Total Steps: 11,745 (work out + walk)
Total Calories: 1316 (estimated)
Water Intake: 64oz
Weight Loss: +1.2 (-15.1 lbs loss total to date) weight way up
Another total surprise but of the "OMG what happened" sort. I have no idea why the sudden weight gain. Maybe too much sodium yesterday? Perhaps the fact I barely got 7 hours of sleep last night? I have to say that this is not all that uncommon for me when I'm "weight watching". When this happen to you (and most likely it will) you need to just shrug it off, say tomorrow is another day and move on. If you let yourself get all crazy over it you'll just make the situation worse. Of course if it becomes a pattern; that's another story. That's my sage advice.
Speaking of sodium (I mentioned it above) I noticed my daily sodium intake is huge compared to my prior "normal" diet. Clearly its all the processed food. Yesterday for example my sodium intake was 300mg over RDA which is about 1500mg per day in my age group. I'll have to keep an eye on this.
As typical for me on work-out day I'm rushing out the door as fast as I can. I had my usual workout-day Nutrisystem Turkey Sausage and Egg Muffin. No time for extras but I did guzzle 4 oz of low-sodium V8 juice.
This is a Nutrisystem Turkey Sausage and Egg Muffin, deconstructed.
My workout seemed killer today. I still blame my lack of sleep but maybe there was just some other cosmic reason. I came back and dragged myself to the blender to make my usual Nutrisystem Nutricrush Shake. This shake has too many carbs. I need to order up my Dr. Keith's Chocolate Cream protein shakes again. Now I have to run off to a quick (I hope) appointment then come back and get yesterday's blog completed and posted.
My appointment was quick and I got my blog posted very late, but posted. I did make it back for lunch. I heated the Nutrisystem Grilled Chicken Sandwich. I did find one more tomato on the vine, enough for a couple of slices. I made a little batch of gochujang mayonnaise ( teaspoon each) because the sandwich always benefits from a little zip of flavor. I had head lettuce in the fridge so I added that too.
I had a meeting about snack time so I just grabbed 1/2 ounce of Toscano Salami from the frig as I ran out the door. As it happened I ended up having an unplanned "flex meal" for dinner.
I had not factored another flex meal for this week but it was a little out of my control. It was either go hungry for hours or wing it. So wing it, I did. I had a small bowl of steamed clams in broth. The broth was not clear so not knowing for sure it's contents I did not sip it. I just ate the clams. Not a very well-rounded meal. When I got home I foraged around in the frig and ferreted out some fresh Parmesan cheese and weighed out one ounce and ate it.
I really didn't eat much and I walked to and from my meeting (got all 11k steps in) so Even after my ounce of cheese I was still hungry so I treated myself to a Nutrisystem Fudge Bar. This is the first time I've had one and it was pretty good. It is a 100 calorie snack.
The good news is I got all my steps and a work out in today. The unplanned flex meal was not my first choice after the recent uptick in my weight. Again, I'm not going to fret just try once again to get back on track tomorrow. Until then, happy meal planning!
