This week so far...

Well, we're single-handedly keeping Subway in business, I'm pretty sure. We used to be a grab-a-pizza whenever we were on the go type family...and now we grab subs. We still usually get one pizza a week, but it's a big improvement!

Today I tried egg-whites for breakfast. Let me backtrack a bit here. Last week I bought some generic egg-beaters and it was DISGUSTING. Seriously, ewwww. So I decided to try just straight-up egg-whites instead, even though it requires my hands getting seriously egg-y in the process...again, ewwwww. Well, I made two egg whites and topped them with salsa and let me tell you, it was really good! Score!! So, that was breakfast, along with a piece of whole wheat toast.

Lunch was half of a 6 inch (so should I say I had a 3 inch?) Subway black forest ham sub, with no cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, green pepper, banana peppers, and honey mustard. I had a salad on the side and some baby carrots. My plan is to have the exact same thing for dinner, with perhaps some string cheese? We'll see how hungry I end up being!

My workout: I try to build on my workout each week in some way. This week, I upped my treadmill time to a full hour (from 50 minutes last week) and the distance totals around 3.5 miles (up from 3 last week). I haven't done ANY strength training yet this week...oops. Note to self: get those weights out!!

I did a cheat weigh in yesterday that I'm keeping to myself right now. It was one of those times that seemed too good to be true, so I wait a day or two to see if it sticks...anyone else do that?? :)


  1. I can't believe you're going three and a half miles a day on the treadmill, Miss. That's awesome!

  2. Thanks! It's so not pretty though...

  3. Great job! I like to grab subway too. A lot healthier than some places!!

    I know what you mean about the scale. Sometimes I get on...what??, get off, get back on...really?...get off, and back's true...I lost....lbs!

    Your not alone. However, I'm trying to just weigh in once a week! It works for me!

  4. I like Subway too. It has also become a regular stop for us if we eat out. Sound like you are doing good. Keep it up!
