I'm back from vacation with a few more pounds (shocking, I know). I'm not too far below my original starting weight from back in the day, so last night, I took some official "before" pictures (in only underpants and a tank top to get the full gruesome effect--no hiding, no holding in my tummy, nothing). I'm getting back into calorie counting while making an effort to eat as little processed junk as possible (although I will not kill myself for having Subway once or twice a week or a frozen entree for lunch or something--still better than many alternatives). I'm also going to try to get in at least 100g of protein a day.
Of course, today is a rough day to start on since we have a "happy hour" after work to celebrate my boss' birthday, and I promised Jeff I'd bring home dinner from the restaurant. I think they have a fabulous entree salad, though, that I will get for myself :)
Anyway, on to today's planning:
sandwich - 2 slices sugar-free whole-grain bread, 1T sodium-free organic peanut butter, sliced banana (300 calories total)
skim milk (90)
natural roasted red pepper and tomato soup with croutons (200)
Smart Ones sweet and sour chicken meal (140)
ugh, new plan...I just checked the menu for the restaurant I will be at tonight, and none of their salads sound particularly wonderful, so I'll just make some chicken at home - 5.75oz (cooked) boneless skinless chicken breast, 1 cup chopped broccoli, .25 cup shredded cheddar cheese, sprinkle of Butter Buds (385)Total: 1135. I'm sure I'll sneak in something else or add a sauce to my dinner or something, so I'll update as needed tomorrow. I'm also aiming for a minimum of 3 liters of water and hopefully something that at least resembles intentional exercise somewhere along the way :dizzy: I got a new Walk Away the Pounds DVD I have yet to try, but since I won't be home till probably almost 8pm, I'm probably not going to do that (since I won't do my workouts in front of Jeff :o ).
