Default Weekly Journal Buddy Thread (24-30 October)

Good to see you're back, SAPF!

I find FitDay far too frustrating and time-consuming to use. It has a nasty clunky interface, and almost everything I eat is nowhere to be found in its database. I know there are a lot of people here who love it, but I'm not one of them. I think some of it, for me, is that measurement in cups seems to be the norm there, and I'm much more likely to use actual weight. Horses for courses, I suppose.

Sun 23/10:

Breakfast: 1 cup Optimum Slim cereal, cup 0% milk; 500 ml coffee with 2 tblsp. half & half.
Snack: 4 Safeway ginger snaps; ,250 ml green tea.
Lunch: 3 sushi maki rolls, salad (red cabbage, carrot, cucumber, tomato); 1 l water.
Snack: 3 pancakes (2 servings)**; 500 ml water.
Dinner: 5 oz chicken breast (grilled), cup black beans, 11 Triscuits Thin Crisps; 500 ml water.
Snack: Small fruit ice lolly, 4 Safeway ginger snaps; 500 ml water.
Extra Drinks: 500 ml water.

Total kcals: 1573 (plus free veggies)

Exercise: Nothing structured--1 hours yard work.

**Nature's Path Organic Buttermilk Pancake Mix
Per serving:
  • 130 kcals
  • 0.5 g fat
  • 8 g protein
  • 3 g fibre

Bah, see what happens when I'm not the one who starts the new thread--I completely forget about it! Anyway, here's what I had posted (accidentally) on last week's thread for today:

Minor moment of strength for today--I skipped work (we'll call it a mental health day ), and for lunch, I was so ready to just have a bowl of cereal (nothing healthy, of course--would have been frosted cheerios or lucky charms or something). Instead, I stood my ground and made a salad. Yay! For once, the laziness did not win out

So here's today for me (dinner's already planned):
plain cheerios w/skim milk, splenda, and a bit of honey
Special K bar
salad (lettuce, fat-free shredded cheddar cheese, ground turkey cooked w/taco seasoning, salsa, and a little fat-free sour cream)
2 turkey burgers w/cheese on whole wheat buns

Total: 1370 calories, though I'm sure I'll find something to make as a side to go with the burgers, so it will be a bit higher.

Ack! I can't find my car registration. Not that this has anything to do with what I ate today, though, which is...

Breakfast
Breakfast burrito (LF, low-carb tortilla shell, 1/2 cup Egg Beaters, onion and green peppers stir fried in 1 tsp olive oil, dollop of salsa, 1 LF Pepper Jack cheese slice)

Lunch
5 oz barbecue chicken breast with Simply Grillin' veggies (leftovers)
Hershey chocolate bar (craaaaaving!)

Snack
Orange
Yoplait Whips, key lime pie (yum!)

Dinner
Healthy Choice grilled chicken baja

Exercise: 1/2 hour on exercise bike (I'm getting better!)
What I watched on Tivo: A Biggest Loser episode from a few weeks ago

Calories: About 1432-ish according to FitDay (230 of which were chocolate!)

Don't be too hard on yourself for posting in the other thread, jillybean, I posted there myself before it dawned on me to start another thread. I went back and edited my post, which must've been about the same time you were posting.

That's a real achievement in making the salad. I wish I were so disciplined: I couldn't be bothered to do some veggies this evening, so guess what? I didn't.

Great job on the bike, rabidstoat! Keep it up! Good luck with finding your car registration.

Mon 24/10:

Breakfast: 1 cup Optimum Slim cereal, cup 0% milk; 500 ml coffee with 2 tblsp. half & half.
Snack: Cherry Fruit to Go bar. (And I still have another two left!)
Lunch: 3 sushi maki rolls, salad (red cabbage, carrot, cucumber, radish, tomato); 1 l water.
Snack: 4 oz apple; 500 ml water.
Dinner: 5 oz chicken breast (grilled), packet microwave rice; 1 l water.
Snack: Cocoa made with 2 tsp. cocoa, 1 cup 0% milk, 2 tblsp. half & half.

