Sample Day

Recently a friend of mine posted a picture of herself looking stunning in a blue dress on her way to a wedding. She then, at our request, posted a sample menu of what she eats in a day and it was really great to see!  When I was using My Fitness Pal I could access my friend's food journals and see what they were eating and that helped to give me some good ideas and keep me accountable.  So I decided that I would share a typical day (with Weight Watchers points) with all of you.  If it helps you...great, if not...no biggie.

I get 26 WW points a day, but I'm still nursing so I get an extra 7 for a total of 33 and 49 flex points to use throughout the week, usually on wine, as I see fit.  Here is a typical 33 point day.

Breakfast

2 cups of coffee with two turbinado sugars and 3 tbs of half and half (I never skimp on coffee) - 5pts

Shakeology Shake (banana 0 points, 1/2 cup pineapple juice 2 pts) - 5 points total

1 cup of fresh blueberries - 0 points

Total breakfast points - 10 points

Mid Morning Snack

1 cup of watermelon - 0 points

Lunch

1 hard boiled egg - 2 pts
1/2 red pepper - 0 points
baby carrots - 0 points
string cheese - 2 pts
Quaker Rice Cake Caramel Corn - 1 point

Total lunch points - 5 points

Mid Afternoon Snack

Two bite mini cup cake vanilla - 3 points

Dinner

Mongolian Beef - 8 points
Brown rice 3/4 cups - 4 points
steamed asparagus 1/2 cup - 0 points

Total dinner points- 12 points

Dessert 

Tea with 2 sugars and a little bit of 1% milk - 1 point
Fiber One 90 calorie lemon bar -2 points

Activity

P90X3 Complex Upper - 2 activity points
P90X3 Ab Ripper - 1 activity point

It's not perfect.  I try to eat a lot of fruits and veggies, but I also struggle with a massive sweet tooth.  I try to get moving almost every day...usually 6 days a week.

I never skimp on coffee either ;) How do you like P90X3? I tried P90X last year and it was just too much for me. I'm doing T25 now and love it!

Coffee makes me human so I can't afford to skimp out on it. That's a nice balanced list of food there! I need to set a breakfast schedule because I slack on that since I never have the time in the AM. Gotta start preplanning that ish - I just get overwhelmed a lot of times and just lazy. Best of luck sticking to it!! Happy Friday Eve!-Iva

I think it's incredibly helpful (and motivating) to see what people are eating--not only does it give me ideas on ways to change up my diet, but it also helps me stay in line and keep to a healthier schedule. Thanks so much for sharing (and looks like you're getting a lot of fruits and veggies in--good on you!)

Thanks for leaving me such a sweet comment so I could come here and see your beautiful blog :) hope you had a lovely weekend!
