WOW, September 19 already! Less than a month till I move!!!!

I won't go into what I ate on my business trip or over this past weekend--just know that it was not horrible, yet not wonderful, and now I've got a few pounds of water weight to lose to get back to where I should be. Here's today's eats:
  • pineapple chunks
  • peaches n' cream instant oatmeal (reduced-sugar, made with water)
  • banana bread instant oatmeal (Weight Control, made with water)
  • lowfat chocolate milk
  • Ruby Tuesday Asian steamed dumplings w/thai peanut sauce
9 servings plain water, 4 servings Diet Coke
total: about 1600 calories
exercise: 30 minutes on the elliptical at the gym between jobs, 3.5 hours of waitressing at night

Sunday was frustrating. I wasn't feeling good. Not bad, really, either. I think I have the beginnings of an ear infection. All day I had that semi-vertigo, spacy feeling like my balance wasn't quite...there... I could function, but just wasn't myself, you know? On top of that, it's ToM, and I wanted something SWEET!! I ate a caramel-covered marshmallow from my husband's stash, and a Tastykake butterscotch krimpet (cupcake thing)... and I don't even LIKE those things. *sighs* (marshmallows are only redeemed when they are toasted over a campfire and married to chocolate and graham crackers... or in Peeps, which are a completely different matter) Then later, I had a big bowl of ice cream with caramel. (Can you tell DH is a caramel guy? These are all his treats, and I am usually not even interested. )

Fortunately or not, it was my "free" day, where I try not to obsess over what I eat. I was still within my calorie range for a free day. But that doesn't give me license to eat CRAP, either.

But today I'm back on the wagon, with my cottage cheese and fruit breakfast, and looking foward to a bike ride this evening.

SUNDAY


Breakfast:
cheese bread, toasted, with butter

Lunch:
sauteed mushrooms, carrots, green beans in olive oil with rice

Afternoon snack to keep the Beast at bay:
Tasty Kake butterscotch krimpet (cupcake thingy)
skim milk

Dinner:
steak
hot dog
tortilla chips with red pepper dip and salsa

Snacks throughout the day:
ice cream with caramel topping

Drinks:
water
tea
diet soda
coffee

Calories: ("free" day)
about 2200

Exercise:
rest day

Synger - Sunday is usually my 'free' day when I don't stress over going to 1800 cals or so. However, lately I think I just use it as an excuse to pick all day. I was reasonably good yesterday, but didn't update the software las night... but thinking it might end up being closer to 2000. I'm thinking I need to move my free day to another day because weekends are usually my downfall.

Breakfast
- egg substitute, egg whites, cheese blend, onions
- nectarine

Morning snack
- multi-grain toast with apricot jam

Lunch
- salad (mixed greens, tomato, pepper, cucumber) with FF Red Wine dressing
- peach

Afternoon Snack
- grapes, dried cherries

Late-afternoon Snack (hey it was alcohol or snacks...)
- baked tortillas, cheese blend, salsa

Dinner
- BBQ pork souvlaki
- salad (mixed greens, tomato, pepper, cucumber) with FF sun-dried tomato dressing

Evening snack
- peach, nectarine

Total calories: will update tonight when I get home - 1920!

Exercise: day off for treadmill, 30 mins light swim

I love that warning too, Jill!

My hubby's a real sweetie monster, but like you, Synger, it doesn't usually tempt me. There are some days though, usually just before TOM, that I can welly into his chocolate Smarties. Stinkin' hormones!

I did much better yesterday after Saturday's drink-and-scoff-everything-in-sight (mis)adventure. The last few weeks of unstructured mayhem has knocked me way out of kilter, and I'll be extremely fortunate if tomorrow's WI is favourable. Still, MIL and FIL are returning home in the next few days, and I have Unruly SIL well and truly installed in her own place now! So, now I have no excuse not to concentrate on myself again.

Sun 18/09:

Breakfast: Shake (5 oz banana, crushed ice, vanilla extract, cup 2% plain yogurt).
Lunch: Cheese* & Marmite toastie (2 oz whole-grain bread, 3 oz gouda, 1 oz butter), pile of raw veggies (broccoli, carrot, cauli, celery, radish, tomato).
Dinner: 500 ml Campbell's Chunky soup (Chicken/Pasta), 8 Wheatine crackers.
Snacks: 2 oz seedless raisins, oz almonds.
Drinks: 1 litre coffee, 2 litres water

Total kcals: 1533 (plus free veggies)

Exercise: 1.71 mile walk.

*Much nicer (and cheaper in kcals) with Laughing Cow Light triangles, but still delicious.

I know what you mean about the business trips. It's hard to stay on plan when you are on the road. I gained 9 lbs while traveling last week. Since I have been back home 3 lbs a day has come off so I know it was mostly water. I am still up 3 lbs but by Fridays weigh in that should be gone and maybe some more.

Hmmm... it's almost 8pm and I'm picking at my salad. It's really hard to get on the treadmill when you don't get in the house until after 5:30 (usually I'm in at 4pm). Oh well, where does the time go. Today:

- peach

Lunch
- salad (mixed greens, cucumber, pepper, tomato) with FF red wine dressing
- lean pastrami
- nectarine, grapes, orange

Afternoon snack
- 1 oz guiltless gourmet potato crisps

Dinner
- spaghetti with meat sauce
- salad (mixed greens, cucumber, pepper, tomato) with FF sun-dried tomato dressing

Snack
- plums (unless I run out of time )

Calories: 1573


Exercise: 30 minutes (1.5m) on treadmill, 15 mins light swim
