Default Menus, Aug 27 through Sept 2

I've been hitting the 100 cal packs a little hard lately, so I thought I'd start this to get some accountability.

8/27
B-Heart healthy cereal w/ Fiber One and soymilk, banana, coffee w/ skim
S-pear, yogurt
L-leftover pork chop cooked w/ balsamic vinegar, olive oil, rosemary and garlic in a whole wheat pita, peach, dk chocolate
S-raw cauliflower & carrots w/ roasted red pepper hummus
D-probably 4 cheese ravioli w/ marinara
S-?? popcorn made w/ canola on the stove

Additional goals for the day: stay out of the junk food at work, limit the 100 cal packs/bars to one (small steps)

We have had a lot of real dessert (pies, cookies, etc) around the house lately that I havent had one of those 100 cal packs in forever. I think the real dessert is worse for my weight though haha.

Today:
Breakfast: Whole wheat english muffin with organic strawberry jam
Lunch: Nile Spice cup of soup - Couscous minestrone
Snack: maybe some crackers with avocado- depends on if they are ripe yet, and fruit
Dinner: No clue, haven't talked to the head chef (my dad) probably leftover chicken breasts and veggies

Additional goal for the day: STAY OUT OF THE BISCOTTI/COOKIE JAR AT WORK!

Check in from yesterday: I did mostly OK, but had a serious energy problem in the afternoon and resorted to caffeine in the form of diet soda, more than one can. Anyway, today I'll try to have tea if that happens and try to lay off the caffeine after noon, since I haven't been sleeping well.

Today, 8/28
B-whole grain flake cereal w/ added Fiber One & wild blueberries, soymilk, banana and coffee w/ skim
S-veggie chips, carrots
L-leftover pork chop (see yesterday) w/ basmati rice (white rice!), roasted cauliflower, dk choc
S1 (before swim)-yogurt, peach
S2 (after swim)-Clif nectar bar
D- probably a big salad, and yes, probably McDonalds SW salad. Other than the fact that it comes from McDs it is actually pretty reasonable.
S-??? popcorn (didn't have it yesterday)

Tuesday - day before my period, freakishly hungry ALL day.

B - 2 waffles, 1 with natural peanut butter, 1 with cherry jam

S - 6 oz blackberries

L - portabello mushroom tomato bisque, whole wheat roll

S - tall non fat sugar free latte, apricot/ginger cookie (didn't really want it, friend got it for me, couldn't resist cookie goodness in front of me, consoled myself with the thought it was at least whole wheat)

S - chocolate/peanut butter bonbon (what the ****??)

D - Emerald City Salad (made with kale, dark greens, lots of lemon, wild rice, olive oil, yellow pepper), barbequed chicken leg/thigh, 1/2 roasted sweet potato (all picked up from organic deli)

Trying to stay OUT of the kitchen now!

Breakfast - fiber one muffin (came out delicious, and fiber one fills me up for a good 4 hours), and yogurt
Lunch - guacamole and crackers and some fruit
Dinner - Flank steak marinated in a soy sauce with an ear of corn and real good mozarella cheese with tomatoes (sounds like we had almost the same dinner mariposita)
Snack - Ice cream (ughh my parents asked me if I wanted to go out to ice cream and I couldn't resist, its like my last day of summer though so I figured ehh why not)
Day was pretty good, I still managed to stay around 1100 calories
