Oh Leigh! Here we are! Good morning!

24 pounds Leigh! Is Aug 12 a special occasion?

This head cold is kinda screwin' up my nearly perfect days this week. I'm tired and tired of it, ya know? I feel whiny and petulant. Argh, I don't tolerate that very well in other people.

I seem to have fairly comfortably settled into the 1500 calorie range and my weight's OK so ... :shrug: ... I guess it's my percentages that are most troublesome the last few days.

So for my food day to be 'nearly perfect' I'll shoot for over 30% protein, over 30% carbs and 20% or less of fats.
I should row too.

Breakfast: bagel with jelly; fruit cup
No morning snack
Lunch: mexican food joint with old co-worker. I plan to have soft chicken tacos and yes I am having some chips and salsa!
No afternoon snack
Dinner: tough one here. its school night for me and I didnt put anything in book bag for tonight. Therefore I will probably get a turkey on rye from the deli downstairs to take with me for dinner, along with some baked bbq lays.

no working out today. rest day for me.

Ick for me, I'm sick. Didn't feel like eating breakfast.

B: Slimfast Optima (lower sugar type) chocolate flavored in 10 oz. skim milk.

L: Boneless/skinless chicken breast meat sauteed with shredded carrot, fresh baby spinach and spices wrapped up in cooked cabbage leaves and baked (sort of my own concoction) with mashed cauliflower on the side.

S: Nothing, I slept.

D: Don't know yet. I need some comfort food. Maybe I'll have some soup.

I've got my son's sickies - headache, sore neck, sore throat, swollen-tender glands, stuffy head, all that fun stuff. So I haven't had much of an appetite, but I've done okay so far, I got a decent meal at lunchtime.

Lots of carbs today, should be ok though as I will need the energy to get me round the gym tonight. I am so tired today.

So far so good, gone to plan.

I am running out of fruits and veggies :(

Today I had cottage cheese for breakfast
a "burrito" without the tortilla for lunch (beans, salsa, sour cream)
and now I need to find something for snack and dinner.

Eta: Okay I had a big salad for snack.
Dinner will be spinach and salmon warmed up in some olive oil with garlic. And then I'll pour some tomato sauce over it. I might mix a packet of "Sweet One" into the sauce, so it tastes more like spegetti sauce.

Girls, girls! my fella's had chili for supper so this is what I had instead. I took one tsp of olive oil and garlic and warmed it in a nonstick saucepan. Thawed a whole package of spinach and sauteed it in that and then put a piece of salmon on top to steam. It was magnificent!

LOL, you mean like what I mentioned above? Tonight I realized I was out of spinach, so I used broccoli. The pan was drying up so I threw in some low sodium soy sauce. In my bowl I added tomato sauce. It was pretty good, and three superfoods! Can't beat that.

I also had three potstickers, from my kid's dinner. They also got stuffing, and my mouth was watering for it. It looked so good. And now that I've used up all my calories, I'm still hungry. :( But I was so sedentary today. So I really can't cheat.

Well, I foiled my fat % attempt but at least my calories were good. What's a pot sticker?

Japanese dumpling. They have bags in the frozen section at Costco, chicken and veg. I microwave them, than brown them a little in sesame oil on the stove. (my portion was pre-oil, lol)
