Well, I have traffic court today for a ticket I got in back in January, so I'm a little nervous and trying my hardest not to munch while I wait to go up there. I've gone thru 3 bottles of water this morning instead :D
I had a great weekend, total I went over about 200 calories for the entire weekend, which is good for me. My weigh in this morning said 228, which means I'm off my 2 week plateau. Yay!

Jill- Great job this weekend with all the temptation

Beth - It may be a long way to go, but it's worth it. You'll hit 1der land soon, Gratz again!

SaPF - How's the diet change?

Today's Food Journal
Breakfast - 1 Order of Mini-Chiks from Chik-FilA (only 270 calories total)
Snack - 1 Light Strawberry Yogurt
Lunch - 1 Large Salad w/ Light Ranch Dressing
Snack #2 - 1 Small Pineapple Shake from DQ :o
Dinner Planned - Shrimp Stir Fry

Good Luck this week!!!

Hi everyone!!! Did ya miss me?

I'm sure you can guess where I have been... :moo: :ink: :jeno: :burger: :chockiss: :corn: :hun: :yikes:

Monday was good, Tuesday was that Bunko fiasco, Wednesday was OK, I went 4 points over even though I didn't have any flex to use. Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday OLD Sandi was back in full force. :dunno: It all started with a Milky Way that I thought I could handle. I thought wrong!!!

Even today started off bad with a stop at Dunkin donuts for breakfast. But I have written everything down and I am going to try to recover...starting now. I went and got a 4 point McDonalds salad for lunch.

Anyway...I'm back!!!

I am going to be a total wimp and skip weigh in tonight.

Maybe weigh in would be good Sandi. That way you know where you stand and have no excuse to go off plan. I know when I say I'm not going to weigh that it gives me and excuse to eat a little extra thinking it won't show up on the next weigh in. Plus just keeping the same habits is a good idea. It will keep you in check. Sorry to here you struggeled so much this weekend. Good to see you right back at it though. You can do this you already showed us the last few weeks that you can. So get back at it and do what you know you can.

Hi, Sandi! Don't be down on yourself! We all have those kinds of weeks. I find, though, that when I skip a weigh-in, it does more harm than good. I tell myself that "I'll be OP this week and I'll weigh-in next week so I'll be sure to see a loss." But, then next week comes, I've done no better, and I skip weigh-in again. Every person is different, and only you know if you should skip or not, but I just thought I should share!

I haven't been posting my food journal, because it was making me be obsessive about food--I was going to the "bad place" mentally. I'm on WW now and I keep a written point tally, but am not writing down what I eat. Any-hoo, I still enjoy reading what y'all are eating!

Warning - I have a headache and am in a pissy mood. :barf: Those of you who have behaved are receiving a cyber pat on the back and those who haven't are receiving a swift kick in the butt (and should feel grateful its merely a cyber one!) Let's ALL be :angel: tomorrow!

I didn't count points today because I have no idea how many I consumed although I figure I stayed within what's allowed. :shrug:

Breakfast was a bust because I woke up very late and could only manage 1/2c of orange juice. Arrived at work just in time for a meeting (yes, I'm a committee person). Coffee, donuts, muffins and bagels were offered. I took coffee with milk.

Realized I left my lunch on the kitchen counter at home :mad: just before entering the next meeting (where lunch was provided). Had some salad and about a tbsp. of the only salad dressing offered (was orange and tasted like french, but I have no idea as to ingredients). Also had a little bit of the pasta salad because it was neither creamy or too oily. All the sandwiches were those tiny triangle cut ones and I had one triangle with egg, one with ham and one with tuna (so I guess that adds up to 3/4 of a whole sandwich).

Dinner time arrived and I knew I'd be at the office late because of all the lost time due to the meetings. Rode the elevator to the concourse and bought a low-fat yogurt, two bananas and a tomato from the market (that was dinner).

Around 9pm I was starving and when one of the students offered to go to "Timmys" for coffee I gave him money and asked him to bring me a garden vegetable soup and whole wheat mini-bun.

