Weight Loss Support - February 15th - plan for a nearly perfect day
02-15-2006, 09:25 AM
Yesterday wasn't quite as perfect as planned (gave in to the chocolate temptation :devil: ), but that's OK. Today is a new day.
B - Instant oatmeal, green tea, banana.
s - 50g cheese and 2 graham wafers.
L - Sandwich (whole wheat soy; chopped poached skinless chicken, 1/2 tbsp mayo, shredded carrots, 2 large lettuce leaves). Large glass of water.
s - Plum.
D - Carefully portioned ham baked with pineapple, scalloped potatoes and broccoli (made with skim milk).
I'm pulling out the food scales for the cooked ham, because I know it will be a temptation to overeat. But, I have plans for the leftover ham. Most will be chopped and frozen to be added to soups and casseroles. No special plans for exercise today.
02-15-2006, 09:32 AM
Breakfast - bagel (small) with jelly; 2 scrambled eggs
Lunch - steamed broccoli and asparagus; Boca chicky nuggets
I do not have ANY snacks here at work today. Blah. I will have to go downstairs and get something eventually for that purpose which can be bad if I am not careful and mindful. And I have no idea what is for dinner either. Probably the last of the wheat pasta...or maybe when I FINALLY stop for watermelon I will pick up a salad as well? who knows?
Today could end up being a nightmare.
Tonights exercise: 3 mile run; crunches
Last nights exercise: speed work; 3.5 miles; 50 crunches

B- toast w/peanut butter
L-turcky sand. WW
s snack bar
D-I dont know yet
Last night I ate a hotdog...I did not eat at home so I had to eat what was there..I will try to do better today.
work out the same for today as yesterday

just a thought for you JuneBug, you may want to purchase that snack "before" you get hungry. then you will plan a more healthy snack in advance instead of giving into sugary cravings.
Today was a bannana and homemade egg mcmuffin.
LUnch is a Lean Crusine Panini
snack is an apple
dinner will be pork chops and turnips
and i probably will have to find something else to equal up to 1440. (?)

After last night's V-day dinner, today I am eating healthy! All my good intentions went to pot last night :dizzy:. When it came round to ordering, I opened my mouth to say "small white wine and a glass of water please" and out came "cosmopolitan please!". I swear to god someone was controlling me via a remote. Oh well!
Today I will eat:-
Breakfast - oatmeal, tea with milk
Snack - cottage cheese and crackers, getting bored of this, must come up with something else
Lunch - Undecided as yet. I did not bring anything. This could be bad. Going to aim for Chick-Fil-A grilled chicken sammich on whole wheat and side salad. We will see what happens.
Snack - half a whole wheat bagel and cream cheese, banana
Dinner - Venison tenderloin with cabbage
Water - 2 liters
Exercise - 30 mins cardio at gym followed by 45 mins circuit training w/weights followed by plonking on the sofa with dinner and Lost.

Well, as of today, I've given my cold the old-fashioned 10 days. I'd better get back on the cardio bandwagon.
Update to follow!

It is now almost a quarter to 12 here. I'm still at the computer in my pyjamas. I have not eaten, I have not exercised. I have not done any of my ebay stuff even tho my business partner has called and we've discussed some things that need to be done. Needless to say, I haven't run my errands today either (mostly left over from the first of the week).
And then I get this in an email ...... "All excellence involves discipline and tenacity of purpose." --John Gardner
I believe this is what my kids call a God smack!

Hey ladies, I thought to join you!!! Susan mentioned about it on one of her replies to my posts. I think it will help me to stay on plan.
Breakfast: 4 egg whites with 1/2 tbsp ketchup with 16.9 fl oz water
Snack: Dannon Light'n fit yogurt 16.9 fl oz water
Lunch: Tuna noodle casserole 16.9 fl oz water
Dinner: I am not sure but I am thinking about some leftover tuna casserole, or some salad with chicken and some more water.
Exercise wise I am thinking about doing 30 min of elliptical, and 30 min of stair master, and some weights. And 200 crunches
02-15-2006, 02:22 PM
Lunch was succesful! I fought off the urge for a philly cheesesteak w/fries and got Chick-Fil-A sammich, side salad and fruit cup. I am stuffed!
Junebug, how about a savory snack like almonds? or pretzels?
Hope the rest of you have a great day!
02-15-2006, 03:51 PM
Change of plan for me. Instead of going to gym, I am going to take my son to the mall, and will walk around for an hour or two.
02-15-2006, 03:56 PM
It pays to procrastinate! DH called and asked about two extras for supper. So I got my slowly diminishing backside into town, ran my errands, bought fixin's for spaghetti for five and french bread for four :o , tidied my kitchen and I'm back for a short respite.
I still haven't done my cardio (yuck ptewy).
But I tried on a dress! Too big hee hee! My day suddenly seems so much brighter :)
Hi Tsots! tuna noodle casserole and salad sounds yummy!
Kayleystar? good for you stepping outside the cereal box!
Anyothername? do you make your red beans and rice from scratch?
CoolMom75? We all have to try it at least once. We need to remind our little JuneBug there that at least vegetables are nicer that plain egg whites!
Readyfreddy? sometimes the best thing about yesterday is that it's over!
Everybody else!! You're making me hungry!
