Ok...to recap, here's what on the menu (pre-cooked meals) for eating in rotation this coming week (and hopefully the next)

1) Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin over brown rice, brocolli - 350 cals.
2) Pot Roast, green beans - 350 cals.
3) Mexican PICADILLO & Agave Glazed Baked Plantains - 435 cals.
4) Sesame Chicken over rice sticks, green bean almondine - 400 cals.
5) Jamaican Curried Chicken Thighs over spicey Carribbean black eyed peas and
Plantain, steamed spinach - 447 cals.
6) Shepherd's Pie, peas & carrots - 354 cals.
7) Chili, corn & green beans, spinach or peas & carrots - 406 cals.

Wow...didn't realize I did that much cooking. I need to ease up off the cooking for the next two weeks and enjoy my spoils!

Thanks Jen!!

Ok...I did a "sneak peak" this morning on the scale (expecting to gain PMS lb or 2) and I've actually lost a lb (down to 170). That said...I could ACTUALLY break the 170's this week and enter into the world of the 160's...YEAHHHH!!! I would soooo love this, especially as I know I'm about to blow any day now..haha!

Breakfast - Pumpkin Raisin Muffin - 2 Jimmy Dean Turkey sausage links - 229 cals.
Snack - NONE
Lunch - Shepherd's Pie, peas & carrots - 354 cals.
Snack - Atkins Protein Bar - 240 cals.
Dinner - Pot Roast, green beans - 350 cals.
Snack - Pumpkin Raisin Muffin - 149 cals.
Snack - Large Navel Orange - 100 cals.
Snack - Activia Light Yogart - 70 cals.

Total Calories: 1,492 cals.

EXERCISE:

NO EXERCISE TODAY***feeling really run down, been out all day walking, shopping with my DD, and PMS is really kickin my butt! I promised myself I'd get in 4 days of running this week, so I still have tomorrow. My plan is to run at least 4 miles tomorrow. Actually, it's a certainty that I will run tomorrow.

I know I promised myself "NO MORE COOKING" for a while, but I have become compelled to make one last dish. Homemade slow cooked (crockpot) chili. I've got a defrosted pound of extra lean ground beef in the frig, soooo...gotta do something with it! Gonna go pick up a pound of ground turkey and viola...gonna make some killer low sodium/low fat healthy, yet butt-kickin chili!!! Pics to come...yeahhhh!!!

Don't you love when you get a good SNEAK PEAK... I cant wait until TOM is over for you because ------------YOU WILL BE IN THE 160'S!!!!

SIMPLY AWESOME!!!

The beauty of it all is: You are doing this the way you WANT to and you are not feeling deprived, making good foods, and the weight is melting off of you! God, I love it!

Let's keep this thing going!

Thanks DediKayted!!!

Uggghhh...feeling lousy today (TOM around the corner knocking on my front door..haha!)...Just LOUSY!!! I don't care though...I'm going to run like the wind today...I feel my body NEEDS to...to just run until I can't run no more!

Anyhoot, changed my oatmeal a bit...added 1 tbsp of flax meal to it. I've been noticing that when I eat oats, I'm hungry again shortly thereafter, so maybe the added fiber will help me stay full longer. We'll see...I gave it a try this morning.

Breakfast - 1/2 cup Oatmeal, 1/4 cup raisins, 1 tbsp flax meal, 1 tsp brown sugar, 2 tsp splenda, pinch of sea salt, cinnamon to taste - 330 cals.
Snack - Pumpkin Raisin Muffin - 149 cals.
Lunch - Jamaican Curried Chicken Thighs over spicey Carribbean black eyed peas and Plantain, steamed spinach - 447 cals.
Snack - Weight Watchers chocolate crunch ice cream pop - 130 cals.
Dinner - Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin over brown rice, brocolli - 350 cals.
Snack - Activia Light Yogart - 70 cals.
Snack - 10 oz fresh pineapple - 140 cals.

Total Calories: 1,616 cals.

EXERCISE:

Running - 4.1 miles (not too hard, could have gone further, but back was aching due to SEVERE PMS!!! ughhhh!)

Haven't run yet, gonna go later on tonight. Finally got the chili on the stove cooking. Smells and tastes great so far!

