Want to take bets on how many people post on last week's thread before they see this one? ;)

I have to mention my new favourite "snack". I've tried Quaker Crispy Minis before and thought they were just fine, but they've come out with some new ones that I absolutely LOVE (they're called Crispy Wholegrain). The stats are great: 100% whole grain rice, corn and barley, 0 trans fat, 0 cholesteral, low fat, low calorie (60 for 8 "cakes") and so tasty. I bought a bag of parmesan and roasted garlic :T and can't wait to try the other new flavours!

Yesterday was a good day for me, except I was lazy (didn't even walk the dog ~ took her to the park a couple of times and threw the frisbee and let her chase her basketball around until she wore herself out). :^:

Woo hoo, SAPF is back. I love to see my chickies come home to roost! Now stick around or I'll have to peck ya! :s:

Welcome to the group, Anne. We're finding that being accountable to ourselves and to the group really helps to keep us on track. Don't forget to post an introduction and jump into the other threads so we can all get to know you. :)

Hope you're feeling better soon, activeadventurer (even though you're enjoying the rest) ;) Good job on eating healthy food and drinking lots of water while you recover (I know I just want to consume ice cream and milkshakes when I'm sick) :^:

Hey Jilly, I'm dying to find some of these wholegrain crispy minis! I thought we were supposed to all the new stuff down here in the states before you guys, and then tease you relentlessly with it! :p No fair! :tantrum: ;)

I'll trade you some of my Yankee Kashi for your crispy minis. :^: So, we got a deal or what?? :D

Great to see you back, SAPF. :wave: I don't blame you for giving McD's the elbow when you can make something equally--if not more--delish for a lump less money. WTG!

Jilly: No pecking SAPF. :nono: Stick with those Quaker snackies you found. I'm going to keep my eye out for them here. I love this thread for sharing good products and ideas. Thanks.

Sorry about your cold, Dee. Hope it clears up quickly. I skipped the exercise yesterday too, but unlike you I have no good reason for it. :o

Welcome, Anne! :wave: Posting in this thread really helps me stay focused, knowing that everyone can see what I'm up to! :mag:

How did you do with that Snickers bar, Laura?

It must be good exercise, Synger. I've often fancied giving Tai Chi a whirl (course, I never have. :lol: ). It looks very calming which is something I can always do with.

Lunch: 4 oz thinly sliced ham, 10 RF Triscuits, carrots, tomato.

Exercise: None.

*I wish I'd thought about a cup of cocoa before wellying into those Smarties. :doh: Let's see: I enjoyed it more than the sweeties and it was only 64 kcals compared with 420!

Today is our 3 year anniversary. :) I dunno if we're doing anything special though. We'll see.... ;)

Sorry you're still feeling poorly, Dee. May it pass quickly.

Thanks for the well wishes. :) I won't go into too many details of how we celebrated for fear of being :censored:. :devil: Suffice to say, we had a quiet night curled up in front of the telly watching Animaniacs videos and chobbling on a dinner delivery of ribs.

Hello people. I am back from a truly wonderful holiday in the Caribbean....very idyllic, very romantic, very beautiful.......and apart from the compulsory croissants and pain au chocolat (I was in Guadeloupe....French Caribbean) for breakfast, and 4 icecreams (not bad, in 2 weeks), some pretty healthy food....(lots of pineapple, coconut, fresh fish, etc).

However, I have a LOT of work to do on the healthy eating/exercise front, and am determined to shift some of those pounds which have crept back on and are making my clothes too tight....This week I am focusing on healthy eating...next week I will pick up on the exercise.

So, today Wednesday I ate

Kind of Greek salad for lunch and dinner (cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, cucumber, marinated feta cheese, olives, bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar)

Grapes, banana, pear

Sorry I disappeared for a while. I haven't been online much. I've been working very hard painting the garage so the insurance company doesn't cancel the homeowner's insurance. It's such a pain. My fiance and I have been fighting a lot because I've been on edge lately. (We're fine though.) I haven't been sticking to my diet and exercise like I should be. I've been going pretty well anyway. I've been eating a lot of my newest creation! It's white rice with a butter and lemon sauce. You take some butter, some lemon juice and cook it up with some flour to thicken it up. MMMMM! Plus you can cook up some chicken to add to the rice. :)

Glad to hear you had a good time, Claire. And kudos for jumping right back into the healthy eating.

