Update on Goals/Food Log

So, first of all, I want to thank everyone who responded to my post yesterday. All of your comments were wonderful and I just have to say that I feel so supported by everyone, and it is greatly, greatly appreciated. ๐Ÿ™‚ You all are so fantastic. ๐Ÿ˜€

Now, since I am 110% committed to getting my butt back on track, I am back today with an update on my progress with the goals I set for myself yesterday. I am hitting this nonsense headfirst.

So, to recap, my plans for this week are:

Throw out all crappy food I bought (Iโ€™m looking at you, Salt and Vinegar potato chips).

The chips are in the trash, ladies and gents. Where they belong.

Go to store. Buy fruits and veggies, other healthy, ww-friendly foods I enjoy but donโ€™t have in the house.

I went to Giant at 8:30 last night and stocked up – I bought apples, bananas, cherries, yogurt, morningstar farms chik patties, lowfat hot dogs, spankin’ new (to me at least) hot dog bun sandwich thins, regular sandwich thins, lettuce, strawberries, a spiffy-looking raspberry vinaigrette dressing, crumbled goat cheese, light tortillas, 2% milk shredded mexican cheese, light string cheese,ย  artichoke and spinach hummus, baby carrots, a few “fresh” WW meals for the days where I have shorter lunch breaks, and some club soda to have with my POM wonderful juice. There was a tense minute in the bakery when I saw some black and white cookies,ย  but, as my friend Kathy would say, I gave them the Heisman trophy arm and ran away, telling myself that my spinach and artichoke hummus would taste way better than a B&W cookie (snorts).

Run 3x/week; 1 day, 1 mile, 1 day, 2 miles, 1 day, 3 miles.

Start sit-up/crunch challenge.

Track everything, even if itโ€™s not healthy food, I need to have it all written down. Actually, Iโ€™m going to track my food for a week on my blog, so I know other people will see what Iโ€™m eating. See Below.

BLOG MORE. Blogging helps me. Doin’ it now. ๐Ÿ˜€

Get back on the WW message boards. They are also helpful for me.

And, finally, my log of what I’ve eaten yesterday and today:


Breakfast – 1 egg, 1 slice of american cheese, sandwich thin.

2 cups cherries

Lunch – full English tea (best friend’s bridal shower). 4 tea sandwiches, 1 scone with clotted cream, taste of pineapple upside down cake, small brownie, macaroon, 3 cups of tea, 3 sugar cubes, 1 cupcake.

Blue Moon Beer (not at the tea shop…obv. ๐Ÿ˜€ )

Dinner – mama mary’s personal pizza crust, 1/4 c. mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup pizza sauce.

1/2 container of POM wonderful juice with club soda.

1 cup cherries.

How I feel about yesterday: Obviously the tea lunch was a splurge, but I ate really well for breakfast and dinner, and avoided the temptation to call the day a wash and get McDonald’s for dinner. So, I say Wednesday was a win.


Breakfast – Wallaby Down Under Organic Yogurt, apple, sandwich thin with 1 tbsp. grape jelly.

Snack – archer farms wild berry fruit strip

Lunch – 2 tbsp hummus and 1 serving of baby carrots, 1.5 tbsp light mayo, 1/2 cup tuna fish, 1 cup cherries, 1 string cheese.

Snack – Fiber One Granola bar

Dinner – low-fat hot dog, hot dog bun sandwich thin, tbsp goat cheese with 1 serving wheat thins, 2 servings bagel chips with cheese

    I looooove the spinach and artichoke hummus!

  2. Sounds like you are making some great choices. I just blogged about my successful food shopping trip, as well. Feels good to make the right choices, doesn’t it? It’s all about perspective and what matters more.


  3. Woohooo!! Having a stocked fridge with healthy foods is definitely a huge step in the right direction!

  4. Way to go! I am starting over again as well. I am using Spark People now and staying away from boards, since they did more harm than good for me.

    Yea!!! You go girl you are moving in the right direction!!
    Love Ya

  6. LOL, love your cartoon doing the Heisman stiff arm. Oh, and you made me hungry for french toast with your post over on my blog today…. 12 or so hours later, still smelling french toast in a house none has been made i for months. Odd.

  7. Sigh. It made me tired just reading this. And reminded me of how awesome I used to look when I followed a similar routine. Stupid babies. jk- kind of ;o)

  8. Hi Kristen…how’d your week go?

    • It wasn’t too bad! I am off plan this week, really, as I had to go out of town unexpectedly but I’m prepared to get right back on track as soon as I get home this weekend! ๐Ÿ˜€

    yeah girl, got to give the black and white’s the heisman. i went to bing’s bakery about a month ago to pick up cupcakes for a party….so while i couldn’t do the heisman….i was doing the clydesdale (re: picture horse with blinders forcing me to look straight ahead). i walked in there and literally just chanted to myself “you are just here for cupcakes. you are just here for cupcakes.” for me, it’s a daily struggle.
