Movin' to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches

Why that was a hit song, I still don't know! But, it's damn catchy, and will not be stuck in my head for the rest of the day. You're welcome!


This week was......well, it was a challenge. Everything was going relatively well. Sparkpeople has me eating between 1200-1550 calories a day. Great. Normally, I'd eat about....oh.....lots more than that, so this is kind of a lesson in measuring and counting. I thought I'd hate it, but I really don't mind it. I'm kind of a geek that way, though. I like to know things, even things as stupid as how many calories are in that banana (105). So, I've been mostly cruising along. Last Wednesday I went over my cal count by 66 calories
(Thank you, Cherry Garcia!) A transgression, but not a horrible one. I was below count the day before and the day after, right? It all evens out.
Well....then there was Friday. Johnny Rockets. It wouldn't have been quite so bad if I had planned for JR earlier in the day. But, after an 8hr meeting, I was in no mood for planning. I was ready to eat! And I was so good during the day! I said NO to the donuts someone brought to our meeting. I said NO when the Jimmy Johns lunch menu was passed around. I ate the lunch I had brought. But boy did I make up for it.

The burger wouldn't have been so bad by itself. Cheese, yes, but no mayo. It might have put me over my count for the day, but not by much.

The fries were reasonable. Did you know Johnny Rockets has unlimited fries. I only had one serving, LOL, but my tablemate got seconds.

I even had diet coke!

THIS was terrible. Honestly. I don't even know what made the order come out of my mouth!



NSFW Food porn.....



Before you get all excited there, ladies and gents, that right there is 1,180 calories. Nearly a FULL DAY of calories. Now, I didn't know exactly how many calories was in it (and I had to search the web for a minute or two before I found reliable JR nutritional info) but I knew it wasn't calorie free. LOL. I ordered it and ate nearly all of it by myself. (and I will not lie, it was damn tasty!) Did I have buyer's remorse? Yeah.....I guess..... I've been under my cal count for the rest of the weekend and today! Go me! (yeah, but not enough to make up that huge gap on Friday.)

The workouts:

I think my knee is officially healed now, provided I don't do anything stupid to it. I did my normal 40 minute treadmill workout on Sunday and it was fine. Last week, I took it pretty easy. Treadmill for 15 minutes on Tuesday, 25 minutes on Thursday, swimming lessons on Thursday afternoon, and treadmill on Sunday. This week, I hope to be back to normal 5 day workouts.

So, the results? Well, mixed. It was a gain either way, but my choices were .1lbs and .6lbs. I'm gonna go with .4 and call it an average. And, I suppose, if that is all I had after eating 8 days worth of calories in 7 days, I'm okay with that.

But this week WILL be better.

Happy Tuesday!

It's nice to know that I wasn't the only back slider last week. LOL.

Hi..I will scoot over to make room for another one who fell off the wagon. It was a tough week all around for everyone, I think. Of course, every week has been tough for me...but that is another story. Hang in there Robin!

I agree hang in there and to be honest I think I would have probably ordered that too, because it really is food porn! *sigh*

I thought twice about posting that pic because I don't want to be temptation for anyone, but I couldn't help myself. LOL. I just like to LOOK at it. LOLOL.

That dessert is just cruel! I have a freezer (in basement) full of Girl Scout cookies. I will NOT open the freezer or a single cookie, or I will be a goner. It's so hard when you want so badly! Now I'll go suck on my one chocolate chip and dream.