Well done for ditching the Pepsi, SillyFluff. I can't say as Kool-Aid is something I'd drink as a substitute, mind. :barf: although my nieces chug the stuff like it's going out of fashion! I must admit, I need my coffee caffeine fix first thing in a morning though. :coffee: What are you finding confusing about the calories? Anything we can help you out with?

Welcome back, Venus.

That's all you can do. (((HUGS)))) Some months right before TOM, I'm fine, no difference. This month was NOT one of those months. I had one day over 3,000 calories - I could not stop eating. I didn't make any horrendously bad choices, I just ate constantly! Ack! I was so depressed...but then, I picked myself up the next morning and was back at it, that's what ya gotta do. :grouphug Damn Hormones! :rollpin:

Sillyfluff, I know what you mean about getting confused by calories at first. You might want to try logging what you eat into a free program like Fitday ( http://www.fitday.com/ ) for a week or so and see what you come out with. I've been able to notice some interesting trends in my eating as I actually log not only what I'm eating but how much. It's made me MUCH more aware of portion size, for one thing.

SAPF, I also HAVE to have an afternoon snack with protein. Since my commute home is so long, it's usually a protein bar and some fruit. But when I'm not in the mood for that, I dig into the roasted almonds or a nut,seed, raisin mixture that I keep at my desk. The raisins just add a little bit of sweetness, it's not much. If you made your own mixture you could leave them out. I just have to be careful not to eat much (not more than about 1/8 cup) or the calories of the nuts get overwhelming. When I'm home on the weekends and need a quick afternoon protein fix, I grab a couple spoonsful of cottage cheese, or a low-fat mozzarella cheese stick, or a hard-cooked egg, or a glass of skim milk. Not a lot of fiber, but they give me the protein I need so I don't become a (completely) raving maniac. If you added a couple of Triscuits to the cheese, it might give you some of the fiber you want.

WEDNESDAY

Breakfast:
spoonful of peanut butter (precommute)
cottage cheese
banana

Lunch:
fried chicken thigh
roasted veggies
green beans

Afternoon snack to keep the Beast at bay:
protein bar
pineapple
4 wheat crackers

Dinner:
2 slices cheese bread, toasted, w/butter
Can of Progresso lentil soup

Snacks throughout the day:

I'm with Synger on the nuts as a snack food. Just oz of almonds or walnuts really satisfies me. I have to be very strict weighing them out though because I can easily get through far more than that once I start nibbling. :ink:

Thurs 15/09:

Breakfast: Fruit shake (7 oz banana, crushed ice, 4 oz strawberries, vanilla extract, cup 2% plain yogurt).
Lunch: 3 large sushi maki rolls, pile of raw veggies (broccoli, carrot, cauli, celery, radish, tomato).
Dinner: 500 ml tin Campbell's Chunky soup (Beef Fajita), 10 Wheatine crackers.
Snacks: ( cup Optimum Slim cereal, cup 0% milk, 15 g seedless raisins)*; 8 Quaker Crispy thingies (Mexican Fiesta). Thanks, Jilly! :)
Drinks: 1 litre coffee with 2 tblsp.half & half, 2 litres water, 500 ml Cabernet Sauvignon.

Total kcals: 1500 (plus free veggies)

Exercise: 3 miles WATP, 30 minute bike ride.

*I haven't had this yet, but I'm about to flop in front of the telly for a while, so I expect it won't be long before I do. ;)

Went shopping tonight. Walked around for an hour. Also went shopping this afternoon and walked around for 30 minutes.

Picked up some peaches and some bananas, and some baby carrots. So now I can eat fresh stuff instead of canned.

