Yesterday afternoon/evening was not good. It went all down hill at the catering event where I got to sample all the yummy new catering offerings. Ugh. Then I came home and probably ate 7 fun size snickers. I should have just eaten one damn regular size and been done with it, but of course no one buys regular size when you can buy a bag of fun size. I also had some dove chocolates. However, I packed my lunch and breakfast and was ready for today.

The alarm went off and I just could not get out of bed. I decided to skip going to the gym this morning, BUT I brought my stuff with me so I would be able to work out after work. And I did! I did cardio for 60 minutes on the elliptical from hell. It also made me realize how much more I like working out in the morning.

I had a filling dinner of egg beaters mixed with Canadian bacon, peppers and onions. I also had some baked steak fried and some cake batter.

I have made my lunch for tomorrow and I am ready to have a great day tomorrow.

Today one of my co-workers cried to me in my office about her weight. She would be the one I call lazy co-worker. She has complained to me before and done nothing about it. Today was different because she went to the doctors and was over 200 lbs. This was the first time in her life she had weighed over 200. She seems really ready to commit this time. I told her I would make a list of all the foods I eat to give her ideas. I also told her she can't change it all at once or she is setting herself up for failure. I guess all I can do is try to help and support her. Another co-worker and I took our afternoon break and went and got a soda and an oatmeal cookie. I am definitely not going to beat myself up over the cookie. I wanted it and it was with in my calorie range and it wasn't like I ate 20 of them. Lazy co-worker seemed shocked that I would eat the cookie. It's not about deprivation, it's about moderation.

I have been so good today. I have made great food choices and worked out at the gym for an hour and a half. I drank plenty of water all day long too. I just hope that tomorrow I will maintain. I am not expecting a loss at all. Even if I were to gain I think I would be ok with it.

I love cake batter. Oh. My. God. It is just that good. Soooooo, a while back I started mixing cake mix water and eating the "batter." While it's not the real thing it certianly does the trick.

Here's to another on point day.

The past week has been awful. My food choices were just plain bad. Some of the low lites include 3/4 of a bag of dove milk chocolates, mexican fajitas and about 1 basket of chips, 2 poppy seed muffins, pizza, one 8 oz bag of potato chips, lots of chocolate candy at a program I went to (I had so much that I don't even have any clue how much I ate). However, yesterday I got back on track. I worked out at the gym yesterday and today for 2 hours each day. Hopefully, that will help to reverse some of the damage I did this week.

I went to the grocery store today. The best day and time to go to the grocery store in the South is early Sunday morning. At the store I bought lots of produce including lettuce, tomatoes, celery, green onions, yukon gold potatoes, avacado, coleslaw mix, mushrooms, carrots, gala apples, and green grapes. I also bought kashi cereal, FF Sour Cream (so I can make homemade ranch) and Reduced fat mayo.

I am ready for a week of healthy eating! Bring it!
