Default Daily Accountability??

I am having a hard time getting on track as of late, and see a few others out there that appear to be in the same boat. Would anyone be interested in doing an accountability thread with me? Just post your eats for the day, maybe your calories. Also I would love to see what your work outs are and how often you do them. Maybe weight as well? I think a few weeks would do the trick of healthy eating to get me back on track! Anyone with me?

Totally up for it. I log daily on LoseIt actually, and I find that helps a lot -- 3FC is a great forum & resource to discuss issues around weight loss & food & all kinds of things, but something like FitDay or LoseIt is still a necessary complement.

Joining you: I ate 300 cal in cookies between midnight and noon and then ate sensibly all day after that:

L: grilled chicken (4 oz), a few tbsp bulgar wheat (2 oz), broccoli (4 oz), cucumber, on a bed of salad. 264 calories.
D: carrot & ginger soup (4 oz), roast veggies (4 oz), baked cod (4 oz). 330 calories incl. lots of healthy fats cooked into the fish & veggies.
S: a spoonful of mango sorbet (couldn't resist), a handful of Total, an orange (70 cal), and three rice cakes (105 cal together). assuming ~200 calories.

That makes just about 1100 for the day. I didn't exercise substantively because my ankle was in huge pain all day -- so assuming 0 extra calories from exercise, just a bit of crutching around as if with normal mobility. I'm hoping writing this here keeps me from late-night snacking.

I'm trying a lower-carb diet starting tomorrow -- a kind of painful decision because I have a LOT of amazing carb snacks in my room right now -- but it has to be done. I think I'll take some of the little cakes to the dining hall and leave it there (college students will take/eat anything).

ETA: Oops, I couldn't resist eating another two rice cakes... adding another 70 calories. Ah well. I need to get off this carb binge -- tomorrow.

Lunch: 9 Brown Rice Crackers eaten with hummus, grape tomatoes, green olives, 2 slices smoked tofurky.

Sure, yay for more accountability. I'm on FitDay, which is actually really helpful, but I know I don't put in random spoonfuls of this or that that I snack on. Maybe having it posted here for all to see will help.

Yesterday:
B'fast: Homemade smoothie- banana, fat-free yogurt, strawberry, bran
Lunch: (estimated, ate out family-style): 1 appam (rice bread), 1/2-3/4 c coconut rice, somewhere between 1-1.5 c assorted curries
Dinner: 3 bites of pizza, 2 bites of leftover curry/rice, Slim Fast with skim milk

Total: aside from the "bites", 1250. Including everything, probably closer to 1400.

Exercise: 30 minutes moderate yoga

Today so far:
B'Fast: Homemade smoothie- banana, fat-free yogurt, bran, honey
Snack: 1 spoonful Nutella (oops), 3 short strips seasoned nori
Lunch: 1 cup homemade cauliflower-carrot puree

krampus that orange + cheddar cheese sounds delicious...

Yeah, I started up my FitDay account again today, but seeing as though I am the only one looking at what I eat, I thought it might be fun to do it here, too. I put the last two days into my fit day, I was totally able to see where most my calories come from: beer and late night "snacks" which are actually whole meals. I am surprised that I haven't gained MORE weight to be honest.

Yesterday:
B:4 tiny pancakes and a mango
S: 1/3 pumello (like a really big grape fruit)
L: Homemade Vegan black bean burger on WW bread, w/ avocado and veg.
S: peanuts
D: (This was my down fall) salad, two slices of pizza (small), 1/3 a fried veggie chimichanga, and a few bites of pasta, topped off with 3 beers.

Today has been so much better!
B:1 boiled egg, 1.5 WW toast, 2 Tbsp Veggie baked Beans, tomato/cucumber salad
S: Sports drink (I get so tired of water)
Late Lunch/early dinner: Homemade black bean burger crumbled on top of a salad with lettuce, tomato, red peppers, avocado and corn.

This puts me at 990 so far, but I know My husband will be hungry when he gets home from work. Therefore I will make pasta w/ veg for him and have just veggies with sauce for me.

I LOVE pomellos!!! I could eat an entire one in one sitting.

I finished off today pretty bad with:
Dinner: 1 slice of personal pan pizza, 1/2 of banana/peanut butter sandwich, ANOTHER spoonful of Nutella, a pear and 4 more Pringles. Worst dinner ever!

Not necessarily a ton of calories, but a lot of processed food. This is stuff I usually don't eat. Not sure what happened today :-/

I started today off pretty rough calorie-wise, just eating a bit too much in my zeal to keep carbs down. But I'm hopefully on track to finishing strong.

