Default On Plan Thread April 1 - 7

Now that the long weekend is done and behind us, time to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and get back to on plan eating.

This is the place to post your daily menus.
Cheers to a week on plan!

I was very bad on posting here last week. I did ok until the week end, but with several easter celebrations to attend I must admit my weekend eating sort of got away from me. But this is a new week and I am back (more or less) on plan.

Phase 1.5 (fruit no grain)
off today, so I slept in. Which mean a small snack instead of a breakfast

Celery w/ PB
Glass of skim milk

Veggie & Chicken soup

Taco Salad w/ lean ground beef, romaine, tomatoes, green onion, jalapeno & ranch dressing (mixed w/ franks sauce)

Cucumbers & rf cheddar (when munchie later)

Thanks for starting this thread, Lindsay!
No breakfast today, I slept all morning cause I have some kind of monster head cold. :-(
L: Laughing Cow on whole wheat English muffin; 0 fat yogurt & cottage cheese with 1/2 cup blueberries and walnut halves. Coffee with skim.
D: split pea soup; LC.
Still hungry at 9:30p. Not sure what I'm going to do. Have been sabotaging myself, AGAIN, last week, and want a fresh start this April.
Update...bad choice. At 10pm had 1/2 pound of steamed broccoli and sauteed kale AND way too many baked chickpeas (they might really count as fried since I coated the tray with too much olive oil).

Hello! I am in week 3, but continuing phase 1 for a while due to some vodka I had last weekend...nothing too horrible. I also don't feel ready for bread or anything like it yet. So far lost 5 pounds but have been dealing with a pound of water weight the last few days.

I am pretty good about being on plan...actually REALLY good! BUT, today may be an issue as I went to lunch with coworkers to a Thai place. Now, mind you, I stayed OP foodwise - got the chicken larb salad which is just ground chicken with spices and mint leaves, and a little romain lettuce. It's really mostly ground chicken! And the dressing is mostly lime juice and cilantro...BUT (there's always one, isn't there?) an hour after eating I'm feeling after effects of what must have been MSG That usually means a 2 pound water gain. It pisses me off! Otherwise I am OP as always...gonna drink mean amounts of water the rest of the day!

Ugh, Syckgirlsfv, MSG is the devil. At least you know if you do go up 2 pounds, water weight goes away pretty quickly!

B: 1 egg, 1 egg white, LC, whole wheat english muffin. Two waters.
L: veggie & soy protein chiliThree waters.
S: baby bel lite; NF cottage cheese with some blueberries and walnuts
D: 4 meatballs (Lindsay, no foam!) with tomato sauce, roasted fennel with walnuts, four waters.
S(?): Met two friends...had tea with skim and a small cupcake! (Wanted to have a treat in a controlled fashion. I might kick myself tomorrow, but I figured better to eat that one small one in public than forty in private.)

Lessons learned from this imperfect day:
1) I cannot hang out with these two women when food is involved until I am in maintenance phase. It's just too difficult.
2) Evening is my danger time. I need to figure out some serious structure for after 7pm!

EliseVi Im glad you were not a victim of the dreaded "meat-foam"

Syckgirlsfv My fear of reintroducing bread & pasta into my menu, is what drives my stay in phase 1.5... I can enjoy fruit, but stay grain free.

Phase 1.5 (fruit, no grain)

SBD Muffin (from the phase 1 recipe board)
Glass of skim milk

Caeser salad w/ romain, tomatoes, onion, HB egg slices, Renee's garlic lovers dressing

Greek yogurt w/ vanilla & 1/3 banana slices

Broccoli soup w/ rf cheddar
Pudding

Peanuts (1 oz) <--- Thank you TOM

Celery w/ ranch (if I start to munch!)

so I got home and went for a jog for about 30 minutes...hubs came with and he did ok, but he won't go that fast because his ankle isn't used to it yet. No matter, it was a good jog

And I gained exactly 2 pounds of water! RAWR! I'm having a glass of wine tonight and then will be actively flushing those 2 pounds out tomorrow, either walking during lunch hour or at my step class tomorrow night! Stomach still looks pretty darn flat, though.

Yes, MSG is the devil! I was duped, though...I didn't know they used it at this place but I sure do now

so yesterday went better than I thought it was going to go, because when I got home the hubby decided he would like to try jogging with me instead of going to the stuffy gym and using the cardio machines!

He did ok, actually...even though he jogged much slower because he's not only got a broken ankle, but he's very heavy. BUT it's muscle heavy, except for maybe 15 pounds that he needs to lose around his gut. He's 6 feet tall but weighs 250, and he should really be around 235 with his muscle mass taken in to consideration. Big, strong, beefy man But he enjoyed himself enough to commit to doing that with me twice a week! The rest of the time we'll still go to the gym to lift weights and for my step class.

Breakfast: egg substitute w/light swiss and 2 slices turkey bacon

snack: mini babybel light, greek yogurt w/almonds (also splenda and pumpkin pie spice)

lunch: tuna w/light mayo with celery sticks instead of bread.

Turbo sculpt step class tonight! Dinner is a mystery...
