Day 1, I’ve Got This!

Well, Day 1 is done and I must say, knowing that I need to document what I ate throughout the day really helped me make wiser decisions.  Also, since I was snacking throughout the day on unhealthy options, I discovered that I really need to up my repertoire of healthy snacks. 

The lesson of the day? Hydration!


I usually have at least one diet soda throughout my day.  My job has food services which makes it really easy to grab something and continue with free refills ALL day.  Not good.  So today, I only drank water and it’s amazing how much energy I have. 

So lets get down to the eats for the day.

Breakfast.  I started the day with 3/4 a cup of Special K Fruit and Yogurt Cereal and a banana.  I was definitely running late today and you can tell by how little effort went into breakfast. 


Lunch consisted of this salad kit.  Lean Cuisine makes this, and I must admit, it was really delicious.  Does anyone have some good suggestions for healthy lunches on the go? I don’t want to make frozen lunches a habit. 


Later in the day I started to get a little hungry, so I ate this delicious apple.


To round the day out for dinner, I ate this chicken and apple sausage, green beans, and strawberries.  The strawberries didn’t make the picture because I ate them way to fast.  I also grabbed a few bites of fruit and rice off of Sebastian’s plate (shh, don’t tell him!).


I haven’t decided how I will continue to write about my meals day in and day out, so bear with me as I try and figure this all out. I feel good to have the first of many days under my belt.  It gets easier right? At least tomorrow is Friday.
