Restaurants & Hot 100 - 11

I have been doing so well this week. I am confident that I will continue the trend. 

I am a bit leery of this weekend though.  Whenever Hubs doesn't work on Saturday, we usually just kinda do whatever. You know, errands, a movie, science museum with the kids, shopping, whatever. Normal Saturday stuff.  Nothing is planned.  At all. 

Not so good for me when I am planning to eat only 1200 calories.  We'll probably do lunch or dinner out.  I have to PLAN where we are going to go so I can look up nutritional information. I'm not so much worried about the temptations. Once I've made up my mind not to eat crap, I won't. I just don't like NOT KNOWING how many calories is in what I'm eating. I'm not good at estimating.  And Allan's challenge isn't about estimating 1200 calories. It's about eating 1200 calories. Period. 

We'll probably do Subway.  Everyone likes it and they have good nutritional stats.  We'll see.  It will annoy me to eat a sandwich when I have sandwich stuff at the house though.

Today, more of the same boring food that I've eaten all week. It's not boring to me, I don't mind leftovers and eating the same thing at all. I would just think reading about the same food would get boring.  I'll bore you anyways.  :-)

Egg beaters + Ham + Salsa = 120 calories
Yogurt = 100 calories
Salad = 120 calories
1 1/3 cups Chicken Chickpea Soup = 330 calories
Chocolate Vitatop = 100 calories
Handful of popcorn = 50 calories (tops)

Total calories = 1120 calories
Water = Plenty, at least 140 oz.

I meant to steam some broccoli with my enchilada but was too lazy and didn't feel like it.  I grabbed a small handful of hubs popcorn about 30 minutes ago and now I'm hungry. It's like the popcorn just set my stomach off or something. Annoying.  I haven't really been hungry all day.  Off to bed.


Hot 100 Update

Excellent on all goals! 

Posting = I'm keeping the window open throughout the day so I can jot things down, that way I don't save it all for right before bed. Keeps me posting and thinking about it more often.

Food Tracking = Every day.  I finally am getting on track and LOVING IT!

Exercise = Much, much better.  The daughter and I have been doing an exercise video together. Plus my usual exercises. Feeling those muscles yell and bit! 

Oh, and I'm jumping on the scale every morning out of curiosity but I won't officially post until the first of the month. It's going to be easier that way rather than weekly.  The numbers are looking better though!  :-)


  1. Good for you! I don't count calories but I am sure I'd struggle to stick to 1200 every day. I have to tell you that you are the MOST supportive hottie! When I visit a blog to check out the challenge update... I see you have been there bright and early:)

  2. Excellent on all goals? That's rad. Boy I would love to be able to say that about my goals too. Congrats! You're doing great. :)

  3. Congrats on meeting all the goals!! You sound so happy and positive too-- which just makes me wanna dance! :) Saturday sounds so fun, and I wouldn't be worried- you're obviously going in with a plan regardless so no danger there!!

  4. I was just going to comment how much happier you seem, but Mrs. D beat me to it. Awesome job this week!!!!

  5. You are doing great, Debbi, on BOTH challenges! The 1200 calories per day doesn't bother me, as I was shooting for 1000 per day for a month or so at the end of the summer. 1200 seems like a bonus after that. But it taught me not to snack so much - the BLT's. The 1200, combined with the water, exercise, and journaling sounds as if you're getting back on track. Let's do it!
