(counting calories and working out!)
Weight: 207.0

I ended up going out to dinner last night and had some BBQ tofu tacos, a few french fries, and a hard cider... OOPS... Even so, my weight is back down 1.4# today-tomorrow I will update weight, I'm still a few above the current posting...  I did go to the gym yesterday, but my workout was a bit lame as my back is acting up a bit... I lifted chest and arms-all machines to  minimize the stress on my lower back.  The good news is I'm still a bit sore today!!  I'm hoping for a more strenuous workout today and hoping to keep the calories right on target.  Tomorrow I'm going out for sushi and then drinks for a friend's birthday so I'm hoping to get in an intense workout early in the day.

B:  sandwich:  potato roll (140) field roast slices (100) mayo (100) pickles and tomato (5) coffee! (40) 385

 Thank goodness I tried so hard not to get frustrated with my weight yesterday as it was down to a new low today... I was starting to worry that I just couldn't lose weight while eating!!!  This just shows me that if you stick to your calories you WILL be rewarded...   Incredible challenge coming up these next 5 days with my girls weekend...  The ENTIRE weekend will be about wine, food, and more wine... While its a challenge, I am SO in need of a weekend like this to just destress from everything going on in my life, I literally cannot wait!  And... I just found out that the girl's apartment that we are staying at has a small fitness room in the complex!!!  So... I may be able to get in a workout afterall!  Super pumped about this!!!!!

D:  maybe amy's no chicken noodle soup?? 200
S:  Probably a fair amount of wine and hopefully a SMALL amound of cheese and crackers...   800ish...

E:  Hoping to squeeze in SOME sort of workout before the girls plane gets in at 8PM-we shall see lots to do between work ant 8PM

Total Planned:  1830

Goal- I'm really going to try my hardest to keep calories around 1800-2000 each day... My goal is maintenance this weekend so I can pick right up with weight loss on Wednesday!!

Congrats on the loss! And I sure hope you are right about the scale moving for me soon. RYC, I use the regular Quorn "chick'n" patties and add hot sauce to them while heating. Super yummy! I hope you have a fantastic and relaxing weekend with the girls!

Ugghhh, weight is up to 210.somthing today... Seriously????   Now I remember how long and hard it NORMALLY is to lose weight...   Ugghhh...  I got a $5 footlong yesterday and ate 1/2 for a late dinner, maybe my body isn't used to the carbs???  Either way, I need to get back at the activity... I'm feeling MUCH MUCH MUCH better today thankfully, so I WILL be hitting the gym...   Also need to tighten up my diet-I've been sticking to my diet but my choices aren't as healthy...

 Weight back down 1# today-only 1 pound from my low...  I think... MAYBE, I'm feeling a TINY bit better today?  Even if I'm not, I'm telling myself I am.  I NEED to be better by Friday night...  Back at work today, and I'm hoping I have energy for the gym as tomorrow after work I have to go to a wake and do some grocery shopping for my weekend, so I may not get one in...  Not to mention I have to do all the cleaning at my house I was planning on doing each night this week... Yikes, I hate being sick, the best laid plans, blah blah blah...

Once I told myself that junk food (like I usually crave when sick) is off limits, the only things that sound good at all are fresh fruit and soup... I guess there are worse things I could be eating... I cannot taste anything!  I have all kinds of yummy food plans this weekend, so that had better change in a hurry!!!

Today's weight is up almost 2 pounds from posted weight!!!!!  I'm thinking its because I had salty soup last night?  My calories were definitely not bad yesterday, so hopefully its just the salt.  I'm leaving weight at posted weight today and I will update tomorrow whatever it may be...

I'm not feeling any better today... I had a low grade fever last night and I'm stuffier then ever, so I decided to stay home from work sick today :(  I'm really just resting up so I feel better for my fun girls weekend!  The way I see it now, even if I'm still a bit sick this weekend, I should definitely be on the upswing...

Today's plan is lots of rest, keeping calories low, and possibly going to see The Wolf on Wall Street with hubby and step daughter...

Hope you feel better. Don't get discouraged about the scale being up a bit.It was probably the take out soup.