Yes, I probably will turn into a nectarine! I've decided lately - well I always knew, but hoped after more than a year and a half that things would change - that I have almost no impulse control with snack foods, possibly any food. I can't stop at a 1/2 oz of nuts, or a single serving of some of the 'crisp' type snacks. My weakness is late night crackers and cheese (not necessarily bad, but just too much). Since fresh fruit is pretty plentiful I'm trying to feed through cravings with them. It helps since I've always loved fruit, and always ate a lot of it, even when eating too much of other things. Anyway, today:

Breakfast (at home)
- scrambled egg white, egg substitute and cheese blend

Morning picking (at work)
- peach, plums

Lunch
- salad (mixed greens, cucumber, lettuce, tomato) with FF red wine dressing
- lean ham
- pineapple, grapes, orange

Dinner
- homemade chili with cheese blend
- baked tortillas
- salad (mixed greens, cucumber, lettuce, tomato) with LF balsamic dressing

Snack
- nectarine, plums

Total calories: 1389

(and we're now out of peaches, nectarines and there are only 6 plums left... good think that the farmer's market is tomorrow)

Exercise - 30 mins (1.5m) on treadmill, 15 mins light swim

11 almonds or four walnut halves is half an ounce. That's about 100 calories, and is often what I'll grab in the morning before heading out for my long commute to work (I eat breakfast at work). It keeps me going, staves off a hunger headache, and is remarkably satisfying for such a little bit of food.

Last night Hunter wanted to go out. One of the things I'm doing differently this time around is NOT to ***** and complain at him about food. Eating out is part of our lives. I have to deal. So I try to plan ahead and budget calories for it when I know ahead of time. And when I don't, I make due. I try to eat healthy choices, or at least small portions. And I try not to make a big production out of it. I enjoy what I order, and I take the rest home.

Our new favorite cheap sit-down place is Hard Times Cafe. It's a chili parlor, and also offers burgers and salads and inexpensive steaks. Last time we went, I got the chili with some trepidation, wondering about the calories. The Texas chili, come to find out, is ground beef browned in rendered suet, so it's twice as many calories per cup as their other chilis. It's also wonderfully tasty. But this time I got the Cincinnati chili instead. The way I usually get it is the the Bubba Chili, with chili over cornbread in a big "pasta" bowl, topped with tomatoes and cheese and onions, with sour cream on the side. I could only eat a third of it So I have two more lunches in the fridge of high protein, tasty chili. Yum.

Breakfast:
almonds
cottage cheese
pineapple

Lunch:
grilled cheese sandwich with grilled mushrooms and onions

Afternoon snack to keep the Beast at bay:
vegetable soup
cottage cheese

Dinner:
Cincinnatti Chili from Hard Times Cafe over cornbread, with cheese and sour cream
beer

Snacks:
lowfat mozzarella cheese stick


Drinks:

I love a spicy chilli. :T I haven't made it for ages though 'cause hubby will only eat it if it's very mild. I was cooking up two pots (one mild, one hot) but last time I mis-labelled them. :eek: Guess who burnt his delicate gob! :lol:

Breakfast: Shake (5 oz banana, crushed ice, vanilla extract, cup 2% plain yogurt).
Lunch: 3 large sushi maki rolls, pile of raw veggies (broccoli, carrot, cauli, celery, radish, tomato).

MIL and FIL are landing back here again today on their way back east, so I'll be sacrificing my bed (and sleep, no doubt) for at least tonight. I've made a nice, fattening chicken pie for them which I'll be serving up with cheese perishke (courtesy of this morning's farmers' market) in dill cream sauce. :devil: I, on the other hand, will be having something altogether more healthy--not because I'm an :angel: mind, I just don't like pastry. :barf:

Hi everyone, I've been traveling way too much these past two weeks and it's had an impact on my weight, I went away 2 weeks ago and stayed exactly the same, but I was away this week and I got a little cocky and came back and gained 3lbs.

I'm not exactly sure it's 3 lbs since I litterally got off the airplane last night and I know I retained water since my fingers are still swollen. Whatever it is, I'm back on track now and it'll come off soon enough!

I'm glad to be back and see everyone!

