Ooookay then….two weeks of Seattle Sutton’s pre-made meals for weekdays and my own plan for weekends….didn’t really get a good test of it, last week was challenging!

The plan:

  • Eat Seattle Sutton’s meals Monday dinner – Friday lunch
  • Make smart eating out choices or cooking at home choices with Ryan (husband) Friday night through Sunday night

What really happened:

  • Monday & Tuesday – right on the plan, plus Tuesday morning hour long INTENSE bootcamp!
  • Wednesday – last day for a co-worker – went out to lunch (Chipotle veggie bowl & chips), met for happy hour – 3 whiskey sours – went out for dinner to a fantastic burger place  (Red Cow – Edina, MN)- burger/coleslaw (yay not fries!)/1 beer (tap takeover from Bell’s YUM beer)
  • Thursday – exhausted from staying out late Wednesday night, ate fine through out the day, took a nap…went to see Above & Beyond at Skyway Theater – had Redbull and Vodka (not a lot but still, empty calories, caffeine/Red Bull was very much needed!) – oh did dance a lot plus I did personal training half hour bootcamp in the morning
  • Friday – running late, brought breakfast & lunch to work didn’t eat them – at 12pm ate 3 chicken fingers/1/2 serving of fries – at 7pm ate fish fry/tartar sauce/a few fries & walked around Northeast Minneapolis at Art A Whirl – 2 beers & a tiki drink that night – plus a personal mushroom pizza — 12,000 steps that day though!

Goals for this week:

  • Monday – Friday Seattle Sutton’s meals for breakfast, lunch & dinner..I don’t have any other plans that are challenging this week, its a great week for a focused re-set
  • Tuesday & Thursday half hour bootcamp workouts with personal trainer
  • Monday & Wednesday – walk the doggie!
  • Friday night: rest up for my BIRTHDAY WEEKEND
  • Saturday night – its my birthday, brunch in the morning with friends & bar crawl in the evening – I’m a reasonable person…but seriously, anything goes, MY BIRTHDAY!
  • Sunday – rest up, help decorate for my friends wedding, enjoy friend’s wedding, make smart choices, dance and have fun 🙂
  • Monday (Memorial Day) – Eat Seattle Sutton’s for breakfast/lunch – enjoy birthday FAMILY dinner of yummy grilled steak/baked potatoes/veggies

What went right:

  • 2 planned workouts and one day with 12,000 steps and another day with 5,000 steps

Next week should be better 🙂 Right?

  1. Every day it is a struggle to do the right thing in all aspects of life. We just take it one day at a time, right? I think it is so important to watch your sugar intake. If you monitor that, everything else will fall into place. I hate to say it, but if you went cold turkey on the alcohol, even for just a few weeks, you will be shocked at how the pounds will fall off. I know you and Ryan like to party, so maybe cold turkey wouldn’t work for you but you could have a wine sprite or a martini instead of your mixed drinks and beer. That alone will shave hundreds of calories from your daily intake. Have you tried drinking warm lemon water first thing in the morning or water mixed with a bit of apple cider vinegar dying the day? It helps with weight control. Remember, sweetie, eating healthy is a lifelong commitment so you just have to experiment and find the little tricks that work for you. Luvya

  2. That was supposed to say “wine spritzer”
