Spectrum day 37- breakfast
Beverage: cafe con leche made with espresso, 1 cup skim milk and xylitol.
Weigh in: 271 Another pound lost! That makes 41 pounds total and 21 since Spectrum Day 1. I have found that if I have a nice, substantial breakfast, a healthy lunch, a small something before 6 pm, and get some movement in during the day, I see improvement on the scale. I have always heard that one shouldn't eat past 6pm, but it seems so hard to integrate that schedule of eating into a busy schedule. I am purposefully trying to adhere to this schedule and am finding that it is true for me, as I am seeing improvement on the scale. Another thing I am trying to do is to "be present" when partaking of any meal or snack. I appreciate how the food looks before I eat it, and how it tastes during the meal. This makes meal more of an experience rather than quick, mindless, gobbling down of food. I try to not do anything else while eating other than eat. This causes me to not only enjoy the meal, but find it more satisfying in the end.
I have plans of getting some serious MNM in today, as I do some manual labor around the house. I will update you along the way.
