Hi everyone! Here is my food diary/full day of eating from yesterday. I like these because they give a complete picture to the whole day instead of one meal! I haven’t been able to work out at all this week because I hurt my foot and have to wear a special shoe 😦 I go back to the podiatrist next Monday and am hoping I will be back at it then! It has definitely been hard. I’ve had really bad body image all week and I think the fact that I can’t exercise is contributing to it. It’s been an interesting experiment though seeing how my body reacts to resting more! I’ve definitely been focusing a lot more on clean eating since I can’t work out at all.
Breakfast when I got to work (around 8am) was overnight oats (1/2 cup old fashioned oats +1/2 cup almond milk + cinnamon left in the fridge overnight). In the morning, I added 1/2 banana sliced and about 5 strawberries sliced. I also had a cup of hot water with lemon while I was getting ready for work, which was so nice. I always wanted to do that, but never actually have time!
I ate lunch around 1:30pm. I definitely was hungry earlier, but was stuck in a meeting. I had a salad with romaine lettuce, spinach, slice of oven roasted turkey breast, shredded carrots, 1/4 avocado, chow mein noodles and Bolthouse Farm balsamic vinaigrette dressing and an apple.
I had a snack around 3pm which was a Chobani yogurt and a cup of red grapes! I really like the Chobani Simply 100 yogurts, I love the flips too, but they have so much sugar.
I tried to make it until dinner without another snack, but it was 6pm and it didn’t seem like I was going to be able to leave work any time soon, so this white chocolate raspberry Quest bar came in to save the day! I’m a little eh about all of the ingredients in Quest bars, but they really do fill me up and keep me full for a while so they’re a good snack for me!
I ate dinner around 8:30 pm and made a baked sweet potato, roasted asparagus, and 2 chicken tenders (made the night before and heated up in the microwave) with a tablespoon of hummus on top. The chicken did not heat up very well, so the hummus was much needed! I was EXHAUSTED after I ate this–sat on the couch and watched the Girls season finale and then read a little and went to sleep around 10pm.
And that’s it! Pretty good day of eating, I didn’t get hungry at night or anything. Hope you guys enjoyed!
