Default Weekly Journal Buddy Thread (Dec. 5-11)

Here I am, early bird starting the new thread! I ate a lot over the weekend bcause I ate out. Not that that's an excuse--I should still practice better portion control when out, but as long as I continue losing, I'll just keep counting those calories!

Today:
  • yogurt
  • oatmeal
  • Special K bar
  • small can of fruit cocktail packed in pear juice
  • skinless chicken breast marinated (marinade: worcestershire sauce, ketchup, honey, and mustard) cut up into small pices and mixed with instant "beef" lo mein (no actual beef to be found )

That is SO good! I can't seem to keep my calories below 2000 on any given weekend day, and I often even end up going MUCH higher (I believe I was at about 3200 on one day this weekend )

I do know what you mean - I tried extra hard this weekend to be good. We normally eat out on the weekends which pushes me into a much higher bracket but this weekend soups and salads kept me in check.

Default Hello!

Hey there, everybody! I'm going to give this thread a try, at least for my first week back on plan. If my challenges last year are any predictor of what I have to expect this time around, I'm not sure to what degree I'll need accountability on my eats going forward. Daily exercise was my thing, alas.

But I'm jumping back on the bandwagon with both feet and can use all the help I can, so here goes for now! Here are the planned eats for today:

AM: Weight Control Oatmeal and a protein drink, with 20 oz. water (DONE!)
MID AM: 20 oz. water (DONE!)
LUNCH: 3/4 cup brown rice (no salt), 3 oz. albacore tuna (love those packets!), and 2 cups of steamed zucchini and summer squash (no salt, no fat), 40 oz. water (DONE!)
MID PM: 1 Light n' Fit nonfat yogurt and a protein drink, with 20 oz. water
DINNER: 5 oz. tilapia sauteed w/tiny bit of olive oil and no salt, 1/2 cup brown rice (same as above), 1 1/2 cups steamed spinach, and 30 oz. water

I should end up with around 1264 calories, 42% Protein / 45% carbs / 15% fat; and at least 130 oz. water. Also: sodium in line, but fiber (at just 20 grams) not quite there. Tomorrow's another day -- I'll make sure to get in some All Bran Extra Fiber!

I'll update later to confirm that I stayed on plan.

Thanks you guys!

Whoa, unexpected lunch out! I applied for a secret shopper evaluation not really expecting to win it, and I did, so we had lunch at a place called Artie's--SO good! That's gonna bump me up to around 2000 calories for the day--not horribly bad. I ended up having Tex Mex egg roll appetizer, apple pie w/vanilla ice cream dessert, and an AMAZING salad of fresh greens, red cabbage, grilled chicken, red grapes, mango, and a light buttermilk Asian lime vinaigrette dressing. I wasn't sure I'd like it since it was such a unique array of flavors combined, but it was AWESOME! I also passed on the bread and butter since I knew I was already over in calories I also bumped the oatmeal and Special K bar off my menu for the day, but it was well worth the trade off!

Back to update:

MID PM: 1 Light n' Fit nonfat yogurt and a protein drink, with 20 oz. water (DIDN'T HAVE THIS. I just had the 20 oz. water)
DINNER: 5 oz. tilapia sauteed w/tiny bit of olive oil and no salt, 1/2 cup brown rice (same as above), 1 1/2 cups steamed spinach, and 30 oz. water (This was altered slightly: I ended up having the tilapia, the brown rice, and instead of the spinach, I had a whole fresh tomato w/low fat balsamic vinaigrette, fresh mint and garlic, and a teaspoon of low fat feta. I also had 2 small glasses of red wine and 30 oz. water.)

I ended up with 1281 calories, 17% fat. Not a bad first day! Off now to drink one final glass of water....

Sarah, how do you like the weight control oatmeal? I tried it because I like having more protein and less sugar, but it teasted lumpy and just awful to me. I don't know if I got a bad batch, or what. I'm used to the flavored instant oatmeals.

Tuesday
Breakfast: Krispy Kreme glazed donut, Light and Fit yogurt
Snack: 1.25 oz peanuts
Lunch: Healthy Choice mesquite barbecue chicken
Snack: Hershey chocolate bar and an orange
Dinner: Sesame chicken and veggies over white rice

Exercise: 60 minutes cycling, 25 minutes weight lifting

So, weird day today. My hormones are all messed up, I swear, trying to get my cycles regular again. But looking at it, I'm amused how I paired 'healthy' with 'junk food' -- healthy yogurt and unhealthy donut, healthy orange and unhealthy chocolate bar. Heh. It's probably good, I guess I'm learning to compromise when I get my cravings.
