yup - that was my total for yesterday. it was very tempting to leave it out altogether, but i added everything in on the nutrition tracker.
meals? not so bad. snacking in the evening? horrible -
Laughing Cow Original Cheese, 1 serving 50
Triscuit Thin Crisps (15 crackers=1serv), 0.5 serving 65
Frosted mini-wheats cereal, regular, 2 cup 347
Milk, 2%, 1 cup 122
mcdonalds hot fudge sundae, 1 serving 340
whole tortilla snack, 4 serving 340
100 cal snack pack cookies, 1 serving 100
dark chocolate, 2 oz 118
Nabisco Wheat Thins Crackers, baked, 0.5 serving 75
triggers? i was tired. i really wanted chocolate. i had that dark chocolate early in the day - and had been working around those calories. if i'd just stopped at mcdonalds on the way home and had that hot fudge sundae my snack total would be much less - as most of that was eaten at night.
this morning i went to walmart and bought a few boxes of those really yummy slim fast snack bars that taste just like candy bars - i have a box of the ones that are like baby ruths and one box that is like butterfingers. an even smarter alternative. next time i have a craving for chocolate - i'll have some chocolate, instead of trying to just distract myself with way too much other stuff.
p.s. that is two separate bowls of cereal - not one humongous one! ;)
p.s.s. 1129 for today!!!

well hell - 4 years ago when i first joined this site my goal was to lose 30 pounds. and today? my goal is to lose 40 pounds. doesn't say much for my weight loss efforts the last 4 years. actually, i did really well - till i didn't. then i didn't for a long time. then i did really well for awhile - till i didn't.
somehow this time i need to make the do really well stick. so far i have done ok. 4 weeks of really well, and 1 week of sort of ish not so good ate a few things i shouldn't have and didn't quite get all my exercise in. i did catch myself though - yesterday i did the LS 5 mile dvd and today i did the walk down to the lake, around, and back up to the office at lunch time. calorie-wise i did really well the last two days, too.
hopefully having to log in here will serve me well. because yesterday when we pulled out the bins of summer clothes - guess what? not a heck of a lot of mine actually fit.
ok - the weather is nice, i am feeling good, and i can do this!

i'm at target today with my SO, birthday shopping for our grandson, and i remember that i am out of lotion. fortunately, we were right by the lotion aisle when i remembered this. i walking down the aisle, and some new oil of olay lotions catch my eye. i like their stuff.
three bottles - one green, one pink, one purple. the pink one is body creme of some kind, the purple one is a jojoba cream. the green one is lotion. i usually like thick better than thin (very dry skin) so i try the pink one first. flip open the lid, squeeze a little bit out (i know, i know, but i have wasted so much money on lotions that turn out to be too thin and leave me dry and itchy), and rub it in on my hands. really thick stuff - takes some work to get it all worked into my skin.
decide to try the jojoba - squeeze some on my left arm, same thing - takes a bit to work it all in. i've got that one pretty much elbow to wrist. decide there's not much difference in the feel between the two, so i get the pink bottle.
we go on through the store, and my skin is really staying kind of tacky. thick and creamy is one thing, but i have to get panty hose on my legs after i lotion up after a shower, so i eventually decide to put it back. go back to the lotion aisle, and decide that in this case, maybe a little thinner would be better, so i take the green bottle and squeeze some on my right arm. the lotion kind is just as thick as the other two - but i get it worked into my skin (again, pretty much elbow to wrist).
glance once more at the bottles, thinking damn - those sounded so good, and notice a few little words i hadn't seen before.
body wash. they are all three of them body wash combinations. body wash and cream, body wash and jojoba oil, body wash and lotion.
i lathered up quite well when i went into the bathroom and target and rinsed off my hands and arms - up to the elbows i lathered up
my hands and arms are nice and soft, though!
