My Fit Foods 3 Day Challenge: Day 3

Progress:  Down 1.7 pounds day to day.  Total lost on this challenge to date: 2.7 pounds.

WW = Weight Watchers Point Value

8:15 a.m. - Breakfast: Breakfast Tacos
"Corn tortillas, 5:1 ratio eggs, lean ground turkey, a touch of real cheese and onions."  (Gluten free)
Size small: Cost $4.85/WW 6 Points/240 calories

Very good, but like I said yesterday I prefer sweeter breakfasts first thing.  This one had a lot of onion so I was self conscious all morning that I had onion breath.


Black coffee & glass of water

11:00 a.m. - Handful of Trail Mix w/dried cranberries, almonds and cashews (Not MFF)
Estimate: Cost $0.50/WW 6 Points/210 calories


12:30 p.m. - Lunch: Lean Lemon Turkey
"Lean ground turkey seasoned just right, served on a bed of converted rice and topped with fresh asparagus spears.  This is a crowd favorite."  (Gluten free and spicy)
Size small: $6.85/WW 6 Points/220 calories

This is one of their most popular dishes.  It is really simple but yummy (rice and meat).


San Pellegrino Limonata, 90 calories

4:00 p.m. - Snack: Egg-O-Licious
"This super clean egg salad coupled with celery and gluten free nut crackers is simply egg-o-licious." (Gluten Free)  One size only.
$4.00/WW 7 Points/250 calories

I hate mayonaissy egg salad, but this one was egg-cellent...I couldn't resist!


Water

7:30 p.m. - Gimme More Chicken Salad
"Added due to popular demand, this fresh romaine salad with finely chopped chicken breast, Greek yogurt, a touch of real mayonnaise, chopped celery, dried cranberries, dried tarragon, a dash of salt and pepper will leave you screaming for more." (Gluten free)  One size only.
$8.25/WW 8 Points/310 calories

So good.  I was craving some salad after all that turkey.  Was surprised that I didn't miss salad dressing at all.  The squeeze of lemon was perfect!


9:00 p.m. - Cup of hot green tea, no sweetner (Not MFF)

Total Spent for day: $24.50
Total WW Points:  33 (I'm supposed to get 26/day)...but I can deduct 5 points for gym = 28
Total Calories: 1320  My goal when losing weight is 1200...I burned about 200 at gym = 1120
Activity: C25K Week One-Day Two: Walk/Run for 30 minutes. 

My review:  I'm really happy with the results I've had.  I still had some weak moments today, but overall I'm not starving or even overly hungry at meal or snack times.  FYI...doing Jenny Craig I would be so hungry most of the day.  I like this food and little kickstart into eating right so much that after working out this evening I stopped at My Fit Foods and purchased food for 2 more days.  Taking a break this weekend because Ashley is visiting!!!!! (I'm late in posting so I've been doing this challenge Mon-Fri)  I won't go crazy, I promise, but I will enjoy myself and probably have a little splurge. 

One more thing I want to point out in doing this, I've also cut out alcohol these past 3 days.  I'm not a huge drinker anyway and rarely drink during the week unless I have a girls happy hour, but still I wanted to point it out because I think it makes a difference when trying to diet.  Not only is alcohol empty calories, but when I drink, it encourages me to overeat bad food and snack...especially late at night...no, no!  I'm going to continue reporting on my progress for the next two days.  Hope this isn't too boring for you...

  2. I love the info! A few questions I was wondering if you would address in a future post - I love that you are posting prices - how do you feel it compares to your "normal" grocery bill? And, is your husband eating MFF too or keeping a separate diet? I would just be interested in seeing how it works in your household.
