Struggling With Protein Goal

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

Went to the gym early today as I wasn't going to be able to get out on the push bike, I managed 40 mins on the treadmill and 30 mins on the powerbike. Had to take son in law for an interview today (he'll know on Friday if he's got the job or not). He was in there for a hour and a half, good job I took a magazine to read.

Popped to the supermarket and got some root vegetables as I forgot to pick them up when we went shopping last night despite them being on the shopping list, hubbies fault he will insist on distracting me and asking me questions when I'm trying to concentrate and I know he thinks he's helping but it's just annoying.

Danced about the house while cleaning this afternoon, that always gets the blood racing round the body emoticon

Managed to stay on track with tracking food and water so everything is going well apart from struggling to hit my protein goal without going over on calories, need to do some research to find out which foods are high in protein but low in calories, I do peanut butter and legumes but it's still not hitting that goal.
Bubble bath and early night tonight

    I have the same struggle with protein. Here's a SparkPeople article re: non-meat protein sources that might be of interest.

    Why not plan and enter your dinner first, the night before perhaps, making the protein the central part of the day, then fit breakfast and lunch in to stay within your calorie allowance. You have to plan it to buy and cook it anyway, it's simple to add it too.

    Cottage cheese! Unless you're vegan... I'm an omnivore so I don't face the same challenges for protein.
