The last two weeks have been bad, bad, bad! :devil: I think I gained 5 lbs (although I'm hoping some of that is water). Oh well, today I will be back on plan.

Here's today's menu:
B - Go Lean cereal with soy milk.
S - coffee with splenda and milk, maybe some fruit
L - pita with turkey, raspberry chipotle sauce, and light chevre; tomato, cucumber, and blackberry salad with balsamic vinegar
S - blueberry fiber cake with NF cream cheese
S - NF yogurt with berries, maybe some wheat germ
D - Coq Au Vin; green salad
S - low cal pudding; decaf tea with milk and sweetener; mini chocolate meringue

exercise: With trainer. I'm still recovering from a chest cold and several days of no exercise, so today is going to be tough.

I ended up a little low on calories yesterday since I never got my pbj in, so I just had the bread with dinner and made little chicken sandwiches. I also got in a 60-minute walk after work for a total of 90 minutes of exercise yesterday.

Today started off with 30 minutes of exercise and this for the plan:

Healthy Choice frozen cheese pizza
pbj sandwich (I swear I will actually eat it one of these days!)
leftover chicken on bread (little sandwiches like last night)That comes to something like 1350 calories (wow, I'm too tired to even just open another browser window to check my Fitday :p ).

I did really bad yesterday when I got home. Thank god I finished off all of the Ferrer Rochers. I already had a bad breakfast, so I will have to work extra hard at the gym today!

B - don't want to repeat it

s - turkey wrap

l - late lunch - mashed potatoes, veggies, chicken breast

s - banana or apple

d - black bean chili, rice, salad, contemplating a chorizo ( I have to cook it before it goes bad)

e - an hour at the gym, probably all cardio

Ok so yesterday I got this book from the lib on low GI foods and diet. It seems really feasible. They have a list of low and high GI foods, nothing is restricted. The only rule is to eat the high GI foods in moderation. I'm so excited because most of it is what I eat anyway (low stuff)! Yay!

Yesterday, ate my stirfried veggies and couscous but also managed to get these fried indian snacks in (about 200 cals), a sandwich with boca spicy chicken patty (340 cals), an apple and something else I can't remember. Hm. But I tallied up my total calories for yesterday and it came out to 1370 or something, so not bad! AND I did some strength training yesterday (upper body) so I'm really excited.

B - 1 cup skim milk
1 banana

S - 1/2 cup Craisins (really good!)

L - 1/4 cup brown rice + roasted bell peppers and potatoes
1 8 oz container of plain ff yogie

S - hmmm....I might not have time for a snack as I'm going food shopping

D - stirfried veggies and couscous.

Exercise: 4 miles walking today. Will do leg work tonight.

I went overboard yesterday on 2003 calories. I almost ALWAYS go over my plan..though I can see by what I ate yesterday that most of the meals were just too high in calories. It appears I need to eat very frequently to keep the hunger at bay, so I must remember to eat lower calorie meals (my snacks are already pretty low in calories and healthy..though sometimes I eat too many). Just cutting say 100 calories by eating chicken rather than meat, or cereal instead of my favorite bagel w/ butter should do it.

Kashi Go Lean Crunch w/ FF milk (286 cal)
Cosi Hummus w/ Veggie Sandwich (432 cal)
Protein Hot Cocoa (80)
Small Steak w/ 1/2 cup rice & 1/2 can green beans w/ 1 pat butter (360)
Crisp n Crunch Peanut Protein Bar (150)
Grilled Pepper Jack Cheese on WW Bread (190)
Protein Hot Cocoa (80)

Total comes to about 1450 calories.

01-03-2007, 11:24 AM
B: Oatmeal
L: Chili & spinach salad
D: Greek Pizza & salad
S: Almonds, cheese, cherry tomatoes
E: Yoga

Hey guys,

I got in kind of late last night, so only had time for a quick trip to the grocery store. I think the cafeteria at work is still closed this week and I didn't have time to pack a better lunch, will make some soup tonight hopefully!

B - 2 organic whole grain waffles, 1 with natural peanut butter, 1 with strawberry rhubarb jelly

S - 5 oz fresh blueberries

L - Kashi frozen meal - I think it's penne putenesca. Looked pretty good, 300 calories, 6 grams of fat.

S - tangelo

S - tall non fat sugar free latte

S - carrot sticks

D - 3 veggie tacos. 3 whole wheat tortillas, 2 crumbled up Boca Burgers, a little low fat cheese, tons of salsa, spinach leaves

I haven't posted here in a while, but since yesterday was definitely not a day that I had planned, figured I'd give it another try. I kinda had one of my old all day kind of grazing days. Now of course the difference is, and yeah it's a big one, it was all incredibly healthy, low-cal foods. But nevertheless I felt out of control and didn't like it one bit. I never even SAT down for a meal. I ate it all STANDING. I ate chicken breast, spinach, carrots, red pepper, broccoli, 1 tiny meatball, spaghetti squash and broiled tomatoes. Yup, I kinda emptied the fridge of the leftovers. Oh yeah, I had breakfast in the a.m. and I did sit for that one. And a 60 calorie no fat/no sugar yogurt.

So for today:

B- 1 cup high fiber cereal w/1/2 cup skim milk
S-60 calorie sugar free pudding
L- my biggest meal of the day today - Chicken breast w/lots of veggies, stir-fry style
Lite supper - some steamed cauliflower and 1 tbsp. peanut butter on 2 - 17 calorie multi-grain rice cakes
If I'm hungry a 60 cal yogurt.
And lots and lots of water

Have a great day everyone!!!

eusebius, what's piano butt? :)

lol ... piano butt is what happens when you are sitting in front of a keyboard all day long!! Your arms and hands get plenty of exercise, but further down it's another story ;) So your butt starts to be comparable to the piano in size ... and as much as I try to "practice my butt off", it doesn't seem to be working ...

HAHA! I was imagining a butt with key imprints or something...:p
