Weight Loss Support - Planning for Monday, Dec. 4
12-03-2006, 02:55 PM
Getting a very early start while I'm on a roll, here. It's still a little before 2pm Sunday here right now, but I've stuck to plan so far and don't see any reason to stray this afternoon/evening. I even just got back from a (cold!) 30-minute walk, and I'm working on my third liter of water.
As for tomorrow:
smoothie - skim milk, small banana, vanilla protein powder
salad - romaine lettuce, mango, chicken, almond slivers, diced tomato, Trader Joe's sesame soy ginger vinaigrette dressing
leftovers from last week - ww couscous, chicken, veggies, black beans, cheddar cheese
chicken cooked w/medium pineapple salsa and brown riceThat comes to about 1575 calories and 143g protein :o :) I'll also have my usual 3+ liters of water and get up to do 30 minutes of a WATP DVD.

Great job sticking to your plan this weekend, jillybean! You go girl! :carrot: :carrot:
I did great at my meeting on Friday, didn't end up eating anything because 1) I was speaking and I've found that it's never a good idea to eat before I present (or I spend the entire presentation wondering if I have food stuck in my teeth--it's really distracting) and 2) I started by getting myself a beverage and it's too complicated to try to hold both a beverage and a plate of food at the same time (this turned out to be a really effective strategy, I'll have to use it in the future ;) ).
Also went for a 4-mile run today! It was a nice, crisp fall day and I thought it would make a nice change of pace from the drudgery of cardio at the gym. I did all 4 miles without stopping or walking! A year ago, I couldn't do two miles without stopping and walking at least three times--4 miles, even with walking, was totally out of the question! So I'm feeling pretty good about myself right now! :carrot: :carrot:
Monday is going to be a little screwy because I have a noon appointment (which totally throws off my eating schedule--big problem! :mad: ) and I'm meeting friends for dinner, so I'll probably be over my calorie limit (good thing I did that 4-mile run). Here is the current plan:
B - Go Lean cereal with soy milk and raspberries (can't believe the farmers' market still has raspberries! yay! :D )
S - decaf coffee with splenda and milk
L - Lean Cuisine Panini
S - blueberry fiber cake, possibly some fruit
S - yogurt and raspberries
D - not sure, meeting friends for dinner and haven't picked a restaurant yet! Also going to get pedicures, though--I desperately need one, so I'm super excited!
Exercise: With trainer (yay!)

Wow, 4-mile run...you go! I doubt I could even do a continuous 1/4-mile run right now :p
Just to check in, I did stick to my plan perfectly yesterday. We even stopped at Arby's after the concert because Jeff hadn't eaten yet, and I didn't so much as snatch a single french fry. I came home and had my yogurt instead and stuck to my plan perfectly, 3 liters of water and all. I knew I was retaining some water, and having a great weekend helped a LOT--on Friday morning, I was at exactly 300 pounds, but this morning, I'm at 294 :D
I have completed my WATP for today, so after a few more posts here, I'll go make my breakfast smoothie and get dinner for tonight thrown into the crock pot!
