nom nom nom

Tried 3 Kashi's so far, all were good so I thought I'd share:


So, I didn't work out yesterday like I said I was going to...

I was just too freakin' tired.
I went home and took a nap.

I'm counting calories today but it won't be good cause I'm still suckin' down cranberry juice...

Monday, June 29, 2009

heads up

I am NOT counting calories today.

Bad, I know.

BUT I'm having to drink cranberry juice. (cause I'm either finally passing a kidney stone or I have a UTI) And the bottle I had this morning was 280 calories! YIKES!

I do intend on going to the track after work.
& if it's raining I will do the elliptical at home!

Friday, June 26, 2009


Well, at least I didn't gain any...

1028 for yesterday

oatmeal 160
Kashi 280
Mr. Misty 120
Soup 468

15 mins elliptical -179

total: 849

I only did the track once this week. Which is not good considering I intended on being able to do it twice a day next week. Right now my plan is to do it once on Monday and Tuesday and hopefully be prepared to do it twice the rest of the week.

I put 3 Weight Watchers recipes on my other blog.
They are super YUMO!

1261 for Yesterday

oatmeal 160
blueberries 41
2 tacos 400
sweet tea 180
chips/salsa 80
2 tacos 400

15 mins elliptical -179

total: 1082

If only I had ordered water instead of sweet tea... ugh

I got rained out of going to the track.
And yes, I should have done the elliptical at home but I didn't.
I barely want to do it in the mornings.
I'm sooo burnt out on it.
I keep forgetting to ask my boss to sell me her Treadmill...

The scale better be nice to me tomorrow of I'm gonna throw it in the road!

1212 for Yesterday

oatmeal 320
watermelon 90
peanut butter 90
onion rings 200
subway melt 380
chips 130

15 mins elliptical -179
20 mins track - 213

total: 820 (I like the looks of that!)

I find it really hard to believe that I only burned 213 calories jogging on the track in 99 degree heat, but whatever. And I didn't stop at 20 minutes, it took me 20 minutes to do the track...

My legs hurt so bad last night I could barley move. But thank the heavens they are not sore this morning! I guess all the stretching and scalding bath helped.

One foot off the wagon...

I was bad yesterday...
No working out.
& no counting calories (cause I knew it was bad).

But my foot is half way back in today.

I'm gonna start going to the track on Post after work.
Jogging in the neighborhood isn't working out. The hills cause my calves to hurt and then I don't do it again until it stops hurting. So I'm gonna try and get some strength in my legs while I can still get on Post and hopefully by the time Kevin's out I can jog the neighborhood without fail.

I have made 3 Weight Watchers recipes so far and the hubbs like em all! How exciting is that???

Friday, June 19, 2009


I lost a pound!
Woot Woot

I'll admit, I was very nervous stepping on that scale.
But a pound lost is better than anything gained!

1323 for Yesterday

oatmeal 160
blueberries 41
lean cuisine 230
cheddar peppers 248
stir fry 644

elliptical 30 mins -359

total: 964

The stir fry was a Weight Watchers recipe and it was hella good! Even the hubbs liked it! I will try to put up the recipe next week. I had 2 servings of course. There was no way I could only eat 1 cup total of food...

1290 for yesterday

Could have been better had I gotten a salad at Red Lobster...
I did do the elliptical for 30 mins.
& I regret it, my legs are on FIRE today!

cupcake 270
chicken & shrimp 390
biscuits 300
stuffed mushrooms 130
taco 170
veggies 30

elliptical -359

total: 931

I'm gonna go ahead and predict that I the scale is not gonna be nice tomorrow.

Good news: My husband who only drinks Mt. Dew heard something about high fructose corn syrup and seriously told me he wasn't going to drink it anymore. I don't believe him but time will tell I guess. I asked him if he was not gonna eat anything that had it in it and he doesn't think too many things have it, but I'm gonna show him just how much. haha

Supposedly the Mt. Dew Throwback doesn't have it but that's only out for a limited time I think...???

He wanted to know wtf I was gonna be cooking since he only seen 2 things of hamburger meat in the fridge after my grocery store trip. I told him CHICKEN! As long as I don't let it get boring I think he'll tolerate it.

1300 for Yesterday

Well, that's a little better!

oatmeal 320
kashi frozen meal 320
peanut butter 90
apples w/caramel 140
cheeseburger 430

I haven't worked out all week! UGH
But I will today when I get home!

Kevin is on leave so he's not getting up early and I just can't bring myself to get out of bed that early when he's still in it!

I was super surprised that the Kashi lunch was good yesterday. It's all natural and it was amazing that the chicken actually tasted like chicken and not cardboard! They are kinda expensive (cheaper than eating out though!) but that one was definitely worth it. I have another to try later this week.

We'll be going out to lunch today for a co-workers birthday. I'm gonna try my hardest to only order a salad...

1656 for Yesterday

Well, didn't I start my week off great?
Last night was the last night we eat out for a while! ugh

biscuit 280
2 eggs 199
2 bacon 70
lean cuisine 340
blueberries 41
fried rice 726

total: 1656

and I didn't work out...

