This morning I decided that trying to measure, count and weigh everything I’m eating is just too much for me in my current mental state so I’m posting what I ate, maybe with approximate amounts. I’ll be back to normal soon enough. Just trying to make this work without going crazy. Just like with working out, sometimes you have to modify. Doing something is better than doing nothing.

Breakfast – Chocolate Shakeology made with 8oz water, 4oz 1% organic milk, 2 ice cubes (let the kids pick the flavor and once again they went with plain chocolate)

AM Snack/Post-workout!! YAY!! – 1 scoop P90X Results and Recovery Drink

Really Late Lunch – some yakisoba noodles, maybe 2c, with about 10 broccoli florets, 10 or so slices zucchini, um…12? slivers of onion, 10ish teriyaki meatball quarters, and enough teriyaki sauce to make it taste good

PM Snack/Dinner I guess – 2 slices whole grain white bread, probably 6 extra thin slices turkey, 1 slice colby jack cheese, however much mustard my son put on for me, and somewhere between 1 and 2Tbs mayo (the good, full-fat kind…none of that fat-free crap that shouldn’t even be called mayo) and a dark chocolate cherry healthy granola bar that didn’t really taste that great.

Dessert – some of the brownies I made for my family (as if I was going to make brownies and not eat ANY…maybe on another day when my brain is functioning properly, but today) and I really do mean some, not everything I didn’t give them. There’s still around half left in the pan. That’s a 9×13 pan and a mini spatula, not some gigantic pan.

See? Also had THREE mini Peppermint Patties (not 6 or 9 or 12) and a cup of coffee made with Trader Joe’s Vanilla non-dairy creamer because I made it for my husband, but he went to sleep instead and I hate wasting things. Am I the only one who gets really thirsty after drinking coffee? Right now, at 8:51pm, I don’t think I could eat another bite, but I feel like I could drink a swimming pool…without chlorine. No, that would be gross either way. Forget the swimming pool. I’m just really, really thirsty.

Total calories – I dunno, Protein, Carbs, Fat, Fiber – also ??

Total calories burned as of 8:59pm – 2073 and will probably burn another 300ish just from being alive. I’ll update if it ends up being much different.

Today was a bit hectic with two basketball games close together in totally different parts of town. Breakfast was easy as usual, but late and consumed in under 5 minutes. Didn’t even think about a morning snack and scarfed lunch down in between games. Not exactly the ideal way to eat. When you eat fast and on the run it doesn’t seem to register like it does when you sit down and enjoy a meal.

Breakfast – Chocolate Shakeology with 1/2Tbs peanut butter, 1tsp sugar-free caramel syrup, 4oz 1% milk, water, ice

AM Snack – didn’t happen

Lunch – 2 slices Franz Whole Grain White bread, 6 slices extra thin turkey breast, 1tsp mustard, 4oz Yoplait Light Strawberry yogurt, 1 banana

PM Snack – P90X Chocolate Peanut Butter protein bar

Dinner – 4oz (weight when raw) chicken breast, 2c broccoli, 1/2c sliced mushrooms, 1Tbs light soy sauce, 2Tbs Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki sauce, 1tsp cornstarch, 1/4c water, dash ground ginger, sprinkle of black pepper, 1tsp chili garlic sauce, 1/2c cooked short grain rice (would’ve preferred brown rice, but my family’s not sold yet and we were out anyway)
