BrianaDell Posted January 18, 2013 Share Posted January 18, 2013 Hi, I'm Briana. Day 13 for me!! This is the first time I'm posting my log though I have noted every single bite that had gone into my mouth and have it on my google calendar. Up until now, I felt like my food was a little all over the place and knew what I should work on the next day (ie. my first week's addiction to apples with almond better-- "technically" compliant foods, not ideal use of them). And let's be honest, I was shy. Now I feel like I'm sort of figuring things out in general (yay!), finding some new favorite foods, trying some recipes, and working on honing things. Challenges, focuses, and a little about me: - I am still figuring out my Pre/ Post workout meals and what best works for me. Trying to get more starchy carbs in my breakfast and lunch as suggested in one of the athlete posts. I feel like eating the exact same breakfast with added carbs v. not makes me hungry much quicker (4 hours to almost 6). Not bad I guess, just something I'm learning. (I have literally taken my normal breakfast and added, not taking out any of the protein or fat.) - Long days. Tuesdays and Thursdays I am up at 4:30 am and not home until late like 9 or so. I am finding myself wanting to eat all the time - not necessarily hungry, just wanting to eat. A few days have ended up with a few snacks. No, I am not getting enough sleep on those days. This is a big challenge for me. - Stabilizing digestion. I have not really paid much mind to my digestive patterns until now because I figured for the first few days they were still influenced by my previous diet. Now I am paying a lot closer attention. - I am an extremely simple chef - working on variety. I don't really love cooking and have in the past few years only started learning because its necessary for health. I love eating these amazing new dishes, I just wish someone else would make them for me! I am coming from a place (about 5 years ago) where "cooking" meant rice-a-roni and flavorless, overcooked chicken. So I am very open minded about things I will eat but if given the option would cook one gigantic meal and eat the same thing all the time. I am working on making several gigantic meals to rotate and mix-and-match. So here's to vulnerability and accountability! *raises my seltzer* Will post my foods this evening! (Also, wanted to post this now so I have to post my log tonight!) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