*EDIT* - Woo Hoooooo...I made it...4 days running this week...whew...really wasn't feeling any energy this week, but I'm so happy I pushed through...I'll remember this next time I feel like just marrying the couch!

Ok...well...here's the Chili pics!!! Original recipe called for 2 cans of kidney beans and over 1,100 mgs of SODIUM per SERVING!!!! That's ridiculous...I reduced tons of sodium in just using dried beans soaked overnight! Watch your sodium people...you may be taking in waaaay more than you know!

I think I'm starting to see a pattern here with my calories...not intentionally, but yet, still some sort of pattern:

12/27 - 1,475 cals (Monday)
12/28 - 1,765 (high day)
12/29 - 1,450
12/30 - 1,298
12/31 - 1,551
1/1/11 - 1,508
1/2/11 - 1,376

1/3/11 - 1,519 (Monday)
1/4/11 - 1,523
1/5/11 - 1,463
1/6/11 - 1,478
1/7/11 - 1,659 (high day)
1/8/11 - 1,498
1/9/11 - 1,597

1/10/11 - 1,421 (Monday
1/11/11 - 1,729 (high day)
1/12/11 - 1,428
1/13/11 - 1,403
1/14/11 - 1,486
1/15/11 - 1,492
1/16/11 - 1,616

Spicy Chili Nutrition Facts:
Makes 14 Servings
Cals. - 261
Fat - 5.6g
Prot. - 23.3g
Sodium - 404mg
Fiber - 9.0g

So you can see this dish PACKS a great big ol BANG for the buck!

I'm really happily surprised at myself that I didn't totally go off yesterday on some kind of MAD WOMAN BINGE!!! I have not been so hungry (bottomless pit style hungry) in quite a long while. Those pumpkin muffins were a life safer (although I ate a few too many of them), as they are low in calories and high in fiber and other quality nutrients!

Breakfast - Pumpkin Raisin Muffin, 2 Jimmy Dean Turkey Sausage - 229 cals.
Snack - Atkins Protein Bar - 240 cals.
Lunch - Homemade Chili over brown rice, corn & green beans - 406 cals.
Snack - Pumpkin Raisin Muffin - 139 cals. (new batch)
Dinner - Mexican Picadillo, agave glazed plantains - 435 cals.
Snack - Small orange - 45 cals.

Total Calories: 1,494 cals.

EXERCISE:

Running - 4.4 miles (rough start, but got better after 3rd mile!)
2 sets of 3 pull ups, 2 sets of 4 pull ups

Just finished baking another delishous batch of Pumpkin Raisin Muffins!!! Didn't overfill them this time and got the correct 16 muffins out of the mix..yeahhhh meeee..lol!!! 139 calories!

Hey... just dropping by on this wonderful REST day....


I gotta remember to get those darn paper cupcake liner thingies so I can make my muffins as well. I do have a muffin top pan so I guess that would work as well.

I am glad that you made it through your hungry day! OMG... I know how those days are! Just seems like your stomach cant get full.. so strange! But you are pushing right through, as you have been already doing ...and very well I might add!

Well... I am off to clean and try to think of some new things that I may be interested in eating for the next couple of days

Joyful you are doing awesome with your weight loss! Have you been able to stay in the same calorie range you started with during your weight loss, or have you had do adjust it and drop it lower in order to keep losing weight? I've just been counting calories for three weeks now, and I like to see how everyone has been able to do it. Plus, you are an inch taller than me, so I like to try to compare my calories to those who are right around the same height.

Hi Emme!!!

Thanks Yes, I haven't had to reduce my calories since day 1. That said, If you look at my post above, you'll see that I have a "high" calorie day each week. During that day I have a "cheat" meal. My cheat meal is usually Jamaican Food (greasy, but healthy) The meal is usually about 800 cals. and then I go right back to my low fat/low calorie/low sodium way of eating. I think that's why I've never stalled.

BTW, I've been having a cheat meal once weekly or bi-weekly since day 1 of my journey (September 6, 2010). I used to be on a frozen meal delivery plan (Bistro MD), and they leave out one meal each week and tell you to eat whatever you want, in one setting, in one meal. That's where I got the idea, but turns out...it does work!
