Jumping right in!

weight on 1-6 was 211. I don't have a real weight goal right now, but being able to wear my wedding ring (probably 20 lbs) is a good starting goal. DH joined Lifetime Fitness as a Christmas present for the family, so I took advantage of that tonight. I am a fast food junkie but I have been working on breaking that habit. I also love Dr. Pepper, but I am trying to move to diet when I do drink it, although I am also trying to limit it. Honestly, if I just cut out the junk and constant eating I should drop weight.

Breakfast: yogurt with banana and grapenuts
water

Snack: cup of hot chocolate with whipped cream

Lunch: handful of McD's fries (pretty good for me, I didn't get a burger as well)
1/2 chicken breast

snack: turkey dog (0 fat) on wheat with mustard
handful of popcorn

dinner: 1/2 chicken breast

cup of skim milk

:)

I knew that I shouldn't make the breadsticks because I have a hard time not eating them all, but my ds loves them so I made them mostly for him. I did manage some self control as there are some left for tomorrow. I really am bad at eating for comfort and that is a habit that I need to stop. Right now I am trying to brush my teeth a lot (can't stand the taste of anything other than water after brushing my teeth) and cleaning something when I feel like comfort eating. My house is a lot cleaner!

Thanks for the encouraging words.

Thursday 1-19

Breakfast: English muffin with one egg (fried with a tiny bit of olive oil and red onion) and a slice of cheese, milk

Snack: Diet DP and 2 graham crackers (I have decided that trying to break my soda habit is too much right now, so I will drink mostly diet and work on dropping sodas later)

Lunch: pasta with chicken, corn and onion, tossed with fat free Italian dressing, steamed broccoli (I eat it plain), 1 breadstick, water

snack: 1/2 banana, 5 or 6 strawberries with about 1 T of grapenuts ceral, milk

dinner: beef stroganoff (whole wheat pasta), 1 biscuit, green beans with tomatoes, 1 raisin cookie, water

snack: 1/2 chocolate chip cookie (thanks to my hubby who brought one home for me- I shared it with the kids) and milk

water consumption today: 64 oz. I decided to track my water w/o trying to reach any sort of goal and I was surprised at how much I drank

no exercise today- again I decided that it was too much to try to do all at once, I need to get my food on track better and exercise when I can before making regular exercise a goal.
