Weight Loss Support - Plan for a nearly perfect day ... Wednesday
06-13-2006, 10:53 AM
Let's start with several hours to think about it ... shop ... pack things up ... review our schedules ...
What are you going to eat for breakfast? Do you take a nutritious snack for midmorning? What about lunch? And something healthy for the afternoon? Supper? What if you get the munchies later in the evening?
Are you going to get up early and go to the gym? Will you walk at lunch? How about a nice evening bike ride? Can you run up and down the steps twice for every load of laundry?
Think about it today. Plan for tomorrow. Imagine the sense of accomplishment you'll feel when you fall into bed tomorrow night, having made a healthy plan and stuck to it.

Oh Courtnie, I'm sorry.

I have pm'd Courtnie to make sure she doesn't think we're just insensitively skipping over her family loss. I mean no disrespect in continuing this thread. She's a dear wee gal and we wouldn't want to hurt her.
Breakfast will be oatmeal made with egg whites.
Approx 3 times during the day I will have either turkey or salmon on a whole grain bread stuff and some crunchie raw vegetables.
Supper will be chicken breast with salad.
And after supper perhaps cheerios with soy milk.
Tomorrow is legs day for me and I will either walk or bike morning and night. Just 20 minutes each!

I just wanted to say thanks for all the kind words. Yesterday I don't worry about exercising and I wasn't too freakish about my eating or water or anything. But today I am back on. :)

I just realized this is TODAY's thread - and here I thought yesterday it was yesterday's. Anyway so here is my plan for the day:
Already had breakfast, yogurt, piece of toast with some cream cheese, and a left over chicken strip from last night.
S- coffee with fat free cream
L- sandwitch (whole wheat bread, mustard, deli chicken breast, low fat cheese, lettuce)
D- probably just soup or something, the boyfriend isn't feeling well
I have a bunch of snacks laying around incase I get hungry.
I will drink my 6 liters of water and I already did 80 min on my bike.

There you are Courtnie! How's your family hangin' in?
I went a bit off line there and had restaurant breakfast for lunch!

Hey Courtnie sorry to hear about your grandmother. I hope you are doing okay!
B - 2 pieces whole grain toast, natural peanut butter
S - Horizons organic low fat yogurt, 1.5 cup strawberries (strawberries weren't very sweet, added 1 teaspoon dark buckwheat honey)
L - big salad - spinach, baby carrots, 1/4 cup dried cranberries, 2 oz skinless grilled chicken, grape tomatoes, fat free balsalmic vinaigrette
S - mango
S - tall non fat sugar free latte, biscotti
S - cut up veggies (sugar snap peas, baby carrots, grape tomatoes, sliced yellow pepper)
D - I bought some whole wheat pizza dough from Trader Joe's. I'm going to attempt to roll it out and make home-made pizza (pizza sauce, spinach, mushrooms, feta, sun dried tomato). If it turns out horribly, I'll have veggie tacos.

My family so far is okay. My dad is a little.... in shock I think. When he came to tell me he just had this blank look at his face. He told me he hadn't even cried yet - and I bet he still hasn't. We were under the impression she had longer then 6 months left. I am doing okay, still really upset when I think about it. I just keep thinking about Sunday, how I wanted to go see her but I went and looked at houses instead (we had the time booked with the realitor, and had to put an offer in, so I figured I better go) I thought I will go see her in a day or so and then she died the very next day. It just makes me feel so aweful, I know that I shouldn't think like that. And my dad said when he went on Sunday ( when I was supposed to go with him) that she was sound asleep and she wouldnt of even known I was there anyway, but it still hurts.
I don't really know whats happening with anything yet. I havent talked to anyone else except my cousin. I called to tell her the news because her dad is a dink and knew he wouldnt (at least not right away). I think this weekend we will probably all go out to eat for fathers day or something - I should know more by then.
She was an amazing women and I just have to remember that. She was in a lot of pain, this was the best thing for her.

I love this idea for a thread. It actually made me get outta my chair and slice/dice some stuff for breakfast and dinner, and measure out my breakfast stuff.

It is a good idea but we wander off once in a while and forget to start it :)
I'll try to do better for a few days but I'm on vacation after Tuesday afternoon.
