Weight Loss Support - February 7th plan for a nearly perfect day

02-07-2006, 10:49 AM

Well, I've had a rotten past few days. Sick over the weekend, didn't eat too well. Yesterday was just awful, bad day at work, had a small car bump, etc.etc.

Today hasn't started off great either, forgot my keys to get into the office so had to wait outside for 30 mins till my co-worker showed up. Oh and my lights have gone out on my car so I'm driving our 12 year old tank like truck.

Today I will eat:-

Breakfast - special k w/raspberries, 1% milk, tea

Snack - half a wholewheat bagel, cream cheese, baby carrots

Lunch - grilled chicken salad w/light dressing

Snack - half a wholewheat bagel with banana and peanut butter

Dinner - chilli w/brown rice

Water - 2 liters

Exercise - missed the gym yesterday so tonight I'll be doing 30 mins cardio then 45 mins of circuit training w/weights.

Let's see, today so far.....

B: Hash brown patty (these patties are not pre-deepfried, they're just straight frozen shredded hash browns, 60 cals each) 'fried' in fat-free cooking spray, 2 strips Morningstar Farms bacon, 8 oz. skim milk.

L: Tuna Patty (made with one whole 6 oz. can tuna) Green Giant creamed spinach in lowfat sauce, 4 oz. fat-free cottage cheese.

S: Some more veggies, not sure which yet.

D: Morningstar Farms Chicken Patty on a whole wheat 'lite' bun. Not sure yet what I'm having with it.

Most of my protein source today comes from soy products and the tuna.

(((hugs)))) Lynne! I hope your day gets better. Good for you sticking to your plan, though.

My plan today:

breakfast: cottage cheese, beets
Lunch/snack:huge salad, pea soup
Dinner: Salmon, spinach, brown rice, WW toast

I'm late! Poor planning? But now's as good a time as any to start planning.
I have a cold too Lynne. I don't get sick very often and really don't like it. I tried the treadmill yesterday and started coughing after two minutes. I'm a bit cautious today.
I blew yesterday food wise very badly. That will not happen today.
I've had my shake. Pineapple, peach and melon today.
I have left-overs for my fella's so I think I'll have salmon for supper.
I don't know about the rest. I'm not hungry. I do have some left over brussel sprouts that might be nice with cottage cheese a litle later.

Zoe? what's your protein percentage?

2 scrambled eggs; toasted bagel with jelly
some cantelope
wheat penne/spinach/salmon

Thanks for the :hug: Coolmom I needed it!

Today has gone well so far, I weighed in for the first time since I started my new plan (Jan 16th) and I've lost 6 lbs so I'm thrilled about that.

I did discover though today that I probably need to lay off the Paul Newman's Light Raspberry & Walnut salad dressing, had it on my chicken salad and I feel sick as a dog now. I can still smell it too, making me feel nauseous :dizzy: .

My weight loss revelation of today is making me feel very encouraged about the gym tonight.

Mmmmmmm, chocolate.


02-07-2006, 07:39 PM
Stop that right now! All of you ... step away from the chocolate!

02-07-2006, 08:15 PM
i dont know about that susan! :) whoever made these and left them in the kitchen at work first off, is MEAN, and did a FINE job with them!

oh well, my yummy dinner is now made, and i did my run. plus its THAT week, so the chocolate was calling me today! could have been worse, those cookies were in the kitchen ALL DAY!!

02-07-2006, 08:41 PM
I truly understand June, it's simply wrong to leave those poor cookies in the kitchen all alone all day like that. Poor cookies! Mine ... poor lonesome darlings were sealing in an airtight container. I simply couldn't stand how terrified they looked!

02-07-2006, 10:35 PM
I was doing really good today UNTILL I came here and saw all the cookie talk....Ok ladies back away from the cookies...lol

02-08-2006, 01:11 AM
I had a lazy day, and went to Subway for dinner. Dh and I are not cooks, so the kitchen time wears on me. But I feel refreshed after going out.

Protein is okay (25%). I had a carb day, lol.
