Default Staying OP 8/22 - 8/29

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?

1: 3/4 of an egg white omelete with lots of sauteed veggies, 1 slice dry wheat toast with orange marmalade (had breakfast at a local diner)(brunch)
2: cheesestick
3: salmon cake w/ sauteed spinach and a bit of leftover risotto.

not a great day, although I do feel good that I avoided the usual diner pitfalls and stuck with something that was filling and didn't leave me feeling bad after.

Back on the right track tomorrow.

Bad weekend here too... not going to post it. Just know I am back with a vengeance! I will be out of town(visiting grandparents) but I imagine I will do at least 90% of the cooking so that is a good thing~! I fly out early so I plan to make my smoothie and not be hungry by the time I reach the airplane!SO, plan for tomorrow is to stay as OP as I possibly can!

Oh and dinner tonight is stuffed red poblanos with black beans and veggies, topped with enchilada sauce! Yummo!

I stayed on plan (phase 1) for six days so far. I will push to do another eight days without messing up. I have survived going to the movies and dealing with food pushers all week. Next week will be even harder but I'm ready! Good luck ladies!

Well, today was my first day of P1, so here's how I did:

B: scrambled eggs with spinach, coffee
S: sunflower seeds
L: Lettuce Wrap w/ cream cheese, turkey, tomatoes, sunflower seeds and sprouts; baby carrots with salsa
S: Yogurt with 1 tbsp peanut butter
D: SB Fish Chowder w/ Kale, not summer squash

I think I did okay, did get a little hungry but it's because I ran errands longer than anticipated and missed lunch-time. This was also before I went grocery shopping, but I did stay on track. Tomorrow will be a better day!

Lasting one -
Nice job getting veggies in. A couple of things I noticed -
*remember nuts and seeds are just one serving/day
*carrots are, sadly, phase II veggies. How about pepper or cucumber slices instead?
*Beans are not required but will help you stay full longer. They also help with the South Beach flu if you start feeling tired.

Happy Day 2

Hi Cyndi!

Thank you for the advice!! I didn't realize all of that with the seeds and carrots, so I appreciate the heads up. Can't stand cukes though, lol, but I do love peppers so that's easy enough. The beans were one thing that I thought was missing too, because I did get hungry and a little anxious. I will add them today.

Back from yet another trip. I was really, really proud of myself the last few days, eating so well during the day. I packed snacks (cut up veggies, hard boiled eggs, sparking water), eating a healthy breakfast at a restaurant (plain oatmeal, fruit and a scrambled egg). BUUUUUUT - then things fell apart at dinner on two of the three nights. The second night involved other peoples' choices at a Chinese restaurant (I had suggested one because they have steamed veggies and brown rice; somehow our choice was switched to a low-veg, high-salt/oil affair). The first night involved too much wine (boo! but fun) and while my food choices were still good (yay me!) the volumes were entirely too much.

ANYway - looking over the Phase 1 threads, I have decided to go back to a real Phase 1 for the rest of the month. I haven't done the whole two weeks in more than a year. I need some structure.

Today is all about eating up the Phase 2 goodies.

B/L - whole wheat orzo with salmon and veggies (spinach, yellow pepper and carrots), black tea
S - Kashi GoLean bar (not really SB-friendly, has real sugars, 13g total to be exact) with natural peanut butter
S2 - Peach with Greek yogurt
D - Soba noodles with scallops, broccoli and cauliflower, roasted beets & carrots (which is a bit insane in this hot weather, but oh well, I don't want them to go to waste)

Exercise: 40 minute walk, 1 hour yoga class

Stressful day at work. Glad I had leftovers in the fridge when I got home, but didn't get my usual amount of veggies in.

L: Salmon, bell peppers, RF cheese stick (no time for my salad)
S: Tall skinny hazelnut latte
D: Leftover salmon again, steamed broccoli, sprinkle of Parmesan cheese
S: Almond butter
