Default The "On Plan" Thread - week of Nov. 30 to Dec. 6

It's time for a new week of talking On-Plan!

* Anyone, from any phase (1, 1.5, 2, 3, etc.) can post, and those who are new to 3FC are especially encouraged to do so!
* This thread is for questions, sharing advice and strategies, and encouraging each other to stay on plan. It is not for chatting about daily life unrelated to this topic. Members have indicated that they would like to have chatting remain in the Daily Thread, so any posts that are off topic or chatty will be moved by the mods to the Daily.
* Because people from different parts of the plan are posting here, it'll help everyone if you indicate what phase you're in when you post. Thanks!
* While you may certainly find, from time to time, the need to ask for help after going off plan, remember that this thread is about staying on plan. When you share details of off plan foods you've eaten, it can upset, tempt, and otherwise frustrate other members, so please keep these details to a minimum.

So, share with us: How are you staying on plan this week?

Thanks, everyone, for posting your phases! How is it going with staying on plan? Are you doing well with avoiding any recriminations for Thanksgiving indulgences?

What kinds of pitfalls do you see coming up in this week? What will you do to avoid or handle them?

This week I have a lot of stuff to do at home. My big pitfall is getting so busy that I don't take time to make or eat good meals. I end up grabbing whatever's at hand, and WW crackers do not a meal make. My way of coping, so far, has been to plan and prepare really easy meals (which has the added benefit of cleaning out our freezer to make room for all the cookies and appetizers I'll be making!) for dinners that lend themselves to easy meals during the day, too. Having a big dish of veggies is really helpful. I found this recipe very easy and totally delish: Roasted Cauliflower & Delicata Squash

So far, so good at staying on plan for the last two days, food and exercise-wise.

Today's plan:
B: Cottage cheese with orange slices
S: yogurt with SF jam
L: Turkey and SF cranberry sauce sandwich on WW, Leek and Cauliflower potage, SF pudding
S: apple, 1 oz cheese, WW crackers
D: Chicken in roasted red peppers, quinoa pilaf with spinach and broccoli
D: 3/4 cup NSA ice cream, SF hot cocoa with 2 T whipped cream.
E: 35 minutes on elliptical

How do you define phase 1.5???? Just curious why you consider yourself 1.5 and not 2.

For me, I'm on day 6 of phase1. Things going great.

BF -- spinach quiche
lunch -- broccoli cheese soup (made it yesterday and its FABULOUS!), salad with lo swordfish
snack - veggies and hummus
dinner - not sure yet!

Gumby -- what is "S/dessert should I want it 2 PB cookies mashed in a dollup of SF cool whip "

Are there a phase 1 peanut butter cookie receipe somewhere?
