Default Phase I Start and Restart - week of Oct. 23

Here's the spot to post your menus, concerns and encouragement!

Bluehenkathy, to The Beach.

Any ideas on how to start an exercise program.
My metabolism is dead too! Some of the chicks start out with the Walk Away The Pounds tapes but a walking program outdoors works well too. Some chicks find Phase I leaves them a bit lethargic so wait a week or so before starting or resuming exercise.

Oh I was a bad girl last week. I made spice cake and it was sooooo delish!

Anywho I'm restarting Phase 1 this week and plan on trying to lose 15 pounds before the big turkey day. I did pretty well last time when I actually stayed on plan. We just get into ruts where we have to choose between paying bills or food. Majority of the time its bills Either way.... I went out and bought some SBD approved stuff so this is what I'm chowing down on today...

Breakfast (8:30 am): 3 scrambled eggs with a sprinkle of 2% milk cheese; one piece of laughing cow cheese (3/4 oz); decaf tazo chai tea with 1/2 teaspoon of splenda; 1 One a Day Women's Multivitamin

Snack (10:30 am): 1 piece of laughing cow cheese; decaf tazo chai tea with 1/2 teaspoon of splenda

Lunch (12:00 pm): 2 cups of baby romaine salad with 1/4 cup of green pepper and 1 cup of grilled chicken; 2 tablespoons of olive oil & vinegar dressing; bottled water

Snack (3:30pm): 15 Planter's Almonds, Macadamias, and Cashew Nuts; bottled water

Dinner (7:00 pm): Marinated & grilled bottom round (what little bit of fat was removed); Green giant vegtable mix with low fat tuscan herb sauce; small baby romaine salad with 1 tablespoon of olive oil & vinegar dressing

Dessert (9:30 pm): decaf chai tea with 1/2 teaspoon of splenda & one 3FC SBD peanut butter cookie

did I do good? FitDay says its about 1274 calories but I still couldn't get everything just right so it is off some. I drink water all day long so I'm flushing myself a lot. I plan on working out today but it depends on how daniel is feeling and how the cat is when he comes back from the vet. I try to keep my FitDay updated as much as possible. Don't be afraid to let me know if I'm slipping.

Looks like you are determined to get back on track and have planned ahead!

Um...about the nuts. I assume it's 15 nuts altogether, not 15 0f each? What's in the SBD peanut butter cookies? Are they OK for Phase I?

Correct the nuts are 15 all together.

The peanut butter cookies can be found here.

They were posted under Phase 1 desserts so I assume they are safe as long as you only have one.

Well just finished my 10:30 cheese and tea and I can say that I'm feeling pretty sleepy. I don't think its the lack of carbs, but Chai Tea is known to be very calming and relaxing. I think maybe 2 cups in the morning is a little too much. Now my arms and body are feeling all rubbery and mellowed out. Only 45 minutes til lunch and I'm doing good!

Note to self: The laughing cow cheese squares taste funky to me. I'm not used to super moist cheese so I had to put like a half of a teaspoon of balsamic vinagrette on it just to get past the yuck.

Gotcha! I thought theywere the pre-made SBD cookies and wondered. I hope lunch wakes you up a bit. Try Laughing Cow mixed with veggies like onion and peppers.

Default so far a good day

I went through all the video exercise programs I have bought over the years and found I had the Walking tapes. I put in the 1 mile tape and completed it. I'm motivated right now and plan on keeping it up.

My menu gets kind of repeative after a few days. I really look forward to dinner because I have a lot more time to cook and get things together.

Soon that will all change! School starts November 14th! hopefully

I actually need to make modifications to today's menu...

I only had my turkey meatloaf at lunch but ate my salad as my 3:30 snack and skipped the nuts all together. Instead of Medi. chicken we had garlic rubbed chicken baked in a mushroom creme sauce with olive topping.

looking at 1201 for the day.... hope we see results tomorrow!

So here's a question to those of you using Fitday: What percentage/grams of fat should I be trying to stay under (especially in Phase 1)? Or should I just ignore this and focus on the actual calorie count and eating SBD approved foods, etc?
