Hi - I wanted to stop by and say HOWDY!

I like your thread

I've been struggling, and thought it wise to re-connect on 3FC. Not sure to what extent - but I'm hanging for the moment.

Missing some of the ol' gang.
Hope you are well-
G

Hi BW Great to see you! I'm struggling too. 3FC really anchors me, even if it's just reading. I've been a little over busy now, and my outlet has been food. I think I'm ready to come back to earth and start eating better. Nothing like a tight bra to get one motivated Are you back from traveling? Some new travels on your horizon? I hope you post on 3FC again, and look forward to hearing your news if you do.

I'm still limping along and eating my stress. My caregiver situation has escalated but there is progress. So many things are cropping up, and in my own infrastructure as well. I will henceforth cherish the dull routine times. I realize I need to deal with the eating now, not wait for life to settle down. I am not fully committed, but putting a toe in the water today. At least the carb load is improving sleep a bit.

Plan
Breakfast tomato omelet, splash of protein shake/coffee
Lunch salad with veggies, chicken, oil/vinegar
Dinner chicken, roasted cabbage
Snack protein bar Will add in a carb snack in the evening, maybe a yam

Picking up momentum. A good day, then 1 that wasn't so good. Yesterday was low carb, calories on the high side. I'm focused today with a plan, low carb, low cal. Let's see if I can stick to it under trying circumstances.

Still have my work cut for me with cutting cals. Carbs are nice & low, and that is a good appetite suppressant for me.

Yesterday went well. I had planned eat 1000 cals of protein bars. I stayed low carb but needed extra food to dispel the mental fog during my extra long work day.

Today is the same situation. My moodiness suggests I am burning through glycogen stores. Looking forward to a relaxing catch up day tomorrow, and ratcheting down the calories.

Early day, another outdoor adventure.
B B-up bar, coffee & protein shake

EDIT I got a lot of exercise climbing around the rocky shore, and that felt great. I derailed myself by thinking I could have extra carbs. Crab salad sandwich by the ocean, very fresh. And that was a slippery slope to eating way too many calories.

This last week has been mixed, which means maintaining. I'm low carb but still eating a lot. Stress, boredom, habit, but no cravings. Things are a little calmer in my life and I see a window of opportunity to focus my energy on my goal of getting back my healthy eating habit, and fitting into my clothes.

Today:
B Baked egg white with pizza seasoning & veggies, a little ground turkey. Protein shake splash in coffee
L Big salad with veggies, chicken breast, evoo added to 0-cal dressing
S Protein chips and mockamole-yum
D great big turkey burger, made from ground turkey that I bought already seasoned. It was so good, it felt like a treat. Roasted cabbage 'steaks'

Calories are 1016, carbs 42. + 1/2 jar of Walden Farms chocolate dip = a few more cals & carbs

There is still time to get into evening snacking, but I am resolved to hold the line. I got a reality check at the store today, buying a few things for a camping trip next week.

It was nice to wake up with hunger, rather than still satisfied from evening eating. It's tricky to eat enough with getting hungry later in the morning, and then all day long. A morning bird count hike added a variable to the mix.
B Egg white bake with pizza seasoning & veggies, ground turkey, splash of protein shake/coffee
S Roasted Brussels sprouts, mockamole, protein chips
L salad with veggies & chicken, evoo-based dressing
D will be the yummy turkey meatloaf burger with roasted cabbage. Something with portabello mushroom that isn't cheese.

Calories 1300 carbs 55 A little on the high side---cooking for the week and tasting it all.

Woke up before 3 am and felt like it was time to eat breakfast, which I did, and went back to sleep. Long work day, bring it on.
B (in the wee hours) egg white bake with pizza veggies and sauce
B 2 cups coffee with protein shake/cashew milk
S protein chips and mockamole, which tastes so much better with the squeeze of lime
L salad with veggies, chicken, HB egg, evoo & 0-cal dressing
D turkey burger, Brussel's sprouts, butternut squash fries (baked, from TJoe,s)
S protein bar, last of the roasted cabbage

Total 1250, carbs 55

I've been eating low carb but again too many low carb calories. Last day before vacation, and will see if I can wind down. Menus has been consistent with addition of extra protein snacks.

Back from vacation. Lots of hiking, no snacking. But reverted to my typical end of vacation overeating on the last day & day of return. But feeling refreshed and ready to start again.
B English muffin with chicken & homemade walnut pesto. Coffee with cocnut milk. They have discontinued my whey protein lightener. Trying what worked well on vacation, 3 good sized meals and a bedtime snack.
