My diet is erratic…so here are the parts that typical/normal…I’ll make comments as I go…
(oh…and I don’t, nor have EVER really drank soda)
Breakfast: (This is one thing I need to correct…I know this, but here is what’s typical)
8oz OJ + GreensPlus + Protein powder
yes that is IT!! yikes! but still better than my previous breakfast of “none” til I got to work.
Once I get to work at 7:30am the snacking begins…
Usually 1/4cu of western trail mix (nuts with m&m’s mixed in)
Once those are gone…
1/4cu of Almonds/Walnuts
these things usually last me til 9 or 10am, depends how busy I am at work.
Sometimes during 8am to 10am, I go with co-workers and I get a Jamba Juice as well.
Around 11am I either have my lunch (usually a PBJ sandwich) or a piece of fruit.
If I didn’t have the sandwich at 11am… I eat it during “lunch” which is usually 12 to 1.
Then either WITH lunch, or just a bit afterwards I have another piece of fruit.
Then SOMETIMES, I’ll go with co-workers when they go to the student center (I work at a University) to get food and I’ll get either Subway, or some Chinese food (Panda Express)
Then around 3pm I sometimes have my last piece of fruit…or just skip it.
I get home 5pm-ish and this is where it gets really erratic.
I usually EAT right away (hoping that will allow me to eat again later)…
but “dinner” can be anything from another sandwich, to soup, or a Kashi frozen dinner to an Amy’s Pizza…like I said…no structure.
After eating I take the dog out to play, come home and head to the gym.
After the workout I down a recovery drink:
8 oz 2% Milk
Protein powder (Vanilla)
“glob” of Peanut butter
Then usually I snack on “something” an hour or so later.
Throughout the day I drink water, but need to drink more.
I also drink different teas during the day…
I’m a tea drinker, so that’s easy for me.
My goals regarding my diet:
Eat MORE (proving to be harder than I thought…but I’m working on it) and try to make the “more” the RIGHT foods.
Get a good start on eating MORE by having a good full breakfast! which is hard since I usually go to bed way too late, so I get up late, and rush out the door for work.
Eating throughout the day is good, but I’d like to be a BIT more structured about it…say…every 2 hours (which is LESS frequent than I eat now)…but eat more at those intervals.
sorry for the long-ish post…but I DO appreciate the help!
