My name is Stephanie and I am a carboholic. I think. I've allowed myself too much carby crap and it needs to stop.
Yesterday breakfast was a 100 calorie " deli flat" roll with a slice of Boar's Head chicken and a dab of light mayo.
I busted my ass doing heavy spring cleaning all morning, about 4 hours.
Lunch was a slice of pizza. I was exhausted and was able to keep it to one, but pizza is a total slider food for me and I could have easily eaten more. (Where's the protein and veggies? Completely missing.)
Dinner was with Shrinking Mommy and her daughter. We went to a great Mexican place, had some chips, salsa and guacamole. I ordered the spinach and chicken enchiladas on whole wheat tortillas, and hold the rice. I had one of the two enchiladas, some of the beans, and the rest is in my fridge for tomorrow.
I had a string cheese and a Weight Watchers ice cream for a snack.
Calorie-wise, that's not terrible. I calculate under 1400 calories with a huge workout. BUT, it's so very carb heavy.
I've been doing that a lot lately. And the scale hasn't moved.
(Well, it's moved a little, but in the wrong direction.)
Something needs to change. I need to go back to basics. Cut the processed carbs. Focus on protein, produce, and fiber. I'm seriously considering a 2 week Atkins induction phase to get things moving again. I should have seen Onederland by now, and as of this morning, I'm still 8.8 pounds away. Oof.
Also, I have a new blogger alert. Sue is being banded on April 4, one week from tomorrow, and could use some support. I "met" her through the Smartbandsters Yahoo Group and she's going through that same roller coaster of emotions that we all go through before surgery. Please stop by and say hello!
