Life adventures through weight loss/maintenance

Tuesday, February 9, 2010


I feel like I live/eat out of Tupperware for 90% of my meals. I wish I was home more often. I wish I could prep my meals and then cook them to eat them right when they are cooked that same day and hour. God I wish I didn't have to work so much. Sad thing is is that I just can't quit my second part time job or drop my hours. The job I really enjoy at Big Brothers Big Sisters is sadly only a contract until the end of June. The executive director says that he really hopes to find extra funding to keep me on until the Board of Education refunds my position next September. God if I knew for 100% certainty that I would have that happen I would most definitely decrease my hours or even quit. But that just simply is not the case, and until then I will continue to eat out of Tupperware.

This morning I dragged my ass out of bed for spin class at 6am. I got there got my bike all set up only to find that the tension was not working. I couldn't turn the tension knob/dial was so stuck that even if I got off the bike and tried to strong arm it to move it didn't. So I had to go and get an older less comfortable bike. I was so uncomfortable in the position of the bike seat the bike seat itself (despite having a gel seat that I brought). So to keep myself motivated I looked to my HRM (heart rate monitor). I pushed myself to get to 400 calories burned. I reached that goal by burning 485 in the 35 mins of spinning.

For breakfast I had 3/4 cup of Quaker Oatmeal with 1/2 a banana. Forgetting to take my picture right away this is what was left when I remembered.
For snack I had 1/2 cup of Nordic No Fat cottage cheese with 3 sliced up strawberries.
Lunch was completely out of my control, also is still a mystery to me. I attended a Lunch and Learn with the Whitby Chamber of Commerce. This lunch was provided by the restaurant Baton Rouge. No nutritional information is provided on their website for their meals :( Anyways, as you can see I filled most of my plate with a mixed green salad with a tsp of Lime Ginger Vinaigrette dressing, about 1/4 cup of their Louisiana long grain white and wild rice, and about 2.5 oz of their chicken breast in some sort of bbq sauce and a corn salsa. It was all very tasty.
I packed myself 14 baby carrots for my afternoon snack which I ate mostly in the car ride between jobs.
Dinner I made a repeat dish, 2 cups romaine lettuce, 5 grape tomatoes halved, 1/2 mango, 6 walnuts, 4oz of broiled salmon, topped with 1 tsp of soy ginger salad dressing.
On top of not wanting to go to work because it tires me out they always have damn snacks out. VK I am totally calling you out on this! I know you brought these ever so delicious peanut butter filled chocolate hearts. I had 4 chocolates.
Today's total calories burned is 1,124 and total intake was 1,394.
Well off to bed, busy day tomorrow, muscle moves at 6am, Durham College student job fair from 8-3 then off to work from 4-8, go, go, go, go, go,
