Yesterday was...OK except lunch, which wasn't so bad in perspective.

B - Buckwheat pancakes, homemade berry sauce, turkey bacon
L - 1/2 small cheeseburger, half chicken teriyaki sandwich, half an order of garlic fries, half a side salad (I ordered the sandwich with the salad, Sarah ordered the small cheeseburger with the garlic fries, and we split everything).
S - Apple with peanut butter

Today's plan is kind of loose because I have to go to the dentist and get a cavity filled (ick). I'll have an apple beforehand, a can of soup or some tuna for lunch. Then my family (I'm working there today, because that's where my dentist is) is meeting up with Sarah (who is coming to retrieve me) for dinner. I'm pushing for Fresh Choice over Olive Garden...we'll see.

OMG Amanda, I would die for a cheeseburger and garlic fries right now.

I have a feeling I might be making makeshift burgers and fries for dinner . . . Where by "makeshift burgers" I mean mashing up a can of black beans into patties, not having any cheese, and putting it on ww bread, because I have no meat, cheese, or buns in the house. That might not satisfy my sudden burger craving.

Sorry! But it was really good. We had just gone to the shooting range and there's this dive bar/grill right outside...I walked in and REALLY wanted a burger. So we split, which is our solution when we don't want to splurge RIDICULOUSLY but still want a taste of the higher calorie stuff...one healthy choice, one less-healthy choice, split in half. It's great because I get a -taste- of fries (my portion ended up being maybe 10-15 fries total) and burger, but then have the bit of vegetable as well.

Mmm, burger... (my chicken on pita that I just ate was pretty cold, not very satisfying on this chilly day). French fries. YUM! Hope the dentist isn't too traumatic Amanda.

Play rehearsal every night, except for Wednesday, b/c I'm not going to rehearsal b/c I have to present a research seminar I organized. BUSY week! Yesterday I cooked up dinners for the next 4 nights and roasted chicken for sandwiches, cut up veggies, etc. My fridge is a sea of tupperwares. Here's my plan for the next 4-5 days:

B (Thursday or when the lox runs out) - hm protein pancake, 1 c. skim milk, coffee w/ 1 T. h&h

I was perfectly on plan all day.

And!

Wait, are you guys sitting down? I mean, you're probably sitting down since you're at the computer, but hey you could be reading 3FC on your Blackberry or something. In that case, you better find a spot to sit down.

I worked out! I ran on the treadmill! 2.5 miles, 253 calories burned! I'm sure I'm going to be sore tomorrow, but yay me!

Wow, knowing how much you don't like exercise Glory, that's great!

I was almost perfect with the plan, and I was still within my allotted calories, so I'm calling it an OP day, which I finished off with 1/2 hour on the elliptical. Let's see about tomorrow....

B - oatmeal w/blueberries, walnuts, skim milk; toast;
S - HB egg
L - turkey sandwich on a ww wrap, with lettuce, "roasted" peppers (a 3FC recipe), mustard, smear of mayo
S - applesauce with flax seed
D - leftovers from the weekend, as I have to go back to town for a 7pm city council meeting, so "heat and eat" is the order of the evening.

Great job on the workout Glory!

My cals were a little high yesterday, but for once I actually went on my run. 5k! Not at the speed I'd like, but I did it, and that was the first time I've run 5k since before my thyroid messed up my knees. Woohoo!

Tuesday:
B - oatmeal, just fruit munchies, raisins, tsp brown sugar, milk
S - banana
L - leftover chili, corn muffin
S - apple, yogurt
D - plan is for moroccan chicken thighs
Total - 1649
Exercise - plan is UBWO/LBWO, probably Gilad.

I did NOT want to get up and run today. I wondered if it was possible to die from being tired. I got up anyway. I got dressed. I got in the car to drive to meet my friend. I was freezing. I thought about Pat and Alaska and told myself I was not freezing. I told myself I was lying about not freezing. I argued with myself about freezing being a subjective experience all the way to meet my friend. We ran. I argued with myself about doing sprint intervals and pointed out to myself that I was tired, cold, and my throat was scratchy. I decided to do a tempo run instead and.....I ran 3.5 miles in under 30 minutes which is like a world record for me! So, now I'm glad I did it.

Go Glory!!!

Exercise--done!

Food:
oatmeal with protein powder, blueberries (frozen!) and walnuts
cottage cheese, blueberries
turkey wraps on flatout bread
hardboiled eggs, apple
dinner--??? 2 meetings tonight....maybe eggs & spinach

ETA: Scale this am 152.5

Yay Glory! Dontcha just love the treadmill? (I do--isn't it obvious?)

E~45 minutes treadmill (380 calories burned)
B~rice chex, banana, skim milk (guessing about 300)
S~grapefruit (100)
L~diet entree, clementine (250)
S~yogurt (70)
S~carrots & pea pods if necessary (50)
D~egg-white egg mcmuffins on ww, melon, perhaps hash browns (500)
That works out to 1270 less the workout puts me at 890 net. Oh, but I have to add in my vitamins and such (3 fish oil = 30 and Benefiber in my coffee is about 20). Add about 50 calories to the total, so 940 net (give or take a few).
