Cardboard Box Diet {week 2}

If you've never heard of the Cardboard Diet (or #cbdiet), go here to get all the details!

Y'all, week two of the Cardboard Diet didn't treat me very well. Once I was over that nasty little virus I had last week, and was actually able to eat food again, I gained 2 pounds back. But! At least that was it, no more than the 2 pounds, which I count as a win!
  • Weigh-In: After I gained those pesky two pounds back, I maintained my weight from Friday through Monday, which was pretty frustrating, but seeing as how I was.... emotional, bloated, and in "EAT ALL THE SWEET THINGS" mode... I'm claiming that as a win too. I haven't weighed in since Monday because we've been at my mom's and she doesn't have a scale. I'm calling this vacation.
  • Exercise Completed: We hit the pool and swam on Friday, then it rained all weekend, so we were stuck in the house, but we dusted off the old Wii and got busy. Between Wii tennis and bowling, I burned a whole lotta calories. FYI: 55 minutes of Wii tennis burns 412 calories. 75 minutes burns 562. Two days of Wii tennis makes you feel like you've been hit by a Mack truck. It's definitely a workout.
  • Splurge/Guilty Pleasure: Um, yeah, I had a mini Dairy Queen Oreo Cheesequake blizzard on Tuesday. It was worth every calorie. All 380 of them. Then I had a chopped beef sandwich yesterday. Like I said, I'm on vacation. I'm terrified of stepping on the scale once I get back home.
  • Success Story: Does it count that I've tried to stay under my calorie intake each day I've been at my mom's? Oh, and I passed up a seriously delicious looking chili dog for lunch. That's a win, right?
  • Recipes: The first night we were here my mom made Skillet Steak and Onions from Skinnytaste. Holy cannoli, it was good! Plus, it was only 95 calories for a 1/2 cup serving. Make this, pronto! Also, on Sunday I wanted a quick lunch, and didn't feel like cooking much, so I warmed up some canned chicken and a can of fat free refried beans, mixed it up with some salsa and lettuce, and chowed down. Extremely good and 220 per bowl. Confession: I ate two bowls!
  • Photos
Breakfast: Three egg whites, salsa, and a kiwi.

One hour of Wii tennis will make you extremely red faced.

B even got in on the Wii action. He's the baseball champ.

My second week wasn't as good as my first week, but I'm going home today, so I plan on getting back into my routine and kicking some serious tail. I'm definitely more motivated than I ever have been before, and I feel like this time, I'm going to be successful. Hopefully I don't eat my foods and give into the ice cream craving I'm having right now!

Have a good Thursday, m'dears! And if you're joining us on the #cbdiet, or if you're on MyFitnessPal, let me know!! I'd love to follow along!

Wii tennis is hard! I don't have a Wii anymore, but I also remember the boxing being killer, ack! After being sick, you've gotta ease back into this, so don't be so hard on yourself :)

hey girl, kuddos to breaking out the wii and getting some cardio in!!

Maintaining is AWESOME. I count it a win! So much better than gaining, right?!

Stephany said...

I've only played on a Wii once and I remember there was a canoe game? Or something. HOLY CRAP DOES IT WORK OUT YOUR CORE. My abs were KILLING me for days on end after I did that for just 20 minutes! I remember the tennis being a good one, too. You could probably get a full-body workout from the Wii! Ha.

Good job this week! That Blizzard sounds soooo yummy!

You seriously can get a workout with almost any of the Wii sports games. I break a sweat everytime I do Just Dance with my kids.

I've always wanted to work out on the wii! Hubs and I will have to sneak up to the church and use the one up there! ;)

I think you did great - vacations are SO hard for me. I like to eat - that is the best part of the vacation for me. I always look forward to eating at new restaurants and stuff - so the fact that you were on vacation and at least made a conscious effort is awesome!

I'm THE CHAMP at Wii bowling!!!

It can be really hard to stick to a lifestyle change when you're out of your element. Add in being sick, and I think you should count each and every success, no matter how small it seems! My roommate has a Wii (and Wii Fit I think) but I don't think it has been played once in the 7 months I've lived here. Maybe I'll have to try it, ha!

I am dying to try that skillet steak recipe!

And I had NO idea Wii Tennis could burn so many calories!
