Walk the Talk Tuesday

Tuesday
Breakfast: coffee w/skim milk
Lunch: 3/4 c. Lemon Chicken & Rice Soup, one toasted English muffin w/margarine, 1 c. skim milk
Afternoon snack: 1 c. iced tea, small bowl Old Dutch Mexican Chili chips.
Supper: one rather large serving of Redneck Corndog Casserole (the recipe says "serves 4," but I think 6-8 is probably more accurate), generous handful of carrot and celery sticks w/Ranch dressing dip, two honkin' fresh strawberries, 1 c. iced tea.
Evening snack (this is where the day gets ugly...): another bowl Mexican Chili chips, one can of pop, 3 slices of cheddar. FOUR Oreo cookies. Ugh. Not a great "half" day!

Wednesday
Breakfast: coffee w/skim milk
Lunch: 1-1/2 cups 5-Alive fruit juice, 1 c. hot V8, 1 nectarine
Supper: THREE servings Potato & Salmon Cakes (or casserole, in our case!) w/tartar sauce, cucumber slices w/Ranch dressing.
Evening snack: popcorn with margarine & salt, tall glass iced tea, 3 slices of cheddar.

Ugh, so much ugliness yesterday and today. Why is it when I'm already over-full, the only thing I feel like doing is eating some more? Anyone else have that problem? Pleeeeeeease tell me I'm not the only one!!

Thursday
Breakfast: small cornmeal muffin, one serving Hearty Breakfast Casserole (leftovers from the weekend), 1 c. V8 Splash, coffee w/skim milk
Lunch: one toasted English muffin w/margarine, 1 c. skim milk

Mowed lawn for 40 minutes

Afternoon snack: handful celery sticks, 1/2 c. skim milk (leftover from one of the girls at lunch)
Supper: one small helping Redneck Corndog Casserole, (which The Bushman thought was the best invention EVER!!) large serving tossed salad w/croutons and dressing, large glass iced tea
Evening snack: 5 Rosemary & Olive Oil Triscuits, 3 thin slices of cheddar (have you been able to tell that cheese is a bit of a weakness for me?!)

Friday
Breakfast: coffee w/skim milk
Lunch: leftover tossed salad from last night (approx. 1 c.) w/a bit of shredded cheddar, a few croutons, and dressing; 1 c. V8 Splash

Mowed lawn for 45 minutes and with only about 10 minutes left to do, the handle fell off the mower, so that was the end of that. True story.

Supper: one orange, 1 c. Salsa Beef Chili w/some shredded cheddar and a dollop of fat-free sour cream; and WAY TOO MANY nacho chips for dippin', of course. One large glass iced tea.

30-minute, 2-mile walk

Evening snack: one slice bread w/margarine & Nutella, medium bowl of Salt & Vinegar chips, 1/2 can coke. BAD, tammi.

Saturday
Breakfast: 3 pancakes w/syrup, coffee, skim milk
Supper: Potluck supper with people from the church and community. Ate moderately and controlled myself quite well, I thought.
Evening snack: 1 can coke, 2 bowls Salt & Vinegar chips ~ so much for a good day!

Sunday
Brunch: two fried eggs, 4 strips of bacon, 1 c. V8 Splash, 1 c. skim milk, coffee

Drove for 6 hours to my parents' house. The plan was a success and my dad was surprised for his birthday!

Afternoon snack: one cold 4" mini-pizza (while driving), 2 handfuls mini Ritz cracker & cheese 'sandwiches,' 2 c. V8 Splash
Supper: small handful Bing cherries, small serving nachos, large piece of chocolate cream pie (the birthday "cake" in my family!)

Monday (@ my parents')
Breakfast: coffee w/1% milk, orange juice
Lunch: 2 small bowls cheeseburger soup ~ YUMM!!, small sliver chocolate chip cookie pizza
Supper: one 3" square piece of pizza, one helping of tossed salad with dressing, large glass iced tea, 1 c. 1% milk, small piece chocolate cream pie

I think I should start doing a post like this every week too, to keep track of what I have all eaten and to keep myself even more accountable.

Don't be too hard on yourself, everyone has a bad week once in awhile.
