Less Stress Today

…but not so good eating habits.

 

Today I woke up late again because it took a while to wind down last night, so no breakfast and no lunch prep.  I had the same thing for lunch today as yesterday.  I had half a bag of blue corn chips and half a pound of spinach dip. For dinner I had a Boca burger, skinny bun, 2 tablespoons of Ricotta cheese, a slice of Swiss cheese, 1/2 cup of Portabellas and onions, and two cups of steamed vegetable medley in butter sauce.

This week is about getting portions under control, and learning healthier habits. I hope by next weigh in day it will have had some result or at least maintained weight instead of gaining.

Snack: 2 bananas

Indulgence: medium blueberry sundae from DQ.

No Breakfast

I woke up late today and didn’t get enough sleep.  So I didn’t eat breakfast, which is really unfortunate, because it truly is the most important meal of the day.  So by the time lunch came around I was famished. I had a not so good brunch.

Breakfast-nothing

Lunch-half a bag of blue corn chips, half a pound of spinach dip

Dinner- two bananas, Boca Burger, fried mushroom and onions in olive oil, 1 slice of Swiss cheese, two tablespoons Ricotta, 1 skinny bun, 1 cup Greek yogurt, 1 cup strawberries, 1/2 cup blueberries

Banana Pancakes

Banana Pancakes

I’m working on doing Weight Watchers Simple Start on my own and will be adding some products from the “It Works!” program soon. I’m focusing on getting my eating under control before doing exercise. I made what seemed to be a simple recipe for banana pancakes, into a 45 minute ordeal that eventually involved whole grain pancake batter, some soy milk and egg…they still didn’t turn out, but I managed to get two that were mostly edible. So I wont be doing that again, lol.

Weight: 265

I was hungry all day today, so I drank a lot of water. It helped a little, but not a whole lot.  I wasn’t famished, but I didn’t feel satisfied either.  Most likely because looking back at what I ate today, I consumed a lot of carbs. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
