Default Planning for Tuesday

I did well for my first day home all day--I actually didn't eat the oatmeal or yogurt I had planned for, but I did have a few licks of a fruit dip I was making to bring as a goodie to my old co-workers (cream cheese, marshmallow fluff, and crushed pineapple--a delicious way to make the fruit not so healthy ). I also had 2 liters of water, which is less than I would have had in the office, but more than I normally have when I'm home all day, so not bad overall. Moving on to tomorrow's plan:
  • smoothie (banana, pb, skim milk)
  • oatmeal
  • salad--Monday I did a chef's salad (lettuce, spinach, egg, beans, ham, croutons, avocado, cucumber, and ff thousand island), so maybe for Tuesday I'll do an Asian flare salad (spinach, shredded cabbage, beans, leftover stir-fry served cold, light sesame ginger dressing)
  • yogurt
  • ham steak w/pineapple and a rice or pasta side

I haven't figured any of the calories or points, but this is the plan:

b--couscous w/ splenda and dried cranberries
l--homemade chef salad, lite vidalia onion dressing
s--2 wasa crackers, 1 wedge laughing cow
d--vegetable and chicken couscous
s--sf jello

I bought the Superfoods Rx book yesterday. I'm going to work on adding these foods into my diet. I have a lot of leftover processed diet foods that I can't just throw away. So, I'll add some in and use up the frozen dinners I have.

I love these kinds of posts, maybe cuz I love talking about food- I truly feel obsessed sometimes, but lately it's been an obsession on healthy foods. Everyones menus sound so good, I haven't really thought of mine yet, but here goes:

B- english muffin w/ 1T PB
s- small nectarine
gym- 1 hour cardio
L- big salad with grilled chicken leftovers, tomatoes, cukes, little bleu cheese and some pine nuts- light rasp vinaigrette
no snack, gonna take a nap instead been working late at night so I need a nap.
D- Homemade Cord on Bleus- baked chicken with one slice ham and fat free swiss. steamed spinach on the side.

Have to work tomorrow night too, the hardest part is trying not to eat when I get home at 3:00 am. Just GO TO BED!

Tomorrow I'm trying a new salad for lunch! I get ridiculously excited about these things, I've been looking forward to it since last week.

B - Flax Plus cereal, 4 oz soy milk, the last of my blueberries (about 300 calories)
S - tea with a little soy milk and sugar, maybe some fruit
L - Chicken salad with apricots, mango (supposed to avocado but they were way overripe so I'm sustituting mango), apricots, and slivered almonds (about 300 calories)
S - nutrition bar (100 to 200 calories)
S - fruit, nuts, or popcorn
D - Chicken in vietnamese sauce, 1/2 ear of corn, green salad (about 400 calories)
S - low calorie pudding, if I have enough calories left, otherwise sugar-free candy

Exercise: about an hour of cardio, combo of elliptical and treadmill, maybe also stairs

- Barbara

I was just wondering... on a package on pasta if it says X number of calories in 1.25 cup / 85 gram - is that dry or cooked? Cooked takes up more room but weighs less (I would think)

I overdid it on pizza last night, but didn't do too bad on calories.

Br: Ham, cream cheese, tomato sandwhich, nectarine, yogurt
Lu:Leftover Pizza (not the greatest, but that's all there was to bring and I'll stay within my calorie limit), FF chocolate pudding
Din:Salad (lettuce, chicken, tomatoes, red and green peppers, avocado, italian dressing), mango

ex: walking 4 miles

hmm...I don't know about this one specifically. Most pasta boxes say to measure dry, but 1.25 cups dry is a LOT cooked--more than 1 serving, I would think. I would actually think cooked pasta is heavier also because it has absorbed so much water. The past in my cabinet says a servings is 3/4 cup dry (180 calories--and that's a whole-grain pasta).

Typically, I would assume it means dry--it just sounds like a big serving size to me, so who knows

Ooh, could you figure it out by the number of servings per container? If it says there are 3 servings per container but certainly not 3.75 cups of dry pasta, then it means cooked (and vice versa).
