One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident

JOURNAL

2 VERY Different Days

Sorry I was missing in action yesterday.  I spent the very little time I had posting Mommy and Me Omelets on GreenLiteBites. Maybe this 2 blog thing wasn’t such a good idea.  I love working on both of them equally and now I’m torn at night. Tonight was even worse because I HAD to write about my Fast Food Fiasco.

Anyway, I still journaled yesterday so I wanted to post both menus (with a little self-observation of course.)

Day 1

Yesterday was my typical 12 hour day at work (these are coming to an end soon, YAY). I packed a bunch of stuff, planned, came home and made a light snack.  I dipped into flex because I was hungry, and I don’t believe in going hungry.

Daily Activity Log

Day 2

The complete opposite of yesterday, I had a meeting off campus, didn’t pack a lunch and ate every meal on the run, except breakfast. I did find out the toddlers “fwavortie” cereal is strawberry frosted mini wheat’s.  I know this because he told me at breakfast.  I LOVE 2 year olds! ;~D


Day in Week: 5Morning Scale Reading: 143
Target: 20
Food Points
frosted mini wheats, 4 oz of milk, a banana split with the toddler 5 15
Subway Veggie wrap with with provolone cheese, lettuce tomatoes, green peppers, cucumbers, carrots, pickles and sweet onion sauce) 6 9
5 starburst (my office mate has a HUGE bag in out office and I finally caved after 3 months — hmmmm happened when I wasn’t prepared, coincident?, I think NOT!) 2 7
Fast Food Fiasco (estimate, I’m totally too lazy to look up the sandwich plus I only ate 1/2 of the bun and some fries) 12 -5
soy crisps 2 -7
Total 26  
Water Consumption: not enough, the scale will be up tomorrow, no DOUBT Flex left: 10
Daily Activity Log
climbed the wall before the cardio kick boxing class

So there you have it, the last two days. Even tough I ate the same number of points, I felt much better yesterday eating all of my own food. Plus I had more variety, ate more often and was overall more satisfied.

In other news, I will be working on the community this weekend and possibly a food journal generator tool.  I’m really excited about it! But for now it’s off to bed for me!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Good for you on putting your foot down. What happened to you happens to many, and far too often and you’re right, why allow it? Why pay good money for bad food, bad service and bad customer service?
