Default Journal Food/Exercise Challenge: 31 Days in May! Hooray!

Yowza! It's May today and I'm challenging anyone who so desireth to report their food and exercise on this thread for 31 days (or as many days as feasible), since for some of us, the act of journaling is often a major factor in weight management and fitness! Everyone who participates wins the challenge. There's no prize!

So be it! I'll have to search the mind since I wasn't planning to journal it. But I'll do "so far" today and maybe that will keep me on track for the rest of the day.

oatmeal w/2% milk
2 viactivs
2 slices olive loaf on a kaiser roll
1 carrot
2 (or close to it) servings of fr yogurt
pretzel stix
one small burger w/lettuce & onion
soft pretzel w/mustard
2 servings cantelope
Late night addition - 2 pieces Brach's wrapped soft candy

A little garden work (very little) only exercise so far.

Talking Yo! Day 1 of 31

Anagramatic, you are looking good there!!!! Thanks for joining the challenge and I appreciate how supportive you always are!!! And congrats on making your May Sprint goal!!!!! I just sent you an email to that effect (er, I accidentally sent it from my real name, so don't be alarmed if a stranger intrudes on thy inbox)!!!

Edited to add more stuff: The low carb Slimfast was a nice change but I probably won't buy it again as it has that addictive Slimfast taste and too many calories compared to the EAS:

2 whole wheat Eng muffins w/butter spray 270
EAS van CC shake 100

2 maple iced cake donuts 650
Slimfast low carb shake (vanilla cream) 190

Slimfast low carb shake (vanilla cream) 190

McDonald's cheeseburger 330

2 whole wheat Eng muffins 260
EAS van CC shake 100

1/2 T Better Than PB* 25
*A low fat pb spread (trust me, it's NOT better than pb)

1 cup lite sf soymilk 70

2 Slimfast low carb shakes (vanilla cream) 380

Total 2565 (oh well, there goes the weigh-in, but 31 days of journaling will help me get back on track)

Exercise: 35 mins , 5 min abs (I've decided for May to do abs on cardio days and alternate upper and lower body on weight days. It's too much to do total body in one weight workout)!!! May do yoga later but doubt it.

Sure glad I can post again!

Thanks for starting the thread, Empress! I've missed posting my menus--however, I'm really tired and will catch up tomorrow.

Didn't make my MayDay goal. But hope springs eternal!

Hope does, E! I've missed the menu posting, too! Except now I have to go back and edit the above as I spoke too soon that the kitchen is closed.

I can't stop eating!

I suspect this will be my off program day for the week.

2 slices whole wheat toast w/pb
2 viactiv
modest salad w/rich dressing on the side and forked sparingly
1 very thinly sliced piece of garlic toast
about a one cup casserole (1 1/2?) of vegetable lasagna
4 French fries (from dh's plate - he's not supposed to eat them)
2 cups decaf w/cream
2/3 of piece of carrot cake (not huge to begin with but shared with dh - I was going to say half a piece but truth be told my share was larger than his)
Cottage cheese/cantelope "smoothie" (not my best idea ever)
one cup Kashi Heart to Heart cereal
2 Andes mints
No exercise but I do think I managed to rein in the calories in the latter part of the day.

Here it is, the good, the bad and the ugly:

Breakfast: Leftover spareribs & Large coffee & two Hershey kisses (It was appealing at the time! )

Dinner: shaved roast beef, onions, red & green peppers, 1 slice jalepeno monterey jack cheese, with a squirt of steak sauce & a handful of baked fries. (DH had his on a bun and called it a cheesesteak.)

Bought myself three new CDs today at the mall, and I'm going out for a walk in the rain to listen to one!
