Monday Morning...

Checking in for Monday Morning...

My glucose was @ 121 this morning...it's really been consistently lower this week since switching up my carbs to mostly fruits & veggies instead of some of the whole grain carbs I was using.

This morning was a little tough to get going...I had to really force myself to get my early morning exercise session in...my wife & I both felt like sleeping. But everyday that I navigate my way through that resistance, I get stronger and stronger.

Yesterday was kind of an interesting food day, here's my break-out:

Pre-Breakfast@4:30am 1/2 balance bar/yogurt honey peanut butter flavor

Breakfast@8:00am 3/4 cup special k protein plus cereal, 1 Blue Bunny Light yogurt/sugar free style/cup of black coffee

Snack@10:50am 3/4 scoop Muscle Milk Light Vanilla Protein Powder w/12oz water

Lunch@1:30pm 1 cup of Egg Beaters, 1/4 cup lean turkey sausage, 1/8 cup fat free shredded cheddar cheese, 1 golden del. apple, 40oz of water

Dinner@6pm Home made Thai Chicken Lettuce wraps/2 wraps, 1/2 cup of mandarin oranges, 32oz of crystal light lemonade

After-Dinner Snack@7:40pm 1 scoop Muscle Milk Banana Protein Powder, 1 Banana, 12oz water all mixed up in the blender and a dash of straight cinnamon on top for garnish, flavor & health.

Nutrition Totals for Sunday:

Calories: 1192
Carbs: 109
Fats: 26
Proteins: 109

I've had a few people ask me what exactly I'm eating etc...so I just wanted to share that from yesterday because even though it's way healthy..it ain't birdseed, in fact it was really awesome....

My wife is a super star and I could not be pulling any of this off without her help, she really has gone above and beyond to help with meal prep and her support is incredible. She deserves as much credit as anyone for my success so far.

Have a really Smooth Monday! Ryan

    Thanks for posting your food. It's interesting to see what others eat. Kudos to your wife!! I know personally it makes a huge difference to have that kind of support. My husband does the grocery shopping (which I HATE) and he cooks most meals. That is such a blessing!

    Keep up the great work---both of you.

    I just read the "big" blog with your interview. How awe inspiring you are, and how brave! Thank you so much for sharing your story with me; I do find you very motivational and I haven't said that to many! What a sweetheart your wife is, but I bet you already know that!
    Thanks again.

    You're doing fantastic! Sometime I feel like I eat more now than I did before I started counting calories. I'm just eating food that don't have a billion calories in it. Keep up the good work!

    I have a nutritionist that I'm working with every week and this is what we are doing currently, it's a constant adjustment...I'm in good hands!

    Ryan are you going by the calories that Spark set for you? I'm curious. Your calories seem real low. I know everyone has their own program but I have learned the hard way to follow Spark not do it my way.

    It's great that you have your wife's support. Getting up and motivating yourself for exercise is always a challenge. But your consistency is clearly what has led to your success so far. You have inspired me to exercise more reguarly. Thanks so much!
