Weight Loss Challenge - 2015 Day 30

Well folks, I didn't do very well this first month of the weight loss challenge.  I got a good start; but finished way behind my goal.  You know if you don't follow the plan, you won't lose weight.  Or at least not very much.

I neglected to keep track of what I was eating after about the 2nd week.  I haven't made it to the gym. I haven't drank the recommended water intake.  Oh my.... I am so embarrassed to have started this blog series only to let myself and my readers down..... but I'm human; and so are you right?

But.... on a good note: I should be receiving my advanced fat fighters from It Works! in the coming days.  They have shipped and since I believe they are located in Dallas; it should only take a couple of days to arrive here in New Braunfels.  I sure hope these supplements help in my weight loss goals.

I guess my total weight loss over the last 30 days was a mere 3 lbs +/- an ounce or two.  I was hoping for at least 5 lbs.

Wish me luck that I can get back on track in the days ahead.

Regards,
Blondie

Weight Loss Challenge 2015 - Day 12

We aren't going to discuss calories today.  My department went out for lunch and totally blew my calorie recommendation out of the water.  Speaking of water, at least I had water with my meal.  No soda or tea.

Sorry to have such a vague post today.

Weight Loss Challenge 2015 - Day 11

I'm so silly!!! Last night I thought I was over my calorie recommendation.  Then I added my calories and thought I was under my calorie recommendation.  So.... later I realized I added my dinner calories to the calories left for the day for 994 total.... well that was WRONG!  So, I was right in the 1st place...

My food intake:
Loaded coffee,
Fruit & Yogurt Parfait (McD's)
6" Subway Black Forest Ham Sandwich
2 Sugar Free Vanilla Wafers (yes they still had calories)
1 Small Original Schlotzsky's Sandwich (536 calories)

Total estimated calories:  1278 (still not too bad).

My water intake:
~ 80 ish ounces

My exercise:
40 minutes on the treadmill.  2.5 - 3 MPH; incline between 1 - 3.

Pretty good day, I'd say

Weight Loss Challenge 2015 - Day 10

WOW!  I've made it 10 days now.  Feeling pretty good.  Pants "feel" looser; but it could all be in my imagination.

So today started as usual with my daily loaded coffee.  You may wonder what I mean by "loaded".
Well I like a little coffee with my cream and sugar.  No really, my loaded coffee comes with 1 TBSP of sugar AND 1 TBSP of Original Coffeemate per mug.

My food intake:
Loaded coffee
Subway 6" Black Forest Ham sandwich on Wheat (no cheese)
Special K snack bar
2 Taco Bell Crunchy tacos
2 cinnabon mini bites

Estimated calorie intake:  1016

My water intake:
< 82 ounces

It was my teenagers youth church night; so I didn't make it to the gym.

Weight Loss Challenge 2015 - Day 8

I made it a full week!  YAY!

It was a typical day.  Just tracking what I ate.  No exerecise; for some reason I was really tired after work and did not make it to the gym.  But based on my low activity my calorie intake is the recommended amount of 1200 calories.

So on Monday June 22:

My food intake:
The usual loaded coffee
Special K Blueberry Bliss
Burger King Salad (1/2 salad dressing, no croutons)
The bag of croutons as a snack later
2 Taco Bell Crunchy Tacos
8 Nilla Wafers

Estimated calorie intake:  1091 (a little short).

My water intake:
~ 74 oz (a little short of the recommended amount)

I think I can eat what I want as long as it is in moderation; and I don't go over 1200 calories per day.

Have a blessed day,
Blondie
