Better today

Sunday

B - 0% black cherry chobani yogurt

L - went to Red Robin. Wanted a salad, but was hard to get a healthy salad. Got the Grilled Chicken Caprese. Menu said 660 calories but I got it with no cheese, dressing/cream on side and didn't eat the bread. Feel confident I shaved 200 calories (it was basically a pile of lettuce, a grilled chicken breast, a few pepperoni strips and dressing on the side)

S - tall non fat latte

D - chipotle - chicken bol no beans, double pico, extra lettuce, 1/2 side of guac

1300 for the day, is my estimate

Glory, I also have so much trouble in social situations, particularly with my foodie friends. I can say no to fast food without problem, but when there a tapas plate of melty manchego cheese with blanched almonds and reduced balsamic vinegar? I'm done for!

It feels so nice not to have to make up for an off plan weekend! I was super munchy (TOM related I'm sure), but kept snacking fairly minimal.

Sunday catch-up
B - 0.5 c oatmeal w 0.25 c blueberries, small banana, 1 T. ground flax seed, cinnamon, 1 c. skim milk, coffee w 1 T h&h
L - sandwich thin w 2 oz lean deli ham, 1 slice provolone, 1/6 an avocado, lettuce, 1.5 c roasted butternut squash w 0.5 T. canola oil
D - 1.5 c chili, salad, 1 T. light dressing
S's - small grapefruit, 1 slice homemade ww bread w 1 T. Smart Balance light, chocolate vitatop
E - wogged 4+ miles w the dog
Cal: 1633 for the day

Monday plan:
B - 0.33 c oatmeal w 0.25 c blueberries, 0.5 small banana, .5 oz walnuts, cinnamon, 1 c. skim milk, coffee w 1 T h&h
L - 1 slice homemade ww bread w 2 oz lean deli ham, 1 slice provolone, 1/6 an avocado, lettuce, kale w 1 t EVOO and vinegar, salt
D - 1.5 c chili, roasted sweet & white potatoes with canola oil*
S's - tangelo, 6 oz light yogurt, homemade larabar
E - 20 min walk at lunchtime, 50 minutes stairmaster, 3 mile walk with the dog
*Maybe not the best idea? I think here is where my daily calories got away with me and ended up at 1818 (closer to maintaining range than losing). I kept eating a bite more, waiting for BF to come home, finally put them away. I had to fight myself not to eat more. I was genuinely hungry!

S - three hawaiian rolls, focaccia bread, homemade burger w/pepper jack, ketchup
D - breaded turkey on pasta w/veggies, glass of wine
S - tapioca pudding (made w/skim milk)
E - 75 min yoga

Sunday:
B - oatmeal, apple, walnuts, flaxseed
L (late) - bbq pork, twice baked potato
S - focaccia, piece of cheddar
D - beef stew, beer
E - 5 mile nearly 2-hour walk with the dog

Monday:
B - oatmeal, flaxseed, apple, walnuts, skim milk

Saturday - Did fairly well considering that there were a lot of social events! Although I did have two small dinners, instead of one large dinner, because I got hungry.

B - 1/2 serving whole wheat buttermilk pancakes, 2 sl uncured bacon, 1 scrambled egg
L - Trader Joes Chinese Chicken slaw. I'm obsessed. Slice of sourdough toast on the side.
S - 1 serving pretzel thins
D - 3 oz roast beef, 1 roast potato, 1/2 cup carrots
S - 2/3 cup frozen yogurt
D2 - 1/2 cup brown rice, 3/4 cup beef with broccoli (leftovers)

E - was sort of running around all day, but nothing formal

Sunday -
B - "Egg in Toast" - piece of toast w/ 1 egg cooked in hole cut out of the bread, 2 sl uncured bacon.
L - TJs Chinese Chicken Slaw again. Mmmmm.
The rest of this is watching the football game over several hours - not great, but not a catastrophe:
*1 cup of veggies w/ maybe 1 tbsp light ranch dip
*3 baked wontons filled with cream cheese (I made these - super good for Chinese appetizer-type cravings and fairly low cal - just take a wonton wrapper, put into a mini muffin tin, and fill with a mixture of light cream cheese, scallion, garlic, ginger, pepper, and a few drops of sesame oil - bake at 375 until the wonton edges are crispy).
*2 slices of homemade pizza - whole wheat crust, bbq sauce, grilled chicken, red onion, pineapple, light mozzarella.
*2-bite macaroon

Came home and had a sugar free pudding cup.

E - Housecleaning marathon before the game.

Monday -

B - Egg in toast, sliced kiwi and berries
S - Nonfat greek yogurt w/ blueberries, 1/4 cup whole grain cereal
L - No leftovers from yesterday! Tentatively planning some Beef and Barley soup and an apple.
S - Pear w/ sliced cheddar
S - Protein shake
D - Pork loin braised in tomato sauce, polenta, broccoli
S - NSA Ice Cream

E - 75 min incline trainer, prenatal yoga (I have a 25 min and a 45 min - I will do whichever ends up fitting better in between meetings). No dog walk today, since it's raining.

