i thought it be kinda fun to document what we’re eating to stay in shape!. I know I’m trying to stick to a diet and many of you ladies are and I thought it be fun to journal, even if only on our tough days, what we’ve had to eat and what we’ve resisted (though the temptation might be great!). A shared food journal!
So I’ll start…
Today I had 2 hardboiled eggs (breaky and lunch), a handful of almonds, a spinach salad with cherry tomatoes and a lemon vinagerette avec sunflower seeds and 1 baby bell light cheese.
NO COFFEE! (first full day without it) and lots of water. I’ve been staring at the bakery across the street and fantasizing about a cannoli, but I’ve withheld!
Anyone else want to give it a shot?

I use a bodybugg and the program only works if I fill in a food diary everyday so I can keep an accurate count of my caloric intake.
Breakfast: 1 hard boiled egg + wheat bread toast with 1 tbsp. Nutella
AM Snack: Activia yogurt
Lunch: Ham sammie with lite mayo and sweet mustard + Sun Chips

I counted every calorie for over a year. I feel confident now that I can control things & keep count w/o the website. I put on a few lbs during the honeymoon & with the left over cake after the wedding – but I’m starting to get back to normal. I’m a little hungry right now though 🙂
I normally work out for 45 mins of cardio each morning, maybe a little additional work at home on some days & eat about 1500 calories a day.
Gym: 30 mins intervals on the bike, 14 mins stair climber: Cals burned around 350.
Breakfast: 2 eggo low fat waffles w/ blueberries & 1 serving of fat free cottage cheese. (about 250 cals)
Snack: 1 serving goldfish crackers (bad snack planning this week – normally I would have one wedge of laughing cow cheese with 2-3 wasa crackers @ about 125 calories..) the gold fish were 200 cals
Lunch: Salad w/ mixed greens, mushrooms, green peppers, carrots, celery, fat free cheese & low fat ranch dressing w/ 1 serving of unsalted corn tortilla chips & a diet coke (about 400 calories)
I will probably have a 200 cal snack when I get home (hummus & pretzels), followed by a 400 cal dinner (rice & veggies or salad). I’ll probably have a cup of coffee for a late snack w/ a piece of chocolate or a couple large marshmallows (around 50 cals)
That puts me at 1500.
I will probably do about 15 mins on the bike tonight & some housework.
I have about 25 more pounds to lose & this puts me on schedule for about 1 lb a week. So by my first anniversary I will be at or below my goal weight 🙂