Total kcals: 1294 (plus free veggies) Hmm... is that all?

Exercise: 30 minute bike ride.

I've been naughty too, SAPF.

I like the too, Denise, but I think the Hallowe'en and are a bit scary looking! I'm cheering you on all the way in your LMT.

Glad you got your reg. sorted, rabidstoat. Living large at the takeaway places today, huh? Looks as though you made some good choices there.

Hubby's away for a few days and I got my knickers in a knot over a foot-in-the-door salesman. I have no idea what possessed me to answer the door in the first place. I self-medicated my stress with alcohol which totally buggered up my day. I'm feeling pretty miserable right now.

I'm not even going to detail my eats. Suffice to say, they were pretty okay until this evening when I've munched non-stop on roast ham and LC party cubes with Triscuit Thin Crisps, washed down with an OBSCENE amount of wine and beer. Bleah! I did drink 3 litres of water today though, and I managed a fifteen minute bike ride--not enough exercise, and considering it was to the liquor store, no exercise would have been a lot better for me.

Had a really rough day yesterday (involving a little yelling and a lot of crying with Jeff), but I did NOT stray from my normal eating plan (except my stir-fry didn't turn out too well, so I had a Special K bar after dinner since I didn't eat it all). NO emotional eating

Still quite emotional because of yesterday, I'm sticking to my plan for today as well. Here's today's plan:
  • Special K bar
  • instant oatmeal
  • yogurt
  • salad (lettuce, ground turkey cooked in taco seasoning, fat-free shredded cheddar, salsa, and fat-free sour cream)
  • Smartfood popcorn
  • 2 low-fat hotdogs on 2 wheat hot dog buns w/some sort of pasta side dish
Total: Should be around 1300 calories (not sure about the aforementioned pasta side dish with dinner yet, but the rest only comes to under 1100). I may add an apple to the mix before dinner if I'm hungry

EDITED TO ADD: 20 minutes on the elliptical at the gym this morning (cut it off early because I had to get to work early--lots to do!).

I got out of the habit of logging my food for a while. Not that I was eating off-plan, really. Just didn't bother. I've actually lost five pounds the last few weeks, so I must be doing something right. But I miss the accountability of the buddy thread, so here I am again.

TUESDAY

Breakfast:
walnuts (pre-commute)
cottage cheese

Lunch:
roast turkey slices
carrots
green beans
greens

Afternoon snack to keep the Beast at bay:
apple
chocolate skim milk

Dinner:
cincinnatti chili over spaghetti w/sour cream

Snacks throughout the day:
pickled herring


Drinks:
diet soda
coffee w/creamer
water

Calories:
about 1700

Exercise:
not much. some stairs at work, but it was too wet to walk outside.

Okay, I admit it--I caved to the emotional stress. I had a fun-size Butterfinger crisp bar and a Reese's peanut butter cup I skipped the yogurt, so my calories for the day should still only be about 1400. Not bad for an emotional splurge

Ugh. Starting this vacation, unprepared, with cleaning up after cat damage, then working half a day, then driving 8 hours, was a bad idea. I'm super-stressed.

But anyway. I managed to eat some during the day, and my Mommy saved me leftovers for dinner.

Breakfast
Fruit and yogurt parfait from McDonald's (my fall-back 'in a rush and on the road' breakfast)

Lunch
Leftover shrimp creole over brown rice

Snack
3/4 ounces of cheddar cheese

Dinner
Baked fish, breaded in bread crumbs and herbs and stuff
1 cup rice a roni of some sort
Some green beans

No exericse. Way too busy.

Calories: About 1200. Still low, but I'm so frazzled.

Good to have you back, Synger! Congrats on the loss!

I stayed within my kcal allowance (only just), but had no dairy, fruit, veggies, or whole grains, so it wasn't what you might call good for me. I ate nothing all day and then made a chicken & coconut curry for dinner. Oh, and I finished off the wine left from yesterday. Total kcals: 1589 with 3 litres water and no exercise.
