FOOD – 1622 Calories
I’m frustrated that my calories are so high today, because I feel like I did pretty good, and I only ate when I was hungry. So I’m ignoring the number today.
Breakfast 8:30 am – 250 calories
1/2 C Oatmeal & 1 T Nutella
I went to the Go Red for Women American Heart Association Luncheon at work today. The lunch was awesome and healthy and they always have great a great speaker and goodie bag! Plus, we had no food in the house and a grilled cheese sandwich on dry bread wasn’t sounding so appealing.
I guessed on my lunch calories, which might be why they are so high. It was a healthy lunch (minus the ranch dressing), and I didn’t overdo it, so who knows. But here it is…
Lunch 11:30 am – 792 calories
Salad with (guesstimates):
5 oz Chicken, 3 T Ranch, 1 T Feta, 2 T Craisins,
1 T Honeyed Pecans, ½ Wheat Roll with a smidge of Butter,
& a Dove Dark Chocolate Almond Candy
Accompanied with ½ Strawberry Mousse with
Strawberries & Whipped Topping
(sorry the pictures suck, I need to learn how to use my camera)
I skipped on the Fat Tuesday buffet and had a healthy afternoon snack that was in the goodie bag from the luncheon!
Snack 2:30 pm – 140 calories
Kashi Trail Mix Granola Bar
As I mentioned, because I didn’t go grocery shopping this weekend, there wasn’t anything good to eat at home. So after work I grabbed the list and went to Sam’s. I started getting pretty hungry there and knew that I wouldn’t make it through Wal-Mart next without buying junk food if I didn’t grab a snack to calm my hunger. So on the drive from Sam’s to Wal-Mart I ate some of the healthy food I had just bought.
Snack 6:30 pm – 150 calories
Hummus & some Veggies
I was hoping I would be able to skip dinner since I knew my calories were pretty much tapped out for the day, but no such luck. I was really hungry by the time I got home and when Sky started eating, I had to make something. I made a pretty wise choice though, I think.
Dinner 8:30 pm – 290 calories
Wrap with 6 pc Lunchmeat Roast Beef,
2 slices Low Fat Provolone, Spinach, Red Onion,
Tomatoes, & ¼ Avocado
I’m not gonna lie, I did add salt to my salad today at lunch, but not too much. I really think kicking the salt habit is helping to keep my swelling down tremendously. And I’m not missing it too bad; it’s just hard of course to break a bad habit.
I also didn’t do too great on drinking water today, probably only 16 oz.
Because of the stomach ache (AGAIN) and the grocery shopping, I didn’t do the abs video tonight. I am going to a Chiropractor for the first time ever tomorrow for a consultation. I have got this one spot under my left shoulder blade that has been giving me hell for years off and on, and it is back because of the running I think (or my terrible posture). Sky is kind of a skeptic, and I’m not completely sold, but I’m going to go hear what he has to say. I’m thinking something is just pinched and maybe 1 or 2 sessions should do the trick because I don’t want this to become a regular thing.

Geez, 11:00 is so hard to hit. I thought I was going to make it by 10 tonight, and it is 11 right now. Good night y’all!
