What did you eat today? (food log)

post #1 of 82
Thread Starter 
I just came from my usual round at fitday.com and thought i'd come straight over here and start a food thread for those interested in being accountable amongst their peers.

Post away!

I seem to be eating alot of ww carbs, but in my defense, i went strict paleo during the holidays and gained 7 pounds. (too many nuts/seeds i now presume)

Today:
--3 cups cheerios and 1 cup skim milk (the majority of my food intake seems to need to happen in the morning/early afternoon)
--1 small/medium canteloupe
--1/2 c. toasted almonds
--handful dried apricots

about 1,600 calories, which seems to be my norm these days. (i'm 5'6", and *supposed* to be 130lbs if you go according to pre-holidays. :b) it doesn't sound like alot, but i am WAY bloated, gassy and rather ill atm, so don't foresee needing much else today.

so far it feels good to be as conscious as i have been of what i eat--i see a much bigger difference already (in my spirits) this time around than last. i *will* feel good experiencing/living this pregnancy.

i'm giving myself permission to eat crappy until I get past the morning sickness stage but i'll post anyway and use this thread to help me set small goals for improvement.

i ate a can of green beans, a container of strawberries (about 2-3 cups?), half a peach, a jimmy dean sausage breakfast biscuit (my new favorite food), a cup of milk, bowl of captain crunch (ok, 2 bowls *bad*), and half of a small donut (~100 calories), water, crystal light and orange juice. i'm still hungry but everything sounds disgusting.

when i get to the second trimester my first goals will be to try to eat more whole grains and less sugar, and also to eat hard-boiled eggs as low calorie snacks at least a few days a week.

my only goal right now is to limit salt and to try to eat fruit with high water content when i'm not sure if i'm nauseous due to hunger or thirst. weird, i know.

lotusma - what you listed sounds like a lot less than 1600 calories. ?

i'm just coming out of the same boat, macy. i'm 12 weeks and food is *just* beginning to be less of nausea/gross factor. yesterday, however, (feeling ill) i had 4 chocolate chip cookies and a slice of pizza for dinner, in that order, lol, because nothing else sounded good.

i know, i thought so too, but not according to fitdays calculations. *shrug*

I didn't do as bad today as I have a lot of days... I am still at the point though where if I don't eat what sounds good then I don't eat!!

B- bowl of frosted shredded wheat with skim milk
L- pickles
S- marble slab ice cream
D- chicken drumstick, fajita rice, green beans and garlic toast

I REALLY need to eat more protein.. I should boil up a bunch of eggs and just keep them in the fridge. How long are eggs good for in the fridge anyway?
post #6 of 82
Hard-boiled eggs are good at least a week. I normally make a week's worth on Sunday nights.
post #7 of 82
Hard boiled eggs with the shell intact are good for quite a while in the fridge.

I had
B - a sausage, egg, and cheddar english muffin, medium latte, 1/2 whole wheat blueberry muffin
S - 2 clementine oranges
L - egg salad sandwich, clementine orange
S - ~0.5oz cranberry stilton
D - quick turkey "chili", artichoke with mayo, 2 slices toast with butter
S - glass of milk

And I discovered my food picky toddler loves clementines. Good thing since I have a whole crate of them.

today was a bad bad day for me. It was my grandma's 80th birthday party and it was basically eating from 2-7. So here it goes this is just what I can remember.

B: 1 scrambled egg, decaf coffee w/creamer, glass skim milk
L: salad, 2oz ham, 1oz corned beef, 4 cookies 1/2 slice of cake, lots of chex mix(a lot), carrots, grapes, augratin potatoes
S: 1 everything bagel with butter, and fat free vanilla greek yogurt
D: 2 slices of pizza, 1/3 apple

I feel like crap. tomorrow will be better and yesterday was better.

I've had an awful eating day. Sick in the morning. Sick at night.

