What I ate yesterday:
7am: coffee, Splenda, 1/4 cup milk
8am: 2 eggs over easy, 1 slice of bacon, 1 sliced kiwi fruit, another cup of coffee w/1 Tbsp half & half
10am: Medifast bar
12pm: 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, 1/2 cup fresh blueberries, 2 Tbsp whipped cream
1pm: Medifast Parmesan puffs
3pm: Medifast hot cocoa made with coffee, iced
6pm: 3 cups of mixed baby salad greens, 1/4 c sliced apples, 1 Tbsp chopped walnuts, 3 oz cubed chicken breast, 1 Tbsp white balsamic vinaigrette
8pm: Medifast chocolate pudding
I am supposed to be eating
4 Medifast meals (check)
2 fruit servings (check, but had 1/4 c extra)
1 dairy serving (milk + yogurt, check)
Lean protein serving (eggs + chicken, check, but had about 1 oz more chicken than required)
5 veggie servings (nope, only had 3. I steamed some asparagus but never got around to eating it.)
1 Fat (check, the half & half and the nuts)
I also had that slice of bacon (35 calories) and the salad dressing (70 calories) which were extras. There is no counting condiments in Transition.
Total calories for the day: 1064
100 g protein
98 g carbs
35 g fat
I walked about 2 miles total and did my PT exercises. However, the scale is scaring me; it is still not going down. I know I am retaining water, eating too much salt, and have PMS right now. I still plan to move to week 4 of Transition on Monday, adding extra protein and dropping one more Medifast meal. I also know that for me to lose weight I have GOT to increase my exercise, yet this has been impossible because of my joint issues. So I am seeking out PT again in a new practice that will help me focus on improving joint stability in both upper AND lower body and giving me feedback on the reasons why I keep re-injuring myself every time I get active. I may need to get back on prescription medication or go forward with surgery in order to get my mobility to a place where I can truly exercise and get my heart rate up. I will update when I get a referral and an appointment.
That's all for now.
