I'm not sure how to define today.

You tell me.
  • two bowls of Honey Nut Cheerios in whole milk
  • about three cups of grapes
  • huge Chef Salad from Elmo's in Carrboro
  • handful of pecans
  • banana
  • 10oz Ribeye, five ribs, baked potato (salt and copious butter), three yeast rolls (some butter), two french fries (honey mustard and stolen from the kids), all from Texas Steakhouse
  • Cytofuse recovery shake
Fat is probably still high, but sugar has been in check all week. The Elmo's salad had ham, turkey, roast beef, one whole boiled egg, cheese, tomatoes, and lettuce and I put honey dijon vinaigrette on it. It's a large salad, too, and I ate it all. Ate every bit of my dinner, too. Was fairly hungry at dinner, but was pretty full after.

Oh, and while I'm not breaking things down by meal, I am trying to keep everything in the order it was eaten. When you see breakfast as a shake and a bar followed by a recovery shake, that means I did a morning workout. There's a recovery shake at the end of today because I went and ran on the treadmill when we got home from supper. Even on days when I play basketball at lunch, I typically sleep late those days and have the bar and shake before noonball, then a recovery shake right after (I take that with me now) and then lunch pretty quickly after that.

I feel a bad day coming on at some point, but I'll go with "good" for today. I'm open to opinions as well as suggestions on healthy snacks. So far I've got fruit, nuts, and Clif bars in my arsenal.

WTH is laughing cow cheese? Never heard of it.

As for the other thing, yeah, I've been thinking of adding peanut butter to the snack mix somehow. Never been one to do it with apples, but with bananas...

laughing cow cheese is a soft cheese so it's spreadable on stuff but it's really low fat and have like 35 calories. it comes in a little foil triangle perfect for one portion size. and there are diff flavor varieties.

Interesting. I can eat celery, but I'm not a huge fan. I shall have to try the laughing cow cheese with something else, though. Saltines ain't bad for you, really.
