Energy In (Food) and Energy Out (Exercise)
 
At the request of LostinAusten, Determined Gemini, and myself, this thread is for accountability of food intake and exercise, only. All other dialogues should be in the other MediWeightLoss threads.

So far today I've eaten:
B - 4 oz roasted turkey "dipped" into 1 Tbsp of low fat cream cheese w chives
L - 3/4 c. cottage cheese and black pepper
D - 3 oz chicken that I have marinated in curry/chicken broth/onions

Haven't yet exercised but considering the recumbant bike while watching "The Bachelor," so I'll post that later.

L - 3oz chicken breast w/ mushroom, egg whites, spinach (Lunch out at the Cheesecake Factory)
D - 3oz chicken breast stuffed with laughing cow and spinach
S -100 cal cheese stick
S - Laughing cow and celery

This thread will be great because we'll get meal planning ideas! Thanks for starting it.

Im In!!
 
Okay, im in... I'll post too. God knows I need the accountability.

Monday:
B: Egg Whites (4), Can. Bacon (1), & Coffee = 160 P, 25 Misc
L: Talapia (2) & Coffee = 160 P, 50 Misc.
D: Chicken (4oz) = 140 P
S: Beef Jerky & Coffee = 135 P, 25 Misc

Exercise: None (unless you count walking a 10 month old baby around the house, because she says she wants to walk and not crawl and yet you have to hold her hand every second for fear that she might gash her head open on some furniture exercise)? She had me bent over and walking around for about 20 minutes. So if I burned 50 calories doing that so be it! LOL!

Lent
 
I have decided to cut my coffee intake to one cup a day. That is my sacrifice during the lent season. It will be hard for me to give up and in the long run, I know it will do me good. Maybe I should give up cashews too... hmmm. Done. As of now (since I already snacked on some) I give up cashews for lent. :p

Girl, we need to get you an alternative to those cashews. Have you tried the Blue Diamond Coco Almonds. I love them. You can buy them in a jar or in a 100 cal package. They are what I go to when I want a handful or something. :) Congrats on getting below 150. My goal next week is to get below 170. I'll even take 169.99999. 2.8 pounds. I may not eat or drink for the two days prior to weigh in. lol.

saraanne 02-19-2010 02:59 PM

Oops. That should have said. .8 pounds to go to get below 170.

Your comment about cashews in your previous post made me laugh. I am just starting week two. The NP went over my fat choices, but said that, personally, she doesn't go with nuts because she can't stop eating them. I know I would be the same and plan to stick with olive oil three times a week. I am thinking that if I don't have any nuts at all I won't miss them!

About coffee... have you tried have frozen coffee blended with an EAS shake in the morning? It comes out like a milkshake and might make cutting back to one cup easier :)

Fit2010 02-20-2010 02:40 PM

Okay, just made what I'll call a Faux-pa-chino.

I took an EAS shake, dumped it in the blender, put a pinch of instant coffee in, and a few ice cubes and blended. Viola...Fauxpachino.

110calories, 4 carbs

Not too terribly bad for a chocolatey treat.
