10 days in and a happy weigh in this morning! 195.8 lbs! I’m just happy to see the scale going in the right direction even if it is only a 0.1 lb loss.
Meals were on point today. Same as the other days this week except today was salmon at lunch instead of cod. I made a disappointing discovery in myfitnesspal. I had selected a generic salmon option and it said that 4oz of salmon was 100 calories, 21 g protein and only 1 g of fat. Since salmon is a known fatty fish, I knew that couldn’t be true. I did a little more research and found that the macros for atlantic salmon are actually 262 calories, 15 g fat and 28.5 g protein, which seems a little more realistic. So unfortunately, my macros were a bit off on Monday but that’s ok. To adjust for today, I took out the whole eggs in my third meal and that meal will just be egg whites and spinach. It doesn’t really look any different.
At the end of the day, I was seriously craving some sugar and I gave in to have this:
Luckily, I was able to fit it in my calories for the day and it only slightly skewed my macros. It was so worth it! It won’t become a daily thing, but it did make me think that I should probably introduce some higher carb days for my mental sanity and just to keep my body fueled. Something to consider if I hit a plateau for sure!
I got a good workout in in the morning and spent the rest of the day working and catching up on errands.
Just an average day but consistency is key and I’m sticking to it!