So that's my eats. As for beverages I drank so many firm supplied bottles of Perrier and soda water I doubt there'll be raises next year because of the expense! (Lost count, but probably at least 6-8 cans/bottles).

Exercise = pathetic. Made sure the dog was walked long enough to do her business (and was nearly late for my meeting because of it). Just clearing up at the office now and getting ready to go home (yes, it IS after midnight) :rolleyes:

So, while I wasn't out of control by any means today, I didn't feel in control like I have been. I like to organize and plan my meals and get all my exercise in. I look forward to that opportunity tomorrow (as does the dog and my stomach!) :D

Jill - sounds like you made the best of a difficult situation.......might not be the way that you like to do it, but I think we should award you a cyber pat for staying on track through those obstacles....

Sandi.....I am really glad you are back. We need you with us, girl! And I do think you should get on the scales. It means you will understand what you're dealing with (no more denial), and also you will learn about how it effects your body to go off plan for a few days. I am saying that, because it has helped me - when I feel tempted to stray too far from the right road, I think about how I am going to feel after that deviation, and knowing concretely what the scales are likely to say, helps me to visualise that.

Peachgirl - how did it go in traffic court? Hope you are OK.

So Monday was good, busy day for me. I am really liking this WW no-count/core plan (mind you, I do keep calling it no-point....shome mistake, shorely??!!), it suits me.

Porridge, skimmed milk, tea
Couscous, lots of green/veggie salad, noodle salad
Apple
Baked potato and roast turkey, pear
Orange
Strawberries, raspberries, banana

Court went okay, I had to pay a $100 fine + court costs, but it wasn't near as bad as I was afraid, this was my first traffic ticket ever...I was scared out of my gourd.

Sandy - I'm so glad you're back, we all missed you. Get back on the wagon now, and don't let a bad week turn into a bad month.

Today's Food -
Breakfast - about 7 graham cracker sticks
Snack - Nature Valley Peanut Butter Granola Bar

Glad the court thing wasn't too traumatic, PeachGirl, although I can't believe a woman old enough to be married has never had a traffic ticket before (I think I had 10 before I reached 20!) How nice that you and your hubby can challenge each other (hey, does that mean PeachGirl and her hubby are a dieting "Pear")? :D

I'm not going into the office until 5pm tonight, so I got to sleep in and took doggie for a long walk on the trails (1-1/2hrs.) Had a reasonable lunch and am brownbagging it to the office for dinner tonight!

Breakfast
3 - 1c Kashi Go Lean Cereal
1 - 1/2c 1% milk

Lunch
0 - spinach salad
1 - President's Choice 80% reduced fat/calorie ranch dressing

Dinner (packed and ready to go)
0 - spinach salad
0 - sliced mushrooms
0 - sliced tomato
1 - salad dressing (same as above)
3 - grilled chicken breast with salsa

Evening snacks (working until midnight)
2 - medium banana
1 - Silhouette mousse yogurt (vanilla)
1 - 1% milk put in 2 large teas
22 points

Beverages: so far I've had one large mug of tea and 2 500ml bottles of water. At work I'll have at least a couple of cans of soda water and a couple of small bottles of Perrier, as well as at least one caffeine-free cup of tea and a regular tea with milk.

So there - I don't usually like to enter my eats until they've been eaten and its the end of the day, but now its there I know there's no option to change things up (in other words, NO additions). :cool:

Good luck for the rest of the day, everyone! Let's see all those journals!! :)

Good job, Sandi!

Artist, what are "courgette flowers, ryvita, and quark?" I thought a quark was a subatomic particle, but what do I know?? :)

Okay, couldn't wait for the answers so I looked it up on the internet. Courgette flowers are flowers from the zucchini plant, ryvita has been the UK's #1 crispbread since 1925 (hey, that's what their website said), and quark is a kind of soft cheese described as cottage cheese without the curds and is unheard of in the US.

I wonder if quark is available in Canada. Any of my neighbors to the north know?

