Good afternoon chickies :)

merose, Joyra, and JazzyPeggy :welcome2: aboard

MsPerception, wc to yet another new month for us! I think it's awesome that DH is eating healthy with you and his encouragement and support. I absolutely LOVE how you do not cave into those temptations placed on the counter by MIL, wtg!!!!!!!!! :high: Good for you chicky.

Jacqui, NSM, Delphi.......and to all, hi girls :)

Mystical, that's great! Congrats on starting the daily plate.

Not much new here girls. Getting geared up for our new month. Woke up to another muggy as sin day (though the temps have only been in the 60's), thankgoodness for the a.c (though none in this room). I will be planning my menu for the next few days. Have a great day everyone, chat soon :)

I am trying to make a menu for myself as well but I am not sure if it good. I am trying to stay with low calories I know allot about nutrition but for me to put it all together in a menu I seem to just go blank and don't know where to start. I want to put together 4 menus so I can just alternate them every week if anyone has any tips please help... Thanks

Newshinyme 06-30-2009 01:41 PM

Mystical: Are you just doing calorie counting or any particular plan like South Beach or what not?

FullSteamAhead 06-30-2009 01:56 PM

Mystical.....of course we are all different but for me, I work best in baby steps. Planning my menu 2-3 days in advance seems to work best for me instead of going too far ahead, but it may be completely beneficial to another to plan further ahead. My lunchtime menu typically consists of salad (with romaine, tomato, cukes, onions) with some protein in it like h.b eggs or chicken or turkey. I sometimes have a turkey sandwich on a whole wheat pita (with hellmans, l.f mayo or mustard). I like the thin and trim turkey from the deli. I pretty much stick with lean proteins for dinner....like fish, chicken (i get the roast chickens from the market and eat the white meat, no skin) or chicken breast cooked on the grill, turkey, and maybe beef once a week. THey are some of the lowest cal proteins and I like them (except for the lean beef which i limit). I have some veggies or a salad along with it and don't use butter but I use that pam butter flavored cooking spray. F.f it. dress. for my salad. I limit my cheese and eat the kraft f.f yellow american (which i really like but is high in sodium) and use it to make cheese omelettes occassionally for dinner. Now mind you , all this is when I am OP of course : ) . When I am not OP I tend to get lost in carb land.

Mystic, not sure if this is the sort of help you were requesting but I hope it helps in some way. OH I alsooooooo have a few healthy choices, etc in the freezer for back up! I have gotten sick before with TOM or something will come up and i cant cook....they have been life savers for me.

Good Afternoon Ladies :sunny:

FSA - :wave: right back atcha.

Mystical - have you ever tried the 1/2 vegs, 1/4 protein and 1/4 starch plate? I've just started it yesterday. You def have to drink you water. But it's pretty simple. Hope this helps :)


Wifey 06-30-2009 02:14 PM

I'm totally up for a July challenge since June completely passed me by! I have time to focus on my goals!!

July Goal - lose 10lbs (this will put me pretty close to hitting ONEderland!)
I'm also gonna make sure I drink a LOT of water this month!! ;)

Gekster 06-30-2009 02:45 PM

This really is a great way to keep yourself motivated. So welcome to the new people. July is going to be a good month, lots of people with positive attitude, yay!

FSA- The reward envelopes have been great for me, plus they were fun to decorate lol

NSM and SuzyQ - We will tackle this weekend problem together!

Mystical- I agree with the other girls, it was baby steps for me. I tried to do all my meal planning and it just fell apart. And having a back up like healthy frozen dinners and/or stuff you make in advance and freeze can be real life savers for those times when the day gets away from you and you don't feel like cooking. These ladies have wonderful advice, so any questions you have ask away.

Welcome to all the newbies! :hug:

Alright, Sandye has done it again. I'm tellin' ya'll she is one with the force. So she was all, oooooooooooo, I'm so far ahead of you...this morning, and I was like...that's alright I'll figure something out for our Friday Cleaning Challenge....and I did ladies...Oh yes I did. With that being said we have exhibit A...the mess...

So, I believe that is the equivalent of me pulling Sandye's pigtails and running like ****. :lol: I love it girly. You are awesome in every sense of the word. Thanks for continuously putting up with me and pushing me daily. Love ya!

The interesting thing about this, was I realized all the junk I had. Freakin' ten boxes of mac n cheese and all kinds of prepackaged meals. Most of that stuff I can't even eat and yet I put it right back up thinking at the very least a natural disaster could occur and we would have some high calorie stuff to survive on...eh?

At any rate, I'm pumped up for a new month with you awesome ladies. I think I'll go to bed early just so I can get started early. Haha! You ladies have a great evening. :) :) :)

mystical 06-30-2009 07:20 PM

WOW looks like I will be going throught the same thing in a few weeks but not by choice it will be moving day for me. July 24 to be exact. Tomorrow is a holiday so I am hoping we will cook something on the grill and just add some veges. I am so excited to be starting this new adventure in my life. You are a great group of people I am so glad to be here starting my new life tomorrow. YEAH!!!