Pre-Breakfast snack [8 am]: 110 cals
• 4 TJs flaxseed & soy tortilla chips: 70
• 2 Tbsp three-layer hummus: 50

Breakfast [9 am... haha]: Turkey-bean-egg wrap, 170 cals
• 3 slices turkey (lunchmeat): 76
• 2 hard-boiled eggs, whites only: 34
• 1 slice tomato: 3
• 1.5 oz (3 Tbsp) refried beans: 40
• 9 grapes -- I indulged: 15
• 6 oz coffee, 12 oz water

Lunch [12 pm]: Grilled chicken salad with parmesan honey vinaigrette, ~290
• 4 oz grilled chicken: 150
• 1 Tbsp granola & oats: 30
• 2 cups salad mix, field greens: 20
• 1/2 cup cucumber: 8
• 1 cup green beans: 34
• 2 Tbsp vinaigrette (homemade) with 30% 170cal dressing, 10% honey, 40% water, 20% vinegar: 70
• 6 oz coffee, 12 oz water, 12 oz light lemonade (8 cals)

4pm "Oh crap I'm hungry" random snack: 153 cal
•*1/8 cup Cracklin Oat Bran: 33
• 1/2 cup Special K: 60
• 4 more tortilla chips: 60
-- followed by more cravings, alleviated by nap.

7:30 "Wake up and run to dining hall and beg kitchen staff to let me make a salad" dinner: 265 cal
• ~0.75 oz Quinoa and Dried Cherry Salad, topping: 45
• 2 cups salad mix, field greens: 20
• 4 oz tuna (water): 145
• 1 cup snap green beans: 34
• 2 Tbsp chopped red onions: 8
• 24 oz light lemonade (16 cal), 12 oz water

I'm at just under 1000 calories and 93 carbs (68 net carbs) for the day, which is about 75-100g carb fewer than I usually eat. Still have room in my budget for a cup of carrots and super-rich peanut butter, or a cookie. I'm tempted but not hungry at all... though i did have a bit more sodium than I like (2800 mg), today was (mostly) a cravings-control success!

Oh dear. I'm already at or above calories for the day and it's 1 pm and I had allotted 1800-2000 for the day. Been a pretty steady stream of nutritionally void things - yogurt parfait with bran flakes and jam, "trail mix" cookies, coughcough a medium pizza (about 2 big NY slices' worth, Japanese pizzas are small) coughcough...

So last night I ended up getting really hungry by the time the hub was back from work, plus I was midway making a massive pot of spaghetti with homemade sauce and grilled eggplant for him. I ended up having a small portion of it with parm cheese, along with fresh pineapple and two squares of chocolate for dessert. All in all I was around 1550 yesterday.

Now that I am counting calories properly (first time in a while) using FitDay I think I need to make a caloric goal and stick to it: 1400 if I am working out, 1200 if I'm not. Hopefully this will push me to work out more.

So far today:
B: coffee with sugar
1.5 slices WW bread with 1.5 Tbsp Peanut butter
L:1.5 portions of left over spaghetti w/sauce, eggplant, cheese
S: 3 crackers

already nearing my allowance for the day and it's only 2:30 and I have to work this evening...

Today was an odd day. Judged a debate tournament, went shopping, tried to work on my thesis in between but ended up watching The Office and lurking on 3FC. No intrusive food thoughts, just... horrible procrastination. Horrible.

I bought 2 Full Bars at CVS on a whim and after trying to eat half of one, regretted it immediately. That was the least satisfying $1.25 & 80 calories I've ever eaten - literally tasted like sugary styrofoam. Maybe it will work? I'll keep you all updated.

B: 1 pork sausage link, 3 oz scrambled eggs, 1 medium banana: 300 calories
S: 1 peanut butter chocolate chip cookie (haha -- 140 cal)
L: 2 oz seitan steak, 4 oz steamed green beans, 3/4 cup steamed broccoli, 4 oz egg whites, boca burger, 1/4 medium apples (three bites) = 260 calories??
D: 1/2 Full Bar (banana bread), 1 boca burger, 2 oz three cheese gnocchi (savoring the yumminess of about 6 individual gnocchi pieces, lol) - 260 cals

EDIT: I had planned to eat another 300 cal in snacks, but instead of waiting with them sitting next to me in my room, I wolfed down the 1.5 cups of green beans... and nothing else. I can't even work up the appetite for PB & cottage cheese. Maybe the "Full Bar" and all that fiber is actually working... or the gnocchi had more calories than I thought. Either way, ending the day a little less on-plan than yesterday, 82g net carb, 78g protein, 29g fiber, just over 1000 calories.

so today started off well:
B:WW toast, PB, coffee
L:egg noodles with mixed veggies
S:7 crackers with PB and calcium enriched chocolate milk (have been craving milk a lot recently but normally rarely drink it)
D:Sweet roll with meat inside (work provided, I didn't eat the meat)

After work I was a little hungry so I made my husband pasta with broccoli and tomato sauce. I ended up having some of the pasta (but mostly just veg) with him. I ended the day just over 1600. Hopefully tomorrow goes much better.
