Went a little off the rails (200-300 calories) on healthy stuff yesterday..tends to happen when I do heavy lifting and am really sore, I wonder if my body just needs the extra nutrition for repair.

Plan for today:

B - WW LC tortilla, 1 tbsp natural pb, sliced apple
S - Orange
L - Leftover spaghetti squash w/ ground beef, cheese
S - Yogurt w/ berries
S - Popcorn
D - Grilled chicken skewer, butternut squash soup, sauteed cabbage
S - NSA Ice cream

E - 40 min dog walk this morning, 75 min cardio, possibly more dog walk tonight.

Ended up skipping morning snack yesterday, which left me low, so subbed out dessert for frozen yogurt. Today's plan:

B - Sandwich thin w/ pizza sauce, mozzarella, and broccoli
S - Orange
L - Chicken skewer, cabbage, butternut squash soup
S - Protein shake
S - Popcorn
D - Chicken and broccoli stirfry, brown rice
S - Experiment with some sort of low-cal mousse in phyllo cups...its still only a loosely formed idea.

E - 60 min incline trainer, 60 min strength, 60-80 min dogwalking, cleaning mania

Yesterday came in about 200 calories over target - I was on track all day until I fell into a pot of plain lasagna noodles while I was setting up a pan to cook tonight. Felt very much like the old me who used to make and eat an entire box of plain noodles at a shot...

Yesterday:
B: kashi go lean w/ berries, banana & skim, coffee
L: Moe's salad bowl w/ chicken & black beans, some chips
S: Kashi peanut granola bar
D: ground turkey tacos
S: 1.5 servings of plain lasagna noodles
E: LB workout in the morning, running in the afternoon

Today:
B: kashi go lean w/ berries, banana & skim, coffee
S: berries, string cheese
L: grilled chicken salad
S: chocolate cheerios
D: lasagna-ish baked dish - noodles, lowest calorie natural red sauce I could find, 2% italian cheese, ground turkey with spices. App 296 calories per serving. Will probably make some broccoli for myself to go with it.
S: depends on how much I end up eating at dinner
E: planning a UB workout when I get home if time allows, otherwise will experiment with using the stationary bike after DSS goes to bed

So at my lunch meeting today they gave us pizza, but it was an off-brand and the kind that's cut into squares. Does anyone know how to calorie count it? I had two 3x3 squares and one that was about 1/3 that size. I thought it was probably equivalent to about two regular slices but I have no idea.

Nevermind, I just figured out that I should use basic math. If a 12" diameter pizza has 1122 calories, then a 3x3 square piece has 90, because the area of the 12" diameter pizza is 113.04 square inches, and the square piece is 9 square inches. Duh.

It appears some of my broccoli has gone bad - odd, because it normally lasts this long no problem. Shifting dinner plan to replace the stirfry with a homemade pizza on very thin, whole wheat homemade crust, light cheese, with broccoli, chicken, and olives - I'll likely throw a salad together as well.

Amanda - do you make pizza crust in your breadmaker or by hand? Do you have a crust recipe you could share? How is the shoulder after you lifting this week?

I make my crust by hand, sort of...I knead it in a kitchenaid stand mixer with the dough hook.

Used this one, subbed agave for the honey and wheat bran for the flax:

Shoulder hurts. I am coming to accept that the shoulder may always hurt, just sometimes more than others. It's no better or worse after lifting, so I may as well lift.

S - Small slice ice cream cake

E - Dogwalking - at least 40-50 min, poss more if I need to escape later
