What I Ate Wednesday Edition #1

Welcome to my first edition of:

This weekly food diary is a way for me to look back at my healthy (or not so healthy) eats for the day. I also hope it inspires me and others to get out of a rut and make things a little fun. Wednesday's are always my run club night, so I've had to plan my meals accordingly. Hopefully, I can show you how to eat healthy even if you are pressed on time.

Today I was presented with the opportunity to sway away from my food plan. I woke up early, made my lunch and snacks for the day and then input my entire day of food into my tracker on my Anytime Health profile.

Side Note: I started at our local Anytime Fitness gym last year and do not use their website as much as a I should. It has a great food tracker that I'll be using for my Wednesday eats so you can see how my day stacks up.

Anyways, I tracked all of my food, got to work, went to eat my mid-day snack and realized I forgot my lunch. How many times have we all done that before? Luckily I had an apple in my desk so I didn't perish. Come lunch time I was ready to drive to Pizza Pizza, but I stayed strong and drove home to eat my homemade lunch there. My body does not function well when I don't have my morning snack with some protein. I can see why I was starving and was craving bad carbs.

This was my day:

Breakfast (7:30 am):
  • Whole wheat English muffin with no-salt margarine
  • 2 poached eggs - 1 whole and 1 egg white
  • Small coffee with a splash of skim milk and 1/2 tsp of sugar
  • Glass of water with liquid chlorophyll
  • Vitamins

Snack (10:00 am):
  • Apple

Lunch (12:00 pm):
  • Rosemary ham sandwich on multi grain rye bread, with arugula and dijon mustard
  • 3 strawberries
  • Oikos Greek yogurt

Snack (3:00 pm):
  • 8 ish dried apricots, small handful of unsalted walnut pieces
  • Banana

Pre-Workout Fuel (5:30 pm):
  • Cherry-Pomegranate Nutri-grain bar
  • 1 ounce low fat cheddar cheese

Dinner (8:30 pm):
  • Arugula, tomato saute; I cooked up some brown rice and then put it into my frying pan with a tsp of oil. I added grape tomatoes, arugula, lemon juice and some crushed red pepper flakes. I sauteed this for about 5 minutes. I then took it off the heat and added some light feta cheese and my 3-6-9 omega oil supplement. I do not calculate my omega oil supplements into my calorie total for the day as it is a vitamin replacement.
These are my nutritional details for the day:

Calories: 1734

Fat: 51.3 grams
Sodium: 1616 grams
Carbs: 259 grams
Fibre: 28 grams
Sugars: 84 grams
Protein: 72 grams

Calories burnt during run: 750

What does your day look like when you have a busy schedule? Do you stick to a plan or just wing it?

I hope you all had a great Wednesday!
