May 25

Day 12 of my "diet."   Here's my food log, weight, exercise, and thoughts.

breakfast, 8 am:  about 1/8th serving of housemate's smoothie, big salad topped with seed mixturehomemade soy yogurt.  Fruit today (in all the salads) was strawberries, banana, and blackberries.  

Lunch, about 12:45 pm, big salad topped with seed mixture and d'angou pear vinegar.

dinner, 6 pm:   big salad topped with seed mixture and d'angou pear vinegar.

snack, 8 pm:  carrots (1 lb), sugar snap peas (1/2 lb)

Nutritional information:
Calories: 1407; protein 71 g; fiber 93 g.

Weight:  129.2 

Exercise:  mountain biked 2 hours; bike commute 7 miles.

  • I added lightly cooked asparagus and mushrooms to my salads last night so I wouldn't have to cook veggies this morning.  It was very good.  I'm loving these salads.  I expect it must sound weird to eat the same thing for all 3 meals, but I like it and it's relatively easy.
  • I ate my full oz of seeds today.  I'm not sure I think my preferred amount of 2/3 oz (2 Tbsp) is so bad, especially when trying to lose weight.
  • any day that involves mountain biking and no broken bones is a very good day

I'm curious about your shopping routine. I think you said that you shop daily. Do you buy the food for the next day? What's on your shopping list?

Hi Kristi,
I ride by my co-op every day on my way home from work. they have a small parking lot so give a 5% discount if you are on a bike--on weekdays. so I stop on my way home from work every day and get tomorrow's groceries. when I get home I do my food prep for tomorrow. on weekends I drive there and get heavy items like oranges, soy milk, grape juice (for housemate's smoothies), broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, onions, anything long lasting and heavy I can think of. so then on weekdays I'm mostly just buying one day's worth of lettuce, fruit, veggies, mushrooms, carrots and sugar snap peas.
