Weight Loss Support - Monday Planning Thread (I need it!)

07-10-2006, 09:06 AM
Today's plan:

breakfast smoothie (skim milk, ice, 1 banana, 1T natural peanut butter)
salad (spinach, chicken, strawberries, almonds, broccoli, cabbage, reduced-calorie dressing)
pumpkin dessert thingy
something from a restaurant called Chevy's--I'll have to see if their menu is online (not my choice--we're meeting some of Jeff's friends who are visiting from Canada)Add to the menu at least 1 trip up 4 flights of stairs and at least 3 liters of water. As of this morning, I'm down .5 from the shocking realization of last week's weigh in, so at least I'm slowly heading in the right direction even after being pretty bad during the weekend (family cookout, family restaurant dinner...).

I really need this too:

D- not sure

No exercise today, I am recovering of my 5 days none stop of packing, paiting, cleaning and unpacking and crazy shopping. My body is liking the relaxing haha. I WILL DRINK 6 LITERS OF WATER today! I have been slacking on my water to0 :(

Courtnie - 6 liters is quite a bit for your kidneys to handle when you've been drinking far less (I assume). Be careful...unless you're exaggerating and I'm being slow. In that case, sorry! :p

Sunnigummi - I usually have 6. But for the last 4 days I have had none :(

Hello everyone! I could not possibly have planned today. I was on standby for an ambulance run that never transpired and I ended up spending most of the morning (oh I guess it's afternoon now) fiddling with computers so I could get at our ebay thingee. Argh.
The good news is that I've eaten clean. The bad news is, all I've had is a bowl of oatmeal.

So for the rest of the day .... chicken, salad, brown rice for supper.
I should have cottage cheese and crunchie veggies right now.
And I've promised myself 15 minutes of cardio and 15 minutes of weights (at least) I'm hoping it'll catch on if I ever get started.

Jilly? what part of Canada are your friends from?

Jilly? what part of Canada are your friends from?
ha, I have no idea! They're actually Jeff's friends from high school--he is in the military stationed to do some sort of training up there. All I know is they said it was about a 10-hour drive down to our area (DC). Maybe I will ask them tonight at dinner :)

07-10-2006, 03:54 PM
B - 2 pieces of whole grain toast, natural peanut butter

S - Horizons organic fat free plain yogurt, 1.5 cups strawberries

L - big salad with chicken, carrots, orange pepper strips, grape tomatoes, dressing on the side

S - cherries

S - cut up veggies - carrots, grape tomatoes, yellow pepper strips (store was out of sugar snap peas :( ) Ended up not eating these, just a timing thing

S - tall non fat sugar free latte

D - not sure, I am handing off some materials to my localization vendor tonight and said we'd grab something to eat. I think I'll go to the mexican resturant next door and get a bowl of black bean soup (no cheese) side of pico de gallo and a whole wheat tortilla. Ended up going out for sushi instead. I had yellow tail and salmon sashimi, seaweed salad and a california hand roll.

S - 100 calorie kettle corn. I was oddly hungry and also had a handful of dried apples.

I hope I like this menu, heh :) I made salads for 4 days, I have strawberries/yogurt for 4 days, cherries and cut up veggies for 5 days. Going to be a cut/paste cut/paste week for the planning thread!!

B- 2 flax waffles with 2 Tb peanut butter
L-vegetarian sushi
S-ff/sf latte
D-fresh green beans, corn on the cob, broccoli and a small piece meatloaf
S-popcorn, 1 Lindor Ball

Thanks for this! I love reading what other people are eating. I always get good ideas (or am shamed into getting good ideas!)

Breakfast -- strawberry, yogurt and protein power smoothie

Lunch -- grilled (low fat) cheese, mushrooms and broccoli sandwich*; nectarine

Snacks -- Activia yogurt, banana, 2 or 3 apricots

Dinner -- salmon with basil and lemon, steamed baby zucchini

*using up the last of an excellent sourdough bread. The rest of the week, lunch will be sliced chicken on baby salad greens with raw veggies and a small amount of dressing.

Tonights dinner is chicken breast (boneless skinless) with shake and bake (bad I know), lipton side kicks (another bad), and veggies. After that calories should be just under 1600

I am just finishing my 5th liter of water so I should make my 6.

Monday didn't turn out too bad. I had ice cream, pbj on toast and a lite beer but I've done worse.
