Day 141 - Journal your progress ....

Yes, journal your progress.  Writing for me is definitely a stress buster and it makes me very aware of what I am doing be it right or wrong.  Today is a new day and I plan on getting back on track and staying there.  Welcome Tina to the world of blogging.  Have fun, be honest with yourself and don't worry about what others think.  Take critisim with an open mind and you will succeed.  Happy Saturday everyone, catch you later.

Ok, here we go folks, I'm back on track and heading for home.  I have managed to finish our year end books now just waiting on T4's so I can take it all into the accountant.  Woohoo, I'm way ahead of myself this year, I am truly impressed.  While I was down in the office I went looking for my old food plan from my FA days and low and behold I found it.  Yep, I'm on a roll... anyway, decided that I am going to give it a try.  It requires absolutely no fancy foods or preparation and if I recall correctly it lead to a major weight lose.  So gonna give the cat another kick in the pants and see how far it can fly.  This food plan is easily adaptable to anyone that is extremely obsese, such as I am.  So hang onto your seats cuz here I come.

4 oz low fat yogurt
1 orange
1 cup green tea
8 oz water

6 oz salad (heavy on the vegetables, light on the lettuce)
1 tablespoon dressing (doesn't have to be low cal as long as sugar is not listed in the first 5 ingredients, makes you read labels) - I had calorie wise ranch
4 oz water packed tuna
6 oz cooked vegetables (no peas or corn), I had green beans
8 oz water

4 oz sirloin tip steak grilled
6 oz salad with 1 tablespoon dressing
6 oz steamed cauliflower
8 oz water

I forgot to mention that I stepped on the scale this morning just to see how much damage I had done over the past few days:  285.6 lbs.  Not as bad as I thought it would be but definitely a gain.  Official weigh in is not till Monday but I needed to see for myself what the damages were.  It's amazing that we can struggle for a week just to drop a pound but can go on a binge and put on a pound a day.  Doesn't quite compute in my mathematical brain.  But just the same definitely an eye opener when you think of it in those terms.


  1. Yummy menu! That is the way I like to eat - I hate processed foods and junk - I always feel bleah. You should be proud of yourself, nice job.

    And don't worry about last week - it will all be a distant memory soon, right?

    Have a great week.

  2. Thanks Tessa! That's my plan, and ALL comments are welcome. And Thanks for visiting me on My Day!
    I'm glad you are exited again about loosing the weight, as long as your meal plan is something that you can stick with- you're gonna do great!!!

    We all have bad days, but it's what we do with the NEXT day that counts!

  3. Writing out my thoughts in this process of losing weight is the only way I am going to stick with it. Thank you for visiting me on my site. I've been reading around yours today a bit :o)

    I agree with the above comment, we all have bad days, it's what we do the next day that counts!
