So, I am slowly trying to incorporate some chicken back into my plan.
Today, I had a weight training class- then 3 egg whites, 1 yolk. Veggies. 12- more vegetables 130- small salad with grill chicken and vegetables 630- another salad with grill chick, veggies and olive oil.
I am really low on money so I was trying to be as cost effective as possible and lets face it, chicken works when in a pinch.
I would have preferred grill fish, but did not have any and I had to get to the library to study more.
Had more energy in general but felt a little "stuffed"... hope this goes away the more I get back into my plan.

I would have eaten 2 eggs for breakfast instead of opening up 3 eggs and wasting 2 yolks. That helps to save money too.
There's nothing wrong with an O eating chicken. I would have included some kind of fat with the lunchtime salad. If the chicken contained some fat (naturally and/or the way it was prepared) that would have sufficed. Dark meat is naturally higher in fats and usually less expensive than chicken breasts.

I do pay for the gym, but I love it. It is my place of safety and it will be the last thing I give up. Sorry, just being honest. I truly have a passion for the workout classes and it makes me happy when I go.
At this time, I do not have family and I am alone alot, so the gym is where I release any toxic energy built up from my studies or life itself.
Chicken... Ruthie, I have read numerous reports that chicken is high in Poly-unsaturated fats, but not sure about this.
Eggs... I do not like the taste of the yolk which is why I eat the whites. Just me I guess.
