Hey there! Can you hardly sit still over the fact that tomorrow is Friday?
Not only do we have big plans this weekend (one of which involves me putting on heels!), but I got that giddy almost done feeling while at work today. Next Wednesday is my last day in my department and I am looking forward to new beginnings.
Anywho, it has been fun getting back into the swing of food journaling through photography this week. The act really does make me think about what I am eating, but I don’t want to make it the bread (grain free of course) and butter of my posts.
I think I will still talk about the various things I want to talk about, and make brief mention of what I ate the day before in my summary snapshot form.
One thing I will note though, is that while most of what I eat makes it on the blog, there are things that don’t.
For instance, I like to go all share-bear on this muffin with his paleo baby food.
Yummmm, figs. I make that same face when I eat. It’s why Dan married me.
I also have water with magnesium or herbal tea throughout the day, neither of which I feel like snapping photos of.
While these things tend to go unpictured, if I take more than one or two bites of what Wrigley is having, I get myself a real serving and call it a snack or meal. I am still practicing this habit though. Thank goodness Wrigley eats so healthy and I am never tempted by goldfish crackers or chicken nuggets!
Breakfast: Pumpkin Porridge, and a bit later some coffee
Lunch 1: leftover guampki from my Mom, although she replaced the rice with cauliflower (go Mom!)
Lunch 2: leftover Primal Pizza with some pepperoni slices
Post-Workout Snack: coconut milk, scoop of protein powder, blueberries, almond butter
Dinner: beef with taco seasoning and stewed tomatoes over a bed of spinach with 1/2 an avocado
Snack: 2 dates
Breakfast: 2 eggs, 3 slices of British bacon, onion, zucchini, broccoli, mushrooms, eggplant, Cholula and coffee
Lunch: leftover taco meat from Monday over spaghetti squash with 1/2 an avocado – hated this and did not eat it all
Afternoon Snacks: 2 dates and dark chocolate – snacky, snacky, snacky….
Dinner: Honey Ginger Apple Shredded Pork with broccoli roasted in coconut oil – over ate, and not sure why I went back for seconds, weird day of mindless eating
Breakfast: Pumpkin smoothie with coconut cream, coconut milk, protein powder, almond butter, pumpkin and pumpkin pie seasoning – there was coffee as well
Lunch: apple with our on-the-go dish these days, which includes, tuna, peas, Cholula and a bit of coconut oil (I know peas are not a typical paleo item, but I don’t have any issues with digesting them)
Snack: yeah, I fell victim to the candy jar in my office, not proud, but honest
Snack: 2 hardboiled eggs, sauerkraut, and cherry tomatoes (weirdest combo ever!)
Snack: 2 dates
Dinner: Almond Butter Chili with zucchini and Cholula (bet you didn’t see that one coming!)
Snack: usual dosage of super dark chocolate
The weirdest thing that I am noticing about my eats, is first, I eat way less green than I thought I do. And second, my snacking isn’t nutritionally smart 90% of the time. I need to find a way to pack more super foods into my snacking.
Remember my big talk about lifting three days a week now? Yeah, that isn’t happening this week, and do you want to know why? Well, I lifted on Monday and planned to lift yesterday, but got into the locker room at the gym and noticed I didn’t have my heart rate monitor chest strap. So I bolted home to go play with the baby, but I did take him out for our daily walk, anddddd I did spin on Tuesday night. So activity is still happening!
With that, I have to go make up my day of life.
Tomorrow I will be back with an Experiment 27, 1 month check-in.
