My Journey

My Life, one day at a time!
Eat the Bear!!!

Eat the Bear!!!

Happy Friday all you jitterbugs out there!  We all made it and it has been one crazy busy week, again, but good!

I am actually getting an early start on this today.  I am checking things OFF my list!  So here goes for today.

First, I want to show you all these “cookies” I ordered and got today.  I saw them advertised, and I think I read about them in a “weak” state, I was probably hungry and wanted something sweet.  But they are by “Eat the Bear”, and they are supposed to be healthy cookies.IMG_0305  This little note comes in the box, and the cover of the box is just so darn cuteIMG_0303  who can resist.  They only have six ingredients, IMG_0304.jpg.. I just got these so I have not tried them yet, but when I do, I will let you know what I think.  I thought it might be a good quick breakfast food, but I think they are more of a snack food.

Yesterday I said I was going blog on my caloric intake, macros, all those things, so here goes, I am only going over yesterday’s information.  It seemed like I ate a lot yesterday, and I am hungry again this morning.

My total caloric intake yesterday was 1736, wow, that is a LOT of calories, my total caloric  burn was 1878 calories.  I walked a total of 7.2 miles yesterday.  My macros were

My food yesterday was:

Breakfast I had

1 apple

1/4 c. oatmeal

1 egg white

1/2 banana

Organic Green Juice

Coffee with 1 oz almond milk and stevia

Lunch was

1/2 container of Organic Girl Protein Greens

A handful of grapes

1 T. Nutritional Yeast

1 c. of crab meat

3 oz of left over roast beef

1/2 banana

Dinner was:


Black Olives

Air Fried Sweet Potato

1 grilled chicken thigh

Salsa Verde

For snacks yesterday I had:

1 11 oz Ensure Max High Protein Drink

My Organifi Gold Juice with 1.2 c. Unsweetened Kefir

1 Fiber One Protein Fiber Bar

I had a total of 72 oz of water  ( I wanted to get a little more in, but that was all I could drink.)

My exercise today was on the treadmill.  We did get out and get about a 2 mile walk in, and after that, I went to the gym and got on the treadmill. I wanted to REALLY run, but I think my knees got cold on out walk, ( Yes, I should have put my straps on,) and they were a little wobbly, so I jalked.  But, my over all time was still a 4.3 mile average, which is not too bad for me.  My goal is to do a little better next week.  I have looked ahead to the weather, and it is supposed to be cold and rainy next week, and the hubs travels next week, so I am sure I will get a lot of treadmill and overall gym time in.  Which, if I keep eating like yesterday I will NEED!

Please feel free to send in you workouts, what you eat, maybe your favorite “HEALTHY” snacks.  I would love to see what you guys do and eat!

Did you all get to read all of the companies that I work with yesterday?  Did you get to check any of the websites?  Do you have any questions on any of these?  If yes, just leave me a comment below and I will get back to you.

I mentioned that my doctor had recommend that I start taking Metamucil everyday, (for my stomach and digestive issues)  so I did start that, I have been using it for three days now, once a day, and I can already feel the difference.  I thought that I was eating such a healthy diet, and I did ask about this.  It seems, that with the autoimmune diseases, and all of the meds that I have to take, these all affect a lot of things within our bodies, and the digestive system is a big one that is affected.  I was told that many people with these issues also get IBS or Crohns, I hope that I am being proactive and heading this off by doing what has been suggested.  I have also gone back to Gluten Free, and I am watching how much dairy I eat.  This is not a big issue for me.  First, I do not eat that much dairy, and you can substitute so many things, like the almond milk, and you can find so many dairy alternatives.  Do any of you have these issues?  I would love to hear from you and how you are working with it.  Send me a comment below.

Well, again, I have to move on to other work things.  I ask you please, to check out all of the companies that I listed yesterday, check out the website, place an order, and enjoy.  You will get GOOD, QUALITY products and, you will be helping to support this blog.  Thank You In Advance!

So, until Monday,

We all need to take a Big Drink Now, stay hydrated, and get that 100 oz of H2O in today!

Get up and do something, I just did 10 air squats, and 1 minute of Running in place, what did you do?

But most important, keep that smile on your face and while you are smiling, think about all of the good you have in your lives, and be thankful for that.

And please leave a comment below, good or bad, just leave a comment,

And have a Great Weekend, and come back Monday for more.  Did you like the blog posts this week?  I hope so!


I would love to hear your feedback
