If I were to write a journal entry everyday about my thoughts on what I was eating and doing to become healthier, I’m sure it would go something like this:
This morning I decided I would start Shakeology again, being as I got on the scale this past Thursday and it said I had gained 3 pounds. I figured it had something to do with water retention, but I guess not since the scale said the same this morning. It’s no secret I don’t drink enough water, but I’ve played this game with my body for at least 14 years now, so my body should be used to the amount of water I get everyday.
Along with my Shakeo this morning, I made egg whites with a small spoonful of pico de gallo and about a 1/8 cup serving of 2% shredded cheese. Major protein! Beverage was dark roast PLAIN coffee.
Snack was 12 almonds. Solid.
Lunch was a you pick two meal from Panera. ½ portion of the chicken cobb salad with avocado, with NO dressing and ½ portion of the broccoli cheddar soup. 430 calories total.
Late afternoon. Trying to drink water…..on bottle #2. Part of me thinks I’m so far behind on drinking water that I will never physically be able to catch up.
I’m thinking of all the “healthy eating” things I SHOULD have done already today, like how I should be on water bottle number 3 or 4 instead of 2, how I should have not forgotten my oils at home so I could have had lemon in my water, how I should have packed snacks to fill my work fridge because it’s completely bare.
Oh and my afternoon snack was 2 fun size mini packs of skittles. Normally not my thing, because I don’t really eat a lot of candy at all, but they sounded good today. 150 calories. Technically, that’s an alright calorie count for a snack. Good nutritionally? Uhm NO, but technically not a complete fail.
And now we come to dinner. It’s really hard for me to figure out what I want to fix. I’m totally jealous of all the people who meal plan like a boss and stick to it. I don’t do well with the same meals everyday and Brock and I aren’t big leftover eaters, so we usually just fix enough for the 4 of us.
Then there’s the fact that I never know what’s going to sound good ahead of time. Please tell me this changes once you get into a good meal planning routine?
We ended up having a take n bake pizza from a local grocery store. I only had 1 piece though. Not terrible, but not what I would consider ‘clean’. I’ve also started buying the supreme version of pizza bc it comes w veggies on it. Sometimes I even add more!
Literally as soon as I was done eating, I
jumped on our exercise bike for 45 minutes.
I’m also proud to report I got about 6 of the 8 glasses of water I needed yesterday!
So that was my day! What would your food diary look like?!