Maria7 on 01/14/2014:
Yes, salt/sodium will surely make the scale number increase for a day or two (water helps get rid of the salt, also potassium food like bananas)...but you prob needed the extra salt since you've been under the weather...sometimes a high-sodium diet helps.

dana_johnson426 on 01/14/2014:
I bet it is the combination of salt and not feeling well. Get better soon!

allieoop on 01/14/2014:
Just salt, don't worry, be happy

Umpqua on 01/15/2014:
I agree on the salt, and getting yourself well is more important. I hope you got some good rest in yesterday and are feeling better!

 Weight is continuing its downward trend!  I was quite happy to see this number on the scale this morning... Yesterday was a productive day getting some food made for the week, but I have come down with a terrible head cold and really didn't get as much done around the house as I wanted to, I just have no energy.  I'm REALLY hoping that I feel much better by Friday for my girls weekend.  Yesterday was a low calorie day with a mix of healthy food (roasted buddha bowl) a juice smoothie, a protein shake and a small sort of indulgence of a grilled sandwich filled with 1oz goat cheese and sliced apples .  No gym yesterday.  Today I'm hoping to get to the gym to lift arms and, if I have any energy at all I will try to do some cardio, but if my energy stays low, just lifting...

Weight: 208.4

Weight was all over the place today from 207.8 to 209.4... I'm thinking a new scale battery...  Still fighting the cold, don't feel healthy, but I don't feel 100% sick either... I just want to be healthy by Friday when my friends come!!

Today I spent the entire morning making two healthy vegan recipes to eat throughout the week... I figured I might as well cook now while hubby (who is still juice fasting) isn't home so I don't torture him with the smell! 

The meals are a Vegan Coconut Curry Lentil Soup   http://vegangela.com/2014/01/09/coconut-curry-lentil-soup/

and a roasted budda bowl  http://ohsheglows.com/2013/03/05/roasted-buddha-bowl/

I put the roasted buddha bowl over quinoa.  The Buddha bowl has the nutrition information right in the blog and I calculated the soup and its 400 calories per serving if you use light coconut milk and about 500 calories per serving with regular coconut milk.

B:  coffee w/ 1T hazelnut creamer (30) almond/coconut milk (20) 50
L:  Roasted buddha bowl (400) 1/2 cup quinoa (120) 520
S: Smoothie made w/ green juice 300 coffee (50) 350
D: Grilled goat cheese and apple sandwich:  2 slices whole wheat bread (180) 1/2T butter (50) apple (60) 1oz goat cheese (80) 370
S: 1 scoop protein powder mixed with water 100

Total Planned:  1390
Goal: 1400

I will definitely have a juice and a protein powder, and possibly the rest of my curried lental soup, not to be confused with my coconut curry lentil soup, lol

Those recipes sound good. I will have to put the ingredients on next weeks grocery list.

I know vegan is so much more healthy, Living in the south most of my life I have always ate fried & meat. Giving up fried food a whole lot easier than giving up meat.

My grandfather was a butcher. We had meat at every meal. Trying to retrain my brain. At least to eat more fish and chicken.

Well my transition to food took a turn last night.  I had some GI issues that scared me a little, without getting into too many details and my husband and I thought it best to get somthing easily digestable into my stomach, so I had an egg sandwich.  I ate it slowly and had no bloating orr fullness AND whether its coincidence of not, my scary GI symptoms went away!!  Excitingly,, my weight is continuing a downward trend as I incorporate this food as today's weight was down .6 from yesterday!  Today's plan is some healthy food, at least one juice and one protein shake and keeping my calories low.  Also a workout is on tap.  Unfortunately I feel like I am finally catching the cold my husband had all week :(  Here is hoping it doesn't get too bad...

B:  coffee w/ almond coconut milk (20) and 1T hazelnut creamer (30) 1 slice whole wheat toast (90) 1T peanut butter (95) 1 small banana (80) 325
S: about 12oz juice made from:  swiss chard, carrots, 1 lime, 1 apple, 1 pear ~200
L: protein shake (100) gulp of husband's juice (30) 130
S: carrot, orange, and ginger juice 250

I am going to try your juice : Carrot. Orange & Ginger sounds good. Stay warm,(may be hard to do where you live) & maybe you won't get his cold.

This juice is my number 1 favorite! It is modeled after our favorite juice from the juice bar at the mall. It is amazingly delicious!!
