What I've Been Eating (with pictures)

Since I already said I'd post the pictures once a week, I'll make today the first of weekly food posts.
Now, I have realized that it's EXTREMELY hard for me to remember to take a picture of every meal. I remember maybe once a day. But I'm trying, so please bear with me.

Wednesday 10/12

Breakfast: Quaker oats, homemade applesauce (cinnamon)
Lunch: Buffalo Chicken Lunch Meat, Romaine Salad, Croutons, Kraft Italian 5 Cheese blend, and Ken's Ranch
For dinner: Subway, Chicken Bacon Ranch
Also had 3 Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies that a lady in my parents' church made.
Total Calories: 1,840

Thursday 10/13
 The same as the day before, but with lunch I forgot to take a picture until I was almost done...

For dinner was  a taco, with a romaine outer leaf as my "shell", 90% lean ground beef, Aldi's Casa Mamita taco seasoning, the Italian 5 cheese blend shredded, and on the side, 1 cup of red seedless grapes
For Snack (throughout the day, not at once) 1 cup of chocolate milk, 1 oz of Snyder's of Berlin BBQ chips (my Fav!)
2 servings of Star Wars Cheez-Its
Total Calories 1,567

Friday 10/14
Breakfast: 2 cups of chocolate milk, Chobani Flips coffee break bliss

 Lunch: 1.5 cups of broccoli florets, 3 oz carrot chips, 2tbsp Ken's Ranch (realized it was too much in the end) and 1 cup red grapes

Dinner:  Redo of the taco/lettuce wrap. Another cup of chocolate milk, and 3 of Isaiah's pizza rolls that he didn't want to eat

Snack: 1 serving of Star Wars Cheez-Its, 1 serving of Sour Cream and Onion Pringles
Total Calories 1,602

Also went to Sam's club with my dad (thank goodness I don't have to buy my own membership)

Saturday 10/15

Breakfast was oatmeal again, made the same way.

Isaiah had a flag football game, and I forgot to eat before we left (although I made both of us lunch, I left mine on the counter ☹ )

Dinner: I grilled some of the chicken tenderloins from our Sam's Club trip, with Pampered Chef's smoky barbecue seasoning, Bird's Eye Steamfresh Broccoli Florets (1 cup), and another cup of chocolate milk.
Snack: Not a great day, snack wise. I can tell that forgetting lunch was extremely detrimental to my carb intake.
Small DQ Arctic Rush Freeze, kiwi strawberry
Pringles (sour cream & onion) 1 serving
Fritos Flavor Twists Honey BBQ (2.5 servings)
and 3 Original Chips Ahoy cookies.
Yes, I am hanging my head in shame at this. However, I did manage to take Isaiah to the park and walk a mile while he was playing.
Total Calories: 1,820

Sunday 10/16
A little change up for breakfast, added cocoa powder. Needless to say, it did not work well for me. I'll work on it. I ended up not finishing it, but recorded the whole thing in my calories.

Lunch at my parents: 1 chicken leg, baked, roughly 2 oz of baked chicken breast, 1/2 cup idaho mashed potatoes (my mom uses the flakes), 2/3 cup corn  from the garden, and (ah...) 1 slice of cookies and cream pie
Buffalo chicken lunch meat, Italian 5 cheese blend shredded, Romaine outer leaf, and 1 tbsp Ken's Ranch

 Snack: Water with a packet of Strawberry Lemonade mix, 1 pretzel rod
Also, had another trip to a different park. We'll stick with the other one: can't really walk around this one.
Total Calories: 1,519

Monday 10/17

Breakfast: Oatmeal, added brown sugar this time. It's a keeper.

More chicken tenderloin, with the Pampered chef seasoning, romaine salad mix, croutons, same cheese as before, and 1 tbsp Ken's Ranch
Dinner with my parents again (Dad picks Isaiah up from school on Mondays for me)
Breaded, baked pork chops (my Mamaw's recipe that only my dad can make right), with saw mill (white) gravy, 1/2 cup mashed potatoes (again, the flaked Idahoan)

No snacks today

Helped Isaiah practice some football stuff after dinner.

Total Calories: 1,389

Tuesday (today) 10/18

Chobani Flips, coffee break bliss

Lunch: Taco bell (I know) 1 steak Quesadilla, 1 crunchy beef taco, 16 oz Airhead Mystery Freeze

Dinner: 1.5 cups broccoli florets, 1 tbsp Ken's Ranch, 1.5 cups chocolate milk

No snacks today (so far, I'll update this if I have anything)

Total Calories: 1,375

Well, 1 week down, and I managed to take a pic of at least 1 meal per day! We'll see if I can keep it up.

Have a great week! Weigh in will be on Friday.
