Here's the new thread!

Today:
B - Kellogg's smart start w/skim milk and strawberries
L - Lean Cuisine spinach and mushroom pizza
S - one corn tortilla and a swig of orange juice
D - mixed green salad w/fat free Italian dressing, 1.5 low-fat hot dogs w/ketchup and a little mustard (and buns), 1.5 ears of corn (.5 with some butter and salt), two bites of a piece of buttered egg bread

I think I did pretty good today, very little snacking since it wasn't a workout day. Good thing too, because I have friends coming to visit for the weekend and I'm taking an unofficial 4-day weekend to show them around, and I know I'll be eating crap!

L - Rest of bag of salad 240

The whole plan for the day was to go home and have a lean cuisine for dinner to stay within my calories until a friend wanted to meet for a drink and you can see how I did from there.

The last few days have been a blur to me. All I remember are the M&Ms. Lots and lots of M&Ms. Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday at work were one big mental breakdown for me. I've never seen so many things go wrong in one week. The worst was yesterday when I was asked to write a fateful letter to a vendor threatening to terminate our contract with them if they don't get their act together immediately. Uber-stressful for me, since I'm very non-confrontational. That's where the M&Ms came in.

This weekend is my Mom's retirement party, and I will have a hard time recovering from the damage I've already done. We are going out to eat tonight, so I will be looking at the salad selection for the most part, I've already had a veggie sub without mayo, and with some of the cheese taken off for lunch.

Luckily my mom has a treadmill at her house so I can redeem myself a little bit. I'm afraid to weigh in tomorrow, since it's not my usual scale. (Did I mention I'm out of town at my mom's house? Well, I did now :P) Wish me luck!

Betani, don't worry about the damage you've done, just think about the good you can do once this weekend is over! I'd suggest not even weighing in, especially since it is a different scale, and especially if you think it will upset you. Skip it and weigh in next week, and I'm sure you will be fine!

Today was a really crappy food day for me in general, but my first visiting friend is gone. The next shows up tomorrow afternoon, and I'm baking her a birthday cake so I know I will eat more crap!

Today:
B - homemade "breakfast burrito" -- one taco size corn tortilla, about one and a half eggs (I cooked three, two whole and one white only, and ate about half), some veggies (bell pepper, peas, corn), and salsa, glass of OJ
L - OMG, this is the crappiest lunch ever. One waffle cone with mint oreo ice cream and one and a half small clam cakes. It doesn't sound like much, but that waffle cone was HUGE and the clam cakes were GREASY!
S - slice of whole wheat bread, 2/3 of a giant can of Arizona green tea (I was sooooo thirsty!)
D - huge plate of broccoli (trying to make up for my earlier eating), small bowl of baked beans and low-fat hot dog slices, half a hot dog on bun with ketchup
S - glass of water with strawberry slices in it!

Now I really know I can never go back to eating like I used to. I used to be able to eat a whole big greasy lunch AND a three-scoop ice cream sundae with bananas. Now, a single-scoop waffle cone is enough that I felt totally stuffed afterwards. Somehow I'm not surprised that when I weighed in I hadn't lost at all. :p Maybe next week. The good news is that when I measured on Friday (before the bad eating :lol: ) my waist was down to 28.75 inches!

06-05-2005, 08:32 PM
Friday -
B - Regular oatmeal w/skim milk, splenda & cinnamon
L - Lean Cuisine Enchilada Suiza, 6 light chips and salsa
S - Grapes
D - Lean Pocket
S - Little bit of Milky Way Dark pieces and popcorn (@ the movies) & lots of alcohol at the bar afterwards :(

Saturday -
L - Mex Rest. 1/2 bean tostada, 1/2 bean burrito, Cheese Enchilada, SC and chips and salsa
D -PF Changs - 1/4 Orange peel chicken and white rice, 1 chicken lettuce wrap
S - lots of alcohol at the bar again :(

Sunday -
L - Brothers BBQ - links and fries ( ate about 1/8 of what they give you)
D - Taco Bell - spicy chicken burrito, Club Chalupa
S - Soft Taco Supreme


Another bad weekend as you can see. I have a feeling I'm going to continue to struggle until I go on vacation and get back.

