It's a Bread Day!

I'm eating a lot of bread today, 2 slices with breaky, 2 slices with lunch, I'm guessing I should find an alternative for dinner but I'm craving a tomato sandwich. I can make the tomato sandwich South Beach friendly but before I do that let me count how many calories I've had so far today.

2 toast (200 calories, 3 gr fat, 6 gr fiber)
1 apple sauce (50 calories, 0 gr fat, 2 gr fiber)
1.5 tbsp of Fleischmann's Margarine (made With Olive Oil)(90 calories, 10.5 gr fat, 0 gr fiber )

Total breakfast
340 calories
13.5 gr fat
8 gr fiber

2 toast (200 calories, 3 gr fat, 6 gr fiber)
3 eggs (240 calories, 15 gr fat, 0 gr fiber)
1 sl cheese (60 calories, 4.5 gr fat, 0 gr fiber)

Total Lunch
500 calories
23.5 gr fat
6 gr fiber

So far the total for today is:
calories are: 840 calories
fat: 37 grams
fiber: 14 grams

Good God those numbers are horrible, not in the calorie sense but in the fat grams sense. Why am I eating this way today, because I have no veggies, no groceries and no car to get them, I"ll be shopping tomorrow night for food so I'm ad libbing so to speak. That's too much bread for the South Beach Diet, way too much so I'll look for an alternative for dinner tonight. I might make myself a turkey burger without the bread and perhaps eat a tomato salad without the lettuce, I must check to see if I have any frozen veggies left.

I find writing things down like this gives me a better understanding of what it is that I'm eating, on the SBD I don't really have to count calories but let's face it when you eat 4 slices of bread in one day you're not really following the plan to a tee so I should be aware of what it is that I'm putting in my mouth.

I'm going to go online and see what menu I can prepare for myself for the next week so that I can follow the plan the way its designed and I betcha I lose more weight, not that I'm complaining a 3.5 pound loss is a good loss.

Oh, I just got back from walking the dog, we actually went for a 20 minute walk, I think she's tired, I'm so so, the problem with her is that she's a wild little puppy of 52 pounds who has never been leash walked, we live on a farm so she gets to roam around (under supervision of course) so I'm trying to teach her to walk and it's not obvious but hey we'll get there I'm sure.

That's it for today, I've got stuff to do like work, clean up a bit, since I finally managed to clean my home completely now all I'm doing is maintaining things which is nice.

Thanks for stopping by!

Yum, I love my bread!!

You are doing AWESOME and you're giving me MAJOR competition :o) thanks for lighting a fire under my fanny!! <3

P.S. Regarding your older post, my husband has a HARD time sticking to his low carb diet when he is working. He works 11 hours a day and often grabs something quick in between jobs, poor thing. But since he's on his feet all day long, he burns off the fast food. Lucky him!!

You should try out the sparkpeople.com site, it's a great place to keep track of your daily food intake :)

Hey Sassle! I love sandwhiches, but I don't eat many of them. Since I have went off atkins I have had ONE (yep, really ~ just one)PB sandwhich as a preworkout meal. I did buy some double fiber bread ~ so I won't feel so guilty when I feel like that Grilled cheese and tomatoe soup! (My yummy comfort meal I missed all winter long).

I am gearing up my mind and my body for balance in all things. This morning I woke up in a panic because I could feel my body retaining water. ( I did it to myself yesterday). Fixable!! It is all fixable!

It really is true if we don;t have healthy choices in the house we will eat whatever and bad just to get by. Hope your food shopping went well. Step away from the Stroehman. lol
Try Ezekial bread.
