My 21 Day Goal is to follow Seattle Runner Girls 21 Days to a new habit challenge, and it is going REALLY well! I am on day 13, and I haven’t missed a day of my goal of a minimum of 30 minutes of activity per day. Yesterday I walked 2.6 miles in 37 minutes. The weather was just perfect yesterday; I just need the pollen to go away. I haven’t gotten on my treadmill in weeks, I feel sort of bad for that, but the weather is just too nice to not go out and enjoy it.
I’m officially off of Zyrtec (see THIS post) so I am hoping to see the weight from that drop off. I know it wasn’t ALL Zyrtec, I will take responsibility for my part, but I know that I didn’t gain 7.2 pounds in two weeks via a few bad choices. It’s SO FRUSTRATING to gain that much in two weeks, knowing that it could easily take me 7 weeks to lose that amount. Between following a bit of a different plan because of the Fit for the Fourth Challenge that I joined at work and being off the allergy meds, hopefully I’ll see a big drop on the scale this coming Saturday!
Yesterday was my first day on the lower calorie plan, and it came out to 1,368 (range of 1280-1630) calories and 26.5 points (out of my available 33.) I figured I’d share my food journal from yesterday so you can see how much food I got out of those points! FYI-I weighed my steak last night (must win the challenge!) and wow was I over estimating what 4 oz of cooked meat looks like!
1 tsp Brummell & Brown Spread, 1 Everything Bagel Thin, 3 Egg Whites, 4 Tbsp Fat Free ½ & ½ in 2 cups of coffee, 1 Cup Grapes (4.5 Points or 276 calories)
2 Cups Lettuce/Spinach Mix, 3 oz Chicken Breast, 2 tsp Olive Oil, 1 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar, 2 Tbsp Bacon Bits, 2 slices of onion, 1 Tbsp Sunflower Seeds, ¼ C corn (8 Points or 331 Calories)
4 oz Cooked/Trimmed Filet Mignon, ¼ C Onions Grilled, 1 Medium Baked Potato, 1 Medium Green Pepper Grilled, 1 tsp Olive Oil, 1 Tbsp Brummell & Brown Spread (10 Points or 411 Calories)
Snacks (Throughout the day)
1 Dark Chocolate Vita Brownie, Yoplait Strawberry Shortcake Yogurt, Fiber One 90 Calorie Bar, 1 Cup Carrot Sticks (4 Points or 350 Calories)
I drank 4 Liters of water (I typically drink 3-5 Liters a day)
Tata for now,
