Panic Mode

The weekend is here....time to panic.  This is where everything always goes downhill.  I go into every weekend with a "plan"...but rarely does it work out.  When you've got someone else involved in your wknds, things can go awry...and they usually do for me.  I have to weigh in for the challenge on Sunday morning.  Let's pray things go smoothly for me tomorrow and I can stay on track.  I think expecting myself to stay under 1200 on weekend days is, quite frankly, laughable.  The goal for me is going to be my maintenance calories, the ones I started the challenge with....1870.  Here's my food pics for the day...I have the calorie counts but just don't feel like posting it.  I came in under 1200 because I didn't eat all of my dinner.  My stomach has been in knots all day....I don't know why.

2 eggs, 1 egg white, 1/8 c. cheese, veggies

8 oz. shrimp on salad w/ 60 cals olive oil/vinaigrette dressing

Sweet potato

The sandwich platter that my supervisor picked up at Costco today for lunch for all of us....turkey, ham, roast beef sandwiches on croissants w/ cheese and mayo spreads.....this hurt, lol.  If you want to know if I ate any, see the shrimp salad above.  :)


1 c. 100 calorie Barilla pasta sauce with mushrooms, onions, bell peppers and spinach over 2 c. of spaghetti squash (42 cals/cup).

This is how much of my dinner that was left...stomach hurting today...couldn't eat anymore...but it was DELISH.

Have a good weekend everyone.  :)


  1. That shrimp salad looks goood. I think I am going to have to start eating shrimp salads now.

    And make your plan for the weekend and stick to it. Do you want Allan calling you out? I don't think so. ;)

  2. YUMMY!!

    I need to get some spagetti squash and do that too. I love it with the sauce!


  3. Looks like the squash worked out! Hope the panic subsides and you can enjoy the w/e. Don't sweat the small stuff. Your decision to resume maintenance eating for the weekend is very sound. Hang in there!

  4. You can do it. Because you are strong and worth it. Just keep busy and distracted. That'll keep your mind off food. Go for a walk in a new place. Go window shopping.

    You CAN do it.

  5. Crap! I headed into a bad choices weekend, too! Hope the exercise will make up for it!

  6. I'm starting your blog from the beginning & right now I'm in your first summer of your journey. I'm diabetic too & struggle w/ a lot of things you are/were writing about. I'm starting my journey now & want to blog about it too but just wanted to say I'm a subscriber & am getting many great ideas from you already about calorie counting, food ideas, etc; Looking forward to reading more.

  7. All your food choices look awesome! Shrimp salads are the best.

  8. Your food choices are awesome and look delicious! Keep up with good food choices. And I have a question - what type of dressing do you use with a shrimp salad?
