Day One-Hundred-and-Eight

I’m still sad about my weigh-in but I’m trying to put it behind me. I’m in control of my life and what I eat and how much I exercise and how I feel.

What I Ate Today:

Breakfast (250) For breakfast I had a smoothie: one cup of almond milk, one banana, and one cup of frozen fruit.

Lunch (570) For lunch I had some of the leftover Mediterranean Chicken with a small apple.

Snacks (0) No snacks today.

Dinner (1,180)  Oh the siren song of Chipotle called to me once again and I had a carnitas salad with guacamole (no rice or beans). And I had some chips.

Exercise

Today I tried to go to the gym (I swear I did). But when I got there I’d forgotten my lock. And then I couldn’t find a spot to work out. So I just did a U-turn. Mama said there’d be days like this…

Day One-Hundred-and-Seven

Weekly Weigh-In:

I weighed myself this morning and I am holding steady at 153 lbs. Man, I’m disappointed! Next week my goal is 152 lbs. But that all depends on my eating and exercise for the rest of the week. So I’m going to try very hard to keep it together.

What I Ate Today:

Breakfast (250) For breakfast I had a larabar and a nectarine.

Lunch (821) For lunch I had the final serving of Spicy Linguini along with a small apple.

Snacks (221) It was so hot last night! After dinner my husband and I took a walk and got some fro-yo. Thank god for fro-yo. 

Dinner (578) For dinner I made Pork Stir-Fry with Asparagus and Sugar Snap Peas and man was it easy and delicious. Stir-frys are the best! I also had a grapefruit.

Exercise

Dinner (841) For dinner I had another glass of wine and 3 fish tacos. I do not feel proud of myself today.
