I have been doing pretty well with my diet these days with one exception. Dinners. The last 3 dinner I had junk food, Subway, and pizza. To be fair, Subway was able to fit in my meal plan. It gave me 3 oz of protein, 4 oz of grain, 1 cup vegetables, and 2 tsp of fat in one 6″ sub. Pizza not so much.
Honestly, the last two days have been a bit of a blur. I know I’m doing okay because I am tracking my meals for hits and misses. Did I eat a planned meal or a meal that fits my plan? If I did I give myself a point. Did I miss a meal? That’s okay. Half a point. Did I eat complete crap? No points. By this measure I am at about 80% for the week.
My trend seems to be having poor dinner choices. It makes sense. I love to cook but not after a long day of work, a workout, and and hour of basketball. Looks like it’s time to meal prep dinners.
Wednesday I hit the mark on all my meals but that’s counting the 6″ Sub. I got in my normal weight training, but I didn’t have anyone to play hoops with. No cardio equals not fat loss. Hopefully I can get some games in Friday.
Thursday was a descend day of eating but I was not very active. I had a planned day off from the gym so I decided to take my daughter to Barnes and Noble. I love going to the bookstore. All the books and all the possibilities. Unfortunately, Barnes and Noble also has a toy section these days. Not a book was read. It was just an hour of toy sampling. Lesson learned.
Thursday night was also football and fantasy draft night. I watched the pre-season game and did my fantasy draft. It’s funny how football impacts my food choices. The whole reason I decided to get pizza was football. How I have developed this association is beyond my conscious mind but It’s there and football season is here.
Looks like I’m going to need a game plan.
