I thought I'd give this a try so on Friday I just drafted an email to myself with everything I was eating for the last few days. I drank water throughout, but sometimes noted it when it was more of a "conscious effort" to drink. Here goes:
7:30 am-- drank about 8 oz water, Ate 1/2 of a kreme filled krispy kreme donut on the way to work
8 am -- felt gross about it, but ate the rest of the kreme and threw away the remaining half of the donut. ate 2 prenatal gummy vitamins
9 am -- ate 1 banana with coffee. coffee had about 3 T (heavy hand today!) of natural bliss vanilla creamer. drank 16 oz water
11 am-- 1.25 serving of Trader Joe's Chicago mix popcorn (this stuff is so addicting)
1:30 lunch-- 1 serving steamed lentils scrambled with 2 eggs in light olive oil. 4 T reduced fat cream cheese, 16 oz of sparkling water
730 pm-- glass of white wine while Salmon in oven.
8 pm -- 1 serving salmon stuffed with couscous and dill, 1.5 serving Kale sweet potato & squash pizza
11am-- 2 bowls Crispix with 1% milk
1 pm-- 4 abelskivers with strawberry jelly (getting bored, starting to binge)
2pm --2/3 of a sausage egg white thing, it was gross.
4 pm -- 7 Swedish fish, 1 serving Chicago mix popcorn
7 pm -- 2 slices pizza from whole foods, 4 pieces of John's sushi, 1/2 a beer
10:30 am - 3 pieces 45 calorie wheat bread toast with land o lakes olive oil butter, 2 fried eggs, coffee with natural bliss vanilla creamer
1pm - 1.5 servings of Chicago mix
3pm - 1/2 mini panettone w butter, handful of grapes
6pm - lobster ravioli with vodka sauce (trader joe's) herbed salad mix with tomatoes, carrots, pumpkin seeds and balsamic glaze.
7 pm - glass of pinot noir
8 pm - 1.5 servings of Chicago mix
so my general thought is I ate a ton of carbs this weekend, and not nearly enough protein. I haven't logged this all yet (for some reason writing down is easier than logging for me), but I know my ratios are terrible. But my other thought is that it could have been way worse. Besides going to Whole Foods for the pizza slices, I didn't eat out at all, which is a big accomplishment for a weekend. I even see the pizza as mini-win, because I wanted pizza, and normally would have caved and ordered a whole pie and had leftovers tempting me. I also think on weekdays I need to have a good snack planned for around 4 pm, between lunch and dinner, so that I don't eat so much for dinner.
Idk if I'll keep doing this, but maybe. At a certain point I knew I was going to post this, but it didn't really work in shaming me into eating any better. So we'll see.
