Any interest in a food accountability thread? We used to do one combined with exercise, but the 'maintainers moving...' threads are fantastic.

I'll put in my day today and see if anyone wants to join.

Breakfast - greek yogurt w/ honey and pomegranate, coffee w/ 1 tsp sugar & 1 tbsp creamer
Lunch - smoothie (yogurt, protein powder, banana, frozen fruit)
Snack - string cheese, orange
Dinner - broiled cod, corn on the cob, steamed broccoli and carrots, glass of wine
Snack - 50 calories of peppermint bark
Total: 1399

Exercise - 20 min bodyweight circuit, 30 min elliprical

Monday came in fabulous at 1399, 50 calories under my initial target.

Today is going to be a challenge. DH and I have a movie date, so I'm likely eating popcorn for dinner. I've talked to our theater manager and they use no trans fat canola oil and use very little, we never get butter. Salt will be high but the rest should be manageable.

Tuesday Jan 8:
Breakfast - greek yogurt w/ honey and pomegranate, 1/2 nonfat caramel machiatto
Lunch - grilled chicken breast & grapefruit tossed in red pepper
Snack - string cheese
Dinner - popcorn
Snack - depends. May have alight dinner after the movie, may not.
Projected total w/o dinner after: 1055. This allows me some wiggle room for a snack.

Exercise - 45 mins elliptical, 10 min stretching, 5 min shoulder flexibility exercise already done!

Hi everyone... Hope everyone's day is going well... I'm busy working from home today... So today is all about CONVENIENCE... So I'm ordering in...

Breakfast : No Breakfast... IF'ing...

Lunch : Take out assorted sashimi and seaweed salad with avocado... took the stairs instead of the elevator and ran out to get it myself, so 20mins of brisk walking and some much needed fresh air!

Snacks : Protein smoothie with some fruit and almond butter... Maybe a handful of nuts and probably another piece of fruit at some point during my eating window...

Dinner : Really big dinner salad (not sure what I'll have for the lean protein on it) from one of my friends restaurants very close by... the chef and I are on a first name basis, so he knows what I like...

Exercise : 30 min speed workout on the treadmill at home... 4 miles total... And I'll do a little yoga on my own and lift a few dumbells... just because they've been collected dust lately... lol...

Treat : I have some really good chocolate from Belgium that has been hidden away that has been calling my name since before the holidays... So I'll probably answer that call at some point later...

Total calories : 2000 - 2200? approximately...

And because of my schedule today the kitchen will be closing by 10pm tonight...

Shannon, I'm a minimalist. I just bake the squash--no butter, nothing. I can eat it with nothing on it, too, but a little maple syrup is nice.

Breakfast: turkey burger, 1/2 grapefruit, 1/4 c. sweet potato (290 cal)

Lunch: 1 1/2 c homemade turkey soup, small salad with 1 Tbl. homemade balsamic vinagrette (300 cal?)

Snack: 1 celery stalk with 2 Tbl peanut butter (205 cal)

Dinner: turkey enchiladas (turkey, corn tortillas, homemade gluten-free sauce, salad w/ 1 Tbl. vinagrette, 2/3 c wine (450 cal?)

2 Hershey's dark chocolate kisses (42)

Total: about 1300 maybe? 1400?

Well, I ended up having dinner out after the movie after all. Made good choices and I believe I came in at around 1800 for the day.

Wednesday Jan 9:
Breakfast - greek yogurt w/ honey and pomegranate, coffee w/ 1 tbsp cream & 1 tsp raw sugar
Lunch - grilled chicken sandwich
Snack - string cheese
Dinner - grilled seafood skewer with salmon, sole, scallops, veggies and about three spoons of rice, glass of wine
Snack - dinner might be late, if so then no snack. If not, a small piece of candy at 150 cals or less.
Projected total: 1250 without evening snack, 1400 with.

Exercise - might be off today, depends on how sore I am when I get home.

Krampus, tell me more about the 'utica greens' style kale, did you toss it all together raw or sautee it? I guess I could google 'utica greens'.

Oh, I found it! That looks awesome.

It was sauteed...with a lot of oil, and a lot of Kraft parmesan cheese. :P
