My food journal! I get asked all the time what do I eat, and what can't I eat. I can and do eat pretty much everything because it's not a diet but a lifestyle choice. There are things I avoid because it's not worth it to me and I have a few remaining trigger foods. Sweets in general I do not keep in the house because chances are I will eat all of it happily and unemotionally and purely because I like them and will ignore my fullness cue. Without further ado below is last week. Thoughts, feelings, emotions lemme know...
food: grande coffee, oatmeal, tablespoon pb drizzle agave
feelings: thinking maybe to change my breakfast routine to start having it at home, have some still time in the morning and get out of my ruts.
feeling: super hungry but running into a meeting, this should take the edge of before lunch
food: miso soup, beef negimaki app, 1 brown rice oshinko roll, tea with 1 teaspoon honey
feeling: a little hungry afterwards, sitting with it, still hungry at 4:30, but going to see if I can hold out before snack time.
food: animal crackers, a little pb
feeling: having dinner with a helping of conversation I do not want to have and extremely hungry. Wondering if hunger is emotional
food: brussel sprouts salad, roasted chicken with smashed garlic potatoes, green beans, gelato for dessert
feeling: what a dinner, went better then expected as in I didn’t have to be very honest because this was a narcissitic meal, wanted a glass of wine real bad but was with a recovering alcoholic and I feel funny about it. Definitely ate some feelings, just focused on my food....
food: 2 small coffees, small with ff coffeemate, oatmeal, 1 tb pb, drizzle agave, clementine
feelings: feeling okay a bit better with dinner of doom over, not happy my cable is out but the irony of cable being out when I am trying to be more alone is not lost on me
food: chicken, lime, orzo soup medium, 1/2 tuna sandwich from hale and hearty
feeling: should have eaten a half hour before I did but got control of the hunger via tea and water
feelings: having a stressful week but managing, deep breathing is helping, and I have yoga tonight to look forward to, also no tv=bed earlier
food: clementine, animal crackers,
feelings: not rocking the snack at all this week. I need to work on this. I get hungry I know this, and the snack options are limited so it needs to be dealt with.
food: brown rice, asian veggie mix, 1 cup of each, and black bean veggie burger, drizzle ginger, chili, sauce that has 15 calories per tb which is cool and tasty, coconut water
feeling: super late dinner, post work out and yoga wasn’t ideal but just tough to fit it all in, I didn’t want to eat dinner before because I knew I was going to work out, and when I finished working out it was 10 of 8 and yoga’s at 8pm, blah blah, yoga was great and Melissa kicked my bum. Really like it. So challenging and humbling but I am committed. I sort of freaked at first eating silent dinner. I wanted to text someone, get on my ipad something anything or race through my meal, but then I just chilled. I took my time, really chewed and tasted my food. It ended up being kind of cool. I delayed my cable repair to go to yoga and because I thought I need a few days of quiet.
food: spinach feta wrap from starbucks, grande coffee with skim, clementine later
feeling: worn out from the week, but feeling good, slept like a wee babe post yoga last night.
food: chicken, lime, orzo soup medium, 1/2 tuna sandwich from hale and hearty, kinder hippo,
feeling: wasn’t hungry and then got SUPER hungry, have to say the hippo is 96 calories, and 6 grams of fat and worth it
feeling: hungry and want a heartier snack but have spinning at 7pm and will feel gross if I eat anything heavier, was supposed to have Indian food with my bro but we snow delayed, glad I am not eating Indian food for dinner.
food: lemon rosemary chicken breast, sauteed kale, brown rice, coconut water, wanted dark chocolate but checkity checked myself reminding myself I had the hippo earlier today
feeling: good another silent dinner, did better with the silence, it’s still a little weird feeling, but not unpleasant. Just weird.
food: strawberry pancakes from energy kitchen, 1 large coffee with skim and splenda
feeling: well this morning did not start well, business partner collapsed last night and had to be hospitalized
food: 2 slices pizza with mushrooms and black olives, salad with drizzle of dressing, tried to do 1.5 slices but was hungry still
feeling: had zero appetite and then started getting hungry and then got walloped. Was trying to respect my hunger cues and feel like I got spanked by them. No es bueno.
food: chicken breast with lemon, and rosemary, sauteed kale, brown rice, coconut water
feeling: was so tired didn’t want to work out but knew it would make me feel better, 45 mins later feeling like a much improved version of myself.
food: spinach feta wrap from starbucks, grande coffee with skim
feeling: pretty well rested, really excited to work out with Egon today, I dare say I feel pumped.
food: food should taste good multigrain chips, salsa, pita with hummus, goat cheese, kalamata olives toasted, coconut water, chocolate chips,
feeling: really good, great session with Egon, a killer work out, already feel soreness setting in which is both a good and terrifying sign
food: chicken breast stuffed with wild rice, soy cheese, and mushrooms, lentil salad with arugula, and roasted leeks, balsamic, steamed broccoli, 1 1/4 cup cider with rum, a few reduced fat tortilla chips with salsa verde, and a few carrot sticks with white bean hummus for appetizer,

feeling: a little nommy today, I was not very hungry and then got really hungry and then wanted to eat instead of working out, made myself get on to the treadmill for a hour
food: steamed collard greens, steamed bok choy, very small spoonful of potato salad from whole foods, and rice salad made with wild rice, cranberries, chicken and cranberries, wanted to taste it but not make a meal of it at all. Less then 2 tablespoons of each, 4 turkey meatballs with mustard,
