Welcome to accountability, Spitfyre style.  


Starting today, I will document everything I eat and drink...I mean, I do that normally anyway, but not as part of the blog.  I will be sharing pictures of meals, snacks, and drinks...whatever I eat, you will see.  And that, my friends, is a little terrifying...but people in glass houses shouldn't have a food fight, right?  Right.

Weigh-in Wednesday - April 30th, 2014

7:30 AMish - 8:30 AMish
My regular breakfast is some sort of fruit, 1/3 of a cup of sugar-free, high-fibre cereal, 100 grams of sugar-free, fat-free yogourt, 1/8 of a cup of chopped nuts.  AND, I simply must have a lovely non-fat latte in the morning.  Mostly because my lovely non-fat husband makes it for me and it's frothy with love.  He steams 3/4 of a cup of skim milk and adds that to a double shot of espresso.  Mmmm...and I'm in Italy.

Today is no different than any other, however, I made sure to measure everything and to use a smaller bowl...I find the bigger the bowl, the more I add to it!  And, I went bananas are amazing.  Can't stand yellow bananas, I am a total weirdo.  Just the 1 green banana this morning, the cereal, pecans, 2 dollops of vanilla flavoured yogourt, and tonnes of cinnamon.  I also opted for 32 ounces of genmaicha (玄米茶 = brown rice tea) with lemon after I finished the café.  Might as well start the day hydrated...and caffeinated.  Haha...
And then I realised I needed to eat something before I headed to bootcamp, but didn't want to  throw it up all over myself.  So I opted for a protein bar.

11.15AM to 1.45PM
Walked to bootcamp, bootcamp, walked home.

I was starving after bootcamp, but had promised a certain furbaby that I would walk her on the beach with her mommy, so I grabbed a can of tunafish and mixed it up with some fat-free mayo and dill.  My lovely mommy made a fantastic fruit salad to go with...also, we noticed that Pinta dog will eat apples, but prefers them to be peeled first.  I was not so particular.

Afternoon sometime
Went to Willows Beach with my momma and the dog.  Have a lovely walk on the beach...40 minutes or so.

4PM or so
Apple (not peeled)

5PM..hurried home to get it into me before taekwondo.  Luckily, I had made a Japanese omelette (1 egg and 2 egg whites) and stir-fry yesterday...leftovers.  I added some kimchi and some Asian microgreens just for fun.  And of course some Iron Goddess tea, you need that if you're going to kick some arse in taekwondo.

6.30PM to 7:45PMish
Yet another sweat show!

Okay, you're going to make fun of me here, but I just had to have some crispy rice things.  Stéphane was eating them, so I had some ketchup flavour, I portioned them out...and then added mustard.  Because what goes better with ketchup?  And yellow mustard is good for muscle soreness...and I always have that.

Celery and daikon sticks, because ketchup and mustard only go so far.

Thursday - May 1st, 2014

Let's start with a latte, obviously...with loads of cinnamon.  Uh-oh, I ate all the fruit in the house.  How am I going to have my traditional breakfast if I don't have any lovely colours to mix into my cereal?  Well, I'm crafty, and I have even if it isn't very balanced, I know what to do.

2 spicy chili veggie dogs, chopped up, 1 ts. of avocado oil in the pan, fry 'em up with an egg, some Cajun spice and some fabulous Crystal hot sauce from Louisiana and voila!  The "new" beige meal.  Add some mustard for colour...and also, just because I freakin' love mustard.

Loved the run I went on the other day, so did it again.  We live in the most beautiful of beautiful places, so I took advantage of my surroundings and ran around the neighbourhood for 45 minutes...perhaps not the best for my knees, but sometimes I can't help myself.

I have my eating disorders programme, so it's lucky that I have have leftovers, so lunch was just that.  Stir-fried exotic veggies added to the pan with newly steamed broccoli and some prawns.  Added a bit of Chinese black vinegar and some oyster sauce, and top off with some Sriracha deliciousness.

I have a tea fetish, so it's no surprise that I always have several varieties in the fridge.  A little Silk Road green with a slice of lemon.  Yum.

Biked to and from my eating disorders programme - and this is why am am always a sweaty mess when get there.  Haha...

2 different kinds of apple.
Thank gods I always have apples in my bag.  I thought I'd forgotten.
Latte...made by my darling husband.

I LOVE GROCERY SHOPPING!  A whole wack of new fresh veggies means a vat of something for dinners the rest of the week!  Dinner was chili amazingness.  Want to know what goes into my fabulously spicy chili con carne!?

1 ts. avocado oil
2 giant yellow onions
900 gm extra lean ground beef (remember, it's a vat of chili)
1/2 c. of pre-made chili seasoning
2 red bell peppers
1 green bell pepper
2 poblano peppers
3 Anaheim peppers
1 jalapeno pepper
1 can of chipotle peppers with adobo sauce, puréed
5 tomatillos
1 giant bunch of Swiss chard
1 huge bunch of spinach
2 large cans of chopped tomatoes
1 decent sized zucchini 
2 cans of baby corn
4 chopped carrots
1 large can of black beans
1 medium can of tomato sauce
1 can tomato paste
1 bunch of Italian parsley
1 bunch of cilantro

Sounds good, right?  Om nom nom...I let it cook until the veggies are cooked through, but not super soft, I still like a little bite to my chili...obviously, to the teeth and spice-wise.  

For a special treat, I put 1/4 cup of cottage cheese on top, chopped green onions, and a tablespoon of bacon bits.

Friday - May 2nd, 2014

Morning re-run
If I know what I'm going to's easy peasy to get ready in the morning, right?!  So I prepare the same breakfast frequently.  This time I'm using raspberries as well as bananas for the fruit component in my yogourt, cereal, nut mix...don't forget a healthy dose of cinnamon.

Latte, cereal, fruit, yogourt, pecans
I can't help myself...I want chili, it was so good last night.  And I'm going to ride my bike to spinning and then go to spin class and then ride my bike home...I can have chili for second breakfast! 

Spin class

Cut up pieces of orange...because I'm a kid at heart and want to put the peel in my mouth and then smile like an idiot.  Haha...
Also, a lovely latte with my folks.

Amazing salady goodness.

Writing down all my meals here, I realise that I have not been packing the right sort of snacks, apples are all well and good, but I obviously need more protein to keep me going...the milk in a latte only goes so far.  

After coffee with the folks, I headed home for a good feed...I mixed lettuce and 2 kinds of sprouts and cucumbers and green onions and carrots and celery..well, you get the picture, because I forgot to take 1..haha.  I added 75g of cooked shrimp, 1/2 an avocado, and some yasai fumi furikake (Japanese rice seasoning).  

My pseudo Japanese dressing kicks ass as well...

Start with a bottle of Gyoza sauce
Add some prepared wasabi
Rice vinegar
Green onions
A teeny bit of sesame oil
Blenderise the sucker until you have a thick and delicious salad dressing that'll make your eyes water in a good way.
