I'm doing okay

After some back issues I have started working my way back into exercise!  I did 30 minutes yesterday- and I have been watching what I eat as well.  However, today- I feel like a slug- so, not too sure what's up with that.  Hope everyone out there is doing well!

Watching the Biggest Loser!

It's been a while

I have been slacking in the dept. of keeping up with this blog.  I'm trying to watch what I eat and have good days and bad days.  However, I try to shake off the bad days and start fresh the next day.  I'm trying to keep myself more accountable- in the food dep. and the exercise dep.   Right about the time I was getting ready to go back to the gym, my back went out.  I wasn't allowed/released to exercise for over a week.  And, since then I haven't had time.  I know a lot of people make that excuse and it really shouldn't be one.  I am struggling with prioritizing my time- especially in this area which I know is so very important!  I'll work on it- I promise!  I am going to be very detailed in this because I have to type it up to give to someone and it's just easier to put it in one place!

1 low carb- 100% whole wheat tortilla- 70 calories, 7 g total carbs, 3 g fiber
1 TBS peanut butter- 95 calories, 3.5 g total carbs, 1 g fiber (this is half a serving- which I had the other half later)
1 SB cereal bar (I don't get any time for a snack between 7 and my lunch at 11)-

Grilled chicken salad with lettuce, spinach (I think- usually it does), half a hard-boiled egg, broccoli, cheese, 3 TBS Ranch dressing, grilled chicken, cucumbers (usually).  It's a decent sized salad
s-f jello
10 mini carrots

Snack- SB snack bar (at 2:00)
Snack- 17 100% whole wheat wheat thin crackers and 2 oz. of 2% colby jack cheese (around 4:30)

grilled chicken patty/filet from McD's-no bread, condiments, JUST the chicken.  My SB dining guide states that at their press time it had 180 calories, 7 g fat, 2 g carbs, 0 g fiber
Fruit and Walnut salad with no nuts- SB dining guide states- 170 calories, 1 g fat, 38 g carbs, 4 g fiber

snack after church- SF pudding, 1 TBS peanut butter (same stats as above)

Water- 24 oz. before 7:30, another 20 oz. by 11, 12 oz., plus 20 oz. plus the 12 oz. I'm drinking right now.  I think that's it.  I also had a 20 oz. diet mountain dew and about another 20 oz. of diet mtn. dew.  

Starting on Thursday I'll try to keep up with it as I eat!
