Default No Excuses! Maintainer's Food and Exercise Accountability, 4/6 - 4/12

After an OP weekend (though one that will leave me with some sodium water retention, as I had Thai one day and Vietnamese the next), I'm ready to dive into another week with a solid plan.

B - Egg whites w/ broccoli, turkey bacon, and bell pepper, 2 slices light toast
S - Asian Pear, Laughing Cow
L - Two LC WW tortillas, pinto beans, reduced fat cheddar, sauteed pepper and zucchini, a dollop of FF sour cream, salsa
S - Greek yogurt and strawberries
S - Popcorn
D - Giant Spring vegetable salad - Chicken breast, greens, asparagus, sugar snap peas, broccoli, zucchini, carrots, cucumber, edamame, and sliced red pepper. Tossed with a few croutons and light Asian Sesame dressing
S - NSA Ice Cream, Strawberries, Homemade Lemon Curd

E - Bought an "Ultimate TaeBo" DVD...it's 90 minutes long! So we'll see if I can do it...new challenge.

I behaved very well Friday night at beer club, but ate some extras Saturday being lazy and munchy. Sunday I kicked my butt into gear and ate POP, went for a morning 8 1/2 mile powerwalk and had afternoon benchpress training/50 min. elliptical at the gym (I'm really getting scared about the competition weigh-in and was mad at myself for being lazy Saturday). I keep telling myself that what I really need to do it run more, and do more high-intensity cardio, but can't make myself follow through *grumble*.

Ignoring the brownies someone brought to work today.

Monday's plan: (edited Tuesday to reflect what I ended up eating Mon)
B - 1 c. Fiber One cereal, 1 c. skim milk, small banana, coffee w/ 1 T. h&h
L - ww tortilla, 2 oz. chicken breast, 1/2 cup smashed black beans, and salsa wrap, 1 c. carrots, 1 c. cucumber slices
lunchtime walk ~ 1.5 miles
S - 1 oz. raw almonds, 6 oz. light yogurt, strawberries
gym - walked 2 miles, ran 3.5 miles, abs/core 30 minutes
post-gym snack - protein muffin
Book club for dinner - ~6 oz. roasted venison, 1 cup roasted brussel sprouts in some kind of light sauce.
Cal - ~1690 and great cardio day!

The new cardio got me so revved that I just want to do more! If I can find time, I'm adding on 30 min more cardio. My rule - if I'm actually CRAVING exercise, I give in!

Today - over by 300 cals. I was super hungry, but wish I had showed a bit more restraint. Oh well - I did the extra workout, too, so probably ended up at a wash calorie-wise.

Tomorrow's Plan:
B - Light wheat bread and egg beater french toast, 1 cup strawberries
S - Greek yogurt, more strawberries
L - Leftovers: Grilled chicken salad w/ edamame, tons of veggies, greens, sesame ginger dressing.
S - Popcorn
S - Muscle Milk Lite protein shake w/ a little almond milk, frozen strawberries
D - Chicken breast fajitas with a ton of veggies on WW low carb tortillas
S - NSA Ice Cream, Strawberries, Lemon Curd (we're totally hooked on this dessert!)

E - 60 min step, 60 min strength training intervals.

Yesterday was perfectly on plan for me. First POP day in a while! Came in 200 calories under my calorie goal - planned it that way to give myself a little calorie cycling.

Today:
Exercise - 55 mins yoga done, some treadmill when I get home. Just got it put together last night so haven't used it yet.

B: smoothie,
S: pb&j
L: grilled chicken salad
S: apple
S: kashi go lean
D: vindaloo chicken over wild rice
S: skinny cow

Ridiculously hungry again yesterday. Added an extra serving of cashews before dinner and 4 whole wheat crackers with a laughing cow cheese after dinner. I feel like my body is sabotaging me. I'm at a good weight, all my clothes fit perfectly, I am eating what I always eat - so this inexplicable hunger is making me so miserable
