Where is Jillybean????

No scale movement lately so I really hope I stick to today's plan and see that scale budge tomorrow.

kashi go lean hot cereal w/ 1 cup blueberries
subway turkey & cheese sandwich w/ veggies & vinegar
FF yogurt w/ 1 tablespoon walnuts
baked chicken w/ barbeque marinade w/ 1/2 cup rice cooked in veg broth
1 cup blackberries w/ 1/4 cup FF milk

Jilly, if you're reading this, what marinades do you use on your baked chicken. When I looked in the store (I shop at a store w/ whole foods, gourmet and commercial) most of the marinades were very high in calories, so I settled on the barbeque, which was pretty good.

Any other suggestions for lo-cal marinades for baked chicken would be appreciated.

Pre Gym Snack - 1/2 a medium banana - was old and mushy so couldn't manage it all

Breakfast - steel cut oats w/raisins, 1% milk, coffee

Snack - cottage cheese, apple and apricot compote

Lunch - Turkey Burgers with olives and feta cheese, mixed baby spinach salad, home made vinaigrette, 6oz cherries

Snack - laughing cow light triangle, 6 x triscuits

Dinner - venison chilli, brown rice, broccoli

Water - 3 liters+

Exercise - what a frustrating morning. I've been having these pains in my calves when I run and this morning they were so bad I could only manage 1.5 miles before I had to stop. I used the elliptical for 30 minutes afterwards. They don't hurt now, just feel very sore. I hope it's not my new running shoes :(. Very annoyed that I didn't get a full run in.

Good morning ladies! I know that I've been MIA for a little bit, but I am committed to posting here to assist me in being accountable...

B (7:50am): 1/3c cooked steel cut oats mixed w. 1/3 egg beaters w. splenda and 1/2 med. banana= 220cal.

S (10:30am): 1 med orange= 80cal

L (1:00pm): 6oz tuna w. mixed vegies= 170cal

S (4:00pm): 4oz f.f cottage cheese mixed w. 2oz f.f yogurt= 120cal

Wk: I am still recovering from a stress fracture in my leg so I've been really focusing on yoga. I do lift weights a couple of times per week. That's the reason why my calories are somewhat low. It is really hard loosing weight when you can't do much of any cardio. I am only allowed to do the stationary bike and I have to stay seated...

Any other suggestions for lo-cal marinades for baked chicken would be appreciated.

Just about any salad dressing makes a good marinade. Try a low-calorie italian or vinaigrette.

Here is an Indian-style marinade that comes out fantastic:
1/2 cup NF plain yogurt
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp dijon mustard
1/2 tsp poultry seasoning (salt-free)
1/2 tsp ground tumeric
1/4 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp ground black pepper

Can be used to marinate 1 to 1.5 lbs chicken. You can marinate the chicken in this for 4 to 24 hours. If you eat the chicken in 4 servings, the marinade adds no more than 20 calories per serving (and possibly less, depending on how much of it you end up eating).

Barbara, thank you so much for the marinade recipe. That sounds delish! I hadn't thought of using plain yogurt for a base, but of course its wonderful in Indian food.
