I thought I would start to do an occasional post about what I typically eat in a day on WW! I usually post my food diaries on Instagram but I thought I would group everything together.
This is a typical Work from Home Day for me as I rarely go into the office much, but I can do one of those the next time I go.
On a typical work from home day, I start at 4:15am with an 8oz glass of water and my morning meds (thyroid, heart meds, and an 81mg aspirin). Then I immediately get dressed and head to Planet Fitness with one of these 16oz bottles of water. My aim is 80oz a day.
I drink this during my workout. Today I hit the treadmill and laid off strength training because yesterday was a full body workout.
When I get home from the gym, I fix my hubby a quick breakfast and grab a quick shower. Then I make my protein shake. I have been doing shakes pretty much every day since I had Gastric Bypass in 2009 as I have a requirement of 80 to 120g of protein a day. Being lactose intolerant, on top of having to limit soy has been difficult, but I have been experimenting. This month I have used the Care Of products.
I use 1c of unsweetened almond milk (1 Smart Point), 2 scoops if the Care Of Protein Powder (2 Smart Points) (blended just for me…it is a pea protein), and once a week I throw in Maca (0 Smart Points). I also add ice, cocoa powder and a tsp of espresso powder. My shake is a total of 3 Smart Points. Sometimes I add half a frozen banana. No, I don’t count Points. I am a WW rebel like that. Your mileage may vary. I also have another one of these.
After my shake today, I had breakfast. Today I had an egg scramble. Here is what went in it:
2oz of no nitrate added ham (1 Smart Point), 1 slice of Go Veggie Cheese (1 Smart Point), diced zucchini, mushrooms, green onion, and 2 eggs.
I had this with a 3 Smart Point English Muffin (total Low Carb Fail) sprayed with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Spray (0 Smart Points), 2 tablespoons of homemade guacamole (1 Smart Point) and 1c of fruit. I do measure my fruit. Total points for breakfast are 6 Smart Points, or 9 total for my morning.
I also make myself a cup of Cold Brew.
Zero Smart Points. I use 1 oz of the Evolve Plant Based RTD protein Shake (0 Smart Points), 1 Tablespoon of TJ’s Coconut Creamer (0 Smart Points), and the SF Torani Syrup.
Around 11:00am, I am ready for another bottle of water and the first of my daily supplements…600mg of chewable calcium.
At 12:30 it’s lunch time! Thanks to meal prep, I have this amazing Big Mac Salad all ready to go! It has 3oz of 96% lean ground beef (2 Smart Points), 1/4c of Go Veggie Cheese Shreds (2 Smart Points), 1 serving of Homemade Thousand Island Dressing (1 Smart Point), romaine, tomato, red onion, and diced dill pickles. Having that with more water and a banana. That saladis DELICIOUS…you MUST try it.
At 3:00 I am ready for a snack and all of this is just 2 Smart Points!
I am treating myself to a hot cup of coffee with 1 tablespoon of coconut creamer. Lots of veggies with homemade ranch dip (nonfat greek yogurt with ranch seasoning), an egg, and 2 tablespoons of hummus with Everything But The Bagel Seasoning. Also, half a cup of beautiful blueberries!
Also, here is said dog who I work so hard for. 😂
At 4:30 it is time for the last bottle of water and my afternoon supplements and meds.
I take my Care Of Supplements which include magnesium and garlic among other good things. Plus I take B12, Vitamin C, Colace (ha), 2nd calcium dose, multivitamins and a prebiotic with fiber. Just hit 88oz of water for the day! Huzzah!
5:45 and it is time for dinner. Taco Tuesday!
2 taco shells (3 Smart Points) with 1/4c of Go Veggie Shreds (2 Smart Points), 2 tablespoons of Guacamole (1 Smart Point) and 99% lean ground turkey and veggies. Zero Smart Point Black Bean and Corn Salad on the side. 6 Smart Points total for dinner. This puts me at 22 Smart Points for the day (out of 23).
Finally, a little something sweet before bed!
A little nonfat Greek yogurt with stevia, vanilla, cinnamon, strawberries, and 2 tablespoons of Almond Milk Reddi Whip.
Total Smart Points for the day is 22 out of my daily 23!
