Default What's on today's menu? (week of June 19-25)

I thought maybe this would be a more obvious thread title than "journal buddy." In any case, I seem to keep starting these threads on Mondays and then never following through for the whole week--a day or two here and there, but rarely ever the whole week. That will be my goal for this week--record EVERYTHING!

Today's plan:
  • honey bunches of oats cereal w/banana and skim milk
  • reduced-sugar instant oatmeal
  • peanut butter and jelly sandwich
  • yogurt
  • chicken, black beans, veggies, chicken broth, and cream cheese (kind of a chicken chili type crock pot mess)
  • fudgesicle
Comes to about 1233 calories per Fitday.

Jilly, the chili sounds awesome (mmm cream cheese), but maybe you would feel more full/satisfied if you had a little more protein. You really don't have any significant source of protein until dinner (or vegetables). Good work tracking everything

I don't feel hungry, though, until about 4pm, which is when I have my yogurt, and that holds me over till dinner. Typically, I would plan a chicken-and-veggies frozen meal to have for lunch at work, but they weren't on sale anywhere this weekend, and I couldn't in good conscience pay $3 each (and it just never seems to taste as good when I try to make it myself!). As for veggies, haha, that's a long-standing issue for me--I hate them, and as many times/ways as I have tried them, I can't force most of them down without literally gagging, so I've given up the fight. I know I made a good, solid, conscious effort to try them, but it didn't work, and I've survived this long without them, so... But yeah, if I were feeling hungrier during the day, I would certainly add more protein

Well, I ate everything on my plan. Unfortunately, I also added half a dozen (or ten!) of hubby's banana arrowroot biccies throughout the evening, and a few jelly sweeties. Oh, and an accidental Starbuck's grande FF latte. I had every intention of getting a plain black coffee when I walked in, yet somehow a completely different order came out of my mouth when it reached my turn!

Tomorrow, the plan is:
  • Coffee, Optimum Slim cereal, skimmed milk.
  • Banana zuzzed up in skimmed milk.
  • Cottage cheese, 2 small slices whole-wheat bread, raw veggies.
  • Poached egg on whole-wheat noodles, salad.
  • Apple.

Oh, Dishy, must be something in the air, because I went way off plan as well--only worse! I stopped at the evil McDonald's on my way home from work yesterday (not because I was really hungry, mind you, but because I was just CRAVING it) and got entirely too much food for one person and, of course, ate it all. One thing I didn't do, though, is come home and pretend it never happened and still have dinner with Jeff as normal, which I have done numerous times in the past. Instead, he heated up some leftovers, and I skipped dinner (since I wasn't even slightly hungry after all that food anyway). I ended up with a little below 2500 calories for yesterday, so probably no calorie deficit, but still actually not as bad as I would have thought for all the McD's I ate.

On to today:
  • honey bunches of oats w/banana and skim milk
  • oatmeal
  • SmartOnes chicken santa fe meal
  • yogurt
  • trying yesterday's dinner plan today--chicken, beans, veggies, cream cheese crock pot surprise
Should be around 1200 calories when all is said and done. Ooh, and maybe a walk after work--wasn't happening yesterday in those Armagedon thunderstorms we had!

I've done this so often as well. I still have occasions when I convince myself if no one saw me eating (or more likely, drinking wine), it doesn't count.

Good for you for not lying to yourself.

Well, I stuck perfectly to the plan, coming in at around 1250 kcals. I took a brisk 40 minute walk too. I'm dead chuffed with myself!

Tomorrow, the plan is:
  • Optimum Slim cereal, skimmed milk.
  • Starbuck's grande bold roast.
  • Cottage cheese, 2 small slices whole-wheat bread, large salad.
  • Baked salmon, w-w couscous, broccoli.
  • Apple.

