Thumbs up The Plan - Just for Today

I tend to get ahead of myself. While setting goals is a good thing, I often loose sight of this day, this moment and how it impacts my long term goal. I'm trying to stay in this day and thought I would ask you all what your "Plan" is for today.

I had Kashi with skim milk for breakfast.
A piece of whole wheat toast with a half of an avocado on top for snack.
Fat Free tortilla with 4oz steak and some salsa for lunch - carrots on the side.
WaterWaterWaterWaterWaterWater - all the LIVE LONG day.
Afternoon snack will be a Fiber One bar and possibly an apple.

Dinner tonight...well - I think we will have the Stouffers Chicken Alfredo dinner that's been up in the freezer for a month. We started back to school today and I'm whooped.

My plan for today is to stay within my calorie range.

I had a Special K Protein Bar for Breakfast
100 Calorie Snack Pack of Crackers
Lean Cuisine (Salisbury Steak & Mac & Cheese) for lunch
Almonds for Afternoon snack
Dinner = ???

I also will be walking on my treadmill this evening.

Ever since I started making menus to aid me in my shopping, my menu plan is usually right on target, though the only closed options are lunch and dinner. Breakfast, morning tea and afternoon tea are always open because I like a little variety in my diet!

Breakfast today is 2 pieces of cinnamon toast (7 grams of butter on each slice for a little extra yummy) and a glass of OJ (250ml- 1 serve).

Morning tea might be an orange after I get back from the gym or it might be 7 teddy bear crackers and 20 grams of raisins (just about the same amount of calories, +/- 20).

Lunch, since I had leftover baked chicken (that DH hasn't managed to eat yet), is a baked chicken wholewheat tortilla with 25grams of cheddar cheese, lettuce out the wazoo and BBQ sauce.

Afternoon tea will probably be the other option that I didn't eat at morning tea. There's a piece of Christmas cake in the fridge calling my name too... might save that for dessert.

Dinner is 125grams roast/baked chooken with some potatoes, homegrown veg and garden picked salad (out of our garden). I might have a couple of the potato pieces- I roasted potatoes. I found last night that 100 grams of baked chicken isn't a lot. 125 isn't going to be that much more.

Dessert might be the yoghurt in the fridge or it might be the Christmas cake that's been screaming "Mollie-- EAT ME!" for the last few days.

Since I've given up Diet Coke/all coke, I'll be drinking water (well, with berry flavoured B-vitamin sachets; it's the only way I can get through 9-15 glasses a day).

Then I'll be ready and rarin' to go on Wednesday. It's going to be a big run tomorrow and Friday. I hope my iPod holds up; if it gets too jostled, it'll reset or freeze. In media res of a timed run isn't the best time for that to happen. I might wrap it around the heartrate monitor on the treadmill and let it dangle for 1/2 hour.

Andrea,

Thank you for the post. It's true that I tend to get caught up in my goal for the week or the month and then lose track on being present.

Today I had oatmeal for breakfast
snack was a fiber one bar
Lunch was lean cuisine and a salad
snack was a 100 cal pack (chips ahoy-yummy) and an apple
I am struggling because I finished my apple about 30 minutes ago and am still hungry---argh. Might go drink some more water
Dinner will probably be lean cuisine again and maybe some steamed veggies. I hope I don't chuck it all and have kraft mac n cheese. Its so cold and snowing here I feel like making a box of it. Instead I will have the lean cuisine mac n cheese.

Hopefully I stay strong.

Let's see, today...

Breakfast Coffee with 2% milk and a bit of whipped cream (one indulgence) and 2 slice toast dry
Morning snack: 8-10 celery stalks (didn't count them, it was a whole celery heart) with laughing cow cheese (2 wedges = 70 cal)
Lunch: 3/4 cup red rice (about 200 cal), 1 veggie burger pattie (160 cal) and 2 slices bread
Afternoon snack: pink grapefruit and 2 caramel candies (60 cal)
Dinner: ???? (I have 700 calories left...)
Walked 3 miles at lunch and plan to run tonight if I can drum up some energy.
