Coffee with skim milk and a sugar, two soy lattes, an 8 ounce glass of orange juice, and a 5 ounce glass of red wine…all contribute to about 500+ calories in a day! and it’s not even food; definitely something to watch out for when our 10 days is up.
And a word on grains as we head toward our goal of Friday: “THERE IS NOT A SINGLE HEALTH-PROMOTING SUBSTANCE PRESENT IN GRAINS THAT YOU CAN’T ALSO GET FROM VEGETABLES AND FRUIT. Not a single vitamin. Not a single mineral. Not even fiber.” Plus if you have a bunch of grains on your plate, that is leaving less room for vegetables. 🙂 (source: It Starts With Food).
We are gonna make it. I’m mostly posting this reminder for myself, as my daughter walks by with a small bowl of cheez-its, which have never looked better to me! How sad is that. Keep your food logs going — maybe we should burn them Friday night?! Seriously, we’ll have one more food log share Friday after your group workouts at 5:20pm and 6:00pm.
Reminder for tonight: bring gloves and wear a sweatshirt. You also may want your ipod on your arm for tonight – you aren’t in the basement the whole time. 🙂
Lastly – keep sending me recipes, ideas, and pictures of your food, and I will keep posting. Check out Tanya’s brownies today.
