Sunday Update

Goals:

1. log food every day M-yes T - yes W - yes Th - yes F-yes S-Yes S-Yes
2. keep calories between 1400-1600 M-1530 T-1480 W - 1750 Th - 1612 F-1730 S - 1200 S - 1250
3. exercise on my lunch hour at least twice 1 done

Calories too low again today but it's still too hot to eat. I think I'll throw some nuts on top of my ice cream snack to get it up to my lower target.

I am giving myself a big gold star for being the first person ever to not take seconds on my mom's potato salad.

Didn't get to the pool today, either. I've been feeling a bit run down. I hope I'm not coming down with something!

Mike, I'm sorry about your friend, too. So sad...

Claire, that's quite a calorie deficit. Congrats, but are ya hungry? Maybe such a huge deficit is what's making you feel run down? Feel better soon!

Donna and Mike, thanks for your kind words. My new avatar is from a pic taken a couple years ago, but I do wear my hair just slightly longer now and with my bangs just above my eyebrows. I changed my avatar because my face in this picture looks like me now--a few years older and several pounds heavier than my old avatar. I figure if I'm going to show my face, I want my pals to see the real me.

Donna, I combine my fruit and veggie goal since a registered nurse told me I can get the same nutrition from veggies as I do from fruit. Cholesterol 465? Is that a typo? If not, what did you eat? I'd kill for a McDonalds Quarter Pounder with Cheese and a big bowl of ice cream right now BUT I'm gonna be good and stay on track.

RenewedSoul, wow!!!!! Too bad we don't have a prize for the best report this week. You'd win hands down!!! I wanna be like YOU when I "grow up."

Kocialapcia, well, way to go on the exercise! That's wonderful. 1000 calorie deficit for the week is better than 1000 surplus for the week, so give yourself credit for that.

Joanna, congrats on your accomplishments this week. Sorry about the storm. If you don't get it in, you'll know you had good intentions.

Robin, well done on your goals this week. Bears coming after garbage in the city! Yikes! Best wishes for a good outcome of your five hour trip to the specialist for your son's eyes.

Mel-Mc nice job this week. Aw, that's a sweet tribute to your mom on her potato salad. My grandkids tell me I make the best grilled cheese sandwiches but a monkey could probably do that. LOL

I did fine on my goals today but didn't log my food into the nutrition tracker. I know I'm fine on everything except protein, which may be too low.

Mern,

One of these days I'll update my pics. I just rather be on the the other end of the lens. Speaking of, I snapped this one of Mytsie today.

Well, It's only about a 1500-2200 cal per day. I think it's allergies.

  • Calories Avg. < 1400 /day: 828, 2041, 1414, 2003, 1772, 1605, 1459: 1588
  • Cholesterol < 200mg: 43, 184, 200, 97, 193, 465, 98: 182
  • Vegetables > 3 / day: 2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 2, 2: 2.5
  • Protein > 50 g / day: 17, 78, 80, 43, 53, 81, 74: 61
  • Sugar < 50 g / day: 86, 79, 59, 88, 68, 60, 30: 67
  • Workout > 150 min/wk: 15, 20, 40, 0, 0, 65, 65: 205
I was hoping to make 4 of 6 goals this week, but only made 3 of 6. I knew there was no way on the sugar or calories, but I could have done better with the vegetables. Oh well, maybe next week.

Mern, 465 not a typo the high cholesterol value on Sat was mainly Guyere Cheese (2.5 oz -> 298 mgs Cholesterol) plus 166mg from smoked beef brisket (7 oz). Still averaged out pretty well over the week.

I'll hope to get back to my 'normal' eating pattern starting ... now.

- D.

I was so happy this morning when I stepped on the scale. I lost 5 pounds this week, which makes 40 pounds gone, since I changed my life to healthy actions. The only thing different that I did was added baked sweet potato and spaghetti squash in my diet but stayed with the same calorie intake. I am definitely going to keep them in!

Week's goals:

1. Stay under 1,200 calories daily Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes
2. Log in everything I eat or drink Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes
3. Behave and do not eat anything that goes against my vegan diet on July 4th; only drink water Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes! Yes, Yes, Yes
4. Follow the goals above and do not mess up once this week on them Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes
5. Lose 2 pounds or more: Yes -5 pounds
