Sometimes I need to remind myself why I blog. My blog isn't a job. It isn't a recipe site. My goal isn't to attract the most readers, get the most comments, or be a sponsor for companies. It's a personal daily food journal. It's easy for me to get wrapped up in the midst of things and lose track of what I'm really supposed to be doing here. In fact, I've been so focused on the technical aspects of blogging that I didn't even want to do a post this weekend. I'm supposed to be blogging my food intake everyday. I've gotten distracted and neglected that. Sure I've lost weight in the last month or so but soon I'll be given the opportunity to take things to a new level. It's time to get back to it... Time to lose these last 20lbs and really establish a healthy lifestyle for myself and family.
My goal is to blog almost everything I eat. Unfortunately, I'm a creature of habit and routine. I like to keep things consistent therefore eating the same things most of the time. Will the repeated pictures of protein shakes and coffee get boring? Yes. Will I lose readers? Yes. But that's not what it's all about.
Last night we had pizza for dinner.
Chicken, mushrooms, onion, a little bacon, mozzarella, parmesan, and light ranch on whole wheat crust. My husband loved it!
I ate one piece and it was really good!
As always I started my day off with a protein shake, coffee, and the gym. I like the routine in the morning. I like not having to think about my breakfast when I've got two little mouths to feed.
My protein shakes consist of silk unsweetened almond milk and body by vi protein mix.
I did an hour on the elliptical and finished The Hunger Games.
WOW. I'm in love and can't wait to start the second book!
When I got home I had a sandwich thin with peanut butter and banana.
And lunch was a random salad...
Greens, cucumber, red pepper, sweet potato, and an apple chicken sausage dressed with 1t olive oil, 1t, balsamic, 1t maple syrup.
Do you ever get lost in all the blogger hype?
