Default No Excuses Into 2009 - Food and Exercise Accountability, 12/29 - 1/4/09

How is everyone doing?

I can make no excuses for this weekend. My in-laws were here, wine tasting was involved. While I only had one REALLY rich meal, and tried to order as lightly as possible, there was definitely some excessive consumption going on (particularly in the wine category). Still, I'm ready to move on.

I'm excited, I bought myself a heart rate monitor with a calorie calculator and many exercise DVDs with some Christmas money. So that'll be fun and allow me to mix things up...cannot wait for the shipments to arrive!

Today:

B - English muffin pizza
S - Orange
L - English muffin, toasted, with can of tuna
S - Popcorn
D - Big green salad w/ grilled chicken, kidney beans, and a ton of veggies
S - NSA Ice Cream Bar

E - 60 min elliptical, 60 min strength if I have time, if not I'll do strength tomorrow.

I definitely ate too much sugar over the last five days... I thought I was pulling it under control on Friday, then lost track again on Saturday. Sunday was back OP, though, and today should be as well. I did get all of my exercise in even with the holiday, so I'm proud of that.

Okay, new week, DSS on New Year's Eve and most of the day NYD, so olittle chance for slippage, I should be back on track by the end of the week. Here's hoping.

today:
B: Smoothie, cinnamon pastry flavored coffee w/ 1 tsp raw sugar, 1 Tbsp chocolate mint truffle creamer
S: string cheese
L: grilled chicken sandwich no mayo
S: tangelo
S: Kashi Go Lean
D: whole wheat pizza crust with grilled chicken, red pepper, turkey pepperoni, low fat mozzarella, red sauce, spices
S: Kashi Go Lean or peanut butter graham cracker

Exercise: 35 mins strength, 45 mins kickboxing planned when I get home

I got a new heart rate monitor for Christmas, also. I love it so far! My old one only told the heart rate without any fancy data. This one does pretty much everything!

E~30 minutes on the treadmill
B~grapefruit, banana
S~oatmeal
L~spaghetti w/meatballs, small tangelo
S~yogurt
D~fish tacos
Note to self: forgo the wine tonight--you had enough for three nights last night!

And boy will I be happy when the cookies are gone. We were playing a game last night when someone brought in the cookies and there they sat at the table where we were playing the game. I don't even remember how many I plopped in my mouth! Thankfully they're all quite small, but even small adds up!

At last - no more holiday parties! Yesterday was a little heavy on the wine side, though food was reasonable. Hard to believe that a catered buffet had plain steamed broccoli/cauliflower for the veg! And a nice green salad with the calorific extras in bowls on the side - so easy to skip!

B - cheerios with walnuts, 1/2 banana, skim milk; small piece of cornbread;
S - ff latte
L - turkey sandwich on ww with lettuce, tomato, peppers
S - apple
D - leftover shrimp/scallops over rice; peas or broccoli

Total: 1410

Exercise: treadmill or elliptical, depending on how crowded the gym is.....

Hi everyone! I'm going to pop in here so that I can publicly be accountable for my food/exercise.

Welcome to all our newbies! I LOVE 3FC for so many reasons, but our maintainers forum is one of my favorites, because it helps me SO much to be accountable here.

I stayed on plan yesterday until I let myself get hijacked by half of a peppermint chocolate chip milkshake from Chick-Fil-A last night... I had budgeted in a pretty high cal dinner and ended up with a salad instead, so the half milkshake didn't blow my calories too badly, but my fat percentage was terrible... Same thing happened to me at Thanksgiving - I wandered for a couple of days and it took me two weeks to get back on track...

Today's plan:
B: Smoothie, coffee of some kind with fat free creamer
S: gnu bar (on the road for work all day, need portable options)
S: String cheese
L: probably another salad, actually
S: Kashi Go Lean (hope to be home or at my office by then)
D: Grilled chicken, yellow rice, veggies
S: Peanut butter graham cracker

Exercise: yoga & either elliptical or stationary bike when I get home

Those calcium chews have really worked well for me. A little something sweet and chewy and something I can justify as healthy, but will never binge on or eat too many of cause I have images of kidney stones if I ever did!


Today:

3.5 mile run--done
protein pancakes
cottage cheese, blueberries
turkey sandwich
carrots, bell pepper strips, laughing cow cheese
dinner: ground turkey over steamed veggies
protein shake
