Default No Excuses - Maintainers Food and Exercise Accountability in February!

New month, new thread!

This weekend was OP, but scale is acting up (hormones and pain meds...shoulder is acting up). Tomorrow I get my new dishwasher installed, thank goodness! I got spoiled by having one for a year, now I'm dying without it.

Today:
B - Protein shake w/ strawberries
L - Big salad w/ veggies, grilled chicken
D - Small bowl chili, small slice sourdough
S - NSA Ice Cream
No exercise - rest day

Tomorrow:
B - French toast w/ eggbeaters
S - Orange
L - Leftover chili, no bread!
S - Greek yogurt, sprinkle homemade granola
S - Popcorn
D - Chicken and broccoli stirfry, brown rice
S - NSA Ice Cream

E - 60 min cardio snuck in first thing in the morning, due to some crazy schedule drama going on.

Ugh, day went haywire, all snacks skipped, went to Mexican for dinner (not my choice) - ordered chicken fajitas, ate 2 small corn tortillas, none of the sour cream, half of the beans, none of the rice, and 6 chips with salsa. Not catastrophic, but it feels like a brick in my stomach.

... crash planning for the rest of the day. DSS has a fever so I am closing down to go get him from daycare. I'll post the day at the end.

Midday update:

Amanda - I just caught the Mexican food reference. Obviously your scale likes Mexican food better than POP food, that must be it.

Sad today - a neighbor of mine had a heart attack last night, and while I don't have confirmation on this, I'm pretty sure given the activities by paramedics when they took her to the hospital that she was declared dead at the scene (no sirens, tubed but not bagged/no CPR ongoing, etc). They are great neighbors, an older couple always checking on us to make sure we're OK, and I'm so sad for her husband today.

B - French toast w/ egg beaters
S - Orange
L - Leftovers: Spaghetti squash bake
S - Popcorn
S - Protein shake
D - London broil, sweet potato fries, brussels sprouts
S - NSA Ice Cream

E - 70 min cardio - done.
