The Quest to be Fit

Tracking my journey to better health

Tues to Wed February 18, 2009

Quickly my friends, as I’m tired.


Rather blue about my weight loss/fat loss progress… a client told me he’s lost like 20 lbs in 5 weeks on the South Beach Diet and I wanted to crawl in a hole with my measly 10 lbs in 3 months.  I mean, you guys see how I eat, it’s not that terrible, it’s no more than 1500 cals/day most days, and I exercise a lot.  I seriously think my only-half-an-hour of cardio January fucked up the progress.  Whatevs, I’m still motivated and pushing forward.

Usual oats:


Turkey and ww butt sando, Kashi TLC crackers, F-f-f-fuji!


The rest of my crackers with lowfat cottage cheese.


The infamous Casuela from Fajitas.


The ever familiar tortilla soup with jalapenos.


The most decadent drink ever…La Casa.  Creamy heaven in a glass.


I hit up the gym after dinner (I had just a few sips of the Casuela and gave that and over half of my La Casa to Chris), and felt a little out of it from my funk.  Did one of the four week bikini workouts, an ab workout, and 15 glorious minutes on the elliptical.  I didn’t do as much cardio intentionally; trying to do 45 minutes 4-5 times per week and thought I could use a lighter day time wise.

I ran by the store for a veggie and fruit stock up fest on the way home since I was feeling bad about my progress.  Figured I’m not eating enough fruits and veggies anyway, so buying a lot and integrating them more would be good.


Better day mostly, but I’m so tired. 

Loving the Maranatha in my oats.  If you remember from when I first put it in my oats I said it wasn’t flavorful enough there, but I was wrong.  Today it really shined through and was perfect.


Different lunch today…a little too light.  Spinach salad with turkey and cucumber, carrot and celery sticks, and grapes.


Dinner was ww linguine with Prego sauce and a little canned parm.  Classy, I know.  Tasty, but I forgot the pic!

Master Recyler class was good:  construction & demolition reduction/reusing/recycling; green building & renovation; and event recycling.  Great presenters and some tasty eats:  small homemade kumqwat (sp?) and cranberry scone, few tbsps Costco trail mix (waaaaaaay too salty).


And that’s all she wrote, folks.  Here’s hopin’ your Wednesday was wonderful 🙂

    I LOVE costco trailmix and it makes me feel horrible :/ I know that whole South Beach thing is discouraging..but I’ve heard that diet is like, the definition of Yo Yo..and you can’t maintain a diet with NO carbs ya know?? I knew a girl who did it and just ate the cheese and meat off pizza when we went out…which was still all greasy and gross…so it’s just kinda weird?? It sounds like your doing so great AND you are helping save the planet SO boo ya!!
