Default December Accountability - surviving baked goods, chocolate and other seasonal treats!

Here it goes, the toughest month for healthy eaters. Seems like every well intentioned nice person we know will be offering us white flour, white sugar, butter laden goodies, and let's not even think about the cheese plates, full fat lasagnas, and fried and sauced everything! We can do it though, we can get through this together by helping one another stay on track.

B: 1.5 c broccoli, shrooms, egg, rf provolone, ff refried black beans, coffee
S: applesauce w/greek yogurt if I need it (might be afternoon snack instead)
L: white bean soup w/escarole
S: babybel, carrots
S: Nessa bar (late yoga class)
D: kale, quorn cutlet or Boca

exercise - yoga class (1.5 hr), maybe a lunchtime walk if the rain goes away

Good morning! Watched TLC last night and saw two stories about extreme obesity - what a wake-up call. The scale is 202 this morning and I am even more determined to ditch some of this weight. I have three weeks before my trip West where I will not have much control over menus and need to lose some by then in order to feel better about myself. So today's the start of a new month and a new week of caring for this poor old body!

Breakfast this three weeks will be my standard fibre cereal with fruit and milk or yogurt. There will be one citrus fruit per day. Looks like lunches will be soup most days and dinners will focus on lean meats and loads of veggies. There will be no wine in this house.

This morning I will get back on the dreadmill for at least a short time.

I have several social events this month and am going to have to get a firm grip. I may tell a white lie and refuse alcohol by saying it reacts with my medication. I guess it's OK to lie a bit to save your life?

^^ oops just read revised P1 list and milo is out from now on (powdered drink containing sugar). Done

Hi Ruth, I'm vegetarian, but usually eat more tofu and spinach than that. Actually there were a few pieces in the cooked vegetables today, so will add that

B - subway salad with mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato, olives, jalepenos and one thin slice of swiss cheese.
MT - medium salad with lettuce, tomato and fat free balsamic dressing.
L - miso soup and skim soy latte
AT- my own concoction, mayonnaise and avocado LOL
D - minestrone soup

Good for you in reading the list, Milo. I was going to check out Milo on Google but don't need to now. By the way, you definitely need more protein. (Did you mean to post this in the Phase I thread for critiquing? If so, let me know and I'll move it.)

UGH. Sugar free chocolate SUCKS.

My dinner tonight is white chili and blackened red snapper. If I just have to have dessert, I'm making "peanut butter delight".

Had my first social occasion on SB tonight. Wasn't too hard, surprisingly I'm lucky I have slim friends so we don't get jealous of each other being on diets because most of us have done it one time or another. I had my minestrone soup, while they had pasta and pizzas. My minestrone was delicious by the way!

Tomorrow I am going to breakfast place known for big english breakfasts, iced coffees with whipped cream and icecream and pancakes with canadian maple syrup. I will order eggs, tomatoes and a skim coffee (but it will probably cost the same as the full breakfast!)

I have decided not to make tomorrow night's party difficult for the host, so I will have the pizza the boys are having, but somehow dispose of the meat and bases (I'm thinking he has a dog... ). Lunch at work everyday will now be mixed vegetables and tofu (trying hard not to miss my beloved fresh fruit juices from the juice bar ).

Good work, Laker. I have a "ladies" luncheon with my quilting group tomorrow. Luckily we are going to a restaurant so I will be able to make my own choices.

If we were hermits and just stayed in our homes during this season we'd all be OK but Life happens.

I'm nearly out of Fibre One and some other healthy stuff so need to shop later today. I must make the Nessa Bars and the little quiche muffinthingies for quick breakfasts.

ETA: Cyndi, I have a box of Ferraro Rocher that have been tempting me. I wrapped them this morning before my coffee and put them in the box going to my DD. Now to get the darn box mailed! (I have been known to unwrap gift chocolates and then buy more for the gift. )

Ruth - I've got a whole bag of high quality dark chocolate in my holiday gift stash. I picked them up at sales last month. I just keep forgetting I have them because that seems like the safest thing. Once i open a bar I'm doomed so best to stay away.

We are hooked on Nessa bars. I make them almost every weekend. I usually get 9 - 12 servings out of a batch and we eat them more as snacks. DP discovered "frosting" them with greek yogurt & agave. Yes, this is the way our minds work!

I've done that too.

And the Dark Chocolate Rochers are REALLY good. Ok, I'm stopping before this turns into food porn.

Last night on phase one was REALLY difficult, I wanted chocolate chip cookies so bad! I resisted though. I made "peanut butter delite" which helped get me through the craving. I'm feeling pretty good today and am going to hit the gym after I go vote.

Today's meals:

B: Broccoli and cheese, yogurt
S: 2% cheese
L: White chili
S: Peanuts
S: Celery with caesar dressing
D: Blackened red snapper (didn't make it last night), salad, white chili
D: Fudgesicle

Guess what? It's possible to go to Brockville and skip the Chinese Buffet. I walked right past it. Of course it helped to have had a tuna sandwich on brown and a skim milk when I was at the grocery store just before. It's all planning, I guess.

Hey guys... looking through here and getting motivated again... I have been sooo bad lately. I weighed in at weight watchers monday morning and was down 1.6lbs, but I had been to a vinyard the day before and I am sure I was dehydrated so I think it will take a lot not to gain this week and I am not off to a good start!!! Why oh why is it so hard?!?! Ruth has it! it is POOR PLANNING for me! I know my problem, on days that are planned i do sooo much better! SO, looks as if I am working tomorrow so I am going to go ahead and plan...

B: 1 egg with coffee and 1 slice 12 grain bread
S: string cheese stick
L: lentil soup
S: celery and pb
D: enchilada bake(no tortillas for me) atop a big bed of salad

Ruthie! Oh, the lure of the Chinese buffet! It calls often to me, too.

I haven't been doing too badly avoiding all the holiday temptations so far. I knew we'd be baking gingerbread men today, so I was armed with a cup of gingerbread tea, and it helped me keep from nibbling. I'm just going to take it one day at a time, but so far so good.
