Default The let's Make a Plan and Stick to it Thread for Wednesday

Has everyone had enough of today? Did it go slightly off the rails somewhere along the way? Maybe, like me, you've been off the rails for several days.

Sturdy up your reserves and make a plan for tomorrow. Pack your lunch, get your breakfast all ready to go, choose what's going to be for supper. When are you going to exercise? Can you go for a walk after dinner? Before work? During lunch?

Plan it all out ... step by step ... there's less room for error!

I'm doing well today. In fact, for the first time in ages I have 100 calories left over so I'm going to have some fruit after dinner.

Tomorrow I'm planning on having cottage cheese and a Dole tropical fruit bowl for breakfast (this breakfast has helped me to increase my protein, which was getting less and less). For lunch I'll have a Trader Joe's salad with beets and goat cheese with some of their new Italian Turkey Breast (yum!) It's HOT here (about 85 deg.) so I don't feel like heating up the house by cooking.

I'll go for my workout at Curves in the afternoon.

For dinner we'll probably have some sushi.

Tomorrow's Plan - Do my cardio/stability ball routine in the morning, no matter how hard it is to drag my buns out of bed. AND I will do an UB workout, since I've been slacking on getting them done this month.

B - 1 c. oatmeal (1/2 c raw) with 1 tbsp fat free vanilla half and half and 1/2 c. strawberries
S - Orange
L - 1 can tuna, mixed with 1 tsp mustard and 1 tbsp trader joes lf parm ranch dressing, served on 4 ry-krisp fat free crackers with thinly sliced cucumber and microgreens. Sooo good.
S - 2 ak-mak crackers with 1 laughing cow light garlic herb cheese wedge.
D - Sort of a dinner crisis going on, as its girls night and the girls have chosen pizza and chocolate fondue...ACK. I WILL, however, make a big salad to go alongside, and have one piece of pizza and a heap of salad. When the fondue rolls around, I will have the fruit associated with the fondue, but leave the cake, pretzels, and etc, and will limit myself to 2-3 tbsp of the chocolate. And I am thinking, since I am in charge of making it, that I will use at least part fat free half and half in the fondue part so its not made with (eek) heavy cream. Need to research if thats going to cause consistency issues, though.

Wish me luck on the diet landmines ahead...

Actually I went below calories for the day, but I had to because my weekend was such a blowout. I look at calories not just day by day, but as a weekly whole. If I eat too many calories one day, I compensate the next day by lowering them down.

As for tomorrow, that's gonna have to be another lowcal one. Sooooo... I'm having a spinach salad for lunch, probably egg whites and milk for breakfast and I haven't planned any dinner yet.

Survived the trip to my mom's house in Texas for Mother's Day. Except for a fairly decadent, fancy, Mother's Day brunch where I took tiny samples of multiple desserts, I did very well.

I am still up 2 lbs from my Singapore trip, so my calories are a little lower than usual until I can get back down to my maintenance weight.

B - oatmeal, dried blueberries

S - plain yogurt, sliced strawberries

L - big salad, spinach leaves, sliced chicken breast, carrots, onions, peppers, cherry tomatoes, lite dressing on the side

S - orange

S - cut up veggies

D - 3 egg omelette (made with the extra Omega 3 eggs), shrimp, spinach, sun dried tomatoes, onion, garlic
