Phase 1 + corn

B: 1/2 cup 2% cottage cheese
S: SF fudgsicle
Brunch: Big boss is taking us for brunch this morning. Scary thought. If an option, I will have an omelet.
Lunch: If at all hungry, I brought a Smart Ones beef pot roast meal (beef, mushrooms, cauliflower, green beans, carrots, gravy). Probably has trace amounts of wheat but it will be OK. Won't eat carrots.
D: Garlic-Lemon Dump Chicken, Corn on the cob, salad with Italian dressing

Dinners for this week:
Shrimp stir-fry, tomato slices for DH and red pepper slices for me
Dump Asian chicken and black-eyed peas, sauteed squash
Roasted Chicken of some sort, boiled tatoes for DH

Need to find a recipe using sweet peppers and pork chops??

Bumping this up as my Thursday update

Breakfast, more like brunch. I can't get to eating first thing in the morning. I am too busy nursing my coffee. I know it's bad. I was up at 8:30 today (which is really really late and unusual for me) It's almost a quarter to 11 now.

Prebreakfast: Coffee with splenda and fat free 1/2 and 1/2

B: 1/2 c eggbeaters
1/3 c part skim ricotta
1 c skim milk
splenda, vanilla, and ice...blended together.

s. Celery with Laughing Cow Lite

L. Flat wrap pizza, with sauce, pepperoni, and cheese...yum-O, but sauce was prego which may be too high in sugar.

s. Celery, laughing cow lite

D. Spring Greens with a Turkey Burger, some mayo, and Balsamic and Evoo dressing -- Oh and a glass of really good red wine.

s. Opted out of the sugar free - fat free chocolate pudding with fat free whipped cream. I took a finger full and then realized that I didn't need to automatically have a pudding for dessert. I am looking for an excuse to eat some, wanna give me one? LOL
I think that my glass of wine sort of counted in a way. Calling it a night for eating at 9 PM -- besides, I blew it and didn't exercise again. sigh. Tomorrow, one of my best friends is flying in from Chicago with her DH and DD, so I am making them dinner. I am promising to try to behave, but we really like to drink wine together! LOL. Maybe they wont want to have a bottle since they have to drive to Leesburg for the hotel. I am planning on looking up the SB friendly recipes and appetizers for the dinner menu. I'll let you know how it goes!

Have to go home tonight and make sugar-laden things for our "Beat the Heat" birthday break at work tomorrow that I am on the committee for. I am going to make the Oreo-Mocha trife as Jessie-friendly as possible and a banana cream pie from Cooking Light. There will be watermelon tomorrow so I am gonna load up on that!

You gals are always so thorough, sheesh. I am really bad at planning, cause I am always in a rush somewhere.

Breakfast: uh oh, I was on the go, Coffee, splenda, a touch of vanilla extract, and ff 1/2 and 1/2 -- I had to get the boys out the door for gymnastics.

Of course after spending the whole morning out, there was a LFcinnamon poptart that my little guy didn't even eat so, I took a small bite of that and then put it in a baggie so I wouldn't be tempted to snitch some. I don't even like poptarts! DH is a junk food eater, and I have forbidden him to bring things home. This was an exception. Usually, I don't touch them anyway, but still. SEE, thats what happens when you don't eat BREAKFAST!

Lunch: Taco Bake on Romaine with LF sour cream, a bit of cheddar cheese, salsa and tobasco. Yumm-O! and a SF Diet A&W

Smoked cod sounds good. Do you buy it smoked, or do you smoke it yourself?
