Back to Work Thursday

ALMOST FRIDAY! HOORAY! Although I can't complain too much because I had Tuesday and Wednesday off this week. I was on over New Years weekend and then I worked the day after New Year's (That monday) which is considered a holiday which meant I got a paid day off during the week. Since I already have Wednesday off I decided to do Tuesday and Wednesday. And boy was it nice. But I came back to a lot of business and drama at the office. OH WELL!

Today was so busy I didn't have time to bring my lunch or anything, so I stopped off at Panera and go half a cup of chicken noodle soup and half a mediterranean veggie sandwich with an apple as a side! Check out the nutritional info here:

I did GREAT for my calories. Crossed out the meal on my own requirement on my goals list...I did a Kashi pizza for lunch yesterday. Now you may ask, does that really count? You just opened a pizza box. Well, to you I say, I added portabello mushrooms...and also, half my struggle is when I cook a whole big pizza (with more than one serving) I want to EAT the whole damn thing. So I allotted my one portion of pizza and the rest is in the fridge for another day. SUCESS!!

One thing I need to say about my Panera meal is HOLY HANNAH SO MUCH SODIUM! I wish there was something I can do about that. Sparkpeople told me that with all my food today, including dinner tonight and my snacks, I had 3533mg sodium where I should have between 500-2300mg ideally. NOT a good day on the sodium. But I am in perfect range for fat, calories, fiber, cholesterol, carbs and protein so...all in all I still say it was a win win!

Having trouble getting my water in but I know today of all days (with excess sodium) I need to get on that. I've only had 4 glasses today, I need to step it up!! And I got my exercise walking in the COLD and taking the stairs, woohoo!

NSV:

1) I will not let any one tempt me with leftover holiday goodies. - No temptation here!

2) I will take time to read a magazine cover to cover without any interruptions.

3) I will take down all of the Christmas and Hannukah decorations and put them away.

Exercise:

1) I will exercise for at least 20 minutes each day. - 4 Days Down

2) I will work up the courage to try the 30 Day Shred

Nutrition:

1) I will track my calories religiously on Sparkpeople.Com EVERY DAY! - 4 Days Down

2) I will drink at least 80oz (10 glasses) of water EVERY DAY! - 3 days Down - Working on 4!

3) I will do at least 2 meals on my own on my Jenny Craig program.
