McFatty Monday..clean eating week 8

I started tracking my calories again on Wednesday using My Fitness Pal..and I'm already seeing results. I'm eating 1560 calories per day, plus whatever I earn from walking, which I started doing again on Wednesday night. I've realized that, on most days, in order to have an after dinner snack, I need to walk to earn the calories. I've been doing about 2.5 miles at a pace of 3.8 mph and it feels great. It's relaxing to walk around and listen to music and it makes me feel better.

I mentioned giving up the morning smoothies last week and I did that. Here's what my average meal plan looks like.

Coffee with truvia and 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 cup old fashioned oats with 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1/4 cup frozen blueberries, and truvia

Snack 1:
1/2 cup nonfat greek yogurt with 1tsp honey, 1/8 cup sliced almonds, and 1/4 cup strawberries

Either leftovers, individual meatloaves, or a sandwich (tuna made with hummus, grilled chicken, or pork tenderloin)

Snack 2:
Celery or carrots and hummus

Varies..a clean eating dinner with a veggie and sometimes brown rice or a sweet potato

Snack 3:
Shredded wheat with almond milk and raisins

I'm still enjoying cooking and we've been doing a lot of clean crock pot meals. I'm feeling good and motivated right now. I'm ready to get out of the 190's again!

Current weight: 191.2
Weight lost this week: 2.4 pounds
Weight lost since starting clean eating: 7.6 pounds
