I hate to sound like a complainer as I feel that's all I've been doing this week but I'm totally frustrated with this whole nutrition thing. I can't afford to follow the diet set out by Spark so I have just been living off the same foods every meal every day. This is getting very boring. I swear if I never eat another wrap again it'll be too soon. Well so today I tried something new. I had a bagel with cream cheese. Not too bad but when I added that to my Caltrate, V8, and banana my breakfast ended up over 500 calories! I was appalled! So then I stressed for the rest of the day about what I could and couldn't eat. I did have a great dinner of Chilli Cheese Dog Nachos from Hungry Girl. That plus my V8 was only 268 calories but that ended my day 14 grams short in the protein department. I ended up having to wait for several hours to get hungry again then eat half a can of light tuna to get my protein. I don't know if I should really be this stressed and worried about what I am and am not eating. I'm doing great in the fitness department having far exceeded the goals set for me in the minutes and calories burned for the week. In fact I'm quite enjoying the exercise. If you could just eat whatever and then keep working out I would do great but I know you have to have the whole package. I'm just really wondering if this is going to be something I can sustain for the long haul or if I need to find some other way of eating healthy without boring myself to death.
