Weight Loss Support - Planning for Tuesday, Jan. 9

View Full Version : Planning for Tuesday, Jan. 9

I have overeaten the past 2 days, and I know why--I'm getting sick :( While some eat less when sick, I eat more because it helps to soothe my sore throat (which feels only about as wide as a straw this morrning). I'm also feeling tired and lazy (from being sick), so I didn't cook dinner last night and went out instead. And even after dinner (which did include dessert), I came home and ate some of Jeff's full-fat, full-sugar, full-everything ice cream. My weight doesn't seem to be very affected (I'm actually down 1/2 pound from yesterday morning somehow), but I need to get it under control no matter how much my throat hurts!

And so, here is my plan for today:

smoothie (drinking it now--feels so gooooooood on my throat)
lunch is a Secret Shop assignment out at a restaurant, so I'll see if they have some kind of broth-based soup. If not, I'll order the pork chop (Jeff's favorite from that restaurant) and eat the mashed redskin potatoes that come with it and bring the pork chop home for Jeff for dinner ;)
as needed throughout the day: 50-calorie all-natural apple sauce cups (with 100% DV Vitamin C each), 10-calorie sugar-free Jell-o cups (I made 3 flavors last night), fat-free yogurt, and 100-calories-per-cup creamy red pepper and tomato soup
I have chicken thawed for dinner tonight (since I didn't cook it last night), but if I bring home a pork chop for Jeff, then I'll probably just have more soup or maybe another smoothieSo yeah, I don't know how many calories I will have total (and probably not a heck of a lot of protein, either, but I also didn't exercise this morning--I think Vitamin C is more important to my body than protein right now), but I feel I have a much safer plan in place for success than the past couple days where I've just eaten anything I could get my hands on for the sake of soothing my throat.

Almost cleaned out my pb jar this morning. I don't think I can handle having PB in the house, so after this jar, no more. I haven't exercised this week either. Yay me. :(

B - 1 slice 9 grain bread
4 tbsps PB (sigh)
1 cup skim milk

L - 1/2 cup brown rice + 1/2 cup roasted veggies
1 cup ff yogie + 1/2 cup raisins (YUM - this is my new favorite snack, now if only I could make myself eat it when I come home in the evenings instead of bingeing on PB)

D - hm. Stirfry with brown rice? Maybe.

Almost cleaned out my pb jar this morning. I don't think I can handle having PB in the house, so after this jar, no more.
That's how I was, too--I could literally sit and eat half a jar of reduced-fat Skippy right out of the jar (I like the reduced-fat because it's not as sticky). And so, no more reduced-fat peanut butter in my house! I now only buy all-natural peanut butter (ONLY ingredient is peanuts, so no sodium or anything, either), and I like it on sandwiches and in recipes, but I don't like it plain, so I don't eat it out of the jar like the commercial crap.

Jill, hope you feel better soon. Yes, you had that ice cream, but that's the reality of life. As you already know, sometimes we get tempted and that's OK. As long as we keep it to a moderate portion and we get back OP ASAP then I say absolutely no harm done (though you may be 6 hours behind in reaching your ultimate goal :)).

Yesterday I did OK (1741 calories: that's good for me!) as it was monday and I was back to work.


whole wheat bagel w/ butter
Cosi hummus & veggie sandwich
Kashi oatmeal raisin & spice
Yoplait FF yogurt w/ walnuts
Small steak w/ 1/2 cup rice & 3/4 can green beans
Yoplait FF yogurt w/ walnuts
1 cup FF milk in my tea

TOTAL: 1584 cal

Exercise: 30 min elliptical, 30 min weights

heh, that's a cute way of looking at it :p What makes me feel actually really good about having had the ice cream and other over-the-top junk is that I so quickly realized WHY I was doing it and have planned and prepared myself to deal with the cause (sore throat) in a healthier way (with the many helathier snacks I have prepared and easy to grab whenever I feel the need).

Ooops, I forgot to add my sandwich in fitday so my plan ended up being over 2000 calories; I've just added the sandwich (switched to a Cosi pot roast sandwich at 510 calories) and removed the walnuts from the yogurt for a new total of 1860. Whenever I have that big bagel for breakfast I get into trouble, but I was just sick of cereal for breakfast this morning and no time to get anything else. I'll try to do without one of my yogurt snacks, but knowing me I'll be starving and will need it.
