WOW, September 19 already! Less than a month till I move!!!! :D

I won't go into what I ate on my business trip or over this past weekend--just know that it was not horrible, yet not wonderful, and now I've got a few pounds of water weight to lose to get back to where I should be. Here's today's eats:

pineapple chunks
peaches n' cream instant oatmeal (reduced-sugar, made with water)
banana bread instant oatmeal (Weight Control, made with water)
lowfat chocolate milk
Ruby Tuesday Asian steamed dumplings w/thai peanut sauce
9 servings plain water, 4 servings Diet Coke
total: about 1600 calories
exercise: 30 minutes on the elliptical at the gym between jobs, 3.5 hours of waitressing at night

Sunday was frustrating. I wasn't feeling good. Not bad, really, either. I think I have the beginnings of an ear infection. All day I had that semi-vertigo, spacy feeling like my balance wasn't quite...there... I could function, but just wasn't myself, you know? On top of that, it's ToM, and I wanted something SWEET!! I ate a caramel-covered marshmallow from my husband's stash, and a Tastykake butterscotch krimpet (cupcake thing)... and I don't even LIKE those things. *sighs* (marshmallows are only redeemed when they are toasted over a campfire and married to chocolate and graham crackers... or in Peeps, which are a completely different matter) Then later, I had a big bowl of ice cream with caramel. (Can you tell DH is a caramel guy? These are all his treats, and I am usually not even interested. )

Fortunately or not, it was my "free" day, where I try not to obsess over what I eat. I was still within my calorie range for a free day. But that doesn't give me license to eat CRAP, either.

But today I'm back on the wagon, with my cottage cheese and fruit breakfast, and looking foward to a bike ride this evening.

SUNDAY


Breakfast:
cheese bread, toasted, with butter

Synger - Sunday is usually my 'free' day when I don't stress over going to 1800 cals or so. However, lately I think I just use it as an excuse to pick all day. I was reasonably good yesterday, but didn't update the software las night... but thinking it might end up being closer to 2000. I'm thinking I need to move my free day to another day because weekends are usually my downfall.

Breakfast
- egg substitute, egg whites, cheese blend, onions
- nectarine

Morning snack
- multi-grain toast with apricot jam

Lunch
- salad (mixed greens, tomato, pepper, cucumber) with FF Red Wine dressing
- peach

Afternoon Snack
- grapes, dried cherries

Late-afternoon Snack (hey it was alcohol or snacks...)
- baked tortillas, cheese blend, salsa

Dinner
- BBQ pork souvlaki
- salad (mixed greens, tomato, pepper, cucumber) with FF sun-dried tomato dressing

Evening snack
- peach, nectarine

Total calories: will update tonight when I get home - 1920!

Exercise: day off for treadmill, 30 mins light swim

I love that warning too, Jill! :lol:

My hubby's a real sweetie monster, but like you, Synger, it doesn't usually tempt me. There are some days though, usually just before TOM, that I can welly into his chocolate Smarties. Stinkin' hormones! :mad:

I did much better yesterday after Saturday's drink-and-scoff-everything-in-sight (mis)adventure. The last few weeks of unstructured mayhem has knocked me way out of kilter, and I'll be extremely fortunate if tomorrow's WI is favourable. Still, MIL and FIL are returning home in the next few days, and I have Unruly SIL well and truly installed in her own place now! :p So, now I have no excuse not to concentrate on myself again. :)

Sun 18/09:

Breakfast: Shake (5 oz banana, crushed ice, vanilla extract, cup 2% plain yogurt).
Lunch: Cheese* & Marmite toastie (2 oz whole-grain bread, 3 oz gouda, 1 oz butter), pile of raw veggies (broccoli, carrot, cauli, celery, radish, tomato).
Dinner: 500 ml Campbell's Chunky soup (Chicken/Pasta), 8 Wheatine crackers.
Snacks: 2 oz seedless raisins, oz almonds.
Drinks: 1 litre coffee, 2 litres water

Total kcals: 1533 (plus free veggies)

Exercise: 1.71 mile walk.

*Much nicer (and cheaper in kcals) with Laughing Cow Light triangles, but still delicious. :T

I know what you mean about the business trips. It's hard to stay on plan when you are on the road. I gained 9 lbs while traveling last week. Since I have been back home 3 lbs a day has come off so I know it was mostly water. I am still up 3 lbs but by Fridays weigh in that should be gone and maybe some more.

Congrats on the 4 pointer, Dee! :high:

Welcome back, Jilly! Glad you can claim the weekend as a victory. :)

Claire: I need some of your fruit/veg cravings instead of the meat and cheese ones I have.

I ate too much today (and had too little water), and I can feel it. :( I was doing fine until this evening when I got a real bout of the munchies. Everything I've listed under snacks was eaten after 20:00! I don't know what was wrong--I just couldn't feel satisfied. I've been skipping my morning and afternoon snacks lately, and I'm wondering if that is leading to over-indulgence at night.

Tues 20/09:

Breakfast: 1 cup Optimum Slim cereal, cup 0% milk, 1 oz seedless raisins.
Lunch: 3 sushi maki rolls, raw veggies (cabbage, celery, radishes, tomato).
Dinner: 500 ml split pea soup, 4 Lesley Stower's raincoast crisps.
Snacks: 3 oz seedless grapes, 2 oz gouda, 3 sushi maki rolls, 4 oz lean sliced ham.
Drinks: 500 ml coffee, 1 litre water, 500 ml tomato juice.

