Not a great start to the day for me. It started off bad at the gym, I struggled through my cardio and weights. My outer upper arms (no clue what this particular muscle is called) hurt like mad after Monday's session. This made pull ups and dips so very much more difficult and I only managed one set of each. The cardio was rubbish too, I was hot, tired and had no energy so only managed 5minutes on the treadmill and 20 minutes on the elliptical. Very frustrated I know I can do better than this but I am so sore today still :mad:. Add to that I didn't have anything fixed for breakfast so got an egg mcmuffin and oh my lord it was nasty, so I ate half and threw the rest in the garbage.
Oh well, got food for the rest of the day:-
Breakfast - 1/2 egg mcmuffin :barf: , coffee
Snack - 1/2 whole wheat bagel, peanut butter
Lunch - Bean curry with brown rice, raita, banana, 2oz chicken breast
Snack - cottage cheese, peach bits
Dinner - eating out at a friends, so who knows
Water - 2 liters+
Exercise - 20 mins cardio, 20 mins weights
Let's hope today gets better.

B - Oatmeal with teaspoon each of brown sugar and smart start butter w/flax oil
S - orange pepper and spinach
L - Brown rice, tofu stir fried with mushrooms
S - sweet potato
D - Brown rice, asparagus, tofu and carrot stirfry
Had to add in another snack, my calories/fat were way to low, so after dinner snack, is 1 cup fat free yogurt with a cup of unsweetened, frozen peaches tossed in.
For the record, this is the first "deit" I've ever done, in which I worried about getting enough IN instead of taking it all OUT. I love this way of eating, I can eat so much MORE and still weigh so much LESS. And frankly, that rocks.
Yesterday, I ended up changing all kinds of stuff about my food plan, but I was still well below 1800 calories for the day, so all's well that ends well, right? :dizzy:
As for today:
cup of skim milk (no time for cereal--got a late start this morning and had to brush snow off the car!)
red pepper and tomato soup w/croutons
natural peanut butter and organic reduced-sugar jelly on a whole wheat potato roll (I use them as hamburger buns, but I only had 1 left, so not enough for a burger meal, so figured I'd use it for a sandwich before it got moldy--besides, it's only 80 calories per bun compared to 100 calories per 2 slices of bread ;) )
ham, turkey, and cheese in a wheat hot dog bun (for same reason as the above hamburger bun)
wheat pasta w/marinara sauce, brushetta, and shrimp

Alright, so it's only about 12:30, and my plan has already changed. I went and got lunch with a coworker, so instead of my pbj sandwich, I had a salad (romaine, spinach, cucumber, grilled chicken, hard-boiled egg, red onion) with honey dijon dressing (which came in a packet, so I couldn't have more than 1 serving :) ). Total calories for the day will still only be about 1600.

Jill - good call! Those unplanned meal changes can throw me for a loop.

This hasn't been a great week for me. My birthday was Sunday and we had a small dinner party to celebrate on Saturday night; I've been eating lots of leftover Indian food and birthday cake since then. So I've decided this will be a "maintenance" week and I'll get serious about losing the holiday pounds next week.
Today's plan is pretty sketchy:
B - Go Lean cereal with soy milk
S - fruit, coffee
L - not sure, probably a sandwich and a salad. It will be on plan, whatever it is.
S - fiber cake
S - NF yogurt with berries
D - leftover Indian food (definitely off-plan, oh well, at least the birthday cake is gone :devil: )
S - low cal pudding, mini-meringues
Exercise: 1 hour with trainer (at least I've been on-plan with exercise all week)
02-07-2007, 01:22 PM
B: 1/4 c egg whites w/ cheddar cheese, 6 oz V8, 2 slices chicken bacon
S: SF, FF yogurt
L: chicken caesar salad w/ pita bread, apple
S: cheese stick
D: chicken divan, salad (maybe), sauteed mushrooms
S: peanut butter cookies (homemade) or chocolate SF pudding
Have a fabulous day, everyone!

So my plan changed quite a bit, because my boss invited me to lunch with him and a client....
B: egg whites w/ cheese, chicken bacon, V8
S: cheese stick
L: stuff I don't even know the names of -- Indian food. 1/4 slice of naan bread (eep!)
D: chicken caesar salad, apple, mushrooms (maybe)
S: pb cookies or SF pudding
This was the first time I've cheated since I've been on SB (Jan. 8) and honestly, the food made me feel like GARBAGE!! I felt good when we went, and by the time we were finished eating, I had a headache (sugar?). By the time we got back to the office, I was so tired I wanted to have a nap! Can't wait to get back OP tomorrow (well, tonight)! Do you think this will have done much damage to my weight?
