It is getting very difficult to remember to log in now that Nutrisystem has become sort of my lifestyle and not a drastic change. Additionally, I am eating a lot of the same foods so not too many new ones to try.
-Breakfast: Double chocolate muffin (Nutrisystem), low fat milk (powerfuel) and sugar free chocolate syrup (extra).
-AM snack: Tuna (PF) and light mayo (X)
-Lunch: Spicy kung pao noodles (NS) and 2 servings of vegetables. These looked just like ramen noodles. The description said noodles, vegetables, and peanuts in a soy sauce. This did have a nice kick to it but I wouldn’t say it was super spicy. The peanut flavor was very prevalent. I liked it but I don’t know if I liked it enough to order it again.
-PM Snack: Wheat bread (smart carb) and peanut butter (PF).
-Dinner: I did not have time to eat dinner. See below.
-Evening snack: Bacon ranch chips (NS). These were light and airy chips but very strong bacon flavor. I really liked these. A lot came in the bag so great value perception. I would order these again.
Sunday night I was a bartender for a friend. Their restaurant was having an employee party during the Super Bowl and they offered an open bar for their employees. I was there from 5 pm to 9 30 pm and did not get home until after 10pm. By then, I did not want to make dinner right before bed so just had my evening snack and that was it.
-Breakfast: Flex breakfast – wheat toast (SC), egg (PF) and low fat colby jack cheese (PF)
-AM Snack: I tried eating my peanuts but they had been in the baggie too long and tasted like plastic so I threw them out.
-Lunch: Hamburger (NS) and 2 servings of vegetables.
-PM Snack: Wheat bread (SC) and low fat colby jack cheese (PF).
-Dinner: Italian Sausage & Turkey Pepperoni pizza (NS) and two servings of vegetables.
-Ev. Snack: White Cheddar popcorn (NS)
-Breakfast: Waffles (NS), peanut butter (PF) and sugar free maple syrup (XX).
-AM Snack: Unsalted dry roasted peanuts (PF).
-Lunch: Meatball Parmesan Melt (NS) and two servings of vegetables. This was delicious! Just like a meatball hot pocket except the “pocket” was seasoned. Large chunks of meatballs. Definitely will order more.
-PM Snack: Banana (SC) and a low fat colby jack cheese stick (PF).
-Dinner: I originally brought my dinner to my friend’s house with the intention of eating it. But due to peer pressure, we ended up going to Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner. I was going to compromise by eating a plain grilled chicken wrap (but only half) and only a few fries. I did stick to that portion of the compromise and only had half the wrap & a few fries. But we decided to get chili queso dip as an appetizer and I ate more than half. Definitely did not feel good about my choices. Especially since I already had a happy meal (Cheat meal) this week.
-Ev. Snack: Skipped due to heavy dinner.
-Breakfast: Turkey sausage & egg muffin (NS), low fat milk (PF) and sugar free chocolate syrup (X). For some reason, the packaging was open. I think this happened in my freezer and not before it got to me but luckily it did not seem to affect the flavor which leads me to believe it just happened.
-AM Snack: Skipped. See below.
-Lunch: Today we had our work outing for lunch. I made healthier choices and only got two chicken tacos (just chicken & a little bit of cheese). I originally was not going to get rice and beans but did end up ordering it because I was so hungry. I did indulge in a few chips & salsa but not many.
-PM snack: skipped due to outing.
-Dinner: still full from lunch. Skipped.
-Ev. Snack: White chocolate chunk cookies (NS). These were described as buttery cookies with white chocolate & hazelnut chunks. Did not get any hazelnut flavor but definitely could taste the butter flavor. They were pretty good and good value perception but not my favorite so I am not sure if I would order again.
Overall, this is week 2 without going to the gym. Work has slowed down so I no longer can use that as an excuse. I will consider Sunday acting as a bartender as exercise because I was walking back & forth for over 4.5 hours and my legs were tired from it. But, other than that never made it to the gym. Next week my plan is to go Saturday & Sunday (easily obtainable) and I am going to challenge myself to go one time Monday through Thursday. Not expecting good numbers at the weigh in Friday (in two days) but it is what it is. I think it is reasonable at this point in my journey to start to struggle keeping on plan. I just hope for the next two weeks I can really buckle down & lose enough to offset any weight gained on my cruise.
