Day 8

Good morning!! I will make this short and is payday so it's a super busy day for me. I split water all over my expensive keyboard on Friday so I'm stuck with tiny old one. =(
This morning I had a fight with my scale, it kept reading different numbers. I was between 144.5 and 145.5. Either way, I'm up in weight and expected that. I still lost about 2 pounds in the past week which I'll take any day. It felt really good to get back into the gym yesterday!! Here is my plan for today...
B- Dry Cereal/Coffee-150
S1- Apple - 100
L- Sweet Potato and Veggie Burger - 350 (does anyone know how many calories in a sweet potato?)
S2- Z Bar Chocolate Brownie - 120 ~ if needed (ate this already OMG so good!!!)
S3- Shoved 5-6 Crackers down my throat when I was stressing @ work -100
D- Leftover Pizza and Veggies - 350
S- Cinnamon School House Cookies from Trader Joe's - 130
E- Worked 11 hours today but still managed to walk Roxie 30 minutes
Calories = 1,300


  1. Thank you! =) Sweats rock. Ugh I was 144-145 this morning too. I deserved it. I was NOT good this weekend LOL time to sweat it off at the gym!

  2. Do you work in accounting? Just curious b/c you said that payday was today for you.

  3. Yes, Accounting/HR and Payroll. I've been entering bank statements today on top of everything else. What a crazy day!! =) At least I'm not thinking about food.

  4. Sounds like fun!! I want to work in accounting! I hate math, but i think payroll would be fun.

  5. It's a very rewarding job. I HATE math too but accounting is pretty awesome! =)

  6. According to, 1 cup of sweet potato is 180 calories, which I guess is because it's a "potato," but I've always wondered... is a sweet potato considered a carb or a veggie??

  7. Thanks for looking it up for me =) I looked around on google and found this...
    CSPI ranked the sweet potato number one in nutrition of all vegetables.
