My Beachbody coach challenged our accountability group to take pictures of everything we ate on Monday (let me know if you’d like to join our accountability group). I thought this would be a smashing idea for a blog post (my poor neglected blog). So here goes!
For breakfast, I whipped up some black coffee (pumpkin spice!) with some non-fat milk.
I made an omelet with a cup of liquid egg whites, mushrooms and salsa verde (my omelet-flipping skills need work). I also ate half a cup of plain oatmeal. Sometimes I add frozen berries or pumpkin pie spice to my oatmeal, but I like it just fine plain, too.
For lunch I had vegan Tropical Strawberry Shakeology. My glass doesn’t look like the one on the package because I added a cup of spinach and two giant frozen strawberries.
This was my afternoon snack: a very sad banana and a piece of Babybel cheese.
When I got home from the gym, I had a protein shake. I added spinach and frozen strawberries to this, too.
For dinner, I had veggies, hummus, and cottage cheese. I love me some Trader Joe’s cottage cheese.
Before bed, I had a casein shake. You guessed it – I added frozen strawberries to this, too. Of all the protein shakes I drink, casein is definitely the one that needs stuff to be added to it.
Here are my totals for the day:
Four months of hotel buffets and I need to start counting calories again, so I logged into my Fitbit account. I like the Fitbit food tracker because it works backwards – you determine how much of a deficit you want, and then you eat according to that. This works great for me since I do a lot of exercise – I can add in more food for days when I’m famished. Today I came in way under budget (I’m trying for a deficit of 750 calories each day), but I felt pretty satisfied.
What’s for breakfast?
