My ever-exciting Food Log – Tuesday

Image

 

Breakfast
Light English muffin with 1 tbs natural PB
Large apple

Lunch
2 C Spaghetti Squash Pie (spaghetti squash, ground turkey, low fat cottage cheese, part skim mozzarella)
1/4 C chocolate chips

Dinner
1 C Vegetable curry with 1/2 C white rice
2 big ol’ handfuls of Ruffles

Exercise
Treadmill speedwalking – 40 minutes (Tried to run and still can’t.  Sigh.)

Verdict
It’s sad how I’ve let junk food come into my life in such a big way.  Chocolate chips and Ruffles??  Really?  These are things I usually don’t even keep in my house, but I have them left over from Thanksgiving and they were calling my name all day.  They are going in the trash tomorrow.

What can I say? I’m weak.  And this is why the weight is not coming off.  Even when I’m staying within my calorie range, I know I am one of those super unlucky people who really has to eat the right foods, not just the right amount of calories… or it just doesn’t come off. So again… I’ll try harder tomorrow!  At least I’ve tracked two days in a row now, right?

Monday’s Food Log

In my attempt to get back in track with tracking this week, here is my food log for Monday (boring as it may be):

Breakfast
2 scrambled eggs
Large piece of sourdough toast
Lunch
Vegetable curry
3/4 cup cooked white rice
Snack
Big handful of Trader Joe’s dark chocolate covered pretzel thins
Dinner
2 French dip “cupcakes” from Emily Bites
1 serving Caesar salad (from a light Caesar Salad kit)

Exercise
20 minutes stationary bike + 15 minutes elliptical

Verdict
Did well on calories today, but not so great on nutrition. Need to work on that tomorrow!

Back to Tracking

Wow this is embarrassing to admit, but I guess if this blog is supposed to help keep me on track, I have to be completely honest.  I just looked back into my “My Fitness Pal” food tracker app, and the last time I tracked a whole day’s worth of food was all the way back on….

SC20131201-193456

October 28th.

Ouch.

And we all know what starts happening when you don’t track.  Bad, bad, very bad things.  Like you eat chocolate chip cookies or DQ blizzards for dessert.  And donuts for breakfast.  Stuff I never do when I track — because I don’t want to see those completely empty calories staring me in the face!

So here’s my commitment for the week.  This week I will track every morsel of food I put in my mouth.  And I’ll post it here, too, for extra accountability.  Like I said a couple posts back…. I can’t let this holiday season ruin me.  I just can’t.
