January 2012 FEW log recap

I'm switching to a weekly recap after this, as I've set some weekly exercise goals. Also, a month's worth of records is irritating to scroll through...

Jan 31st:
peanut butter & strawberry KIND bar
strawberry-blueberry-protein smoothie; part of a small piece of roast chicken

2 pieces of not-worth-it pizza; zucchini

Jan 29th:
apple cinnamon KIND bar; scrambled eggs
3/4 of a bison burger, half serving of fries, 1/4 chicken quesadilla (meal contained what I think of as "incidental veggies", like some tomatoes, lettuce, etc.) Later had another 1/4 of the quesadilla as a snack.

Jan 28th:

KALE and BABY BROCCOLI sauteed together; turkey chili with BUTTERNUT SQUASH
spaghetti bolognese
2 KIND bars and a glass of whole milk
cherries and a clementine
most of a small piece of lemon cake--but was so attentive to texture and flavor that I left the last couple of bites behind, because the point of diminishing returns (pleasure-wise) was reached. SO PLEASED! Thrilled that it didn't feel like a struggle or sacrifice the throw the last bit away.
30 minutes on the treadmill

Jan 22nd:
small pieces of cheese and some cherries
2 eggs and roasted BUTTERNUT SQUASH
smoothie made with almond milk, whey protein powder, blueberries, SPINACH, and a small amount of pomegranate juice
It feels like I strained my back with yesterday's snow shoveling, so I'm skipping the yoga and strength sessions I had planned for today and hoping I can do some light cardio tomorrow plus resume strength training by mid-week.
home scale indicates I have hit below 260, but it's not official until the gym scale says the same. Excited nonetheless!

Jan 21st:
bowl of corn chex with milk

bonus activity: snow shoveling

Jan 20th:
chicken salad on a bed of LAMB'S LETTUCE

spaghetti with bison bolognese
My home scale indicated that I am inching closer to 260. Was today self-sabotage? Cabin fever? Loneliness? A case of not eating enough during the day? I'm not sure.

turkey chili
slice of chicken breast
chocolate chip cookies and milk

Jan 6th:
