Menus/Planning #8
We were nearing 100 in the last one anyhow, so here's a new thread. Use this thread to post your plans for food or to be held accountable for your choices! We like to add points values to our food so that people browsing for ideas will have the chance to see if what we eat will fit into their points allowances :)

Jump on in! Let's get 2009 started right!

i'll probably make a salad here in a little bit to get in some olive oil. i still find it weird that i'm so under in points! i think it might be because the last time i was actually doing WW i had to eat 20 points (it was after i had been on it a while and had lost weight)

xdominic89x 01-07-2009 01:05 AM

I need to get back on track after a much not needed holiday eating spree.
This is what my menu looks like for tomorrow so far:

S - Banana - 2 points
L - Multi-grain sandwich thin, one whole tomato, tbsp mayo, cup of cottage cheese - 6 points
S - Orange - 1 point
D - TBD, a salad most likely to get more veggies in

probably going to have some veggie taco salad later (the one with doritos!) to finish up the points.

so far this week i haven't used any WPA's or AP's. it's my first week back on program so i want a whoosh! next week i will start using them. really, i'll have no choice because i'm going to two parties next week. i'll get to see how handy this set point thing really is!

So, yesterday (it's 2 AM here...yikes!) I had...

B: 5 grain oatmeal (2 points) 1 c milk (2 points-half in the oatmeal), 1 TBS cinnamon sugar mixture (1 point), 1 serving canned peaches (1 point) ((6 points total))

S: Salad with veggie salad mix (shredded carrots, radishes, lettuce, snow peas...) and chopped baby carrots (0 points), fat free italian dressing (1 point), and a WW string cheese (1 point) ((2 points total))

L: Wor Wonton Soup (4 servings of it and very very filling) ((7 points))

S: 1 c. red grapes ((1 point))

D: Lean Cuisine (3 points), Green Beans (0 points) ((3 points total))

S: 1 bag of Jollytime 94% Fat Free popcorn ((5 points total))

((Now, for dinner, I was planning on having the weight watchers salad from Applebees (5 points) and a Hostess snack cake for dessert (1 point) with 2 points left over for a snack later, but I was trapped home instead))

I know, my last snack was more than my DINNER, but I wasn't sure what else to do. I had 5 points left after dinner because dinner plans changed, so I just made the popcorn to eat while watching a movie.

Total: 24/24...first time ever getting 24 points exactly. I've used a lot of allowance points due to little mistakes in calculating points, but I'm getting there.

B: 5 grain oatmeal (2 points), 1 TBS brown sugar (1 point), 1/2 c. skim milk (1 point), 1 c. frozen grapes (1 point) ((5 points))

S: 1 WW string cheese ((1 point))

Sundays I usually stay after church and help set up for youth group. I get fast food most weeks, but I can never plan in advance. I know what I'll get if I get Mcdonalds, but for the most part I'm just not sure what I'm going to have. I'm trying to keep my breakfast lower in points because of that. And I normally have veggies or fruit with my snacks (with the exception of a "fun" snack like popcorn or pudding), but I'm eating the cheese at church so I don't have time for a full snack like I usually have.

sammi861 01-11-2009 07:48 PM

I started off good today but then had the munchies at the end of the night and sorta skipped dinner... oops lol

workout: -2
breakfast: kashi cereal (2), chocolate pudding cup (1), apple sauce (2), water
snack: ww fudge bar (1)
CLA vitamins (1)
lunch: chicken breast, bbq sauce, brown rice, spinach (9)
snack: 2 fiber one bars (2)
"dinner"/munchies: fiber one bar (1), ww fudge bar (1), 2 chocolate pudding cups (2)

21/22 probably won't use the last point

5WPA used out of 35 this week (new week starts Friday)

SignsofPoetry 01-11-2009 09:43 PM

B: 5 grain oatmeal (2 points), 1 TBS brown sugar (1 point), 1/2 c. skim milk (1 point), 1 c. frozen grapes (1 point) ((5 points))

S: 1 WW string cheese ((1 point))

L (s): KFC Chicken Breast with skin removed ((3 points))

S(L): 1 slice cheese pizza (4 points), 1 serving pretzels (2 points) ((6 points))

D: Chicken pecan lean cuisine (5 points), 1 cup frozen grapes (1 point), 2 servings green beans (0 points). ((6 points))

So, I was planning on getting the Roasted Chicken BLT Salad I read about on Hungry-Girl, but the local KFC doesn't have any salads. :(. So, I figured I would get original recipe chicken and remove the skin along with a side of green beans. They don't have green beans, so I just get the chicken. It was really my best option there. I am really disappointed. Besides, who here wouldn't want a salad with chicken and BACON that's only about 5 points with dressing (fat-free ranch)? I have to find a KFC that actually sells it!

I've gotta get the dining out guide at the next meeting.

chrgrl 01-11-2009 10:16 PM

i think KFC has a barbecue chicken sandwich that is somewhat reasonable...like 4-6 pts i believe.

SignsofPoetry 01-11-2009 10:41 PM

Yeah, but I wasn't going to spend the money and throw out the bun. I don't really like white bread haha.
