Food Journal: 2/25- 3/3

So my year did not get off well as far as hitting my health/weight loss goals. However, I am pushing forward and focusing on the future. It does me no good to worry about what I didn’t do if it stops me from doing what I need to do. Instead of worrying about what I haven’t done yet I need to worry about what I can do from now on.

I need to do a major push to cut back on drinking, sodas, and Redbull. All three were major problems last year (and the years before) and I want to make big changes. I also want to make a push on salt and sugars. I also need to watch how much butter I use when cooking, it adds a lot of calories and fat that I don’t need. Outside of that just general, fewer carbs, starches, bad fats, eat out less, eat more vegan/vegetarian foods, all the things needed to lose weight and get healthy.

Sunday 2/25


Breakfast: Egg and cheese on bread, some hash browns on the side. Milk and coffee
Lunch: Jasmine rice with black beans, shrimp, lime juice, cilantro. Blueberry Lemonade
Dinner: Leftovers from lunch, squirt
Indulgences: Redbull, sunflower seeds, a bit of popcorn

Monday 2/26

Breakfast: Part of a breakfast smoothie, toast
Lunch: Salad, breadstick
Dinner: Burger- It’s pretty bad that I only made it to Monday before doing my meal out, and that it was such a bad one. However, my sleep schedule being so messed up just drained me of energy and I was craving red meat. It is not often that I do so I don’t tend to ignore it. It also means I failed in my no meat Monday though. Oh well, nothing to do but do better next week.
Snacks: Triscuits and cheese- not sure if this is a snack or indulgence as Triscuits are not the best crackers but…
Indulgences: Redbull, sunflower seeds

Tuesday 2/27

Breakfast: Egg and bacon sandwich on English muffin
Lunch: Quinoa, spinach, mushrooms, feta cheese, lemonade
Dinner: Veggie fried rice, eggroll
Snacks: Banana, coffee, milk, Triscuits
Indulgences: Redbull, sunflower seeds

Wednesday 2/28

Breakfast: Sloppy paps: So clearly I am not going to hit my only eat out once a week goal this week. However, I just did not have the time nor energy to cook
Lunch: None
Dinner: Goat burger with grilled onion and a handful of chips (I made an herb potato salad which did not turn out well so only had a few bites), milk
Snacks: Banana
Indulgences: Redbull *sigh*, sunflower seeds, reese’s, chelada

Thursday 3/1


Breakfast: Scrambled eggs and toast. Milk and coffee
Lunch: Fried rice (meal prep) and egg roll
Dinner: Goat burger with grilled onion and chips

Friday 3/2

Breakfast: Scramble eggs with chives and cheese and English muffin, milk
Lunch: Eggroll
Dinner: Pork chop and toast (our veg got ruined)
Snacks: Goldfish
Indulgences: Redbull, sunflower seeds, beer

The Redbull issue was fairly bad this week. I have not been sleeping well at all and it’s hard to make it through with a big switch to my caffeine intake. I am taking steps though and it has to start somewhere. Drinking was much better. I did have a few beers here and there (as listed) but considering what my alcohol consumption has become that was a huge improvement. I need to keep it up with that, cut out the redbull, keep working out and do some better habits with cooking. All and all not a bad start though.
