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!

I exercised yesterday, and even though I had two normal sized glasses of wine, which put my at 1610 or so calories, I still feel good. I was hungry when I got up (AT FIVE AM) to register for classes. I even stopped at McDonald's and got a Fruit & Yogurt Parfait. I love those sugary things. It is so rich! I can't believe how creamy low-fat vs nonfat yogurt is. I like my fat free, though! It is less caloric. I am having a friend come over today and she will be my exercise buddy. I think that will really help me out.
Today I planned out my day and my calories are 1390. It is hard for me to stick to my calories when I am tired and awake so early. It gives me more hours in the day to be awake and therefore, around food. Wish me luck!
