Eating- 2/14

Mine sucks. How about yours? I’m going to keep track of my eating for a couple of weeks, so I can see where my calories are, or are not. This is not going to be fun, considering my eating really is bad. I have been trying to eat cleaner and better, but I still have lots of room for improvement.

I need a set menu that I can just rotate week to week, something that I don’t have to put a ton of thought into and something that I know has xx amount of calories in it. Any help or input would be greatly appreciated!

Soooo, I woke up and had half a bagel and a glass of OJ around 4am.

6am- 2 fat cookies (don’t ask..my mil makes them and they are my favorite cookie to have with coffee). These cookies are very dense and filling.

1pm-a pack of peanut butter crackers and more coffee

5pm-a clementine, and a half of a protein shake (this was after working out)

645- 1 chicken finger. Yes. 1.

8-a few packs of saltines from work, hershey kisses (6?) and some jelly bellies. Yep. You got it.

I do have a small turkey burger packed with a sweet potato (update– eaten). I also have a star fruit,another clementine and string cheese. Have eaten none of that yet.

Folks, this is typical. This is how I eat. I will usually eat a full dinner that is clean, a glass of wine and that is about it.

My intentions are always good the night before. I think, I will have oatmeal, or egg whites with veggies etc..etc.. a nice clean lunch and a clean dinner. NEVER EVER ends up that way. When I do try to eat sometimes I find that I cannot eat very much without feeling full. I really do need to pay close attention to my intake and really try to normalize myself. I should just work on making a 2 week rotation menu, so that I really don’t have to do any thinking. Just make and grab. Any ideas? I don’t even know what my calorie intake should be. I may want to lose about 5 more pounds and then just maintain.

319 Days. Valentines Day.

Another shitty night of sleep last night/this morning. Woke up at 3 I’m guessing, it was 3:55 when I finally looked at the clock. Was having weird dreams about Shrek chasing me. Yes. I said Shrek. WTH is going on?!! I got up around 4:15 had a half a dry bagel and some OJ. I was wishing and hoping I would fall back asleep, and I did and It probably was about an hour before my alarm went off. So, yet again, I got the kids up and ready and went back to lay down until 1. NOPE, did not get any solid stretch of sleep, more like on and off, with some tossing and turning thrown in for good measure. I even took Benadryl, prior, I. just.don’t.get.it.

Seriously, it wears you down mentally and physically. How much longer can I do this? Meh. I don’t know if I’m better forcing myself to stay up once I’m up on my days off? Or what to do anymore.
