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:

Wednesday

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.

Thursday:

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
