It's a quiet Sunday here in S. GA. I am happy to report a weightloss of 3.5 pounds today. Yay! I'm so pleased to be below 230, and now seeing 225 on the scale is very lovely! I haven't been eating too many carbs and haven't been overeating a whole lot. My stress at work seems to be robbing me of my appetite, or I'm just so busy, I don't have time to eat. I AM eating my boiled eggs every day plus cherry tomatoes, but many times I come home and I haven't eaten everything in my lunch box so I save it for the next day. I like snacky things for lunch because I often work at lunch and snacky things don't make a mess or take up a lot of space.
I often come home starving though! We eat at Sonny's on Mondays, and I usually get dry ribs, broccoli, and cole slaw. I cook on Tuesdays and it's usually something one-dish like hamburger helper which I fortify with the addition of onions, celery, and mushrooms. My strategy when I eat this is to mind my portion. Wednesdays I eat at church and eat whatever they serve. They give very modest portions and there's always a salad so yay me! I cook on Thursdays or we go to Waffle House where I eat omelets or scrambled eggs. I often give the hashbrowns to my daughter and the toast to my son if I have a great big omelet to satisfy me. We "fend for ourselves" on Fridays and I might eat 2 of those skinny whole wheat bagels you can buy these days along with Weight Watchers cream cheese or sandwich meat. All bets are off on the weekend, but today at Ruby Tuesday, after seeing my weightloss on the scale, I had a huge salad with many many leafy greens. Yummo!
Hope all of my Spark friends had a good week and were able to adhere to their eating plans and exercise programs. I personally don't like to exercise. It's a failing that I have, but to compensate, I try not to be too sedentary by cleaning up, folding clothes, or going to Wal-Mart and walking around. At work, I teach, so I am NOT just sitting at a desk all day. I honestly come home physically and mentally drained most days from all the activity and drama. I do like beach walking or hiking (not to strenuous of a terrain but I can go for several hours when I DO hike). Speaking of moving around, being on a computer is definitely a sedentary activity. I really have to curb my time with the computer!
