Default Weekly Journal Buddy Thread (July 17-23_

I refuse to let this one by the wayside, especially now that I have a new fridge filled w/healthy things.

For our new members that don't know, this thread is where we share what we ate for the day & also log our exercise & water, if we choose to. You can do this any way you want, ie whatever is most helpful to you. Sarah, for instance, likes to plan out her day ahead of time & then edit her message to show what was eaten or what she just didn't feel hungry for. I like to write it down as I eat it, to keep track since certain things are easy to forget, especially if I WANT to forget them.

It's also a good thread to get recipe or food ideas from, as well as to ask the other members, "What am I doing wrong? What am I doing right?"--everyone is always glad to help.

You can do one message every day, or several days in one message. That's up to you. Welcome & please feel free to join in!


today

1 serving sugarfree raspberry jello
16 ounces skim milk

1 MorningStarFarms cheddar burger
1/2 cup spinach/radicchio mix
small amount sliced fresh mushrooms
small amount light done right house italian
2 pluots
6 deli style rye triscuits

1 liter water

1 package chicken ramen

Yup, let's keep this going.

Today I had the following:

1 ultimate meal shake (1 banana, 1/2 cup unsweetened soymilk, ~1/4 cup of ultimate meal powder)
1/2 cup 1% cottage cheese with 2 strawberries
2 cups of shrimp, veggie stirfry mixed with rice (leftovers from Mongolian BBQ)
1 apple with 1/2 tbsp peanut butter

Dinner will be: 4-5 oz grilled chicken with grilled veggies and 1/2 cup rice
After dinner Snack: TBD - depends if I go to the gym or not, may be a smaller ultimate meal shake or protein shake.

I am all about the details, so I love this idea. Here's my day:

Breakfast:

1 C. Kashi Go Lean Crunch
1/4 C. dried blueberries
3/4 C. 2% organic milk

2 8 oz. mugs tea w/a tiny bit of organic half & half

Lunch:

1/2 C. egg beaters
1 oz. light Velveeta
1 low-carb tortilla (whole wheat, 50 calories)
13 baby carrots
1 Tbsp hummus

Dinner:

2 C. romaine lettuce, shredded
1/2 C. grape tomatoes
1 serving tuna (water packed) w/1 Tbsp light mayo and 1/2 tsp. sweet relish

Snacks:

1 light ice cream sandwich
1 100-calorie pack of cookies
1 100-calorie pack of Wheat Thins
Watermelon

Exercise:

45 minutes swimming laps
30 minutes Pilates

80 oz. water so far, but it's Florida and it's summer so I'm drinking water pretty much constantly.

Looking at the list of snacks, I see I still have some work to do cutting back on the processed foods. It seems like I eat so much, but I'm still having trouble keeping my calories up. Some days I can eat 1300 and be full, but days like today when I work out a lot I can eat 1600 easily (I'm trying to keep it at around 1500 for now). I need to add more cooked whole grains into my diet but cooking for myself is my biggest failing. I hate doing it when I can just make a salad instead.

Breakfast: Oatmeal, wheat germ, raisins, 8 oz cup green tea w/honey

Lunch: chicken and wild rice soup, slice whole grain breat w/pat of butter

Dinner: Chicken and Brown rice burrito (2), salsa, broccoli (2 servings)

Snack: Triscuit crackers (6), wedge laughing cow cheese, granola bar

Total calories: 1352

With all of these whole grains I am having a hard time eating enough. I feel full all of the time, I guess that is better than feeling hungry. I am trying to stay between 1200 and 1550 calories a day so I did make it, but...

For workout did 60 mins water aerobics, 20 mins lap swimming and 30 mins of strength training.

Did one gallon of water.

  • Apple.

Food wagon will be here in an hour.

The girls are ordering Chinese takeout.

I have more willpower than that.

Food wagon purchase will be skim milk only.

planned for today:
english muffin & fruit & cheese for breakfast
salad & cheddar burger (veggie) & triscuits for lunch
ramen noodle soup with frozen veggies mixed in for dinner.

Actually eaten today:
1 green apple
1 red pear
2 sticks reduced fat string cheese
1 light whole grain english muffin
2 tsp's smart balance spread
2 cups skim milk

1 MorningStar Farms cheddar burger
1 cup spinach radicchio mix
1/4 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1 serving light done right house italian dressing
6 rye triscuits (so much more flavor than the low sodium & only 100 more mg of sodium)
1 packet sugar free drink mix (strawberry lemonade) calorie free too!

1 serving sugarfree orange jello
2 servings baby carrots (i have them here in a bowl to dip from throughout the afternoon.
1 serving Breton multigrain crackers

1 lean cuisine macaroni & cheese meal

no more food last night.



