Today’s Food Diary

Had guacamole from the farmer’s market with my refried beans and rice today and a vegan biscuit with my grapes.

I ate what’s on the left before going to the beach, and what’s on the right just before dinner. On the left it’s a banana, edamame, and a pita and on the right it’s a vegan spring roll.

Vegetable soup.

Exercise was nothing strenuous. Walk with the dog and some time at the beach. It’s kind of a lot of calories for weight loss still. If I were exercising it would be fine though. I’m happy I’m not binging though. Binging causes a lot of damage.

Tomorrow I head to Orlando so I should have different meals to show! 🙂


Beach Day and What I Ate Today (Vegan) 04/20/2016

That’s Jasmine green tea in the middle.

And I forgot to take a picture of my dinner but I can tell you what it was! It was just like lunch, except a larger portion and especially more chips and my husband shared it with me.

So yeah. My MIL cooked but her food won’t be done til like 8:00 PM. I normally don’t eat that late. I might feel obligated to have some though. I don’t want to be rude or anything. I’ll update this post if that happens. Luckily, she is making a vegetable soup and a salad. She typically cooks really healthy food so that’s good.

Also, we are out of Sour Patch. So no more of that temptation! I know I eat pretty much the same thing every day. 🙂 This weekend I’m going to Orlando though and hitting up some theme parks so my meals will be different.

EDIT: Yup, I had some vegetable soup.


Kinda feel like I ate too much today. But it’s nothing compared to binges I’ve had in the past so I’m not worried. I’ll make sure to do some exercise tomorrow. Also, we are out of bread and candy so tomorrow will be a good diet day.

We went to the beach today and I just wanted to share a few photos of it.



It wasn’t a particularly warm day. We didn’t stay very long because we were cold. I still love going to the beach though.




What I Ate Today (Vegan) 04-19-2016

These were my meals today. I bought sour patch candy for my husband and I had some as well. I had 17 pieces which was more than enough. I think 12 pieces was good but then I greedily wanted more. It didn’t really feel good to eat more than that but I know I could have easily polished an entire bag. Definitely would have felt sick after though. Don’t really take that into consideration how I will feel afterwards when I am mindlessly eating though. It didn’t happen! I had those servings and that was it. I removed myself from the situation and went on with my day.

In the morning the pieces of bread were rye and in the evening they were sourdough. I had two helpings of refried beans at lunch. I wanted to make guacamole but the avocados were not ripe. Calorie count? I really don’t know. I’m going to guess over 1500 though.

I don’t have a lot of energy. I haven’t been exercising regularly since we left Austin so that is probably playing a role. Diet probably is also. I think over the next few months I’m going to slowly transition into a diet that includes a LOT more fruits and veggies.


What I Ate Today – Vegan – 04/18/2016

So, these were my  meals today. Breakfast was the usual. We ran out of juice today so won’t be having that until we buy it at the farmer’s market on Thursday. Lunch was edamame, coconut curry (carrots, potatoes, tofu), and a small pita bread. Dinner was refried beans mixed in with veggies that were cooked in coconut oil and basmati rice. I also had about 15 tortilla chips dipped in my husband’s plate of refried beans and rice.

I honestly don’t know what the calorie count is for today. I also did zero exercise today. We’ll see how I feel tomorrow. I usually end up losing weight if I wake up in the morning really hungry.


What I Ate Yesterday 04/16/2016



I had two of these

That last picture is half a vegan ginger snap cookie. I want to take a picture of everything I eat! I ate that piece when we were finally home yesterday (we walked around Miami for four hours!) and we were spread out on the couch in the dark watching TV.

Also, I had 2.5 of those mini cupcakes. We bought two 4 packs. They were freaking amazing! If you’re ever in Miami I HIGHLY recommend Bunnie’s Cakes. It is vegan!

I had two of those Bilimbi cucumbers. So sour! It was really cool eating straight off the tree though.

The Whole Foods dinner was some black beans, vegan yuca, roasted broccoli, and some greens on top. I didn’t eat it all. I ate all the greens and about half of the beans and yuca.

And that picture with the three little empanada-like things, I had one of those. I was sharing with my husband and sister. So.. calorie count? Probably lower than yesterday.



What I Ate Today 04/15/2016

This is what I ate today! I had ten of those sour patch candies which is around 150 calories. What would I change about today? Fewer chips, maybe half the amount of candy.

Calories for today? I honestly don’t know. More than yesterday probably. The buritto bowl from Chipotle is a lot of calories. Probably around 800. So, 800  + 150 + 300 (chips and salsa) + 300 (bread and grapes?) + 450 (oatmeal?) + 180 (juice?) = 2180.


What I ate Today


Personally, given the little amount of exercise I’m getting these days, I think this is too much food. At least it’s not a binge though.

The juice is a strawberry orange juice we get at the farmer’s market. Under the oats are half an apple, half a banana, and 8 almonds.

I have no idea how many calories this is. If I had to guess I’d guess around 1800 calories. I’m aiming for 1500 calories for weight loss. I probably would have managed that today if my MIL had’t cooked dinner :).

As for exercise, I did a one hour intermediate yoga class from the website and I walked the dog in the morning and evening totaling 1 hour and 40 minutes.

Tomorrow I hope to go for an actual jog.
