Sans Sushi

I was supposed to go to Saki Blue with Sistah Pam and Sistah Jana yesterday evening but Jana’s schedule changed so we’re going tonight. Last night was $1 saki night so it’s probably a good thing we didn’t go. I was trying to figure out what I could eat that’s healthy but I can’t find their menu on line so I guess I’ll just have to look when I get there.

Sparkpeople took a lot of time yesterday evening. There’s so much there you could spend hours wandering around. Right now, I’m just trying to log my food and exercise. I actually ate a lot more yesterday because of it. I finished the day and was woefully under on calories and nutrients so I was scrambling to find something else to eat before I went to bed. Settled for Kashi Go Lean Crunch with milk to try to get some additional calories. Those of you who know me know that I tend to overdo when I’m dieting. I don’t eat enough and then I stop losing weight. It was kind of interesting to feel like I did everything perfectly and then do my daily totals and find myself taking a beating for being too low on almost everything. I’m also finding that I tend to be low on the same nutrients consistently. It goes against the grain for me but I’m using it as a learning tool. Making myself eat more when I really don’t want to. Trying to address the needs the nutritional analysis shows.

As far as exercise goes…I was truly committed yesterday. Going for 45 minutes at a higher speed and more incline. Only got 30 minutes however and then the treadmill quit. It probably overheated. I know I did. It was hot as blazes upstairs yesterday afternoon. I guess I could have tried to do something else but I’m not that dedicated yet.

It’ll be interesting to see what I weigh today. I can’t imagine that I’ve lost with eating so many calories and drinking so much water.

Here’s my sparkpeople table from yesterday:


6:00 a.m. update - I pasted this table in here and it’s a mess. Now I can’t delete it or edit it. Guess I’ll have to work on that. Weight is at 185. Same as yesterday.  DS is sending me to work with a 6 oz can of tomato juice, a hard-boiled egg, lite yogurt and a Smart Ones entree.

Your calorie intake was not bad at all. You did well Patty. You keep up the good work.
Have a great Wednesday!

For sushi the best thing to do is avoid rolls with all sorts of sauces such as eel sauces and so on. Usually rolls such as california rolls and the nigiri are lower fat.

Also stay away from tempura’s and anything else fried- if you must have dumplings (gyoza) asked for steamed ones instead of fried :)

Oh, sushi. Geez, it seems everyone is having sushi these days. I think I’m forgoing the salad in favor of some myself today at lunch!! I get these spicy tuna spring rolls (no rice) keeps them fairly low carb and low calorie too. Mmmm… I can’t wait for lunch now! Too bad it’s only 9:30!!

Hard boiled eggs are a great snack/meal. I actually have 2 for breakfast every morning. Hopefully the treadmill will improve its endurance as you do :)
