Happy Valentine’s Day!  Welcome to the 7th week of Biggest C&R Loser 2013! This year we’ll be keeping all of the results and placings secret until the end of the contest. We’ll also be pooling our cash to award the 2013 winner the largest prize we’ve ever awarded … a whopping $40!  This week’s theme is always a Biggest C&R Loser favorite!  It’s time for: “What’s Inside Your Fridge?” Let’s see what our contestants are hiding behind the refrigerator door!  This week each of our contestants will show you a photo of their fridge and describe the contents. Here we go!

My fridge at home looks a lot like the one in this photo. Now that I’m leeching off my parents for practice teaching, they only have healthy things in the fridge. It should be good for me as long as I don’t splurge on my own! Which I won’t, because I’m broke.

Ah yes, this week is the fridge picture. And here we go! Top shelf: OJ, milk, butter, Ginger ale; next shelf: eggs, carrots, celery, salsa; next shelf: Salad stuff, and meat (to make chili tonight); next shelf: Diet Coke, baking soda, two bottles of wine, one bottle of beer; In the lower drawer is an onion, for the chili; The door shelves contain condiments, then yogurt, the applesauce. Healthy, I know! But now I’m really looking forward to the chili tonight!

So. Our fridges. I tried to have it neater this time so Adam wouldn’t freak out. I only got groceries on Sunday so I’m surprised it’s not fuller (more full?). My freezer is stocked up and yes, that is two containers of Hagen Daas. But come one, it was $3 off, and it’s next to the box of Weight Watchers egg mcmuffins so I think that has a moderating effect on the ice-cream calories. I tend to fill up the freezer, then don’t buy anything until it empties out. Just restocked. Our top shelf is usually lunch stuff, pudding, juice, etc. There are some leftovers in there this time, I usually have an average number of fruits and veggies in the bottom and we have lots of juice and soda in the door along with various bottles of sauce, relish, whipped cream in a can, marinade, salad dressing, etc. Oh and that little drawer inside is chock full of cheese. (Sorry Michelle) So an average fridge? We take our lunch to work/school every day and we cook dinner at home 13 out of 14 days, so we usually have a lot of staples on hand to make it fast and easy.

Atop the fridge are several boxes of cereal, bottles of dishwasher detergent, and vitamins. Freezer is packed, mostly with frozen fruit, ice cube trays, and coffee. The main section of the fridge has waaaay too much stuff in it, with the bottom shelf dominated by a pot of broccoli-bean-and-lemon pasta, and various other containers of leftovers. Good luck finding what you’re looking for in there!

In the freezer I have some frozen veggies and pitas. On the fridge door I have some condiments, seltzer, rice milk, canned fruit and water. In the fridge I have some Fresca, veggies, fake cheese, leftover taco “meat”, apples, hummus, peanut butter, tofu and tempeh. YUM! Now I want to go eat it all.

We always have the following in the fridge: juice, salad dressings, condiments, fruits, veggies, Harry’s beer and my zinfandel (Beringer’s!), dill pickles (Adam’s favorite) and salsa. There are usually ingredients for a meal or leftovers from my cooking, but I didn’t cook this week (lazy!), so the fridge is a little bare. There are some leftover fajitas from the Mexican restaurant where we had dinner the other night. And the yogurt (yuck!) is Harry’s, he’s been making smoothies.

In the freezer: 1st drawer: frozen veggies. 2nd drawer: popsicles (Harry had a cold/sore throat), ice cream and vodka. I find when I freeze Thin Mints, the box will last longer than a day. That hummus is soooo garlicky – when Harry eats it, the house reeks of garlic. That’s why it was banished to the freezer (until I’m out of town or die). 3rd drawer: Lots of leftovers (in the back), some Lonely Man dinners and a big old bag of strawberries for Harry’s smoothies.

What’s in my fridge? Not a lot at all as you can see. There are a lot of condiments though…I’m on the all condiment diet you see. Lots of flavor…very little health.

Now that I look at this picture I realize how crammed, small, messy and badly-lit this fridge is. Maybe I should be on Food Hoarders, if there is a show like that. It does have good things in it. Lots of veggies and fruits, some protein and leftovers. Yummmmm!

Biggest C&R Loser 2013

Welcome to the third week of Biggest C&R Loser 2013! This year we’ll be keeping all of the results and placings secret until the end of the contest. We’ll also be pooling our cash to award the 2013 winner the largest prize we’ve ever awarded … a whopping $40!  This week’s theme is “DIET” — the contestants were asked: How has your daily diet changed?  What are you eating now that you didn’t eat before?  What have you given up? Here’s what they said:


Adam

I’ve had a stressful couple weeks and my diet has suffered.  Cookies are delicious! They’re all I want to eat! Nom Nom Nom!  I promise to be better next week.

My diet hasn’t really changed that much. Probably because I have not started dieting yet. Well, I have cut back on the amount I’m eating. I’ll be cutting way down on junk food (soon). These are some of the foods I intend to miss the most.
*Consumed since starting this round of BC&RL.

I am slowly adding veggies and salads to my routine. After the stress of the wedding, I got back into some bad habits like eating nothing but cheese and bread….those days are gone. So far….I am starving.


Mr. Sombrero

My diet hasn’t changed much, except in quantity. I try to avoid sugary and late night snacks. But it’s soooooo haaaaard. I drink more hot teas and have added a daily dose of (Adam’s favorite) an apple cider vinegar drink. It’s a spoonful of vinegar diluted in a glass of water, sweetened with agave nectar or honey. It’s suppose to aid in the weight-loss fight. Bottoms up!


Nathan

banana

I’ve mainly been doing two things. 1) making sure I eat breakfast and that my breakfast is a banana. 2) making sure that I don’t eat at any restaurants/get any take out. It’s been going pretty well, though this week’s been a little shaky.


Polt

Mama xams candy

This week, we talk of out diet. Well, the biggest change is, since the holidays are over, I’m no longer eating Mama Polt’s Homemade cookies. And candy. And peanut brittle. And pies. And big meals with all the trimmings. I’m back to what I was eating before the holidays: salads and meat and cheese and little to no carbs. Yum….I guess….

My “diet” consists of regularly telling myself not to stuff so damn much food down my gullet. No more than 15 peas and 25 grains of rice per meal. (ha! right) Not sure it’s working. But my basic premise is just cut down on the amount of food, which in theory equals fewer calories, which should equal weight loss. I’ve not been tracking very well, but am just trying to be more conscious of what I eat and how much.

These past couple weeks have been incredibly stressful at work (start of a new semester), so my diet lately has been heavy on comfort and convenient food, not so heavy on healthy choices. (The silver lining in that: steak and scalloped potatoes. Mmmmm.) And I did everyone else in the house a favor by taking care of all the leftover candy canes from the holiday. (Seriously, it *was* a favor. By the time I thought to buy any it was Dec 23rd, and all I could find were ones from some off-brand candy company, and their flavor was just a tad off. More spearmint than peppermint.) I swear I’ll start my diet for realz really really soon now. (And in spite of all this horrible eating, I managed to lose a bit more than a pound this past week. Must be the stress.)
