Good morning to you all! How are we on this 2nd day of November (ßMEEP!)? Can I tell you how very happy I am that we are supposed to drop below 60 during the day tomorrow? Yes I’m the weirdo that wants cold weather in Cali I’m just over all my summer clothes and need a change.
Today it’s all about What I ate Wednesday (WIAW)!
This time around, I’m posting every single thing I ate. Tuesday Oh yes, you read that right. I’m telling you down to the cream in my coffee and any stolen treats.
720: PB coffee with regular decaf and 1+ tbsp FF vanilla creamer – 40 cals, 0g protein
845: 1 packet Quaker oats raisin and spice flavor + ¼ cup TJ’s plain oats – 220 cals, 6g protein
1140: Leftover BBQ rice mix, with roasted peppers / onions and 2 cut up smart dogs – 350 cals, 16g protein. I don’t usually buy these rice mixes because they are so high in sodium, but I love me some BBQ and couldn’t resist. Verdict? Meh.
145: Stawberry Chobani – 140 cals, 14g protein
320: 1 medium Ambrosia apple – 95 cals
400: ~10 TJ’s cinn-almonds and ~10 candy corns – 220 cals, 3g protein
640: 1 bowl turkey burger chili and 1 bag of plain Popchips for dipping – 450 cals, 10g protein
8p: hot cocoa with mini marshmallows – 200 cals, 1g protein
Total Cals = 1715
Total Protein = 50 g
Yikes! Still way below what I need as a preggers girl, but I honestly don’t know how to squish anymore in my daily ‘diet’. Help!
Fitness: 30 minute walk with the beast (Naava) and 30 minutes light weights
It’s always interesting to me when I really examine everything I’ve eaten. It’s obvious that I eat majority of my calories after noon. I’ve tried to front load more, but then I still end up eating just as much in the evening. Pregnancy seems to make it worse too – especially with the sweets. I now need a dessert every single night. And then sometimes the floodgates open, the fat kid takes over, and nothing in the pantry is safe. Last night I did good
Also of note, I’m doing pretty good with the higher cal intake. Pre-pregnancy, I’d eat about 1300-1400 calories a day max. If I had a particularly strenuous workout, I may up that to 1500-1600. Yesterday I ate about 1700 cal, I’m right on target for my +1 in my belly
How often, if ever, do your record everything you eat?
How else can I get more protein without packing in a ton more calories?
