Day 9 of 30: Getting Back Up

Friday was the kind of day where you get home and barely have the energy to get into bed. No workout, but I did four hours of painting. I didn’t food journal, either.

Yesterday, I continued slacking off. No food journal, no workout.

Today, I did a core workout and water was pretty good. What did I eat?

  • oatmeal with cinnamon, 3 tbsp raisins, vanilla, 1/3 c skim milk, and 1 tsp brown sugar
  • grande skinny peppermint mocha (love these!)
  • 1 can (2 servings) of clam chowder (I had a craving)
  • 1 mini Mars bar (Halloween leftovers)
  • 6 baby carrots
  • 2 c romaine lettuce with Caesar dressing
  • 1 slice homemade lasagna
  • 1 piece garlic bread
  • 1 Twisted shot (in celebration of the Riders win)
  • ripple chips and onion dip
  • 1 peppermint brownie

So clearly things went downhill as the day progressed, and, man, do I ever need to start eating more fruits and veggies.

My eating plan tomorrow?

  • oatmeal with raisins for breakfast
  • green monster smoothie, too – 1 c skim milk, 1 banana, 2 c spinach, 1 scoop protein powder
  • lasagna, baby carrots (NO garlic bread)
  • Oikos yogurt and apple
  • chicken breast with salsa and a little cheese, brown rice, green beans

Still not super-super healthy, but an improvement.

Keeping a food journal has made it apparent that I need to do more planning. I’m relying on eating out too much and choosing unhealthy snacks way too often. We also have a shortage of fruit and veggies in this house on a regular basis, which sure doesn’t make healthy eating easier. With Christmas coming up, I think it’s important that I take steps now to make sure that I keep any weight gain to a minimum. I plan to create a meal plan for the next month, fully expecting that it will have to be tweaked as I go along because we all know that the holidays can get out of control with extra activities.

What are your favourite fruit choices during the dark days of winter?
