Weight-Loss Tracker

Saturday, November 28, 2009


Well I went home for the holidays (two days). It was a good visit! I didn't eat too much, but I probably ate some things I shouldn't have. I did eat turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and deviled eggs. However, I watched my portions so that I didn't eat double what I needed to. I only allowed myself one small slice of pumpkin pie. Fiance did much better than I! He ate only turkey (dry, no gravy) and some raw veggies. He also ate a small slice of pie. That's it! Go him!

We're leaving for Hawaii soon (Sunday), and so I'll be gone from the internet world until my return, December 9. I hope to come back tan! =)

Wacky Weigh-In Wednesday: 11/25

I weighed myself today.

Dun dunn dunnnn!!!!

Weight: 252 (down 2.6 pounds! yay!)
Fat: 48.6% (down 1.1% yay!)
Water: 33% (up 0.8% good? bad? no idea!)
Muscle: 20.8% (up 0.5% yay!)


My stats last time:

Weight: 254.6
Fat: 49.7%
Water: 32.2%
Muscle: 20.3%


I really didn't want to go to the gym this morning, but I'm glad I got up and did (and weighed myself). It motivated me! This is definitely a plus since last week I was stable. I am also glad I didn't eat that pizza last night we were thinking of getting. :)

Daily Report: 11/24

30 mins on the elliptical


1/4C trail mix (I forgot my other half in the car and it made me SO HUNGRY.)

1 yogurt (not a gross flavor this time yay!)

2 wheat/pumpkin pancakes w/butter (I know. Weird. But they were leftover.)

1 Rachel's Cottage Cheese

Jason's Deli mediterranean wrap. It was something like 350 calories. I also had some of Fiance's baked lays and I had some of the chocolate mousse.



Steps: 9150
Calories: 457
Miles: 3.45

This is without my gym time included. I like seeing how much I walk, not including the gym.

Daily Report: 11/23

30 minutes on the elliptical


1/2 C trail mix (split before and after workout)

1 bite of yogurt (gross flavor! do not get cantaloupe....)

1 pulled pork sammich
Green beans

1 Rachel's cottage cheese

Etouffe (chicken) & rice
(too much rice, but I was so hungry)

Pedometer: I put it on after my workout. (Why do I keep leaving it on my desk??)

Steps: 9364
Calories: 492
Miles: 3.65

I got a lot of steps in today! I made a point to take a walk during my lunch break. I also walked to Fiance's work (we both work on campus) instead of having him pick me up. We also had to run some errands. Yay! With my gym time, I hav about 5.65 miles today. Woo!


When I got out of the shower yesterday, I thought my calves looked smaller. I took a second look and they did look smaller! I even asked Fiance and he agreed with me. However, he could have been lying, haha. Men can't be trusted. ;)

I'll need to find my measuring tape to make sure. I measured myself back in June on SparkPeople and haven't since.

Also, out of sheer curiosity I hopped on the scale and I am (unofficially) down 2-3 pounds! That's exciting and I feel encouraged and motivated to keep going (since I didn't lose anything at my last weigh-in.). Hopefully my official weigh-in on Wednesday will reflect this.

I'm calling this a maybe victory. Woo!

Low-Fat, Low-Cal Chocolate Muffins

I found a recipe for low-cal/fat muffins on SparkPeople the other day and decided to make them.

They were delish and didn't last long! (I had company. I didn't eat them all by myself. Hehe.)

Here's the recipe:


    Pumpkin, canned, without salt, 425.2 grams
    Devil's Food Mix (Duncan Hines), 1 serving
    Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (GV), 20 tbsp


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Mix all the ingredients well. The batter will be thick. distribute the mixture into muffin tins lined with paper. Cook for 15-20 minutes. Mixture should make 18-24 muffins. The calorie calculations I used for this recipes is based on 18 muffins. Servings = 1 muffin. (For even less calories use less or no chocolate chips)

Number of Servings: 18


I forgot to add the chocolate chips but they were still good and satisfied my 'chocolate' cravings. The chocolate chips would only make it better!

Weekend Report: 11/21-11/22

Well the weekend was semi-kind to me. I haven't posted b/c I had a friend some visit from out of state, and I have been working on a paper I need to finish before I leave for Hawaii.


Oatmeal, etouffe (chicken) with rice, pulled pork sandwich w/fries and a salad, 2 muffins (from SparkPeople)

3 pumpkin whole-wheat pancakes, FF milk, some popcorn and soda at the movies (Fiance and I shared a kid's meal thingy), spicy beans & sausage, few bites of chips & salsa, muffin (from SparkPeople)

That's the gist of what I've eaten. I may have forgotten some things.

I didn't wear my pedometer or go to the gym. Back to these things tomorrow!
