I decided to do the same as Liv and track my calories using MFP and WW points as well.

B: Greek yogurt (80c, 2pp), my egg salad (263c, 6pp)
S: Apple with LC blue cheese (110c, 1pp)
L: Lean Cuisine Spaghetti with Meat Sauce (300, 7pp), WW string cheese (50c, 1pp)
S: Banana (105c, 0pp)
D: Progresso Chicken Noodle Soup (140c, 4pp), grilled cheese on a sandwich thin (220c, 5pp), salad with light ranch (93c, 2pp)

Total: 1361c, 28pp

E: Run 1 mile (+114c, +2pp)

Net: 1247c, 26pp

Edited to add WW pp.



Re: Tuesday Accountability

  • I'm so annoyed, I didn't go to the gym last night and have no time the rest of the week ugh.  I had a crying breakdown last night when I got home from work I'm surprised I got dinner on the table.  Poor BF is about to flip out on someone at my job.  Long story short, our manager is MIA and needs to make some MAJOR decisions in regards to our new system that goes "live" on Friday.  No one has heard from her at all.....Anyway, onto my accountability lol.

    B-lo carb monster (1) potato bread (2) PB2 (1) sf rasberry jam (1)
    S-yo crunch (5) grapes (0)
    L-leftover cheesy chicken (13) side salad with rasberry vinagarette (0)
    S-clementines (0) cheese stick (2)
    D-leftover parm meatloaf (9)

  • B:  1 egg + 1 egg white, 1 TBS salsa; 1 pc toast with 1/2 TBS grape jelly; 1 oz black forest ham, 1/2 oz gouda cheese (276)
    L:  ST salisbury steak and 4.67 oz skillet potatoes, blood orange (404)
    S:  pink lady apple, 1/2 oz almonds (162)
    D:  1.5 c. bean mix/veg/ham soup (203 approx, need to weigh the meat), 1/2 molasses roll (130)
    dessert:  fruit, ~50-100 cals

    E:  either JM yoga (approx. -110) or 30 min jogging (approx. -215)

    net:  approx. 1060-1150, although if I do the jogging I will probably sneak in something extra with dinner.

  • I get it, buddysmom!  I work in IT right now (web development for the govt) and we are having some of the same issues... only it's the govt so it's a zillion times worse because management will never get it together!  :(

    I never have time to go to the gym (seriously, my schedule is ridiculous) so sometimes I will just do 20 minutes of jogging/running in place while watching a show or waiting on a casserole in the oven.  it burns about 7 cals a min for a 120-lb woman, so in just 20 min I can burn about 140 cals!  maybe you can sneak in something like that... or an HIIT interval?

    sorry it's so rough.  I totally get it and it sucks!  hug!

    Aw Buddy, I'm sorry work is being a pain. 

    Regarding the working out thing, I came across this workout yesterday and figured I'd share. It's a 20 minute workout and all you need is a jump rope. It says you'll burn 200 calories in those 20 minutes.


    While it's not cardio, I've gotten myself into doing push-ups. I read somewhere that at the wedding, the part of you that everyone sees is your arms and that realization was horrifying to me. I did 60 yesterday. 10 at the gym and then 10 each time I went to the bathroom. My favorite part is that not only are my arms sore but I 100% feel it in my abs too which is another place I need a ton of work.



  • B- mango greek yogurt with granola sprinkled on top, coffee with skim milk, banana
    L- lentil curry couscous with tomato, carrots, and onion
    S- special k cracker chips with a wedge of laughing cow light blue cheese
    D- homemade veggie pizza

    E- barre workout

    I guess I'm going to start tracking with MFP. I'd been just kind of eyeballing it, but as we discovered yesterday, I've been about 400 cals under where I should be.

    B: Greek Yogurt (160), 2 HB eggs (140)
    S: Clementines (105)
    L: Ham and cheese wrap (430)
    S: String Cheese (150)
    D: Baked chicken with french onion soup (331)
    S: Glass o wine (94)

    E: Assuming it stays nice, I'll do a lap around the complex = running 1 mile (+135), 40 crunches

    Net: 1275

    I'm sure I'll find an extra 200 cals somewhere.  I have chocolate in my purse.

  • Thanks ladies for the support.

    I like the idea of doing pushups after potty breaks, commercial breaks, etc.  I'm going to do that this week.  I'm also going to go up and down the two flights of stairs we have in our house for a half hour a day lol.

    Can't wait to get back to the gym next week!

  • I RAN LAST NIGHT! I know this usually wouldn't be a big deal but 1) I haven't run in MONTHS and 2) I ran 2.22 miles straight, at a pace I wouldn't normally have thought I could run at!

    I'm going to download MFP and try to keep track of everything. To the best of my knowledge, this is what I'm eating today (I have a REALLY hard time doing this in the morning, I wish we were saying what we ate yesterday, rather than forecasting what we might be eating today).

    B: Bowl of apple cinnamon cheerios (240 c)
    S: 20 peanuts and dried cranberries (200 c)
    L: Pulled pork and 1/2 sweet potato (360 c)
    S: 20 peanuts and dried cranberries (200 c)
    D: Hot dog and chips (BINGO NIGHT!) (467 c)
    Total: 1,412 c

    E: 2 mile run @ 11.5 min/mile pace (-225)

    Net: 1,187

    <div>It is SO true. While not every part of me was perfect, there are definitely pictures where I just sit there and admire my arms (yes, Tiger is vain). You've got plenty of time to work on your arms, and I think that's a great idea to do a few pushups every time you go to the bathroom!</div>

    <div>Fruits and vegetables are 0pp, yes? Add some more to your day for extra calories without changing points. An average sized serving of fruit is around 100 calories. Medium banana, apple, cup of grapes, a few cuties etc. </div>

    If it was me, since I'm always confused, I would stick with either WW points OR counting calories.

    I've never done WW, so I have no idea. I get that WW makes it easy for people, but "real" calories make more sense in my head. I blame the scientific training. Either way fresh fruits and veggies are the right way to go.
