View Full Version : Planning for Wednesday, Oct. 18

Wow, ususally by Wednesday, I'm thinking, "Wow! The week's already half over!" But today, it's more like, "Ugh, it's only Wednesday?!" I think it's because I'm getting bored at work :dizzy:

Anyway, despite what day it is "already" or "only," gotta plan, plan, plan! I am PSYCHED that I got up early again today and did my 30 minutes of WATP :carrot: 2 days of good exercise in a row for me is more than I've done in a LONG time :devil:

As for food for today:

5 breakfast turkey sausage links
Michelina's Lean Gourmet frozen meal - 3 cheese chicken
spaghetti squash with sauce (and turkey sausage mixed in the sauce)
6 oz chicken breast baked with bbq sauce and reduced-fat cheeseThat comes to about 1250 calories, but we've also been having instant pudding every night, so I'm sure we'll have something tonight, too--probably a smoothie since I am out of Cool Whip and like to have Cool Whip mixed into my pudding.

Ugh, yeah I'm a bit, "Crikey, Wednesday already AND, only Wednesday - I'm soooo tired"


quorn burger and a dry-fried egg

2 apples, a satsuma, a yoghurt and a piece of chocolate
(I'm still hungry so I'm drinking tea!)

turkey burger with string beans


salmon with some kind of vegetable goodness!

possibly a hot chocolate and a few dates or something and a square of chocolate

No exercise planned today, I don't think I have enough energy to go to the gym and I need to go and shop for my afternoon snack! :lol:

No matter what I plan lately, I end up at about 1700 or 1900 cals. So today I think I'll plan to make that healthier and to burn off a bunch.

Thanks! And man, it IS early. I was up at 4am yesterday and 4:20am today, but it really feels good to get it done and out of the way. I always said I would exercise after work, but I came up with WAY too many excuses :devil:

Rosario--what kind of turkey sausage did you have? I used to get the ones that are sold in the meat cases, so they came in a styrafoam tray just like other raw meat, but then I couldn't find them the last time I went shopping, so I got a box of pre-cooked turkey sausage links by Banquet (they are in a yellow box sold with the other breakfast sausages), and they are SO much better, IMO (plus, they actually have LESS sodium!). All that to say, not all turkey sausages are created equal :p

Jillybean--those are the ones I got!! I think I overcooked them though and that's why they came out a bit tough. The taste was good, I just didn't really like the texture. I'll have to keep a closer eye on them next time!

Yeah I'm with all of y'allz. I thought today was at LEAST Friday. Can't wait for the weekend!!

B - 2 slices multi grain, whole wheat bread
1 egg
1 cup skim milk

S - None but water is not filling me up so I'm debating as to what to get to tide me 'til lunchtime.

L - 1/4 cup Italian rice salad
1 small piece of lasagna (veggie, homemade)
1 8oz container plain yogie

S - Dunno - maybe a couple of french twists (120 cals)

Exercise: Finished 35 mins on treadmill @ gym. Big fight next to me re: treaddies so I think I'll just go on the track until it snows or something...

I agree, this week is dragging by, probably because I have big plans for decorating the house for Halloween this weekend and I'm really excited about it (I'm a surburbanite, it doesn't take much to excite me these days).

Here's today's plan:

B - high fiber cereal with soy milk
S - pluot, coffee with sweet-n-low and soy milk
L - not sure. I have an indian meal from Trader Joe's that I really want to eat but I don't think it will fit into the calorie plan so I'll probably end up eating a sandwich. Also, a tomato, cucumber, and raspberry salad with balsamic vinegar.
S - english muffin, 1/2 with peanut butter and 1/2 with NF cream cheese
S - NF yogurt with raspberries
D - Beef and tomato stew, green salad
S - Chocolate meringues from Trader Joe's (only 9 calories per meringue!)

I cooked it just like Jill said.

3 min, cut in half, but then I just did 5 min because I only did half.