Ha! So much for my making good choices yesterday! I didn't measure or record anything I ate, and this morning I'm suffering from Calorie Amnesia--I can recall the healthy stuff, like the delicious golden beetroot that took an age to cook, but I'm rather fuzzy on much of the rest. :p That might be something to do with the empty bottles of wine I found on the kitchen counter this morning. :joker: And a big bag of high fat nibbly snacks has mysteriously disappeared.... :chin:

I did get in a 40 minute bike ride in the morning though. :)

Well, that was yesterday and I can't change it now. I'm rather surprised to find I don't have even a hint of the self-loathing that usually follows such a loss of self-control. In fact, I feel quite upbeat and positive right now. Now to maintain that feeling....

SOMEONE HAS BROKEN INTO YOUR HOUSE & DRANK ALL YOUR WINE & ATE YOUR SNACKS TOO!!!!! :lol: Been there, done that.

Beth, welcome back!! :)

synger, thank you so much for the counts on the nuts. That will help when making my snack decisions. I also found some REAL peanut butter lurking in the back of my fridge. I cannot be trusted w/it on a day to day basis, but will try & treat myself once a week. On Triscuits, it will make the time between lunch & dinner not seem too long.


Ok, so Friday we had a gas leak up the street at work. There is new construction going up on the corner & they hit a gas line. :eek: About halfway through the morning, I got headache/nausea, same as when the pilot on my stove goes out @ home. So my eating is not that much during the day.

9/16
1 cup coffee, 1 cup skim, in same glass
^^^another half cup of that^^^
2 cups peach tea, 2 cups green tea
2 meatless breakfast patties
1 serving tortilla chips
1 banana
1 serving Hershey Kisses :chockiss:
(1 kiss, 1 bite of banana, 1 kiss, 1 bite of banana, yummm)

1 sleeve saltine crackers :(
1 can Healthy request chicken noodle soup

maybe some water

dinner w/my best friend:

margherita pizza (not sure how many pieces, by then I'd been out in the fresh air for awhile & was hungry. Margherita pizza is red white & green: fresh tomatoes, fresh mozzarella & fresh basil. I rolled out the pizza crust & mine turned out awesome. :) )
1 margarita
1 ounce marsala wine
2 sips of a drink called Haunted Bride (don't, it was like lighter fluid)
1 small drink that was frangelico & rum & seltzer (mostly seltzer)
1 liter water, maybe more


Then yesterday was my Walk for PKD in beautiful scenic Green Bay:

2 cups coffee w/milk
1 cup coffee w/heavy whipping cream :dizzy:
1 everything bagel
2oz chive onion cream cheese
1 snickerdoodle cookie :T (eaten slowly & every bite savored)
2-4 Haribo raspberries (candy, awesome, should not be purchased by me)

4 bottles (500ml) water
2 mini Jimmy John's sammiches (about 1/3 of a regular sammich)

1/3 of an order of chicken nachos, no beans
1 bison burger
the piece of bread under it, I think it was pumpernickel
2 kinds of cheese on burger
sauteed mushrooms & onions w/burger
slice of tomato
cucumber salad
kosher dill spear
bite of railway roast
bite of garlic mashed 'tatos
1 root beer float

1 can Mt Dew

I will try to find links to places I went (or not, since I just remembered the policy on that). One of the main attractions for me in Green Bay is, of course, Bay Beach. I went on all the rides & only spent $5 on ride tickets. If you're ever in the area, it should comfort you to know all their rides (except the kiddie rides) can accomodate a 300# woman. :)

The restaurant we went to was Titletown Railway Brewery??? (I have no idea) They are downtown across the street from another brewery & located between 2 train tracks, and they make their own beer. The staff kept saying East & West. And they serve root beer that's a recipe from an old place on Velp Ave, so that is the kind of root beer I got in my float. I took it to go & drank it periodically on the way back to Milwaukee.

I won a prize for being the individual to raise the second largest amount of money!!! (I raised about $700, and received a gift certificate to WalMart) The walk will be in Green Bay again next year, so plenty of time to plan & maybe get a team together to walk. :coach:

After all that yesterday, I wasn't hungry at night, so just had a can of Mt Dew to stay awake for the drive back here. Oops, better log that.

Today I slept this am, recovering from the 2 mile walk in the blazing sun. :)

4 cups rather weak (that's why 4 cups :lol: ) chocolate mint coffee
