AARGH. It's raining. It's rained all morning. AND, its suppose to rain for the rest of the day. Boo. Boo to all this rain! I know rain is good for the earth and all that, but do we have to have it in great big doses all at once? AARGH. RAIN RAIN RAIN! I think this means I am stuck inside all day because I am NOT going to drag my little man out in this mess. I can't even go alone because hubby said he is going to spend the entire day doing school work. So, I am stuck here all dang day in this mucky yucky rain. I need to make the best of it. I need a plan of attack. I think I'll do some more laundry (don't I almost every day?), I think I'll call the vet to find out about the bordatella(sp?) shot, I need to do some regular pick up and decide on dinner. Other than that, I know I need a good workout today and I know I need lots of water/liquid, and I know that food needs to be spot on after last night.
How do you all deal with an off plan meal or going out to eat? I just get back on plan with the next meal. I enjoy the meal out, but I try to jump right back in ASAP. I don't punish myself the next day by restricting more than usual or anything. I just go right back to what I was doing. I know many people who the following day restrict their cals even more to try to balance out what they had the day before. I don't do that. If my calories are a bit lower from food, it's purely my bodies craving and a coincidence and nothing more. I don't think I did horribly last night. I know I shouldn't have had the fried noodles or the rangoon, but meh. It is what it is. I didn't eat a ton. I ate mostly the soup and veg. YUM. I have leftovers for today. Today is going to be leftover Wednesday. So now dinner is decided! We have tons. I am going to have the soup for lunch with half of an avocado and maybe some rice. I think dinner will be whatever meats are leftover and the veggies plus more rice or something. We will see. Anyways, I don't do any extra restriction. It doesn't serve me well to do that. I seem to get super hungry if I do and it just isn't worth it.
Do you work out extra? I did think about doing an extra workout today. I have been known to do two workouts in a day, so it isn't too much of a stretch. I am thinking about doing the bike, Pilates, and deep stretching. That would make my total workout time closer to an hour versus just the 30mins. And I can do the Pilates and stretching now and do bike later after hubbs is done with school work. :) But is that a good idea? Is it good to work out a little bit extra to try to burn off a few extra calories? Or does it just set you back? I have to confess... a part of me only wants to because I didn't go for a walk yesterday with the dogs. I was just too tired and doing too many other little random things.
Oh, and as I expected, weight was up today -- 188. :O Sodium is such a bitch. Soy sauce is just so dang full of sodium! I tried not to eat a ton of it, but it was there for sure. I have no idea of what all is in the soup so it probably has a ton of sodium, too. Guess I better get to chugging water! Well, after I finish my coffee. I will have a water or two, a tea, and then more water, and a coffee, then water. LOL I'll be lucky not to float away with all the rain! HA HA HA!
2 slices of bacon -- 80
2 slices of toast -- 120
1 Tbsp. of butter -- 50
1/2 Tbsp. of honey -- 30
4 oz. of blackberries -- 50
Breakfast Total -- 330
Hmmm... I somehow came in lower this AM. I think because I had blackberries instead of a pear or apple. I normally eat berries for breakfast. Maybe that's why I've been over the last couple of days!
1 c of steamed rice -- 147
1/4c spicey chicken coconut soup ?
1/2 avocado -- 80
1/2 c veggies in white sauce -- ?
Snapple tea -- 10
Lunch total -- ~ 450?
I have no idea. There was very little soup left and I didn't want to waste it. I also had some of the veggies but it had a 'white sauce' on it so I have no clue. I'd say I was right at 450 when all is said and done.
2 soft chocolate chip cookies -- 130
3/4 apple -- 50
Snack total -- 180
1cish green beans -- 40
2 fish filets -- 240
1/2c mashed potatoes -- 140
White cheddar/ranch powder -- 8
1/2 Snapple tea -- 5
Dinner total -- 433
Not bad! I don't think I had too many green beans... I was probably not actually at one cup but I'd rather OVER estimate than under. Not sure on the potatoes -- I feel like it was less than that, but meh, I'd just rather over than under. Overall, pretty happy with that!
Popcorn -- 420
SF syrup -- 15
Dessert Total -- 435
My total was probably closer to 350, but I had no measurements of what my hubby ate out of my bowl. And it was my bad that I had that many. I had the numbers for AIR POPPED popcorn in my head and then it hit me that I was eating micro popcorn which has WAY more calories. UGH. So, I screwed that up ALL ON MY OWN! AARGH! I'm normally so diligent. Anyways, hubbs ate some of the popcorn and I know I didn't use a full serving of the syrup. But still. I'm bummed.
Today's Total -- ~1828
I'm a bit disappointed, but not overly. I rounded up, and only went over by about 200 cals. NOT BAD as I originally thought. Glad I'm writing this all down or I'd be feeling like CRAP. On a good note, I did a few things today even with feeling yucky and hating the weather. AND, I got in TWO workouts! TWO! I did a full round of Pilates, deep stretching, AND 30mins on the bike. GO ME! And did I mention I've been drinking water like I was a fish? AND I had two teas today? AND another almost black tea? Plus some coffee? I've drunk so much liquid I really do feel like a fish! LOL Hopefully come Saturday I will be flushed out and I will see that glorious 186 again... or lower. :D. OK, it's late and I need to get to bed. NIGHT!