I have to go grocery shopping tonight.
I'm gonna go through my Weight Watchers cookbook.
Hopefully I can find something yummy!

Lovely way to start my weekend.
A 4 oz gain instead of a loss! ugh

Can I PLEASE blame it on my cycle??? lol

Kevin and I went to Miyori last night and I'm not even gonna attempt to count the calories, I know it's not good. I will see how many I had to spare though...

oatmeal 320
double decker taco 350
1 tbsp peanut butter 90

15 mins elliptical -179

total: 581

I'm pretty sure I ate more than 619 calories last night.
Between the sushi, shrimp, veggies and lots of rice, it's not looking good.
But hey, I did drink WATER!

I hope I don't gain 5 pounds being at my parent's this weekend.
That would suck major ass! Keep your fingers crossed for me!

I looked into Weight Watchers yesterday.
I'm allowed 24 points a day and a 35 point allowance a week.
I'm trying to find a place to get the books I need to show how many points everything is...

I just really think that would be easier for me than counting calories.
I guess trial and error is the only way to find out.
But, I can't do anything until I find the books. Ebay here I come!

1420 for Yesterday

Ugh, I suck at this.
At least it's better than yesterday...

sweet tea 180
grilled cheese 380
taco 200
rice 100
sweet tea 180
lasagna 380

15 mins elliptical -179

Total: 1241

Does anyone else think it's impossible to burn more calories than you eat?

I'm dreading the scale tomorrow morning... ugh

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

Uh Oh

I'm eating out for lunch and was trying to plan ahead...

Found out the Volcano taco from Taco Bell that I had about 4 times last week has 800 calories! HOLY SHIT, and I wonder why I'm fat!?

I'll be getting the double decker taco supreme that's only 350.
Hope it feels me up...

1448 for Yesterday

I quite obviously went over.
But dang I didn't know until this morning that a freakin steak was 600 calories! WOW

chocolate cupcake 160
7 almonds 43
turkey wrap 78
1/2 cup raspberries 32
1/2 cup blueberries 41
1 tbsp peanut butter 180
steak 600
noodles 280
1 cup cauliflower 34

15 mins elliptical -179
15 min jog - 159

Total: 1110
I've really got to start burning more!
That 15 min jog sure as hell felt like it burnt a million calories!

1138 for Yesterday

Glad I had some to spare because I'm not certain exactly how many calories were in the chili I ate. As with other things, I have to guestimate sometimes.

oatmeal 320
1/2 cup raspberries 32
1/2 cup blueberries 41
turkey lettuce wrap 78
2 chocolate cupcapes 320
raisins 45
1/2 cup bluberries 41
homemade chili 261

Yeah, just think how many calories I could've spared without the cupcakes! I couldn't help it, they were the best I've ever made! I know not to make them very often anymore.

I struggled yesterday, if you can't tell by all the snacks.
I've got to start experimenting with more filling foods.

I only did cardio yesterday morning. -179 calories

How is it that I always manage to decided I'm gonna start this process the week I start my cycle?

Wow, this is gonna be tough...
But I'm not gonna use it as an excuse this time.
Nope, I'm sure not.

I wasn't good this weekend, at all.
(I said I'd start Monday... haha)
I figured I might as well enjoy it while I can.
I've decided on a lifestyle change so I might as well suck it up.

For a first day, I'm certainly struggling.
My lunch was good but it dang sure didn't feel me up.
I used 2 slices of turkey, 2 slices of tomato and some mustard and wrapped it up in 2 leaves of lettuce. I don't think I could eat it every day but it's something new I know I can tolerate.

The only thing holding me over is I'm going to a friend's house for dinner and she's making chili that I don't know is how unhealthy so I'm trying to save as many calories as I can...

I want to try WeightWatchers.
I just don't want to pay for it.
Can someone tell me how many points I can have?
And where I can get the points book thingy?
Please and Thank You!

I got onto myfitnessplan.com to make calorie counting easier.
It put me at 1200 calorie diet, which I have done before.
I want to lose 2 pounds a week.
I did it while on Alli, just not sure if I can do it without.

I am taking some pills, but I doubt they work...
Simply because I've taken plenty of different ones and only had success with Alli. But anyway, after this bottle I don't think I'm gonna take anymore. If I start eating healthier and not trying to cheat I'm hoping to be more successful.

I do have a helpful situation at my hands.
I've been noticing a certain someone staring at my GUT when we have a conversation. Hers is not any smaller than mine so I am bound and determine to give her something to look at! ugh

I got on the scale for the first time in about a month.
I was fully prepared for it to say "FATASS!".
But it was much nicer than I expected.
I was glad to see that I hadn't gone over my highest weight.
Yes, I know it's very close.

Starting Monday I will use this blog to keep count of all my calories and exercise.

I've got to learn how to stay on the wagon this time.
Lord knows I've fallen off EVERY time.

Join me in my journey, feel free to leave any helpful tips.
