Day 134: Mini Binge Recovery, Devil Chips & A Failed Recipe - SAD

I know I mentioned my ‘mini binge’ last night. I finally brought myself around to tracking and it wasn’t as bad as I thought: 1,816 calories, 262 carbs and 44 fat grams. Not AWFUL, 266 calories over the high and I burned 300 calories by walking 5.5 miles again so really it’s in REC zone when you factor in my exercise. But I didn’t need all that food! The extra chips and milk chocolates? I was just bored and let my TOM pick random foods, after 10 p.m. no less! Oh well – another day, right? Here’s what I ate.

Today was a much better day. I stayed super busy at work, which made the time fly by! Me and Stacy walked 3.5 miles at lunch, but for the first time, we couldn’t get side-by-side treadmills! So none of our usual chatter but we DID get to read lots of our books which was nice! When we got back to work it was nonstop meetings until 5 and I was out – back to the gym for another 2 miles, a great ab workout and chest and tricep strength training. So today I did:

Cardio: 5.5 miles walking 4mph (15 minute miles)
Tricep: Nosebreakers with the 20-pound EZ Bar (3 sets of 15)
Chest: Press with the 20-pound EZ Bar (3 sets of 20)
Tricep: Bench dips (3 sets of 10)
Chest: Lying flies with 5-pound dumbbells (3 sets of 15)
Tricep: Overhead dumbbell extension w/10-pound dumbbell (3 sets of 15)
Chest: Lying dumbbell press with 10-pound dumbbells (3 sets of 12)

Felt great! My arms are a little sore but it’s cool! I will say, during my 3:30 p.m. meeting I started getting the sniffles. Then when I got back to my desk I started sneezing. I so hope it’s just the freakish weather change…. I so hope I’m not showing early signs of a cold… eek! As far as food, my Morningstar sausage/egg muffin was fab! I skipped my mid-morning snack, and had the curried chicken salad for lunch on a pita… I wasn’t a fan. I couldn’t even eat it all! Boo. A failed recipe. Sad. Thank god I had some hummus in my lunch box so I ate half the pita with the hummus and forced the other half w/the chicken salad down so I wouldn’t be so hungry at the gym! Then I found a light sargento cheese stick and ate it! By 4 p.m. I caved and had 2 Hershey’s kisses and 2 butterscotch candies! I needed a treat! When I got home me and Austin made an old favorite – something I used to eat at least 3 times/week – rice, broccoli & lemon pepper tilapia. Me and Austin agreed – it’s not as good as it used to be. It feels like we’re eating healthy, whereas some of our other, newer meals don’t feel healthy – but they are! So… we’re going to pass on this meal for a while… weird, huh? Used to love it… now I’m disappointed!! Guess it’s back to the pizza muffins! Hehe I was so disappointed I had a kashi cookie…. Then more of those dang Kettle Chips. It’s clear they’re my ‘Tostitos jalapeño scoops’ in disguise (i.e. evil). I’ve GOT to get on the snacks as much as I have my other meals! Going to get out the Hungry Girl cookbook and make some desserts this weekend – NEED snacks! Here’s what I ate.

Anyway, now I’m chilling, watching 30 rock episodes with Austin, reading your blogs (J), watching The Biggest Loser from last night (when he plays video games), and petting Reuben. Today was his first day “loose” in our place. He did wonderful and we’re so proud of him!! I also bought 12 books online at Barnes & Noble – each was on sale for $3.99 and free shipping! Couldn’t be beat – and most are hardback!!! SCORE! (those are easier to read on the treadmill) I hope you all had great Wednesdays. Am I the only one so ready for Friday? Can’t wait for the weekend – probably because I have no plans! Yesssss.

Those chips you have pictured sound AMAZING! Good thing they don't sell "fancy" food like that in Hell. LOL

Btw...Dothan is getting a Dunkin Donuts. Movin' on up! LOL

That picture of the fat squirrel is AWESOME! I might have to steal that. ;-)

I think you need to chalk up this "snacking" to TOM and not be so hard on yourself. :)

I was just on the amazon website and had 5 books in my shopping cart... i'm deciding if i want to buy them, bc i still have a ton of books i haven't read yet at home! Don't worry about your "mini binge" today will be a better day :) and sometimes you need a little splurge!

Oh my - Dr. Evil! Wow - i'd cry if a doctor told me that - especially if I was carrying another human being - dang!! Never go to him for a pap - you'll end up wanting lypo or something crazy!!
