    Great weekend! Yep, those nuts can get you! Especially if they are sitting out. I keep mine in the refrigerator. I keep a mix of almonds and walnuts that are an important part of my diet but I have a handful and it's enough. If they were sitting out, I'd fall into grazing on them. Which is fine as long as it's not mindless; and your snacking is not! WTG!

Day 52 Accountability & Weigh-in

Saturday, February 25, 2012

Friday --

Weigh in day for my Spark Team. I'm down 1 pound from last week. Had it not been for the trail mix episode last night, it might have been more. I'm grateful for the 1 pound.

emoticon1 - Exercise - 20 minutes on elliptical, 40 minutes upper body circuit training, 15 minutes stretching.
emoticon2 - Calories - 2340. We went to the VFW fish fry for dinner. I ate french fries, fried cod, an oatmeal raisin & a chocolate chip cookie - which put me over for calories, fat, and salt for the day. They did have a baked fish option, which I also had some of, but that fried cod was sooooo good! Ooops, forgot that I had a Cosmo, had to add 300 more calories to the day! That's why I don't usually drink. I'd rather eat my calories!
emoticon3 - Water - 9 cups.
emoticon4 - Sleep - 6 hours.
emoticon5 - Freggies - 1 fruit, 5 veggies.
emoticon6 - Blog

    Nice job Nancy! Down one more pound....amazing! I attribute my weight loss to the blog for sure. I thought about being accountable and said it out loud to many as I passed up on treats that were offered to me...they thought I was nuts! I agree with you that I would rather eat calories than drink them...you have a great week!...Jane

Day 51 Accountability

Thursday, February 23, 2012

Thursday --

emoticon1 - Exercise - 90 minutes Pilates/dance class.
emoticon2 - Calories - 2074. Trail mix at the church meeting again, only this time I didn't eat as much. Thank goodness there is only one more meeting of this group! I tried chewing gum during the meeting. That worked well. But at the end of the meeting, I took the gum out of my mouth and thought I'd just have a handful. Turned out to be more than one handful. I'm guestimating that I ate 3/4 cup = 533 calories and 33 g of fat - half the day's allowance of fat in a couple of handfuls! I have to admit that trail mix is a trigger food for me and just stay away from it. There was air popped popcorn there to choose from. I could have eaten that as a healthier alternative.
emoticon3 - Water -10 cups.
emoticon4 - Sleep - 6 hours.
emoticon5 - Freggies - 1 fruit, 5 veggies.

    3/4 cup of trail mix = 533 cals
3/4 cup of air popped popcorn = about 30 cals...
It's not fair, isn't it?!!
Great job on your other goals!
And congrats on this week's weighin, you still did great!!

    It's a good day when you've admittedly identified a trigger food! Won't be as easy to indulge next time! I know it's hard, I have a whole list of things that I know I just can't have one. All high in sugar, fat or salt; not essential to a healthy diet. I indulge on occasion; but, not mindlessly. Neither did you, congrats! You can balance out that treat and only you can answer if it was worth the calories. Sometimes it actually is.
Hugs.
