Amanda, glad all is well, and glad you could get some cardio in too!

Midwife, is it a good sore? I love the good sore feeling.

My calories were 1370 yesterday. What? Who did that? I had mentally tallied earlier in the day and thought I would be around 1500 calories, thus should not have the chocolate vitatop I wanted but wasn't really hungry for. When I realized I miscalculated it was closer to bed time... oh well.

Thursday plan:
B - egg sandwich - light English muffin, 1 large egg, coffee w 1 T h&h
S - small grapefruit
L - lean deli ham + 1 slice provolone + 1/6 avocado on ww sandwich thin, large salad w 1T light dressing
S's as needed - 6 oz lowfat yogurt, 1 c. cherries
D - Chicken stew, baked cauliflower w bread crumb & parmesan topping, dessert - dark chocolate vitatop
E - 50 minutes stairmaster

A good sore? Perhaps! I felt like an old lady hobbling around the hospital last night. I did get in a 2 mile wog yesterday. I think it helped!

Today:
eggs, sausage, potatoes, red chili, fruit salad (and then a loooonnnnnggggg nap!)
then if I need to eat again before dinner, the last bit of turkey meatloaf and carrots
e: ? who knows? My goal is simply to be upright and functional today when I need to be.

Friday

B - Chobani 0% yogurt

L - leafy greens, grape tomatoes, red cabbage, carrots, leftover steak, crispy onions, fat free caesar dressing

S - goodly pile of cherries

D- was craving a burger so we stopped at Farmer Boys on the way home. I love how they have calorie counts for everything. I got the veggie burger (no thousand island, no cheese, with avocado - 516 calories) and a side of chicken tortilla soup (110 calories). I ate half the burger normally, then picked out the filling and left half the bun on the plate. I probably ate around 500 calories, total.

Exercise - burned 360 calories, 3.25 miles...every time I tried to run, my iphone went bouncing around (not my normal machine!) so I concentrated on lots of 8.0 and 10.0 inclines. Sweated up a storm so feel it was successful!

Glory, I've been meaning to ask you about your 'crispy onions'. What are they? Are they raw? Are they red or white? Strong or mild? Big or small? You sometimes talk about 'crunch' so is that what they're doing here?

Thanks!

Hey Silverbirch - they are the most decadent part of my salad! I measure out about 2tbs a day (I estimate 50 calories). Since I eat salad every day, I really need a little something that jazzes it up.

Fresh Gourmet Crispy Onions

The company also makes Crispy Red Peppers and Crispy Jalapenos (which I have tried and loved, but they were too spicy for everyday). They are also the company that makes the tortilla strips I use for taco salads/BBQ salads.

Thanks, Glory. I understand now! I also eat a big salad every day so I quite understand the need for a bit of pzazz or simply something different. I've tried different types of crackers (oatcakes, rye, crispbread) or a small carb something left over from breakfast. I've also tried going without but then I peg out in the late afternoon, even with a snack.

I do like cherries. There were wonderful cherry orchards when I was growing up but they've been grubbed up now. So sad.

Bummed about last night, I feel like I wiped out a whole week of good eating/working out.

B - Chobani 0% cherry yogurt

L - L&L bbq - healthy plate, got the BBQ chicken ate half, did not eat any rice, ate the salad (the miso dressing was supposed to come on the side but didn't, it was insanely delicious)

D - Met some friends at Cafe Bleu, they were celebrating and I apparently lost my mind. The damage: 2 glasses of wine, split 2 cheese plates (we had small bites of 10 different cheeses, crostini with honeycomb and dried fruit), had a piece of brie en crout, had 2.5 canapes, got the Coq au vin for dinner but really didn't each much - small bit of chicken, one bite of the accompanying gratin, mushrooms, onions), had a scallop and a piece of risotto cake from someone else's plate), split a apple dessert five ways, had a cup of coffee with cream/sugar.

Sheesh. Social events, great food is my biggest weakness.

Just gotta back on track today.
