My typical daily food plan

Okay, so here is what I typically eat in a day. It's definitely NOT the cleanest but it is better than what I was previously eating. This is what is helping me tone up but I'm not seeing the results I want yet so I have to cut out some more fruits, dairy, and breads/cereals. I usually eat a lot of the same things because it's easy to go grocery shopping and easy to prepare stuff. Once I get sick of these I will come up with other things to mix in my daily menu =)


Breakfast (before I leave for work)
1/3 (dry) quick oats
3/4 c. unsweetened almond milk
half a banana sliced on top (I keep the other half for my cereal at night)

I mix it with the following (not all at once lol):
  • raisins
  • unsweetened coconut
  • frozen blueberries and/or frozen raspberries/strawberries
  • walnuts
  • honey or maple syrup (sometimes I don't even add either of these in)
  • 1/4 of an apple chopped into small pieces
  • cinnamon
  • cocoa powder
  • so many options!!!

Snack
PC Blue Menu finesse yogurt cup
1 c. of grapes (green and red mixed)
a few Snack Factory thin pretzels and/or Pop chips


Lunch
some form of protein:

  • salmon/fish fillet
  • can of flavored tuna
  • chicken breast
  • hard boiled eggs
with veggies of some sort:
  • frozen veggies from Costco
  • if I use chicken breast for stir fry I use the stir fry frozen veggies from Costco
  • spinach salad: I either use the flavored tuna as the dressing or I use dressing if I'm eating it with hard boiled eggs
and an apple or some sort of fruit

Snack
1% cottage cheese
baby carrots
celery sticks
the rest of my thin pretzels/pop chips


Dinner
pretty much the same thing I have for lunch but in a different form than what I had for lunch
(lots of veggies!!!)


Snack
a bowl of cereal with the other half of my banana from the morning with unsweetened almond milk
(I like Multi Grain Cheerios, shredded wheat softened with boiling water, Rice Crispies. **Be careful of sodium in cereals: Some even have more salt than a small bag of chips**)



My cousin just finished university where she was took nutrition and she told me I need to eat more veggies. I'm having a really hard time with this =( I loooooove my fruit but the sugar is probably what is preventing me from seeing better results. I have 4 weeks until I'm in Jamaica and I want to be rocking my bikini! Let's see what I can do in these 4 weeks.

I definitely do cheat... like all the time. Chocolate is my weakness, but any sugar in general is. I love cakes, candies, chocolate, cookies, etc. So even though I eat  my healthy stuff listed here, there are usually a few things that slip in during the day. This is yet another thing that I have to work on. My will power is definitely lacking for this but I'm trying to work on it and maybe I'll start by limiting it to one 'treat' a day. Baby steps!

Have a good weekend!! What workout(s) are you doing this weekend?
