With total intention of making this a monthly post; here is my food diary for the last week in September….
7:15 am- Breakfast – Woke up feeling super hungry. Made some coffee (black w/ vanilla creamer (no sugar added)). Had two english muffins (double protein from Thomas) w/ cocoa spread..so good. This coffee will follow me to work.
11:00 am – Snack- Feeling hungry AGAIN, I’ll have a Chobani vanilla yogurt. Also, working on my 24 ounces of water for this morning.
1:00 pm – Lunch – Brought some leftovers: lemoned mahi mahi w/ soybean pasta in alfredo sauce and asparagus.
3:00 pm – Snack – Finished my 2nd batch of 24ounces of water, working on my third. The remainder of my banana oatmeal bake. (Click on link for recipe) This was my first time baking it with banana and chocolate chips- and it was delicious! Every time I make it, it just gets easier and easier.
5:30 pm – Home from work. Went apple picking this past weekend, so we have like 60 apples that need to be eaten, so I have an apple and some plaintain chips.
7:00 pm – Dinner time for the kiddo; I steal a few bites from his soybean pasta and veggie burger pattie (he loves it!).
9:30 p.m.- Dinner – Did some at-home ab work (not as intense as I had hoped) and now I’m hungry. I warm up quinoa burgers and I’ll have that with two slices of bread (thin layer veggie chipotle mayo, spinach, thin slice of Sargento provolone, quinoa burger)
7:30 am – Breakfast – Thomas english muffin with PB&J and coffee protein shake. No time to make coffee, pick up Starbucks on my way to work.
9:30 am – Finally my coffee run! Grande Blonde is my go-to : )
12:00 a.m. – Snack/Lunch – Quick protein bar before heading to a lunch meeting. I know they’ll be serving pizza. I’ll eat my bar now, so I don’t stuff my face with pizza because I am pretty hungry. I’ll just have a few slices (had 3 slices).
3:00 p.m. – Snack – an apple.
6:00 p.m – More snacking – Join the kiddo with a piece of cheese – We LOVE cheese!
7:00 p.m. – Split a banana with the kiddo.
9:00 p.m. Back from the gym and I don’t feel like making anything for dinner, so I’ll just have a protein shake and call it a night.
7:30 a.m. – Working from home, so my eating will get out of wack. Make coffee.
9:00 a.m. – Greek yogurt with almond butter. Topped with grapes, granola & chocolate chips.
11:00 a.m. – Leftover apple, my kiddo started before he went down for a nap. I eat A LOT of his leftovers.
1:00 p.m. – Things have been a bit crazy. I’ve snacked on a few crackers, but now I’m hungry, so I eat the remaining of the soybean pasta w/ alfredo sauce.
3:30 p.m – Roasted some veggies, so I’ve been picking at those all afternoon (zucchini, broccoli, carrots, & tomatoes). Made some Mac & Cheese for the kiddo as well, have a few bites as I’m feeding him.
8:30 p.m. – I ran 6.5 miles in the morning, so I don’t go to the gym tonight. It’s dinner time. I grill some salmon, put it on a bed of spinach, with couscous, add some roasted veggies, and hummus. It’s delicious- Fell like I haven’t had a salad in a while.
That’s it- Call it a night
7:00 a.m. – Breakfast- I am super hungry, been up since 5:30am (kiddo alarm) I have two english muffins w/ almond butter and berry spread. I’m stuffed, think I chowed down too fast.
12:30 a.m – So I forgot to bring my regular mid-morning yogurt snack, so I’m pretty hungry – Just Salad, Veggie protein wrap it is. This place is sooo good!
3:30 p.m. – ‘An apple a day, keeps the doctor away’ …another apple.
5:30 p.m. – Home with the kiddo and he’s always looking to snack. He gets a slice of cheese and so do I.
6:30 pm. – I’m planning to go to the gym, so I don’t want to eat anything heavy. Continue to snack with the kiddo – we share a coconut yogurt cup and I have some grapes. Seeking some sugar to push to though my workout.
8:30 pm.- Home from the gym…great leg day! Now for a protein shake (banana, protein powder, peanut butter powder, rolled oats w/ water).
9:00 pm – The protein shake didn’t quite fill me up, so I make a spinach salad with roasted veggies, whole wheat couscous, hummus, and the last piece of salmon.
7:00 am – english muffin w/ almond butter and some jelly. No time for coffee, grab Starbucks on my way to the office.
11:00 am – I have some errands to run at lunch time and I’m already feeling hungry, so I have my banana creme yogurt to hold me over.
1:30 pm. – Finally lunch time. Pick up a wrap from Freshii with a whole lot of goodness inside (can’t recall what was in there).
4:30 pm- Home from work. Another apple, we still have like 30 more.
6:30 pm- planning on going to the gym, so I don’t want to eat anything heavy. I go for a peanut butter protein bar.
7:30pm- feeling super sluggish, I decide to go to the gym in our building- I end up having a great workout! That’s two days in a row I feel like not working out, and once I’m in motion the pump kicks in!
9:30 pm. – Lots of water and a protein shake. Shower and call it a night.
12:30- Lunch time- planning on going out for lunch with the fam, I put a salad together to hold me over- spinach, couscous, veggies, hummus, and tuna.
4:30- late lunch/ early dinner- We’re out in the city and my hubby wants a burger from Shake Shack. I opt for the place next door and get a arugula and grain chicken bowl. Good, but I’m could’ve gone for a single cheeseburger.
5:30pm- There’s a donut joint next door we can’t pass up- we get half a dozen. We share one on the walk back to the house. 5 more to go.
9:30pm.- home from the gym. Grab a hard-boiled egg and then make a protein shake and go to bed.
