Shakeology; The Healthiest Meal of the Day

20 Jan



Food log recap 01.05.2012

6 Jan

In an attempt to make myself more accountable to you and also in an attempt to provide you some inspiration for food selection I will add food log recaps periodically.

I hope you find the content useful in applying to your everyday.

You will see that I am a Grazer, which is eating smaller more frequent meals through the day. I also aim to drink half my body weight in ounces of water daily.


Meal 1:

medium banana

black coffee

Meal 2:

1 cup Kashi Go Lean Crunch cereal

fat free milk

Meal 3:

2 servings of Veggie Straws (76 straws)

Meal 4:

4 oz baked chicken breast sprinkled with Mrs Dash seasoning

1 cup whole wheat Mac N Cheese (homemade)

1 cup green beans (unsalted)

Salad (lettuce, 1 1/2 tbsp light ranch dressing, 6 croutons, cucumbers, peanuts, shredded cheese)

Meal 5:

Chocolate Shakeology Shake (made with 8oz water and ice) added a  dollop of cool whip

In addition, I consumed a couple of adult beverages. I don’t mind 1 a day but I consumed 3 so that’s not ok.  Alcohol is full of empty calories and sugars too.

I found blogging this very helpful to me in identifying things that I need to eliminate. If I don’t want to tell you I ate it, I shouldnt eat it!

I am a huge believer of using rewards and inspiration pieces to help meet a goal. Just recently I was de-cluttering my closet when I stumbled on a pair of jeans that I received from my adorable, fit, tiny sister-in-law. I’ve always loved the look of the jeans but couldn’t even get them past my thighs. Something made me think that one day I will wear them so I hung them in the closet. Well 6 months later while I was de-cluttering they were thrown out of the closet and into a pile of “that’s not happening” items but they only stayed in that pile for a New York minute. Being the visual person that I am, I put those jeans right back in the closet. Now they have become my INSPIRATION PIECE.                                                                


I admit I may have overindulged a bit during these past summer months. Now its September and jean season and I’m pissed that I’m not wearing those jeans so the mission begins again. I am determined to wear those suckers by December 2011!!! O and since I’m also a rewards person, I’ll be sure to make my husband take me out where I can show them off!

What’s your inspiration piece? How are you going to make it happen? I’m here to help you stay motivated!
