Helllllllloooo everyone! 🙂
How’s your Thursday going? Mine’s pretty good… VERY TIRING but good. I finally have time to relax now (relax =blog, woo!)… Anywhooo I’d like to give you a full play-by-play of my Tuesday.. yeah, I’m aware that was 2 days ago, but now I finally have time to go over it… get it?
For Nutrition class, Our assignment is to write down everything we eat for 3 days, and then enter it into this computer program:
And through this, we have to analyze our diets and see what we need to change! Personally, I’m not a huge fan of writing everything I eat down and then analyzing it. Mostly because I’m the type of person who will mindlessly go on Snacking Adventures, which quite frankly, I don’t feel like writing down. But for the purpose of this class- I’ll deal with it. (and measure everything, ugh.) I also didn’t like entering everything into the program, seeing how many Cals, etc. I ate- I rather just eat it, enjoy it, and be done with it. I felt like it got me thinking too much about what I was eating, I guess. Does anyone else feel this way? Or do you like knowing how much your eating/ portioning things out and knowing your calorie intake? Either way is fine: To each his own; it’s just important not to get too obsessed with the intakes, etc. I know I’ll learn a lot by doing this, and that even though I don’t THINK I need to change anything, I’m sure I could IMPROVE in some areas.
So without further adieu, here’s the my schedule, food(taken by my phone; sorry, folks!) & some of my unnecessary comments 🙂 >>>>>>>
7:30 Wake Up… woo! school!
I’m a pretty slow getting ready-er, so I made myself some Oat bran to enjoy during class:
1/2 Cup Oat Bran
Oat bran- To- Go
1 Cup Milk
1 Cup Water
1 Tbsp. Each Wheatgerm & Flaxseed
2 TBSP Peanut Butter
8:30- 9:55– Enjoy my Oat bran while I don’t enjoy Psych Stats class 🙂
10:00-2:00 (Yes, 4 Hours, no exaggeration) TRACK PRACTICE! (see, this is why I can’t post all the time! hehe)
This consists of:
-25 Minutes of Jogging+Warm-up Drills (did them super fast)
-1 1/2 hours of bounding, bungee work (so fun! and felt good!), “hump jumps”, and other jumping drills
-120m sprints, 2×80 meter sprints (3 minute rest between each)
-45 minutes of weight room
-15 minutes abs
-15 minutes stretching
+Ice Bath (woooo!)
(all the time is estimated, ish, it all adds up to 4 hours somehow, but *** I am not WORKING OUT for 4 full hours, a lot of it is taking breaks in between jumps, changing, resting, icebathing, etc.***)
In between Practice and Weight Room I had an apple, and during practice/lifting/after I had a Clif Bar:
Banana Nut Bread Clif Bar: You never let me down 🙂
2:30 Then I trekked back up to my room and enjoyed a whole wheat sub with some grilled chicken, eggplant, and spinach:
Pre- Microwave Nukage
3:00 I hopped in the shower, and got hungry…again (love the afterburnnnn)
3:10– Enjoyed this snackypoo:
I love that my Kashi Heart to Heart is in a heart shaped measuring cup 🙂
Clearly I got hungry and was eating out of the measuring cup and then realized that I needed to take a picture^^
3:30-4- I blow dryed my hair, talked to my friend who broke his leg at one of the last track meets pole vaulting :(… He showed me the bruising and the swelling, I feel so bad :/…It’s crazy what you can do to your body falling from 16 feet above the ground!
4-4:30- Straightened my hair, put on my makeup, got dressed, and ate a grapefruit:
Excuse the awful Cellular Pic, this looks terrible, but it was actually quite delicious 🙂
At 5:30 I ran, literally to catch the bus to get to my next class downtown. Legit, the bus was leaving and I ran in front of it to stop it… awesome, right?! Ha!
I had class downtown from 5:50- 8:50– Introduction to Human Development, we talked about Breastfeeding for 3 hours… kill me now. Luckily, I brought food to keep me occupied:
Some delish Decaf Green Tea:
Along with an unpictured Oats N’ Honey Nature Valley Bar
9:13 – Caught the bus back to campus, and walked up to my room in the snow and arrived at 9:30
9:45 Clearly hungry, I enjoyed some Plain Oikos with protein cookie dough 🙂
Why are you so freakin' delicious?!
&Throughout the Day, I drank 142 oz. of water.
Okay, now here comes the Self-Analysis thanks to the lovely computer program:
(IF YOU CARE, The first # is what I consumed, the second # is the amount I’m “supposed to consume” **Doesn’t take into account activity level, So Mine is skewed**, and the third is the percentage of what I took in compared to how much I was “supposed to” consume:
Calories 3,096.95 2,546.68 122 %
Calories from Fat 639.34 713.07 90 %
Calories from SatFat 112.26 229.20 49 %
Protein (g) 161.35 50.80 318 %
Carbohydrates (g) 527.33 350.17 151 %
Sugar (g) 183.42
Dietary Fiber (g) 80.82 35.65 227 %
Soluble Fiber (g) 19.70
InSoluble Fiber (g) 26.54
Fat (g) 71.04 79.23 90 %
Saturated Fat (g) 12.47 25.47 49 %
Trans Fat (g) 0.00
Mono Fat (g) 8.31 28.30 29 %
Poly Fat (g) 12.07 25.47 47 %
Cholesterol (mg) 123.90 300.00 41 %
HERE ARE MY COMMENTS:
1. It’s annoying because since my activity level isn’t taken into account, everything isn’t as accurate as I would like it to be (being that I am putting effort into this)- I added the activity level somewhere else and it said I was eating the right amount of calories, so that made me happier haha
2. I didn’t eat NEARLY as much this day as I do normal days- 3,000 Cals. is a decent amount of food, I probably take in 3,500/day… danggggggg (see, but I’m thinking about it… I don’t WANT to think about it! haha)
3. I didn’t include the vitamins&minerals on here, but they were all well over 100%, so woo! go me! (right?)
4. I’d rather snack and not measure, it takes the fun out of digging my hands into a a box of cereal
5. To be rebellious, I snacked on prunes somewhere in here, but didn’t write it down (but then I eventually added it to the program, so they’re on here, anyway! haha)
6. This was really not so bad, I’m just being dramatic, sorry for the complaining!
So the goal is to improve, but I’m not sure exactly on WHAT I need to improve on, yuzzherd?! So if anyone has any suggestions to help me out and let me know what I can do to improve, I’m ALL EARS! Really!
Have a wonderful rest of your day, everyone! I’m off to take my laundry out of the dryer (then fold it), THEN read blogs!!!! yay! I’m exciting to see what everyone’s eats look like!
