January 6

So today went fairly well-I ate a lot of stuff that I ate yesterday and got some veggies in, so that's good!


I had a cup of Cheerios with 1/2 cup skim milk and a large Hazelnut coffee from Dunkin Donuts with 1/4 cup skim milk and 2 splendas-YUM!


I took my brother to the park, and then we stopped at Chick-Fil-A and picked up lunch.  I got the Chicken Tortilla Soup and the Granola Yogurt Parfait (again!). SO SO SO GOOD!  I also had 1 chicken nugget :)


Around 4:30, I got really hungry, so I had a serving of Reduced-Fat Cheez-its.


My mom and I went to Willy's Mexicana Grill and I got a Chipotle-Barbecue Pork Burrito Bowl with a little bit of cheese, black beans, rice, onions, cucumber, pico de gallo, and a touch of sour cream. SO GOOD! I also had a couple of chips (maybe like 6 or 7) with some queso dip. DELISH!


I was really craving coffee, so I made a cup instead of buying one, and put 1/4 cup of milk and 2 splendas in it :)

Exercise: I helped put all the Christmas decorations away and I played with my brother at the park :)  It's not running or going to the gym, but it definitely burned calories :)

Pros: Yay for eating well and eating veggies! And YAY for sticking to my resolutions! 360 days to go :)

Cons: I need to keep track of my water and get myself running again!

Hoping for a better tomorrow!  My friend is coming to stay for a few days and I'm really excited!

January 5

So, today was pretty great and I'm doing fabulous with my New Year's Resolutions!  I mean, it's been a bit difficult to resist the urge for chocolate, but I've done it :)


1 Cup of Cheerios with 1/2 cup skim milk and 1 cup of coffee with 1/4 cup skim milk and 2 splendas-YUM!


I took the kids I was nannying to Chick-Fil-A for lunch and so I got the chance to try the new Chicken Tortilla Soup, along with a Granola Yogurt Parfait and a Medium Unsweet Tea-YUM YUM YUM!

Snack #1:

After the movie, we went to Menchie's and I got some Strawberry-Kiwi Sorbet with sliced almonds, coconut, graham cracker crumbs, and granola-YUM!

Snack #2:

I was getting hungry around 4 and I needed to fill my car with gas, so I checked out the gas station's selection and found these crackers-yay for getting a good snack!


We had Chinese food take-out and I had two plates, but we have small plates and I didn't take so much the first time!

Exercise: Not today, but I'll improve that in a couple of days!

Pros:  Yay for eating fairly well today and not breaking any Resolutions yet!  Also, yay for getting pictures! I LOVE having a camera!

Cons: Veggies, Water, and Exercise!

January 4

I'm finally caught up, and I can't wait to go back to school in 10 long days! It'll be busy, but I'm excited :)
Also, today wasn't the best day, for the record :)

Breakfast: I went to Chick-Fil-A and got a Chicken Biscuit, a Medium Unsweet Tea, and a Yogurt Parfait with granola, but they forgot to put the granola in there.  It was SO good though! I think i'll get it tomorrow too!  I also had 1/2 a cup of coffee with 1/4 cup milk and 2 splendas.

Lunch:  I took two kids I'm nannying to Chuck E. Cheese and had four slices of a medium pizza (which is about two normal slices), and a salad from the salad bar with eggs, onions, a tiny bit of bacon, and some ranch.  It wasn't fabulous, but it worked.  Along with that, I had an unsweet tea, but it was nasty.

Dinner:  I had my Four Cheese Tortellini with some broccoli and carrots which was SO good!  I also had a cup of tea which certainly hit the spot.

Exercise:  Not today, but I'll get back in the habit tomorrow!

Pros:  I got to skype with one of my really good friends from school and it was nice to talk to her.  I also got to see the kids I love and hang out with them which was fun :)

Cons: I really need to work out and drink more water!

Hopefully I'll start posting pictures in tomorrow's entry!

January 3

So, today wasn't as fabulous as I expected, but I'm still sticking to my resolutions, so I'm happy :)

Breakfast: Once again, I had a Whole Wheat English Muffin with 1 tbsp. Almond Butter and 2 tbsp. Blackberry Preserves with 1 cup of coffee with 1/4 cup skim milk and 2 splendas.

Snack:  I wasn't really feeling cold cuts or much of anything for lunch today so I ate a snack sized bag of White Cheddar Popcorn.

Dinner: I had a Tuna Sandwich on Wheat Bread at the airport, along with a bag of White Cheddar Popcorn, a bite of a Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich and a sip of Pink Lemonade.  I also had a bag of mini pretzels on the plane and a cup of hot tea.

Exercise:  I ran outside with my brother for a few minutes and we also walked all over the airport/parking deck, which is probably my exercise for the day.

Pros: Yay for eating well, or at least trying!

Cons: I need to get the exercise/water/vegetables in!

January 2

So, sorry for not posting! After seeing that the first post was saved as a draft, I didn't want to waste any of my cell phone batter by writing up others, so here they go :)

Breakfast: I had a Whole Wheat English Muffin with 1 tbsp. Almond Butter and 2 tbsp. Blackberry Preserves with a cup of coffee with 1/4 cup skim milk and 2 splendas. The english muffin was SO good-I want to make these in my room at school!

Lunch: We went to McDonalds, and I got the Grilled Southwest Salad, which was REALLY good!  I also had about 1/2 a Medium Fry and some Honey Mustard sauce, along with a Medium Unsweetened Tea.

Dinner: I had about 1.5 oz. of a roast, along with 1/2 a baked potato, and 1/2 cup of peas.  It wasn't amazing, but it hit the spot.  I also had a small piece of a Raspberry Mousse Cake.

Exercise: Not today, but I'll work on it! It's hard when you're staying at someone's house on vacation.

Pros: Yay for the good, or at least, not terrible, eating choices. I'm especially pleased about breakfast.

Cons: I want to be able to track my water intake, so I'll work on that.

January 1

Hey y'all! I'm getting back on the blogging wagon and trying this again :)  Right now, I'm on vacation (headed here this morning) with spotty reception so I'll post as often as possible. I'm also starting the year at 227.1 pounds and will be posting my resolutions when I'm back :)

Breakfast: Low-fat Blueberry Muffin and 2/3 of a Medium Nonfat Vanilla Latte

Lunch: Turkey sandwich on Potato Bread with Brown Mustard, and a bit of some Tomato-Mozzerella Salad. It was filling.

Dinner: half a piece of Roast, 2/3 of a baked potato with 2 tbsp. Sour Cream with Chives, and about 1/2 cup of peas, along with about 1/10 of a Raspberry Mousse Cake.

Exercise: Ran around for about 15 minutes today. Every little bit counts :) 

Pro: I got a scale for school so weekly check-ins are back on! I'm also happy I haven't broken a resolution yet! Hope that trend continues the next 365 days!

Con: I wish I had chosen a different breakfast, but I didn't have many options. Oh well.

Hoping for a better tomorrow!
