Tuesday

What I ate:

  • Smoothie: juice of two small oranges, one whole orange, 1/2 bulb and stalk fennel, lots of chard! (yum!)
  • Raw juice made from: large bunch kale, juice of one lemon, 2 asian pears (YUM) (also no way to accurately put this in nutridiary so I tried but I know it’s not exactly accurate)
  • Entire avocado w/ bit of sea salt
  • pomello (entered as grapefruit in nutridiary)
  • 2 oranges
  • ugli fruit (entered in nutridiary as grapefruit)
  • soup made from a teaspoon of garlic infused coconut oil, and LOTS of sweet onions (too many). This tasted really good and satisfied the hunger craving I was having and I stayed full a LONG time … but too full feeling later when running 😦 this was even though it was less coconut oil than the previous day.
  • cucumber, lime, romaine green juice

Nutritional analysis for the day (nutridiary):

  • 73% carbs, 7% protein, 20% fat
  • 1416 calories
  • short on my goal for protein of 10% as well as slightly short on my iron goal, but everything else was exceeded as far as what it tracks for

Fitness was a 2.5 mile hard run — hard as in I kept wanting to stop — until I was done and then I felt great! I wonder if it was eating the coconut oil within 2 hours of the run that made it harder? Hmmm… will have to experiement on that one.

Wednesday

What I ate:

  • Smoothie: 4 Bananas, 2 cups spinach, 4 celery stalks
  • Cup raw carrots
  • 2 small zucchini, 400g mixed lettuce and spinach greens, bit raw onion all w/ a creamy dressing of blended cashews, nutritional yeast and mustard seeds , and some sunflower seeds on top
  • 1 tomato, 1 orange, 1/2 cucumber, 2 stalks celery smoothie (was supposed to be dressing but when I used the  nut sauce instead, I sipped on the dressing just as I would a green smoothie)
  • orange
  • supper salad: orange pepper, 1/2 large cucumber, handful greens, half avocado, juice of one lime and bit sea salt
  • 1/2 orange
  • Also few bottles of water throughout the day

I did only about 5 minutes of rebounding so I didn’t log it; for running I did 25 minutes of speed work — up to 6mph for 2 minutes at a time 3 x and 5.5 a couple of other times while alternating slow jub and fast walk at other times. 🙂

Nutritional analysis as done by nutridiary:

  • For the day: 54% Carbs, 11% protein, and 35% fat (nuts, seeds, and avocado — no OIL today)
  • 1432 total calories
  • 54% of my calories were consumed at lunch (and I could tell — I felt HEAVY afterward – don’t know if it was plain overeating or too much fat/nuts)
  • all of the nutrients it tracks (sadly not all I would like to track) showed me exceeding daily limits, including Iron and calcium.

I felt great all day except for the heavy feeling after lunch. I think it helped that I at lunch a bit earlier than the day before and may have been part of why running was easier today (no oil/fat late in afternoon). Otherwise my eyes were itchy in the evnening and I had to blow my nose a few times (including while eating supper) but that’s it. I do wonder soemtimes if I need to cut back on peppers / night shade plants and if they could be bothering me some. I have been eating A LOT of colored peppers so after the ones I have are gone, I’m going to try to cut back for awhile. It can be challennging to keep things simple and easy and yet rotate my food choices.
