Food Picture Tracking - Oct. 30

Sunday, October 30, 2011

BREAKFAST (7:45 a.m.)

Special K Red Berries cereal and milk (not my picture, but the one on the internet looked better than mine. LOL)

LUNCH/DINNER (3:30 p.m.)

Sushi rolls (tuna) w/spicy sauce on the side; small 12 oz cup of chicken noodle soup; and saltine crackers

SNACK/DESSERT (6:30 p.m.)

Wegmans mini coconut macaroons (a definite treat since it's 110 calories for 2 little cookies and I elected to have 4! But I always feel like I can indulge a little on Sundays since I miss lunch while in church. So, I'm fine with it.)


10-minute exercise challenge: WiiFit FreeStep, 10 mins
ST one body part goal: Modified Plank, 2 sets

    GOURMETLOSER: Check my blog in regard to "The Next 20 Days: Segment 4 (Oct. 27th - Nov. 15th) to see what my current goals are. I change/tweak them every 20 days. So, while I'm not taking a multivitamins daily, I am taking calcium supplements. I don't mention them in my food blogs. They are tracked in my "other goals" and as current streaks. The steaks show on my sparkpage. At the end of the 20-days, I share my progress with those goals at the same time as I am instituting new ones. Stay tuned! :-)

TEMPEST272002: I definitely didn't eat enough this particular day because I felt it. I was hungry. But Sundays are like that sometimes. I usually try to have a big breakfast to sustain me because once I leave out of the house to go to church (which could be pretty early depending on whether I'm going also for prayer) that's it until church is out. As I mentioned, I usually just get breakfast and dinner on Sundays.

    Where have your supplements gone? (Not saying you need them but thought that was part of your plan.)

    I adore sushi. Hubby makes better sushi than most restaurants & has come up with some really good combos - like mango, avacodo & smoked salmon. Yum.

It appears to me that you are not eating enough. Just doing a rough estimate, this is less than 1000 calories. I know that the fasting you do is for religious reasons, but I think you should consider eating more on non-fast days to help your metabolism recover. Just something to think about...

    I like sushi. I haven't had any in a long time. I get the lady to make a California roll with hot stuff on the inside and red pepper on the outside..yum yum.

    1NANA4EVER and TERP_TERP: I usually just sprinkle my veggies with some Wegmans Basting Oil (or olive oil) and various seasonings and/or herbs. I set the broiler on low and just watch them... easy beezy! :-)

TERP_TERP: Check my blog titled, "What's Different This Week..." for the fasting info. But, in general, I fast regularly. It's a spiritual thing...not weight loss thing. Whatever happens with my weight as a result, just happens...whether positive or negative. That's not my focus when I'm fasting.

    Your dinners all look delicious. You have inspired me to try to grill some veggies. What method do you use to do the grilling?

Report Inappropriate Comment
TERP_TERP 10/29/2011 9:26AM

This looks good! :) Do you follow the recipe on here for the grilled veggies or just do your own? Do you put anything on them when you grill them?
I am curious why you were fasting? My experience has been when I eat too few calories, especially if I am working out, then I do not lose any weight at all.

Best of luck!

BREAKFAST (6:45 a.m.)

Pancakes w/butter and syrup; 5 prunes

REMINDER TO CONCERNED SPARKERS: I'm in church all morning thru afternoon on Sundays so there is no time for lunch and snacks, etc. It's usually just breakfast and early dinner on Sundays.

DINNER (3:00 p.m.)

A seafood salad 7" sub from Wegmans, along with sweet potato chips (not healthy...don't let the name fool you) and Fanta Zero fruit punch soda

WATER TOTALS: 3 cups (Boooooo!)

    Looks like you were in the mood for some crunch yesterday! That cookie is adorable too. I bet it was the best thing that you ate since it obviously was made with love! I've had the butternut squash lean cuisine before and enjoyed it.

Hope you're having a good day today too!

    I had to stop by today to see what you were eating. I remember reading that you were having success with your weight loss since you started taking pictures of your meals. I can see are seeing how much you are eating and then you can relate to how it affects your body. The cookie was the best part of your meal. It was made with love.