I must say having that oatmeal last night totally helped. Not only did I not make a bad choice out of sheer hunger, I didn't even feel hungry for dinner!

planned dinner (if i can make it that long)
1 bag baby spinach/radicchio mix, sauteed
mushrooms, sauteed with ^^
1 package chicken ramen, prolly will only use half the packet.

If I can't make it that long, it's going to be the oatmeal again. (or not)

SAPF - I don't have a food wagon but I do have to stand by the vending machines as I heat up my lunch. They have no power over me though. That food wagon has no right to have power over you either!

Dishy - Thanks

Last night, I ate a little more than planned. I had an apple with 1/2 tbsp pb then I had 1/4 cup of mixed nuts, raisins and kashi go lean.

Dinner was 4 oz fish, brussel sprouts and 1/2 cup rice with a piece of rye bread. Also had a salad with lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, red bell peppers, carrots & lighten up salad dressing.

Dessert was 1/2 kiwi. Snack was a Kashi TLC bar.

Today is:

Breakfast - 1 ultimate meal shake (ultimate meal powder, 1/4 cup unsweetened soy milk, 2 strawberries, 1/2 banana)

Snack - 1/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt, 1/4 cup 1% cottage cheese, 1/3 kiwi

Lunch - 4 oz grilled chicken breast, 1/2 cup rice, brussel sprouts. I also have a salad but may hold off until after lunch. Salad has lettuce, tomatoes, red bell peppers and cucumbers.

Snack - Mixed veggies (cucucmbers, carrots, red bell peppers) and laughing cow cheese wedge.

Dinner - 4 oz fish, broccoli, salad

Snack - Not sure, I don't want to eat kashi tlc bars every night.

P.S. Where is jilly?!

Think of all that nasty MSG and sodium you don't need, SAPF. Stay strong.
Looks like a great day of menus planned there, nelie. I've never tried those TLC bars. Are they sweet or savoury?

Last night I added another apple, cup 1% cottage cheese, and a couple of tablespoons half & half in a coffee.


Today's plan:
  • Fruit shake (banana, blueberries, plain yogurt, skimmed milk, tofu).
  • Cottage cheese and Marmite on Ryvitas, salad.
  • Carrots and sugar snaps with hummus.
  • Baked salmon, broccoli, peas, w-w couscous.
  • Apple, strawberries.

I forgot about this thread- I never really wrote in it but always liked to follow it and see how people were doing and what they're eating... Nelie, glad to see you at it again!

Today unfortunately I didn't wake up until almost 11 (yay unemployment) and lay in bed talking on the phone for an hour and a half, only getting up to get:

Peanut butter and jam on a hamburger roll
one piece of mozzerella

HA, fabulous eating habits I'm having.

But for the rest of the day this is what I have planned:

snack- designer whey shake
dinner- probably one chicken breast and veggies

exercise: one hour pilates class, 30-45 minutes cardio (incline treadmill/elliptical)

Welcome, Dana!

Heh, already I've veered away from the plan, but at least it was with something healthy. I had wheat bran, raisins, and skimmed milk for brekkie, so that'll change the rest of my day. Maybe I'll just swap it out with the cottage cheese meal. We'll see....

Dana, welcome I found it helps to track my food and to help keep me honest.

Dishy, the TLC Kashi bars (I buy from Costco) are a little sweet but mostly crunchy. I originally bought them for hiking but they found their way into the snack area too for me

snack - apple and 1/2 tbsp peanut butter
dinner - salmon/cucumber/bell pepper salad (recipe as posted in Super Foods thread), 1/2 cup whole wheat penne pasta, ~3 tbsp pasta sauce, 1 piece of "The Baker" whole wheat flax bread (~50 calories and dense), zucchini and a sald which consisted of lettuce, tomatoes, bell peppers, green onions, cucumbers and carrots with 1 tbsp newman's own lighen up salad dressing.

I went to the gym and did 23 minutes on the elliptical and I didn't have an after dinner snack.

Today is:

Breakfast - 1 ultimate meal shake (ultimate meal powder, 1/2 kiwi, 1/2 banana, 1/4 cup unsweetened soy milk)

Snack - 1/4 cup 1% cottage cheese, 1/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt, 2 strawberries

Lunch - 4 oz grilled chicken breast, 1/2 cup whole wheat pasta, 2 tbsp pasta sauce, zucchini plus salad with lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, green onions, cucumbers and red bell peppers with 1 tbsp salad dressing.

Snack - mixed veggies (cucumbers, carrots, bell peppers) with <1/4 cup hummus

Snack - salmon/cucumber/bell pepper salad

Dinner - 1/2 cup whole wheat pasta, ~3 tbsp pasta sauce, 1 piece of "The Baker" whole wheat flax bread, 1/2 cup salmon/cucumber/bell pepper salad, broccoli plus a side salad
