What did you eat today? Accountability thread

No good just exercising, we need to eat healthy too. I haven't particularly counted my calories yet, but am aiming for a 2000 daily calorie intake. I may have gone overboard today. What is everyone eating per day? I think it will be interested to see what everyone eats daily every now and then. A bit ashamed to say, but here's what I had today: 3 oatmeal cookie pancakes, 2 granny smith apples (one with caramel and chocolate), 3 cups of green tea, 8 glasses of water, tuna sandwich on whole wheat bread, green salad with cherry tomatoes, Mexican lasagna, 3 chicken wings with sweet and tangy sauce, 2 cantaloupe slices

Dina, good for you trying to keep under 2000 calories! I had 4 cups of coffee, an egg white omelette with tomatoes, mushrooms, and cheddar cheese with a bite of pancake and a couple pieces of hashbrowns, one bottled water, a small glass of francis coppola merlot, pork chop, rice pilaf, apple sauce, a glass of milk, a mrs. fields milk chocolate chip cookie and now....what else, a glass of whisky - I think I am over my 2,000 calories, boo - tomorrow is another day.

Cool idea Dina. I am not particularly counting calories or anything, but I like to see what I did in a day.

Coffee (2 or 3, can't remember)
Sweet and Salty Peanut Granola bar
1/2 bowl of chicken noodle soup (girls left some)
couple handfuls of pretzels
two slices of smoked chicken breast
prime rib (say...6 oz? maybe 8?)
oven roasted potatoes (about one whole one)
corn (1/3 cup)
pile of salad with red pepper and parmesan dressing
slice of ice cream cake
glass of Coke
more water than I could figure out.

Hey...first day with no tea! Weird. I totally missed it.

i had leftover kung pao chicken at 3am.

went home and slept about 5 hours.

then had some pineapple and carrot slices while i fed the birds at 3pm.

costco trail mix around 5pm. then a handful or 2 of cheez-its.

broiled fajita marinated skinless chicken thighs and legs with cheddar, garlic, and herb mashed potatoes around 7pm. oh, and watermelon for dessert.

and now it's past midnight, and i'm off to get sushi/sashimi and a hot sake or three.

I had a bowl of Vanilla Almond Special K
Starwberry Banana Yogurt
A chicken salad sandwich
a 20 ounce bottle of diet pepsi


And that's it today.

Eat more!

I had:

Homemade dried fruit protein bar, protein shake (milk + whey + natural peanut butter), 2 whole wheat sandwiches of teriyaki chicken breast sliced up with tomatoes, 1 banana, 1.5 cups of Danone Silhouette yogurt, 1 apple, 2 whole wheat fajitas with steak+peppers+onion+low fat cheese+tomato, 2 white chocolate apricot cookies, and a whole chocolate mint bar because I wanted a piece but it was all busted up, so had to be eaten! (but it was organic, so that makes it alright! )

Probably about 2400 - 2600'ish calories

But considering I exercised off over 1000 cals, I'm actually low for today - I usually aim for about 2300 or so

Nah! Forget it! Who's counting calories anyway. I'll give up on that. I forgot to mention my 2 cups of coffee I had yesterday and about 1/2 cup of Virginia hand cooked peanuts...13 grams of fat per serving. Wow!

and 9 calories per gram of fat

but the fats in peanuts are good for you (omega-6, I believe), so it's great in moderation!

today was WORSE than yesterday, by a long shot

2 bananas, 2 apples, oatmeal, flax seeds, whey, pizza (3, maybe 4 slices - woops!), 2 Clif bars, something else bad for me (I think) - going to make a chicken breast wrap for dinner and that should be it, I think
