I'm feeling a little :barf: today (sorry), so I don't really feel like eating breakfast. (Nothing serious, just that totm. I should be fine tomorrow.) I will try to drink some green tea later and maybe eat a graham wafer.

Lunch - Tuna sandwich?
Dinner - Pea soup with leftover ham.

Snacks - if I feel like it, some fruit, cheese or almonds.

I started off my day great, ran for 3 miles at the gym before work. When I had finished I was starving and needed coffee so I went to starbucks to get a ff latte, I also ordered a reduced fat blueberry coffee cake. Well I shouldn't have done that. I just checked the nutrients on the cake and it was 360 cals. Including coffee I ate 630 cals this morning which I feel has completely negated my run, which I was so proud of.

I am going to have to find something else other than instant oatmeal to eat at work for breakfast when I work out on a morning. I feel so disappointed in myself right now. :(

Why do I make these stupid choices?

Breakfast - bleah
Lunch - leftover salmon w/long grain and wild rice
Snack - orange
Dinner - venison, sweet potato fries, cabbage

Water - 2 liters

Exercise - ran 3 miles at gym.

Lynne, that run is great! :bravo: It's increasing your metabolism, building muscle and making it easier for you to exercise another day. As for the breakfast, it's a learning experience.

Ta Da! One hour of cardio! 60 full minutes! I started (self punishing) with five lb hand weights and 2 lb ankle weights. If any of you ever think a nine pound weight loss is nothing ... try that. It'll remind you how far you've come. After 25 minutes I set down the weights, after another 10 I took off the anklets. My son said I looked like a geek! It was an ugly mix of high and low impact ... dance/shuffle gasp! But I kept my heart rate up and I sweated.

Thanks Kim, I've been feeling pretty down this morning and needed some support. Your words really helped :hug:.

02-16-2006, 03:57 PM
I started my day great with 30 min cardio on the stair master.
B: 4 egg whites with 1/2 tbsp ketchup
Water 16.9 fl.oz
L: 1 1/2 piece of lasagna
Water 33.8 fl.oz
D: Cup of progresso homestyle chicken noodle soup

I end up eating peanut M&M's. I didn't needed it, but I just had to have it I guess. I end up eating 5 small fun size of it. I feel so guilty!!!

Today has been good so far! I did 15 minutes of cardio (dancing to my dvd) before I decided to buckle down, and work on my Psychology. So far today:

B: 3 eggs, fried...& 4 sausage links
L: None. If I get hungry, I might have a couple of pieces of string cheese.
D: Ginger Chicken with cooked broccoli & cheese

Hopefully, I'll get in another 15 minute cardio session before the day is over.

Hi! Started my day off with my slippers and a diet pepsi. Ha. It's -45 outside with the wind...

Anyways, for lunch I had 2 pieces of toast whole grain bread, with no fat mayo, sliced tomato, organic greens, and a slice of lean turkey sandwich meat. It was really filling, it felt like 2 sandwich's when I ate each one seperately.

Before heading to work, I had a slim fast milkshake in the blender with a banana.

Supper - at work.
I packed the same idea that I had for lunch. Also took along some no fat yogurt and half a cup of raspberries, along with baby carrots. I find the carrots to be a good crunch snack for at work.

Happy Thursday everyone!

Almost have had all my calories by lunch, today :(.

Breakfast: some of my leftover guacomole
lunch: two bean burritos and one of those mini chocolate Hershey bars.

Now that I've had 1000 calories already, I need to figure out how to make it the rest of the day on 2-300 calories. Spinach? lol

02-16-2006, 07:08 PM
Amended :)
I had my shake.
Lunch-cottge cheese, eggs, pineapple
Supper-salmon, salad, rice, cream corn

so far so good

Later-cottage cheese, yogurt and fruit.

Applbride! You've lost 5 lbs!!!! Good work!

Zoe! I sauteed my spinach the other day with a bit of garlic and tossed on some ff cotage cheese. Very tasty and only 125 or maybe 150 cals.

Today went horrible. I ate too much of chocolate, it seems like I am eating it for the days that I've didn't eat it. I never was a chocolate person. My husband is the one who is chocolate addict, and I was the one who always wanted to eat something salty or meaty. Well anyways, I am glad everyone else is doing great. I am drinking a lots of water, and had my chicken noodle soup for dinner. I feel horribly guilty, but I can't change what happened.

S- Nada, got up late because my morning class was canceled

02-17-2006, 12:38 AM
I stuck to my calorie range, with a cup of tomato soup and chicken nuggets. But my percentages were not so good. Almost three weeks of sticking to it, can't give up now!

Susan it looks like you had a great day--you should be proud!
