Weight Loss Support - Feb 3rd plan for a nearly perfect day

02-03-2006, 07:27 AM
Today I am going to eat:-

Breakfast - special k w/ raspberries and 1% milk, coffee

Snack - cottage cheese, rye cracker, tomatoes

Lunch - Chick-Fil-A Salad or Chicken Chowder Soup, undecided as yet

Snack - apple, half a wholewheat bagel w/light cream cheese

Dinner - Buffalo cubed steak in gravy w/mushrooms, cabbage

Water - 2 liters

Exercise for today - 25 mins cardio then 45 mins circuit training w/weights

I mentioned this in another thread but I'm so darn giddy I'm mentioning it again. Last night our two goats became parents for the first time. There is a cute white kid bleating in their house with mum. Dad is strutting round the pen looking very pleased and proud. It's going to be so hard leaving them to go to work, I'm worried if mum and baby will be ok! This the their first baby and our first baby goat!

Have a good day everyone!

Aww, a baby goat--how cute! I LOVE animals. I have been quite addicted to Animal Planet lately, and it's making me really resent the fact that I can't have any pets other than a cat in my apartment building, and I won't even do that because in addition to the expenses of having the cat, they charge an addition $30 per month "pet rent," a $250 pet deposit, and a $300 non-refundable pet fee :mad:

Well, I kicked my plan's butt again yesterday--left out the Campbelll's soup I had planned, so I only ended up with 1605 calories (and a lot less sodium!) :D

As for today:

instant oatmeal
2 Morningstar Farms grillers prime burger patties on wheat rolls w/spinach and Miracle Whip
Special K bar
and then we're going to the movies tonight, so we'll probably do dinner at Uno's--they have some great salads plus their nutrition info online, so as long I stay around 800 calories or less, I'm good to go :) Should be about 1650 calories including Uno's :carrot:

Here's a couple of gals who are up and at it early this morning. Good work. I've been doing some soul searching this morning. It ain't pretty. At my age a thoughtful frown isn't!

Let me think a bit. I'm sure I'll have my shake and I'm sure I'll have fruit yogurt and cottage cheese at some point. But I'm ruminating about exercise. I'll let you know.

I haven't planned out my whole day yet, but this is what I have so far:

B: Lean Cuisine Breakfast Pocket, 8 oz. low-sugar chocolate milk.

I never eat anything else in between breakfast and lunch.

L: 2 lowfat crab cakes and the rest of my mashed cauliflower.

Snack: I might just have what I had yesterday, 8 baby carrots and 1/2 cup cottage cheese.

And I don't know what I'm doing for dinner yet. I've got protein and a couple of veggies up there, I need to get some grains/fiber at some point.

Wrench in my plan!
DH came home for lunch and wants to go to London tonight for a few things. That'll be restaurant food ... oh how I love it!
Oh well ... I'll have a shot at healthy eating out. We'll be walking around a mall and a home show. Maybe I'll look at heart rate monitors.

Well today went to pot.

I've not been feeling well all day, tired, scratchy throat, felt nauseous this morning, headache. Didn't have a clue what I wanted for lunch, hadn't brought anything, didn't want Chick-Fil-A so went to the mall and got a philly cheesesteak and loaded fries :( . My only consolation is I left half the fries due to being full.

Will probably miss the gym tonight, I feel guilty as **** but my body just feels so tired. Also, this is the last time I don't bring a prepared lunch to work. I'm currently glugging down another liter of water. Home in two hours, I think I'll check the goat baby then go to sleep.

What a bleah day :( .
