What I Ate Wednesday Macro Style

Time to bring back the WIAW! It's kind of nice looking back on the day and seeing that everything I ate was made at home and is so colorful and yummy looking. I'll admit, it's a lot of work-- or at least a lot more work than eating out, but totally worth it. B weighed in this morning since it was our one week mark and he's already down 3 pounds- woohoo! That right there makes it TOTALLY worth it to me. I'm down a little over a pound but don't really expect to see huge changes on the scale, I'm paying more attention to body fat and the way I look in the mirror. 

Meal 1- 3 egg whites, 1 piece turkey bacon, Thomas' whole grain English muffin (29c-7f-22p)
Meal 2- Silk dairy free yogurt and 1/2 cup oatmeal with berries (53c-9f-12p)
Meal 3- Bison burger on whole wheat bun (30c-13f-30p)
Meal 4- 4 small lemon protein bar squares and almonds (25c-13f-22p)
Meal 5- Cod, baked potato and brussel sprouts (39c-2f-27p) 

This puts my overall macros at 174 carbs 44 fats and 116 protein and fiber at 27g. I don't usually share my macros because I don't want people thinking just because this is what I'm doing it will work for them, but I want to keep myself accountable and be able to look back at my numbers week to week. I'm sure over the next 9 weeks my macros will change but as long as I'm seeing progress here, there's no reason to fix what isn't broken!
