21 Day Fix: Day Three

 Day Three of my 21 Day Fix journey. 

Today was not the best eating day. As much as I love Smoothie King smoothies (love the flavor and texture) having it for breakfast sets me up for failure for the rest of the day.

I ended up eating a mid-morning snack, which is not the of the world. I do believe that one should eat when hungry, the problem is I was hungry all day. I got into the candy dish at work and ate too much chocolate.

I wolfed down my mid-afternoon snack of Chocolate Shakeology and Orange.

Did not workout today upon arriving at home as I was exhausted and hungry. Although, did get laundry done.

For dinner, I was craving pizza like a mad woman!!! I stopped at Trader Joe's to pick up a Cauliflower Pizza Crust so I could make Pepperoni Pizza. I was trying to make it somewhat healthy! It wasn't all that great. In fact, it was really disappointing. Then I ate Wheat Thins even though I didn't have any more yellow containers. 

Overall, I was short on my vegetables and fruits, while overdoing the carbs and fats. On the positive side, I did drink a lot of water today. :)

BREAKFAST

Smoothie King's Original High Protein, 20 oz, Chocolate Smoothie. I requested no dates, swapped the milk for almond milk, added spinach and fiber enhancer. Of course, can't forget coffee with Half and Half.
