I suppose it would be a good idea for me to be more accountable with what I eat, so I will start a food journal too. For now I will just leave it on this blog. I am not a nutritional expert, but I do my best to eat lots of salads, fruit, nuts, vegetables, beans, some soy products, and whole grain products. I also try to stay away from white processed foods. At this point in time, I don't have a lot of extra money, but I still do my best. I'm not very good at counting calories, protein, fats, etc. but I guess I will get better. I also have a habit of skipping, (not on purpose) lunch, or a snack before I workout. so I hope this journal will keep me in line.
9:00am oatmeal w/ 2 splenda packets, and 1/2 tbls Earth Balance margarine; small banana;and a cup of black coffee
2pm Someone was supposed to drop off my lunch, but they got too busy
3pm: small banana, and 1/2 of a clif bar and a small water
6pm: leftover vegan roast, stuffing,& potato (I used Earth Balance on my potato
9pm: ate a piece of vegan pumpkin pie w/ a bit of vanilla soy ice cream
I'm pretty much cleaning out the fridge of the leftovers from Thanksgiving, and I don't generally have too many foods on hand, but I can see that I need to do a lot better. I drank a lot of water at the gym, but not sure how much, and I guess the Earth Balance was my fat for today.I know it wasn't exactly a good source of fat, but oh well. I'm not sure how much protein was in the food that I ate today.
The devotion of thought to an honest achievement makes the achievement possible.
