Well, I bought The Biggest Loser Weight Loss Yoga this weekend and completed the first 30 minutes of it (level 1) before I went to work today.  Then after school I completed Level 2 of the 30 Day Shred and Level 1 of The Biggest Loser Boot Camp (I go back and forth between Level 1 and Level 2).  

And, according to Sparkpeople I had 1,665 calories (which was 25 over), 266 carbs (16 over).  Again- not a typical day of eating (Today was an inservice day so we went out for lunch and went to Subway which meant I had both lunch and dinner taken care of.  So, I'm going to try to do more tracking on Sparkpeople because it takes the guesswork out of it.

Starting the food recording with a new week

Sunday's intake

1 banana
1 serving cheerios (with 1 cup skim milk)
2 multigrain waffles

2 slices turkey on a croissant with 1 cup of lettuce and cucumbers
1 handful of chips with dip 

snack- handful of animal crackers, 1 banana

1 cup mac and cheese (whole grain)
1 cup peas
1 apple
1/2 cup grapes

This is not my typical Sunday meal.  I don't normally have carbs at lunch or chips.  I was at a meeting and it was either the turkey or chicken salad and since I can't have celery I couldn't have the chicken salad.  

I have also had 60.7 oz. of water (so far- I have another bottle to drink)

I've been busy

with school, life, trying to eat healthy, and exercising regularly so I haven't posted much.  But, I will say that I have been working my tail off.  It's a bit frustrating- my clothes are looser, I can tell I have lost weight (inches?), others have told me they can tell and yet, the scale seems STUCK!!!  Very, very, very frustrating.  I'm going to keep at it though and something will give!  I'm also going to make more of an effort to record my food intake (both here and sparkpeople).  I think that may be part of my issue.  In fact, after watching The Biggest Loser this week and seeing how not eating the complex carbs was affecting the father-son team made me do some thinking.  So, I'm going to start with recording my food and go from there!
