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 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.

  1. Girl, don’t stress it too much. I have found it easier just to have a ton of good food around. I don’t plan meals anymore. I think what might help you most is setting times to eat. Just set a timer on your watch and then eat..even if you aren’t hungry.

    I can tell you from that description, that you aren’t fueling yourself for that night time job, plus running, plus weightlifting. 😉

    Love ya,

    • I do have a ton of good food around for the most part. I’m just never hungry enough to want to eat every few hours. Therein lies my problem. Sometimes It helps me to look at someone else’s menu to grab ideas for my own!

      Love you profile pic!!