Well, I didn't stick perfectly to plan, but I still ended up with fewer than 1800 calories for yesterday, so it's at least in the ballpark. For some reason, I just did NOT want my SmartOnes meal I packed for lunch (I like it, but I just wasn't in the mood), so I got a sandwich from the cafeteria. Normally, I just get ham and cheese, but they were out of ham so I got chicken salad (drenched in regular mayo, of course). So for dinner, I just had a salad of spinach, cabbage (bagged coleslaw mix, actually), a little light cheese, a few croutons, and some onion dressing. All in all, still a yummy and satisfying day

Today may be a bit different, as my lower back started hurting quite a bit yesterday evening, and I find it's still quite painful this morning, so I may run into the office, grab my laptop, and then work from home for the day. I'll be sure to post my food tonight or tomorrow morning.

Nothing to post again about yesterday. I think today will be a little tougher. I am going with my mom and sisters to a company picnic (my sisters). It is a big company so they are likely to have lots of food. I will try to be good, but I have been really good most of the time lately so I will give myself permission to cheat a little today. I also have been really good with the exersise. Last week I started a water aerobics class. Last night I went a little early and swam some laps before class to warm myself up better. I also walked my son to his t-ball game to a park that is about 2 miles away (round trip 4). So I feel ok to have a bit of a cheat day.

1 C Honey Nut Chex cereal ww 2 pt
1/2 C Skim Milk ww 1 pt
1 quart water

2 beef hot dogs ww 12 pt
1 hot dog bun ww 2 pt
3 oz grilled chicken breast ww 3 pt
1/2 C corn ww 1 pt
1/2 C chili ww 2 pt
2 Chocolate ice cream sandwiches ww 8 pt
1 quart water

4 oz Pork ww 6 pt
small potato baked ww 1 pt
1 C broccoli ww 0 pt
1 TBLSP butter ww 3 pt
2 quart water

Total ww 41 pts
Water 4 quarts

Ok so it was a really bad day today. I was doing ok until I tasted the hotdog that my daughter was eating. They were the best ones that I have ever had. I am not just saying that because I haven't had one for a while. This may sound bad but I am a hotdog conosier and boy were they good. I am allowed once a week to go 10 pts over, I have not done that yet until today but I did it today, but I thought I was doing really badly and I only went 10 pts over. I also have a major weekness for chocolate and ice cream. So it kind of went today. I did walk the kids to the park to play and I also went and swam laps before water aerobics so I did kick up the workout. I had a blast today though so right now I think that is what really matters. And I will get back on track tomorrow.

Thanks for the welcome Ali.

Trish

Yesterday was bad:

2 words, turtle sundae

You know what though? I didn't eat any dinner. Yay for me!!

Where is mindy??? I tried her oatmeal peanut butter honey thing just now & OMG YUMMMM!!!!! . I'm not usually a sweets person (ignore that turtle sundae up there ), and will always go for the salty, but this was GOOOD. So mindy, wherever you are, thanks for the idea!!

TODAY:
1 serving pomegranate-cranberry 100% juice

1/2 cup decaf, 1/2 cup light soymilk
1 packet weight smart cinnamon oatmeal w/1 tsp clover honey & 1 tbsp peanut butter (skippy natural)

I've already drank 64 ounces water today, now starting on my gallon.

1 yellow apple
1 beef jerky stick (45 calories)
2 cups skim cowmilk


^^^remind me to never again have beef jerky. It's doing a number on my stomach. Also changed my mind about dinner. Homemade pasta w/mushroom sauce. And a big salad.



Tonight is Girls Nite Out, but I am planning on the Spinach Lasagne & a big salad. Maybe share a piece of tiramisu? I am also (for lunch) planning on a can of tuna packed in olive oil & about a cup, cup and a half of noodles w/Smart Balance Omega Plus instead of my usual 2 cups with butter & parmesan.

Ok I'm new around here, so what was the oatmeal peanut butter honey thing? I write everything down that I eat in my journal at home, tried using fitday for quite awhile, but got frustrated when I didn't have ALL of the information just the calories and it wouldn't let me enter it in my database. So now i just write it down in my diet journal.
