Well I made it through Day 1 of my little “Simpy Filling Experiment” and so far so good. My plan was to take a picture of all the food I ate today, but my husband ended up reformatting my phone, which left me without my phone for a couple of hours at dinner time, so I only got pics of breakfast and lunch. But here ya go:
Breakfast was 3 eggs fried in 2 tsp olive oil, with some leftover grilled asparagus. Lunch was a big veggie salad with some grilled chicken breast on top. I also had a small afternoon snack of 1/2 of a single-serving bag of Trader Joe’s 94% fat-free microwave popcorn, and my dinner was 2 salmon cakes and a couscous and veggie salad. Too bad I didn’t get a picture of the salad, because it was pretty impressive looking! 🙂
The verdict for Day 1? It went well. I feel good that (with the exception of the micro popcorn), I ate non-processed, whole foods today and I didn’t crave any sweets or junk food, which is a big victory for me. I have to admit I’m slightly hungry right now (it’s almost 7:30PM as I write this), but that’s a really good sign, because whenever I’m in weight-loss-mode, I always feel a bit hungry this time of night.
I expect the rest of the week to be a little bit easier than today because I’m going grocery shopping in the morning and will stock up on the things I need. Today I just had to scour the pantry and fridge and put together whatever I could. I made it work, though! Hooray! Kinda looking forward to Day 2….
