health kick week one
Week one of my new health kick.
I picked the most boring week ever to document my food. Rob was gone almost all week, I did not feed him so I ate the same thing all week, taco salad and tuna.
I had a protein shake with spinach, 1/2 a banana, and fat free milk everyday. If I start my day with a shake I make better food choices all day.
I did not work out enough the week, I don't know why, it was just one of those weeks. I will do better moving forward.
I kept my calories between 1200 and 1400 calories every day except Tuesday. Tuesday was not a good day for eating, it was yet another birthday and I made another cake. It was good, really good. I had to eat a piece, a bite was not going to do it.
I kept all my meals around 400 calories, then I used 200-400 calories for snacks (almonds and oranges), treats, and alcohol. I counted and recorded everything here. I measure or weighed everything I made for myself with the exception of the lentil soup (lentils, olive oil, tomatoes, veggies and broth).
I am trying to make good choices but allow myself a little wiggle room so I can stick to it, thus the 200-400 fun (snack/treat/booze) calories a day.
I am going to try and not have so many sweets this week and work out more.
If you want to see the detailed list of what I ate you can read about it here, but I wont bore you with all the the details here.
Week one, not a major success but I am off to a good start. I am really thinking about everything I put in my mouth. I think I will do another collage of what I am eating this week for, it did help me to stay aware.
