OK, confession time. I had a horrible food day yesterday! I was stressed about a daycare issue and I ate to deal with it. I have no idea what all I ate. Let's just say, I was out of control.
I WILL do better today.

I am excited about one thing today - my blood sugar this morning was 170! What an improvement! I am just about dancing about that.
I wish I were dancing about my food from yesterday. I really struggled. Big Time. I nibbled here, I nibbled there. Not good. I wanted to eat so much more than I did, so I just went to bed before I did some real damage. I ended up going over anyway, about 300 calories over.
Question for anyone who reads this... How many calories are you eating per day? I was told by a friend, who is a nurse, that I am eating too little (1600 max.). That is the same amount of calories I was eating when I was on WW, just converted to Points. I know from years and years of dieting that to lose a pound I need to have a 3500 calorie deficit from either eating less or exercise. So, if I eat any more, I would only lose 1 pound every other week. NOT COOL.

Yesterday was a tough one for me. I did well for breakfast. I had the Smart Ones Ham and Egg Scramble. It was tasty, but there were some tough pieces of ham.
It was a exhausting day at daycare - one of my babies hasn't pooped in FOUR days. He was a cranky little guy. Poor baby. So, around lunch time, he had me up and down for the better part of two hours. This is usually when he naps, so my lunch (spaghetti w.meat sauce) sat in the microwave that whole time. Needless to say, it wasn't the best it could be.
The preschoolers also had spaghetti and I found myself nibbling on theirs as I walked by. I tracked it though. It was about a quarter cup. New rule for daycare food: Put it away immediately after serving!
I did catch what I was doing, though, and got out some celery and carrots to snack on. When I got to my lunch, the pasta was clumpy. Not really appetizing. So, of course, since I obsess about food, I wanted MORE. So I ate veggies. I ended up snacking on those the better part of the afternoon.
For dinner, I had salisbury steak w. mac and cheese. It was fulfilling, because the fam had mac and cheese, too.
I ended with TWO skinny cows (because I COULD lol) and a choc. pudding.
Calories for the day 1450.
To work on: Emotional eating. That stress from the afternoon kept me eating all day. After dinner, I still wanted to eat whatever I wanted. Thankfully, it was low-cal stuff.
Pre-Breakfast BG: 218. Forgot bedtime medication.
P.S. It would take 22 hours for my video to upload. So I may just do a weekly video blog on SP!

Good morning! It is day two of my Lean Cuisine diet. I am also calling it my DIY Nutrisystem diet. I am in the process of uploading my first video to Youtube - that was fun to make!
Yesterday, I had good numbers! I ate 1350 calories, and my carbs were also under control. I don't like the look of my fasting blood sugar (210) this morning, but I will work on that as I get better.
So, for breakfast I had waffles with turkey sausage. For lunch, Spicy Asian shrimp with noodles. For dinner, Sweedish meatballs with noodles. I also sauteed some spinach to add extra veg.
For snacks, I had a Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich, and later a sugar free Jello.
YAY! No late night over eating!
Have a great day everyone!

It is one rainy Monday morning in Indiana! I don't know what is going on with our weather; it's insane.
Anyway, I am excited to start a new week. My hubby and I talked about weight loss programs over the weekend. I spoke wishing we could afford Nutrisystem - it's about $300/month, btw. That is NOT an option. Then I thought, hey, I can make my own Nutrisystem. It's called Lean Cuisine. I can do that! Way cheaper and tastes good.
My calories and carbs would be all spelled out for me. I can supplement it with fresh fruit, veggies, salads, and low cal snacks.
I know I may not do this all of the time - the sodium count is too high for that. But, I need to get my portions in control and this might just be the way to learn.
