Did very well last night at dinner, all things considered - had a lovely piece of grouper with some peppers and a bit of chorizo, started with a salad, and had exactly 5 bites of dessert. 1 glass of wine, and that'll wrap it up. Scale agrees I didn't overindulge (can't remember the last time I had a restaurant meal and wasn't way up afterward).

Plan for today:

B - French toast w/ apple butter
S - Orange
L - Openfaced tuna sandwich on light bread w/ jack cheese, pickles, grapes on side.
S - WW LC Tortilla, 1 tbsp natural PB
S - Popcorn
D - Grilled eye of round with a giant salad - grilled veggies, a few croutons, Brianna's light dressing
S - NSA Ice Cream

E - 60 min cardio (thinking I'll go for HIIT today)

Yesterday came in pretty much OP. I had a HB egg for an afternoon snack, along with a ff latte, but calorie-wise, okay. The City's dinner was sandwich fixings, so I had a turkey sandwich on 1/2 WW roll.

B - cheerios with walnuts, skim milk; toast with pb
S - grapes
L - Subway with co-worker - planning on salad
S - cottage cheese and banana
D - last of the chili, brown rice, and veggies

Ex: elliptical HIIT

Last night wasn't as bad as the night before, but wasn't great. Ended right at 2000 calories, try for 1900. Improvement over my weekend, but slowly. I would like to blame DH too but can't - even if he is the one that buys the product I eat I am the one that picked it up and ate it. I did exercise, so that is good.

Today: (DSS tonight, so dinner will likely be sandwiches - I often come in under when he is with us... going to hang on to that. )

E: cardio when I get home I hope
B: kashi w/ skim & berries, half banana, 16g slice of cornbread that I really didn't need and was kind of stale... the rest goes in the trash tonight...
L: grilled chicken salad
S: lf vanilla yogurt w/ berries, maybe trail mix or maybe no second snack
D: pb&j or turkey hotdog, apple w/ light swiss laughing cow
S: yogurt or fruit

I exceeded my calorie limit yesterday. I wanted the leftover brisket and tsimmes for dinner, so I very carefully portioned out just enough to stay within my calorie limit. Of course, since the brisket is a pretty high-calorie food, it was a pretty small portion. I ate my dinner, and I was still hungry. :sigh: I ended up eating a bowl of cabbage soup too, which is only 125 calories and filled me up and is nearly all veggies, but it put me at 1516 cals for the day, 116 over my target.

And of course, my weight is up again today. But only a little, and it's still down from last week. Today is a new day!

Thursday:
B - raisin bran, blueberries, skim milk
L - cabbage soup
S - apple
D - pasta with sauce, mushrooms, green beans, and roasted cauliflower.
E - NRLW S4W1B

DH was gone last night, and my dinner - once again - went downhill. Sigh. I need to learn to cook well for myself. Grazing is not the answer.

B - oatmeal with raisins, walnuts, skim; 1/2 banana; 1/2 eng muffin
S - hard boiled egg
L - chili, brown rice
S - cottage cheese, banana
D - leftover grouse, veggies, potato

Ex: Full body - done!

Friday:
B - raisin bran, blueberries, skim milk
L - @work, the most disgusting lunch ever, Bellacino's grinders. I had one piece veggie and one piece chicken.
S - apple (if necessary)
D - I *was* going to cook but after that gross lunch I think I'll just have cottage cheese and some fruit for dinner.
E - HIIT run tonight if it's not pouring rain, if it is raining I'll put it off until tomorrow morning

Yay! Under redline!

Planning -

B - French toast w/ eggbeaters
S - Grapes
L - Leftover - Pork and long bean stirfry
S - If needed, ww tortilla w/ PB and sliced apple
D - Rehearsal Dinner. I'm pretty sure I ordered the chicken breast. Goal is moderation, like any other restaurant meal (but I will have a glass of wine or two for toasting).

E - Did my lifting yesterday so I'd only have to do cardio today - 60 min.

And a little show and tell...last night, we worked on the centerpieces for the wedding we're in this weekend (yes, we're also doing the flowers). The colors for this wedding are BRIGHT blue and BRIGHT green. The bride found a photo of an arrangement made with blue roses somewhere, and asked if we could do it. Roses? Don't come in that color! So I was up until 2 last night individually spray painting (with floral spray paint) twelve dozen roses bright blue.

The arrangements definitely aren't traditional, but I think they came out fun and cute enough to match the couple (and not chintzy looking, as a spray painted rose might tend to be). The bouquets/personal flowers for the ceremony are a lot more traditional, but the centerpieces are all quirk.



But this morning? I blew my nose and it was blue. God only knows how much spray paint I inhaled (we were in the garage with WIDE open garage door and side door AND a fan blowing, so I did try to be well ventilated)