Mmmmm, Ryvita - always a big favourite with me. As for quark, we have it here, but I'd rather have cream cheese. Personally I don't do zuchinni leaves either, but I love the diversity and variety we're seeing here. :)

Mmmmm, Lean Cuisine roasted veggie pizza (not quite as good as the spinach and mushroom, but a nice substitute when you're craving a wee pizza pie) - so there! SAPF :p

artist
05-18-2005, 03:59 AM
Sheila - now that's what I like, people who answer their own difficult questions! Quark is great - was originally invented in Germany, I believe - I use it a lot as a creamcheese substitute, to make dips/spreads etc. Its very low fat/low calorie. As to the zucchini flowers (I normally translate myself into American for you guys - that one slipped through!), not an ingredient I usually cook with (well, let's be honest I don't usually cook......not an ingredient the ex-chef highly-talented-in-the-kitchen BF usually cooks with....), but I took a new colleague out to lunch in a fancy-schsmansy new bar/restaurant, and they came with my spaghetti!

Sandi - OK. Tell us your secret. I, like my friends here, could not imagine getting back on track mid-way through the day like that. I am seriously impressed! (And seriously happy to see you back here!)

I'm doing really well this week too, which is usually when my body decides to stay the same on the scale or worse...

Yesterday, I was so busy, I only ate 19 points out of my 28, which never happens. I started making a scrapbook for my son and I do it for about an hour each night after dinner. It keeps me from snacking because if I eat, it could get on the page. I'm actually having a great time, of course each page takes about an hour, so I could be finished with this in a few years, but I'm having fun.

Anyway, here's my food from yesterday, I little too much processed food for me, but it's easy to work with.

5/18
2 - coffee
1 - egg whites
3 - ww muffin
5 - ww salisbury steak
1 - 2 pcs chocolate
5 - LC salmon w/veggies
2 - ff chocolate pudding

Have a great day everyone!

Did a bad thing (again). I 'forgot' to eat breakfast. I started out this morning realizing that I only had enough milk for 1 bowl of cereal and that it would go to my daughter. Then realized I didn't have the time nor the energy to actually cook a breakfast. Then I thought I would just grab some yogurt on the way out an eat that at work but forgot to grab it on the way out. By the time I got to work I got busy and looked up and wow, its 2pm and I haven't eaten yet - oops! :nono: Anyway, on with the day:

Sandi- YAHOO! The movies is *always* like a trap for me. You are sooo awesome. I'm way more proud of you than necessary! :lol: :lol:

And Howie, you too. That is fantastic. I was babysitting last night (usually a complete eat-fest... why do kids eat so much garbage?) and the kids had pizza. There were 2 pieces *screaming* my name. But, when one of the kids wanted more pizza, I QUICKLY pawned them off. :)

Good job, everyone. Let's keep this up all weekend. :)

Ok, here's yesterday's food... I successfully fended off a huge urge to go get a Tuna melt pannini for lunch (it still is talking to me). But I just kept chanting "no" to myself and had a grilled chicken salad!

5/19

1 - egg whites
3 - ww muffin
7 - grilled chicken salad
1 - dressing
1 - 2 pcs chocolate
3 - tuna
2 - lite mayo

24 points (under by 4 pts)

I also, made an effort to eat less processed foods after Wednesday. While I know the frozen foods are not that great for me, I don't have the salt problems that some people have and it's still better than McDonalds or being 27 lbs heavier! I use them when I need to and don't when I have other options.

Have a great day eveyone!

diet pepsi to drink, maybe 3 cans
48 oz water

small piece of p#@!$ cake


Then we did shots. :( Not to mention a novelty sucker. *ahem*

Shots:

2 of these:

Hot Sex + Chambord = the Aimee Shot, Part Deux

2 of these:

Vanillacuddy's + cranberry juice = cherry cheesecakes

2 of these:

butterscotch schnapps + Kahlua + whipped cream on top = :censored: Must do w/no hands!!! ;)


In other news, I did so well @ bartending that I got invited to another bachelorette for tomorrow night!!!

But I am going to eat before I leave for that one. ;) It's a poker party, so maybe I will bring my own carrots, peppers & dip.

Oh & I also had some fruit. Grapes, blueberries & strawberries.

