I wish I had a dollar for every calorie I consumed at lunch..

I actually ended up at Chipotle for lunch, because my friend Fredy wanted to go there. I debated eating the whole burrito, and ended up devouring it in about 15-20 minutes. I don't feel gross though, like I usually do after eating a huge meal.. Plus, my uniform doesn't feel like it's about to rip open. That's a good sign, I think.

We went to Landmark mall afterwards and walked around. Fredy got a milkshake from Chic-Fil-A, but I was way too full to do that, and I'm glad that I didn't want it. That would've meant I consumed like over 2,000 calories in less than an hour. Not good. I probably had like 1100-1200 calories just from Chipotle. But, I didn't eat a morning snack, and I'll probably be too full to eat an afternoon snack.. so it kind of balances out.. (I hope).

I'm going to try and drink a bunch of water this afternoon to flush my system! I'll let you know how it goes..

Not Bad

I lied about lunch. I got a craving for Panera, and so I went there and got the You-Pick-2, Frontega Chicken Panini and Broccoli Cheddar Soup. This is starting to become "the usual" for me. I was super satisfied and full afterwards, so I didn't eat anything until last night around 9:00 pm. I had beans, rice, avocado, crema, and some cuajada cheese. I got full quick from that too.

I also had a rootbeer, which was 160 calories.

I must not have done too bad, because I weighed 247.4 lbs when I got up today. At least the scale has moved.

I've eaten a 140 calorie bagel with a little bit of cream cheese and diet Cranberry Juice for breakfast.

I'm contemplating Panera again for lunch, but we'll see what the boss (mom) says. Haha

I Gotta Refocus

My afternoon snack yesterday was a blueberry scone from Panera.. It was very satisfying, and 440 calories, as well (ahem..)

Dinner consisted of Domino's Pizza. I had 1 slice of Extra Cheese Pizza (regular crust) and 1 slice of the Brooklyn Style Pepperoni Pizza (somewhere between thin and thick, hence Brooklyn Style) with a few chicken kickers, and a piece of Cinnastix with that darned icing. I think I did ok, because normally I would've eaten anywhere from 4-6 slices of pizza. Yuckkkk! I was actually feeling full on my way to pizza slice #2 and should've just given up there, but I'm working on it. I'm getting there gradually.

I did some weight lifting last night and some crunches, and little quick 2-min aerobics. Not much, I know, but Charlie wouldn't go to sleep so I was using that as my excuse to be lazy.

Then, a little after 11 pm, I actually made a smoothie (1.5 bananas, a small container of applesauce, a small container of apple juice, a peach yogurt, Benefiber, and ice). I think that was the tastiest smoothie I've ever made, even though it didn't have much fruit in it at all. But seriously though, that was one kick-butt smoothie (and I'm sure Benefiber will be kicking my butt later, as well).

This morning the scale read 248.4 lbs. I don't think I'm making much progress. I know my diet hasn't been ideal, lately. I need to think carefully about my food decisions before I eat. At least today I should be eating in at lunch. I might take a walk too, if it's not too hot.

Oh, btw, I forgot to mention: I had a few sodas yesterday... this might be part of my problem..

Oh Thank Heaven!

Lunch was in a hurry because of a staff meeting. I could have stayed in the office and eaten a ham sandwich (yucky).. but I opted to go to 7-Eleven and grab something else. I got the TGI Friday's Chicken Quesadillas, a big bottle of water, and a 99 cent bag of Sweet and Spicy Chili Doritos.. Ok.. not the wisest choice for lunch, but I don't think it was terrible. The 2 Quesadillas total had 520 calories and the Doritos had 310.. So that was like what.. 830 calories? I don't think it was too bad at least. I'm really full too, by the way.

I don't plan on eating a snack for a lonnng while.. although I'm not suppose to eat my snack until 3:00 pm or after, anyways..

Maybe I can just skip the snack if I'm still full (yeah, right!).

Mickey D's Please

Yesterday Charlie was sick and I ate pretty healthily, but couldn't blog. Today, I had to get up extra early because Charles is going to the Zoo!! 

So, I suggested that mom and I stop by McDonald's for breakfast, and we did. I got the sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit, a hashbrown, and a diet coke. Hey, a girl's gotta live once in awhile, right? Haha. 

I am full right now, and usually, McDonald's breakfast keeps me full for awhile. I plan on having a healthier lunch than breakfast. 

Oh and I forgot to mention that last night I did a 6-mile walk (sorry mom for being late!) burning about 600 calories. 

I'll let you know how the rest of the day goes!

I'm baaaackk

Well, it's been awhile since I've blogged. It's not that I didn't want to, though. It's because my computer hasn't been working.. But anyways, it's good to be back. The weekend was ok: not great, but not horrible, either. Today's weight was 248.2 lbs.

I just ate lunch. A ham and cheese sandwich with mayo, a few crackers w/ pimiento cheese spread, and a really small piece of hershey's chocolate.

I'm getting ready to take my lunchtime walk.

Nothing exciting to report, though!
