2011-12-30 04.21.152011-12-30 04.22.002011-12-30 04.26.572011-12-30 04.42.062011-12-30 05.51.18

  • oatmeal and egg whites
  • super salad
  • carrot cake protein bars
  • protein pudding
  • vegetable soup with turkey
  • 100 calorie popcorn
  • 3 carrot
  • 3 handfuls of Beer nut mix Sad smile

these are the containers that I drink my water in daily, I have a glass of water with my breakfast, I take the plastic travel cup with me to work and refill it all day from the 2 liter jug. This way I know I have gotten in all my water. I count my morning coffee creamer along with my Crystal light as 3 WWer points every day.

see ya tonight Open-mouthed smile

New for 2012

I haven't done a challenge in forever... so here we go :)

Spring "Chick" Challenge 2012

Commit to a NSV (non scale victory) to be assessed at the start and the conclusion of the challenge: Mine is going to be a 10K the challenge goes from 1/2/2012 through 3/19/2012 (wow, that's short... I better get busy!!)  

Commit to a set of nutrition parameters: I will post daily pictures of my daily notebook, showing All OF MY FOOD FOR THE DAY... YES ALL!!

IF you are on maintenance and do not really track. What nutrition goals do your have?
Tracking, tracking, tracking is the way to maintain!!

How many calories daily or weekly? I don't do calories, I track using the old WWer point system. My goal is to keep it between 21-23 points a day

How much water will you drink daily? 3 liters every day

What items, if any, will you limit? processed foods, I want to keep my diet as clean as I can

Commit to a set of exercise parameters: Gym twice a week, cardio 4 times a week. Rest one day a week

Commit to blogging at least twice weekly; This is a no problem goal :P

Check others blogs and comment as you feel motivated to do... okey dokey

so does this mean my bad food choices are forgiven today? Smile with tongue out

Back at it :)

I feel so much better when my eating is on track Smile 

2011-12-26 05.06.112011-12-28 04.24.272011-12-28 04.25.062011-12-28 04.25.262011-12-28 04.26.022011-12-28 04.26.28

I did have some popcorn when I got home but other than that I was spot on

  • egg whites, oatmeal
  • carrot cake protein bars
  • Fage with coconut extract …. major YUCK!! Confused smile
  • salad with egg whites
  • protein pudding
  • vegetable soup with 3 ounces of turkey

I was looking on Calorie count and turkey is going to become my protein of choice over chicken, it is leaner and has less calories and as long as I can buy an entire turkey breast …. humm maybe I will buy 4 or 5 this payday and freeze them??!!

I looked back at my post on 1/1/2011 and I have not put more miles on my treadmill, BUT I joined the gym and I have been working out twice a week so I am fitter than I was 12 months ago, so it’s a wash Open-mouthed smile 

random thoughts pinging away inside yee ole cranium this morning

protein pudding and oatmeal and egg whites

this is all good, BUT we had the Christmas buffet and there were killer green beans, I ate about 4 big helpings of green beans. Last year I did the same (folks in the city stores know how to cook!!!) I am sure they were boobie trapped (too much butter or something evil and delicious!!)   they were wayyyyy to yummy!! but give me a break they were green beans!

I came home last night, washed my face, brushed my teeth and went to bed… exactly in that order… I did not pass go, I did not collect $200 Smile with tongue out 

I was a tired tired gal! but I feel refreshed this morning Open-mouthed smile ………… like do any of you even care about this nonsense? You can tell I am not a “professional” blogger Disappointed smile

Not good
Oh so not good
Largest number I have seen in MONTHS!!!!
Too many bites
Not enough true tracking
The Beer Nuts snack mix never seemed to make it onto my tracker!
Do I somehow think if I don't write it the scale won't find out?
Silly girl
Diet is 80% exercise is 20%
or something like that...
Sometimes I get those percents confused
Like my sweating time gives me permission
To eat
Silly girl
I have been MAJOR stressing out over a conversation I need to have
Get over it girl
The only person that thinks I am Super Woman is me!!!
Silly girl
I think I am going to make a 2012 list
Not resolutions
A "too do list"
Personal, fitness and financial
I do well with lists
I am going to be hitting the diet hard for these next few days
I want to start 2012 off in my comfort zone
When I stress, it affects my sleep
I don't.....
4 hours last night
Okay ....
Here I go, off to sweat off that Beer Nut snack mix
At 3:45 in the morning
Yeah, I am nuts!!!

Later guys :)
