Ashamed as I am to admit, but I used to eat one of these for breakfast almost daily. Seriously... like, REALLY, almost every day! I would stop on my way to work and pick up one of these, along a medium sweetened raspberry iced tea. The most important meal of the day, and this was what I was working with!! Wow...
One Dunkin' Donuts Sausage Egg and Cheese Croissant Sandwich, while super yummy (don't judge me, I do miss the taste of them!!), equals about 660 calories. Add another 60 calories for the tea! Considering it's been suggested I stick to a 1300 calorie diet plan, I was using a big chunk of that with breakfast alone!!
This is what my breakfast looks like now...
Yes yes, y'all... I eat a small bowl of Special K with about 6 ounces of Soy Milk. And to drink?
Okay, so its Brita-cleaned Tap Water in a Smart Water bottle, but I do drink 33.8 fluid ounces of the stuff with every meal!!!
I've gone from consuming 720 calories, to a much more modest 220 calories for breakfast: Special K provides around 120 calories, 6 ounces of soy milk is about 88 calories, and the water? Zero calories, baby! Whoo Hoo!!
And what's great is that I am just as satisfied of hunger with the bowl of Special K & water than I was with the breakfast sandwich... I just feel less like crap afterwards! LOL
So this will be the first of (I hope!) many more posts in my Miss Moon Gets Healthy series. I am truly very serious about doing this, and I will not lie, I need your advice, your suggestions and tips, and most importantly, your support! Can I get a "You Can Do It, Audrey?!?!" :)
