Accountability Blog Day #3

Saturday, July 09, 2011

For the next week or two I plan to blog my food and exercise--it will be boring (if anyone reads it-lol) but it is what I need to without further ado here is Day #3.

Friday July 8, 2011

Life stuff:
I worked a 10 hour shift today. I tend to eat more when I work. I am not sure why.

Today I tracked my food and ate healthy. I ate more then I intended to, but I still was within my spark calorie range (although I was above my own personal calorie goal which I have set a lower than the spark suggestion). So, I wish I had eaten a about 300 less calories, but what I did eat was 95% clean and 100% no binging on concentrated sweets such as candy 9which was readily available today at work). A victory compared to the last month and a half to say the least!

~ 1 cup Fage non-fat yogurt mixed with fresh blueberry puree and stevia
~homemade banana raisin muffin
~coffee with stevia and ½ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Snack #1:
~Coconut orange quinoa (quinoa made with OJ, 1/2 fresh orange topped with a sprinkle of coconut and cinnamon)

~ 1 cup Homemade veggie pasta salad with 2 oz. chicken
~1 cup grapes
~steamed brocoli

Snack #2:
~1/3 of a peeled cucumber cut up
~5 cheery tomatoes
~2 Tbsp. hummus

~Thai coconut chicken
~1/3 cup brown rice
1/3 cup peas
~1 small banana

Snack #3:
~mini lemon zest lara bar
~0.5 oz cashews

I also had lots of water a couple of glasses of crystal light and some herbal tea with stevia.

~Elliptical 30 minutes
~walk 5 min

Not a great day,,,but not a horrible day either. I just need to tighten up my nutrition a bit. It took me more then one day to lose my healthy lifestyle momentum, so it will take more then one day to get it back.

Onward and upward!

    I'm the same way if I blog it I am more consistent, I like to pretend I have followers that will keep me accountable for stuff! Keep it up and remember we're all watching you!

    I eat more when I'm working, too. When I'm at home I don't even think about eating!

    Keep up the great work and have a wonderful weekend.

    The Coconut orange quinoa sounds awesome! I'll have to try that. Sounds like you're doing pretty good on your tracking and sticking to your plan.

    Certainly not a bad day at all, Laura; the food sounds good. I think you did very well, especially with a longer shift.

    One day at a time always works for me, but I know you will be successful in your quest.

    Hope your weekend is going well.
