g of Fiber
Pretty much those are my snack choices and I use the Nutella sparingly. It is so delicious and has a lot of protein. I hope that I stick to my diet and continue forward.
When it’s Snack time what do you Choose to Eat?
