Default Planning for Wednesday, Dec. 6

Score another good day for me on Tuesday! I even talked myself out of going back for seconds at dinner since I made a whole box of spaghetti, mixed in a bag of frozen thaw-and-serve shrimp, a jar of marinara sauce, and a tub of bruschetta--SO YUMMY! But as I sat on the couch contemplating a second plate full, I waited a few minutes and thought about if I was really actually hungry or not. I wasn't Now there's enough leftover for Jeff ot have lunch for the rest of the week!

I didn't get any exercise in--slept in in the morning because I had an awkward sleep schedule last night, so I planned to exercise after work, but then I ended up working late. I plan to do an hour on Wednesday morning to make up for it.

Here's Wednesday's food plan:
  • smoothie - skim milk, banana, vanilla protein powder (I didn't even need this for the protein today since I hit 100g even before I added in breakfast, but it's just SO YUMMY!)
  • 5 breakfast turkey sausage links
  • yogurt
  • salad - lettuce, mango, almonds, tomato, chicken, TJ's dressing
  • chicken w/salsa, corn, black beans, and cheese
  • baked chicken breast and vegetable wontons
The above comes to about 1530 calories and 146g protein.

Ok so this morning was an exercise bust for me because I had work that I didn't do last night (ARGH) and I'm kinda feeling under the weather. Tonight will be the gym for leg work and then back home for arm work and abs.

B - 1 cup skim milk
1 apple
1 banana

L - 1/4 cup brown rice + roasted bell peppers and potatoes
1 8 oz container plain ff yogie

S - Hmmm...I ate one too many chinese buns yesterday so I don't know if I should have a snack or not. We'll see. I'll probably have leftovers from last night's dinner - was too full to finish.

D - I dunno. Maybe roasted chicken drumsticks? Or spaghetti. Either or.

I am completely bummed this week since I sprained my ankle last Friday while running in new shoes. I haven't been able to do any cardio but I when I go home tonight I will pop in a pilates tape and at do as much as possible without straining my ankle. It is so hard to take a break from working out when you have gotten into a set schedule. I know this sounds stupid but I am so freaked out that the pounds will start piling on and I will get out of shape... Anyways I am trying to keep my calories really low since I am not really doing anything to create a serious burn...

B: 6oz yogurt (80cal), 1 med apple (80cal), lg coffee w. splenda and splash of half and half (40cal)

L: 3oz tuna (90cal), mixed vegies w. sprinkle of light parm cheese (125cal)

S: baby carrots w. 1T hummus (75cal)

D: 4oz ck breast (175cal), mashed butternut squash (75cal)

S: f.f cottage cheese w. pumpkin and splenda (200cal)

Workout: 1hr pilates video

Yogachick - I'm with you on the fear of lbs piling on!! I FREAK OUT when I see 165 (even if I know it's water and I weighed myself right after eating breffix because I'm a fool or a masochist)... don't feel bad. There's more than just you and me because I've read posts on here similar to ours.

At least you're curbing your calories. I was just uber hungry and ate 600 cals of mini vanilla creme cookies...

Anyway, I plan on doing strength training tonight, so hopefully that 600 will drop to 400 total extra...hopefully

whoops...I just looked at my Fitday and discovered that I hadn't entered in the chicken in my salad for yesterday or today That puts me up into the 1900s for yesterday calorie-wise. As for today, I added in the chicken, but then I didn't eat the rest of the salad (just wasn't in the mango-and-tomato kind of mood), so I took out most of the dressing, mango, almonds, and tomato, which lowered my calories a bit for today (especially by reducing the almonds, since those little babies really pack a caloric punch!).

Anyway, as long as I keep eating according to plan for the rest of the day, that brings me to about 1375 calories and 156g protein (47%).
