Day 356: Tuesday Today!


So today was a cruddy day. The weather was dreary while it looked like fall outside, it was still humid and gross. (There’s nothing worse than looking out a window, thinking it should be 65 outside, but instead it’s 85 with 110% humidity. Way to give it your all Mother Nature.) Anyways, between that, not getting my caffeine fix because I chose water over coffee (go me? I guess?) and my allergies going berserk, it was just one of those days. It is what it is. Luckily, I got through it, and there was a light at the end of the tunnel: the Biggest Loser Season Premier! I wasn’t sure how the new trainers were going to go, but so far I think they are holding there own. I think it’s going to be a pretty good season. What was really exciting is that for the first time while watching a season premier, I didn’t feel guilty about not sending in a video to be on it. Even last season, I still felt like I needed to be on there, but this time around, I feel really good about where I’m at even though I’m still on the hunt to drop more lbs!

Breakfast: I had another bowl of cardboard Uncle Sams cereal. I don’t think it’s filling enough. It’s one of those foods that holds off your hunger, but then when you’re hungry, you get HOUNGRY *pronounced southernly.* I need to figure out something else on the breakfast front. Any suggestions? 4 points 

Lunch: Like I was saying, I need to eat more for breakfast because even though I have to eat breakfast at 11 on Tuesdays and Thursdays, I’m still hungry at that point. But I digress. Anyways, I brought a sack full of food goodies like Santa (yes, I’m already in the Christmas spirit) but like a fool I ate all of them during lunch. No bueno. So, I had an all-heel sandwich, pretzels, a nut mix, a cookie and a banana all during my super early lunch hour which was a total of 11 points At the time I was thinking I would be okay, but around 2:00, that was not the case… (TO BE CONTINUED… in the next paragraph.)




Snack: By the time I got to work, I must of had really looked pathetic because Andrea offered me some food. I chose her strawberry gummies which were 2 points. So awesome.







Dinner: Megan made the best spaghetti I’ve ever seen. That’s all there is to it. So awesome. 10 points. For dessert I made a cookie sundae with a cookie and some ice cream. It was epic and about 5 points. 

So today I got to 32 points so a little over but it’s okay. Tomorrow is Wordless Wednesday and my first day at Leach this semester. Get stoked. See ya tomorrow.

  1. Hi! (Ok this is sort of randomish) but I was a musicologist at FSU -I think possibly I met you and your wife at one of the musicology interviews. Anyways, I am also on WW (I actually sort of started because it worked so well for people I knew like Sarah Kahre and I knew I needed to make some changes in my life in order to be healthy). Anyways I found your blog I think because of facebook/Sarah and have been reading it for awhile. Congrats on the amazing amazing work you’ve done.
    Anyways, for breakfasts, have you guys tried almond butter? I am allergic to peanuts, so it’s sort of my go to nut butter. Almond butter on whole wheat toast plus a piece of fruit is 5 points, but it really has staying power till lunch time.

  2. Hey Erin!
    Yeah, Megan thought y’all had met at one point in passing. Anyways, yes, I flippin’ love almond butter! I need to get some more of it! Almond butter is really good on two waffles and sliced up banana with a little honey. You should definitely give that a shot. Thanks for the tip and thanks for reading!

  3. I have yet to find a cereal that will hold me over. I used to love the stuff but on my diet, it just lets me down way too fast.

    Have you tried adding beans to diet. I gotten hooked lentils in morning and since they are a slow digesting carb, they seem to keep me full for hours. An egg and a half cup of lentils or black beans or even refried beans really gets me fueled up.

    Love the blog man!
