Weekend Food Blog & Weigh in #2

Tuesday, March 01, 2016

This weekend was a lot of good choices sprinkled in with some not so good. I ate pretty well all week and I worked out 3 times so the scale was kind, thank goodness. Oh well, at least I know what not to do next weekend.
Oh and thanks to TORI_2_POINT_0 for the not so subtle reminder that I had to post my weekend food blog, lol.

Food Blog

Friday - Lent version (no red meat or chicken)

Breakfast: Rich packed me this delicious breakfast. 2 hardboiled eggs, cherry tomatoes and a pumpkin seed cheddar flat bread (didn’t eat the turkey bacon. It was Becca's lucky day.) I also drank coffee (not pictured).

Lunch: Taco salad with lettuce, tomato, corn, beans, pumpkin seeds, cilantro dressing and tortilla strips. I also had a mango.

Snack: Apple, string cheese and trail mix

Dinner: McDonald's filet-o-fish sandwich medium fries with ketchup and a diet coke. This is what happens when I don't plan and hunger strikes. Ugh! I bought some vegetarian frozen meals to keep in the fridge in case this happens again.

Exercise: None. Booooo!

Total Calories: 2,090 (Well that McD's meal put me over. Oh well. I'm stocked up with frozen meals I can eat for lent so this shouldn’t happen in the future.)
Calories burned: 0

Breakfast: Coffee obviously. I also made a breakfast burrito with eggs, black beans, cherry tomatoes, hot sauce and cheese in a whole wheat tortilla.

Snack: Chocolate low carb mug cake and a cup of almond milk. I was craving something sweet and found this recipe online. It was a total fail so I won't even share the link. It was dry and all I could taste was the stevia. I still ate it though. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Lunch: Not feeling that hungry so I snacked on some Skinny Pop popcorn. Then later I had a TJ granola bar

Dinner: Chicken salad with lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, chicken, avocado, black beans, pumpkin seed cheddar flat bread and peanut vinaigrette dressing.

Snack: Apple and almond butter

Exercise: It was a nice day in the high 50's so I took Becca for a 1.5 mile walk

Total Calories: 1,820 (Pretty good!)
Calories burned: -270 (Pretty good here too)


Breakfast: Woke up starving and went out for breakfast. Coffee, eggs, bacon, hash browns, sausage and it also came with pancakes that I drenched in syrup.
This was not the best way to start my day. Again, this was because I didn't plan beforehand what I was going to eat at the restaurant. Usually I choose ahead of time and don't even open the menu which is what I will keep doing since it works.

Snack: Skinny Pop popcorn and 2 cuties

Lunch: Chicken enchiladas with refried beans and sauteed bell pepper

Snack: Mango. Yummmmmm

Dinner: Craving lots of carbs. Probably from my less than stellar breakfast. Made bow tie pasta with 2 servings of veggies, chicken, roasted garlic marinara sauce and parmesan cheese.

Exercise: None, unless binge watching the entire first season of Fuller House counts.

Total Calories: 3,492 (What the truck! This is not acceptable. Sunday is my free day but that generally means 2,400 calories not almost 3,500. This is cray cray!)
Calories burned: -0

Weigh in #2 Restart in 2016

Starting weigh: 232.6
Last week's weight: 230.1
Current weight: 228.4 (-1.7)
Total loss: -4.2 lbs. (so close to a 5 pound loss and my first reward a pedicure which I'm in dire need of especially with spring around the corner.)

Well I definitely know what I learned this week:
