Well as it’s been roughly a month since my last food journal you can guess that things are going fantastic. Sarcasm aside it’s been a rough couple of weeks and I am very disappointed in myself and my lack of progress. Part of it is on me, I have not been nearly serious enough about taking care of myself and seeing through important decisions in so far as my health (physical, mental, and otherwise). Part of it though… I don’t know what’s been up this year but it’s been filled with depression spikes. Not just the ones I’ve always had, but extremely bad ones.
Either way, I need to focus on what I can do and stop being lazy about it.
Goals for this week: Get serious about cutting out Redbull. It’s finally cool enough that the excuse of “it’s too hot for coffee” is complete bs. Also get serious about my drinking (which I’ve discussed). A drink every once in a while is one thing, drinking several times a week and heavy drinking is not. Don’t drink my calories otherwise. I am not giving up coffee, can’t do it, but other than that and glasses of milk my beverages need to be of the 0 calorie variety. Wear my Fitbit every day and hit 5,000 steps. Try to get more vegan and vegetarian foods in my diet. Be careful about my sodium intake. Snack healthy and don’t over indulge in snacking. GO TO THE GYM
Lunch: Miso soup with egg, green onion, and mushroom. Small veggie eggrolls. Voss water
Dinner: Blue Apron- Seared Steaks with Mashed Potatoes and Sauteed Carrots. Milk
Snacks: Crackers and cheese, tea
Breakfast: Overslept… again
Lunch: Toast, avocado, egg, green onion. Milk
Dinner: Spaghetti with garlic bread and salad. Milk
Indulgences: Coffee (very little it was making ill)
Fitbit: Yes+ (wanted to shoot for extra since I did not eat well today)
Too many carbs today
Breakfast: Smoothie with berries, mango, pineapple, greek yogurt, and whey powder. English Muffin
Lunch: Avocado with green onion
Dinner: Pasta, chicken, mushrooms, with pesto
Snacks: Almonds, Triscuits and cheese
Workout: 35 mins on elliptical (5 of it cooldown) 2.54 miles. This was a hard workout for me. I barely made it.
Tuesday night I started getting a migraine and it was in and out all day Wednesday so not a good day for me.
Breakfast: WAY overslept. Still recovering
Lunch: Turkey and cheese wrapped in butter lettuce. Pickle spears, a few chips
Dinner: Blue Apron- Spicy Shrimp Pasta, milk
Indulgences: Redbull 😦
Fitbit: Yes but I didn’t take it off for my workout. I have been trying to take it off because “exercise mode” doesn’t work on it and I want my step count to be a certain amount in addition to workouts. However, I did go over the 5k goal by a decent amount to try to make up for it. (It was at roughly 7k when I took it off)
Workout: 35 mins on elliptical (5 of it cooldown) 2.81 miles. Much better
Not my best week but far from my worst and glad to be back at keeping the journal and getting on track
