I am going to stick with my regular exercise plan - 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. My calorie tracker has adjusted my daily calorie goal due to my loss. I went from 1450 a day to 1330 a day. At first that was daunting...some days I am hungry after I have eaten my 1450...how will I eat less? Here is what I have planned:
- Replace mid-morning snack bar with an apple or fat free yogurt - this will cut from 20-30 calories
- Replace afternoon snack bar with carrots - this will cut about 70 calories
- Eat more veggies with my evening meal - cut back on starch - I can probably cut another 50 calories there
- Replace evening snacks with an apple, carrots, or yogurt - that is about another 50 fewer calories
Over all, as long as I replace what I am snacking on now with more fruits and veggies, I can easily cut those 120 calories out without feeling deprived!
I know these aren't great pictures, but they show the difference in my size since last year.
