So when I first decided I needed to change my life, and it was a decision, I knew I just needed to get a few weeks “in the zone”. No matter what diet you follow you get those times when you are in the zone – your eating is on point and you feel great.
If I get a few weeks in the zone I am usually good to go – I’m in for the long haul. Yesterday was definitely an in the zone day and I felt on top of the world.
1 Hard Boiled Egg – 2 Smartpoints
1 Premier Chocolate Protein Shake (for coffee creamer) 2 Smartpoints
1 Overnight Oats – 5 Smartpoints
I was hungry, like really hungry when I woke up so I had a hard boiled egg before I left for work. You see I leave for work at 3:45 am (it’s terrible, I know) so I usually eat breakfast at work. On days like this I have learned that my body needs fuel if I am that hungry, so I eat. I ate my oats once I got to work. Yeah, I know, I eat those a lot but what works works 🙂
I was satisfied all morning long so I didn’t have a snack.
So if you all read my post What Kelly Did you know how I’ve lost 57 and counting pounds. This is my 30 point day series, where I show you what I’m actually eating 🙂
Breakfast: Yup, I had pizza for breakfast yesterday 🙂 I woke up early, which I normally get up at 3 am so that tells you how early I got up. I’m bad at sleeping but I’m working on it.
1 Tumaro Wrap: 1 Smartpoint
1/2 cup 2% Kraft Mozzarella Cheese: 5 Smartpoints
1/4 cup Wildtree Pizza Sauce: 0 Smartpoints
Green Peppers, Onions, Broccoli and Cauliflower: 0 Smartpoints
Breakfast Total: 6 Smartpoints
So I’m a food prepper for sure – but sometimes things don’t work out and you have to use leftovers and other things on the fly to make sure you stay on program.
Breakfast – 7 Smartpoints
No matter how crazy my day or week is one thing is for sure – I always make sure I have grab and go breakfast. Growing up with parents who were from the south breakfast was an integral part of our culture. One did not simply skip breakfast. That was sacrilegious.
I have this Strawberry and Cream Overnight Oats recipe that is super good, but usually I go with a cup of plain, non-fat greek yogurt, 1/4 cups old fashioned oats, a dash of vanilla, a pinch of stevia, and whatever fruit I have on hand. I make 3 of these on Sunday nights (they’ll stay good for 3 days) and then have the rest of the week to make the other two for the work week.
When you use the plain non-fat Greek yogurt you get a whole cup of the yogurt and the whole thing is only 5 Smartpoints!
This is my favorite breakfast during the week because it keeps me full until lunch.
I also have to have my coffee and I use one bottle of Premier Protein (usually chocolate) as my creamer for 2 smartpoints.
Usually when people that haven’t seen me in awhile they ask how I lost so much weight. I did address that in the post What Kelly Did, but the next question is usually “but what do you eat?”
So here’s an example of one of my 30 Smartpoint Days:
