Day 4 ... am I done yet?

Day 4 is much better than Day 3! Not sure if this is because of being at work or not. We do have a BUNCH of goodies in the office, candy, cookies, etc...that sucks majorly, but I keep telling myself it's from last week, so it's old and nasty. LOL

Breakfast: My fiber / grain poptart
Coffee ... coffee and coffee ... very VERY little creamer.

Lunch: Grilled Chicken Breast topped with crab meat and swiss cheese. 5 chips.
3 glasses of Iced Tea - unsweetened of course!

Dinner: Will be, Salad topped with Grilled Chicken.

The hardest part is walking away from a plate that all wasn't eaten. At lunch, I could have devoured it all, but instead, walked away.

Starving children, I'm sorry. :(

My beautiful family...

The cousins...

The entire family...

Day 3 ... ready to quit!

I feel so hungry, but I know I'm not...I've eaten like I'm supposed to, portion size, etc...It's got to be in my head! Bah Humbug.

Smoking 3 cigs. so far, will be 4 before the day is over I'm sure. Not a good day on the smoking.

Frank SCORED a Wii Fit today ... so add in 9 mins of exercise :)

Day 2: this sucks!

Phew. Tough work when lots of food is around, dinner was hard, was at mom's house!!!

Ok, Day 2:

Slice of raisin/cinnamon good for you bread w/out butter ...

Same as above

Chicken w/onions and green peppers cooked in olive oil.

2 pieces of cheese and 3 of those big brown nuts (can't remember the name); a few carrots, celery

1/2 Salad w/Raspberry Vinaigrette dressing; beef BBQ w/out the roll...Lots of celery and carrots and a few more pieces of cheese. A handful of chips, UTZ are my fav and they were right there :(

Not too bad today, but not as good as yesterday. My food intake is definitely less than normal, this is good.

My drinks are either water or iced green tea or iced tea (unsweetened) ... I love my tea and love it unsweetened so that is a good thing.

Tomorrow Frank is trying for a Wii Fit at Target ... I so need this!

(Forgot...1 1/2 cigs today)

I'm thinking ...

if I write this on my blog I will continue to follow through. This is tough for me. Weight loss that is. I love food. Put it in front of me and I will devour it all and then some....

So, here is my Day 1 of the "CG Weightloss Competition"

1 Whole Grain and Fiber Poptart
(I know it's not the best choice, but I love my poptarts, and love these, so it's better than the normal cinnamon sugar I'm typing this I'm drooling for one of the 'real' cinnamon sugar poptarts...omg must stop self)

Lunch -
Salad Wrap - wrapped in 'green' tortilla it grilled chicken, romaine, shredded cheese and some bacon...
I had maybe 5 fries ... but that is a big step for me, I usually eat ALL the fries.
The best thing at lunch, I ATE 1/2 THE WRAP! GO ME!! LOL

Snack - 1 big piece of turkey

Dinner -
1/2 Salad - romaine lettuce, zucchini slices, feta cheese and balsamic Vinaigrette (low fat); Grilled chicken breast with tomato slices and some kind of sauce that wasn't thick, so felt it was a good choice; steamed brocolli; 2 bites, yes, 2 bites! of mashed potatoes....

Tomorrow 8:00am Frank is at Target to get me a Wii Fit...this is what I'm using my Christmas money from my mom for. I do believe I will use this.

OMG I forgot, the best news...I smoked a total of 2 1/2 cigs today!

Lord Help Me. I need to do this (weight thing) sssssssssssssooooooooooo bad.

Till tomorrow...
