Food and Exercise Journal

Breakfast- 2 packs instant oatmeal
                 water (16.9 oz)

Snack- 1/4 cup mixed nuts
            1/4 cup dried fruit

Dinner- 1 cup roasted broccoli
            1 cup roasted yellow squash
            1 cup pinto beans
            1 small baked potato w/ butter and
            brown sugar
            water (16.9 oz)

Eating wasn't so good today, way to much sugar but with the day I've had I deserve it.  I know not an excuse to overeat on something but I'm forgiving myself for today.

I did exercise on our hike in the mountains, 1.8 miles/1 hour.

Now for my goals that I set for the week:

1. Water- 34 oz.
2. Sugar- to much
3. Fruit- 1 servings today
4. Vegetables- lots for dinner
5. Carbs- stayed within limits
6. Exercise- 1.8 mil/ 1 hour
7. Soda- none
8. Fast food- none


  1. Your day looks quite good actually and considering your looks fabulous and you hiked as well. Yeah Christina! Hope the bank thing gets settled soon.

  2. Thanks so much for the positive comments, I needed them.

  3. Are you following a specific plan, i.e. South Beach, Atkins?

    I'm noticing that you have no protein listed on here at all other than your mixed nuts. Do you find that you're hungry?

    I rec'd a nutrition plan as part of my boot camp. My instructor's a holistic nutritionist. I can give you some ideas if you'd like.

  4. I would love any suggestions you can give me but what you see listed today might not be a normal eating day, I just felt like all veggies for dinner. I'm really just trying to watch my sugar, carbs and sodium. Eat plenty of vegetables, limited fruits and drink only water and skim milk. I am always willing to learn any tips and suggestions that anyone can give me. I don't find that I'm hungry that often at all. I am losing weight but I also want to make sure that I'm eating healthy to not just losing weight. My eating plan has to be something that I can maintain for the rest of my life and right now I'm not really feeling deprived of anything so thats good.
