Jan 26 – Food Journal

Friday, January 26th, 2007

Here’s my food for today:

1/2 cup Stonyfield Plain Organic Yogurt and 1/3 cup blueberries 1.5 pts
Kashi Chewey Honey Almond Flax Bar 2 pts
4 Whole Wheat Pancakes with sugar free syrup 5.5 pts
Chicken Tetrazzini 5 pts
Sargento Mozzerella Cheese Stick 1 pt
Cherries 1 pt
Carraba’s Plain Salmon – 1/2 portion
1/2 cup Plain Cavatappi 2 pts

I decided that I am not going to have the bread with olive oil tonight to try to limit my carb intake.  Wish my luck on that one.  Bread is my weakness, especially when there is something yummy to dip it in.

Dedication Paying Off

Friday, January 26th, 2007

So my rededication to my diet is paying off so far.  I am looking forward to going to Weight Watchers on Sunday and getting an official weight.  I do have some challenges until then.  Tomorrow is a trip downtown and most likely a trip to the Cheesecake Factory.  Ouch!  I will try my best to make a healthy decision and watch my portions because I don’t want to blow my weigh-in on Sunday.  It isn’t worth it.

Jan 25 – Exercise Journal

Tonight I did Tracie Long Training’s FIRM Your Core with Susan Harris.  Coincidentally Susan also led the workout I did with the FIRM yesterday.  This one I really enjoyed.  I burned about 176 calories, but considering the workout really focused on the core and my bum was really sore from my run yesterday it was still a REALLY good burn.  I can’t wait to see what I do with this workout next time.
