So here is what I ate today:
Breakfast:
3 eggs with 1/8 cup cheddar cheese and diced chilies. This was on a Thomas whole wheat bagel thin (110 calories, 6g protein)
I also had a kcup for my Keurig with 4tsp sugar (I know, I am cutting back, trust me it used to be a LOT more sugar), and 1.5 tbs creamer.

Lunch:
"Sneaky spaghetti": whole wheat pasta, tomato sauce, 1 diced tomato, diced red onion and puréed kale. I had 1.5 servings.
1 kiwi
16oz water

10oz of water in between lunch and late snack

Late snack:
Yoplait Greek yogurt
String cheese
25 pistachios
16oz of water

After my workout I will also have my protein drink and during my workout I will drink about 32oz of water.

I can't have both lunch and dinner due to my work schedule, do this is the best way I can make my schedule work. I forgot my Baggie of cauliflower and carrots in the fridge :( so I didn't have that today.
Is this okay? I'm trying to do multiple high protein foods and am working out to insanity 6 days s week.

Forgot to add the sneaky spaghetti also had 3/4lb of ground beef in it (it was a huge pot). We normally buy ground turkey because we both hate ground beef but the store was out of ground turkey.

You did pretty good, definitely cut back on sugar and dont just eat pasta or any carbs without a protien, and add in a serving of veggies. I wouldnt eat ground beef unless it is super lean

I'd cut back to 2 eggs, or better yet, 1.

I only ate about 2, I just ate whatever fit on the sandwich.  I wasn't sure how many I needed to make.  

I don't know what to do for veggies beside just eating them raw.  I hate cooked veggies unless it is with rice.

I figured out today I really only need to make 2 eggs.  I made 3 because 2 didn't look like enough to put on the bagel thin.  I found out it was too much.  I'll probably just make 2 eggs next time.  Trial and error lol

I know you said you are cutting back, but that is still a junk load. There is nothing redeeming about the sugar and creamer- empty calories...

Lunch:
"Sneaky spaghetti": whole wheat pasta, tomato sauce, 1 diced tomato, diced red onion and puréed kale. I had 1.5 servings. Be careful- tomato sauce has a lot of sodium in it. Add more veggies- spinach, peppers, mushrooms, carrots,etc...

Is this okay? I'm trying to do multiple high protein foods and am working out to insanity 6 days s week.Honestly, I'm not a fan of protein drinks. They are a very poor substitute for whole sources of protein and you don't need it. The only reason to use protein powder/drinks is if you are pulling a lot of weights, which you don't do in Insanity. If you beef up your main meals with more veggies, you will be much better off in the long run.

Yeah I know, but I can't drink coffee with no sugar or creamer, it just tastes gross. I cut out soda, so coffee is my only caffeine source, and I need it. I will only do 3 tsp today. It is my only"treat".

Try letting your coffee cool a bit before drinking it.  :-)  Most brewers brew to around 120 degrees or even a little higher.  Coffee tastes best, on its own, between 100 and 115 degrees.  

You could also try just using a Tablespoon of straight up heavy cream instead of prepared creamer and sugar.  The fats in cream add a "sweetness" to coffee without the calories of sugar.

I do let it cool. I can't drink it when it is that hot.  Usually I let it sit for 8ish minutes before I actually drink it.  I cut back today to 3 teaspoons of sugar and 3teaspoons of creamer as well.  The coffee already has a bitter taste but I'll keep it at this ratio until I get used to it.  I don't think I could go down to 2 tsp just yet.
