Thumbs up Weekly Journal Buddy Thread (Sept. 12 - 18)

Want to take bets on how many people post on last week's thread before they see this one?

I have to mention my new favourite "snack". I've tried Quaker Crispy Minis before and thought they were just fine, but they've come out with some new ones that I absolutely LOVE (they're called Crispy Wholegrain). The stats are great: 100% whole grain rice, corn and barley, 0 trans fat, 0 cholesteral, low fat, low calorie (60 for 8 "cakes") and so tasty. I bought a bag of parmesan and roasted garlic and can't wait to try the other new flavours!

Yesterday was a good day for me, except I was lazy (didn't even walk the dog ~ took her to the park a couple of times and threw the frisbee and let her chase her basketball around until she wore herself out).

Sunday
Points
Morning
4 - Tim Hortons 12 grain bagel
1 - Light vegetable cream cheese
2 - coffee with cream
Mid-morning
1 - watermelon
0 - spring water
Lunch
2 - Crispy Minis with
0 - salsa and
1 - melted fat free cheese

2 - cabbage salad with light dressing
0 - baby carrots

MONDAY -- Family Day

Breakfast:
Kashi Go Lean with blueberries and banana and skim milk
coffee with milk and cocoa

Lunch:
Chicken salad sandwich (very tasty "mediteranean chicken salad" without mayo -- seemed to be a mustard vinagrette with dried tomatoes and roasted peppers)
chocolate chip cookie

Afternoon snack to keep the Beast at bay:

Dinner:
Rest of my Texas Chili from Hard Times Cafe (beef chili with tomatoes, onion, sour cream, over cornbread)
a beer

Snacks throughout the day:

Drinks:

Exercise:
swimming, a long slow walk with Gem (on her tricycle, everything is slow. She's JUST learning to control it on the gentle hills. I'm surprised at how hard it is to walk at half my normal pace. My thighs and calves ache by the time we get home. It's reminiscent of the one time I tried Tai Chi. That slow, deliberate movement really made my muscles scream. *chuckle*)

Hope you're feeling better soon, activeadventurer (even though you're enjoying the rest) Good job on eating healthy food and drinking lots of water while you recover (I know I just want to consume ice cream and milkshakes when I'm sick)

Hey Jilly, I'm dying to find some of these wholegrain crispy minis! I thought we were supposed to all the new stuff down here in the states before you guys, and then tease you relentlessly with it! No fair!

I'll trade you some of my Yankee Kashi for your crispy minis. So, we got a deal or what??

Great to see you back, SAPF. I don't blame you for giving McD's the elbow when you can make something equally--if not more--delish for a lump less money. WTG!

Jilly: No pecking SAPF. Stick with those Quaker snackies you found. I'm going to keep my eye out for them here. I love this thread for sharing good products and ideas. Thanks.

Sorry about your cold, Dee. Hope it clears up quickly. I skipped the exercise yesterday too, but unlike you I have no good reason for it.

Welcome, Anne! Posting in this thread really helps me stay focused, knowing that everyone can see what I'm up to!

How did you do with that Snickers bar, Laura?

It must be good exercise, Synger. I've often fancied giving Tai Chi a whirl (course, I never have. ). It looks very calming which is something I can always do with.

Mon 12/09:

Breakfast: 1 cup Optimum Slim cereal, 30 g raisins, cup 0% milk.
Lunch: 4 oz thinly sliced ham, 10 RF Triscuits, carrots, tomato.
Dinner: 90 g choccie Smarties.*
Snacks: Shake with 7 oz banana, crushed ice, 1 tblsp. peanut butter (I'm in two minds whether this was a good addition or not ), cup 0% milk, cup 2% plain yogurt.
Drinks: 1 litre coffee with 2 tblsp.half & half, 2 litres water, 500 ml green tea, cocoa* made with 1 tblsp. cocoa and 1 cup 0% milk.

Total kcals: 1437 (plus free veggies)

Exercise: None.

*I wish I'd thought about a cup of cocoa before wellying into those Smarties. Let's see: I enjoyed it more than the sweeties and it was only 64 kcals compared with 420!

Today is our 3 year anniversary. I dunno if we're doing anything special though. We'll see....

Tonight I'm trying to figure out where my time went. However, I did manage to enter a profile and this time put my food for the day into the calorie tracking software I use. (Today I did the 12th data using rough numbers while on hold at the office.)

... leaving the house (call it 6am snack?)
- nectarine

Breakfast
- baked 'cup' (egg substitute, egg whites, cheese blend, spices)
- nectarine

Morning snack
- plums, peach

Lunch
- salad (lettuce, cucumber, pepper, tomato) with FF Red Wine dressing
- lean ham
- grapes, orange

Afternoon Snack
- nectarine, plums

Dinner
- BBQ pork souvlaki
- broccoli, cauliflower
- <tsp butter
- salad (lettuce, cucumber, pepper, tomato) with LF Balsamic dressing

Evening Snack
- probably a few more plums (will count them now!)


Total Cals: 1438

Exercise: 45 mins (2.25m) on treadmill, light 15 min swim


(I'm aiming between 1400 and 1600 calories daily, and minimum 30 mins on the treadmill @3mph 5 days a week)

I'm going to grab those plums and try and read a few more threads before I hit the sheets.

Anne, welcome!! It's good to have more folks here. I get such inspiration seeing what others choose to eat, both the good and bad. I look forward to getting to know you better through your posts.

Activeadventurer, that sweet potato/apple thing sounds REALLY good, and perfect for warmer fall fare. I'll have to find that recipe.

TUESDAY

Breakfast:
walnuts (pre-commute)
cottage cheese
banana

Lunch:
turkey
dressing w/gravy
carrots
greens (only ate three forkfuls rather than the half cup serving - they were bitter today)

Afternoon snack to keep the Beast at bay: (had to work late at the office, so was VERY glad to have my emergency snacks)
protein bar
orange
handful of nut/seed/raisin mix

Dinner:
salmon patty
broccoli "cream" soup (little potato, fresh broccoli, nuked until soft, pureed with a dollop of lowfat cream cheese -- serious comfort in a cup)

Snacks throughout the day:

Drinks:
water
coffee w/cream
diet soda

Calories:
about 1700

Exercise:
walking and stairs
