tracking eats for accountability

I have found the past few weeks I have been have lots of tummy issues.  Pains,  etc, all not good.  Well if you take a look at what I have been eating you can see why.  I have been working slot of extra 12hr shifts at work,  also not sleeping alot. Which leads to overeating and bad food choice for me.

When I first started this blog,  years ago on spark people.com, I was blogging my eats and workouts to keep myself accountable.  And let me tell you. Often really worked. So when I was complaining talking with Angela about my concerns,  she suggested we keep each other accountable By recording our eats on our blogs for a week. I know,  that when I have to report to Angela, I am going to eat better.  I dont want her to know about all the junk haha.

So I started early,  just to get the ball rolling. I also have a hard time remembering to take pictures of my food. This day I did two workouts (more on that later) so I have lots of proteins and eats

For example,  my first day I forgot to capture breakfast.  Oops.  I have eggs and bacon. So not exciting anyway

Lunch #1: stew meat with shredded cheese, snap peas,  and watermelon

Paleo Chicken Nuggets

The past few weeks, I have been scrolling through pinterest looking for kid friendly paleo recipes. I have been eating about 95% paleo for about a year now. I will have the occasional piece of cake or treat, but for the most part I eat pretty clean. This is a choice for me because I have had tummy issues for years. My trigger foods are carbs and sweets. YEP. all the yummy stuff haha.

I have noticed that when Andrew returns from his dad’s house (where he eats lots of sweets) he will have stomach pains the next morning. One of my main symptoms. I decided that maybe the best would be to show him how we can eat healthy, and it still be yummy too!

Not that it is bad to eat sweets, this is just something we have decided to do here. And I will still pack some sweets with him for lunches and when he is with friends, but just cut the amount down a bit. (one ex. at his dad’s he had a cheese hotdog, macaroni and cheese, and when I asked if he had any fruits or veggies. he said yep. strawberry milk. haha) We had a good discussion fruits and veggies that day. We have also talked about Mcdonalds and fast food in general. He has even heard that the only “real” food there is the milkshakes haha.

Anyway, we have talked about chicken nuggets, and when I saw this recipe on pinterest, I knew it was a keeper
