Wednesday is when the strep hit, so I had yogurt and tea for dinner. Ended with about 1065 calories. Thursday I had chicken soup and tea for lunch and more yogurt for dinner. 565 calories. Today I've had tomato soup, green tea. Makes it easy to plan when you don't want to eat.

Shannon The only positive to being sick is getting on the scale after and seeing a lower number most of the time. Not worth it, though.

Breakfast: 1/2 c sweet potato, 1 salmon burger, 1/2 grapefruit (300 cal)

Lunch: homemade vegetable soup, 1/2 c pumpkin (200 cal)

Snack: protein shake with strawberries and 1/2 banana, soy milk (300 cal)

Dinner: chicken stir fry, 1 glass wine (400 cal?)

2 Hershey's dark chocolate kisses (42)

Total: 1300 or so?

Exercise: 15 min. HIIT, 50 minutes weight lifting circuit

Hi everyone... Sorry to hear that you're not feeling well Shannon... I felt like crap yesterday and thought "Oh, NO... Here we go..." so I roasted a chicken, made some chicken soup and chicken salad with the leftovers... and did my best to stay in bed... And so far so good...

Needless to say I haven't been meal planning or running, but I think if I take it easy for another day or two hopefully, I'll be ready to get back on track...

Ended yesterday with more soup and some yogurt. So far today yogurt, banana, soup and crackers, more soup and a chocolate covered cherry. DH wants to get more calories into me today if I'm up for it. I think it's helping.

No evening snack last night, smaller pork chop than I estimated and added some potatoes. 1055 calories for the day, need to do a little better today.

Breakfast: greek yogurt w/ fruit, coffee
Snack: none
Lunch: plain grilled chicken with leftover brussels sprouts and crushed pepper
Snack: protein shake I think?
Dinner: crockpot veggie soup made with suggestions from some of you guys on my FB page , crackers or bread, glass of wine
Snack: PB graham cracker?
Cals: 1245 with the graham cracker, may change if I exclude it and go for the protein drink

Yesterday came in at 1194 calories. My crockpot vegetable soup was lovely.

Thursday:
Breakfast: greek yogurt w/ pomegranate, blueberries, dark chocolate chips and honey; coffee w/ 1 tsp sugar and 1 tbsp creamer
Snack: grapefruit
Lunch: veggie soup with a piece of grilled chicken
Snack: maybe a string cheese
Dinner: spaghetti with marinara sauce
Snack: don't know yet, maybe more grapefruit
Cals: 1141 without evening snack, targeting 1350 for the day.
