Sounds like a lot of us are in the same boat. Who invented Easter candy anyways??

I was OP Sat, yesterday and today; didn't count cals on Sun. Got on the scale this a.m. . . up two lbs. Srsly, I stay OP and nothing happens, go off for a day and the scale climbs. Grrr . . .

b: coffee, kashi, strawberries, milk - 400
s: popcorn - 150
l: ww rice/beans with some added chicken and mushrooms - 400

No wiggle room today and I could eat the whole damn house right now. Ugh, having a hard time.

Summerlove- hey they say a "refeed" or "cheat" day can do wonders for boosting the weightloss. We can always hope though right?

K9- Good luck with the thyroid meds, and the race! Thats super exciting (race of course not possible thyroid issues)!

looseseal- Boo! That sseriously isn't fair. I'm crossing my fingers you have a big drop this week.

Yesterday turned out much differently than the planned meals. Ate some awful foods, but sine I didn't eat much of them I still stayed under my 1730 calorie goal. Gotta update yesterdays actual.

CIELOARGE 04-10-2012 02:02 PM

I binge yesterday, didn't keep track but probably ended in the high 2000's.

The calories are not so much the problem, but everytime I overeat "unhealthy" food I can't sleep. My gallbladder kills me all night! So I will not count calories for the next 3 days because I'll be doing an apple "detox". Searching online says that 3 days of eating organic apples would help cleaning the gallbladder. Might as well give it a try, I am tired of taking advil.

wannaBfitnessbuff 04-10-2012 02:05 PM

:rollpin:*edit So again I didnt stay with the plan on the planned foods. Not too upset with the end result though. I have been landing a bit higher on the calories, I guess come monday we will see if this level is enough to lose.
Ok so here is the thus fars and the plans for the day:

Breakfast: Coffee with no sugar added chocolate packet, coffee creeamer and gummy vitamins- 117 cals

Lunch: 3oz spinach, 1 tbsp light italian dressing, 1 cup steamed peas with sriracha drizzle, 2 cups country vegetable soup, 1 hard boiled egg- 418 cals

Dinner: (planned) Red Quinoa with zucchini tomato mushroom and 1 tsp olive oil, large mixed greens salad with light italian dressing, 6 oz glass red wine-697 cals Actual(also includes 2 snacks I had):Mashed potatos :rollpin:, large green salad with almonds and vinegarette, 2 oz pasta with basil tomato and 1 tsp olive oil, wine, greek yogurt with strawberries and honey (craving dessert!)- 1531 cals

Total: 1432 cals Actual: 2066 cals

Exercise- Lifted shoulders 20 mins. 30 min elliptical, ran 3 miles in 29:32.

I've been really motivated with healthy eating and exercise, but I just am having so much trouble getting my cals in order!

Breakfast: whole wheat tortilla with 1 egg and 3 egg whites, 1 slice veggie cheese, vegenaise, and 2 veggie sausages=476

Snack: 3 strawberries, coffee+soymilk=72

Lunch: hard boiled egg, grapes, apple slices, wheat bread with 1tbsp peanut butter=380

After Workout Snack: luna protein bar=170

Dinner: stuffed pepper and 1/4 cup veggie rice with sauce=439

Snack: one small piece of chocolate=57

Total: 1594 :D yay

Exercise: 1 hour session with pt doing circuit training and heavy lifting

wannaBfitnessbuff 04-10-2012 02:19 PM

Dottington- Welcome, and yes accountability is great. I'm recently started and this thread has been welcoming and a huge help for me. Good luck!

K9Owner 04-10-2012 08:36 PM

There is no way I'm going back to where I left off :lol: Who wants to read all of that anyway??
I survived Easter with only a couple dark chocolate eggs and 9 starburst chews--no Starburst Jellies even! I don't guess I missed them.
I worked Easter Night and Monday night. Here's the damage:

Cals: 1404 :woohoo:
Water: 64 oz
:exercise: 299

Cals: 1765
Water: 64 oz
:exercise: 568


Veggie Lasagna, Cereal, PB Crackers: 378
Veggie Lasagna, Granola: 378
Veggie Lasagna, Granola, Yogurt Raisins, Trail Mix, Green Beans, Fiber Bar: 737
Protein Shake: 115
Total: 1934

Water: 88 oz
:exercise: 712 :wl:

I've had a better last couple of days with cravings and hunger. I think ovulation is over for this month and I hope it has taken all of these pesky symptoms with it!! Especially the increased hunger!!
I adopted the "Leave Your $ at Home" technique on work nights. It is defo working to keep me out of the cafeteria and off the junky snack food at work! If I don't take it, I can't eat it :)
It's pathetic I can't even take money with me out of fear of over-consumption of food!!

looseseal: Awesome! Staying OP and running!!
K9Owner- Awesome easter for you! You really knocked it out of the ballpark with your calories.

Yesterday was such a struggle for me. I did great fighting off the (many many!) craving yesterday for my nemisis foods (salty fried junk). But I ended up giving in at dinner to a LARGE helping of mashed potatos. Since I burned around 500 calories I am ok as far as level of net calories, but I really want to stick with the 1750 as my total, not just net.

Better choices today. I can do this.

wannaBfitnessbuff 04-11-2012 12:49 PM

Alright maybe this is beginning to border on insanity that I keep trying to lay out a pln for the day (and inevitably not follow it). But maybe with practice it will come??

Breakfast: 1/3 cup oatmeal with 1/8 c. mix of raisins and craisins, coffee with 1/3 cup vanilla rice milk- 211 cals

Post Weight Lifting workout Smoothie- 1 scoop chocolate whey protien, 1 small banana, 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, 2 oz fresh spinach- 273 cals

Lunch(Planned)- Large mixed greens and spinach (40), cherry tomatos (5), grapes 40 g (26), slivered almonds 1/2 oz(80), hard boiled egg(70), white balsamic vinegar(20), 1 tsp evoo (40), 1 pear 200 g(116), 1/2 cup kidney beans(110)-507 cals

Dinner(planned)- Okay I'll figure this out later....

CIELOARGE 04-11-2012 02:40 PM

Well, 1st day of the "apple detox" went just fine. No cravings, no crazy thoughts about food... didn't even feel hungry... let's see how today will go.

I guess for me it's easier to do it because I am doing it to feel better..

Yesterday I had like 8 apples... red delicious... I am sure by tomorrow they won't be so delicious anymore :D

Dottington 04-11-2012 03:12 PM

Thanks so much k9owner and wannabfitnessbuff, I'm already loving it! :D

looseseal-I think its so amazing you ran for 30min!

wannabfitnessbuff-I've been having the exact same issues :/ my nets are usually ok from all the exercise, but I really just want to stick to a number. We can do it! And I'm sure it will get easier with time :)

Breakfast: 2 veggie sausages, 1/2 high fiber blueberry muffin, plum, small apple, 4 strawberries, coffee with soymilk=440

After Workout Snack: seiten primal strip=74

Lunch: Wrap=332

Dinner: small corn tortilla with veggie meat, cup vegetable soup, cup poporn=530

Snack: small piece of chocolate=84
