A Terrific Tuesday!

August 14, 2013

After spending over two hours spewing on my blog yesterday, it was time to put myself to work. After canceling with Jamie, my trainer, last week, I was looking forward to getting back at it!

In order to eat like he says I should eat, I’ve determined it’s best to eat at 7:00 am, 10:00 am, 1:00 pm, 4:00 pm and 7:00pm. This won’t work everyday, but at least if I have some guidelines, it helps.

Here is what I found in the fridge at 7:00 am……

Needless to say, I ate nothing. So much for plan A.

At 10:00 am, I did remember I could cook up some oatmeal and add my PB2 powder so I could get something in my tummy before a workout!






Greek Yogurt with PB2

I did get to the store and I plan to cook up lots of chicken breast, then individually freeze them so I will have no excuses for a while to not get in plenty of protein!

Refresh…I can eat 26 points a day.
I can earn Activity Points by doing exercise, and eat them if I choose.
I have an allowance of 49 points that I can dip into if I chose.
I should drink a minimum of 6 (8 oz) glasses of water each day.

The food I ate and it’s PPV

Breakfast = Oatmeal, PB2, Coffee with Milk (6)
Lunch = Mixed Greens, Grilled Chicken, Salsa, Light Sour Cream (6)
Snack = Whey Protein Shake with 1 T. Chia Seeds and Frozen Berries (4)
Dinner = Applebee’s Parmesan Grilled Shrimp (Minus some of the rice and sauce) (8)
Snack = Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt with 2 T. PB2 (4)

Total = 28

Today’s Exercise……

Workout with Trainer
Walk 4 Miles

How many glasses of water I drank today = 10
Activity Points Earned Today = 6
Activity Points Earned This Week = 24
Remaining points from my 49 Points Allowance = 27
ALCOHOL consumption = zero

I made this goal sheet SEVERAL months ago. I have one copy inside my pantry and one copy in my exercise room. My goals have changed just a bit, (I try to exercise 6 days a week, I aim for 12 or more glasses of water, and I am definitely NOT drinking 1 day a week) but my “Obstacles” and my “Why” remain VERY much the same!!

I realize that when I DO reach my goal of 150, this will still be my life in order to maintain. The Healthy lifestyle is just that, a Lifestyle, but it will certainly always have some challenges!
