Nutrition Tracking

Yesterday was day 6 of my 24 day challenge.  I tried something new with it.

The past few days I was concerned that I wasn’t getting enough calories for how much I was working out.  Yesterday in particular I did a lot.  I rowed a bunch, I did a WOD of allllll the deadlifts and boxjumps and then I went for a run around a local lake.  Oh, and then I had 2 rounds of dog walks 😛

I made sure to stay within challenge guidelines of what I chose to eat but I also wanted to make sure I was getting the right breakdown of each nutrient: 40% carbs, 30% protein and 30% fat.   I tracked everything in MyFitnessPal.com.  I changed the settings to make sure it was set how I want, not how they suggested.

I have to say, that I am pretty happy with how I did.  Some things I ate yesterday:

Breakfast of banana, toast and some almond butter

Lunch was just a turkey sandwich with a side of chobani.  Boring and no pictures.

Post workout protein shake mixed with water…not something you want to see since it looks like pee, I swear.  But as an afternoon snack I made an awesome protein powder smoothie.

frozen bluebs+almond milk+vanilla protein+1 tbsp pb = yum

Some Spark thrown into the mix.  I swear I am obsessed with this stuff.  Fruit punch is my go-to right now but I am excited to try the new watermelon flavor!

Dinner was shepherds pie, thanks to this girl for all the cooking help.

I need something sweet after dinner so I snacked on a few pieces of pineapple.  Once all was said and done I am pretty happy with my personal nutrient breakdown!

There is definitely room for improvement but I think tracking my nutrition this way for the next few days will really help me a ton!

Do you track what you eat?
