Default 21 Days to Beat a Rut ... Day 18

Since I've found daily and/or meal planning threads and so on very encouraging let's try this. 21 days. Set you own parameters. I'm not even setting a goal. I just need to kick things up a bit. Stir up some enthusiasm.

There's no good reason for me to have an off plan day in 3 measly weeks. Is there?
Here's my general plan ...1400 cals of superfoods with 150 gms of protein (on average), some jogging in each daily walk and a four day weight lifting split with heavier weights.

Anybody in? It's only three weeks. Who knows what kind of new habits we can form!

And it doesn't matter if you're a day or 2 or 7 behind just find the thread for day 21
21 Days to Beat a Rut ... Day 21
and begin. There will always be a link to the next day, so that you can progress along with everyone else.

Today, in my lunch bag I have salmon, green salad, ff cottage cheese and yogurt.
I think I'll take a rest day from weights and walk/jog this evening.

Default Day 18 a.m.

I think I've finally got this thread thing figured out (and I'm not even on my own computer!)

I always pack a lunch - eat in my car - and it's always the same. Easy to maintain calories/healthy foods that way. Adding in a sliced apple for the 2:30 crash is working really well. I couldn't eat a whole apple and drive at the same time so the slices are portable and consumable.

I used to get home around 4 - 4:30 p.m. and start snacking, waiting for DH to arrive so I could start making dinner. Now, with the apple under my belt I'm not starving when I get in the door.

So I've got my lunch, snack, and liquids for today, Day 18. I'm

Did my plan include a slice of pizza? I didn't think so.

Ya know Allison, you really can. Just go back to the first thread and 'do over'.

Unhappy Day 18 p.m.

Day went well until I lost my snack and replaced it with Doritos. The whole sordid tale is posted in the chat for the week.

Back OC (on challenge) for this evening

This could turn into the 221 day challenge if we have to start over every time . I guess that's the challenging part - not slipping so we don't have to have the "do over". I'm in - meet you at the 21 day thread tomorrow

Does anyone else find it interesting that so many of us slipped up on day 3 or 4? Hmmm.

Okay, we're only on day 18 and I'm already forgetting what day I'm on. But even if I can't remember the day, it was still right on plan! Woo-hoo.

And I ate totally awesome food. Lunch was my new favorite turkey, avocado, hummus, and cucumber sandwich. Dinner was something new--Carribbean jerk chicken with mashed plantains! So tasty for a mere 320 calories. It was also easy peasy to make; we'll definitely be having this again. And we have homemade strawberry sponge pudding for dessert (with homegrown strawberries, even).
