Glory, I feel the same way when I pick up the pineapple chobani! I have to remind myself also that 20 cals is not a huge deal, and fat is not actually the enemy. It sounds like you did great with the Vegas meal - enjoyed yourself and had a treat but didn't go overboard.

Amanda, how did your treadmill trial go yesterday?

Jessica said in another thread she was leaning out of the wagon the other day when she had two pieces of cornbread. I feel like I'm running alongside the wagon, one hand on it, hopping on and off as I please. I frustrate myself sometimes. After feeling like I didn't have much healthy stuff planned last week, I over-planned for this week. I made delicious, homemade, healthy stuff. And what did I want? Bread and cereal with milk. (Yes there is a carb theme here... detailed analysis is going on in my head but I won't bore you.) The "uncomplicated" will reign next week. I will eat pita pizzas and frozen veggies. Because pizza sounds really good. Though I've been having trouble sticking to my plan, the scale has blipped down to 157 briefly and back to 158 today.

Friday
B - coffee w 1 T h&h, 2 homemade lowfat pumpkin muffins
Mid-AM snack - 6 oz. lowfat yogurt
L - Chinese Chicken salad
S's as needed - cran orange relish, salt & vinegar roasted chickpeas, hm larabar, tea tea and more tea (Arctic blast overnight makes this really appealing once again)
D - Yippee-Ki-Yay Spicy Southwest Chicken Chowder (hungry girl recipe already in the slow cooker), homemade whole wheat bread, big salad bc a friend just gave me some home grown lettuce

B oatmeal with pnb, bacon
L scrambled eggs, zucchini, tortilla
D TBD
E TBD I'm very behind on some things so I need to catch up! See y'all later.

I'll let you know how it turns out! It already has two pluses in my mind - healthy, easy.

Chicken chowder DOES sound tasty!

Today's plan:

B - 1 egg, 3 egg whites, cheddar, spinach, 1/2 toasted bagel thin, kiwi (hmmm, I sense a trend!)
S - Greek yogurt w/ berries
L - Leftover tostadas
S - Protein Shake
D - Split appetizer (a grilled hot link with a sauteed cabbage, really good!) 4 ways with friends, 1/2 cup spinach salad, approximately 1.5 cups of the best beef stroganoff I've had in recent memory, and 1 cup sauteed broccoli.
S - Small brownie, still w/ friends


E - 75 min treadmill (yesterday's trial was a tentative success! I do have to take a small break after 45 min to put the foot up or it gets swollen, but if I give it 15 min, it's just fine), 60 min strength training (I have to tweak my program now since my midwife (not OUR Midwife!) says no more weights over my head, lest I topple over under the weight of the belly.

L - Subway - 6" BLT on wheat, baked lays (450 calories)

S - tall non fat latte - 100 calories

S - 3 clementines - 100 calories

D - we have a new restaurant near the house and they have a "lite" menu with a lot of great choices under 500 calories. Will report back!
Went to Cool Hand Luke's Wild West Grill. I can't find the exact menu online, but it had a 500 calorie section. I got char fired tri tip and steamed green beans. It came with a garden salad (got low calorie caesar on the side). Did not eat the warm sour dough bread served as a starter but it was tough because I was STARVING. Very tasty, would go again.

The flavor was good, though not the most complex/rich tasting (what did I expect - very little fat involved!) It was a little spicier than I expected from the chipotle peppers. BF really liked this. I might make it again, but would probably reduce the amount of peppers/adobo sauce, and add a few more veggies (maybe a green bell pepper in addition to the red).

Jessica, salmon chowder sounds good too!

If you read my post in the weekly chat thread, I'm not quite sure where the weekend went. I didn't write any food down, and I'm not going to try to re-capture it here, rather work on writing things down despite being busy in the future. I did go out to dinner Saturday night and ate a pasta dish with cream sauce () - obviously not on plan - but ate very lightly the rest of the day. The rest of the weekend was pretty normal/OP eating.

Tuesday
B - egg sandwich - light English muffin, 1 large egg + 1 egg white, ~1/2 c asparagus chopped up in the egg, coffee w 1 T h&h
S - orange and strawberries
L - lean deli ham + 1 slice provolone on 1 piece whole wheat bread, ~1 c. asparagus, 1 slice chocolate cake w chocolate frosting (office birthday)
D - pita pizza on ww pita, part skim mozzarella, + salad w 2 T light dressing
E - 45 minutes stairmaster, varying intensities, ~3-3.5 mile wog w the dog this afternoon

Glory, I just got some cherries on sale too! Delicious! I also get really excited at this milestone. I just bought my first FL strawberries of the year, too.
