Umpqua - Saturday May 23, 2015
(Moderate Healthy Eating & Exercise)
Weight: 140.6

I'm estimating 2,000 calories for yesterday. Considering what a trying day it was, I think this is good. We ended the day spending several hours of family time outside around the firepit, playing on the trampoline, roasting hot dogs for dinner (with baby carrots) and setting off some supermarket fireworks. I also had 2 mojitos with fresh mint from my new plant and they were delicious.

Today I've already gotten a bunch of work done on the cabinets and I plan to spend the afternoon doing that. Continuing to log my calories and trying to keep things in check. Tomorrow I have a wedding that will take up most of the day, followed by a BBQ Monday. I will do my best since there will be lots of food surrounding me both days. I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend!

Progress as of today: 19.4 lbs lost so far, only 8.6 lbs to go!

Your having a really busy weekend and an emotional roller coaster. Enjoy your BBQ.

Umpqua on 05/23/2015:
Thanks, Fran. A funeral and a wedding within 2 days makes for quite an emotional weekend so I'm just doing my best to stay focused and on an even keel :)


grannyannie on 05/23/2015:
How draining! Keeping to 2,000 is an accomplishment! Hang in there.

Umpqua on 05/23/2015:
Thanks, Annie!

It was not an easy morning but I got through it. Did well yesterday too at just under 1,500 calories and I got in about an hour of gardening. Yesterday's eats:

B - 1/2 lavash wrap filled with avocado, tomato, roasted peppers and spinach L - 2 eggs, slice toast D - pork chop, baked fries, corn on cob S - bowl crispy choc cereal with dark choc chips and lowfat milk

Today I had 2 boiled eggs in the a.m. then lunch out. Kept it somewhat clean with a buffalo chicken salad and a glass of wine. Could have been worse. I will plan to check in over the weekend to stay accountable.

Progress as of today: 19.4 lbs lost so far, only 8.6 lbs to go!

Have a good day, Ump.

Sounds good. Have a great weekend.

You did good. Have a great weekend.

I'm sorry to hear of your aunt's passing.

Buffalo chicken salad sounds good just about now!

Here's to the weekend:-)

Good day yesterday at around 1,450 calories. No exercise and not sure if I'll get any in today. The little one had me up part of the night with nightmares so I'm dragging this a.m. It doesn't happen often with him so I can't complain too much. I'd still like to get a little yoga in, maybe I'll feel better in the afternoon.

My aunt's funeral is tomorrow so everyone needs to be out the door extra early so my husband and I can get there on time. I will have to eat on the run and possibly get lunch out, I will do my best to make everything healthy and I will plan to check in afterward, later in the day.

Yesterday eats:

Br - 1 egg, 1/2 chicken sausage, cheddar on 1/2 lavash wrap
S - nonfat Greek yogurt, Go Bar
D - 1 mustard-thyme chicken thigh, 1 slice chicken loaf, broccoli
S - slice whole grain with pb and dark choc chips

Progress as of today: 19.4 lbs lost so far, only 8.6 lbs to go!

puddles on 05/21/2015:
Sometimes things can't be helped and we have to eat out. Have a good day.


grannyannie on 05/21/2015:
Well done on the calories. Hard to workout if you're too tired. Sorry for your loss. xx


OhioRaven on 05/21/2015:
Sorry for the loss. Take care.

Yesterday was another good one at around 1,750 calories. Exercise was a tough Jillian Michaels workout (I think it's safe to say ALL Jillian Michaels workouts are tough at this point). No workout today since I have too much work and too many errands. I'll be shooting for something tomorrow though, maybe yoga.

Eats:

Br - 2 eggs, slice whole grain
S - lowfat yogurt, Go Bar
D - chicken loaf, small baked potato with light sour cream, sauteed sugar snap peas
S - crispy cocoa cereal with dark choc chips and a little lowfat milk 

Progress as of today: 19.4 lbs lost so far, only 8.6 lbs to go!

puddles on 05/20/2015:
Sounds like you are mastering those exercises by Jillian. Good for you. Have a great day.


OhioRaven on 05/20/2015:
You're Tough Enough. Good Cals. Cept for them Coco Crisps.

Umpqua on 05/20/2015:
Heh, I'm glad you wrote this since I don't ever break down my calories. The crisps are Mom's Best brand with all good ingredients and are 160 for 1 cup. Not full of nutrition but a better choice to satisfy my sweet tooth than ice cream or worse.


OhioRaven on 05/20/2015:
I stand corrected :v)

Umpqua on 05/20/2015:
Nah, they're still empty calories, you were right to point it out!


liza36 on 05/20/2015:
Jillian Michaels kills me! I have one DVD of hers, and the lowest level for 20 minutes was tough. You're doing great!

