Day 25 ~ Body by Vi 90 Day Challenge ~ 6/25/12

I did not fall off the wagon! I promise. I just stopped posting for the weekend.  The long weekend!  It's been seriously crazy around here and the computer has just taken a back burner.  Considering I made a ton of food for a gathering this weekend, I did pretty good.  Not completely on track, that's for sure but very good.  It was the leftovers that were the killer. They always are.  I barely ate while cooking and actually at the party but after so much came home, I nibbled way too much.  The shakes were actually a blessing throughout this stressful mess.  Several times the family just ran to McD's for something to eat with all the running around.  The shakes gave me a quick way to get something good in.  So I haven't been tracking but I'm planning to get back on that immediately!

Day 19 ~ Body by Vi 90 Day Challenge ~ 6/19/12

Breakfast - Body by Vi Shake
Snack - GF crackers, leftover fajita mix
Lunch - Body by Vi Shake
Snack - couple of pieces of cheese
Dinner - Chili with spaghetti squash, GF crackers
Snack - Sweet Potato Ice Cream

Today I ate well but ate too large of portions.  I need to stop buying the GF crackers. They are a weakness for me.  I love to dip things with crackers.  I didn't eat a ton but certainly ate more than necessary.  Because of the crackers.  I'm the only one who eats the sweet potato ice cream.  So I'm giving the rest to my dad. No more for me!

Day 18 ~ Body by Vi 90 Day Challenge ~ 6/18/12

Ok, no more hiccups on the Body by Vi 90 Day Challenge.  I want this and it's time to take it seriously.  I do better when I calorie count. I don't like using the online trackers as I cook a lot of food and it's too much time to enter the whole recipe in there.  I just end up spending too much time on it and then just stop doing it altogether. 

 That's what this blog is for. 

At least for the 90 day challenge.  I'm using the blog to track my food.  I like using calorieking.com to find the calories for certain things.  Today I had 3 oz. of black beans, calorieking.com told me that it was 114 calories. I can live with that.  The only way that I've liked the online trackers is when someone is doing it with me.  But every friend keeps peetering out just like me. 

Breakfast: Body by Vi shake (200 calories)
Snack: 3 oz. black beans, 2 tbsp. salsa, 1 tbsp. sour cream, 15 gluten free crackers (275 calories)
Lunch: Body by Vi Shake (200 calories)
Snack: Pineapple & baby carrots (100 calories)
Dinner: Chicken Fajitas - 6 oz. chicken, peppers & onions, 3 corn tortillas, guac (600)
Then I made the mistake of coming home after exercise class and eating a bit more GF crackers and guac (250)

Day 16 ~ Body by Vi 90 Day Challenge ~ 6/16/2012

Breakfast - Body by Vi Shake
Lunch - Buffet Restaurant
Dinner - Body by Vi Shake
Snack - Trail mix

We've got to stop eating out.  That was one of the reasons I didn't mind paying for the Body by Vi shake system because I thought it would save us from going out to eat so much. Well, we've been stinking on that.

We went to the buffet for lunch but I ate good. Well, better than I would have before at least.  Then another shake for dinner and a couple of handfuls of trail mix for a snack. I actually could have and should have gone without the trail mix. I know I had plenty of calories at the buffet.

Day 15 ~ Body by Vi 90 Day Challenge ~ 6/15/12

Bad day.

I'm not even going to say what I ate. Nope. Let's just say it wasn't on plan and it totally not good. Not going to happen again.

Day 14 ~ Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge ~ 6/14/12

Breakfast - Body by Vi Shake
Snack - Yogurt
Lunch - Pizza
Dinner - Body by Vi Shake
Snack - Trail Mix

I started the day good, then I decided to eat pizza. Not smart.  I knew I'd get a gluten headache but I ate it anyways.  Then I ate the shake for dinner.  I ate some trail mix for a snack. I didn't eat a ton but I did eat too much. I need to stay away from trail mix.  It's SO good but very high in calories!

Day 13 ~ Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge ~ 6/13/12

Weigh in Wednesday.  I stayed the same in weight which is good considering I'm having my period and I ate Chinese food on Monday.  Busy, busy day.  I'm ready to drop. 

Eating was good. I munched on watermelon this morning while cutting it for the kids. I kiped a sausage link for lunch that I hadn't planned on.  Then I had leftover tacos for dinner. I ate too much but didn't do too bad.  I'm lacking in the veggies a lot though. 

Breakfast - Body by Vi Shake
Snack - Watermelon
Lunch - Body by Vi Shake with 1/2 banana, 1 sausage link
Snack - Yogurt
Dinner - Tacos

Day 12 ~ Body By Bi 90 Day Challenge ~ 6/12/12

Breakfast - Body by Vi shake with a bit of white chocolate pudding mix
Snack - Yogurt
Lunch - Body by Vi shake with 1/2 banana
Snack - little bit of ham with mustard, several bites of baked beans, yogurt
Dinner - Tacos

I still got to work on eliminating a snack.  I'm not necessarily eating it because I'm hungry, just because I'm in the mood to eat something.  That was the reason for the last yogurt and the bites of baked beans.  All in all, I'm happy with how things are going.  The cravings have stopped and my overwhelming desire to eat the house is gone. The afternoon is the hardest, I think it's force of habit to just munch in the afternoon.  The Body by Vi shakes are plenty filling so I don't NEED to do that. I just need to listen to my body and remember that.

Day 11 ~ Body By Bi 90 Day Challenge ~ 6/11/12

Today was a better day than this weekend. I don't actually drink my first shake until about 9:30 or 10. So my "snack" is actually right at lunch time when I feed everyone else.  Then "lunch" is about 2:00.  Snack around 4 and dinner around 6:30.  This seems to work out great.  I drink 2 - 16 oz. glasses of water before breakfast and I try to drink another one with everything else that I eat. 

Breakfast - Body By Vi Shake
Snack - Eggs with veggies
Lunch - Body By Vi Shake with 1/2 banana
Snack - Yogurt, a few homemade potato chips
Dinner - Baked Beans
Dessert - Sweet Potato Ice Cream

Day 10 ~ Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge ~ 6/10/12

Breakfast - Body by Vi shake with 1/2 banana
Snack - Chobani yogurt and an apple
Lunch ~ Body by Vi shake with orange flavor packet  (yum!)
Snack - 4 mini Dove chocolates (darned husband for bringing them home!)
Dinner - Sweet and sour chicken and fried rice
Snack - Homemade potato chips (1/2 potato, tops)

Well, the chinese food probably wasn't the best choice for dinner. I'm sure I'll be bloated and salty tomorrow.  Plus, I did eat too much of it. I let myself get TOO hungry.  No more eating out!!  We have to stop doing that!
