I said in my last How the Jeans Fit Friday, that I was doing some research on some blogs and link ups that I could follow that have to do with health and fitness, because well, that is a huge part of my journey and I need to find some friends out there in the blog world that are struggling through it as well or who are nailing it and I can get some advice!
Today I am showing you what I ate yesterday. My day started great and sort of went downhill at dinner, but I am keepin it real over here....
I started the day with a yummy breakfast! Usually I throw peanut butter on a wheat English muffin and call it good, but I felt that was boring so I wanted to make it more interesting for my picture and what I created was delicious! I topped a wheat English with some natural peanut butter, half of a banana and a little bit of honey. Oh boy was it good! So good, I just had it again this morning!
For snack I had a string cheese, which I didn't think to take a picture of.
For lunch, I made a turkey sandwich on oatmeal bread. Turkey, Dijon mustard and lettuce. On the side I had bell pepper strips and a light Italian dressing to dip. It was very good and very filling!
I cleaned my room yesterday and when I say clean I mean, I took everything out of my room except for the furniture. I went through everything and put only what needed to be in the bedroom, back in. This is a post for a different day, but I was super busy all day as you can imagine. Then I had book club last night, so I needed to shower and get ready. My plan for dinner was egg sandwiches which Mike was supposed to make before I left, but he got caught up in work. So 15 minutes before I left, I stuck leftover macaroni and cheese from the kids lunch into the microwave and ate that for my dinner...
Then I brought this to book club...
I didn't eat any of it at book club, but I had a brownie and a cookie when I got home with the leftovers. At book club I stuck with the veggies and dip, but did have a few chips with pickle dip, and a few pita chips with a strawberry dip.
This project of documenting what I eat, is an eye opener. This is going to be something that I do regularly as I continue with my journey. As I write this, I am thinking, wow right there is part of the reason I struggle with my weight. At the end of the day, while I was hungry and in a rush, I did not make the best choice.
So my question today is what do you keep on hand to eat in a rush for a meal?
