Guess Who's Back?

I felt so much better after going to spinning class yesterday.  I also did Tummy Tuck from BBL and I worked my upper body with some weights.  I did make an effort to do Bum Bum from BBL, but my legs just were not having it.  I was so hard for me to even get through spinning, and I have no idea why.  Maybe it's a good thing I ended up not working out Sunday.  My legs really felt like they were going to just snap in half.  I warmed up and I always make sure I stretch.  Weird.

So I think we all know what I did last night.

It's baaaaack!  Oh how sweet it is.  Actually, I didn't miss it as much as I thought I would.  I only missed it when I thought about it.  When I stayed busy though it really didn't bother me that I wasn't having it.  Maybe tonight I won't have any.  And this was the ONLY dessert I had yesterday.  No brownie, no little Twix bar, nothing.  That's a big deal. 

I did pretty well overall with my eating yesterday.  I had my Cheerios, I made a protein shake with the strawberries and some baby carrots for my morning snack.  For lunch I had 1/2 cup Perdue shortcuts turkey on a whole wheat, high fiber tortilla (yes I finally switched from my white flour tortillas, another NSV!) with fat free cheese, lettuce and some buffalo sauce.  Also, yet another NSV here, I didn't eat lunch when it was lunch time.  I was still full from the shake (which was totally disgusting by the way but at least I tried!), so I had lunch about an hour and a half past when I normally do!  I was still starving though after lunch so I made myself a nice big salad.  Today I think I'll have a spinach salad instead of my regular lettuce.  I also had a Martin's dinner roll (90 calories/2PP) with some no calorie butter spray.  That kept me full until dinner.  I had a fat free hot dog and a 100 calorie pack of Doritos, my ice cream and later I had a pretzel.

So I mentioned I've started using My Fitness Pal, right?  Please tell me how me, Queen of Carbs, falls short of how many I'm supposed to eat in a day?  On a regular basis I am over on my protein, on point of my calories and come up short on my carbs and fat.  Yesterday I was 22 g short on my carbs and 31 g short on my fat.  Not sure what to do about this.  I mean, I COULD eat more carbs, I won't complain!

My goal for today is to try the quinoa I bought over the weekend.  So excited to try something new.  I tried something new yesterday (the shake) and I will try something new today.  I think I found my challenge for the week.  I need to try one new thing every day.  I think that's a good challenge, don't you?


  1. Yes, I absolutely think trying one new thing everyday is a great challenge.

  2. Yay for MyFitnessPal! It's awesome, right? I love the pie charts for the proteins, carbs, and fat. Well, not the fat so much! Oh and the barcode scanner is pretty awesome too!

    I found these amazing low carb, high fiber tortillas by La Tortilla Factory. They don't break apart and they have a good taste. I had tried other ones and I didn't like the taste or consistency. Of course I did have corn and wheat tortillas with the FOUR fish tacos I had for dinner last night. Eeek! The tacos were so good I couldn't stop eating them, my first double serving, only 600 calories total though. :)

    1. Haha, those are the same ones (tortillas) I just picked up Saturday! I love them!
