carbs and protein and fat, oh my!

ok so i'm recording everything i eat or drink in fitday.com so i can tell you all about it and so i can finally find out just what i'm consuming in a day. i went online and found a great article about breastfeeding and dieting. it says to consume between 1800-2000 calories a day, and for those calories to be split up into 45-65% carbohydrate, 10-35%protein, and 20-35% fat.

can i just tell you that when you are trying to eat healthfully, it's actually hard to get enough calories? and in the right categories? i just downed two huge glasses of milk to get the percentages right and to get at least near the calories i need. anyway here's what i ate today.

breakfast:
nutragrain whole wheat frozen waffle with peanut butter
half a pear (can't eat the last pear without sharing it with miss d!)
coffee with coffeemate (the coffeemate has tons of sugar but i love love love its hazelnutty goodness.)

lunch:
homemade salad with chicken, romaine, red pepper, crispy noodles (another indulgence), almond slices, mandarin orange slices, and olive oil and red wine vinegar

dinner:
wendy's mandarin chicken salad

after-dinner snack:
low-sugar yogurt with dried blueberries and almond slices
two huge glasses of milk

oops babies crying. finish tomorrow.
