Birthday Dinner (Wednesday)

Macaroni Grill -

             Choose Your Own Pasta: Spaghetti, Garlic Cream Sauce, Fresh Spinach, Roasted Mushrooms, Roasted Tomatoes (655 Calories) 


             Mushroom Ravioli (900 Calories)


             Double Vanilla Gelato (290 Calories)

             or Small Vanilla McCafe Shake (540 Calories)

             Total: 945 Calories or 1195 Calories, or 1190 Calories or 1440 Calories (Let’s try for this one not to happen)

Ruby Tuesday’s -

             Zuccini Minis (874 Calories)


             French Fries (426 Calories)

            Total: 1300 Calories

Tips for Self:

- Eat one entree

- Eat one entree that comes with one side

- Eat one appetizer and one side

- Eat two appetizers

- Eat two sides

- Once a month, share an appetizer, eat an entree with a side, share a dessert

- Pay attention to calorie information if it’s available

- It’s okay to indulge (see above) but don’t binge and go overboard

- Try to stay around ~1200 calories if possible for a free meal


- Use common sense

- Limit buffet visits

- If at a restaurant where calorie information is not provided, stick with just an entree or one entree that comes with one side

- Try to only use the sauce provided (wiggle room here)

- Limit or Avoid Opening Bread and Chips (1 piece or slice of bread with butter or sauce, 5 chips with dip)

- At holidays, make one plate of your faves, and then have one small slice or piece of dessert with a dollop or spoonful of topping

- If at a school or work party the above still applies. If there are dishes you haven’t had, try a little of everything you want to.

This allows for freedom without binging and guilt. Free day can mean going over a normally set calorie amount without the pain, physical damage, and guilt that comes along with horrible, terrible binging.

Is likely not going to happen this week. At all. :(

I need to come up with a list of fun exercises to do that aren’t dancing around my room randomly/DDR. I need some variety I think.

Wednesday, January 4, 2012


111.4 lbs! That’s 1.4 down from about the 4 I gained.

(Before the Holidays: 109 lbs.

After the Holidays: 112.8 lbs.)

1.4 down, 2.4 to go!
