Having a so-so day here. DH was up vomiting in the night. Apparently his system now rejects all forms of oysters. He had a bad episode last winter with some oyster chowder in a restaurant but we chalked that up to bad ones. Last night I made some pan fried oysters, which were good, but shortly after midnight he was rejecting them. Didn't get a lot of sleep. (The oysters didn't bother me, thank goodness)

B - oatmeal, craisins, walnuts, skim milk; toast;
L - a mish-mash of leftovers that were little bits, just enough not to throw out.
S - ?
D - homemade baked beans (been in the oven all day and smell lovely ) with turkey brats, salad

E: 30 min elliptical

Pat - Sarah is like that, but with large amounts of animal fat. It just gets toooo rich for her. She can't eat restaurant mashed potatoes anymore...they put so much cream and butter in them that even a few bites and she throws up all night. She has to order so very carefully now - no red meats, no mashed potatoes, no anything with a cream sauce or cheese. I suppose it saves her lots of calories to have to order that way, but I don't envy her when she is up all night. Hope he feels better soon!

I may have overdone the exercise trying to get the numbers higher on my HRM. Still, its nice to know I'm counteracting the holiday missteps with a good strong deficit today. Now if I can walk tomorrow I'll be golden.

Hmmm, I hear you on the exercise. I did some HIIT on the elliptical today, which I haven't done for several weeks - my legs be talkin' to me tonight..... Baked beans were good, but too salty, need to adjust the recipe.

Midwife, here you go. Keep in mind that these are not horribly low calorie, but if you leave off the salt pork/bacon, they can be non-fat. In my opinion, you can't bake them too long. We had them with turkey brats, and salad (cole slaw is good if you have a calorie friendly recipe - and in my case, if you have some cabbage I didn't). Brown bread (canned in the bean section, it's a Boston tradition) for DH.

Baked Beans

1 lb dried beans (I use small white ones)
1/2 lbs salt pork (I used 3 half stips of bacon)
1 TBSP sugan
3/4 cup brown sugar or 1/2 cup molasses (molasses for me)
1 tsp mustard - stone ground, or similar
1 small onion, chopped in small pieces
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup ketchup
1-2 tsp salt
boiling water

Wash the beans and soak for 12-16 hours (or use whatever method you like); drain the beans, rinse, and cover with water and boil for 10 minutes.

Drain the cooked beans, put into a pot, crock, etc. with all the other ingredients except salt pork and boiling water. Score the salt pork and place on top of beans. Pour on some boiling water, not too much. Bake covered at 300 for 6-8 hours, adding boiling water as needed. Uncover for the last 1/2 hour. (All that will happen if you don't is that they'll be really juicy)

Checking in late, but not doing too badly, calorie wise...except one dark chocolate ball. The good news - one bag is gone. The bad? There's another one!

B - Oatmeal from Starbucks w/ a half packet of the dried berry blend.
S - Orange
L - Leftover shrimp and veggie soup
S - Greek yogurt w/ frozen mixed berries, green tea
S - Popcorn (if needed)
D - Spicy Mexican Chicken and Rice Soup (Chicken Chili Colorado base, onions, zucchini, carrot, celery, jalapeno, brown and wild rice mix, topped with a sprinkle of light cheddar and a dollop of fat free sour cream. Yum!)
S - NSA Ice Cream Bar

E - 60 min yoga (about to do it, after I finish my tea), 60 min raking in the back.

I live in Woodland. City Motto - "The City of Trees". There's a giant oak in the church/school behind me backing up to my lot that is just DUMPING leaves on my lawn. It's been really windy the last couple of days here, too. I cleared an entire green waste cart of leaves off of the back lawn today...swept up the courtyard and back patio of their leaves, too.

HRM says 300 calories! (I may also have raked a bit earlier than I HAD to, so I could see how many calories it burned. HRM is a blessing and a curse).

I'm happy to report that my weight has once again settled back to Thanksgiving weight. Do not look at my stats--they are terribly wrong. I'll adjust them once I lose from that point--it'll take a couple of weeks.

Although I didn't exercise today, I feel my food is just fine for the day.

B~we were on our way out the door and I chose 1 oz of cheese to keep me going
L~chicken chow mein
D~ravioli with a large salad

I've done fine foodwise today - my parents came up for the last holiday party of the season, so I'm now officially done...

B: PB&J sandwich on NO double fiber wheat bread
L: ground white turkey chili with 17 oyster crackers & half a serving of sharp cheddar cheese
D: southwestern grilled chicken salad & fruit and walnut snack salad from McDonald's
S: kashi go lean most likely

Exercise: 35 minutes of strength training, 20 mins on elliptical. It was my first day doing an exercise on equipment in the garage with DSS here - he had to poke his head out once to see what I was doing then he settled back down. I think I'm now okay with moving all the rest of the equipment to the garage, too. It is just getting to crowded in the guest room. I'm thinking I'm going to give up my side of the garage so I can spread out a little...
