And so I begin again…. again. After a variety of bad choices and poor excuses, I knew I needed to start fresh. That is why I started the day count back at one while still acknowledging that this is my third month.
I have some new foods to eat this month and it has given me a much-needed boost. It was great having the opportunity to choose my own foods. I know now that I have a pantry and freezer full of things I enjoy. If you decide to try Nutrisystem, I really recommend looking into plans that give you more choice over your meals. They are more expensive, but you’re more likely to stick to the plan if you like what you have to eat.
Now onto my foods for day one…
I started my day with a Chocolate Frosted Donut. It didn’t have that same buttery quality I love in a good donut, but it did have the cake and frosting you expect in a donut. It was surprisingly moist for a packaged donut. The frosting seemed a bit oily, but still a decent chocolatey flavor. I’m happy that I ordered two of these.
I had the Beans and Ham Soup for lunch. I have had this before and enjoyed it. Bean soup has always been one of my favorite comfort foods. I added a (new to me) cracker selection. These Flatbread Crisps are amazingly good! I have to keep hiding them so Lord Tyrneathem and the Prince don’t eat them all before I get more.
I went a bit off plan for dinner, but we were all in a breakfast mood. I made a packaged country gravy (only 40 calories a serving). I made my own biscuits using Bisquick… I measured out the 1/3 cup serving and added milk to get the right biscuit consistency. This made it really easy to track calories for my portion. I did egg substitute with the Hormel bacon pieces. The whole meal came to 435 calories. I think that was pretty good for a splurge!
I had the Carrot Cake for dessert. I have been wanting a piece of carrot cake for months, so I was really looking forward to this. It was a bit dry and the icing had that same oily quality as the donut, but the flavors were still good.
Okay… and I finished the day with a hiccup. My husband was eating a Klondike bar and I caved. I still finished the day around 1400 calories, so I did well… but should have had more veggies and water with less sweets.
