Day 114: Wednesdayness

Sup Champs!

Before I start my typical ranting and food pictures, I just want to congratulate my good friend Christi for joining Weight Watchers Online! I’m really excited to watch her progress and celebrate her success. Definitely check out her awesome blog, The Frugal Novice. She has some great tips on saving some change and really awesome giveaways so check it out…. now!

Breakfast: I just had a bowl of cereal (4 points) and I forgot to bring a snack to my noon class so I was pretty hungry the whole time.

Exercise: So Matt and I had planned on getting some lunch and then get our racquetball, but then we decided to play first (which was smart. I’ve never played racquetball when I was full but I imagine it would not end pretty.) Anyways, it was a lot of fun and I worked up a really good sweat.

Lunch: As you can imagine, I was pretty hungry. We decided to try Jersey Mike’s which is pretty new to Tallahassee. It was the first non-subway sub I have had in… forever and it was pretty good, but no Jimmy John’s. I had the Turkey Breast and Provolone because the sign said the turkey was 99% fat free. Way to be tricky Jersey Mike! I got home and looked up the nutrition information and it was rough. My sub still had 15 grams of fat and it was 11 points. It also had almost 70% of my daily sodium. Pretty nuts, you could say I couldn’t get any nuttier OR CAN I!?! I kept looking at the nutritional info and most of the hot subs actually have trans fats. Those are still legal???? Pretty crazy. Overall, it was good, but I’m not sure when I’ll be back.

Snack: Megan and I went and studied at Starbucks. They just came out with a “skinny” Carmel Macchiato so I gave it a shot. It was actually pretty good and didn’t taste much different. I had the Iced Grande and it was 3 points.

Dinner: So far this week we have been pretty good about eating early, but tonight we ate a little late. I put some chicken in the oven and while that was baking, I made an awesome salad with all the fixins. 4 points. Then I steamed some broccoli to go with the chicken. It was really good. The chicken was only 3 points too!

So overall today, I ate 25 points while is not a lot but the sub really filled me up, but not in a good way. I’m really at the point where I don’t care how many points food is, rather I care about what I put in my body. Anyways, TOMORROW IS MY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!! Which not only means I’ll be 24, but I’ll find out if I beat my challenge to break 300 before tomorrow. I’m really nervous to weigh in tomorrow but we will see how it goes. Either way, I will break 300 and if it doesn’t happen tomorrow, it will happen soon. [Thinking thin] See ya tomorrow.

  1. Hey Nathan,

    So I have been following your blog and you are doing awesome, may I offer a few tips. I recently lost about 30 pounds and lost about 4 lbs a week. I drank a lot of water, like more than 8 glasses a day, only ate whole grains, and not a load of carbs, ate veggies at every meal even in my egg white omelet. Then had a lot of protein which keeps you full. I loved your comment when you said its not really about points as much as what you put in your body. It is important to really eat fat fighting foods that are good calories, not empty ones.

    Good luck tomorrow and I know you can hit your mark! You are doing great!
