Weekly Weigh In- Tuesday Edition

Every week I step on the scale and just hope that I have lost more weight and it works! (that and actually sticking to WW)

Weigh in this week: 151.5! Total lost: 13.5 lbs!

Woohoo! I also went on the stationary bike last night for the first time in FOREVER. I got to 4 miles in 30 minutes. Which is great because usually after 10 minutes I die.. weirdly once I got past the 10 minute mark it was smooth sailing and I just kept going (while watching MasterChef- I love Gordon Ramsey)

Hopefully I will stick to eating properly this week because on Thursday I head over to LA for a friends wedding and just may want to go to the beach!

Postponement

After a weekend away at my in laws my weekly weigh in is postponed until tomorrow because I want to weigh in on the same scale every week!

This weekend was a bit much on the eating front. I definitely feel like I am getting way more lax on the weekends just because I am so busy but hopefully this week will show some more lbs down! I have gotten a ton of compliments that I am looking thinner so hoping for the best!

Fathers day I ate:

Huge Egg White Omelate w/ sauteed mushrooms, peppers, onions and some cheese.
2 pieces of smoked salmon w/lowfat cream cheese (I love bagels but they are just not in the cards for me these days)
Reg coffee and then ice coffee later..

Weight watchers ice cream bar as a snack (I did not need this!)

Dinner was a BBQ:

  • 1 Hamburger on a Sandwhich thin 
  • 1 Turkey frank
  • Lowfat coleslaw 


Today's salad was a huge mix of leftover weekend salad:
Spring Mix
Spinach
Canned Corn
Edamame
Diced Red Pepper
Red onion
hunk a hummus
Grilled chicken
Coleslaw


It is so nice outside I just walked around my office for my break!

Weekly Weigh In

This past week was a bit harder than usual because of the Jewish Holiday of Shavuot. A holiday where we commemorate the giving of the Torah by eating tons of dairy food. We were at my in laws so the first 3 meals (Tuesday night, Wed lunch, and Wed night dinner) were controllable. Thursday lunch we ate by my friend where she had made:

Penne A la Vodka
Blintz Souffle
Greek Salad
Spinach Cheese Souffle (lowfat!)

Dessert was a lowfat-ish cheesecake.

Then we went away for Shabbat to friends where food was abundant and I was a snacker  (sad face).

On Sunday I had a somewhat cleanse where we woke up and eating was:

Coffee (obviously)
Egg white omelette w/ sauteed onions, skim milk, spices and topped with a bit of cheddar cheese
Movie theater popcorn ( By the time I got to X MEN (!!) at 6 pm I was starving and 3 cups of popcorn was 4 points so better than chocolate)

Side note: Why do they show how Professor X got in his wheelchair in 1965 when in X Men the Last Stand they show him walking "20 years ago"??? I was very upset by this and if anyone knows where they explain this let me know!

Dinner at 9:45 pm was a Taco Salad made up of:


  • Romaine lettuce
  • Shredded iceberg
  • Avocado
  • Tomatoes
  • Hearts of palm
  • Canned corn
  • Canned black beans
  • Cuke
  • Roasted mini sweet peppers
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
Dressing:
  • Light mayo
  • Salsa
  • dash of Taco sauce
I was trying to avoid gaining back 3 lbs and it (kinda) worked. This mornings weigh is was at 154. Which means I only gained back a 1/2 lb in the last week. So now onto a super strict week!

Weekly Weigh In

So this week I thought for sure I wouldn't lose any weight because I have been eating out a ton. While still trying not to eat AS much as I would have Pre WW (haha looks like Pre- World War but don't worry things are not that serious) I still enjoy my meals out.

I ate out this past week at an amazing Asian Fusion restaurant in the city:

YUMMY Sushi and Crispy Rice Appaetizer

Hazelnut and Coffee Creme Mousse

Caramelized Banana and Crepe with Nuttela inside
Yum!

So even with tasting things like the above last week I still lost 2 lbs since last week! What What! Bringing me to a royal (?!?) 153.5 lbs this morning. I didn't believe the scale but I weighed myself 3 more times and still 153.5 so I guess this thing is working!

We did walk yesterday in the Israeli Day Parade so I probs walked around 3 miles yesterday just wandering.. but I think you can tell a difference in my face? Maybe or maybe I am just psyching myself out:

April 2011

June 1, 2011

Any difference?? Maybe it is in my head after all
Also I have noticed that I am much more in tune with my hunger levels. Like this morning I ate:

9:30am- Coffee with creamer (Fat Free obvi!)
10am- Banana
11am- Watermelon 
Full Full Full
2pm- Lunch:
Base: Eggplant/Parmesan Quinoa
Sauteed Green Beans w/Red Pepper
Roasted Beets w/honey and Balsamic Vinegar

Heres to a week of better blogging and more pound losing!

Bad Blogger

I have been so busy that I have been neglecting my blog.. and I guess my boring food choices have really been holding me back too.

We had a family packed weekend so eating was super difficult eating-wise but there were some good eats that I hope to share some pics of!

Todays lunch was this sandwich:


-Arnolds Bakery Light bread - only 1 point per slice!
-Morningstar Veggie Burger
-Edam Light yellow cheese
-little dollop of balsamic vinegar for some extra taste

As I was eating this I was not so enthused but it made the hunger go away and now I have 20 points left for dinner tonight at my favorite Carlos and Gabbys!
