Week 8: Summary

Posted in doctors, eating habits, exercise, Food, health, heart, Pampered Chef, Updates at 11:29 am by way2much

This is the first time I didn’t log everything I ate. Not only did I skip a day, I skipped the whole weekend.

I am disgusted once again.

I didn’t do too badly this weekend.

I don’t remember what I ate on Friday. It wasn’t obsessive. But I did go food shopping and for the most part I was good. I didn’t buy anything I didn’t need and it was mostly healthy food.

Except for the bag of Cheetos.

And pretzels – but they aren’t that bad.

I bought vegetables and fruit.

Saturday I went to my son’s scrimmage game and my in-laws bought me a bagel with cream-cheese. I really need to stay away from bagels, they are too fattening. I had a cup of coffee (regular) in the morning, but in the evening I had a slight problem sleeping.

After my son’s scrimmage, my daughter and I went supply shopping again for school.  We got home and I made pork chops on the grill. We had some mixed veggies on the side. We then went to a friend’s house for a birthday celebration. I stayed until 1 in the morning and I had 3 dixie cups of frozen lemonade (Mike’s hard lemonade). I had a slice of cake and delicious blondies (about 3). So I snacked a bit this weekend.

Sunday, I enjoyed my day at our local town fair. I did not set up a booth this year. Usually I display my Pampered Chef items, but I met a nice group of woman there last year that did the same. I contacted them and heard they reserved a booth again.  I declined – no sense having two booths of the same. Besides, I don’t have any of the new season products to display – yet.

My daughter had to cheer at a 1:30 game. She had to be there at 12:30 but I thought that was ridiculous and got her there at 1. It was a good thing I used common sense as the coaches hadn’t arrived until 5 minutes prior.  So we spent the morning browsing the stands – nice leisurely walk.  I went to the game and pulled her out early (3:30) because she was upset that she only spent 1/2 hour at the fair.

NOTE: She slept over her friend’s house and met us at the fair  She got there at 12 and only saw a few vendors. We left at 12:30 so she can change and get ready for the game. The game should have started at 1:30 but was delayed until 2:00. The girls were not doing much cheering, so it was basically a waste of our time. Therefore, I took her out and went back to the fair.

We did more walking around and we even walked home (approx. 1 mile).  I had a hot dog for dinner. I also had some chips (not much). I had 3 mint cookies before going to bed. I even had a midnight snack finishing 1/2 pork chop that was left over.  I had problems in the middle of the night, feelings of stopped heart-rate, etc. I did have a coffee Sunday morning as well. So I am realizing my problems truly lie with the caffeine intake.

So here I am Monday morning – my jeans are tight, my fingers are swollen and I am congested. I have no drive to do anything – really. I think I am PMS-ing but who really knows.

I have a gyno appt. tomorrow. I will get my daughter to school at 7:30 and go straight to the lab to get my blood drawn (finally). Then I have a 12:00 doctor appointment.  I am dreading that, because she always comments about my weight. Just give me my pap and shut up!

Posted in exercise, Food, health, Meals/Activities, Pampered Chef at 10:49 am by way2much

  • 3/4 cup fresh blueberries
  • fat free milk

SNACKS/BLTs: made my son some tuna fish salad (tuna in water – drained; salt, pepper, mayonnaise, onion chopped with my Pampered Chef chopper!) so I had a bite or two – may have a sandwich for myself later on – but I am not hungry now.

DINNER: no time to cook – but I have no idea what we will have – perhaps I will run to the butcher and get some chops or burgers to grill – for after 8 PM 😦 that is when the activities are over – what is bad is the no time to eat – I could cook, but it is either eat before 2:30 or after 8:00 – I dislike days like these especially the day before school!

HEADACHE: no

Week 7: Monday’s Meals/Activities and Conditions

Posted in exercise, Food, health, Meals/Activities, Pampered Chef, Recipe Ideas at 2:51 pm by way2much

ACTIVITIES:  cleaning up the basement – some things just tend to get out of control

EXERCISE: see above – hmm??

BREAKFAST: raisin bran with fat free milk; blueberry tea

LUNCH: no lunch, late breakfast

SNACKS: cheese, crackers and pepperoni (I really need a nutritionist!)

DINNER: grilling a skirt steak (is that what you do with one of those?) making a salad and doing some kind of a potato thing – more than likely nuking it for baked potato – do I need a veggie? I have none in the house!

NOTE: I marinated the skirt steak for approximately one hour with one of Lawry’s seasonings – and grilled it for 20 minutes – 10 on each side – give or take a few minutes. My kids and I enjoyed it! My husband thought it was too rare! (I would consider it medium-rare; it was pink with a little blood and ooh so tender!)

I seasoned my potatoes (which were diced into 1 inch cubes) with Pampered Chef Basil Blend Canola Oil (delish! – if you want to order contact me! I sell PC!) I added Garlic Garlic and Bacon Bacon from the Tastefully Simple line (I do not sell). I added a bit of salt and pepper and placed in one of my Stones (a la PC!) and microwaved it for 18 minutes on high.  Another winner – kids were asking for more!

Dessert:

DRINKS: water

HEADACHE: no

SINUS: yes, some morning stuffiness

OTHER:some type of heartburn or indigestion

SLEEP PROBLEMS FROM THE NIGHT BEFORE: none

MEDICATIONS:

  • vitamins

Tuesday’s Meals/Exercise

Posted in exercise, Food, Meals/Activities, Pampered Chef, Weight Watchers at 6:19 pm by way2much

BREAKFAST

  • Black coffee

LUNCH/DINNER

  • Chicken gyro wrap
  • french fries
  • black coffee
  • strawberry gelatin

BLTS (bites, licks, tastes – the ones that do you in!)

  • licks of chocolate pudding
  • 1/2 an Oreo cookie
  • (ingredients of a death by chocolate dessert that I concocted for myself for my meeting tonight)

Drinking plenty of water

EXERCISE FOR THE DAY

  • my standard stretches
  • Bowling – is that considered exercise? two games for a total of 20 frames

At my 7:30 meeting I will try NOT to eat anything as I feel so full it isn’t funny.

On a scale from 1-10 with 1 being famished and 10 being sick to your stomach – I rate myself at a “9”. The gyro and fries did me in – and the BLTs were just out of habit!

NOTE: It is NOT necessary to finish everything on your plate. I need to realize that by finishing everything on my plate, hunger will not cease to exist for others. It will just make me a glutton. (I grew up hearing “finish what’s on your plate, there are starving people in *insert country here*”)

********************************************************

UPDATE

Meeting: Will power I have not!

I had a few potato chips and dip – but really not much.

I made this death by chocolate dessert and had a sliver.

I drank a glass of Diet Coke.

Had perhaps 6 cubes of pinapple and cherry.

 

All together, I have no idea what amount of points I consumed by the WW method. But hopefully it was less than 25.
