Day 77 -- Cutting Carbs Sucks :-(

So, here's the menu for Day 77 (yesterday). 

A quick sidenote, if I may:
When I visited with Kali last week, she asked me to limit my carb intake to 5 times a day (for example, two slices of whole wheat bread or one spoonful of mashed potatoes both count as 1).  To put that in perspective, I've been eating 8-9 carbs per day.  So... cutting that almost in half has been a bit of a challenge.  I'm finally starting to adjust, but it's such a pain!  It's just one more thing I have to think about when planning/making my meals for the day. 

I'll post more on this topic later tonight.  But now, I'm off to the gym.  5 mile run and some weights, here I come!!!

Nicole's Daily Menu
Multigrain Cheerios with 1% milk

Some cashews (note measured out, and I know I ate WAY too much)

2 Plain rice cakes with Babybel French Onion Spreadable Cheese
Strawberry Chobani Yogurt
Chicken quesadilla made with fat free sour cream

I love your re-commitment. You can so do this. And thank you for taking time to motivate others out here on similar, personal journeys. It's great to know you're not alone when the going gets tough. Keep it up :)

Just a question... how many calories are you eating per day? Are you working out most days?

Rachel -- sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. I shoot for 1,400-1,600 calories per day, per my nutritionist. I like to keep it lower, though. Also, I try to work out at least four times a week -- more if I can.