On my not having enough cals for a booze-up:
Hey you don't see that stopping me. :lol: :p
It usually wouldn't have stopped me either. I'm trying really hard to control the emotional eating and drinking that has been my way for as long as I can remember. It's a tough habit to break though....

The reason I really wanted to drink was because I was upset. It's four years ago this weekend that my dad died (and just over two since my mam followed him) and I miss them so much. :cry:

Mam was such a tiny lady, and I know both she and Dad worried a lot about the effect my being fat would have on my health; diabetes, heart disease, high BP, and cancer all run rampant through my family. Thinking about that, it seemed wrong of me to use them as an excuse to break my diet. So I lit some candles and incense and got my comfort by way of calorie-free cuddles from hubby instead. :love:

So, tonight I'm going to have that bottle of wine and drink to them both. :cheers: More than a third of my intake from alcohol may not be the most healthy thing, but at least I'll be on plan calorie-wise. So far, I've only used 169 of my 1600. At this rate I'll be able to have two bottles! :joker:

Today was much better. I brought my own snacks & only had one drink.
Also went to the zoo & it's tradition to get an ice cream cone. BUT TODAY I JUST HAD A PICKLE!! :dance:
Good show! I can't say I've ever thought of pickles and ice cream as being interchangeable! :lol:

Ok, I lost another pound this week.

Yes, I'm happy, but I'm getting frustrated... since I hurt my knee in April I haven't been able to really work out. I do the upper body cardio, my arms are begining to have real definition, but I can barely do 20 mins and it burns 12 calories!! At this point, I'm just not getting anywhere. My PT says 4-6 weeks, no I don't want to make it worse or have to have surgery.

I'm just sad and I don't want to turn it into a reason to eat, because I do that really well! Sorry to vent, I'm ok really.

Have a good night everyone! :)

Congrats to everyone who's on track and doing well!

(((Ali))) I'm sorry about your Mam and Dad and hope you concentrated on your fond memories while having a "drinkie" in their honour rather than the sadness of losing and missing them. I do understand - it would have been my younger sister's birthday today and its difficult not to think about all she could have been and done. You're right though, knowing that your parents worried about how your weight could affect your health was all the more reason not to over-indulge because of emotional issues (hope you got lots of nice hubby hugs) :)

Beth Please try not to get so frustrated. You're losing weight even though you can't exercise as much as you'd wish. Try to bide your time while you heal and be happy with your losses - don't rush anything, after all, you can make up for lost time when you're fully healthy. :yes:

Apryl Not going to come down on you for enjoying your planned Prom Pig-out :p Reading your other posts on the subject have convinced me you were in control in that you didn't take advantage of the event to go crazy over the whole weekend. Going 1,000 calories over is one thing, but knowing in the past it could have been an excuse to go over 10,000 and turn it into "Prom Week" is another. You practised restraint, were conscious of your choices, came here to be accountable about it, and are back on plan as of last night - good for you!!

Yesterday was MY planned treat night, so I resorted to using some flex points :D

I sort of missed breakfast because we slept in, lazed around in bed for a long time and didn't get up until almost lunchtime! :^: So I had a brunch of a whole wheat pita stuffed with veggies (lettuce, tomato, onions, green olives, hot peppers, mushrooms, green peppers), a little feta cheese, diced chicken and salsa). Late in the afternoon we went to Tim Horton's for coffee and I had a small bowl of chili. We went to friend's for a holiday bbq (and fireworks) and there I had bbq pork chop, baked potato (with a little butter) and fresh veggies and dip (SAPF's pink dip). As the evening progressed I had some blue corn tortilla chips (I doubt highly they were baked) with more pink dip.

Beverage-wise I had a few glasses of spring water, a couple of mugs of tea, a Timmy's coffee (with cream), a 2lt bottle of diet grapefuit soda (one of which glasses had 1oz of Russian vodka in it) and two glasses of white wine.

I figure my points to be around....

7 - Pita
5 - Chili
2 - Coffee (with cream)
5 - Pork chop
5 - Potato (with butter)
0 - fresh veggies
5 - Tortillas
2 - Pink dip
2 - Vodka
4 - White wine (2 @ 2 points each)
37 points (used 15 flex points)