Paperclippy-
Way to go on getting that waist so small. All your hard work is paying off!

Betani- OMG I know what you mean, M&Ms used to be my binge food. I would have my fiance go out at all hours of the night when I was really stressed and bring me home a 1lb PARTY sized bag of peanut M&Ms!!! Ugh and they would make me SO sick, I remember I wouldnt let him have a single one!! sigh. Just dust yourself off and consider it a hard lesson learned! It seems like you've already recommitted and getting a few work outs of the treadmills is a great idea!

food log:

breakfast
oatmeal
3 slices turkey bacon

snack
applesauce
string cheese

snack 2
south beach bar

dinner
quesadilla/tortilla chips

unfortunetly my fiance convinced me to have my one "cheat" meal on the first day of the week, so I have nothing to look forward to...but it was worth it!

Yesterday was my last day of having friends over, so back to eating healthy for me now!

Yesterday:
B -- Kellogg's smart start w/skim milk and strawberries
L -- Smokehouse burger from Johnny Rocket's (burger w/bacon and onion rings on it!) :o But I didn't eat the whole thing, and about 1/3 order of fries, plus a sprite
S -- diet soda, I guess this doesn't really count for much though. Diet soda sweetened with Splenda tastes nas-tay. :p
D -- sweet and sour tofu w/veggies and white rice, cooked at home so I know it was healthy.
S -- some chocolate caramel popcorn :o and a white chocolate popcorn truffle! :o :o :o

Anyway, we still have some cake and popcorn to eat, but I am going to divide it into individual servings to help prevent myself from eating too much. Also today I start a circuit training class, so I will be working out FIVE days a week instead of three (I've never done more than three before, it's kind of freaking me out).

Lunch= leftover pizza slice and a wedge of baby watermelon
Dinner= Fazoli's grilled chicken salad and 2 breadsticks :o
Snacks= mixed vegetables, GoLean Crunch cereal, and I stopped myself at 3 tortilla chips when I realized I'd eaten any.

Today I'm a bit off kilter. I go in for x-rays and a bone scan this afternoon, and I'm nervous out of my mind. Mainly because I have to go in by myself, and I'm a scardy cat when it comes to being alone. Breakfast has been as usual, but I don't know if I can force myself to eat any lunch. I keep thinking that I took my calcium when I wasn't supposed to. I'm sure I didn't, but I'm nervous enough to panic about anything. Boy, am I a wimp!

Ugh, today has been really weird. I keep going back and forth between feeling like I ate way too much and then like 30 minutes later I will be starving again. I have been eating at weird times all day and I just feel so blah about my food today! Since I ate at weird times, I don't think the usual B/L/D works for me, so I'll just list everything.

- one slice whole wheat toast with tub margarine and sugar-free jelly
- four or five small (homemade, I mean like really thin and small) buttermilk pancakes with Log Cabin Lite syrup, glass of skim milk
- half a peanut butter and apple sandwich one whole wheat bread
- about 4 oz salmon (baked), 3/4 C rice, three cheddar chive biscuits (homemade) with some tub margarine, and an arugula blend salad w/ff italian dressing
- one viactiv multivitamin chew (finally a vitamin I can take!)

I'm still going back and forth between hungry and stuffed (it's so weird, like one minute I feel like ugh, so full, and the next I'm hungry, and even if I don't eat anything, I start to feel stuffed after a while). Maybe I will have some more milk.

I had a bad day at work/school yesterday, so I ended up eating more than usual . . . BUT, I am proud of myself because around 4pm, when I was feeling really crappy and I was hungry, I managed to force myself to walk straight past the vending machine and over to Au Bon Pain, where instead of buying the brownie I so desparately wanted I got some yogurt instead. Phew! That was really tough. I heard my inner voice say "Man, today was rough, you deserve a brownie" but I squashed it!!

