Another week, another shot at this!

I was STARVING this morning after being up all night waiting for babies, and I really wanted a fully loaded breakfast burrito. I made a better choice!

eggs, refried beans, red chile, cheese, roasted zucchini
cc, berries
protein pancakes
protein shake, fruit
1 hr weights
postworkout protein shake

It's drizzling here. :( If it's going to rain I would much prefer a fantastic thunderstorm.

here's my boring food:

egg / eggwhites oatmeal
yog protein bran
left over spaghetti maybe an egg and whites
40 minute run
supper -- not sure what yet

03-09-2009, 02:35 PM

and my boring food:
1/2 cheese sandwich
1/2 cheese sandwich, soup
yoghurt, cc + cherries
rice, beef, green beans
yoghurt, cc + cherries OR dried fruit.

I did a 25 mins wog this morning, had to take it slowly because now my R knee started to act up, so i tried something different that I got from my friends running class: instead of walking in between i jogged much more slow in between. AND I COULD DO IT!!!!!! This is MAJOR, as I never could run for 3+ minutes. Apparently the whole interval thing of walk -run at consecutive higher speeds hade made me learn how to jog longer & slower as well!! Also my friend has running "homework" from her starters group and asked me to join her for that. I'm considering...altough it is outside and at the end of the day I might just do this.

Have a great day all,

Dinner turned into shrimp tacos (corn tortillas) with cabbage, roasted veggies, and guac.

Morning snack was skipped but I threw some extra cottage cheese and an extra egg into my protein pancake mix.

I had a nice workout. Hope you all had a good day!

3.5 mile run
oatmeal with protein powder, blueberries, pnb
cc/berries, walnuts
shrimp, veggies, corn tortillas
turkey slices, apple, string cheese

I just started my first BFL challenge YESTERDAY! I'm on day 2. I'm a vegetarian and I like to eat as many "super foods" as I can, so my eating will be a bit different than the BFL recommended plan. But I'll try to stick with the program as much as I can.

Yesterday I ate...
Meal 1: 1 slice sprouted grain toast with 1 tablespoon organic PB
Meal 2: 1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese with 1 sliced banana
Meal 3: veggie BLT on sprouted grain toast
Meal 4: handful pistachios and an apple
Meal 5: 2 tablespoons hummus with handful of whole wheat pita chips
Meal 6: Whole wheat linguine with a fat free cottage cheese based "alfredo sauce" topped with kale sauteed with a little EVOO and garlic & an organic mixed greens side salad topped with cherry tomatoes, blackberries, and balsamic vinegar.

Meal 1: 1 slice sprouted grain toast with 1 tablespoon organic PB
Meal 2: Greek yogurt (one container has 14 grams protein!) & berries
Meal 3: Larabar and 12 oz fat free milk
Meal 4: whole wheat pasta, cottage cheese, arugula & tomato
Meal 5: cottage cheese and berries
Meal 6: handful peanuts

Midwife - you are right. I tend to eat the same thing every weekday apart from dinner stuff. The strange thig is that I still feel compulsed to write down the plan and the execution every day, and if I don't I feel like I gve myself permission to eat everything in sight. Weird.

so here goes:
m1: yoghurt etd.
m2: half cheese sandwich
m3: soup & other half cheese sandwich
m4: yoghurt, cc, cherries (& some cookies that dd baked0
m5: rice, beef, peas
m6 ? dried fruit

exercise was UBWO. I did not change my routine, but I added 1 kg to the BB so I now have 22 kgs for the chest press.

have a great day all,

I write my plan in the morning and what has been missing the last 3 days are updates that include large amounts of cookies, Little Debbie snacks, and potato chips. I must get a grip. I will get a grip. I have been thinking a lot about why I make those choices and justify junk food, and I have developed some things to tell myself when tempted. Also, most of it is gone now and won't be replaced.

oatmeal with protein powder, blueberries, pnb
protein shake, berries
salmon, flat out wrap
must go to store

will try to get a run in. poor weather here. 1 hr weights tonight.

Welcome Genesis! And can I say that your greens with cottage cheese and blackberries and pear sounds delish!

Looks like a POP food day. Yippee!

Hi girls, this is probably my last post for the next week. DH and I are off to a vacation in New Orleans :dance: starting tomorrow :D

I have been totally off plan food wise this week but I did exercise... Next week is a total write off but I usually am quite careful on vacation...

Welcome Genesis :wave:

Oh my!! Have a great time in NO!!!! I would not even try to stay on plan. I admit it! Bread pudding, gumbo, po' boys.....Not even a chance of staying on plan. You are a far better woman than I if you eat well in that fabulous food place!

Good morning! So....2 days POP and the scale read: 152. Yes, I have a set point. I should be grateful. If calories = math = poundage gained, it should have been higher. Goes to show how awesome muscle is! Thank goodness!

protein shake, kashi with skim
turkey and apple
tuna sandwich, hmmm do I have any raw veggies?
protein shake and fruit
dinner will be pizza & salad

exercise: Blarney Stone 5K and some garage weightlifting to hit what I didn't this week. Or just to do stuff that's fun!

03-14-2009, 11:04 PM
midwife & Ilene, thanks for the welcome!

I like reading everybody's food for inspiration.

Today was a not so great day for me. I was busy, busy, busy so getting proper meals in was a challenge!

Even though I was sore as all get-out, I got up and ran a local 10k this AM. I was glad I did it as I know I would not have pushed my cardio so hard for so long this AM if I wasn't racing.

Now on to the not-so-good part...food!

1. Bite of a Larabar, 1/4 of an orange & a latte
2. cup of decaf and 1/2 of an apple bran muffin
3. handful peanuts
4. green salad, eggs, 1/2 slice dry wheat toast
5. container greek yogurt

Tomorrow is my free day. I don't plan to go hog wild, but I am meeting some friends for breakfast at my favorite breakfast restaurant. I'm getting a veggie omelete, breakfast potatoes and a small blueberry pancake (instead of toast)! That's my one cheat meal of the week! It's sooo good. However, I never eat the whole meal - just too much food!

I hope everybody is having a great weekend.

The pizza last night totally dehydrated me. I know I'm retaining water this am so I did not get on the scale.

kashi, strawberries, skim, protein shake
salad with protein and a carb
turkey and fruit, laughing cow
dinner will be a tuna sandwich with avocado, raw veggies on the side

no exercise today.
