Sorry for the missed post yesterday. I ran around like a chicken with my head cut off for most of the day.
I did however remember to take pictures of everything that I ate. I have been struggling with staying in my 1200-1300 calorie range for the fitmixer boot camp so I sent out an SOS to the other participants to share what they eat for a day so I can get some ideas and encouragement. So if you are a fitmixer bootcamp participant you don’t need to read on as I am going to post this on our hub as well.
I start off every morning with the same three drinks. Coffee with cream, my aminos for my workout and then follow up with a protein shake.
I use the myfitnesspal app on my phone to track my calorie intake and keep in mind some of the food I post, like my supper may not be completely accurate but it should be fairly close. My morning cocktails usually equal to about 230 calories.
We are supposed to eat 5 to 6 small meals a day to keep our metabolism up. I work in an office and snack a lot out of boredom. I kind of graze all day. That may not be what I am supposed to do but I feel if I am grazing on good foods its all good right?
I had a teeny bit of almonds as a morning snack. I ended up having more later so I had an entire serving during the day which was 160 calories.
Then I had some of the overnight oats I made the night before in a old PB Wonderful jar. I didn’t eat all of it because I wasn’t hungry. I guessed the amount I had because I didn’t measure. :\ I figured I ate 205 calories worth. I included almond milk, Chobani non fat plain greek yogurt, steel cut oats and regular oatmeal, and then of course the peanut butter I left on the sides of the jar.
For lunch I had buffalo cauliflower bites. I found the recipe on Pinterest and make it all the time. When cauliflower goes on sale I buy several heads and make a bunch and then flash freeze them and put them in the freezer. Throw it frozen on a baking sheet for a while in the oven and they cook and crisp back up. I also used about 1 1/2 tablespoons of full fat ranch because with these I need the real stuff . I totaled lunch to be 262 calories.
For dinner we had a chicken alfredo lasagna that I made a long time ago and threw in the freezer. The cream sauce base was tofu though and not some creamy jarred stuff. I truly guessed on what was all in there and came up with dinner being 360 calories. I forgot to take a picture of the lasagna until it was all gone. I ate my steamed carrots too quickly too.
So I went over at 1365 but didn’t do too bad. I truly have been doing a great job this week but the weekends are what get me. I am going to take pictures through Sunday and hope the tedious task helps me stay on track.
Have a great weekend y’all.
