Oh man.....to weigh 240 again would be nice. I should start journaling here again. That might help me to be accountable more. In the year I've been MIA from here I gained 30 pounds. My current weight is 269. But I have started a new regime this week to get me butt off the couch and eating better too! I'm cutting out all the sugary crap and the processed stuff. If I stick with more whole foods and do some exercise, this weight will come off. I just can't let myself get discouraged and slack.

So far this week has been good for me, overall. The past two days have been less than ideal, but it shouldn't spoil the good I did the rest of the week. I am planning to hit the gym today and maybe even go kayaking. We'll have to see.

Tomorrow morning is my weigh in day after my first week on the new regime. I need to get back to posting my food and exercise on here. It helps keep me accountable for what I do each day.

Sunday, May 3, 2009
Breakfast: banana smoothie
Lunch: burritos (meatless soy "beef", homemade salsa, vegan sour cream, lettuce, and vegan refried beans wrapped in a tortilla)
Dinner: spring rolls with ginger soy sauce

Exercise: 4 hours today at the lake! The lake has a track around it, so I walked, jogged, and kayaked. It was a fun day!

I was hoping for a larger loss, especially since the scale was showing me 267 on last Wednesday. I guess those two days of eating a lot did mess me up more than I thought they would. I am hoping that some of this is water retention, as Aunt Flo is visiting this week though. Here's to a more productive week with fewer screw-ups!

Breakfast: leftover burritos
Lunch: apple, Mexican rice and beans (mixed together)
Dinner: leftover burritos, soy milk

Exercise: 3 mile "Walk Away the Pounds" DVD

Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone! :) Pity I've sworn off alcohol as part of my new regime or I'd be having me a margarita tonight!

Breakfast: leftover burrito
Lunch: roasted potatoes and steamed broccoli in a "cheese" sauce, a handful of dried cranberries
Dinner: spring rolls, banana smoothie

Exercise: Today was a day of rest. The only thing close to exercise I did today was my dishes.

I just feel strange today. Energy-wise, anyway. It's hard to explain, but everything feels like it's buzzing. I hope this doesn't mean today's going to be weird.

My office is holding a contest called "Shapt It Up." It's basically an activity contest. We are in teams of 5 and each mile we walk/run/swim, etc. counts toward the team total. For acvities that cannot be measured in miles, every 20 minutes of activity counts as a mile for the team. As of today (middle of week 3 for the contest) my team is in 4th place with 213.75 miles! Not a bad haul for the 5 of us! But, the first place team has 340.5 miles so we have to step it up a notch to catch them.

Breakfast: Boca burger, chips
Snack: orange
Lunch: salad (lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, and carrots) and a small baked potato
Dinner: veggie dog, tomato soup

Exercise: 1 hour of "deskercise"

Morning snack: banana, handful of dried cranberries
Lunch: salad (Romaine lettuce, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and my homemade raspberry vinaigrette dressing), chips and homemade salsa, peaches

Today was a great day! I got out of the house and did a LOT of walking, which is good. I got to go see the local high school's production of "Bye Bye Birdie" and had a great time. :)

Breakfast: organic bulghur wheat hot cereal, soy milk
Lunch: "chicken" nuggets, steamed broccoli
Dinner: steamed green beans and carrots, mashed potatoes

Exercise: 5 mile walk with my husband!

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! :) I hope you all have a great day!

I think I am finding that I am slipping back into the habit of eating more processed foods. I've had lots more Boca burgers, veggie dogs, and chips lately. I have to cut that out and eat more whole foods.

Breakfast: banana smoothie
Lunch: Boca burger, mashed sweet potatoes with Earth Balance on them
Dinner: 2 veggie dogs

Exercise: I rested today.

Well, today's the official weigh in day. My weigh in last week put me at 271.2 pounds. This morning's weigh in put me at 266.2 pounds! So that's a loss of 5 pounds last week! Hooray! The loss so far is at 5.4 pounds! :)

Image

Here's to another great week!

Breakfast: banana smoothie
Lunch: salad (lettuce, cauliflower, carrots, and homemade raspberry balsamic vinaigrette), strawberries, peaches, a handful of dried cranberries
Dinner: Mexican pizza (I took 2 tortillas and fried them in oil. Then topped one with refried beans, TVP, and salsa. I put the other tortilla on top and added vegan sour cream, more salsa, green Tabasco sauce, and lettuce. I sliced it into 4 slices with the pizza cutter, and there you go! Mexican pizza!)

Exercise: 40 minutes "deskercise"

I slept like a rock last night! It was some of the best sleep I've had lately! I am off from work today, so I am hoping to have a productive and fun day.

Breakfast: Mexican pizza, soy milk
Lunch: pasta salad, mashed sweet potatoes
Dinner: Boca burger, tomato soup

Exercise: 1 hour of Wii Sports (in my shape, that boxing game gets your heart pumping well!), 2 hours of MAJOR house cleaning (like scrubbing sinks and showers and stuff)
