Thanks Matilda - I'm as ready as I can be. I've really maxed the birthday eating the last few days and am so ready to jump back on plan. Not too much off plan but a whole lot of eating overall. Seems the more carbs I have the more I just eat and eat.

I've got garlic basil cauliflower alfredo sauce, curried chick peas, refried beans and lots of good Trader joe foods. I'm working from home tomorrow and will make the egg muffins for the rest of the week. let's do it!

Awesome! I got back from Iceland last night, and now I'm ready to start! The scale is not showing any damage from the trip (159.6 this morning), but we'll see if that changes at all.

I suspect my birthday will be off plan on Thursday, but I think I should be able to make the other days work. I'll plan my menu and post it here. I'm going to keep track of my calories at the same time!

Now to browse some recipes!

Edited to Add:

Dinners this week

Mon: Basic greek salad with chicken
Tue: Turkey burgers (no bun) topped with grilled zucchini & laughing cow. Green beans.
Wed: Chicken, spinach, zucchini casserole
Thurs: Bday dinner out
Fri: I may be moving. We will see.

Also made up a batch of cauliflower cheese soup!

I spent the weekend compiling a list of my favorite Phase 1 recipes so I'd be prepared for the week. Breaking my oatmeal habit is going to be the hardest challenge for me, since I'm not much of an egg person. This Breakfast Casserole is delicious, though, and I hope it gets me through the morning.

B. Breakfast Casserole (eggs, ff cottage cheese, spinach, tomatoes, onion, lf Monterey Jack cheese)
S. Greek yogurt with chia and a bit of SF caramel syrup
L. big veggie-filled salad w/roasted chickpeas - no dressing
S. cherry tomatoes & string cheese
D. Portobello parmesan over broccoli slaw

Did I miss the memo about a phase 1 week for everyone? I'm on board, it is TOM this week and I'm having a heck of time fitting into anything. I'm also going to be doing a calorie check this week b/c my losses seem to have stalled.

P1

1: 1 egg, scrambled; 1 c. greek yogurt w/ cinnamon and stevia
2: salad greens w/ avocado, tomato, cucumber w/ hummus dressing; 1 T. almond butter
3: roasted chickpeas
4: hamburger sans bun, broccoli slaw w/ rf feta and a vinegar dressing
5: greek yogurt w/ cinnamon

exercise: 60 min. fat burner class, 1 mile run

calories for the day: 1303

Feeling drained - probably from TOM and the lack of sleep last night.

OK - I was SO gonna try this - but I realized I have an Ultimate game 4 out of 5 nights this week, and I cannot play 2 hours of Ultimate every night without some grains. I will live vicariously through all of you . . .

Be well -

This seems like a good time to give P1 a go again - no fun to do it alone, right?

I start eating later in the day but I need to work on *stopping* eating at a reasonable time or I just keep going . I am up 3 pounds from when I last recorded my weight (May 20). I haven't been so great about staying on plan with foods either.

Black tea with us almond milk
Walking, yoga, walking
B - Mexican chocolate cheesecake smoothie (cocoa powder, cinnamon, cottage cheese, nf Greek yogurt, stevia)
L - Black bean soup with melted lowfat cheddar cheese on top. Spinach salad on the side w/ olive oil dijon vinaigrette. Low sodium V-8 juice.
S - Orange pepper and broccoli florets with hummus. Iced green tea.
S - Celery with Laughing Cow light, 4 thick English cucumber rounds with tuna salad on top
D - Huge shrimp cocktail (w/ NSA cocktail sauce). Caprese salad. A few marinated mushrooms (in olive oil, lemon juice, garlic & thyme - Moosewood recipe)
dessert - almonds and walnuts. Nothing after 9 pm.

Ran this through FitDay - 1417 calories; 60g fat, 104g carbs (31 g fiber), 125g protein

Well, the day is almost over and I'm pleased to say I did very well! I did skip my afternoon snack, though, since I wasn't the least bit hungry. I may have some chili-lime almonds if I feel hungry later, but I'm trying to get out of the "have to have a dessert" habit.

How did everyone else's day go?

BTW, Matilda, I just posted that Breakfast Casserole recipe in the Phase 1 breakfast ideas. I hope you like it!

Well today is my official first day on the SBD. I weighed myself this morning and that wasn't fun but I'm hoping next Monday to see a good result.

B: 2 Scrambled Eggs, 1 cup sauteed mushrooms and 2 pieces Canadian bacon
S: Part-Skim String Cheese
L: 1 cup 1% Cottage Cheese and 2 Cups Mixed Raw Veggies
S: 30 pistachios
D: 4oz Grilled Top Sirloin, Sauteed Veggies (onion, pepper, mushrooms), Asparagus and Green Salad with 1tbsp yogurt Parmesan Caesar dressing.

My biggest downfall is evening snacking so if I get the urge I'll have some sugar free gum and/or herbal tea. I have a selection of really good loose leaf tea that I'm hoping will satisfy me.

I'm also planning on going for a brisk 40-45 minute walk today and going up a couple of hills.

Oh SBD veterans please feel free to critique my meal plans as I post them if you see an area where I need improvement or where I may be not on plan.
