Breakfast:

2 pieces of whole wheat toast
fresh fruit (honeydew/grapes/melon)
coffee with fat free half and half


I didn't too bad last night considering I normally do an Oscar night pig out...steak, scalloped potatoes, sourdough rolls and red wine. I made chocolate chip cookies for dessert and ate 4...maybe 5

A lot of nutritionists (and the Body-for-Life regime) advocate having a "cheat day" once a week - some say one meal can consist of anything you want whereas others say your entire day can be one big pig-out.

The purpose of this cheat day is two-fold - if you`re eating very healthy all week, working out, etc and you`re shedding pounds, your body might shift into starving mode - i.e. start converting your intake of foods into fat - but by consuming a large amount of calories on your cheat day, you're basically telling your body that it`s not starving and it will metabolize as per the norm.

Secondly, denying yourself treats for too long can of course lead to binges down the line. But you`re less inclined to do so if you can eat to your heart`s content once a week.

It's almost one-thirty and apart from 8.37 million cups of coffee, I have behaved myself. I ate the lunch I described earlier and it was lovely.

Then again, it's only one-thirty.

I had half a slice of danish. It was teeny tiny (less than 1/4 a slice), but my stomach was eating itself.

Breakfast: oatmeal
Mid-morning snack: fat free yogurt
Lunch: Reduced fat PB & Jelly sandwich, mini-carrots

Then came the teensy danish, but my stomach was growling and it shouldn't have been! All of that should have satisfied me up till then.

We get lunch at my work on the last day of the month and I'm too poor to pass up a free lunch! So I had a veggie sub from Jimmy John's (not my favorite place either ). I also had the chips and cookie that came with my sub

I'm starting my healthy eating right now! I made veggie fajita's for dinner

I think I'm going to do that Special K plan, at least for a week to jump start things. I can already tell a difference from working out like I have, but yeah...

Dinner last night: Spring mix-type salad with chicken and cheese. Probably too much cheese, but at least it was a salad. Nothing after dinner!

Breakfast this morning: Golden Grahams (okay, slipping a little), 2 cups of coffee (so far).

I went out for 2 20-minute walks yesterday with the walking team at the office, but I don't know if I'll go out today...there's SO much freakin' snow and the parking lot has not been plowed.





























Heh, plowed.

Today I had my branflakes, orange juice and a slice of toast, lightly spread with margarine

Then I went for a nice long walk with my Dad for about 40 minutes, it was snowing, I was really cold.

Came back drank some water and ahd a banana.
I am just finished lunch which was carrot and lentil soup (the only weight watchers thing we own, it's so tasty) and a slice of whole grain bread.

Dinner is chicken, jacket potato and a selection of veg: courgettes, carrots, brocolli and mangetout
Slow and steady wins the race.

I've only had coffee today so far - about seven cups. I've not had time to stop and eat (which i'm sure is what had wreaked havoc on my non-existent metabolism in recent years) but we're having steamed salmon and steamed vegetables for dinner.
I walked home, so it was a good two miles.

I'm needing to cut back on my coffee intake, I think. I do drink excessive amounts of it, and I need to stop substituting it for meals. It's just force of habit.

Where will your body get the energy to lose weight if you're not eating?

I can't drink much coffee, I have no more than 2 cups in a day. I can't do without food, I just get too hungry and eat junk if I don't eat proper meals during the day.
