This is his nutritional pyramid from his website (which I just bookmarked)...
Makes sense right? I know it helped me! Going off of his pyramid, I think I am going to aim for 50% diet of vegetables. 20% of fruits and legumes (beans) at 10%. So that's 80% right there! Then I will add nuts and whole grains in at 5% each.So that leaves me with an extra 10% of my diet that I will splurge on items like fish, fat free dairy, maybe an egg here or there. Red Meats, sweets, cheese and processed foods will only be eaten once a week if that. Maybe if I go out to eat with my husband I'll enjoy something out of the ordinary?
I told Marc it would actually be interesting to go on a REALLY long hike and pretend I'm a caveman searching for a steak! LOL! I could then reward myself after my hike with a small steak. New York Strip if it's over 4 hours HAHAHAHA!Source
So what do you think about my plan for going forward after this is over? I also want to really step up my exercise. I stopped going to the gym at 7am because honestly a 16 hour day is just too long, and my membership expired. I needed sleep too! However, now that the days are (maybe) going to get warmer, I'd like to start implementing long workouts on days that I have time. So that would be Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I lost most of my weight without a structured gym setting, so I'll be ok! I just have to realize that not every person gets the luxe opportunity to work out whenever they want to! I do take the stairs everyday at school! 6 flights, and then another 7!
Day 14, 3/5/12
Weight Loss: Damn stuck at 11! I really can't complain about that!
Pants: I feel great! I need more jeans!
Mood: Kinda sleepy today, my sleep pattern got askew this weekend, so I think that's why.
Other: (Read the comments from the last post to understand this better) That tea really helped! Then I got those things Frickin' Fabulous told me to get. I haven't felt that BAD feeling since I was a little kid. I felt so VIOLATED. They both worked like magic!
Pear, 2 bananas
This lovely Corn, Avocado, and Tomato Salad: Which I thought I made up the recipe, but I obviously didn't, since my photographs are really not so appetizing like this one! Source
Leftover Spaghetti Squash, Tomato sauce, and broccoli from yesterday.
Tomorrow marks my last day! I'll be working on a meal plan to start Wednesday! I'll probably do a double post today :)
