Snacks : a handful of almonds and some fruit

Dinner : A large salad with avocado... Poached wild salmon and haricot vert with a Myer lemon vinegarette

Treat : A few squares of Green & Black's organic dark chocolate

Calories : 1800 approximately

Hey Trip! I love that Green & Black's chocolate, it is hard to find around me.

TripSwitch 01-07-2013 03:47 PM

Hi Shannon... Sometimes I wish it was harder for me to find... I swear that stuff just jumps in my cart while I'm not looking... Lol... :D

Monday came in fabulous at 1399, 50 calories under my initial target.

Today is going to be a challenge. DH and I have a movie date, so I'm likely eating popcorn for dinner. I've talked to our theater manager and they use no trans fat canola oil and use very little, we never get butter. Salt will be high but the rest should be manageable.

Tuesday Jan 8:
Breakfast - greek yogurt w/ honey and pomegranate, 1/2 nonfat caramel machiatto
Lunch - grilled chicken breast & grapefruit tossed in red pepper
Snack - string cheese
Dinner - popcorn
Snack - depends. May have alight dinner after the movie, may not.
Projected total w/o dinner after: 1055. This allows me some wiggle room for a snack.

Exercise - 45 mins elliptical, 10 min stretching, 5 min shoulder flexibility exercise already done!

TripSwitch 01-08-2013 03:21 PM

Hi everyone... Hope everyone's day is going well... I'm busy working from home today... So today is all about CONVENIENCE... So I'm ordering in...

Breakfast : No Breakfast... IF'ing...

Lunch : Take out assorted sashimi and seaweed salad with avocado... took the stairs instead of the elevator and ran out to get it myself, so 20mins of brisk walking and some much needed fresh air!

Snacks : Protein smoothie with some fruit and almond butter... Maybe a handful of nuts and probably another piece of fruit at some point during my eating window...

Dinner : Really big dinner salad (not sure what I'll have for the lean protein on it) from one of my friends restaurants very close by... the chef and I are on a first name basis, so he knows what I like...

Exercise : 30 min speed workout on the treadmill at home... 4 miles total... And I'll do a little yoga on my own and lift a few dumbells... just because they've been collected dust lately... lol...

Treat : I have some really good chocolate from Belgium that has been hidden away that has been calling my name since before the holidays... So I'll probably answer that call at some point later... ;)

Total calories : 2000 - 2200? approximately...

And because of my schedule today the kitchen will be closing by 10pm tonight... :)

Shannon, I'm a minimalist. I just bake the squash--no butter, nothing. I can eat it with nothing on it, too, but a little maple syrup is nice.

Lunch - grilled chicken sandwich
