First of all, I know we aren't supposed to dwell on off plan meals here, but I feel compelled to make the following public service announcement:
If you have been following SBD principals for over six months, you must ignore the commercials for the new bbq fast food cheeseburgers that play during every commercial break. If you give in, your body (which is now accustomed to whole grains, veggies, and good vibes) will be very angry with you and go into a violent revolt. A Violent Revolt.

Needless to say, back on plan today:
B-green smoothie w/ banana, tofu, spinach, almond milk, and cocoa powder. Mmmmmmmm
L-Lasagna roll ups (ricotta, broccoli, ww lasagna noodles, nsa pasta sauce), greek yogurt w/ almond butter and cocoa powder, clementine, red pepper strips
D-Poached egg and tomato soup w/ whole grain garlic toasts (new recipe, insanely good and cheap!)

02-07-2011, 09:50 PM
LMAO, UNT. We had subway yesterday and although I thought I made relatively good choices, my stomach was upset the rest of the day.

Good job getting back on plan today :)

Recipe for the poached egg and tomato soup? sounds yum.

02-07-2011, 10:20 PM
Here's a link to the recipe. My husband and I both loved it, and it was so simple :) Loving the recipes at wholeliving lately!

I love this thread because I get so many ideas for meal-planning and it makes me stop and think about the day before going into the grazing free-for-all

My plan for the day fell apart after lunch yesterday. I ended up eating handfuls of bite size frosted chocolate mini wheats of all things.I let the stress of babysitting my sick DGS, dragging him to the doctor with DS2 (also sick), and not being able to do anything I had planned, derail me. So, today is a new day and it's a beautiful sunny day. DGS is feeling better and went to preschool.

hugs to you, emma :) getting through our food issues is an arduous task. just recognizing that you have them is such a hard step.

Aw, thanks! I am on track for now but in a few days I am off on another trip so we'll see if I can hold it together. I have a serious all-or-nothing mindset that I have to overcome - I don't understand why, but once I make a slightly off-plan choice, I feel the need to ensure that I am really, really off plan. Something to work on, for sure.

Yesterday was good. Yay. Ate mostly according to my plan (left some things out, and the only things I added were SBD-friendly and properly portioned). Even went for a run, hallelujah!

Phase 2. Fruits, no grains.
B- Coffee with skim milk. Smoothie with kefir, fruit (strawberry & orange), protein powder and spinach - weird color but oh so good.
L - Veggie chili with 2 tofu links. Side Romaine lettuce salad with flax seed dressing. Green tea with ginger.
S - cottage cheese with 1/2 a pink grapefruit and cinnamon. 1 hard-boiled egg.
D - SBD-friendly eggplant parmesan, steamed broccoli, 1/2 sweet potato
dessert - one small square of dark chocolate & 1 oz walnuts/almonds

Ran the numbers: 1349 calories, 31 g fiber, 42% carb/29% fat/29% protein. Pretty good.

Well, my progress has been far from ideal, but I'm holding it together. I made cookies with the kids yesterday and of course sampled some (two exactly, 276 cal total :o ) but everything else was on track, supposedly, and I cut out a few things non-necessary things (dark chocolate and nuts) to compensate... ugh. I was starving later! Proceeded to keep grazing into the night. Just for laughs, I added up the calories for the day - 1918. Not horrible, and the grazing choices were on plan, but still... I'm not proud of my lack of control... It was a good reminder what sugar + white flour can do... I had consumed plenty of calories by the time I had dinner, but then was too hungry to go to sleep.

Another day, another plan.
Phase 2

B - black coffee with skim milk. Smoothie with kefir, protein powder, fruit (strawberries and blueberries) and spinach. This has been the best choice I have made recently!
L - out, but I will aim for something like a salad or veggie stir-fry, depending on when we go. Unsweetened tea.
S - Greek yogurt with some red grapes.
S2 - 1/2 banana with peanut butter
D - homemade pizza on ww crust with black olives, onions, spinach, tomatoes and roasted red peppers. Big romaine lettuce salad with flaxseed dressing.
dessert - ONE glass of red wine

02-11-2011, 02:17 PM
I'm planning on making cookies with the kids tomorrow -- not looking forward to that monster staring me in the face.

Felt like a moron at chair dancing this morning. mama just ain't coordinated enough. I could never make it as an exotic dancer. One of the moves was to have your SO sitting in the chair, and then from behind throw your leg over their shoulder...DH is REALLY tall and even when he is sitting, his shoulders hit above my, that move is out. I think DH and I would both be in giggling fits during the entire charade.

02-11-2011, 03:59 PM

02-11-2011, 06:42 PM

02-11-2011, 08:55 PM
