Default The "On Plan" Thread for Dec 28-Jan 3, New Year's 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?

While I enjoy the holidays, I'm really glad to see an end in sight. I feel like I did pretty good getting through food wise by trying to make sensible choices. I certainly did crunch on some foods that wouldn't normally be included in my fare but it seems it wasn't enough to effect my weight.

What I am taking from this holiday season is the reality that I really enjoy my new WOL and I'm excited to get back OP. Yesterday was OP for me and I feel pretty good this morning. Fortunately, we don't have a party agenda for New Years Eve, so I feel like I'm starting my new year a week early. This week-OP and exercise!

Thanks for getting this started Debbie. The most important thing for me is still planning. I also like to have a really low call veggie soup around for snacks or emergencies. I load it with things like cabbage and greens then eat a big bowl if I'm about to go off the rails. It boosts my vegetables and keeps me full and away from the temptations around me. This week I made a really thing split pea soup just to flavor the broth then loaded it with veggies (red cabbage in green split pea broth isn't the most attractive combination )

B: leftover porridge and egg pancake
S: Greek yogurt, baby carrots
L: baby lima bean and veggie casserole
S: veggie soup
D: chili? hitting the freezer stash

exercise - 30 minutes cardio (treadmill), 10 minute arms, 10 minute flexibility, Wii - maybe yoga from BL?

Planning makes all the difference for me, too. Even if I change my plan during the day I make more thoughtful choices because I spent a little time planning.

B - oatmeal, v8
S - yogurt
L - bean soup, salad
S - almonds
D - Eating out in Portland, probably salmon and steamed veggies
SF hot cocoa

Treadmill this morning and lots of mall walking this evening. Hopefully I'll get some swimming in at the hotel, too.

I'm all set for a clean Phase 1.5 day.

I had my oatmeal with gingered fruit compote for breakfast and made a big veggie filled salad with tofurky for lunch, and I'll have a cup of portobello mushroom soup for a mid-day snack if needed. Supper will be butternut squash soup and roasted green bean "fries". I'm going to start trying to cut out my dessert treat every night.

Phase 1 V-SBD 3 days prior to starting.

Shut, I already messed up day 1, even though I am not officially starting till 12/31 (i need to get rid of some no no foods first).

B. grits ( i know a no no on P!)and 1 egg
L will be a green salad and yogurt
D will be veggie burger, beans and veggie


I am also going off all sweets starting today, so be nice. I would like to get a few days off sweets before I start P!. I will eat on plan the rest of the day, guess you could say I'm sneaking up on SB. I have jumped in, feet first and fell flat on my face before, so this time I'm taking it slow.

Phase 2

B - oatmeal and V8
S - yogurt
L - chili and maybe a salad
S - hommus and red pepper strips
D - grilled chicken, steamed veggies
SF hot chocolate or another milky drink sometime during the afternoon or evening.

I'm going to dig out my pilates DVD today now that guest room is turned back into my exercise room. I don't know how long I'll manage, I haven't used it since Thanksgiving but I'm sure I can at least get through the stretching section. I'll either snowshoe or hit the treadmill, too. This is my last vacation day for a while, I plan to make the most of it.
