[ mood | happy ]

okay, this is what I've had so far:

a bowl of cereal: 150 cal, 10 fat-- including milk

tuna fish kit: 240 cal, 90 fat

1 cup cranberry-grape juice: 170 cal

so, thus far:

560 calories, 100 fat.

That's not fucking bad! But, I'm hungry, so I might find a snack somewhere.

Man, fuck. [23 Apr 2004|10:21pm]

[ mood | aggravated ]

The entire week has gone to shit in terms of diet. So, my only solution is to begin again tomorrow. I noticed some of my former willpower returning today and hopefully, it will even stronger tomorrow. It's disappointing, aggravating, and discouraging, but it's not the end of the world.

i've been a bad bad girl [22 Apr 2004|10:04pm]

[ mood | disappointed ]

but I refuse to believe that I cannot do better.

Breakfast: Cereal: 130 cals 3.5 g fat
Milk: 120 cals 5 g fat

Lunch: Salad: 148 cals 1.5 g fat
Chocolate milk (1%): 75 cals 1.25 g fat
(first mistake) 1 slice of Cheese Pizza: 183 cals 10 g fat

Dinner (dear god kill me, i had to get estimates from food websites on these since applebees is a bitch and won't give the information out themselves. i think they have the same stuff as chilis, so thats pretty much what i'm using):
2 cheese quesadillas: 112 cals 5.3 g fat
2 mozzarella sticks:153 cals 7.5 g fat
3 fajitas:1065 cals Fat: 51 g
1/2 of this dessert thing at Applebees: 198 cals 11.5 g fat

Also: 16 oz of Propel Lemon flavored water: 20 cals 0g fat

Totals: Calories: 2204 Fat: 96.55

Exercise: 15 mins medium speed stationary bicycle and 15 mins walking/jogging on the treadmill.
I know I got about 700 cals off on the treadmill, cos it counts the calories on there.

Earlier today I thought of some more advice, but I've forgotten it already.

i will say this though...that desert was almost worth the extra cals. It was almost as good as sex.
Had it been that good, it would have been well worth it.

wow, today was really easy [21 Apr 2004|10:24pm]

[ mood | bouncy ]

I've found that there are actually alot of foods that are really filling and not so bad for you. Take a look at what I had today:

Breakfast: Cereal: 130 cals 3.5 g fat
Milk: 120 cals 5 g fat

Lunch: Salad 148 cals 1.5 g fat
Chocolate milk (1 %) : 75 cals 1.25 g fat

Dinner: McDonalds Grilled Chicken Ceasar Salad: 200 cals 6 g fat
Newman's own Ceasar Dressing: 190 cals 18 g fat
Butter Garlic Croutons: 50 cals 1.5 g fat

Snacks/Dessert: McDonald's Fruit n Yogurt parfait: 160 cals 2 g fat
Cereal: 130 cals 3.5 g fat
Milk: 120 cals 5 g fat

Totals: Calories: 1323 Grams of Fat: 47.25

I've started to realize some of the best food is the healthier stuff. Like the salad I had at McD's. I personally hate McD's. I usually hate fast food in general...except Taco Bell. But that salad was like no other. Maybe it was just the dressing, I don't know, but it was really good. Then I saw on the web site how few calories it had.
And they're the good kind.
Also, keeping track of everything I eat is really helpful. And eating only when I am really hungry.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot.

Exercise: 15 mins calestetics. Crunches, reverse crunches, push ups, and a few pilates exercises. I took my med too early and I can barely balance, so I kept it low maintenence.

A few things I remembered today:

Fidget. Alot. You burn a few more calories a day.
When you find yourself sitting for long periods of time, clench your stomach muscles for 30 secs/a min, relax, clench again. One time I saw an interview with a fitness person on TV and he suggested that. He said it's really good for your stomach.
sugar free jello makes a great flavorful snack.
so does yogurt, and parfait. fresh fruit and veggies are ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA. My personal favorites are strawberries because they have so much flavor.
Ice cold water ups your metabolism a little. And it feels good to your throat. Drink it alot. I mean it.
Man, I'm all type-y when I take my meds. I'll quit now. Hope my advice helps a bit.

dun nah nah [20 Apr 2004|10:00pm]

Well, kiddos, I went over today, but hey, it's not by too much. I'll be a trooper and say that much at least.

Cereal: 130 cals 3.5 g fat
Milk: 120 cals 5 g fat

Salad: 148 cals (love those online calorie calcs) 1.5 g fat
Chocolate milk: 150 cals 2.5 g fat

Dinner: (here's where I killed myself. Damn Taco Bell to hell. But thank god they have a nutrition menu on their website)
Chalupa: 390 cals 24 g fat
Pintos 'n Cheese: 180 cals 7 g fat (actually, this isn't bad for a snack when I really need something with a kick later)
Chicken Quesadilla: 540 cals 30 g fat
Small Pepsi: 100 cals

Total: 1758 calories 73.5 g fat (ouch)

Exercise: Again, the performance wore me out. Once I get to the workout plan, I'll be able to find a calculator online that can calculate the approx. ammount of calories I burn when I work out. until then I'm not going to worry about that.

[ mood | curious ]

1/2 cup peas: 60 calories, 5 fat
1/2 cup peaches: 50 calories, 0 fat

2 church's chicken legs: 500 calories, 164 fat


10 pc Chicken McNuggets: 510 Calories, 297 fat
25 Reeses' Pieces: 50 calories, 25 fat

Total: 1,881 Calories, 651 fat.

That's a bit more than yesterday, but it's coming down from where I used to be.

It seems I've fallen off the vegetarian course. I tried it and it just wasn't for me, it's as simple as that. I will however, keep up the semi-vegetarian diet (excludes all red meat).

I need to go work out for about a half hour or 45 minutes. Something. I've already done some movement today, aside from school. I practiced some dance techniques, and I'm planning on doing some yoga moves, though I'm not sure I should. My abs have been worked a bit lately, so perhaps I should lay off for a minute.

I'm getting sick, too. And that sucks.
