Default Weekly Journal Buddy Thread (Oct. 3-Oct. 9)

Friday was higher than anticipated because we stopped at Sonic on the way to Va Beach (we don't have them up near us, so it's always a Va Beach trip treat). Now, here's a good example of why I don't normally post my food on the weekends...

Friday:
  • instant oatmeal (peaches 'n cream flavor, reduced-sugar, made with water)
  • cheese pizza (either 1 giant slice or 2 normal slices )
  • reduced-fat chocolate milk
  • Sonic grilled chicken sandwich (grilled chicken, lettuce, and honey mustard on bun--343 cals), 2 mozzarella cheese sticks (152 cals), and a strawberry cream pie milkshake (about 600 cals --now that I just looked it up, I'll probably never have one again! )
Total: about 2630 calories

Saturday:
  • 2 mini cinnamon bagels with Country Crock spread
  • reduced-fat chocolate milk
  • protein bar
  • 1/2 ham and swiss sandwich
  • Captain George's buffet restaurant for dinner (fried scallops, corn on the cob, manicotti, crab salad, potato salad, cornbread, desserts...)
Total: oh, about a million

Sunday:
  • 2 slices French toast w/Country Crock and light syrup, 2 small sausage links, light orange juice (the 50% less sugar and calories kind)
  • small slice of apple pie (about half the size I would normally have) with 1 scoop light vanilla ice cream
  • apple
  • home-made chicken cordon bleu, alfredo noodles, and corn
  • ColdStone milkshake (mint ice cream w/oreos mixed in)
Total: entirely too many

Back on track for today:
  • strawberry yogurt (light, no sugar added)
  • instant oatmeal (banana bread flavor, Weight Control, made with water)
  • frozen fish filet
  • grilled cheese and tomato soup
Total: should be about 1200, I think (I'll double check, though)

Wow! 600 kcals in a milkshake!? Then again, I think nothing of spending that on a bottle of wine, so there's no room for me to talk!

Sun 02/10:

Breakfast: 500 ml coffee, 1 cup Optimum Slim cereal, 1 oz seedless raisins, cup 0% milk.
Snack: Shake (6 oz banana, cup 2% yogurt, crushed ice, vanilla extract).
Lunch: 4 oz pork loin on 2 oz whole-meal pita, 1 tblsp. Phili Light, romaine, tomato, 500 ml water.
Snack: 1 oz granola, 500 ml water.
Dinner: Baked falafel with raw veggies (broccoli, carrot, rocket), cup hummus, 500 ml water.
Extra Drinks: 1 litres water, 250 ml Reduced-Salt Oxo, 250 ml green tea, 500 ml diet cola.


Total kcals: 1503 (plus free veggies)

Exercise: 4 miles WATP.

Today's plan:
Other than my usual brekkie, I have no idea!

LOL yup, 600 cals in a milkshake (it might even be more--the Chocolate Cream Pie shake had over 700 calories, and the regular Strawberry shake had about 550, but they didn't have the Strawberry Cream Pie shake listed)--and that's for the regular...good thing I didn't get the large!!

Wow! It's shocking when we find out what we've really been putting into our bodies, isn't it? I cringe when I think back to the pints of Ben & Jerry's, or the 20 packs of Chicken McNuggets and fries I've eaten with nary a thought of their nutritional value. It's downright scary! But, what's done is done. Just chalk it up to a lesson learned, and try to do better next time. I know the weekends are hard for you JillyBean, I wonder if perhaps, Howie's weekend challenges could be re-instituted? Since so many others also struggle with weekend eating, maybe you guys could encourage each other to get through the weekends clean. Just a thought...

I live in Richmond, and I know what you mean about Sonic. When we go to Williamsburg or Va Beach, we always stop too One of my favorite things that I ALWAYS get there is a Route 44 Diet Cherry Limeade. At 40 calories, it's a keeper!

And been there, done that at Captain George's too

Hi Folks,

My reality check was when I asked for the nutritional menu at Baker's Square (do they have those in Canada?). A piece of carrot cake... 1200 kcals!!! I had no idea

Today was a pretty mundane day for me food wise, although I had a yummy silk snapper recipe for lunch. BTW, I tried a variation on the 1 point WW muffin w/ devil's fook cake mix, 1/2 cup OJ or water and a can of pumpkin. (no eggs or oil as on box) Yummy for when you want a low cal chocolate treat, although I liked the cranberry orange ones better. Have fun DCM

P.S. I keep meaning to ask, what is Tim Horton's?

Tim Hortons (aka "Timmys") is a coffee/donut shop that boasts great coffee (although Howie says in Ohio the Timmys coffee is bitter), great 4 point chili, yummy 1 point "Timbits" (donut holes) and donuts to die for (especially the Canadian Maple - though nobody here indulges in them anymore ). Tim Horton himself was a Canadian NHL hockey player who was tragically killed in a car accident. At the time of his death there were a few franchises operating, but now there's a Timmys on just about every street corner in Canada!

Gotta get my tushie to the gym today--went home and crashed on the couch all evening yesterday, so double time on the elliptical!

Today:
  • strawberry-banana yogurt (low-fat, no sugar added)
  • stuffed sole (stuffed w/shrimp and crab and covered in a light sauce)
  • instant oatmeal (reduced-sugar, made with water)
No soda this morning (even though it was diet) so I will drink more water--gotta keep flushing out the weekend sodium-filled crap!

Hi - I don't usually do journal postings but thought I'd try it. I actually made a good choice this am - up early with my eldest. I had bran flakes and skim. Really craving toast and PB but settled for celery and PB. Know what? It actually satisfied me. A good start for the day

Yeah, I agree that fast food can be a real problem. It's often a whole series of bad choices. I pick one, like chicken nuggets, and it can usually be worked into your plan. But if on top of that I eat the fries and a shake and a chocolate chip cookie, it blows my plan completely. So I have to keep reminding me that I can get the other things if I really want them another time.

For example, eating out at Popeyes (best fried chicken!!) always consists of chicken, onion rings, red beans and rice, and one of their wonderful cinnamon apple pies. But I can't eat all that at once anymore. However, I refuse to completely deny myself. So I'll get it all, and eat one piece of chicken and the onion rings, then the next day have the other piece of chicken and the red beans and rice (the red beans and rice have more calories and fat that the onion rings, can you believe it? no wonder they have such a wonderful "mouth feel.") I split the apple pie, or go without.

Strategies like this have really helped me face the temptations of fast food, since I know it's unrealistic to never go out for fast food again.

Anyway, on with my eats for yesterday:

MONDAY

Breakfast:
almonds
cottage cheese
apple

Lunch:
tomato and okra
roasted veggies - zucchini, peppers, onions, carrots
roasted chicken breast

Afternoon snack to keep the Beast at bay:
orange
Poppycock Just the Nuts (mixed nuts in toffee)

Dinner:
Roy Rogers RR Bar Burger (burger with ham and cheese)

Snacks throughout the day:


Drinks:
water
coffee w/cream


Calories:
about 1600

Exercise:
walking
stairs
