Day 37 – Pasta and Kung Fu Panda

We had pasta for dinner with veggies. Wheat pasta with low-calorie sauce and vegetables is always a good diet meal nowadays. Hopefully, we don’t get too sick of it, but how could you get sick of pasta? Later, we went to see Kung Fu Panda 2 in 3D. It was great! We managed to get away with just sharing some sour patch kids and a huge diet coke.

Day 36: Saturday Splurge Disaster, It happens but we must be accountable!

OMG! Did we go overboard yesterday. Let’s just say a trip to Weinerschnitzel and a lot of booze certainly put us in the positive calorie range!

Day 35: Trader Joe’s Adventure

Since it was Friday before a holiday, and Lisa was up ahead so many calories, we decided it would be fun to splurge on some pizza. We were about to go to Little Cesear’s, but we found out that 1 cheese slice = 250 claories, meaning an entire pie has 2,000 calories! So, we decided to see if we could find a healthier frozen option. Surprisingly, we found a Sicilian Red Pepper Pizza from Trader Joes that only has 840 calories per pizza (280 for 1/3 of the pizza). Brian had 1.5 pizza’s and I had a whole pizza. It was tastier than anything Little Ceasear’s could have concocted. We also found a lot of nice dried fruits as well as lots of baked or popped snacks which can easily be incorporated into our low calorie diet.

Day 34 – Subway Again

Yes, Subway again. Jared’s not messing around; Subway is one of the few places where you can eat out and not ruin your diet. It should be noted that you can’t just go into Subway and order something crazy. You’re best bet is to get a 6 inch sub on WHEAT bread with something plain like turkey, roast beef, or they’re “Subway Club” with ham, turkey, and roast beef is fine too. If you order anything other than wheat bread, you might find yourself in trouble – so be careful! You’re best bet is to use a Nutrition Calculator. If you don’t mind eating your sandwich without cheese, that’s a big place to save on calories too. Although, we don’t really like it without cheese.

Is Hot Sauce Healthy?

After looking over the Google Statistics for this site, I notices that a large number of people end up on this webpage by searching: “is Cholula healthy?” or “is Tapatio healthy?”. So, I’m going to take a moment to answer those people. YES! It’s absolutely healthy! Many hot sauces have 0 calories. In fact, all three of my favorite hot sauces have 0 calories – Cholula, Red Rooster, and Tapatio. Furthermore, spicy foods really boost your metabolism.

The biggest dieting tip I could give besides counting your calories is “Pour hot sauce on everything you eat and drink lots of tea.”

Day 33 – Brian Lost 5 Pounds. Lisa Lost 2 Pounds!!!

Finally did some EA Active workouts. One last night and one this morning. Also, we were both feeling skinny, so we weighed-in on Wii Fit. Good news! We both lost weight! Brian 5 pounds and Lisa 2 pounds.

Did some drinking again, so we just had a snack buffet like the night before. If we keep it up, we’ll weight less than we did when we met each other in about another month or two.

Day 32 – Skipping Dinner, Drinking, and Snacking

Well, not sure if yesterday was “healthy”, but we did both take in a negative number of calories – so that’s probably good. After realizing that we wanted to drink, we decided to skip dinner and just eat snacks. We did this, because we want to eat the snacks when we’re drinking anyway. We figured that  skipping dinner would help us do that and not take in too many calories. It worked, but probably not the best way to diet everyday. Unless, of course, you’re Paris Hilton.

Brian got about 15,000 steps yesterday just cleaning the apartment, so it’s worth noting that cleaning is excellent exercise!

Day 31 – EA Active and Creamy Red Sauce

Finally woke up and managed to do an EA Active workout today. That plus dogwalks put both of us over 2000 steps before 7am! This should make it pretty easy to get 10,000 steps today. Hopefully, after today, Brian will have a negative cumulative calorie intake on the Calorie Scoreboard.

Mixed 4 servings of Classico Light Cream Sauce with 1 serving of Classico Roasted Garlic Sauce. It was really good. For some reason, Classico’s normal line of sauces seems to have less calories than most, more expensive organic and diet sauces.
