Butts, Guts, Burgers and Ice Cream

Had a great workout this morning.  I ran 3.5miles in 37minutes and then immediately went to my Butts and Guts Class afterwords (an hour of torture on your legs, butt, arms and abs).  Quickly got home and then......

Went on a date with my little man today.  It was nice having some one on one time with him as it doesn't happen very often.  We spent the afternoon going out to lunch, seeing a play and getting some ice cream (in case you're wondering I used all of my 49 extra ww points at lunch - this was my splurge meal).  I was looking forward to lunch at the good burger place (the last time I had a burger there was August) but it wasn't open until 12pm and the play started at 1pm so that wasn't going to work.  We opted to go to another place that was a step above the golden arches when it comes to burgers but it wasn't 'THE' place to go for burgers.  On the good side it was a chain restaurant so when I got home I could look up the nutrition information online (my jaw dropped and my eyes popped when I read the nutrition info).

My son ate 1/2 a burger with some fries and a milk.  I ate a burger with a side of onion rings and a water (I also sampled some of my sons fries). 


My son requested that I take this picture.
After lunch we went to see the play If You Give A Cat A Cupcake.  It was a great play for the kids and my son loved it.  He asked me if we could go to a play again sometime (yay!).  After the play we went to the  the Dairy Bar for some ice cream.  I had some of my favorite Toasted Almond Amaretto with hot fudge and strawberries of course :-) and my son had a vanilla cone with blue and white sprinkles.

For dinner tonight I wasn't really hungry but felt the urge to have some vegetables and fruit so I ate some acorn squash and an apple with a glass of water (my detox meal).

Here is the nutrition info on the burger I ate - Yikes! - if you are eating something right now stop! - you may feel sick after reading this (I know I do).
Calories 1,190
Fat 68g

Protein 43g

To steel a quote or two from Super Size Me, I was getting some "McSweats" and the feeling of some "McGrease" on my face a few hours after eating.  If you are interested in watching a movie about fast food and what it does to your body Super Size Me is a great movie to watch.  If you think drinking excessive amounts of alcohol is the only way to kill your liver - well guess again.

Weight Watchers vs. Jillian Michael's

It's been a little over 3 years (January 2010) since I started my weight loss journey. I reached my goal weight in May of 2011 (135 lbs). Since then it's been a yoyo and my trend had been going up over the last several months. My current weight is 150 lbs (I was 155 but lost 5lbs over the last few weeks). My goal is to lose the weight I put back on (20 lbs) plus an additional 5 lbs for a weight loss of 25 lbs in total. It's so hard keeping the weight off!! The strategy I'm now doing this time is different. I've decided to follow Jillian Michael's weight loss program instead of continuing on with Weight Watchers. I lost the 80lbs on Weight Watchers and the program served me well. It forced me to look at portion size, calories (with old points system), fiber, carbs, fat and protein (with the new points plus system).  It changed the way I looked at food. Instead of processed foods I focused on eating a variety of whole fruits, vegetables, legumes, grains and l

Sonya 'Lost It'

Well it's now after Christmas and before New Years as I write this post.  I have been on hiatus for a long time on my blog.  I've been spending some of my time thinking about what I was going to write. I have been through some difficult times starting back in late October.  What I am about to write is very personal.   I feel a little bit foolish for sharing this with everyone as most people don't share their 'business' never mind posting it in a blog.  My hope in this post is to not have people feel sorry for me but that readers get an understanding for my situation and also an understanding of others who are going through something similar. Taking a deep breath. I am currently being treated for depression and anxiety and I'm almost finished with an intensive outpatient program at a local hospital (thankfully it's an amazing psychiatric hospital about 40 minutes from my home). For those who are reading this and have either gone through a depressive

Mini Blizzards

Genius This Mini PB cup Blizzard is worth 10 Weight Watchers points plus vs a Small PB cup Blizzard which is worth 16 Weight Watchers points plus. Mini blizzards are great when you want something sweet on occasion but don't want to kill yourself with tons of calories (there are still more calories in a mini blizzard compared to a cup of carrot sticks however).  This PB cup Mini Blizzard was perfect size and hit the spot. Here is the download on 'nutrition' for the Mini PB cup Blizzard ( http://www.calories-nutrition.buddyslim.com/dairy-queen-blizzard-mini/ ): Mini PB Cup Blizzard
