    Coley's Journal

    Shop Now
    I'm starting this thread to keep myself accountable. I would like to get my diet a little more in check. I'm a sugar addict and stress eater. This will mostly be a food journal, but I'll probably record physical activity too.

    I'll be going through a lot of changes soon (moving, looking for a job, etc) and I know I'll be susceptible to stress!
    My goal is to work through stress in a healthy way, keep my healthy habits consistent, and make some improvements in my diet.

    Here's the link to my blog where I post recipes, if anyone is interested: http://www.thebrighterdesign.com/

    Here's where I'm starting:

    Height: 5' 5''
    Weight: 118 lbs.
    Body Fat: I need to find my calipers and measure!
    Workouts: Walking almost everyday and 1 or 2 HIIT workouts a week. Occasional yoga.

    5/31/15 Food Log:

    Breakfast: Smoothie with berries, half of an avocado, gelatin, 1/2 of a banana and 1/2 of a plantain

    Lunch: Peppers and guacomole.
    Stir fry with steak, leeks, carrots, red cabbage, celery and green onions.
    A few bites of leftover smoothie.

    Exercise: 1 hour hike

    Snack:
    Finished up leftover smoothie

    Dinner: Cucumber slices
    Omelet filled with leftover stir fry and Munster cheese
    Glass of red wine

    Breakfast: Way too early again because we're driving to Indiana to see my family
    Smoothie made with berries, avocado, plantain, gelatin, and kale

    Snack: Starbucks short blonde with heavy cream (I take for granted how well my local barista knows my heavy cream order! I had to ask this girl three times for the "behind the counter, heavy whipping cream" and she ended up giving me a separate cup full of heavy cream. My husband wanted to figure out how to keep it; heavy cream is expensive!)

    7 hours left on our drive!

    Lunch: Leftover steak, sweet potato and leek curry
    Snack mix - sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, mini chocolate chips, dried cranberries and apricots

    Dinner: Beef roast, broccoli, sweet potato and carrot mix and cantaloupe, blueberry and grape salad

    Breakfast: 2 eggs, grapes and a handful of almonds
    Met a friend at Starbucks - I had a short decaf with half and half

    Lunch: My nephew's birthday party!
    Meatballs, fruit salad (with whipped cream) and veggies

    Snack: Decaf coffee with heavy cream

    I'm not super hungry for dinner and I never know what to do in these situations. I'm staying with my parents and if I don't eat when everyone does, I probably won't have dinner but end up hungry later.

    Dinner: I ended up just frying two eggs for dinner.
