Default Accountability/Menu/Planning 19 - 25 January

ey everyone!

Would you like a place to put your daily menu? Is planning helpful to you. Is accountability helpful? Or...maybe just a bit of extra support. If any or all of these sound like they'd fit your plan...please DO join us!

Hi lovelies!

Gosh, another week already. Is it just me or is this year already flying by? It doesn't feel like we're more than halfway through January - surely it should only be around the 10th or so...

Another mad Monday has bit the dust. It's funny - yesterday I watched a fairly spectacular storm hit the city - thunder, lightning, the whole shebang. The part of town that I live in wasn't really affected. Walking in to work this morning and there's mud and all kinds of debris on the street. Apparently the storm caused fairly massive surface flooding through that side of town. Watching the news tonight, the water was around knee deep. The boss looked at me in utter disbelief when I said that there was a bit of rain but nothing major - he lives on that side of town and apparently it was a rough day. Isn't it amazing what difference 7kms makes?

I made it to the gym again today. Didn't have as good a workout today as yesterday - why can't I manage to put together 2 good workouts in a row? Such is life, I suppose. I'm feeling quite tired, so I'm thinking an early night sounds like a good idea. I'll see.

Beverley, hope you had a lovely dinner with your Mum. Still loving the "I will" statements. I might have to try something similar.

MJ, sounds like an awesome way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

Julie, yay for finally feeling better! I was beginning to wonder if you should go to your doctor, since you'd been ill for so many days.

Anyway, todays menu was

B - english muffin, vegemite, cheese slice

S - boiled egg

S - yoghurt

L - chicken salad roll, apricot

D - chicken, cauliflower, broccoli, rice.

I'm still a bit peckish, so I might break out the yoghurt and the berries for dessert.

Have fun, everyone!

I love this thread. I plan on eating the following tomorrow (Tuesday).

B- kashi Go Crunch cereal w/ banana and 1 cup of 2% milk
S- 100 calorie bag of popcorn
L- Tuna with 6 triscuits and an apple and a yogurt
D- Chicken with 1 cup of brown rice and veggie
S- 40 calorie chocolate pop

I am going to do my best to stay on plan and continue to post here. Also I am going to break down and join the health club on the base at the hotel. I was going to go to the free gym but I keep hearing how dirty it can be.

I figure I have been to the hotel one before and I will know what to expect.

Hi chicks - yesterday I had a good on plan day - I am so grateful. I think it's been helping me to make myself sit down at the kitchen table every time I want to put food in my mouth. I have been trying to be more mindful of what I am eating. Recently, I had been eating so, so fast and watching TV, in the car, etc - that I never took the time to taste my food. It nice to actually be tasting the food.

Breakfast - oatmeal, almond butter, cinn., 1/2 banana, milk
lunch - egg white scramble, corn bread, green beans
snack - tangerines
dinner - 12 grain pancake, boca bacon, sf syrup, applesauce
snack - cheese toast

I will eat delicious healthy foods.
I will take the time to really taste my food.
I will eat when I feel some form of hunger. - trying to avoid emotional hunger.
I will eat at the kitchen table and taste my food.
I will drink lots of water.
I will leave something on my plate.
I will move, stretch, and strengthen my body.
I will visualize myself the way I want to look.
I will try to do the best I can

Nicolen - thanks for getting us started!! I am so, so glad you weren't affected badly by the storm. GREAT job getting to the gym. Carry on, friend.

CFmama - good luck with the calorie cycling. Great plan!

Weclome Dolly! I am so glad to hear that you have gym options near you to check out. That's wonderful. So glad you posted.

MJ - I hope your quiet day was great. Did you cuddle those doggies?

Shout out to Schmoodle, Rhonda, seashell, randi, redflame, seashell and anyone else that stops by.

HI ladies!!! I have missed you all. I have been so busy the last few days. DS started karate and I started volunteering with our local humane society. I kept thinking..I gotta check in, I gotta check in. I havent done my 30 DS the last 3 days, (had family in the house and I don't wanna be watched) but I have been walking...and.. running on my lunch break @ work.!!! Yes..me, running. I never would have thought it! Every day I run more and more, alternating it with walking. I'm so proud.

Nicole - Im sorry you are feeling so tired. Get some rest if you can.

Cf mama - I finally gave in and bought some LC wedges. I had always put them off because I only like very mild swiss cheese. WOW are they good! I LOVE the french onion spread on some simply naked pita chips.

Welcome Darlene - I hope you get the gym worked out.

BevJoy - Nice "I" statements. I agree with you about eating at the table. It's so easy to get caught up in mindless eating when you are driving, sitting at the computer, watching tv, etc.. and worse, it can become a nasty habit to break.

Hope everyone has a good OP day!

Hi to Schmoodle, Rhonda, seashell, MJ, redflame, seashell and everyone else not here yet.

Good morning, Friends and Happy MLK Day!

