Default Staying On Plan August 8-14 :)

It's time for a new week of talking On-Plan!

Anyone, from any phase (1, 1.5, 2, 3, etc.) can post, and those who are new to 3FC are especially encouraged to do so!
This thread is for questions, sharing advice and strategies, and encouraging each other to stay on plan. It is not for chatting about daily life unrelated to this topic. Members have indicated that they would like to have chatting remain in the Daily Thread, so any posts that are off topic or chatty will be moved by the mods to the Daily.
Because people from different parts of the plan are posting here, it'll help everyone if you indicate what phase you're in when you post. Thanks!
While you may certainly find, from time to time, the need to ask for help after going off plan, remember that this thread is about staying on plan. When you share details of off plan foods you've eaten, it can upset, tempt, and otherwise frustrate other members, so please keep these details to a minimum.

So, share with us: How are you staying on plan this week?

I just have to share this delectable new concoction I came up with today. I'm glad there's a new thread now cause I didn't want to keep posting in the other one and clogging it up lol!!! Okay so I had listed my snack as celery with PB and some FF greek yogurt. Instead I ate a few celery sticks for crunch, then I took the rest of my FF greek yogurt (probably about 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup? something like that) and mixed in 2 tablespoons of SF natural PB, a little cocoa, and a little splenda.

Oh my GOD. Best thing EVER. It was more peanut buttery than chocolate. I am so loving greek yogurt.. you can make the most healthiest sweet snacks with it.

For my dinner I've made my own dressing for my big salad, I mixed in a tablespoon of sesame oil, with some rice vinegar, splash cayenne sauce, tablespoon lemon juice, garlic, a little salt, a teaspoon of Thai fish sauce for a yummy Asian dressing. The flavor sesame oil gives to things is soooo awesome.

I'm on day one of phase one today! I have been on the beach before so I know I need to be very prepared if I want to stay on plan. I have lots of groceries and a meal plan that includes many different foods to keep me from getting bored and/or sick of food.


B: Omelet with red pepper, green onion and a bit of cheese. Two slices of back bacon.
Sn: Celery with laughing cow cheese
L: Mock cornbread w/spicy beef casserole (recipe from this site) and side salad
Sn: Chicken coleslaw
S: Coconut curried chicken or beef stir fry with cauliflower rice.

Good luck everyone!

Chicks, I am sooooooo off plan it is unbelievable I have no diet in place, I really cannot control my food. I haven't binged eaten coz then I would just get depressed but I am not following the 1.5 phase and I think I have put some phase 1 lost weight back. I went camping over the weekend and this is what I have had for the past 2 day:


B - pear and nuts
S - pear and nuts
L - jacket potato with bolognese
D - fish and veg

B - Bacon sandwich (yes, two slices of bread) and an apple
L - a slice of cake
S - an apple
D - to be confirmed but I am home and I shall have veg and meat.

I feel extremely happy that I can eat a slice of cake and not crave any more and I feel happy to be free about what i eat, instead of picky but I know I need to get back on plan or stay on a plan that will allow me to not put on any more weight. That is literary all I want, even if I stop losing, I don't want to be gaining.

Hope, I hope you can get back on the bus now!

This is my second day on Phase 1. Day 1 was fine!

B - greek yogurt with walnuts and cinnamon
S - nut butter boats! I'd forgotten about them! (natural peanut butter in celery sticks)
L - grilled sirloin burger and salad
S - hummus and veg
D - mushrooms, spinach, onions and white beans, sauteed in olive oil (inspired by one of Cat's recipes for green beans that I found on an old thread. She described it with much more flair!

L: pinto beans, sauteed kale with vinegar, leftover potato salad(NOT SBD compliant)(and sorry if thats food porn to anyone!)
S: 1c almond milk, 1tbs cocoa, 1/2 banana, squirt of agave, ice(craving chocolate and didn't have any dark chocolate!),grapes, tofu

Phase 2 but this is more like a Phase 1 day because my 1 serving of grain yesterday left me a bit bloaty. Will have fruit however.

B- Coffee with some nonfat dry milk.
3/4 cup northern beans over 1 3/4 cup turnip greens. Seasoned with garlic and 2 teaspoons smart balance.

L- Big leafy salad with romaine, tomato, green pepper, sesame-oil/rice vinegar dressing.
Can tuna.

S- 1/2 cup FF cottage cheese with flax and small chopped apple.
FF milk as beverage.

D- Modified Crack Slaw recipe with chopped shrimp and lean ground pork. Going to stirfry cabbage and carrots & onions (and one beaten egg) in sesame oil, rice vinegar, garlic and fish sauce for an inside-out egg roll. (only not really inside out, it'll be more like a big healthy stir fry of egg roll stuffing if that makes sense!)

Looking forward to this meal SO much. Serving over brown rice for my husband and son, but I'm refraining from the brown rice. It's a problem area for me!

************ EDIT

I just did Jillian Michael's 30 day shred... I'm almost diiiiied but I made it through. I can barely breathe, I just collasped into this chair. Check ya chicks later!

Edit: Post workout snack was 2 tablespoons natural sf peanut butter and lots of fresh spring water. So I'm not going to have the flax seed with my cottage cheese. (I edit my posts repeatedly to keep accountability to myself, I find it helps me immensely. )
