Height: 5'8


MMC - I have to know, what is avjar?


wt: 149.0


1: 1/3 c. oats w/ banana and walnuts
2: 3 oz. tuna salad (tuna, ff greek yogurt, red bell pepper, red onion, green onion), 5 small spelt crackers, small bunch grapes; 8 oz. kombucha
3: skim milk, 1/4 of apple
4: meatless thai chili (has quinoa, but very phase 2 friendly recipe)

exercise: 60 min. fat-burner class; 30 min. strength training

It's time to get serious again. Last week was a tough week emotionally and I ate my way through the week. It just shows that no matter how much weight I lose, I will always be an emotional eater and I have to strive to keep that in check. Thankfully the foods that I was eating were more or less on plan. This week, my goals will be: no snacking after dinner (even on plan snacks turn me into the snack monster. It is easier to say no the first time than it is to say no after I've had something); 120 oz. of water minimum during the day; vitamins and dry brushing every day!

Yesterday was a wierd food day for me, really high in grains and light in veggies, but I didn't eat anything that wasn't SB friendly, which is about all I expect of myself when flying most of the day.

Today was weigh day; I'm down 1 pound from last week and I'm thrilled! I did eat a lot more grains all week last week than usual and I'm pre-TOM, so I expected to be up a couple of pounds of water weight.

Sunday, April 3, 2011 (Day 36) - Phase 2

Breakfast: grapefruit; 1 egg; 1 slice turkey bacon; 1 slice ww toast; 2 cups coffee with cup 1% milk and artificial sweetener - Vitamins

Early Lunch before leaving: Salad w/ lots of veggies, turkey pepperoni and Italian dressing; 1 slice of leftover WW Pizza w/ Turkey Pepperoni, Mozzarella Cheese, Red Pepper, Onion, Green Olives – Diet Coke

On Plane - Snack 1: 2 T peanut butter on 1 slice WW bread with carrots
Snack 2: 6 Triscuts and 2 pkgs LC cheese Snack 3: Bloody Mary Mix and peanuts

Evening Snack at Home: LF Cottage cheese

Z-Avjar is a hungarian red pepper spread/tapenade. It comes in "sweet" (which is not really sweet) and "hot". It's 15 calories per tbsp. with minimal fat. I love it on top of whipped cottage cheese with additional hot sauce and avocado.

Even if you ate your way through last week, you still lost weight!

I did, which is a freakin' miracle, let me tell you. I chalk it up to the fact that I blew off steam at the gym before blowing it off in the pantry

Hrm. the avjar sounds really yummy. I might have to see if I can buy it, or maybe even make some. Thanks for the tip.

The weekend was a disaster from a nutritional and caloric standpoint. I am hoping it will function like a "feed" and jump-start a little bit of weight loss. A girl can hope, no?

Phase 2

B - coffee with nf milk. Uncle Sam cereal with nf milk. (Not my planned breakfast, but I am feeling like I'm coming down with a cold and that is the most on-plan comfort food I could come up with)
L - Fritatta with peppers and mushrooms. Side of pinto beans.
S - smoothie with yogurt, protein powder, peaches, spinach, psyllium husk.
S2 - 1/2 apple with peanut butter
D - Red peppers (smallish) stuffed with brown rice, spinach and feta cheese. Pureed cauliflower. Green salad.
dessert - sf pudding.

Tonight - weights @ the gym.

I love this stuff too! Trader Joe's has something that comes close - if they still carry it. Also, here is an article about it WITH a recipe - tho this might be a little different, since it is a Serbian ajvar, not Hungarian. It varies by country (and by region within countries as well). But all of them are good! At least the ones I have tried
