Wed, 03-01-2006 - 6:45pm

Starting point: 211
Current weight: 184
Loss of 27 lbs! Woo Hoo!

Goal: ?????????

3-1
breakfast: homemade French toast (whole wheat bread, egg, milk & cinnamon fried with olive oil), with syrup, skim milk

snack: one graham cracker with pb&j, diet DP

snack #2: We were out at lunch, I got the kids some McD's and got us a fruit & walnut salad to share. I got to eat about 1/4 of an apple and most of the yogurt there (small amount of yogurt)- the kids got the rest!

lunch #1: 1 c chile ole with cheese & fritos

lunch #2: salad with fat free honey dijon and a few croutons
(I want to try splitting my lunch in two for a while- I have been feeling very full at lunch, then very hungry in the afternoon. I am hoping that by splitting my regular lunch into two small meals it will help.)

dinner: 6 meatballs, 1/2 cup brown rice prepped with a little country crock & salt, steamed broccoli

snack: planning on some shrimp with cocktail sauce! Maybe a pudding cup, too. Not sure.

water: 72 oz

exercise: am- 30 minute tv workout
pm- 30 minute video

I did one of my new videos today. It is Leslie Sansone's Walk & Kick. She does intervals of walking mixed with intervals of kick boxing. I LOVE it. It is very much like the other video of hers that I have (2 mile high calorie burn)- but adds in the kick boxing. She makes it so simple to follow and I really worked up a sweat. She is just so easy and fun.

3-2

breakfast: fried egg with cheese on whole wheat English muffin, skim milk

snack: 1/2 cookie (I know! I know!!!), diet DP

lunch #1: shrimp with cocktail sauce, 1 whole wheat bread with a little fat free Miracle Whip & cheese, diet DP

lunch #2: salad with turkey, few croutons, fat free Honey Dijon, 1/2 orange

snack: 1 tortilla with guacamole (this is what I get for going to the grocery store in the afternoon- I was hungry or had the munchies, not sure which, and bought guacamole)

dinner: 6 meatballs, 1/2 c of brown rice with country crock & salt, asparagus with tomatoes

snack: planning another tortilla with guacamole- that stuff doesn't last long so I need to eat it within about 24 hours of first opening- I am the only one who will eat it, too. No more guacamole for me for a while after this is gone!

water: 72 oz

exercise: wasn't able to do my morning exercise :( I had to clean for company & worked up quite a sweat doing that!
planning a 30 minute video as soon as dd is in bed- maybe I will do extra, but no promises! :)

I did one of my new videos tonight. It was a Richard Simmons 50 minute workout- a lot like his original Sweatin' to the Oldies, but I like the original one better. This one was good- a good aerobic workout. I decided to try it b/c it was longer than my usual workouts. I am glad I did. :)

The guacamole I buy is from the deli so there isn't a nutrition label on it. It does have ingredients- avocado, onion, tomato, lime juice, salt. I checked on Fit Day and according to them avocado (1 c) has 22 grams of fat and 235 calories, guacamole (1 c) has 24 g of fat and 271 calories. The entire container I get is about 1 cup and I have been getting four tortillas with guac out of it. Still a lot of fat! But avocado is healthy fat, right? And it does count as a vegetable? Guess I am trying to rationalize my guacamole habit here! But knowing those numbers will help me to limit how often I get it, that is for sure!

Yes it is healthy fat, but it still has a lot of calories.
