Today (as mentioned on Saturday's post) I set out to document my food intake with pictures. This sounded like a good idea a few days ago, but after today, I have a new-found respect for all who post their daily meals.
Since I work at a school, my lunch is provided, free of charge, during the school year. For breakfast, fruit and cereal or oatmeal is always available, too. Our cafeteria has really good food (most of the time) and finding healthy foods to eat for lunch is never hard to do. Now that school is out, I'm on my own for lunch. Eating out everyday is not in the budget, so today I packed my lunch and ate breakfast before leaving for work. It all felt very clumsy, if you can imagine. I felt like I didn't know what I was doing. Doesn't that sound pathetic?
So, here is my breakfast, which I ate quickly, since my attempt at packing lunch was so awkward. I had Quaker's Cinnamon Weight Control Oatmeal with 1 T. wheat germ and an egg white omelet with 1/4 cup of low fat cheese. Yummo.
Then lunch was a package of Starkist Tuna Creations Lemon Pepper flavor, with salad and Garlic Sensations dressing, and a peach. My water bottle has water with a little OJ mixed in it which is very tasty. (I ate most of it before I remembered to take the pic)
I carried my salad in this cute little Fit & Fresh bowl.
This cute little bowl has a dressing container that snaps into the lid. You twist it to release the dressing into the bowl. Clever, huh? Well, silly me, when I took the lid off, I didn't remove the little dressing container. It fell and bounced on the table and of course, bounced on my leg and onto the floor. The one day I'm wearing light colored pants, lol! So here's how that looked.
I don't know if it was because I decided to photograph my food or what, but today was a little off. This is just not my thing. Maybe if I had a more capable cell phone and I posted the pics that way, I don't know, but from here on out I'll be logging my food at myfitnesspal.com, no pics necessary!
To finish off the day, sans picture, for dinner I had salmon and roasted veggies. I rode my bike for 37 minutes on a nice breezy evening. So even though my day seemed off, I was successful at sticking to my plan. And that's what counts!
I tried something new and it was fun, sorta. I do enjoy a good picture of someones meal. Anyway, don't forget to drink that water!
