So it seems that nobody took a single picture of me at that wedding so I don't have any to show you. Too bad. I looked good. (just imagine it, slim yet strong, sexy, perfect hair, perfect makeup, tall - hey if you're just imagining, it might as well be perfect right?)
Well if anyone had the patience to follow all my posts for the last few days you've gone on quite a roller coaster. First I'm telling you to eat more, them I think I eat too much, then I realize it's just too much bad things, and the whole time I've been going on about how I figured out the protein thing and eating clean, blah blah blah. Well now I'm eating some humble pie. Sorry folks. I'm not as big of a know it all as I thought. I just act like one. But no, I'm not going to stop!
It's working for me. I am glad I figured out my calories and nutrient breakdown. But I'm not going to do some major overhauls. I've realized my fat is a little high and my protein a little low. For those meals. I still think in general my eating is pretty good. Except when there's a million pieces of pizza that I don't want to "waste". anyway, even this bad eating is working for me. I think that it's more like my exercising is cancelling out some of the bad eating. I'm losing again baby! I'm not going to tell you a number and jinx myself for this friday's weigh in, but it should be good news.
food today:
vanilla mini-wheats measured 1 serving, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup strawberries = 250 cal
snack - flavoured soy nuts = 150 cal
lunch - cucumber sandwich with fat free mayo and cheese whiz = 200 ?
yogurt (50), ff pudding (90), pineapple (75), homemade granola bar (150) (I just couldn't stop eating!) = 565 - not so bad...
snack - apple (100) pear (100) maybe more soy nuts if I don't think the full will last.
supper - corn on the cob (hopefully it's not moldy), the rest I don't know, hubby's not going to be home so it can be "girl" food. But I might eat at the mall with my sis when we're shopping after work. I'll have a fibre bar to keep me full. (150)
So supper will probably be 500ish calories plus 150 = 650
TOTAL: 1815 It seems to be consistently hitting that 1800 mark. Supper may be less today and I don't know if I'll eat an apple, pear and a fibre bar between 3 and 6 o'clock. So it might hit down about 100.
Any thoughts again? I was actually really suprised that my fat was so high yesterday (well not because of pizza, knew that). I buy fat free everything, milk, yogurt etc. And I thought I was going to have a problem of not getting in enough healthy fats. But even reduced fat PB has lots of fat still right? I may have been too lazy to adjust some stuff in fitday. I hate putting in food they don't have so I try and guess with something similar. oh well.

Randi, One thing I do know (and I don't know much) is that you can't this journey is full of surprises and learning. To keep moving, you have to keep evaluating how you're body works. Hell, if I'd known that before I wouldn't have put 50 lbs on in less than 10 years:0
You're doing great. Keep up the good work. And I know what you mean about adding new foods. Although, http://www.superstore.ca/east/2367.aspx may make it easier for you.

Awww, I don't think you're a know it all - I just think you're compassionate enough to want to share all that you know with the rest of us. :o)

Have a great day!
