Okay, clearly I need this thread.

My food behavior lately is NOT acceptable. So I will use this bright shiny thread to stay accountable.

Wow midwife, I'm SO relieved that the meals thread is back!
I posted yesterday on the week 4 meals thread, and I'm glad to continue there today:
this is the plan:
wog 25 mins (done)

m1: yoghurt etc.
m2: musli bar
m3: cheese sandwich
m4: cc + cherries or musli bar
m5: pasta, eggplant, salmon
m6: 1/4 cup dried cranberries & 1/4 cup dried apples

relevation of the day: I was so tired yesterday that I went to bed after m4 and subsequently took a cup of soup after waking up, worked a bit and realized with a shock that I had passed m5 (dinner) altogether! So the wake up moment: even if I'm ravenous normally at 4 - 5 in the afternoon, I'm OK at 7 wether I eat a whole lot between 4-5 or just a bite. So I'll concentrate on the latter...hunger is not an excuse to stuff yourself, if you just eat a small meal, ( the cup of soup) the hunger will pass also.
This might be a no-brainer to all of you, but it was a light bulb moment for me!

Have a great day all,

Hey, I love those lightbulb moments, Rabbit!

1/2 bagel, laughing cow, pumpkin butter, protein shake
fruit, protein shake
turkey sandwich, zucchini
turkey, string cheese
dinner? protein, carb, veggies
1 hr weight lifting (it's this crazy power class where the goal is to lift heavier with each set--I surprise myself!)
protein shake

My goal: no SWEETS today! No girl scout cookies, candy, ice cream, etc.

Yesterday went well un till meal 5: I had pasta, salmon, leek& carrot but with creme fraiche. And m6 morphed into 2 deserts with whipped cream... Ah well, today bis a new day.

Did UBWO and I am typing with sore arms.
m1: yoghurt
m2: cc + cherries
m3: grilled cheese sandwich
m4: cc + cherries
m5 : ??? eating at a friends place: turned out at 1.5 square of lasagna
m6: ??? maybe some dried fruit.: turned out at 0.5 square of tiramisu dessert

Ilene, midwife ... glad to see that I'm not the only one that needs the accountability.

have a great day all,

Yesterday was POP....and guess what? If I don't eat more than one serving at dinner, I have leftovers for lunches! Woohoo!

Rabbit, I think this thread or the one like it in Maintainers is essential for me right now. Just goes to show that some of my bad habits are not dead. Yet.

3.5 mile run (done! woohoo!)
oatmeal with protein powder, blueberries, walnuts
protein shake, fruit
pork chop, squash, polenta
turkey slices, string cheese
protein shake (can you tell I need to go to the store? Thank goodness for protein powder!)
dinner: protein, carb, veggies

Have a great day ladies!

yesterday: 20 mins wog
m1: yoghurt
m2: pancakes
m3: fruit smoothie
m5: pasta with cheese & butter
m4: cc + cherries
m5: dessert.

Fairly disastrous evening due to being overtired & getting some disturbing news. I reacted by getting into bed and doing CBT exercises, which helped. Food wise, the dessert was not the wisest choice, but I survied and it could have been much worse. Today is a new day, and I did buy myself a present for my 50 th birthday, due in march: I got a light BB for my UBWO and I'm really looking forward to using it! My normal BB is 10 kgs (22 pds) and it is to heavvy for my bi's, also to cumbersome to keep putting plates on & taking them off.

plan for today:
might do LBWO, otherwise I really need to clean & pick up the house etc.
m1: glass of OJ
m2: yoghurt
m3: pancakes or grilled cheese sandwich
m4: cc + cherries
m5: big salad, might go over to a friend for a glass of sine before
m6: dired fruit

have a great day all,

Sorry about your stress, Rabbit. I'm glad you picked up some good exercise stuff.

Today (must go to store!)
protein shake, 1/2 bagel with laughing cow cheese

My friend has a run with some interval training craziness planned. I'll let you all know how it goes.
