Looking at the Self Magazine Drop 10 challenge in this months issue and I'm already feeling overwhelmed by the menu options. It's great - don't get me wrong - but I didn't plan ahead for this and I don't have the right groceries on hand to make a single breakfast on their menu. I don't really think it should be that complicated.

I do see that I've been getting lazy and although I've been counting calories pretty religiously my meals have lacked proper balance - AND I need to bump up my calories a bit. Shooting for 350 calories a day for breakfast will make a big difference for me! I've always attempted to keep my breakfast and lunch as lo-cal as possible so that I could SAVE calories for my night bingeing. A 1500 calorie per day plan would give me a lot more room to increase my nutrition and it makes good sense! I could really see it being a lifestyle change for me.

SO I will be raising my calorie counts on fatsecret today - I'll be making a better attempt to balance my meals and include more healthy fats. Cheers!
