alright ladies let's hear your meals


Breakfast: split pea soup- we literally have no food in this place, it's all packed away

Lunch: egg sandwich

snack: grapes and babybel light cheese round

Dinner: hamburger helper meal and bagged frozen veggies

Uh-Oh: well I did okay points wise (weight watchers) until my migraine came and then I dipped into monster cookie ice cream and then a coke (usually helps my headaches)

reflection on the day: I could definately have made better choices, all of my meals were heavy and I feel that way. I didn't even enjoy the ice cream, but it's a habit when I don't feel good.

exercise today: just packing and cleaning out closet

Not to be mean, but pea soup sounds disgusting!

All right, I was bad today. I REALLY need to get on the eating healthy wagon, but it's been hard to find the motivation. I have no problem exercising, because I LOVE exercising, but eating healthy is soooo hard for me. (And having AF arrive certainly doesn't help the junk food cravings. )


Breakfast: A bowl of Life cereal with fat-free milk, and 8 oz. Faygo cola (I needed my caffeine kick, and didn't feel like making coffee, lol)
Lunch: Baked Cheetos (probably about 2 servings), and 2 s'mores (half a Hershey's chocolate bar, 2 graham crackers, and 2 large marshmallows)
Dinner: Mac n cheese and a can of Mt. Dew
Snacks: Piece of chocolate ice cream cake
Water: I don't know for sure, but at least 40 oz. (that's actually low for my typical day)
Exercise: Stretched; went for a 30-minute brisk walk with Caleb (I didn't wear him; I took his stroller so that I could walk faster), 20 push-ups, and about 15-20 minutes of ab-crunching dancing.
Reflection: Now that I've typed it out, I guess I didn't do THAT bad. If I knocked out the soda, then I'd say that it was an okay day. I could have made better choices, but I didn't consume a crazy amount of calories, so I'm happy. Oh! And I'm starting to take my prenatals again. I haven't taken any vitamins since pregnancy.

Breakfast #1: Small Blueberry muffin (bad..white sugar..but my sugars were really low I needed a quick fix).
Breakfast #2 (b/c I'm a boob and ate white sugar, my blood sugar was all jacked up and I needed to eat again an hour later): Egg-beaters and a bannana
Lunch: piece of left-over lasagna and one piece of Dove chocolate
Dinner: Grilled chicken salad and vingerette dressing
Snacks: Handful of chips, Handful of gold-fish, and a protein bar, and a glass of red wine
Water: maybe 4 bottles? Not good.
Exercise: One hour walk with Aly in the stroller.
Reflection: I feel so overwhelmed and anxious..how am I going to do this when I go back in two weeks? Esp. the exercising..I do not want to exercise when I get home from work when I only get maybe 4 hours to see Alyssa before she and I both need to go to bed.

I'm seriously debating getting some lipo.

Breakfast: Strawberry yogurt, would have eaten more but was in a rush
Lunch: Turkey sandwich on whole wheat that I made at home with tomatoes, lettuce, and a tiny amount of swiss cheese, plus a glass of skim milk
Dinner: I'm about to eat some brown rice, a burger (made it out of lean ground beef), and I might put a little cheese on the burger. Plus, a salad on the side.
Snacks: I had some raspberries and a few of Lily's cheerios
Water: I've drank over 100oz today
Exercise: I did 30 Day Shred on Level 2 (30 minutes)
Reflection: Pretty good day, my eating habits are pretty normal for me. I really didn't want to work out today but I forced myself to do it and felt a lot better afterwards

Reflection: Since last Thursday I have been keeping track of what I eat everyday and trying to make better choices by counting calories. Today I had approximately 1100 calories so I consider that a good day!! I really should drink more water but I'm just not a big drinker! I also should do some form of exercise everyday......

I LOVE this cereal!!!!!!

I can't speak for others, but I know I would probably use that the most. it keeps me honest and I realize how much food i'm actually eating.
