Weight Loss Support - Pumpkin Planning for Tricky Tuesday, October 31st!

10-31-2006, 05:20 AM

Today I am cutting out bread. :badbat: I am eating ALL the tiny little clementines on my desk - 1) They are getting old and 2) I am coming down with a bug and need my vitamin C!!! :ghost:

chestnut mushrooms, 2 slices trimmed bacon, 1 egg

0% fat greek yoghurt, smidge of honey

GYM GYM GYM!!!! :bat:

medium jacket potato, 1/2 C cottage cheese :witch:

More snacks throughout the day:
2 apples, 7 clementines!!!! :spid:

1/2 low fat mozzarella ball

Maybe GYM depending on energy levels (I'm skiving kickboxing - I am having ISSUES with people there, and I don't necessarily want to get beaten up 4 days before the wedding!)

Either quorn sausages or something like that that's sitting in the fridge, oh and mange tout

Early bed! :sklol:

Alright--NO Halloween candy for me today! Yesterday, I had a really bad headache at work, and no one had any Tylenol (I am allergic to Advil and Aleve and stuff, so Tylenol is all I can take), and the girl who sits next to me suggested I eat some chocolate because it would help my headache. I told her I'd rather suffer with the headache because I knew if I allowed myself 1 piece of chocolate, I would end up eating more like 10 :devil:

Anyway, I got up at my usual 4:15 this morning and did my WATP DVD. Now on to food:

5 breakfast turkey sausages
applesauce (I spent the extra $$ and bought it in the little single-serving cups or else I know I would eat half a jar all at once :p )
Lean Gourmet frozen meal - creamy parmesan chicken
soy crisps (ranch)
Lean Gourmet frozen meal - whole-wheat rotini with proscuitto and basil
baked chicken breast and broccoli
My goodness that seems like a LOT of food, but it's only 1226 calories according to my Fitday. I'll add some sort of marinade to the chicken and maybe some parmesan cheese to the broccoli, but even then, I'd only estimate 1350. Oh, and 111g of protein. I wouldn't normally eat 2 frozen meals in one day, but I was really low on calories, so since I had these 2 meals in my freezer that had less protein than my other meals, I decided to use both to get more calories and protein. Eh, as long as it all works out in the end. Oh, and even with 2 frozen meals, I'm barely above the recommended amount of daily sodium (I'm at just over 2600, and recommended is 2400 or less, so I feel pretty safe with that). And, of course, I'll try for 4 liters of water (which I DID get in yesterday :D ).

I won't eat any Halloween candy either - I deliberately picked stuff I hated to pass out. I bought Milky Ways, 3 Musketeers and Almond Joys, candy bars I loathe. I wouldn't have eaten those on my worst bingy days. This will be my third Halloween without candy :) I am constantly amazed by myself.

10-31-2006, 05:01 PM
i really dont feel like eating today, this cant be good

I wish I was like that. I never met a candy bar I didn't like. :^:

VeggieLover, I think you're the one I have to thank for this. I seem to recall seeing you post about having potatoes with cottage cheese? I had never tried that before, but I had my husband stop by the store and pick up some (fat free) cottage cheese, and tried that dish tonight. It was FABULOUS! One of the best things I've ever eaten, so thank you. :)
