JC-Day 4

Okay, so the food isn't too bad. The portions on the other hand are another story. I know that was part of the problem. I was taking in too many calories from the wrong foods in large portions. The emphasis is on filling my plate with more veggies and getting in more water, etc. There's a salad at every lunch and dinner. Unfortunately, I'm not a huge fan of cold salads. Give me a steaming hot side of broccoli or cauliflower any day. So, that's what I've been doing. I've been supplementing my Jenny meals with steamed green beans, asparagus and broccoli.

As all of you know, I have a huge sweet tooth. Well, from time to time, I get to have dessert. Tonight's was chocolate cake. It was okay. The dab of frosting was a little cloying and lacked the full rich flavor of a finely crafted buttercream. The cake itself was moist not unlike a Hostess cupcake. It was about as exciting as one, too.

I'll keep you posted on how I do and what I like. Sunday will be interesting as there will be no mini-burgers, no Doritos, no cheese fries or triple chocolate espresso brownies. PRAY FOR ME, PLEASE!!!!!!!!

Hubby and I keep thinking that maybe doing Jenny Craig or Nutrisystem for a month would help us lose a few pounds and get used to eating smaller portions. I'll be watching closely to see what you think of the food!
