Oh, I'm in. All my pants are way too tight.

Stupid holidays.

Tuesday

B - Chobani yogurt, 140 calories, coffee with a splash of non fat half/half

L - big salad - green leaf lettuce, grape tomatoes, carrots, red cabbage, 1 Dr Praegar's California veggie burger (110 calorie), 2 tbs crispy onions (40 calories), Trader Joe's hummus dressing (tasty stuff but it doesn't go very far, I have to use more than I want, won't buy again), 500 for the whole thing (probably high, not sure how much dressing I ate)

S - orange (100)

D - 2 oz whole wheat pasta (200 calories), 4 meat balls (about 200 calories), marinara - oh, let's say 500 for the whole dinner

E - 45 minutes treadmill, easing into it after a looooong workout break - Mostly walked at 4.0, adjusted the incline between 4 and 8, got my heart rate up, got sweaty and nothing hurts, so consider it a success: 2.5 miles, 250 calories burned

Jessica, you're a good friend for giving me a kick in the pants. Hopefully this will last longer than my paper journaling. Which I'm also doing, but it tapers off when motivation wanes.

Tues
B - oatmeal w banana, apple, cinnamon, skim milk, chia seeds; coffee w 1 T. half & half
L - sandwich thin w lean ham & cheese, 1 c. raw green beans & 1 c. raw cauliflower, 6 oz lowfat yogurt, cherries
D - 4 oz pork loin, 1/2 c sauerkraut, ww pita w spinach dip
S - homemade pb & j chickpea "blondie"; pear; glazed almonds and a lowfat blueberry muffin, lots of tea
E - wogged w/ Emma approx. 3.5-4 miles

goal for Wed is to keep blood sugar even so I minimize snacking when I'm not truly hungry.

Wed (edited to reflect what actually happened!)
B - oatmeal w banana, cinnamon, skim milk, blueberries, walnuts, very small egg; coffee w 1 T. half & half
L - sandwich thin w lean ham & cheese, 1 c. raw green beans & 1 c. raw cauliflower, 6 oz lowfat yogurt, cherries
D - stuffed chicken breasts, collard chips
S - homemade pb & j chickpea "blondie", large apple, lots of tea, ended up also snacking on a ww pita w cheese & spinach dip, a few mini toblerones from my Christmas stocking
E - lunchtime gym workout - 15 min abs, 20 min stairmaster, 45 min (~ 2 miles?) walking w dog
Cals for day: 1930

My goodness, what is a homemade pb & j chickpea "blondie"? Please, tell me more!

Wednesday

B - chobani pineapple yogurt, 160 calories

L - big salad - green leaf lettuce, grape tomatoes, carrots, red cabbage, 2tbs crispy onions, chopped up leftover steak, fat free caesar dressing

S - tall non fat latte

S - orange

D - home made butternut squash soup. Added 3 oz of grilled chicken for more protein.

E - wow, TWO DAYS in a row. My word. I walked on the treadmill for 45 minutes (I'm watching Breaking Bad on Netflix on my phone and I told myself I can ONLY watch it on the treadmill, so that's a little motivating). Machine said I went almost 3 miles and burned 262 calories. I take that with a grain of salt, but it's gotta be better than nothing!

I think this is the recipe I used, though there are variations that floated around the healthy food blog world a while ago of different "flavor" chickpea blondies. At first I was a little disappointed. I mean, it's not a blondie. It's a much earthier flavor. But the original recipe made too many to eat fresh, I froze a few, and have been eating them this week as snacks. Initially I thought I wouldn't repeat the recipe but they've really grown on me. I know that's not exactly a ringing endorsement... but that's what they are!

You know what, even though my weight is going up (and up...and up...) I still want to log to ensure I'm making good choices even if it is a bit more food than normal. I am trying to keep the carbs relatively low per my midwife, due to my risk for gestational diabetes.

Breakfast - 1 egg and 3 egg whites, scrambled with broccoli and cheddar, fiber cake.
S - 1 apple, 1 tbsp PB
Lunch - Bowl of Southwest veggie soup, big salad with grilled chicken, broccoli, carrots, lots of lettuce, with reduced fat ranch-bbq dressing (RF ranch mixed with a tsp of bbq sauce).
S - Greek yogurt, blueberries, a little high fiber cereal for crunch
Dinner - Beef stew (lean beef stew meat, a few potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, garlic).
S - NSA Ice cream

Exercise - 80 min incline walking (split into several sessions) on the treadmill.

Mmm, beef stew does sound good. mandalinn I didn't realize you were expecting, congratulations!!!

I'm just going to edit at the end of the day/next morning to reflect what happened. I do like to plan ahead of time, bc for me planning is key!

Thurs (edited to reflect what actually happened!):
B - oatmeal w banana, cinnamon, skim milk, blueberries, walnuts, very small egg; coffee w 1 T. half & half
S - staff meeting - small serving scrambled eggs w sausage, mixed fruit
L - sandwich thin w lean ham & cheese, 1 c. steamed green beans & small baked sweet potato, cherries
D - turkey burger on light ww bun, steamed cauliflower w a sprinkle of mozzarella
S's - mixed nuts, hm chickpea blondie, tea, 1 gingerbread cookie
E - lunchtime workout - 30 min elliptical, squats, wog ~3~3.5 mi w dog

I was so excited I avoided nighttime snacking and thought it would be a low cal day, then realized my staff meeting "snack" helped put me up to 2000 cals for the day anyway. Doh! I am not so good at this.
