April 19th: One of These Days is Not Like the Others
Today was a little good, a little bad.
I got totally off-track but I figured out why.
If I don't take a lunch I'm happy about, I simply won't eat it. I didn't have a very good breakfast and I was very short on protein today.
I ended up eating way too much junk today and ended up with 2159 calories. Less than stellar.
My goal for tomorrow is to up the protein - A LOT!
I need to start off by having protein at breakfast - I am going to boil some eggs. I also need to plan my eats the day ahead so that I stay in my realm of calories. (I'm shooting for anywhere between 1200-1600 in a day.)
Today I had:
~ humongous muffin, glass of skim milk
~ yogurt (ff)
~ bean burrito and nacho chips
~ bag of microwave popcorn
~ mini bag of Crispers
~ baby carrots
~ leftover eggplant parmesan on whole wheat bread, a handful of chips
I'd really like some ice cream, but I'll do without it for this evening. Did I mention that my freezer holds a delectable creation called Drumstick Ice Cream. Little bits of chocolate dipped cone...vanilla.....oops....*shakes head to get rid of the image*
Tonight I'm going to boil a big pot of eggs for a quickie breakfast that I can eat at my desk, and I'm going to add more fruit to my days.
Here's to a learning experience and a successful tomorrow!
