Default The First Week of March On-Plan thread, 3/1 - 3/7

This is the place to get support, post tips and menus, find new food ideas and brag about your successes. What's your combo? What's your challenge?
Please post the phase so new folks can see the progression.

Late winter/early spring can be a tough time. Maybe you have had it with the gym and really want to be outside but it's spitting and blowing. There isn't a lot of good, fresh produce easily available. Those late season storms can make comfort eating seem appealing. How do you stay on track when you just want to curl up with a large bar of chocolate and make it all go away? What about exercise? How do you motivate yourself to go to the gym or get on that treadmill one more time?

Heidi, I totally agree with you. The entire month of February has been awful, weather-wise, and if it wasn't for my Wii Fit and my bike, I wouldn't have been working out except to shovel snow. Deciding to get a Wii was one of the best ideas I've had. I actually look forward to exercising now, which I've always dreaded.

B. oatmeal in unsweetened almond milk w/peaches & walnuts
L. Hobbitshire soup, yogurt
S. blueberry peach mock coffee cake
D. veggie stuffed butternut squash lasagna
S. fudgesicle w/ff Cool Whip

Exercise - 30 minutes Wii Fit this morning and 20 minutes on the bike tonight.

That Wii definitely livens things up. I have to admit that some days I boot it up just so it won't do the Jewish grandmother thing on me (so you were too busy to exercise yesterday). I just ordered the Active workouts and am looking forward to a little more intensity. Last night I played tennis for 20 minutes and did 2 Island Runs. I'm taking Karen's suggestion and changing my exercise to see if that kick starts the weight a little.

Today is a 1.5 day
B: egg & laughing cow, black bean avocado salsa
S: mock banana blueberry coffee cake
L: bean soup & salad
S: siggis yogurt
D: spaghetti squash with veggies & gimme lean

exercise: 30m Wii TBL yoga, 60m treadmill, 10m weights back permitting

Y'all, I am dying. I was trying to get Vitamin E in by taking a teaspoon of wheat germ oil every morning, but it is seriously the nastiest thing I've ever tasted. I can't even put it in my smoothie because it ruins the taste of that. So I think I'm going to have to resort to supplements instead. Blech, that's a waste of $7.99 on the oil!

I lost 2.5 pounds last week, and I'm still on phase 1.5. I'm following SBD along with working with my doctor (who recommended it for my PCOS) so I'm transitioning into P2 a little bit more slowly than the book recommends.

I forgot my lunch today, though, so I'm stuck with a salad from the salad bar in the cafeteria, which can be a little gross. However, that means a half mile walk there and back to get it (I work on a college campus).

L: Chopped cucumber, deli chicken, chickpeas and l/f cheese
D: Veggie burgers (no bun for me) and veggies
S: Strawberry smoothie

Day 3 of Phase 1 for me, so far so good. I haven't tackled any exercise yet, been too busy with the kids and work. I hope to return to Jazzercise this week though.

B: ham, onion, mushroom saute with l/f cheddar
S: veggies & hummus
L: leftover taco bake
S: nuts
D: chicken & spinach bake
S: bean brownie (giving it a try, but I must admit I'm skeptical!)

I think the bean brownies will surprise you, Carolina. They really are good... more like a cake than a brownie... but they have good flavor, we had a 9 year old visiting this week who was the pickiest eater ever and she likes them (of course, we didn't tell her what was in them )

You may want to consider add 2 cups of dairy... especially the next few days to keep feeling well. Skim milk and non-fat plain yogurt really helped me through my first week of Phase 1.

Having a really bad week & strayed off plan this weekend. My husband was let go without warning at his job Friday, so we were unprepared for it. He's been there for 25 years! Led to some serious ice cream eating for me.

Back on Phase II

B: Oatmeal with almond butter & almond milk
L: Salmon, RF cheesestick, huge salad
D: Stuffed peppers, crack slaw (been eating this every other day!)
S: Yogurt or ricotta dessert

So sorry to hear that Anne. I'm hearing it all around but it sure doesn't help when it's you
Good job getting right back on plan too.

Anne, I'm sorry to hear about your husband's job...25 years, that's nuts! I hope things work themselves out quickly for you.

1oftheluvs-Thanks for the dairy tip. I'm not a yogurt fan, but I threw in a glass of milk with lunch and dinner.

I realized I didn't have oil to make the bean brownies tonight, so I'm going to try them tomorrow. I'm excited to make them. I don't think I'm going to tell my DH or the kids whats in them!

Hi Folks! So after a rough start to week 2 of Phase 1, I ended up with a gnarly stomach bug that completely derailed me. The last thing I wanted to eat was veggies and protein. I did lose 6 pounds though (not including the stomach bug loss). I'm into Phase 2 now and already know I need to scale back the carbs a bit but that's okay. I'm learning!

B - scrambled eggs with spinach and feta
S - NF greek yogurt with blueberries
L - ww breadstick, LF cheese, homemade black bean burger/patties, green peppers, cukes
S - celery with PB
D - ww pizza with tomato sauce, loads of broccoli and garlic, meatless crumbles, LF mozz. (I made the dough from scratch. Lots of work but totally worth it!).
S - Salad with balsamic vinegar

No exercise today - I was busy cooking and had to go shopping.

Good luck everyone!
