So this weekend was decent, I did pretty well.. But I did work so it was a little out of whack at times.. I am probably not posting EVERYTHING I ate, bc it's hard to remember now...
Coffee, nature valley granola bars, and watermelon
Coffee, nature valley granola bars
Choc PB oatmeal with banana in it. YUM.
Lunches- I tried to be carb heavy since I am still trying to do the no-carbs after lunch thing.
Pierogies (4) They really aren't that high in cals!
Dinners: Most all were low/no carb.. Sunday was a little tough
I got some broccoli and cottage cheese, and scarfed that down at work quick - we were SLAMMED BUSY. no time for pictures of that.
Then we took a break and I had another almond berry chicken salad from Wendy's.
Screwed. I was planning on having my salad with vinegar, some cottage cheese, and my watermelon over the course of the work night, and buy some tomato soup that they were supposed to be having in the cafeteria... Got there, no tomato soup to be found.. just cream of mushroom. BLECH! So I ate what I had (not the watermelon) and I was still hungry.. I waited 20 minutes to see if I would be full, but I wasn't.. So I went and bought a bag of popcorn.. devoured the whole thing over the course of the night, AND a crunch bar. :(
Lack of snack packing leads to lack of judgement on food choices! :(
2 scrambled eggs with a slice of cheese
and some cottage cheese
I had some watermelon, a couple hershey bliss's over the course of the weekend, maybe a couple bites here and there... could be worse! I am still even with my weight from last week, so that's pretty good for a weekend at work. I will do good tomorrow for my last day before weigh in for the BLC challenge!!
Speaking of which, for our challenge this week we are asked to blog our plans for the break.
After we get back from vacation I am planning on starting up the 30 Day Shred in the mornings.. I'm not looking forward to it but I have completely fallen off the workout wagon and I am really struggling to get back on!
I am going to try to incorporate more protein into my dinners, and try to stick with the no carbs after lunch. Maybe when I plateau again (which is inevitable) then I will do the Fat Smash detox again to shake it up.
I must continue with my water. Even on days off!
Keep going with the food blog- it does keep me accountable because there are times when I think 'do I really want to disappoint everyone by eating that?' And I do the best when I am at work, I can make better choices when it comes to lunch, usually.. but I am running out of things to have that have carbs in them to keep me going the rest of the day!
I admit though, that the challenge took up a lot of time, but it did get me more involved again in Spark, so that's a good thing. The thing I have the hardest trouble with is keeping up with everyone and posting on the challenge threads.. Theres just not enough time in the day for me to do everything I need to do to lose the weight, and also have time to read what everyone writes and then have time to write back AND do my food blog! whew!
I am going to do the SAC challenge, which is like a 'layover' challenge to keep me going and moving during the break, but it doesn't have posting requirements, so that will be a HUGE relief!
And now- I had another leg appointment today, and what I decided is that I am going to get just the metal bar leg, and have my friend paint it for me! But I am going to get a removable foam cover to put over the metal bar (like the leg I have now) just for the times when I am wearing pants and might be around people I don't know and not want to have to explain my whole story if they see that the pants are twisting around my leg, or when we go out dancing or something.. And I will use my current leg as a back up for going to weddings or something where I want a 'nice looking' leg, and I will get a 'skin' put on that one to make it look more real. It's nice to have a variety! haha.
So I took a picture of my metal bar leg, and it's not finished yet, the white part won't be showing, it will actually be part of the painted part though, and I am going to cut off some of the black sleeve on the bottom so it can help show off the paint job! :)
Ok all, that's enough for tonight! Whew, this took forever! haha
Back at it tomorrow! :)
