Omg, so, I turned on my “big” camera this morning with every intention of photographing my ‘eats’ for the day and literally walked out of the door without it and without any thought of taking pictures! So, bear with me, Imma gonna use some oldies and some Internet sourced pictures. Ha!
[btw, I'm linking up with Peas & Crayons for WIAW again.]
I’m mentioned before that I was starting IIFYM but, honestly, after that, it flopped. I had a major binging period there, I don’t really know why but I started this week really fresh (actually over the weekend), watching my macros to a tee and BOY do I notice a difference already!?!? I had gained about 5 pounds since we’d been back from Hawaii and, while that didn’t really bother me, I am still trying to get my tummy in tip top shape and I KNOW that diet is 99% of that and because I love to have a good treat now and then, IIFYM FTW (the acronyms, oh the acronyms). Anywho, after 4 days of following strictly my tummy is way way less bloated and I’ve not had any binging issues, thank goodness…AND, aaaannnnddd….I ate a Subway cookie today, which was basically a slice of Heaven and two big ol’ juicy peaches! YUM.
Oh, something I think might be useful for those following an IIFYM (If it fits your macros) type of eating plan is the screenshot of my day-end #’s on MFP, so here’s that. I went over a little bit more than I anticipated (I forgot I hadn’t added something earlier today), but it’s still good!
Ok…let’s get started, shall we?
Breakfast, I basically had this except I had scrambled eggs with egg whites.
For a snack, I munched on a Nature’s Valley Oats & Honey bar on the way to the gym this morning (for a training session..woop!).
That held me over through my session and a SHORT lifting session for myself (which I then finished and paired with cardio later that night), then I was STARVING and needed lunch! I had a Subway Chopped Salad made with teriyaki chicken, spinach, green peppers, tomatoes & cheese. And then I had about 3/4 of a chocolate chip cookie that I bought for my little lunch date since he was more interested in the salad than the cookie, whoop whoop!

We headed off to Walmart and I bought some really yummy looking peaches! I chowed one of them down right away, I didn’t even get out of the parking lot before biting into it! Then I also had a Quaker Rice Cake (Caramel).
After picking up my biggest guy from PreK I had a few hours to kill still until my 2nd training session of the day so I munched on ANOTHER one of these!
Once I got home I fixed all kinds of food! I ate some turkey bacon, more scrambled eggs (I could eat eggs ALL THE TIME), some chicken breast sandwich slices and cheese roll-ups browned in a pan (YUM!), another peach and then some more snacks. It was all so yummy too!
Can someone please send me a reminder every Tuesday to take some dern photos of what I eat, please!? Geez.