B: 1/2 an English muffin with peach jam. 1.5 cups of Milk.
L: Cheese Pizza. Salad.
D: I ate 1/2 a waffle and some tortilla chips. Water. I stole one of DD's fish sticks. It made me ill. Zofran. I'm going to try and eat something here in a minute (it's 11:30. . . .).
post #10 of 82
B- slice of wheat toast w/ natural peanut butter

L - was feeling too sick to eat, got down 1/2 a turkey sandwich on wheat later on

D - dh grilled steak and shrimp - i made mushrooms to go on the steak, a yummy salad to put the shrimp on, homemade rolls & angel food cake cupcakes (filled with homemade custard & strawberries) - I ate a little bit of everything. Total splurge but YUMMY.

My Mom got ds some sour patch kids jelly beans. Ds and I LOVE those those things and I'll fully admit I popped quite a few jelly beans throughout the day/evening. Even when feeling sick - I could suck a few sour jelly beans down.

after dinner last night (egg sandwich with two eggs on one slice double fiber bread) i told myself no more snacking because i'd already eaten enough for one day but then i woke up dry heaving (gross, sorry!) from hunger and had to have a snack.

it is really impossible for me to make any attempt at normal eating right now. i know they say you don't really need to eat more in your first trimester than you did before you were pregnant but my body doesn't seem to be giving me a choice. it's very frustrating.

i should wait until april to participate in this thread and see if it goes better then.

I've had a brownie and 2 cups of coffee, ha.
post #13 of 82
I had 2 spoonfuls of cheerios and a quarter of a breakfast sandwich from the deli.

For dinner I'll probably finish that sandwich.

Food is not my friend lately. Yesterday my MIL took us out to dinner and I ate a full meal- then spent 2 hours in the bathroom laying in a cold sweat on the floor and getting sick (in both directions IYKWIM).

Today I've had 4oz yogurt, a banana, a handful of 'nilla wafers, three slices of cheddar cheese, and a bowl of rice crispies with honey and milk. And I'm STARVING. I've only been awake for four hours!

I tend to eat sort of crappy on the weekends! During the week I eat about 5 fruits, drink a ton of water and get lots of protein...the weekend though...well do swedish berries count as fruit?!?
Today:
Fibre one cereal with skim milk(What I eat 6 out of 7 mornings.)
Grilled cheese on cheese bread.
Sweet and Saltines which I foolishly made yesterday and am making DH bring to his work tomorrow so they are gone from my fridge! Seriously what was I thinking making toffee and chocolate covered saltines?!?

i stayed up much later than usual last night and began feeling famished at midnight, just as i was turning in. i was way too lazy/tired to make myself something to eat but i dearly paid for it this morning. i was so ill upon waking up and it's continued off and on all day.

today's been kinda crummy, but w/ being ill and then running errands all afternoon...

(we got the family bikes today. woohoo! bring on the exercise and free family entertainment!)

2 english muffins slathered w/ butter, w/ an egg (really, i just ate what the toddler didn't) (539 calories--wow! I knew butter was ridiculous, but....!)

1/2 a container of yogurt (62 calories)

a wendy's grilled chicken sandwich w/ veggie fixins', (403 calories) a few of dh's fries (453 calories) and some bites of the babe's ice cream. (149 calories)

grand total: 1605

i'll likely eat fruit or a smoothie later.

i do more poorly on the weekends, too, since i'm less focused and have many more random things going on.

toffee and chocolate covered saltines--YUM!

I love this thread - it makes me write down what I've eaten! I'm also one that eats better during the week vs. the weekend, and I really need to get back on track this week. No weight gain so far, but I don't feel very good.

Yesterday I ate -

B- homemade biscuit w/ a fried egg

L - Leftover 1/2 of a turkey sand on ww, baby carrots

S- angel food cake cupcake filled w/homemade custard & strawberries

D - grilled turkey sandwich on ww, apple & another cupcake (damnit cupcakes!!)

Today I ate a healthy, small breakfast & have packed a little healthy lunch with lots of fresh fruit/veggies for snacks. Also need to drink way more water.
