This month my challenge is to post every thing I eat so my Spark buddies can see what I eat and I am then accountable to them. Some times I want to put unhealthy foods in my mouth but I think " what will my Spark buddies think?" And yes I don't eat in. It goes back in the cupboard or in the trash. I have some pretty powerful Spark buddies who have been supporting me for awhile now and I don't want to let them down. Yesterday I ate something unhealthy for breakfast, donuts and I have been having them for quite some time now. I know they are not healthy for me and are not a good way to start my day so I am going to cut them back to once a month. I am going to start my day off with whole grain protein, fruit and yogurt. That is my plan starting tomorrow. I didn't think of it until after breakfast. I take my walk after breakfast and that is when my brain storming happens. Today I didn't have a donut for breakfast I had a bacon sandwich and for snack will have my fruit and yogurt.
I exercise over 120 minutes a day so my daily total for cal. is between 1740-2090. Yesterday I ate a total of 1987 cal. This is more then I want to eat, I want to eat on the low side of my daily cal. range and am working to do just that. Yesterday I ate:
Coffee with non fat milk and 3 sugars-90
did not eat a snack at ten like I do most days
blt with turkey bacon-332
chicken with brown rice soup-110
1 cup blackberries-75
coconut sorbet 2 servings-380
grilled chicken breast-156
I don't usually eat after dinner but tonight I did
5 graham crackers-295
I feel that I am still making choices that are not the healthiest for me and will work on that more. I love to shop at the farmers market and pick up tons of fruit but am feeding it mostly to my husband who has lost 14 pounds since last weigh in in June. It is good that he is eating it but I need to take care of me. So starting right now, right this minute I will take care of me number one!!!!!
