I have to say that yesterday was a success!! I kept my sugars and carbs within the BFC's 15/6 guideline and here is what I ate:
Breakfast: My morning shake; decaf coffee w/ cream, tea
Lunch: 2 hot dogs (used 2 Sandwich Thin halves as the buns - thanks for that suggestion Kay!); mayo; mustard, sauerkraut; cheese
Snack #1: (3pm): green olives
Dinner: 2 fish tacos
Snack #2 (6:45pm) almond butter with whipped cream
Yes, I was alittle heavy on the salt yesterday but my main focus was to stay within the BFC's 15/6 guideline and feel satisfied. I do plan to get more creative with low-carb dishes while still eating some of my favorites (just watching portions and keeping them within the magic number 15/6). I really want to try the recipes that Amber just posted (especially the meatballs with zucchini noodles)!
I have to tell you that when I woke up yesterday, I wondered if I was picking the right week to get all gung-ho about this because I knew I was heading into a week of birthdays (my husbands was yesterday and mine is Friday) - but you know what? When you're ready, you're ready!!! Go with it! I realized that the BFC is a lifestyle and I can make it work no matter what is going on in my life!! My husband chose ice cream sundaes for his birthday dessert and I knew that I could have a bite or two but instead I chose to enjoy some almond butter with whipped cream and you know what?? It wasn't about the dessert I chose, it was just nice to sit and talk with my family and enjoy celebrating my husband's birthday! :)
I'll leave you with a photo of the birthday boy opening his presents while the kids watch. The funny part is that the boys got him a WII game that they have been wanting to play!! :)
Here's to a great BFC week everyone! We can do it!!!
