This is my third and final installment of my food journal. Today my stomach continued to be off so I tried to be good to it.
Breakfast- 1) coffee w/ milk (1.5 cups) 2) 2 cups oatmeal with banana, blueberries, pasture butter, cinnamon, and turbinado sugar
Snack 1) Kombucha 2) Odwalla protein bar
Lunch 1) canned tuna with yellow mustard, parsley, salt, pepper, and cumin 2) green apple 3) water (1 pint)
Snack 1) Odwalla protein bar (2)
Dinner 1) skillet potatoes from the other night mixed with ground turkey on top of a corn tortilla with Greek yogurt and avocado 2) salad with mixed greens, onion, avocado, blue cheese and olive oil/apple cider vinaigrette 3) water (1 pint) 4) ice cream (1 cup)
Before bed 1) water (1 pint)
I felt much better about my food intake today. The protein bars are a new addition that I think I might keep. Why? They gave me an energy boost when I really needed it (late afternoon). My daughter just started crawling and she is getting into everything, you can’t leave her alone for more than 5 seconds so it makes it harder to rest. The protein bars really helped and kept the hunger down too throughout the day. As far as protein bars go they contain no GMOs which is great, the ingredient list isn’t horrible but it isn’t the best either though there is no refined sugar which is a huge plus for me.
I’m also excited to say that I have a new exercise routine written down that I started today. Can’t wait to see how exercise works in conjunction with my diet. I have been exercising before, mostly cardio, but this new plan gives me two days a week to focus on legs, arms, and abs on top of the cardio I am already doing. I am going to start slow, maybe 5-10 minutes a day, and then add to it as the weeks continue. I will record my progress.
