So today is the first day of LJay’s challenge of no refined sugar, as of this moment I am fine. Mind you I usually don’t start off with lots of refined sugar in the morning. I have my bowl of Vector and Large Coffee with Milk and splenda at Tim Horton’s. This morning I got up early excited to start this, hit the kitchen and reached for my Vector. A voice in my head yelled out “HANG ON SON! Tut tut tut” this would be a no no of course.
After rooting through the fridge I pulled out an egg and some berries, my Wife always has plain yogurt in the fridge and checking the ingredients no sugar or the ones that end in -ose. Started the water for my green tea, put my egg in the microwave in our get cracking poacher, put a couple of table spoons of yogurt on my berries and grabbed 1/2 of whole wheat pita bread because my bread had sugar according to the ingredients.
As I was doing all this it clicked in I have always added splenda to my tea as I find it bitter without it, lucky for me LJay answered quickly on my honey in tea is ok 🙂
Now I am sitting here looking at my food log, it is down 200 calories already? This even includes my banana I always have just before I start work as I setup my station for the day! Egg about 77 cal, 1/2 pita about 85 cal, berries and yogurt about another 70 to 80 cal and tea with a drop of honey, roughly 15 cal.
I will have to monitor this a little closer so that I do not end the day to low in calories, I do have weights tonight but supper is either chicken or tofu stir fry so lots of protein.
