Two Healthy, One Notso

It's Wednesday! and we are long overdue for a weight loss post, I haven't been actively trying to lose - just trying to eat fewer potato chips and more fruit and veggies.

But today, I had two healthy meals (methinks) and one not so healthy.  The day started with a cup of tea - Earl Grey, black and some cereal.  It doesn't look very good in the photo since I mixed it a bit before taking the picture - but it was yummy.

The strawberry-kiwi idea I stole from my Mom - we had that with our cereal in Spain.

Unfortunately lunch was a satisfying but not so healthy mortadella and pickle on sourdough sandwich and 4 leftover gyozas.  I had a strange dream last night of tons of oversized people slathering butter on their bread, so made sure to use very little.

Then for dinner, a high protein meal of chicken breast, chickpeas, shrimp, tomatoes and a few olives.  No dressing or sauce, but yummy.

Pink Calico - High Protein

Yes, it's the same bowl - I did wash it though.

Today's healthy snacks: 2 yogurts and 2 bananas (for my potassium levels)
Beverages today were: Earl Grey tea, green tea, water with lemon

So to end the day, I did a weigh-in and was pleasantly surprised to see that I am down 5 pounds from my initial weight! Now at 158, so another 28 pounds to go to reach 130 which is my doctor's recommendation.

I am hoping to lose a bit faster over the summer months:
  • more heat = less eating
  • more body conscious clothing = less likely to want to eat
  • better weather = urge to go for walks

Today, I'm linking to Wednesday Whites and Welcome Wednesday.

  1. Wow, that is great, Mun!!! Keep on slimming!!!
    I also put a yogurt on top of the cereal which makes it super-yummy. I had cereal today with sliced pears, kiwi, platano, and strawberries topped with strawberry yogurt and milk. The cereal was some All-Bran plus as well as some All-Bran fruit and fibre (little cushions!). It was very filling and will last me until later on in the day.

    I also had a lemon-flavoured yogurt which is made in our town (La Pobla...).
