After ending January on such a high I'm not in a great mood today. Yesterday I was tired, didn't plan spectacularly (I knew there would likely be nothing OP besides the sandwiches at lunch provided for me and yet in my tired/huriedness I ran out the door anyway), and later did a little stress snacking after rehearsal. I was contemplating doing a "maintenance week" (not sure what this would entail for me, but maybe just still track and eat about 1800 cal/day?) but I'm afraid it would be too much of a slippery slope, given that the stress and sleep deprivation will continue over the next few nights, and exercise time will be less than normal.

Wed
B - coffee w 1 T h&h, 1 c skim milk, oatmeal (1/3 c oats, small banana, 1/2 oz walnuts, 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder bc I'm so tired of my breakfast not lasting me til lunch)
L - flatout sandwich wrap, ~3 oz lean deli ham, 1.5 oz provolone, handful of chips, chocolate cupcake
D - sausage, bean and kale soup, roasted brussel sprouts
S - small apple, Dr. Kracker cracker w 2 T hm hummus, between 1/3 - 1/2 Toblerone bar (sugar cravings are what I get for eating a cupcake earlier)
E - 4 mile wog with dog
Cals came out to 2000, not horrible, but I don't like how much sugar I ate.

Thursday
B - coffee w 1 T h&h, 1 c skim milk, oatmeal (1/3 c oats, small banana, 1 T dark chocolate pb)
L - 1/2 flatout bread w 2 oz lean ham/turkey, 1 slice cheese, a boatload of carrots & celery w hm hummus, orange
D - hm quesadilla or just melted cheese, depending on your perspective, w 2 ww tortillas and probably 3 oz reduced fat cheddar, frozen veggies
S - lf yogurt, small piece MS mud cake
E - 30 min stairmaster

Megan, you know I am a big proponent of maintenance weeks. Just remember that a maintenance week isn't a "indulge in everything you ever wanted" week.

Thursday:
B - oatmeal, flaxseed, banana, walnuts, skim milk
L - spaghetti w/sauce, veggies, chicken
S - atkins bar, m&m's
D - middle eastern chicken, salad w/lf dressing, israeli couscous, piece of toast w/butter
E - wog this AM (3:30::1:30 run::walk)

Hi Unstoppable, nice to see you on board.

Thursday

B - 2 scrambled eggs, sliced grape tomatoes, salsa

L - salad with red leaf lettuce, green leaf lettuce, shredded carrots, grape tomatoes, red cabbage, leftover steak, low fat ceasar, crispy onions

S - apple

S - I went downstairs to get a cup of coffee (I have one every day with a splash of half/half which I never bother to log because it's what, 40 calories?) The sweet barista knows I really like tall non fat lattes, so he made me one for a price of a coffee. A latte is 90 calories, so I guess I had better log that!

D - hamburger patty, steamed green beans

Glad you've joined us, Unstoppable!

I'm going to try a maintenance week as I've kind of been doing that the last 2 days, lol. If it doesn't work for me, I won't do it again. Terms of my maintenance week will include continued daily weighing & calorie counting (I may drop this in the future if I stay in control of my maintenance week, but not yet - I don't trust myself yet), staying between 1800-2000 cals, trying to make those cals healthy and not all junk, and exercise as normal.

Friday
B - coffee w 1 T h&h, 1 c skim milk, banana eggs (1 sm banana, 2 eggs, cinnamon)
L - 1/2 Flatout wrap w lean ham/turkey, 1 slice cheese, a boatload of carrots & celery w hm hummus
D - kale, white bean, veggie soup, 1 Dr. Kracker cracker
S - small grapefruit, 2 pc. from Toblerone bar, small glass red wine (drank about 3/4 of this), shake 'n bake chicken drumstick (had to eat this during the play I was in, lol)
E - stairmaster 20 min, elliptical 30 min

1830 T - bolognaise sauce, two oatcakes, salad (cue, carrot, yellow pepper, green beans).

Silverbirch,

What are those oatcakes you eat? Are they homemade? If so, can you post the recipe? Thanks.