Today is OP day #19 for me and my official weigh-in day. I'm very happy to report that I've lost for the 3rd week in a row. Food planning is going well and it's time to focus on the exercise. I'm looking forward to seeing the stomach "deflate" and the rumpkus get a lighter higher off the floor!

Beverly - so glad that you've found your way back to the basics.
Randi - I love that you're running! One of my goals is to be able to run again.

I'm working a little today. It's technically a holiday for us, but I'm going to seize the quiet time and use it to get ahead.

Have a great on-plan day!

Good Morning! I am home today, I woke up w/ a horrible migraine. Ugh, I hate it when that happens. I must have looked pretty pathetic because dh was going to stay home with me. I insisted that go to work--no sense in watching me sleep! I feel mostly better, it's not totally gone, but almost. I am going to take a shower soon and hopefully that will help too.

nicolen--I know what you mean...there is a small town I drive through on my way to work, it's kind of its own "weather warp". Yea, it was nice to be lazy for a day!

cfmama--Fantastic!!!

DollyR--Good for you for getting to the health club!

Beverlyjoy--Great job!!! Yes, I certainly did! They loved every second of it too!!

Randi--Good for you for walking and running!

Rhonda--CONGRATS on OP day #19 and another loss!!!

seashell--I'm w/ you...too cold to walk outside!


So, it's another day of snuggling w/ the dogs today...they are going to get used to having me home!

I am going to try to do a dvd today, depends on how my head feels.

I didn't weigh in today...I'll have to do that tomorrow.

Have a great OP day everyone!

Hey everyone,

It was another good day - good workout, and the scales are down 3 lbs! My weight's been all over the place since I came back - up as high as 257 and down to 245 - so it's nice that I've got the same number 2 days in a row. I know eating wise I've been fine and I'm certainly getting exercise, so eventually the scales were going to catch up, but it's been a little frustrating waiting.

And then there was work. The boss treated us to morning tea today and yeah. Not a lot of it was healthy food. I limited myself to a ham and egg sandwich and a piece of fudge cake. Could have been better, but it could have been a heck of a lot worse. The reality is, I'm not going to stick completely to plan 100% of the time, so I guess a lot of it is about making the best possible choices I can...

Tammy, 4 under 3! You're going to be a very busy mama tomorrow!

Dolly, fantastic to see you here! Hope the gym goes well for you!

Beverley, I know what you mean about tasting the food! Isn't it incredible how fantastic some food tastes when they're not hidden under all kinds of other flavours?

Randi, go you with the running! That's fantastic!

Rhonda, hope you didn't have to do too much work today and had a chance to enjoy at least a part of your holiday.

Seashell, hope things warm up for you soon!

MJ, migranes are no fun at all. Hope you're feeling better soon!

Redflame, at least you made healthy choices! That's something!

Hi to everyone else!

OK, I'm going to go and organise dinner - it's adventures with tofu tonight. I've never cooked with tofu before, although I've ordered it at restaurants, so this could be ... interesting...

Take care all

Hi chicks - I had another good day on plan - I am grateful. I stayed with my 'list of I wills'. Most important is that I am only eating at the kitchen table with no distractions. This is so hard for me - but, it is making me mindful of what I am actually eating. Tasting the food is nice.

I woke up with some lower back pain - so, I will do gentle stretches, lots of ice and heat.

breakfast - turkey sausage, kashi waffle with pnb
lunch - taco salad
snack - tangerine
dinner - spaghetti squash with parm. cheese, garlic and evoo, garlic bread, grilled chicken
snack - toast and sf cocoa

I will eat delicious healthy foods.
I will take the time to really taste my food.
I will eat when I feel some form of hunger. - trying to avoid emotional hunger.
I will eat at the kitchen table and taste my food.
I will drink lots of water.
I will leave something on my plate.
I will visualize myself the way I want to look.
I will try to do the best I can and accept my day and myself in a positive light.

I'll be back later for personals. - have a GREAT day.

Good morning, Friends.

The long weekend was wonderful, but going back to work is tough! We had snow flurries last night. The girls were anxiously watching through the windows to see if it would stick and they'd get a snow day. I guess they forgot that we live in Georgia.

MJ - How's your head today? Do you get the morning after soreness? I've had migraines since puberty, but they have reduced from 1 every 2-3 weeks, to 1 every 2-3 months since my hysterectomy. That is my silver lining.
Nicolen - tofu is so versatile. What are you using it in? I like it in a stir fry or in a curry sauce.
Beverly - so glad the "kitchen table" rule is working!

My scales have stopped rewarding me with daily or every-other-day losses. This can be somewhat discouraging and this is usually the time when I veer off-plan. I start to think that something is wrong with my body and I can't lose like everyone else. But, this time, I'm determined to push through. I need to start counting calories again and make sure I get on the treadmill each day.

Have a great on-plan day.

Just a quick fly by ya'll. DS is sick and we are heading out to the docs. Scale didn't move for me, but TOM is starting so hopefully I'll get a woosh next week. I REALLY want to make my vday goal.

Mj - hope you feel better

Hope everyone has a great OP day. I'll try and catch back up later.