Anyway, here is yesterday's food intake:
B -- Kellogg's smart start w/skim milk and blueberries
(workout)
S -- Dannon fruit at the bottom yogurt (strawberry banana)
L -- Lean Cuisine ravioli bowl
S -- Flavored yogurt w/blueberries at the bottom and granola on top, from ABP
D -- Fried rice (a little oil, rice, peas, corn, tofu, egg) (I admit, I ate too much fried rice last night)
S -- Piece of sourdough bread, multivitamin chew

Man, I eat a lot of bread. I am such a bread addict. I would die if I ever tried to do Atkins! :rofl: Actually, I used to be a binge bread-eater -- I would take a loaf of wonderbread, sit down to watch TV, and eat the entire loaf. :o At least I'm improving!

AND 3 glasses of wine while i was cooking :dizzy: . had a gin amd tonic after dinner and decided that it was a fine idea to go out for ice cream so add one small lemon cheesecake ice cream to that list (4 oz). was barely under on water goal- had the last few gulps on the way to work today.

today:

breakfast-
16 oz coffee with splash 1/2 & 1/2
hummus with leftover flatbread

1 c mixed green salad w broc, carrot, cabbage, and annie's natural dressing

Oh man, I'm behind. Let's see if I can remember what I ate the past couple days.

Friday:
B - Kellogg's smart start w/skim milk and blueberries
(workout)
S - Dannon fruit at the bottom yogurt
L - Lean Cuisine (I forget what kind)
S - I don't remember, but I bet I had a glass of milk and a slice of bread.
D - My bf's chili over elbow macaroni (ground turkey, bell pepper, onion, tomatoes, pasta sauce, BBQ sauce, ketchup, and who knows what else he puts in there)

I don't remember eating anything else Friday, but I might have had something.

Saturday:
B - blueberry buttermilk pancakes (I added 2 tbsp flaxseed meal to the batter) (I had about three 4-inch pancakes) with Log Cabin Lite syrup and a glass of milk
L - a few strawberries and a salad of tatsoi (we went to a farmer's market) with 1 tbsp homemade balsamic vinagrette
S - half a thing of pretzel stix from Auntie Anne's in the mall :o
S - more strawberries
D - delivery Chinese food (my one "eating out" meal of the week): some white rice, kung pao three delights (mostly carrots and celery, some chicken and beef), and chicken with snowpeas (heavy on the snow peas, easy on the chicken), 2 fortune cookies, and two steamed dumplings (I have no idea what sort of meat was in the filling). I actually ate way less than I normally do, so I was proud of myself, even though I know the food is bad for me. I only had one plateful and I really loaded up on the snow peas.

Today (so far):
B - Kellogg's smart start w/skim milk and blueberries
(workout)
L - leftover chinese food (less than one plateful, and I use salad plates for everyday eating)
S - slice of harvest multigrain bread and about a cup of cherries
D (planned) - baked salmon with green beans and potatoes, and another tatsoi salad

I'll probably have another slice of bread sometime today too. I am such a bread addict.

L - Lean Cuisine chicken and vegetables
S - Dannon fruit at the bottom yogurt w/flaxseed meal

S - cup of chai (1/2 C chai concentrate, 1/2 C skim milk), a bit under a cup of grapes, multivitamin chew (I list these b/c they are 20 cals)

I need to work harder on getting in my veggies -- I'm guessing I had about 4 servings yesterday (1 in the LC, 2 in the salad, and maybe 1 in the chili -- we make it with lots of veggies & beans). I probably had 3 servings of fruit (are fruit servings 1/2 C like vegetables?) and at least 3 servings of dairy (so hopefully I'm finally getting all my calcium in). I guess I need to cut back some of my grains and replace them with more fruits and veggies.

went WAY lazy on dinner last night-- stayed too late at work and went to the dreaded taco bell on the way home (i'll drive out of my way to go grab a 'quick' dinner there vs spending five minutes at home throwing mac'n'cheese, veggies and fake chik in the micro... what's up with that?) i am a sucker for marketing and i tried a crunchwrap (http://www.tacobell.com/). oh god. how do they cram so many calories in there??? AND it wasn't even good- i was just hungry, a bean burrito no onions add rice (my usual), and a diet doctor pepper. that adds up to 751 calories and 34 grams of fat!!! eee gads.

