Food Journals for a few days…and some Exercise!

December 20, 2008

Okay, I am having a hard time with internet access here in Denver but I’m doing a good job with my eating & food journal, and today I even went to the gym and did 50 minutes on the elliptical.

I’m also doing great with leaving something left over at each meal! So glad I started this before coming, because US portions are HUGE.

Breakfast (airport lounge) :

  • Tea
  • Hot chocolate
  • 1 roll

Lunch (on plane) :

  • Cashews
  • Salad
  • Pasta w cheese eggplant
  • Fruit
  • 1 chocolate
  • 2 tangerines

Thursday, December 18th

Breakfast :

  • Apple (fuji, locally grown and organic – fabulous)

Lunch : (Vietnamese restaurant)

  • 3 halves of fried spring rolls wrapped in lettuce etc (delicous beyond belief)

Dinner : (Restaurant)

  • Fajitas (only one tortilla, no beans, 1 tsp of guac & of sour cream, 1 tablespoon shredded cheese
  • 1/2 strawberry-rhubarb cobbler, which I totally didn’t need but my mom insisted on ordering it. I didn’t eat the crust and only took 2 bites of the ice cream)

Fruit & veg count : 6

Friday, December 19th

Exercise : gym, 50 minutes elliptical

Breakfast :

  • Tea w milk
  • Plain yogurt (less good than we have in France)
  • 1 apple, 1/2 clementine
  • very small bowl of Kashi Heart to Heart w milk, just because I miss it, not because I was still hungry

Lunch (restaurant) :

  • Chicken, artichoke & goat cheese salad

Snack (at Dad’s) :

  • Brazil nuts (about 8 )

Dinner (Mexican restaurant – DANGER!) :

  • Good control w chips and salsa, ate about 6 chips
  • 1 cheese enchilada – left 2 bites
  • 1 small chicken burrito – left several bites
  • did not eat the beans & rice
  • Enjoyed it all, but stayed in control, yeah me!
  • Snowcaps at movies, very unnecessary, and not very good chocolate. Ate about 1/3 box, should have had gum and water…

Fruit & veg count : 6 if I’m generous
