no way, may day 1

Friday, May 02, 2014

had a great day yesterday. i focused on my goals. i did not get up at 4 to work up. i had a bit too much fun the night before. date night with the hubby. it had been far too long since we had one of those.

i did get my lunchtime walk in though. and all my water. i had no soda and no alcohol. i stayed on plan and made a delicious dinner of stuffed peppers and baby bellas last night. so tasty!

i need some help with breakfast. i follow a 3 hour eating plan. here's how my morning goes:

5:30-6: oatmeal with blueberries and a glass of milk

9:00: 2 hardboiled eggs with fruit.

the issue i'm having is that breakfast doesn't always hold me over til my snack. any ideas what i could add with oatmeal to hold me over? if i have eggs at 6 i'm good, but i don't really want to be eating 3-4 eggs every day. haha. i have yogurt later in the day so eating yogurt with my oatmeal as well is kind of redundant. maybe cottage cheese? i just feel if i add something small it may help, i just don't know what. whole wheat english muffin or toast seems a bit much on the carbs with the oatmeal.

by the way, "no way, may" is the mantra i've taken for the month. i'm trying to tell myself that when something less than healthy comes my way. hopefully it works!

    Can't eat too much Greek yogurt, non-fat. Get the 4 cup containers and frozen fruit in the 2.5 cup packets. Serve 2 cups of yogurt and the full bag of fruit, thawed of course, and that is a real stick with you breakfast, lunch or dinner.

    I add cubed apple, walnuts and cinnamon to my oatmeal sometimes.

    I can't give any advice here because I suffer that same problem and just keep telling myself that I only have to hold out until lunch then I can be comfortable for the rest of the day. I try to distract myself or get out on a walk so I won't focus on every hungry minute. I add a half-tablespoon of walnuts to my oatmeal, a lot of calories, but they are healthy calories. I also add lots of cinnamon to my oatmeal and that is supposed to help because something in cinnamon helps stabilize blood sugar.

    I had the same problem and reversed the yogurt for breakfast with honey and/or granola cereal in the yogurt. It actually surprised me as I was not even thinking about snacking. A bagel with lowfat cream cheese works as well. Maybe, because I think it contains so many calories, however everything in moderation. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
