Day 44 ( tomorrow I go no sugar no flour!!!) 3 things I am grateful for today (Nov 4 2019)

Monday, November 04, 2019

Gosh these time changes - felt it all day yesterday and still feeling it today - but by the end of the week body will have adjusted - think it is my age that is making it more difficult.

Am on the eve of going sugar and flour free - how am I feeling - somewhat nervous but also excited to get on with it.

So how did today go re test drive of going sugar/flour free? Breakfast and supper - great - lunch completely off plan and but know what I would do if this happens again.

Breakfast consisted of
1 protein = 2 hard boiled eggs
1 breakfast grain = did not have was going to save it for supper
1 fruit = 2 orange = one will be for lunch

Lunch consisted of (here is where everything went down the tube)
We were out shopping hubby got hungry so he stopped at -- ready for it - McDonalds! ! !
Big Mac
Regular Fries
Bottle Water
THIS WAS NOT AT ALL ON PLAN. Should this happen again what I will do is go with him, have the water, let him eat and then when we return home have my healthy no sugar no flour planned meal - lesson learned

Supper consisted of
1 protein = 4 oz of grilled chicken with lots of garlic
6 oz of veggy = had 4 oz of snap peas and kernel corn
8 oz of salad = nope not eaten
1 fat = 1 teaspoon butter on vegetables

Overall fell good about it - but I know the scale is showing that I had a Big Mac

Have gotten my new paper journal all ready - set up as follows:

1st page: chart with the days I will get weighed where I will record the weight and a loss (notice I am not going to record a gain ! ! )

2nd page (back side of 1st page consisted of what I want the Doctor to write as per blood work:
**Total cholesterol**
**Fasting Glucose**
**Blood Pressure**
**Kidney Function**
With this numbers am having him put beside my number what it should read so that when I have my next blood work done I can keep a record of how it is improving.

3rd page consists of (I have filled in what my plan is for tomorrow which is suggested when going sugar free so that you know what you are going to eat and can hold yourself accountable)
Breakfast will be
** As I am at my TOPS meeting I won't be eating at usual time but rather at 11:15 when we will eat at Denny's with a friend - our weekly lunch out.**

Lunch will be (at Dennys)
1 protein = Swiss chees and egg whites for the omelette I will be having
6 oz of veggy = spinach, zucchini, squash, diced tomatoes
1 fruit = an orange when I get home
1 fat = the oil that they cooked the omelette in

Supper will be
1 protein = 4 oz grilled chicken with lots of garlic
6 oz veggs = broccoli and corn = 4 oz = going easy because of the broccoli
8 oz salad = spinach, tomato, celery, cucumber
1 fat = 1 tablespoon thousand island dressing (it does have sugar so tomorrow I need to make up one of the dressings from the cookbook)

I will also be including on the paper journal 3 thins I am grateful for

I will also be recording on the paper journal how many steps my pedometer says

Overall I think with respect to food it would a good day for me.

I am looking forward to actually staring this journey but not necessarily looking forward to tomorrow weigh in as I am feeling a bit bloated (McDonalds food will do that to you) but Week 1 of following the plan should be a nice number - hopefully.

3 things I am grateful for today are

(1) grateful that hubby is helping with weighing out the food for me

(2) grateful that I am even thinking of doing sugar free - thinking ahead I can imagine how good I will feel

(3) grateful that we have not had snow yet

My streaks here at Sparkpeople are as follows

Day 39 of blogging my journey re making changes to my lifestyle

Day 44 of logging on to Sparkpeople

Day 44 of tracking all food and water

Day 44 of reading the Bible with husband

Virtual Walk Across Canada Part 1 Port Hardy BC to Port McNeil BC 27 miles = completed

Virtual Walk Across Canada Part 2 Port McNeil BC to Campbell River BC 17 miles = 14 miles completed

    Way to go Marilynn! Sounds like you are trying all kinds of things to get where you want to be. I hope you will go easy on yourself and be forgiving if things don't go the way you first expected. That just means you need to rethink and go at it again. Love that your husband is willing to be helpful.

    Spark On!

    McDonalds - AACK! I keep a plastic baggie in my purse with 1 tbsp of shelled pumpkin seeds (pepitas) and 1 tbsp dried cranberries, just for emergencies like that, so it will tide me over until I can get home, and not have to go off plan. Don't get too discouraged if you record a gain at TOPS today, the McDonald's food is not your friend!

    I'll look at your weight record on the One Year team to see how you did. I just updated mine - my weight is still the same from Friday's weigh-in (222.9, so 223), but it's down a pound from my last weigh-in on the team, so I'm doing okay! emoticon

    You are doing great šŸ˜ŠšŸ‘! I love how organised everything is!!! About McDonald's... My guy loves going there all the time and I have learned that the Southwest grilled chicken salad, together with the dressing pack, is only 360 calories is delicious
