Only a few more days left in the Fat-Free for Christmas challenge. We are so close!

This next assignment involves you telling me what you eat throughout the day. I need to know what you are putting in your mouth when you’re not doing my challenges. This assignment will be tedious but it will also be an eye-opener, giving you great insight into why you are not where you should or want to be.

Challenge #5:  Log 6 meals that you eat this week. Write down everything you consume during that meal, including beverages and desserts. Also, include details about size and calorie content, if you know it. All meals and snacks are eligible. Note: If you go back for seconds, you must log that additional serving.

If you are more digitally inclined, you can send me photos of what you’re eating. Send these to fitandhungry @ gmail. com. If all items don’t fit into one shot, take individual pics and label them, ex. lunch#1_1, Lunch#1_2.

If you are logging these by hand, you need to reply to this post with all of your meals. An example of a proper response would be: 12/22/11 breakfast: 1 whole scrambled egg, 1 piece wheat toast with 2tbsp peanut butter, 2 mocha latte. 12/22/11 dinner: huge bowl of pasta with tomato sauce, 2 glasses of wine, 3 bread rolls, 1 piece of chocolate cake

Alright, you best start now. I need your log of 6 meals by Sunday. You eat at least 4 meals a day so if you don’t accomplish this challenge, I know it’s because you’re ashamed.

Make me proud, people.

And for your listening pleasure, Show Me What You Got by Jay Z.

Meal #6 – Turkey sandwhich on 2 slices of whole grain bread with tomato, lettuce, pickles, peppers, onion, olives, mustard and 1 apple.

Thanks for this challenge – I’m keeping a notebook with me at work and at home and gonna try to keep writing down what I eat, because I automatically eat better when I do. Sticking with it is the hard part!

Meal #4 – Salad with lettuce, sweet pepper, 4 green oilves, balsalmic vinegar, 2 hard boiled eggs, 1 small slice cheese, green beans, 1/2 boiled plantain.
Meal #5 – 2 whole grain crackers (might be whole grain, but still totally processed and therefore junk), 2 egg omelette with 1 slice cheese, 1/2 sweet pepper, onion, 4 green olives, 1 cup black beans, 1 apple. As you can see I don’t have a lot of variety in my fridge……

Oh, and steak and potatoes on Christmas Day with corn again! Oklahoma favorites!

Jennifer · 12/27/2011 at 10:22 pm

Breakfast smoothies two mornings, both your recipes (cocoa banana with protein powder and green smoothie)

Turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and a cinnamon roll (felt horrible afterward butbitvtasted so good!)

Chicken, mashed potatoes, corn, salad and dinner roll

Meatloaf, potatoes (again!) corn and a green salad

I think it is time for me to admit I am a carb/starch-aholic! I have noticed how much better I feel when I cut down on carbs…just need to change behavior/habits and start cutting back.

Before lunch I ate an apple and 2 cups (popped) of popcorn that I made with olive oil. For lunch I had red snapper (fist-size serving) with green beans/squash/zuccini/onion steamed medley (probably 1.5 cups). Then I got weak and ate 3 marshmallows, each with a tiny (like 1/3 of a hershey’s miniature) piece of Colombian, unsweetened, chocolate inside. I told you I have weird food in my house. I def need more protein.

Ok…first things first. I failed on challenge #3. I just didn’t find the way to make time for it…my bad. Challenge #4 was waaayy to easy for me so, I just kind of let it be. As for this challenge here is what I eat when I know I am going to be placing big demands on my body like extensive runs or two a days. Meal #1 – a bowl of regular cheerios with skim milk (first thing after waking up). Meal #2 – protein shake (after working out). Meal #3 Spinach eggs (1 whole egg, 2 egg whites, 1/2 cup of spinach, 2 slices of fat free turkey breast, and 2 sticks of weight watchers mozerella cheese sticks). Meal #4 another shake. Meal #5 baked talapia and steamed broccolli. However, in the interest of full disclosure, on days when I don’t have high demands I ususally still have my cheerios and maybe 1 shake and then something like the baked talapia or chicken breast for dinner except I may have white rice (even though I prefer brown but if Tina cooks white I eat it) and between all that I have whatever I feel like snacking on…maybe steal a chicken nugget and some fries from my son, or eat Little Debbie oatmeal cream pies (from 1 to 5), or maybe some chips, ice cream and cookies, you name it! If its around here its subject to get snacked on…so there you have it… the good, the bad, and the ugly!

Oooh you are good. This is brilliant. I am already regretting the graham crackers I ate before running this morning, since I now need to write them down. I have a really weird mix of foods at home now because I’m about to go out of town. Breakfast: banana and graham crackers before 7 mile run. After run I ate a tamale (corn meal – don’t know the portion size but it was more than i needed, lean pork, 1/4 sweet pepper, 1/4 carrot), 1 cup black beans, 1 cup green beans, 1/2 tomato. I worked out three times yesterday, hard, and woke up HUNGRY. I couldn’t let the tamale go bad before leaving! I’ve got steamed veggies, fish, and hard boiled eggs lined up for the rest of the day – and knowing that I need to write stuff down will hopefully hold me to eating those. I’ll letchu know how it goes! Pics to come….

The one I’m eating right now (hanging head in shame)…it is a McDs cheeseburger and fries. But I did start the day with 28 grams of protein! Lol.
