Cardio this morning: Treadmill - moderate pace @45min
The hunger kicked in hard last night. I wasn’t feeling very good after work – headache, lethargy (still a bit jet-lagged, I’m thinking). Once I sat down for dinner though, I couldn’t get full. Also, the last couple days had me peeing non-stop. Libido is definitely on the rise.
Food info: I had to make due with what we had for a couple days until getting back to the store & restocking – I cooked up a batch of biscuits & sausage gravy, as well as beef stew (simple recipe: beef, carrots, onion, potato, garlic, balsamic). Both meats were from a local farm – very lean & flavorful. The sausage gravy wasn’t very gravy-ish, more of a coating around chunks of sausage, as I hate to add that much butter… But getting back on track – my weekdays are pretty consistent, but weekends are all over the map.
Normal weekday –
Breakfast (@10-11am): 2 hard-boiled eggs, greek yogurt (w/ raw almonds, chia seeds, & flax seed, and a few raisins), granola bar
Lunch: chicken or fish, veggies (usually green beans), quinoa
Dinner: same as lunch – I cook large amounts of dinner & save for lunches
Snacks: Protein shake, hard-boiled egg, &/or nuts (mostly almonds & pistachios, sometimes peanuts). Usually not much of a snacker otherwise (as this is where my willpower usually fails – chocolate & sweets…)
I keep trying to log my food, but always get discouraged when crunching the numbers. I’m not convinced that it’s very accurate – like when seeing how much meat can vary from animal to animal, or how can a home garden veggie & conventional industrial farmed veggie have the same nutritional value? I also consume a fair amount of game. Although, one concession is that I do recognize that I could get better by having a scale & weighing everything.
Question: how do you accurately log food, like when cooking-Do you enter each ingredient of the dish or the finished meal? How about when eating out?
