Default The On-Plan Thread for 3/8-3/14

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?

Cottage - I crossed the coffee cake recipe with the bean brownie recipe. It really changed the texture - made it drier and more like a nice moist cake. It bakes much faster!

I added 1/2 c cocoa, upped the agave to 1/2 c, used 1 t vanilla and added 1/2t baking soda. I replaced the 2 T oil with 2 T pb It is definitely a hit at our house. Next time I'm going to use 1/4 c PB to get a little more PB taste. I baked it at 350 and I think it was done in about half an hour. The cocoa makes the edges get that burned taste very quickly so watch it carefully.

Phase 2

B - v8, cheese cubes, hot tea
S - blueberries
L - eggplant lasagna, yogurt
S - almonds, v8
D - We're eating out in Portland, I'm planning to order salmon and steamed veggies....

Exercise - I'm not sure yet. There's an exercise room at the motel, but I don't think I'll want to abandon Fergie and the dog to use it. Hopefully we'll walk back and forth from the mall, restaurant, etc. The motel is right in the middle of things so it should be easy enough if I can convince the Ferg.

Phase 1.5, but I have been very sparse with the P2 foods until I see my doc again. She's advising me on this diet, and I haven't been given the official all-clear to start adding that stuff back into my diet, though she has given the go-ahead for some fruit. I was diagnosed with PCOS pretty recently, so we're taking it slow and seeing what works.

B - Protein smoothie with flaxseeds, agave nectar, tofu, soy milk, and yogurt
S - Cup of coffee with LF Half and Half; cheese
L - Chili made from a SBD friendly recipe on Kalyn's Kitchen (2 servings of veggies per serving) w/LF cheese and LF sour cream
S - Hard boiled egg & cheese stick & low-sodium V8
D - 3 oz. tilapia w/roasted asparagus & garlic
Late Night Munchies (I know I will need this, so I save some calories and spread it out) - Sugar free Jell-O, glass of milk, Chai tea

P 1.5

B: 1 poached egg, 2 slices turkey bacon, 1 slice ww toast w/ ICBINB spray, V8
L: pizza pocket (ww pizza crust, turkey pepperoni, mozz. cheese, sf pizza sauce)
D: szechwan shrimp (mushrooms, red bell pepper, pea pods, napa cabbage)

out of milk so I didn't get my dairy today. I also needed to up the veggies. This afternoon was a whirlwind, so I grabbed the fastest thing I could. It was on plan, but it could have been better. I was going to have brown rice with dinner tonight, but I think with all of the grain servings earlier in the day, I'll skip it and just go for the shrimp and veggies.
