I managed to get back on track today also. I'll find out tomorrow when I weigh in at my WW meeting if I gained. If so I'll just have to work on repairing the damage. I think I needed a break and ate more especially due to TOM and cravings. Best wishes to everyone for this new year.

Woohoo...Courtnie's back in planning mode I hope others will eventually come back and join us, too (I think Rasario and I are the only ones who've been in these "planning" threads for about a week now).

As for my Tuesday, I plan on about 90 minutes of exercise (not all at once--broken up into 30 minutes in the morning and a 60 minute walk after work)--that will help to make up for my lack of exercise on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.


Tomorrow's food should look something like this:
  • smoothie (banana, skim milk, vanilla protein powder)
  • yogurt
  • pbj sandwich
  • turkey sausage
  • SmartOnes frozen lasagna
  • chicken breast baked w/honey dijon marinade
The above comes to about 1435 calories and 133g protein.

I was doing fine until a few days before Christmas. The cookies and chocolate, is killing me! I've been eating way too much. Hopefully tomorrow will look like:

B: tofu smoothie
L: nothing, because the only vegetarian meal I can get at school is greasy pizza or calzone
(with school and after school things I don't get home until 6)
D: probably a lot of grilled veggies and I'll try to eat yogurt.

exercise will consist of running through the conservation area before school at about 6am. After school I'll probably be hiking around a beach.

if it wasn't for ecology I'd have to find my own exercise

Happy new year!

I had about 1920 calories today; sounds high but I tend to eat this much on the weekends. Hopefully a little less next week!

TUESDAY PLAN

Exercise: 30 mins elliptical/30 mins weights

whole grain bagel w/ butter (400 cal)
Au Bon Pain sandwich turkey w/ goat cheese, romaine, tomato (410 cal)
broiled pork chop w/ rice, green beans (400)
protein hot cocoa (80)
yoplait FF yogurt (100)

That list amounts to approximately 1700 calories. I realize the breakfast is high in calories but I eat oatmeal a lot at home so I'm kind of sick of it for work breakfast; anyone have any suggestions on what else I could eat at work when I arrive that's lower in calories but filling (I either bring from home or usually buy at a deli, au bon pain, or cosi on my way in)?

I thought these size pork chops I've been eating for a long time were "medium" but fitday lists them as "large" when I ACTUALLY did the math (after endless converting first from pounds to ounces then by servings etc). If it werent for DH, I never would have bought the pork chops but I think he gets bored with chicken (or maybe its me that gets bored!). But sheesh, chicken has so fewer calories than meat (this really gets hammered home when you enter in fitday).

I always say I'm going to take a lunch to school, but I wake up at 4:30 and have just enough time. Sometimes I'll get soy chips.

Hey mami, what about having 1/2 the whole grain bagel but putting peanut butter on it instead? Less calories, more filling, better fat. Just an idea ...

Gossamer - you totally need to eat lunch. Make it the night before if you have to. Make extra grilled veggies for dinner tomorrow night and throw them into a pita with some hummus. YUM!! I remember the days when I used to skip lunch or just eat chips ... my blood sugar would hit the basement and I'd feel like fainting. Wouldn't want that to happen to you!!

You want to make sure you eat enough or you won't loss. I was eating good and exercising over an hour a day and I didn't lose a thing for 5 weeks thats when I realized I was eating too little - I started eating more and started losing Make it the night before, or if you have to take a frozen meal - but you need to eat

onxgossamer--I'll echo others: eat some lunch! It really is important that you eat more than just once or twice a day. Sure, you'll lose by eating as little as you have planned, but you'll also kill your metabolism so that your weight loss will eventually get reeeeeally slow (or even stop completely), and then you'll have to keep eating that itty bitty amount for forever in order to maintain.

What I do is make a big batch of something on the weekend to take for lunches during the week. You could do a soup/stew/chowder--those are easy to just scoop into little Gladware containers to take for lunches. Or I even make sandwiches ahead of time--in fact, I'm about to go make about 5 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches right now to have in the fridge for the week. Almost anything you can make for a meal, you can make ahead of time and either freeze or throw in the fridge for the week. I know the feeling of not having time in the morning--I get up by 4:15 in order to get my exercise in, so putting together a lunch is pretty much out of the question. The key is to plan ahead!

You don't suck We're all just trying to help you out--it's hard to sit back and watch someone do what we know isn't helpful/healthy, especially if we've already suffered the heartache of the reality that it doesn't work...we're all here to save others from that mean slap of reality, too!
