Well, yesterday was a bust! I work part-time for a company that performs "secret shopper" evaluations--I edit the reports before they go to the clients. Well, I signed up to do one of the evaluations at a diner for free breakfast Eggs and chicken sausage? Oh no, that would have been far too good--I went all out and and got the eggs benedict and home fries. With water? Well, yes, but also with a hot chocolate with whipped cream That plus the leftover pepperoni pizza for lunch and dinner plus smoothies at night stacked me up to about 2600 calories for Sunday

But now it's Monday, so c'est la vie! Here's today's anticipated menu:
  • weight control instant oatmeal
  • yogurt
  • leftover stir-fry (chicken, broccoli, and corn w/teriyki sauce--no rice)
  • Smartfood popcorn
  • turkey ham and instant flavored mashed potatoes
Total: about 1340 calories

Well, mixing up your kcals keeps your body guessing, Jillybean. Seems to be working well for you right now.

Hi, Sandi!

I didn't stick within my kcal limit yesterday either. I opened a bottle of wine and grazed on Triscuits (I always think of SAPF when I'm having a Triscuit moment. Where are you, dear?) until I went to bed. Totting it all up, it could've been much worse. I really did count every Triscuit which is more than I would've done in the past.

Sun 13/11:

Breakfast: 1 cup Optimum Slim cereal, 1 oz seedless raisins, cup 0% milk; 500 ml coffee, 500ml water.
Lunch: 1 cups home-made chicken & veggie soup; 1l water.
Not sure what to call it: 30 RF Triscuits, 12 LC party cubes, Marmite, veggie sticks; 500 ml water.
Extra Drinks: 591 ml bottle water, bottle Zinfzndel.

Total kcals: 1796 (plus free veggies)

Exercise: 2.47 mile walk, 20 minutes strength training.

I had my 'free' day on saturday but did really well. I actually went to Red Lobster and got Crab legs and a baked potato with butter on the side and no sour cream (don't like it anyway!)
I did have a ceasar salad and an appetizer but I know I was still under my points +35

Yesterday I had a bowl of cereal, a chicken finger, a ww meal for lunch and then small portions each of ham and mashed potatoes and a whole bunch of green beans.

Today :
Yogurt
banana
ham and cheese on whole wheat
carrotts

I'm gonna be hungry I left my oatmeal at home


Good news- the dog got in my sons bedroom and ate ALL of his candy. I am free !!!

It was one of those days. The cat was sick, I was supposed to go on a business trip, it got postponed a day, I had to reschedule everything, I dealt with the cat and vets, did a full day's work, picked up the cat at last, came home, coddled the sick kitty, arranged a pet sitter, cleaned the kitchen, cooked dinner, ate, did laundry for the trip, AND managed to get in 30 minutes of exercise. I feel like I deserve a medal, I swear! Normally I wouldn't have exercised and taken an 'off day', but with the business trip, I might miss 3 days in a row of exercise.

Anyway. Bed soon, have to get up in 7 hours. Today was a day of total measuring and weighing (except for the veggies at dinner), to remind me of portion sizes, too.

Breakfast
1 cup raisin bran
1/2 cup 2% milk
2 Morningstar Farm breakfast patties

Snack
Single serving of trail mix

Lunch
Healthy Choice meal, Baja Chicken

Snack
2 oz fat free turkey

Dinner
Chicken and veggie stir fry, done up in 1T olive oil (gasp!) and 2T stir fry mix
Served over leftover wild grain rice, done up with a dash of LF butter in the cooking

Snack
1.5 cup diced watermelon

Exercise: 30 minutes exercise bike
What I Watched: Last part of a Survivor: Marquesas episode

Total calories: 1559

Wow, yesterday was a bust for me too. Too little sleep, too much stress, and stuck in the hotel with room service that's not healthy at all. I tried ordering a chicken sandwich, and fries from a craving. I should've asked, the chicken sandwich was fried. And I was hungry and emotional and stressed and working after waking up at 5 am for a plane flight and it's just ugh.

Breakfast
Morningstar soy breakfast patty
Lowfat yogurt

Snack
About 1.15 ounces of cashes

Lunch
Chicken in some sort of sauce that I shook off
Small scoop of ziti (about 6 noodles)
Salad, with a drizzle of some sort of Italian dressing

(Here's where it all went downhill....)

Snack
3 squares of brownie (about 2" by 2" and gooey with chocolate chips and hopefully not more than 250 calories each but you never know)

Dinner
3/4ths of a fried chicken breast
A humongous serving of fries (half a pound?)

Exercise: None, except for stressing
Calories: I'm going to guess around 2900

Ended up having pineapple after dinner last night and another Special K bar, so yesterday's total came to about 1650-1700 calories.

I have been feeling SO hungry yesterday and so far today. I haven't changed my diet much, I haven't been exercising more, and it's not TOM, so why the hunger??? It's not even 9:30am, and I have already had:
  • can of coke zero
  • oatmeal
  • Special K bar
  • 100-calorie pack of Oreo crisps
And I feel like I could still go for a huge bacon cheeseburger and fries! Normally, I would say hey, I'm hungry for a reason, so I should eat something (sensible, of course--no cheesecake ). However, my weight is up by about 1.5 pounds, so I am afraid to just keep eating. All I have left for the rest of the day here at the office is a container of strawberries and peaches since I didn't plan on eating everything else so early. Therefore, I may end up having to eat lunch in the cafeteria And then who knows what or dinner. It's not just cravings (who craves oatmeal?) because I make sure to wait a while and see if I am still feeling hungry. I've been doing so well for the past few weeks, too

2 - 1 tbsp. peanut butter
1 - Carnation Light hot chocolate
