Thursday Accountability

Morning! I am tired today. It's raining here and it was really hard to get out of bed this morning. I wasn't great last night at dinner. We ended up going to our neighborhood steakhouse instead of trekking into the city because it was getting late and it was raining. I didn't order my steak grilled dry like I planned and I ate almost all 7oz. I had mashed potatoes that were to. die. for. And I had 3 glasses of white wine. So I definitely went over my daily points and tapped into my weekly points for dinner. Which is ok. I'm ok with that. 

B: Egg white omelette with tomatoes, onions, and 1 slice of American cheese (4), tea
S: Fruit cup
L: Lean Cuisine Ranchero Braised Beef (6)
S: Apple
D: Salad with feta and red wine vinaigrette (10)

E: 45 minutes on the elliptical (+6), 15 minutes upper-body weights (+1)

Let's do a question today for some snack inspiration:

What's your favorite healthy snack?
WW makes these little creme cakes that I am kind of obsessed with. I've had the chocolate creme cake, golden sponge cake with creamy filling, and yesterday FI brought home a couple boxes of the red velvet. They're SO good! And only 2 points. It satisfies my sweet tooth but barely affects my points for the day.

    B- yogurt with strawberries, tea,
    S- bagel with some butter
    L- vegetarian pad thai
    D-Tomato paella
    S- popcorn

    E- Hopefully some Just Dance

    I had pizza for dinner last night when I went out with my friend, ughh I had to take the cheese off of it though.  I haven't worked out as nearly as much as I hoped to this week.

    I'm not sure I have a favorite health snack, when I snack at home, it's something usually not so healthy.  Although sometimes applesauce with some cinnamon is yummy, and frozen banana in the food processor is good.  I also make my own banana pudding too.  Now that I think about it I may have to make some banana pudding tonight.


  • Options
    B:  2 eggs, 1 pc. toast, 1 tsp orange-fig spread, Emergen-C packet (250)
    S:  orange (80)
    L:  ST chicken cavatelli soup (330), large apple (120)
    S:  pistachios (85)
    D:  not sure... I'll have 475 cals left not including exercise, which I plan on doing.  I have some leftover cavatelli I might eat, or I have the stuff to make homemade tomato soup.  we'll just see!  actually, I'm thinking homemade tomato soup with a spinach salad... YUM.

    E:  cardio intervals, walk the dogs (approx 200-250); some body weight strength training (to get my arms ready for crutches)

    favorite healthy snack:
    I'm trying to eat closer to the ground (more whole foods) so I'm slowly getting rid of processed snacks. that's one easy thing I can change.  
    so right now, my favorite snacks are fresh fruit with fresh cheese, nuts, deli meat with cheese.  my favorite sweet snack is a couple of dark Hershey's kisses (20 cals each)
  • Options
    B: oatmeal (160)
    S: nuts (170) + hot chocolate (60)
    L: steamed veggies (175) + protein bar (190)
    S: ??
    D: not sure, probably 400-500 calories
    Total: 1155-1255

    I'm not sure what I will have for a snack, but I have 100-200 calories to spend depending on what dinner is.  Dinner might end up being soup again, depending on how I feel. 

    I love hummus for a healthy snack.  For extra healthy I eat it with veggies, for less healthy I eat it with pita bread.

    I had trouble posting all morning - just decided to try a different browser - and it works, so here I am!

    Anyways, I planned on doing my 2nd weekly weigh-in at the gym last night, and I really didn't want to. I knew I had taken in too much sodium over the past two days, and I felt bloated. Plus I had eaten two leftover pieces of (homemade) pizza for lunch just a few hours earlier, and my stomach still felt full with that food. I mentally prepared myself to be up a pound or two, but - I was down exactly 1lb! I know our weight fluctuates by more than that on a daily basis, but I'm just soo happy that it wasn't higher than it was last week (especially because I had expected that my starting weight was going to be about 5lbs higher than it was). Sigh of relief, and extra motivation for this week!

    B: Strawberry parfait smoothie: 380
    S: 15 reduced fat crackers: 210
    L: TBD (something light, since I already ate a bunch of crackers)
    D: TBD

    E: 1 hour horseback riding lesson tonight, and probably playing tennis with BF this afternoon. Minus at least 300 cals.

    I worked out yesterday for the third day in a row... woo hoo!

    My eating wasn't too bad, but I didn't have dinner at all, just 5-6 glasses of wine (ouch!)

    E: 20 mins running/walking on the treadmill and 20 mins of arm weights.