I've been in a funk the last few days.
I think because things have been going really well, what with a spiffy new car, DH's part time job and he starts his final semester of school next week, I have a new second job and my exercise and eating habits are going strongly and consistantly in a healthy direction and my weight, and clothing size, are both doing down! But, I've been looking around and thinking to myself lately, "OK, what's going to happen and put a halt to all the good stuff that is going on in my life?!?". I feel like we are *finally* getting our sh-t together after the last pretty harsh 7 years and I'm worried we're going to do something stupid to negate all the hard work we've put in and send us back to square one. It's my negative dialog causin' me trouble. I just need to get that new dialog going and keep us steered in the right direction but I'm strugglin!!!
Anyway, been stressin' the last few days, and I've been letting it affect my eating in a big way. Craving sugary and chocolatey stuff, trying to keep the damage down by making homemade low-fat stuff to munch on, not working to well though...
Eegads!!! I went over by 866 calories today!!!!!!

What, SAPF, no cheesies? (My lame attempt at guessing who you are at the "ze" site). :p

mmmmm.....meat and cheese. I'm tellin' ya, sometimes I think I could live the Atkins lifestyle, until I smell fresh bread, that is. You can pass some of those fruit and veggie cravings my way, please!

Why are you "doing this", Ali? Because you're not on a diet, remember? You've got a lifestyle that includes a bottle of wine every so often (otherwise, would life really be worth living?) ;)

Ahhh, Laura. Isn't it always the way? When you're going through those really hard times you have to spend all your time and energy just trying to keep everything together and then when things are finally going right THAT'S when you have some time to actually breathe and what do we do? Spend that precious time worrying about whether everything will fall apart again ~ Crazy isn't it? I guess its part of human nature, but try to relax and convince yourself that all the good stuff is here to stay. Savour your current life (rather than icky chocolate). :s:

I've been really good these past couple of days, getting back on track, exercising. I'm supposed to do the Race for the Cure on Sunday in Central Park, but the PT doesn't want me to start running yet. I had wanted to run this race last year, but I wasn't anywhere near ready, now when I look back at everything that I've done, yes I'm sad about not running, but I guess there's always next year.

PT e-mailed me last week when I was ready to go onstage in front of 3,000 people to give a 10 min presentation. He said just remember "Slow down to go fast!" It fits in so many places in my life, but also weight loss, if I had my choice, I would be done already, but slowly I'm making real changes... I just :love: that man!

Anyway, here's my food from yesterday...

2 - coffee
1 - egg whites
3 - Luna bar
5 - Zone bar

[QUOTE=Jillegal]Ummm....so, Beth, the PT is e-mailing you about non-gym related matters? Is there more going on between you two that we should know about?? :p ;) /QUOTE]

Wow good catch Jill. Well, we've become friends....but it is getting a little interesting, actually I think I'm getting in over my head, but we'll see. If nothing else, he's VERY motivating for me, he knows that I'm working on myself. And he works downstairs at the company gym when he's not PT-ing, I'm going to start working out there too, his idea.

My food's pretty much the same, which is a good thing for me...

Again, I did fine until evening struck. Tonight it was a bottle of wine that was my downfall as far as sticking to my kcal limit. :rollpin: I really need to give my head a shake. Why am I doing this?

DishyFishy Watching your post over the last week or so I have been thinking that maybe it is getting tough because you are so close to Onederland. I get weird sometimes when I reach a milestone of success, especially when it comes ot weight loss. What do you think?

Thanks to all of you for your support on the "Serious Illness" thread. I am SLOWLY getting back on track. Last two days, I did my water :cheer: :cheer: Today I am hoping to add in exercise. Food has been not great but not horrible (except for the apple cobbler I ate in a few hours time) Just a little more carbs than usual and Meal Skipping!!!!!! Not a good move for me :?:

Good to see your back Jillegal :)

Denise and Jilly, thanks for your input.

Yes, my negativity stems from failing to meet the target I set myself. You're right, Jilly, this isn't a diet that I'm on or off at any given moment, and I need to be reminded of that. I've been feeling really low lately, and it always manifests itself in my being mean to myself. I lose sight of the fact that as well as being my worst critic, I have the potential be my own best friend.

Thursday I was called to SIL's house at short notice so I had nothing from breakfast until 22:00. I was ravenous, hence the fast food for dinner.

Thurs 22/09:

Breakfast: 1 cup Optimum Slim cereal, cup 0% milk, 6 oz nectarine.
Dinner: A & W Mama burger, regular fries.
Drinks: 500 ml coffee, 2 litres water, 500 ml diet root beer, bottle of beer.

Total kcals: 1278

Exercise: None.

Fri 23/09:

Breakfast: 1 cup Optimum Slim cereal, cup 0% milk, 1 oz seedless raisins.
Lunch: 8 oz lean roast ham, 1 oz gouda.
Dinner: 1 cup cooked pasta with sauce ( oz gouda, cup peas, 2 oz tuna, cup tomato juice).
Snacks: 4 Safeway ginger snaps, 1 cup mandarins in juice.
Drinks: 500 ml coffee, 1 litre water, 500 ml green tea.

Total kcals: 1504

Exercise: 4 miles WATP
