This past week i did pretty good. I did go over calories yesterday and Friday, which is definitely going to show on the scale tomorrow :( but i also did keep up with my morning exercises of 25 minutes bike every working day, and ST 3 times a week. I also did at least 25 minutes of moderate exercising (cleaning and walking at a leisurely pace) for 5 days. I also drank at least my minimum of water, usually a couple couples over, on all days and met my minimum requirement of fruits and veggies. The one thing i did wrong though is had a quizno's grilled chicken cobb salad...now, if you have never checked the calories on these, you would think how could that be wrong...i even remove the blue cheese...but the "healthy" salad w/dressing and flat bread (which, sorry, i just "have" to eat...lol) is 1000 calories... you read that right...i did not add too many zero's...1000...it is soooo good... and...i do get my veggies in for lunch...but so not worth it really for 1000 calories.... at least...not worth it very often... i did however turn down chopetle's on one of those days... so a wohoo for that :)
This week, i am boiling my eggs for easy grab and go...i am baking some muffins...again, easy grab and go...i am also making my Cabbage roll casserole for dinner today, which means easy lunches for the next couple days :) Here is my recipe for this: recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
l.asp?recipe=549778 i double it for lunches the next week...which not only will i eat...but so will my dd2 and my mom.
Helping others eat right works for me...cause it keeps me on track... i pack breakfast now for 3 people in the morning...my dd2, who won't eat if i don't fix it, the other girl in the office and myself...the other girl in the office told me this past week, "if you can't, don't worry about it" my response was "if i don't, i won't eat right" and it's true... why is it so hard for us to just take care of us?? lol...but i know me...so this is what has been working... i not only eat breakfast now...but a healthy one...now helping mom and dd2 eat healthy lunches gives me the perfect excuse not to eat fast food every day... i save money and eat healthy...it's funny to think that i can actually save money by feeding more people... but with the proper planning...i am...
so this week...let's all plan to succeed :)
