View Full Version : On Target

My friend Matt and I will be posting our food logs here to keep each other in check while we are not living in the same town. I hope that between wanting not to be the one who cheats first and having to write down everyday what I eat, I will keep my sweet/salty/cheat-y tooth in check.
A little background info: been CrossFitting for 19 months. Weighed 245lbs when I began. Mostly did the Zone diet and CrossFitted 4-5 days a week and got down to 189. However in the past few months my diet has seriously slipped (still work out 4-5 days a week) and my weight has gotten back up to 202. At present I am not planning to Zone hardcore (even though its principles are pretty deeply embedded in me), not going all-out Paleo (yet) and would like to work in IF eventually. However, for right now, I want to go back to the basics of when I started my journey and just focus daily on making good food choices. With that said:
0800 2 eggs scrambled with milk; 1 small gala apple
1000 17 slices turkey pepperoni, 1 kiwi, handful of almonds
1300 - ~ 3 oz canned tuna, veggie medley of 2 plum tomatoes, 1/3 large English cucumber, and about Ό red onion tossed with EVOO and balsamic vinaigrette
1545 - ~2 oz canned tuna, handful of almonds
2015 5oz ribeye, ~ 1.5 cup green beans, 1 small sweet potato, 1/3 pomegranate, and 3 spoonfuls of almond butter

1030 - two snack size zone bars, bought then by accident, I knew 8 bars for 4 bucks had to be too good to be true!
1330 - 1.5C homemade chili, 1C unsweetened applesauce, 3 spoonfuls of almond butter
2045 - 1/2c sliced watermelon, salad with mixed greens, mushrooms, onion, peas, cucumber, cranberries, pumpkin and sesame seeds with raspberry vinaigrette
Over the weekend I tried to make the paleo pancakes and failed miserably. I also tried to make the coconut milk ice cream with eerily fresh strawberries for this time of year, and I think all I could taste was fat the entire time. I probably just couldn't get past the lack of even fake sugar in an "ice cream".

Yesterday - as I work in politics, election day is more of a holiday for me than most other days. Food consumption was not on game (beer, pizza, champagne, cake, etc). Had every intention of staying home and eating a healthful meal, buuuuuut, it obviously didn't happen that way. Have to say, ever since I started this log, it's pretty incredibly how many invitations to go out to eat/drink I have turned down and it's only been 10 days.
Today - Stomach kind of sour from what I'm assuming is a sinus infection but I haven't been to the doctor yet. Not much of an appetite.
Snacked on the following between 1330 and 1430:
3 oz tuna
1/3 english cucumber
2 snack size zone bars
No Dinner tonight.
Plan to get back to regular eating habits tomorrow.
