Weight Loss Support - Planning for Thursday, Jan. 18
01-18-2007, 07:48 AM
I did well yesterday (came back last night to post what I actually had since yesterday morning's planning post was quite rushed). My scale appreciated me getting back on track, too (down 3.5 pounds from yesterday--hooray for drinking lots of water and shedding some water retention! ;) ). I'm back down to 283.5 today, which makes me very happy since I took a whole week off (from both diet and exercise) when I was sick and then binged like an idiot on Tuesday.
I may or may not have my TOPS weigh-in tonight...I've gotten notification that my services may be needed on a big project at work today, so I will most likely have to work late. My TOPS weigh-in now depends on just how late I may have to work.
Anyway, on to today:
leftover orange chicken
cranberry juiceI've added cranberry juice to my list because I have up to a cup of it a day. I add maybe 1/4-1/3 cup of pure cranberry juice (no water, no sugar--only ingredients are cranberry juice and ascorbic acid) to my 1-liter bottles of water. It makes the water soooo much easier to drink...for some reason, I don't much care for the tap water at work anymore, and I'm not about to actually go pay money for water at the store :p

my plan for today, is too not eat too many of those cookies I made yesterday... I ate a few too many yesterday though, haha
I am going to get on my bike in a few, I would like to do an hour and half, but we will see how I feel after half an hour - still sick :( I wont push myself if I don't feel up to it.
Thinking for breakfast I am going to try these
I had all the stuff in the fridge and they sound yummy! lots of protien too!
in the fridge I have 1 cup of pea soup left from yesterday and a bunch of pasta, also a slim fast shake - so I should be okay for today, as long as I stay away from the cookies! haha
also, 4 liters of water

sotypical-sorry your still not feeling well and kudos for trying to keep up with the exercise!
Here is my plan for the day:
B - optimum power breakfast cereal with soymilk
S - coffee and banana
L - off plan because of a luncheon/meeting. Am going to try not to go overboard, but I may have a cookie
S - blueberry fiber cake and/or NF yogurt and/or apple, depends on how hungry I am
D - some soup I pulled out of the freeze, I can't remember exactly what it is (maybe navy bean and turkey sausuage) but I do remember that it is on 250 calories per serving (that will help make up for lunch!), green salad
S - low cal pudding with some mini-meringues (but maybe not if I have a cookie with lunch)
Exercise: at least 45 min cardio, would be great if I could get back up to an hour but I'm not sure I'll make it. 45 minutes was a real struggle on Tues. 15 min abs.

doing good so far today
B: 2 slices lite toast, 1 scrambled egg, 1 cup cantaloupe, 1 cup watermelon, 1/4 cup cottage cheese
S: 1 orange
L: Broccoli Peanut Stir-fry, 1 cup cantaloupe, Caesar salad w/lemon juice and 1 tbsp dressing
at around 800 calories so far, now the hard part is staying on track at dinner time..
JillyB: I forgot what post had your chicken marinade recipe. What marinade's do you recommend? I didn't know how to cook boneless chicken in the oven, so I appreciate the recipe and will definitely be trying this.
