Food Diary

April 7 – Food Dairy & Workout

I would say I’ve been eating healthy even before Kayla’s workout plan, so eating healthy now isn’t too hard. I fatigue slower during workouts & feel more awake throughout the day when I feed myself appropriate foods. Today I finished week 4 legs & cardio. I think at this point, I would not be able to give up, I’ve come too far. I’m ALMOST 1/3 done with BBG 1.0. I was looking at the next couple weeks of workouts & it’s getting so much harder, but I’ve been getting so much stronger. Need to keep pushing through & stay committed.

I don’t have classes Monday this quarter so I ran some errands & spent the day at home studying & eating. Even though I had a free day, my meals were simple because I had to study 😦

Anyways, here is my food diary for the day! & my beary cute breakfast :’)

Breakfast (10 am)
1 slice of whole wheat bread
1/4 cup blueberries
1 banana
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 cup almond milk
10 almonds
= 458 calories

Gym at 12PM
I did BBG 1.0 week 4 Leg & Cardio workout. I wear my running arm band for all my workouts. Apparently, I’ve been sweating so much that my sweat went through the band & onto my phone… changing my phone case color. This is good, I’m working hard! When I started BBG 1.0 I literally died the first week. After getting use to her workouts, I feel more awake & stronger everyday. It’s still hard & I shout at myself in my mind to keep pushing during the 7 minute intervals… #deathbykayla

“Only 2 more 7 minute intervals.”
“Only 2 more minutes till my 30 second break”
^ My thoughts during the workouts, haha!

I did circuit one 2 1/2 times during both 7 minutes periods! So happy.
For circuit two I went through it 2 1/2 times as well! During week 2, I remember I could barely go through either one twice.

Monday 2 & 4

Lunch (1:30 pm) 
Whole wheat Middle Eastern Flatbread
1 cup spinach
1/3 medium avocado
5 oz 99% fat free lean turkey
5 oz green beans (separate from the wrap)
1 apple
= 562 calories

Snack (4 pm) 
2 extra dark chocolate wedge pieces (Trader Joes) I LOVE THESE.
1/2 cup blueberries
1 Halo Tangerine
= 161 calories 

Dinner (7 pm)
1/2 cup brown rice
Egg whites steamed with seasoned chicken
1/2 cup sauteed green beans
1/2 cup sauteed spinach with garlic
= 392 calories

My dinner intake is usually the least because I don’t enjoy being super full for the rest of the night. I want to sleep without feeling bloated or full.

Snack (9 pm)
-1 Halo Tangerine
-10 small carrots
= 92 calories 

I only had 1,667 calories today. It’s weird because I wasn’t really hungry today. Usually, I constantly get hungry and by the end of the day my caloric intake is around 1,800-1,900. Weird, same thing happened to me yesterday! I ate my after dinner snack because I felt like I didn’t eat enough today, but I wasn’t hungry.

I usually get hungry after 10, which kinda sucks. But I always make sure I eat something small, just to hold me over until the next morning. I don’t splurge & eat another meal.

    1. My goal is to get fit & toned by doing kayla itsines workouts, and eating healthy to fuel my body for her workouts! I am 5’5 and 123 pounds, so if I were to lose weight it would just be a couple of pounds. My fat will just be turning into muscle.

      But, eating healthy is the MOST IMPORTANT factor when trying to lose weight! Depending on your goals, body weight, height & daily caloric needs, you can set a caloric goal to lose weight. 3500 calories equal 1 pound. You can decrease your caloric intake by -250 a day, and exercise -250 calories a day. This will mean -500 calories/day, leading to -3500 calories a week = losing 1 lb/week.

      Planning your meals ahead of time help with eating healthy! For example, I plan my meals for the whole week every Sunday, and buy all my groceries on that day as well. Remember, don’t starve yourself! Eat nutrient dense foods, including many fruits & vegetables. Stay away from soft drinks, high processed sugary foods (donuts, cookies, cakes, brownies, etc), high fat spreads/sauces, etc. Look at the foods I ate for my food dairy, I think it’s a great idea of sample meals you should be eating when eating clean.

      You can still have your sugar in moderation. Don’t completely restrict yourself. Look up clean recipes of foods 🙂 My 2 ingredient cookies are a great replacement for cookies, just add some honey or raisins to sweeten it up more!