Try to get your calories up by adding a serving or two of fruit as a snack, and something more substantial for breakfast. You should be eating at least 1200 per day. :)

breakfast
tried to eat at Bob Evans, (even went on the website before hand to figure out what I could and couldnt have..) ordered an omlet with extra veggies, no cheese and made with egg beaters. The first time it came out it was just as I had ordered- except smothered in hollandaise sauce...I grimaced and said I would just spoon it off and the server said he would take it back, 20 minutes later the next omlet I received was just as I ordered except smothered in cheese?!? So I picked off the cheese I could and ate the mushrooms, most of the peppers and the little bit of cheese free egg I could find. Then I came home and actually had breakfast. garr.

1 whole wheat waffle
strawberries
egg whites

lunch
1 cup of artichoke tortellini (10 grams of protein!!)
1/2 cup of mushroom pasta sauce

snack
1/2 cup of raisin bran
1/2 cup of milk

Oh, Glory, you're the one who started me on the Superfoods LOL. I bought the book, after reading your post and LOVE it. I pretty much already eat and love all these foods, but was not consistent (since I really love pizza and Taco Bell too.)

so far today:

B: 1/2 Cup 2% cottage cheese and 1 cup rasberries

L: one slice left over veggie pizza, 1 cup carrot soup

Snack: Super salad (spinach, romaine, veggies) with 1 T olive oil
1/2 orange, shared with my 4 year old :)

So far it adds up to about 850 calories, and dinner is still ahead.

eta: Dinner: tiny turkey sandwich on a roll, two bites chocolate bridal shower cake (OMG yum!), then came home and had 4 oz Tuna with nf mayo and pickle.

Total cals: 1330, or thereabouts.

Oh, that breakfast sounds great, Glory! I'm going to have to read about the Super foods now.

Yesterday wasn't a good calorie day once dinner came around. Breakfast and lunch were pretty good, though:

Midnight Snack= 1 oatmeal cookie

Breakfast= blueberry oatmeal w/ cinnamon, coffee w/ creamer

Lunch= "Must-go" Basically, I started with a can of low sodium albacore tuna, and added in all the fruits and veggies I had that were almost ready to be thrown out. Carrots, onion, turnip, green grapes, and apple, and a couple spoons of fat free mayo, and I crumbled a little bit of ramen noodles in it.

Dinner= (Here's where I fall apart) 4! slices of medium green pepper pizza, 4! Chips Ahoy peanut butter chocolate chip cookies

Night cap= glass of burgundy

Appx 1750 calories

I really did think it would be more calories than that. But Fitday says otherwise :)

yesterday i left 1/2 of my 'planned' lunch at home. dang! so no dr. kracker's yesterday-- and was i ever heartbroken when i figured that out. and my salad was i c k. i hadn't washed the lettuce very well so i just picked out the cukes, tomatos, and tuna and trashed the rest. i was naughty and hit the vending machine downstairs for 2 1 oz packets of cheetos. double dang. i stayed LATE again at work BUT instead of grabbing a 'quick' dinner out, i ran home (scarfed down 3 oz of leftover tuna) and started making a healthy dinner. whole wheat pasta w a 'sauce' of olive oil, capers, small handful of olives, fresh tomato, roasted tomato, roasted yellow pepper, and parm. mmm. i ate up a bowl, filled up a container for lunch (for today) and picked at the last remaining bits-- so i had like 1 1/2 bowls. had a coupla handfulls of animal crackers for dessert. made water goal for the day.

Starting over today...
Breakfast: egg beaters scrambled with butter
Lunch: Couldn't find anything that fit atkins so I had a crystal lite ice tea while I looked
Dinner: Tilipia cooked in butter, fresh brocolli, spinach salad with red onion and a tbspn ranch dressing. Ice tea. I sprinkled a little bread crumbs on the Tilipia when i was cooking (maybe a tablespoon over all of it) and I also had 2 tablespoons of rice pilaf.

Hey I am trying! I estimated on a normal day I was taking in over 130 carbs. Think I did better today. I walked a half mile on the tread mill last nite, plan on repeating that tonight.

Oh... and I plan to have a hardboiled egg, or a few deviled eggs later on
