a day in the life of a bandster (18 mo. out)

I can't watch the clips from the Dr. Oz show but have read enough to realize this woman was 1. lying or 2. way too tight!

Yesterday went as such:

5-6 am 2 cups of coffee

7am one bottle of water with my allergy medication

8am luna bar - nutz over chocolate

water

about 11 the husband wanted some pancakes. I tried a couple bites of one (I hate syrup) so it was dry. Got stuck, dumb girl

water

Went for my hike

1pm sliced some skinless apple, sharp cheddar cheese, hummus, and about 5 crackers

water

5pm made ground beef taco's with the super small corn tortillas. I ate two, both with a little cheese, green onion, olives and one slice each of avocado.

Although that was a larger dinner than most days, overall it was a pretty light eating day.

Typical meals
Breakfast/brunch I have one of the following:

Protein bar
canned corned beef hash
an egg w/cheese in a low carb wrap
special k protein cereal

Lunch 1-3PM

I eat tuna often for lunch. An entire can mixed with cottage cheese and avocado
few slices of deli meat wrapped around string cheese
taco bell if out - pintos and cheese, crunchy taco (I can't do the chicken there)

Dinner 5PM

I cook most nights
We have a lot of the same things over and over and over again.

canned salmon patties
baked fish
whole roasted chicken
tortilla soup
pinto beans
Mexican based meals

I try to include a veggie with dinner.

Things I can't eat:
reheated meats
cooked mushrooms
bread for the most part
pasta - although I can eat ravioli
fruits with skin still on
french fries
hot dogs, sausage, links unless I skin them

trigger foods:
carbs.... nuff said! I will be chasing that carb high all day long.

Well... I have some major events I need to blog about soon but right now I get to go pick up my kitty from the vets where he had surgery on Tuesday so I need to run...

  1. I can't do pasta or bread either. I can do sausage though for some reason. Eggs are a problem unless I eat them really slowly. Fruit is a major problem for me. Forget bananas!

    Good luck with the kitty!

  2. I can't do reheated meats either! I hate that, as we eat out quite a bit (I make good choices out though) and a typical meal out can give me four good meals, but lately I have not be able to do left overs! it is such a waste of money! gonna have to stop that!

  3. I can't do reheated meat either if I warm it in the microwave. Sometimes if it's chicken breast, I just leave it cook and put it in a salad or make chicken salad.

  6. Interesting to hear what you eat - that tuna, avocado, cottage cheese concoction sounds SO healthy. Wish I liked tuna and eggs more, they seem like good bandster foods.

    Hope kitty is feeling better. :)
