Last two weeks - POP, masterfully controlling my calories, kicking my own butt at exercise - net 3 lb gain.

This weekend - Horrifically off plan, one day at calories over 3000, including alcohol, the other days a little above average with zero exercise...net 2 lb loss. And I already rehydrated, so its not that I don't have as much water in me. I'm not exactly complaining, but boy, it'd make it a lot easier to stick with my plan if the plan worked and going off plan didn't.

WTF.

B - Eggs w/ zucchini, 1 tbsp cheddar cheese, scrambled. 1 slice toast, homemade strawberry jam.
S - Watermelon and strawberries
L - Grilled chicken, grilled zucchini, watermelon
S - Greek yogurt pop
S - Protein Shake
D - Salad w/ grilled chicken, grilled veggies, lots of greens, light dressing
S - NSA Ice Cream, strawberries

E - 60 min cardio, 60-70 min strength (probably split into two sessions due to meeting schedule).

Okay, June 1. I am on a 30 day no excuses plan. Jeans are tight, scale is creeping. Time to stop the madness. (the sad thing, it's not even really madness, no big splurges, no sleeves of girl scout cookies)

So, I actually got on the treadmill today. The first time in months, so I took it easy (normally I get all gung ho, hurt myself and give up). 2 miles, 200 calories.

B - Trader Joe's fat free Greek yogurt with honey, 6oz blackberries (200 calories)

L - big salad - romaine, red cabbage, carrots, grape tomatoes, 100 calories diced ham, low fat honey dijon dressing, 70 calories of crunchy spicy won ton strips (500 calories for all?)

S - tall latte (100 calories)

S - honey mandarin (100 calories)

S - string cheese (100 calories)

D - home made pasta sauce over 2 oz whole wheat pasta (500 calories total)

1500 calories for the day.

Sigh. Day 2 OP, day 2 with a gain (this one semi-expected, because I did have to take a painkiller last night, and that does lead to instantaneous gains lately, plus my workout yesterday was really, really intense).

Planning for today:

B - Scramble w/ 4 egg whites, 1 sl canadian bacon, broccoli, bell pepper, and 2 tbsp RF cheddar
S - WW LC Tortilla, cream cheese, turkey roll up
L - Leftover chili w/ veggies and red beans...mmm. Sarah makes KILLER chili.
S - Protein Shake w/ strawberries
D - Grilled chicken and veggie fajitas over mixed greens, topped with a crumbled corn tortilla, salsa, 1 tbsp FF sour cream
S - NSA Ice Cream, 1 tbsp low sugar apricot jam I'm canning today...mm.

E - 75 min cardio, 40 min yoga
