Barely made it under 1400 yesterday.

Tuesday:
B - oatmeal, flaxseed, apple, walnuts, skim milk
L - leftover potato soup, atkins bar
S - some Indian sweets my coworker brought in to celebrate his daughter's birth
D - tofu curry on rice
E - going to "toning" class at lunch today

I ended up making the potato soup last night. Tonight will be tofu, then tomorrow the salmon chowder I think (can't have soup too many meals in a row!).

S - cherries (first cherries on sale this year! yay!!)

D - small steak, huge pile of roasted brussel sprouts

Exercise - 360 calories burned, 3.4 miles (walk, jog, incline)

I love this thread! I love both the variety and the sameness (does that make sense).
DD and I tried the Chobani pineapple this week. Yum!!

I don't really remember this weekend's food. Nothing too terrible. Last week's net loss was 3#.

Today:
protein shake, apple, pnb
sweet potato, eggs, salsa, spinach
turkey meatloaf, roasted carrots and potatoes

exercise: finally made it to the gym. First weight-lifting in many many months

The only thing new ANY day on my plan is dinner. Otherwise, it's all the same as the day before, right down to dinner leftovers for lunch.

Today -

B - 1 egg, 3 egg whites, spinach, and cheddar, 1 sliced kiwi, 1/2 toasted bagel thin
S - Greek yogurt w/ blueberries
L - Pot roast, small potato, carrots and celery, side of cooked cabbage. Oh my goodness, it was one of the best pot roasts I've ever cooked. Normally, pot roast gravy is sort of fatty and icky to me. Last night, we skimmed off all the fat from the liquid, then pureed all the veggies from the pot up with the liquid. The gravy got REALLY thick and rich, but instead of using fat and flour to thicken, it was just carrots, celery, and onion! I don't think I'll ever make a pot roast without doing this again.
S - Protein Shake
S - Asian pear, sliced cheddar
D - Chicken tenders breaded in panko, roasted cauliflower, kale.
S - NSA Ice Cream

E - 75 min incline trainer, 45 min strength training, and hopefully a 45 min dog walk.

Great job Midwife!

Weighed in at 136.2 this morning. Lowest so far this month, but 1/1 was 136.6 so not by much. 12/1 was 134. I need to get back there. I'm starting to feel calorie counting fatigue already though, so I'm thinking since next week I have a business trip next week will be a maintain week.

Wednesday:
B - oatmeal, flaxseed, apple, walnuts, skim milk
L - leftover mushroom stew, atkins bar
S - M&M's, leftover indian sweets
D - pasta w/homemade sauce of: onion, tomato, garlic, green beans, peas, kidney beans, splash of wine; parmesan, glass of red wine
E - 25 min wog this AM (3:2 run:walk for 20), 45 min yoga class at lunchtime

Also, Amanda, sounds like my days are pretty similar to yours. I eat the same thing for breakfast every day, lunch is always leftovers from dinner, and dinner is the only thing that changes.

Thanks! Ultrasound came back normal today, so whatever that blip was last time, it seems to have resolved itself. And I have enough time to get a little cardio in!
