  • Sunday

    0730 Fruit tea to wake up with. Multi-vitamin. Anti-histamine. Joint mumbo jumbo pill.

    0730 B - 4 tbsp muesli, tbsp low fat cottage cheese, tsp wheatgerm, skimmed milk. Coffee w skimmed milk.
    *Have run out of full fat milk. Skimmed is just not the same in coffee.

    1100 S - apple, 4 walnut halves, SF hot chocolate.
    *I considered having 5 walnuts but thought that would slow down my progress. Good feeling.

    1200 Small glass of full fat milk to take ibuprophen with.

    1300 L - sardine al limone (this is a tin of sardines in olive oil with a slice of lemon), 3 oatcakes, salad (carrot, red pepper).
    *At the time, I thought I could have just had two oatcakes perhaps. Later, I realised that I was too full to need a snack at 1530. I only felt hungry at 1700 and by that time it was almost time for tea (made by the SO so I wasn't near any food).

    1330 SF hot chocolate

    1800 T - lamb korma (made with yoghurt not cream), brown rice and peas.

    All in all, a good day, if a little low on veg. I've realised that sometimes I eat very little wheat. Interesting as some people seem to be adversely affected by it.

    See you tomorrow.
  • B - 2 scrambled eggs, sliced grape tomatoes, kale, salsa

    L - the last of the white bean, kale, sausage soup

    S - small, home-made muffin (made with canned pumpkin and a box of spice cake mix)

    D - Pat & Oscars -had the small BBQ chicken salad (the website said 1/2 of a small is 320 calories - ugh). I got the ranch, BBQ on the side, no cheese and asked for the tortilla strips on the side, sprinkled on a few. Pretty confident I got the calorie count down to 500 or so.
  • Saturday -
    B - 1 slice WW toast with peanut butter and banana
    S - 150 cals of trail mix
    L - Asian Chicken Slaw from TJs (seriously. Obsessed).

    D - Homemade BBQ chicken pizza w/ whole wheat crust, salad w/ light dressing
    S - NSA Ice Cream

    Sunday -
    B - 2 sl bacon, 1 serving WW Pumpkin pancakes
    L - Popeyes (was running errands with my dad and he loves it there) 1 chicken breast, small mashed potatoes, green beans. I took off about half the skin on the chicken.
    D - Rotisserie chicken, 1 baked small Yukon Gold potato with 1 tbsp light sour cream, steamed broccoli, baked carrots.
    S - 1/4 cup homemade bread pudding (Portuguese sweet bread, egg, a little nonfat milk, cinnamon, some Splenda), 1/2 cup NSA Ice cream
    E - More running around, home improvement, etc. For all the exercise I do on week days, it's the WEEKENDS that really wear me out.
  • Next time I go to visit my DS I will have to try this Asian chicken slaw! I live hundreds of miles from a TJ's, she's 1 mile away.

    Monday plan

    L - sausage, white bean, & kale soup, salad w 1 T light dressing
    S's as needed - 6 oz lf yogurt, hm larabar, grapefruit, added Dr. Kracker cracker and 1 T hm hummus bc I was starving while waiting for dinner to be finished (ate at 8:15 PM - the horror!)
    D - change of plan - BF smoked a chicken so I ate about 6 oz of meat with no skin (did I mention I was hungry?), roasted brussel sprouts w 1 t. canola oil
    E - 40 minutes stairmaster, 2 mile walk with dog
