Subway sandwiches...not always what they seem...

Thursday, December 05, 2013

Went to subway thinking I was doing myself a favor...boy was I surprised after the fact that I ate a whopping 1000 calories, and 37 grams of fat!!! That was for a 12 inch honey oat chipotle sandwich....

Well, sad to say, I have learned my lesson!! Just because it's chicken, doesn't mean the other stuff is good for you!! That's what I get for five bucks right?!

Next time, I will not let my hunger get in the way, and the sale get in my pocket book!!

    I was surprised when I checked the website for Subway. A 6" sub is about the limit and you have to pick and choose with that! emoticon

    I like Subway, but I do go to their website and figure the calories of my sandwich. There are some sandwiches that are very high in calories for a foot-long.

    Subway is tricky and at best you can only get away with something like a turkey sandwich on wheat, lots of veggies and hold all the cheese, mayo, etc... I love Subway but you definitely have to be careful. Actually, somewhere on their website, they have all their nutritional values listed so you can plan ahead. Hard lessons... Oi... !!

Hump day happiness

Thursday, November 07, 2013

I made it through hump day pretty well. I stuck to my plan, and felt I went to bed a winner.

I looked for the camel, but never did see him!! LOL!!

I hope everyone has a terrific Thursday!! emoticon


Feeling psyched...

Wednesday, November 06, 2013

Have you ever felt like today is the day? I will accomplish everything I set my mind to? I will get through the day without dying because I didn't have that cookie, that I won't die if I don't go to McDonald's, or somewhere else that is fast food?

Well, that my friends is my day today. I feel like I can get through the day without going out and getting my fast food, and that I will be ok with that. With that being said...I was a gal that likes me some fast food. There is a Mickey D's across the street, and two other grab n go's right next door. In fact, they put a back door to this chicken place that is butt up against the parking lot at my job....(btw, they are delicious...). So, today, I brought my breakfast to work, my lunch as well, AND...(drum roll please....) my snacks. I will get through today.

I am not looking at tomorrow, as there is enough grief in its own, so today is what I focus on. It makes things easier for me. I know it may sound a bit silly, but after all the heart aches I have had in the past for not meeting lofty goals I had made for myself, I think I like this approach much better.

So, today, I stand proud. I have met all my goals I have set for myself so far today. My work day is half over, and I still have my lunch to look forward to.

Feeling I will be strong when I get home for dinner too...In fact, I made a spark recipe...salsa chicken. So...I got today covered!!

Feeling in the game today. How about you? How do you feel? Is it game on? Cuz, I am ready to play!! emoticon emoticon

    What a great post today! I can feel your motivation and excitement to do well. That's all it takes, a positive attitude and some attainable goals. I love that you're only looking at today and nothing else. How great it is going to feel at the end of your day today and you can see that YOU DID IT! After a few weeks of days like this you'll look back and think, WOW! It all adds up! GO YOU! emoticon

Picking myself up again.

Monday, November 04, 2013

In July, I was feeling sorry for myself. So, what did I do? I fell off. I quit logging, I quit caring, and that was frightening. I don't know what I was thinking. Through all of this I now realize something. I am only hurting myself. I CAN do this. i WILL MAKE IT. I know it is harder because I am older, and so overweight. I will just have to make my goals smaller, and more achievable. Is there anyone out there that will help me along?

I don't have any "real" friends, so, the more support on here that I can get, the better.

So, what do you say? I say, yes. I can. I am.

  Yes you can do it! I'm struggling with the same type of issues you are too so I know it's hard but keep pushing through.

Good luck!!

    You're right, You CAN do this! Believing it is the hardest part and it sounds like you're ready to go. ;) Taking things in smaller portions is sometimes more doable and less whatever you need to do to keep yourself in the game. I'll be here with you the whole way if you want me's a long road and always better with friends! emoticon