I never made it back here over the weekend, but I did really well. I realized I hadn't listed my calories for Thursday, they were about 1,400. Friday was 1,750 with gardening. Saturday I didn't log but I got a bunch of gardening in and then my husband and I had an unexpected date night and went out for sushi. I think I did well and didn't overdo it. Yesterday was a bunch more gardening exercise and around 1,700.

I thought I had a pretty low-key week coming up but we had a death in the family yesterday so there will be some travel and wacky schedule stuff. I will just continue to do my best as I think I've been on a good streak. Today will be quiet with either more gardening or cabinet work for exercise depending on the weather.

Progress as of today: 19.4 lbs lost so far, only 8.6 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 05/18/2015:
Good job staying consistant on the cals and exercising. We missed your posts.


grannyannie on 05/18/2015:
Good job on the calories. So sorry about the loss in your family.

Umpqua on 05/18/2015:

Weight is updated to reflect another lb gone. Inching back toward where I was pre-vacation. I did great last night for a night out and came in at around 1,400 calories. My dinner count was low because we were rushed for time to make it to our event, but that's OK. I made good choices and am feeling really good about this week overall!

Yesterday's activity was gardening. Today I've got an outing to a garden center and then I'll be on deadline for work. I'm hoping I'll be able to get more planting, feeding and mulching done after that and I'm planning lots of activity for the weekend. It looks like rain tomrorrow so it will be a good day to get everything watered outside while I work inside on the cabinets.

I'm planning to check in over the weekend to stay on point and I hope everyone enjoys it!

Progress as of today: 19.4 lbs lost so far, only 8.6 lbs to go!

puddles on 05/15/2015:
Congrats on the lb loss. Your activities will definitely keep you busy inside or outside. Have a great weekend.


OhioRaven on 05/15/2015:
Good work on the loss, Coach. I got spinach, watermelon, kale and tomatoes in. Now I gotta get onion and garlic starts. Remember the sweet potatoes that took over my garden and vined everywhere ? Yep. I learn my lesson. The farmers market has them.

Umpqua on 05/15/2015:
Very nice and vines can quickly get out of hand haha. I'm doing most things in pots and planters on my deck - I've got lettuce, swiss chard and sugar snap peas going from seed and picked up tomatoes and hot and sweet peppers plants today. Also a bunch of fresh herbs and flowers - yeah, I got a little carried away :P


grannyannie on 05/15/2015:
Well done! Really good keeping calories down even when eating out. Have a great weekend.


biscottibody59 on 05/15/2015:
Good going on the loss--enjoy your weekend and all the gardening:-)

I did a 45-minute Jillian Michaels workout yesterday and boy am I feeling the burn today! It was great though and a good way to start a busy and somewhat stressful day. Today should be much calmer and I'm hoping to get some painting or a little yardwork done.

Calories were 1,630 - I needed the higher amount with what I burned. Today's challenge is dinner out with a friend and then we're doing one of those cocktails and painting classes. I'm making sangria and am going to stick to smaller plates and try to keep things healthy. Should be fun :)

Yesterday:

B - Go bar, green smoothie
L - 2 boiled eggs
S - lowfat yogurt
D - pork loin, baked potato fries, green beans/tomatoes with balsamic
S - slice whole grain with peanut butter and dark choc chips 

Progress as of today: 18.6 lbs lost so far, only 9.4 lbs to go!

puddles on 05/14/2015:
Wow your doing great. I need some of your energy. Have a great day.


OhioRaven on 05/14/2015:
Nice workout and calories. I'd like to try painting something while intoxicated.

Umpqua on 05/14/2015:
LOL yeah, this is going to be a fun experiment :)

I logged another good day yesterday at just under 1,500 calories. Exercise was lawn mowing AND painting. The cabinet project is most definitely back on track and I'll be getting the supplies I need today to keep going with it. Today is extra busy but I may be able to log a little more time tomorrow and or Friday.

I'm heading out shortly to finally getting a workout in with my buddy!

Yesterday eats:

L - salad topped with tuna, dried cranberries, pepitas, creamy balsamic
S - Go bar
D - Quorn veggie curry over multigrain pilaf, crispy green beans and tomatoes with balsamic
S - popcorn ball

Progress as of today: 18.6 lbs lost so far, only 9.4 lbs to go!

I stuck to plan yesterday and finished at 1,370 calories. I also got in a couple of hours of sanding work - I actually ran out of disks close to the finish line. I'll be picking up more tomorrow or Thursday. Today I'm shooting for a veggie day and exercise will be some painting (hopefully) and mowing - we finally have enough grass to mow!

Yesterday eats:

B - 2 boiled eggs
L - lowfat peach yogurt
S - Go Bar, 1/2 piece turkey meatloaf
D - honey spicy chicken thighs, multigrain pilaf (both Cooking Light recipes) and sesame asparagus
S - Cooking Light popcorn ball - great homemade dessert at only 120 calories

That dinner looks lovely!

RYC: We had been in drought conditions for so long that this rain is nearly unbelievable. Of course we're getting close to the place where it's just too much at once.
