For the past week and the half, I have been starting every morning off with a smoothie (except last Saturday when I knew we were going to be hiking up 2 mountains… than I had bacon and pancakes). My smoothies consist of a lot of fresh fruit (I am really bad at measuring and normally make too much of it), a scoop of whey protein, some Greek yogurt and 3-4 ice cubes. It makes two servings and the calories come out to be around 220. Sometimes I throw in some spinach or kale to get some more vegetables into my diet.
This was a strawberry and blueberry smoothie that I had this morning for breakfast.
Then for lunch, it is normally some sort of sandwich. Yesterday I was haying so I knew I needed something a little more filling and would give me energy. So I made up some turkey burgers (I just get the jenny-o prepackaged ones even though they are annoying as hell to pull apart). For the bun, I used multi-grain sandwich thins for an additional 100 calories.
Then my favorite dinner for far this week has been Thai Coconut Red Curry Shrimp. So Delicious. I will get pictures and the recipe later today!
I eat about 1200 – 1400 calories a day and am pretty active on most days. On days I am not so active, I try to eat less but I always seem to eat less when I am really active because I am just too busy to eat… which is weird but makes sense.
I am still hopeful that I can reach 207 by the end of the month!
