3/9/12- Food Journal
Today has been exhausting. I'm glad to report that this is the first day I haven't had heart palpitations. Oh, I didn't tell you about those? Yeah. I've been stressed to the max this week with a ton of things all coming down the pike and I need to make a to do list so I can cross those things off. I would get so stressed out that I'd have heart palps like I did when I was my most stressed at my "normal" job just before I quit because I was sure it was killing me. I think one of the bigger sources of my anxiety has been this adding calories thing. I'm terrified of the scale tomorrow. I know one week isn't long enough for my body to process the change and I just pray there's not a gain. I've been KILLING the workouts this week. Almost 4500 calories burned this week in formal exercise. I know there are a lot of factors working against me this week so I just have to control the things I can and know I'm doing what I need to do and I'll give it another week regardless and make smarter choices on snacks next week. But that's not why you're here...let's eat.
Breakfast was a cinnamon raisin english muffin with 2 tbsp of Better N' Peanut Butter, 1 banana and an omelet made of 2 egg whites, 1 egg, half a slice of lacy cheese and 1 tbsp of caramelized onions.
Lunch was tuna lettuce 'tacos' with raw veggies and 1/2 tbsp of dip, honeycrisp apple with apple dip, fruit salad, TJ's Fiberful Peanut Butter Chocolate Oat Bar and iced tea.
Dinner was going to be something else but I didn't like the sodium content I was going to end up with so I changed it. We had chicken tacos with caramelized onions and spicy refried beans.
Snack will be a Skinny Cow with 2 peanut butter oat balls.
Calories for the day, 2033 which will average me out to 2320 per day for the week. No exercise today (not scheduled) but I was up and running most of the day so that had to burn a little somethin'.
Tomorrow is clean out the suitcase day after I swing by an antique store and hopefully pick up these 2 side tables I found. I'm going to TJ's or Whole Foods so I can get some arugula. There's a great salad from NYE, I want to try to recreate.
What's on your agenda for the weekend?
