Default The "On Plan" Thread for Dec 21 - 27, Christmas Week!

Christmas week!

Quote:
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?

Just 2 and 1/2 days of school this week, but they're guaranteed to be full of candy and baked goods. I'm staying out of the teachers' room as much as possible and giving away the candy/baked goods gifts that students and staff members keep giving me. So far so good, but this will be the really tough week. lol

B - oatmeal
S - yogurt
L - stuffed cabbage
S - veggies & hommus
D - broccoli soup,
Hot cocoa or other milky drink sometime this afternoon or evening.

The next two weeks are going to require planning, even if that planning involves 2 Mom cookies The more planned eating I do the better the scale will look come 2010.

My tricks for the week include a big pot of vegetable soup - just broth and low cal veggies. I'll bring that to Mom's for eating before treating. Baggies of veggie sticks will also go with me everywhere.

B: 5 grain cereal with walnuts & apple
S: on the road, think I'll bring a bag of baby carrots & have a latte at Borders
L: leftover red beans, veggie chorizo & spinach
S: yogurt
D: beans & greens with the last of the fresh kale, veggie burger
S: wine with The Grinch

Exercise - bike or elliptical, 10 minute flexibility & abs (20 minutes)

Well...reality has struck and there has been way too much slippage. I am going to make a big pot of veggie soup today and it'll be lunch and maybe dinner for a while. I have foodie events happening every day this week except today and am not as strong as I thought. (I was attacked by the Christmas baking elves yesterday and hope they have gone back to the North Pole for the rest of the week.)
B. Yogurt, Fibre One, banana - the rest are in the dehydrator
L. Veggie soup with a few beans thrown in, two clementines
D. Chicken breast, green salad, roasted cauliflower
WATER!

I stepped on the scale this AM and am really happy to be staying on track through the holidays. I'm continuing to focus on eating meals OP (even when we go out), and only partaking in SBD goodies. I am lucky that I don't have any social situations this week to tempt me. Exercise class today!

B - oatmeal, V8
S - yogurt
L - unstuffed cabbage
S - veggies, hommus
D - chicken and quinoa with steamed veggies
Cocoa or other milky drink sometime this afternoon or evening.

Phase 1.5 is a gradual transition into Phase II with the addition of one thing (fruit or grain) added to the diet. Some add one thing per day for a week or so before adding in another Phase II food to see if it causes cravings or problems.

Phase II

B: Oatmeal with almond butter and unsweetened vanilla almond breeze, V8
L: Chili, RF cheese stick, carrots
S: Greek yogurt, prunes
D: Veggie omelet
S: WW bread with almond butter

Just wanted to pop in and say hello. We had a HUGE snowstorm last weekend. There are cars across the street from me that aren't yet dug out.

BUT I have not been happily on plan. I have not thrown caution to the winds, but I've realized (for about the third time) that, through no fault of its own, SB is not for me. I have not been able to stick to a schedule; my eating pattern is still too undisciplined. SO after Christmas I'm going to start on something more flexible. SB is a terrific plan, and I look forward to coming back to it when I've conquered some of my demons. In the meantime, I've met some great people and some terrific recipes!

I wish everyone a very merry christmas and the best of new years.
