Well, I have been MIA for a week. I started working last week, and just completely blew off SP. I tried to track a bit on and off, but failed miserably. I tracked today, and I work my first 3rd shift tonight! 11 pm to 7 am - I am totally going to be all on a weird sleep schedule! I walked 2.1 miles today and attempted to do the "30 Day Shred" a few minutes ago. I did 5 minutes and stopped. I ate something I shouldn't have eaten and I think it threw me off.
I have this addiction to butter-cooked, home made hashbrowns, onions, eggs, and cheese all mixed together. I ate that earlier. I could not resist. I *DID* track it, though. Usually that is the point which I blow off the tracking. I have been better about tracking unplanned foods, compared to my usual long, long fall off the wagon.
I still want to do the food and fitness blog. I think HELLO118 has it right: it is best to track it all in the blog AFTER the day is already over! I never know what unplanned things could happen between 5 pm until bedtime. At least, for me!
If I stick to what I tracked, I will be in my range for calories. High in sodium, but well, tomorrow is another day. Who knew cheese had so much salt in it?

I think HELLO118 has a great idea in having a food and fitness blog daily. I think it will help keep me accountable. So, here we go...
1 cup Kashi GoLean cereal with 3/4 cup fat free milk and 1 small banana (297)
3/4 cup whole wheat Velveeta 2% ultimate macaroni and cheese (230)
1/2 Joseph's Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat flour pita with 1/2 cup diced celery, 1/8 cup diced onion, and 2.5 oz Starkist Chunk Light tuna in water; 1 cup whole wheat Velveeta 2% ultimate macaroni and cheese (457)
1 1/2 cup sliced no-sugar-added pears (120)
1 serving of Lowfat Cheeseburger Pie (made with ground turkey), 1 12-oz Coors Light beer (437)
Totals: 1542 calories, 194 g carbs, 35 g fat, and 107 g protein, 76 g fiber, and 2839 mg sodium (ouch!)
FITNESS: None. Tomorrow is another day.
Will be watching the sodium for tomorrow.

I usually flounder on the weekends, but I went to the grocery store the other day and stocked up on fruits and veggies and healthy chicken breasts. I feel totally ready to take on the weekend! I am going to have some people over for dinner tonight, but I have it all planned out. I am going to make Kraft Garlic & Herb shake n' bake with the cheese topping for them, and mashed potatoes with macaroni salad and broccoli. I, on the other hand, will be able to convincingly eat the same thing with my own portion of chicken (sans cheese) and a baked potato with a dollop of light sour cream on it, and broccoli. I am also going to have a glass of wine (ooh, real excited over here!). Will be guzzling water!
I feel so motivated lately. I think it is from the consistent exercise. They say exercise busts depression, and they may be right! Plus, it helps to be feeling good that I have completed a workout. Today I am going to take a long walk, brisk pace. I am not going to do the Shred today; my husband is home, and I know it's weird, but he wants to watch me do the thing and I am all about avoiding that!
Well, I hope you all have a lovely weekend! Stay strong! It will help keep me on track knowing you are all doing so well!

I am motivated! I got up at 8, and did my workout video, "30 Day Shred," level one. I did it pretty well. I also completed the same workout yesterday. I am 2 for 2! March is here, and I can't believe it is a new month already!
I am feeling good. I planned out my food for the day, and I can't wait to get more success under my belt!

I weighed in this morning, and I maintained my 3 lb. lost for another day! I ate a bit over 1600 calories yesterday, but since I got up so early, I know my pattern is to eat more on those early-morning, sleep-deprived days. Today is another story! I am SO motivated! I am on my way down, and I feel like I can really do it! I am eating more veggies, drinking more liquids, and feeling good.
AND... The job I interviewed for called me back! I am going in today to do paperwork and get rolling on working. I feel like I am practically in! YAY!
