The Diet

Food Journal
[Don't expect anything too exciting here...this is mostly for me. I want to see what I eat each day and see if I can attach any causes for poor choices (ie emotional eating, change of schedule, lack of activity).]

[Wednesday] March 14, 2012
Breakfast: cereal (2 bowls, naughty)
Lunch: a power smoothie & baked pretzel

Today was so stressful. I had a big test and only a small 1.5 hour window to fit it in. Add work and class and not enough time to study and you have me- a hot mess. Definitely didn't have time for a real breakfast or to pack a lunch.

I was so busy today, I didn't have time to snack and by the time I got home I ate a bowl of cereal and went straight to bed!

[Tuesday] March 6, 2012
Breakfast: cheerios, grapefruit, slimfast
Lunch: pita pizza, sun chips, orange juice

Today, Chris and I were running errands like crazy! We started at 8am and didn't stop until about 4. Being out and about makes it hard to make healthy choices, but I could have done worse!

[Friday] March 2, 2012
Breakfast: 2 biscuits and half a jamba juice

Today, I consider the most successful day thus far...all three meals were there and there was very little snacking. I'm feelin' good!

[Thursday] March 1, 2012

[Wednesday] February 29, 2012
Breakfast: Slimfast

Well, ChangeOne was right---I ate a wimpy breakfast and I ended up eating a lot more, and a lot less healthy.
[Tuesday] February 28, 2012
Breakfast: 1 egg-white omelet (with cheese, onions, and salsa), 1/4 cup of cereal, 1 cup of skim milk with slimfast powder
Lunch: A grapefruit
Dinner: 2 tacos (no cheese), potatoes, and a smoothie [Taco Bell]
Snacks: ice cream, hot lips

Today was a roller coaster day- I was quite moody and I definitely did a lot of "comfort" eating. Boo. Tomorrow is a new day.

[Monday] February 27, 2012
Breakfast: 1/2 waffle with a small amount of syrup, 1 egg, 1 glass of milk w/ slim fast powder
Dinner: Pizza Buffet- 3 pieces of pizza, 2 breadsticks, and a slice of dessert pizza
Snacks: hot chocolate, 1 cup cake

Chris and I are in love with Cocoa Bean...its this really naughty cupcake shop. We definitely need to set a limit on how often we eat there. Also, I wasn't really hungry until dinner- I think my work schedule is messing with my eating schedule.

[Sunday] February 26, 2012
Dinner: Hawaiian Haystacks, steamed broccoli, rolls, pomegranate/cranberry juice
Snacks: hot lips, popcorn

Today I fasted. It has become very clear to me that I can't do this alone. I hope that I can receive the strength that I need to achieve my goals.
[Saturday] February 25, 2012
Brunch: 1 bowl of cheerios, 1 grapefruit, 1 glass of water
Dinner: Cereal, carrots, and water
Snacks: pringles, a cup cake, a cup of hot coco

I woke up later than usual (10:00am) and I didn't start to feel hungry until about 1pm- still digesting the TR. I had an upset stomach most of the day. Chris and I went out for dessert after visiting the temple (cup cake and hot coco).

[Friday] February 24, 2012
Breakfast: 1 bowl of coco pebbles, 1 grapefruit, 1 bottle of water
Lunch: 1 chicken sandwich, sm. fries, diet dr pepper
Dinner: Texas Roadhouse....3 rolls, part of a blossom, a baked potato, applesauce, and steak fries

Eating out is hard! Even though I tried to be "good" I still ended up eating so many calories! I feel slightly better about it because I worked out for the first time this week. 

[Thursday] February 23, 2012
Breakfast: 1 doughnut w/ 1/2 a glass of 2% chocolate milk
Lunch: 1 grapefruit
Dinner: Baked potato w/ cheese, green onions, salsa, chives, and Italian seasoning
Snacks: HotLips, Nutrigrain Bar, a Reeses Heart, 2 Frooties 

Today was better than yesterday, but not by much. I was feeling guilty about breakfast (boss brought in doughnuts at work) so I had a smaller lunch- which led to more snacking. Learned my lesson there. Also- little to no water today. That must change!

[Wednesday] February 22, 2012
Breakfast: 1 bowl of cheerios (w/skim milk), 1 instant breakfast (w/skim milk)
Lunch: KFC popcorn chicken meal w/ Pepsi and potato wedges
Snacks: Popcorn, Diet Mountain Dew, a few Frooties, a Reeses Heart, 7 HotLips

What happened? Today was different than yesterday in the sense that I watched a lot more TV (yesterday I only watched for 45 minutes). It killed my productivity and my motivation. Chris and I also went to a movie and decided to skip dinner to "save room" for popcorn and soda. I would give today a D-. 

[Tuesday] February 21, 2012
 I've never been very good at this, but y mom suggested that I try, here goes. 
Breakfast: 1 bowl of cheerios (w/skim milk), 1 instant breakfast (w/skim milk), 1 B Vitamin
Lunch: 6'' sub on white bread (ham, pepperoni, swiss, onions, pickles, lettuce, sweet onion sauce), BBQ Pringles, 1 glass of water
Dinner: 2 eggs, 1 12'' carrot, 1 grapefruit, 1 cup of hot cocoa
Snack: 1 Vitamin Water (0 calories)

Today I feel like I did pretty well. I was conscious of my portions and tried to limit snacking. However, it is quite clear that I need to drink more water!
