View Full Version : Planning for Wednesday, Dec. 20

I stuck to my plan yesterday perfectly (although I exchanged my planned brown rice at dinner for some whole-wheat bread and made little chicken sandwiches). I resisted the big tray of fresh bakery cookies available in the break room at work as well as the free sandwiches--'tis the season to be surrounded by food, right? :dizzy:

Today is my first holiday party of the season. It's just my group at work (9 of us, I think), and we are going out to lunch at a restaurant. I'm planning on ordering something I don't think I'll particularly like so I can just have a few bites and then bring the rest home to Jeff for dinner (then I don't have to cook dinner, either...double bonus ;) ).

I already did my 30 minutes of exercise this morning, so here's a guess at my food for the day:

potato sausage soup stuff
chicken tenders and pineapple w/teriyaki sauce
lunch out: estimated 1 cup of pasta w/cheese and meat sauce in my Fitday just as a placeholder--will update when I know what I've had :^:
chicken sandwiches - chicken tenders, bacon, Swiss, and soy mayo on whle-grain bread

whew, survived holiday party #1! I ordered a ziti dish with mushrooms (which I hate) and sausage, and I think I literally only ate less than 10 individual noodles. I had my potato/sausage soup stuff before we left, and I drank a bunch of diet coke while i was there, and that carbonation kept me feeling full. It was an Italian restaurant, and I didn't even have any bread (which they served with a bruschetta that everyone else was raving about, but I didn't touch it). And I passed on the free desserts. If you'd asked me a couple months ago if I could ever have resisted anything like that, I would have laughed in your face, but now, it really wasn't that difficult. I pushed a bunch of the ziti to the side of the dish so it looked like I had eaten quite a bit so no one else would feel awkward or anything. All in all, a GREAT party to remember when I'm trying to resist temptation at the rest of the parties this season!

Good for YOU Jill! I had the same success at last week's office luncheon at a wonderful (and very pricey) Greek restaurant.

BTW, I absolutely LOVE this Kashi brand you ladies turned me onto. I get the oatmeal Kashi, and sometimes add half a banana, and boy does it fill you up for about 200 calories. I thought I couldn't get by throughout the day without my whole grain bagel w/ butter (at about 400 calories w/ the butter) in the morning, but I was wrong.. Glad you all got me eating a better breakfast; it does make a difference with all that fiber and protein (7 grams fiber/9 protein in the Kashi oatmeal) yet I'm consuming about 1/2 the calories.

Today went well, just finished up some baking - I nibbled a bit while I was making but nothing too major :)

All and all my day ended up around 1600. Going to jump on my bike for half an hour and then enjoy a bath :)
