Daily Assessment Catch-Up Time: Sunday, Monday and Tuesday (Sept. 21 – 23)

K – sorry! Eek! Traveling makes blogging hard…. Especially when you’re having more fun blogging about traveling than food! Time to play catch up....

Sunday, Sept. 21

So Sunday I was good (to make up for all of the drinks on Saturday I’m sure!). Here’s how it went:

Calories: 1,206
Fat: 35
Carbs: 135

What I ate

So calories and fat were in REC zone, but can you believe it, carbs were below the rec zone. I’m actually pretty pumped about this… As far as working out – I had every intention of doing upper body ST but didn’t…. I had to leave at 3 p.m. to catch my flight and just slept in, packed, chilled with Austin & Reuben and didn’t do it! Blah. Either way – overall – I was pumped about it. And I weighed 127.5 – yay!

Monday, Sept. 22

So this day was a toughie as I was in Chicago all day with no means to cook for myself… but still – I could make healthy choices for the most part. I’m still working on putting this into spark people but here goes:

9 a.m. Egg white omelet with vegetables and half a slice of wheat toast…. A few sliced potatoes
12:30 p.m. Halibut with sautéed mushrooms and asparagus…. A few bites of sweet potato mashed potatoes. NO BREAD – yay!
5:30 p.m. 2 cars crackers, 2 cheese cubes, 2 pieces of celery
5:30 p.m. – 10:30 p.m. 4 glasses of white wine and 2 beers (6 drinks over 5 hours is pretty good, right?)
8 p.m. 4 slices of tomato/onion/mushroom pizza (little 3”x2” slices of thin crust pizza) I completely ignored the Chicago style meaty pizza… even though it looked amazing. I meant to have a bite since I’m here and all but forgot!
10:30 p.m. 1 serving of pretzels – my only snack! I just wanted something salty before bedtime and needed some carbs because I had to do a little bit of work… BLAH. It’s hard to edit when you’re tipsy….

I could have done better… and I didn’t work out at all…. But come on! I’m only in the city for two days – I have to take it all in and the hotel gym just isn’t calling my name! haha I’ll make up for it, especially now that I’m bootless!! I’m going to be back in the gym today – I’m so excited! I haven’t done a lunge or squat in almost two weeks – eek – this could be painful….

What I Ate Today I went on the high side for everything (in case of added fats, etc.) Ended up at 1,943 calories (eek!), 45 fat grams (in REC zone) and 120 carbs (not bad!)

Oh and update – the scale in my bathroom didn’t work! Eek! I tried to weigh in and nothing…. Then my omelet got there before I could call! (no one wants to weigh after an omelet). So I’m not weighing for Monday or Tuesday!

Tuesday, Sept. 23

9:30 a.m. Egg white omelet with vegetables… didn’t touch the bread or potatoes.

12:30 p.m. ½ Panini with mushroom, tomato, spinach, fresh mozzarella and pesto mayonnaise (asked for it without it… had to wipe it off but I’m sure I got at least 2 tbsp) & a salad with grilled chicken, 2 tbsp feta cheese, ¼ cup mushrooms and 2 tbsp balsamic vinaigrette dressing

5:30 p.m. 1 slice of pepperoni airport pizza with a 100-calorie pack of chips ahoy candy bites

8 p.m. ½ grilled chicken wrap (lettuce/tomato only) and 50 pretzel sticks

Eek! Here is how it went: What I Ate!

Not too bad: 1,500 calories, 46 fat and 139 carbs. Fat seems high to me…. It’s all CLOSE to good but not good – should have been better but honestly I was SO tired and just didn’t make good choices. Blah.

At least this morning - Wednesday, Sept. 24, I weighed 128.5 - only one pound up from the day I left. Not bad!!!

:) I write it all down! Sorry I haven't checked your blog yet... I started feeling really dizzy/nauseated at work and had to leave at 4:30... now i'm in bed. I don't know what's up.

I'm sorry!

I know there's a bad stomach flu going around here. Both Tonnya and Suzie have had it.

Hope you feel better soon! :)

Yeah... i'm hoping it's my meds... I had forgotten to take my pill at breakfast so i took one at 2 and started feeling awful.... I really hope it's not the stomach flu... I just want to get better and am sad/feel like i'm always sick... :(
