For breakfast, I chose the lowest calorie option of my normal 3 breakfast options-oatmeal-so that I would have a little more calories later in the day. Looks really appetizing, doesn't it-lol? We stopped at Starbucks after we arrived in Denton, so I chose the green tea-unsweetened-which has virtually no calories.
For lunch I was expecting pizza-it tends to be the go-to answer for feeding large groups of students. We were actually served Chick-fil-a sandwiches along with chips, cookies, and sodas. I ate the sandwich, and then ate an apple and water I had brought with me for just such an occasion. I am glad I prepared ahead! Later I was getting hungry, so I ate a 100 calorie pack of peanut butter crackers that I had brought with me. Again-I am very glad I planned ahead.
For dinner we ended up stopping at Jason's Deli. They have a whole section of the menu with lighter options, and it lists the calorie count right on the menu for these options. So I ordered a half of one of those sandwiches, along with a cup of chicken noodle soup.I am pleased that at the end of the day I came in at just under 1200 calories. I never would have expected that to be possible, but I keep proving to myself over and over that if I just plan a little bit, it is possible.
