One Week of Accountability- Day 1

Saturday, August 18, 2012

Ok, I'm definitely still in a funk. I haven't lost any weight in months. Granted- I'm happy that I haven't gained either. But I need something to kick me back in gear so I'm going to try blogging for a week.

Today I started my period (thank God- sorry to the guys) so I'm happy the PMS is over. That's my worst time.

I really want to go for a run or a walk but I just don't feel like it. I thought about it and thought about it some more. It's just not going to happen today. It's gloomy and it just feels like a lounging around day. But I'm definitely going to go for a run tomorrow morning.

I'm eating low calories today because I ate way too much yesterday. So far I have had a piece of toast with an egg on it and a smoothie. Tonight I'm going to grill some salmon and make a delicious wrap. I found these bran, oat, wheat wraps (Joseph's Lavash) at Wal Mart and I'm obsessed with them. They're huge and the entire thing is only 100 calories and they're high in fiber. There's so much you can do with them. Sometimes I crisp them on a skillet and make them crunchy. Sometimes I use them to wrap up brie and fruit. Anyway, tonight I'm making a wrap with one of those, some salmon, bell peppers, and half of an avocado.
I'm only going to have around 1000 calories today since I ate so much yesterday (in addition to what's on my tracker, I also had a margarita and kit kats- it was not a good food day:-( The PMS was really bad this month. But starting tomorrow I'm going to try to increase my calories a little bit to see if I can avoid the "binging" or over-indulging that I seem to do too often.

Today I am 160 lbs- 3 lbs up because of my period.

    I give myself a "cheat" day once a week. I don't worry about how many calories that I eat that day. The rest of the week I stay within my calorie range. I've lost anywhere from 1/2 to 4 pounds that way depending on how much I exercise during the week. emoticon

    I'm suffering from "foggy brain" today, too. My in-laws are coming over to celebrate my birthday..... but I'm just not in the mood. I hope next week we're back on track.

    Those wraps are awesome! A little on the thin side but if you use the whole wrap I guess it would hold everything in. They're huge and being diabetic, I've only used half of one before.
    They are really low carb and full of healthy fat!

    I sure hope the increase in calories will kick start your metabolism to lose some more weight. Thanks for sharing about the wraps, they sound good and at a reasonable calorie count.

    I find myself in a similar situation today. Yesterday I was out with the wife, daughter and her fiance', so first we had a big breakfast, then lunch at O's, then my wife made ribs for dinner. Even though I didn't pig out, it still ended up over 3000 calories. So now I got to cut back a bit every day until I make up for it. I won't go cold turkey though, I just skim off a 200-300 every day for a week.

    Anyway, it sometimes can get out of control or surprisingly higher than we think, that's why I love to measure and track. You can do it, Keep the faith.

    Your food choices sound delicious. I think eating enough to stay satisfied will help you.

    Good idea to blog and stay accountable. You will find what works. Keep experimenting.

    Sometimes I find eating a little more, esp. starting out the day, helps me. Sometimes if I don't eat breakfast or don't have enough, I get off track way too easily and have "junk" - good plan you have, hope it helps you!
