Counting Backwards Day 36!

Thursday, July 12, 2012

This has been another good day. I started off with a SP yoga video I hadn't done before and continued my major house clean-out. Took stuff to Salvation Army so there are no boxes sitting in my bedroom. Discovered that my Italian ice place has added sugar-free, woohoo.

303 breakfast
342 lunch
118 snack #1
390 dinner
141 snack #2

1295 total

I tried a SP menu suggestion for dinner, oriental rice. I didn't have peppers or water chestnuts, so added mushrooms instead and used brown rice, not white. Husband and I both thought it was really good. I didn't tell him a serving was half a cup!

    You are doing great with this countdown challenge. And, I know what you mean about husbands/serving size. My husband would probably have the same look yours would if I mentioned it!

Counting Backwards, Day 37!

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

Another really good day! I treated myself to a stability ball awhile back and used it for the first time today with a SP video. Fun! I could do everything.

I'm not thrilled with the new fitness tracker. What happened to the individual strength training exercises? I liked being able to add one or make up a workout with them. I also find that looking up videos isn't as easy as you'd expect. I type in exactly what the video is called--and get far too many options that have nothing to do with what I did. I do like the calories burned part, but that doesn't appear to apply to the videos.

Back to today's count:
314 breakfast
326 lunch
157 snack #1
421 dinner
158 snack #2

1376 total

    I wonder where you can send feedback to help them when making future changes to the site??

Another great day in your calorie intake -- when do you weigh in??

Counting backwards, Day 38!

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

I've had a good day. Slept well after being on the run all day yesterday, will go to bed early tonight too so I can catch up. I got a lot of cleaning done, dropped off stuff at a thriftshop, and took newspapers to the church.

For exercise, I tried a longer video today and looked for opportunities to get in extras such as calf rocking while putting gas in the car. Those minutes add up!

I've had good meals all day. I had chicken salad on pita bread for lunch and baked salmon with rosemary for dinner. Good totals today! Haven't had snack #2 yet, but it's planned. I like SP's idea of microwaving peanut butter and adding to shredded wheat.

340 breakfast
343 lunch
158 snack #1
400 dinner
147 snack #2

And counting backwards...Day 39!

Monday, July 09, 2012

Very full day on the run. It's 3:30 now and I'm a bit over on cal so far; will have to adjust later. Proud of myself - got up early to get in a SP video before dashing out the door for 8 AM pollworkers' class. I'll be so happy when the DVD I won gets here! So far:

351 breakfast
425 lunch with mom
285 snack #1, not enough protein for lunch
181 dinner
158 snack #2
1400 total

I did it! What I ate when got a little skewed, but at the end of the day, I am comfortably within range. This is really good. I've convinced myself I can do it again on especially challenging days like this one.

7/10 oops. Forgot to add the glass of lemonade I had with snack #2 @ 131 cal.
Total 1531, 6 cal over. Don't care; it was still a really good day.

PS: I figured the cal on my own lemonade, and it's 30 cal less than the SP listing! So...I WAS within cal range!
