My Eats and Weight 12/29 – 1/4

I’m going to post my eats and weight every week to keep myself accountable with eating healthier … here we go!

Sunday 12/29/19

Weight: 160.5 lbs

Breakfast – an apple and a banana.

Lunch – chicken breast, broccoli, tomato, and sweet potato with light Thousand Island dressing and a light sesame marinade …. and a light beer.

Dinner – we had an impromptu date night at home (basically because Luke and I went to United and found New York strips buy one get one free … and bought 8!) … we had a salad with light Thousand Island and S+P … heirloom tomato …. and, naturally, a New York strip with bleu cheese!

We were both craving something sweet, so we walked to Sweet Charlie’s! Luke had the Namaste, and I had Death by Chocolate.

(I had a feeling that I wouldn’t lose much weight tomorrow, ha, but it’s worth it to enjoy a grand meal with my man!).

Monday 12/30/19

Weight: 155.8 lbs (sorcery that I lost 5 lbs in a night after that smörgåsbord but hey, I’ll take it).

Breakfast – leftover steak.

Lunch – sauteed beer brined chicken with broccoli and ginger sesame sauce.

Dinner – rotisserie chicken on a bagged kale salad with poppy seed dressing and a bite of tomato with bleu cheese.

Tuesday 12/31/19 (New Year’s Eve!)

Weight: 154.6

Breakfast – an Envy apple with Tajin.

Lunch – about 1/3 of a foot long Italian sub with about 3/4 packet of ranch.

Snack – roasted broccoli with light Thousand Island dressing and a bit of Parmesan.

Dinner – champagne (duh, it’s NYE!) with black eyed peas cooked with onion, mushrooms, and bacon …. and steak at midnight with some very expensive Scotch.

Wednesday 1/1/2020 (HAPPY NEW YEAR!)

Weight: 157.8 lbs (ha, those NYE eats bumped my weight up!)

Breakfast – I slept through breakfast.

Lunch – a chopped bacon Caesar salad with mango habanero chicken.

Dinner – Brussels sprouts and tea (because I totally was boozed out).

Thursday 1/2/20

Weight: 158.0

Breakfast – I slept through it and had to wake up to run errands with my Dad without time to grab a bite.

Lunch – Torchy’s Tacos with Luke

Dinner – a chopped salad (I didn’t eat it all) and a sandwich.

I also went today for a consultation for a tattoo which I’ll get on Sunday!

Admittedly, on this night I became depressed over my weight loss – will it ever happen? I feel like I can’t meal prep for shit.

Friday 1/3/20

Weight: 157.8 lbs

Breakfast – a hot cider from Roaster’s

Lunch – half of an Italian sandwich with ranch

Dinner – sushi and a salad topped with fresh spaghetti sauce and Parmesan.

Saturday 1/4/20

Weight: 158.0

Breakfast – Roaster’s hot cider.

Lunch – a hummus, turkey, provolone, and lettuce sandwich on organic bread.

Dinner – roasted chicken, avocado, and a Thai salad mix.

The above is probably a good example of how I “should” be eating – I had some indulgences this week, and that’s probably why my weight has remained steady.

Alrighty, this installment will continue next Saturday!