Hmm, I've never heard of a pinata apple. I'll have to look! Amanda your baked wontons sound good, too. I'll have to keep them in mind for the next party I attend, or maybe my next sushi night. Would they be a good sushi appetizer?

I was really hungry last night, not sure if it was triggered by the potatoes or what... but I'll have a large salad tonight instead of potatoes. The scale was happy though!

Tuesday plan
B - 0.33 c oatmeal w 0.5 c blueberries, 0.5 small banana, 1 lg egg, cinnamon, 1 c. skim milk, coffee w 1 T h&h
L - 1 slice homemade ww bread w 2 oz tuna, 1/4 an avocado, pickle & lettuce, kale w 1 t EVOO and vinegar, salt
D - 1.5 c chili, large salad w light dressing
S's - small grapefruit, 6 oz light yogurt, homemade larabar
E - wogged the dog ~4 miles
Came home from rehearsal and ate: 2 slices hm ww bread, one w ~1 T. butter, one w ~ 2 T dark chocolate pb, and a chocolate vitatop

2323 cals for the day. I think it was a combo of being a little too close to the edge of hunger a few days, then a frustrating and stressful rehearsal. I had trouble sleeping and anxiety all night after I ate this, not about the food, but about the play.

The pinata apple was AMAZING. Easily jumped into my top 3 apples. I'm sorry now I only bought one! I'm pretty picky about apples, so I wasn't sure I'd like them.

I'll definitely look for the pinata apple!

I'm posting Wednesday... but it wasn't pretty. As I edited on Tuesday's plan, fell off the wagon Tuesday night late. It didn't help that yesterday I had to go to the city for work training, we'd already planned to get sushi for lunch, I was still stressed out, and tired. A diet-killing combo for me.

I need to remind myself to eat a little more of the most satiating food I can find (raw nuts would be good) when I get to that place. I'm hoping that at least since I have eaten more over the past 1.5 days, it will take the edge off the gnawing hunger I felt all week as I go back to plan.

Wed:
B - light English muffin, 2 lg eggs, coffee w 1 T h&h
S - small apple
L - spicy tuna roll, bang bang mango roll
D - large orange, light English muffin w 3 T dark chocolate pb
S - 94% ff microwave popcorn bag... to which I added about 2 T butter
E - 1 mile walk with dog

Thursday: (back on plan! I'm not giving up my losses so far this month that I was so excited about!)
B - 1/3 c oatmeal, 1 T. ground flax, cinnamon, 1/2 small banana, 1/2 c blueberries, 1 c skim milk, coffee w 1 T h&h
L - 1 slice homemade ww bread w 2 oz tuna, 1/4 an avocado, pickle & lettuce, salad w 1 T light dressing
D - 1.5 c chili
S's - orange, small apple, 5.3 oz ff Greek yogurt, homemade larabar, tea
E - 40 minutes stairmaster

Hey, is this recipe posted some where? I've got some spicy Italian venison sausage in the freezer I need to use up, and kale in the garden, and Amanda's recipes are always delicious! I want to try it too!

It is, but here you go (I forgot, the original recipe calls for spinach! I've always used kale)

White Bean and Sausage Soup - Makes 4 Servings

-2 cups small white beans, dried (calories for this ingredient are from my package of beans, not from the FitDay values - my package says 70 calories and 14 grams of fiber per 1/4 cup dry)
-water
-6 cups canned or boxed chicken broth
-3 Aidells turkey/chicken sausages (artichoke and garlic are really tasty in this, but they have a TON of varieties, most of which would work well. Pick a variety with around 150 calories per sausage).
-1 large onion, diced
-2 cups diced carrot
-1.5 cups diced celery
-6 cloves garlic, minced
-cooking spray
-3 bay leaves
-2 sprigs rosemary, fresh or dried
-salt and pepper to taste
-Pinch of chili powder
-Pinch of cayenne pepper
-4 cups raw spinach

In a large pot, cover the white beans with enough water to cover by 2 inches. Soak all day or overnight. Drain.

Add chicken broth to large pot, and add soaked white beans, along with the rosemary and bay leaf. Heat to a boil, then lower heat, cover, and simmer 1.5 hours or until very tender.

Meanwhile, when the beans have about half an hour left to cook, dice the sausage into small cubes. Heat a cooking-spray coated skillet over medium high heat and cook the sausage until the edges are crispy and the sausage is heated through. Add the sausage to the pot with beans and chicken broth.

Spray the skillet again with cooking spray, still on medium high heat. Add the minced garlic, carrot, onion, and celery. Saute until just barely tender. Add to soup pot.

Add salt, pepper, cayenne, and chili powder to taste. Simmer another 15 minutes, or until flavors have melded. Just before serving, drop in the 4 cups of raw spinach and wilt into the soup.

The sausage I have is bulk sausage, but I'm sure I could just saute it so it's cooked and make it work. I've got the beans already, too. Thanks Glory! (And Amanda!)
