Yesterday for dinner we had grilled salmon, stir-fried veggies and rice. For the salmon I grilled it in two ways – the top fillets just have olive oil, seasoning salt and lemon pepper (for my kiddies). The bottom fillets have a chili sauce seasoning (for me and hubby). The veggies are frozen – but were surprisingly good – I stir-fried them with garlic, sea salt, lemon juice and soya sauce. The rice pictured is brown rice (am finally trying to make the switch), I still made a lot of white rice for the rest of the family.
Today for dinner I made Korean spicy chicken (following the recipe I used here), lots of lemon-y dressed salad (I’m craving lemon and sour food today…so strange!) and brown rice. I did take second helpings of salad and chicken – I’m so full!
I’m trying to shift my last 6 pounds of baby weight – and I’m hoping some dietary changes will help me.
Here’s my daily plan:
-Protein smoothie with organic whey powder for breakfast
-Egg white omelet with spinach and cheese
-Big mug of green tea
-Porridge with skim milk
-Dinner: Protein (chicken, fish or beef) with veggies or salad and brown rice
-Fruit for dessert
I already do cardio twice a week, and I’m going to add a 30 minute session of treadmill power walking on an incline.
I’m only going to do this for 2 weeks, and then if I see good results, I’ll re-evaluate. I currently weigh 112-114 lbs and would like to go back to being 106-108 lbs. (I don’t expect to lose all the weight in these 2 weeks – I just want to see if these changes are working for me).
UPDATE: This definitely worked for me – by June 1st, I reached a weight of 101-103 lbs (lower than I first intended) and have maintained this weight for a month and half)
