My life through the looking glass... Day 19

We're certainly not through day 19 yet but I know that I'll be working the rest of the day and won't really have time to write later.

I know I don't get enough protein. I have no idea how I could conceivably eat as much protein as my trainer wants me to. 120 grams of protein is a LOT.

To give you some perspective, if you wanted to get that from chicken, you would have to eat 3 - 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts per day to get that much. I really don't like chicken, but that's is not the point, it's just a lot of meat, cheese, eggs, lentils and shit to get into me and I really don't eat a lot of meat. I think I'm going to have to give in and start taking some protein supplement powder or something, must go to GNC, I guess.

I didn't put up a food log from yesterday so here goes:

Breakfast - 73 Calories

3 Arrowroot Cookies

Lunch - 608 Calories

1 Cheese Bagel w/ Herb & Garlic Cream Cheese

6 Cups of Coffee w/ Milk & Sweetner

Dinner - 869 Calories

1 Cup chopped mixed vegetables

2 Cups whole wheat pasta

2 tbsp mayonnaise

75g roasted chicken

1 tbsp flax seeds

Daily Total:

1550 Calories

41 g Fat

69g Protein

225g Carbs

Yeah, yeah. Too many carbs, not enough protein. Gotcha.


  1. try costco for protein powder
    gnc is good, but they charge you alot for it.
    i got mine from costco and its vanilla flavoured, tasts great and i get 40 grams of protein per one scoop

  2. I love the D&G pic. Beautiful.
    Keep up the diet efforts. =)
