It's MONDAY! What are you eating?
DD--Easiest day of the week for me! :)
Will start with my latest treat-- a skim dry cappuccino. Just makes me feel like I'm getting something way higher in calories-- and is a nice way to get going.
B: Starbuck's Grande Skim Dry Cappuccino (93)
L: Large green salad with mushrooms, shredded carrot, cucumber, celery and alfalfa sprouts & fat free Italian dressing (98)
D: The usual chicken and broccoli stir fry (356)
Calories and carbs: 547/25
B~1 egg 1 white, scrambled with Green Peppers, Onions & Mushrooms, 1 Wedge Laughing Cow cheese (244)
S~ I am panicking a little. Just got a text that a friend showed up from out of town unexpectedly and wants to go to dinner tonight!!! AARRRGGGG. !!!!!! Hoping DH won't be home in time and we won't be able to go. Is that bad??
You havent eaten many cals...so you will have enough for a light choice on the menu!
enjoy your night...whatever you do!
I've had that happen, and I really & truly put a bottle of Kraft dressing (Italian, 15 calories) in my purse, ordered a big salad and plain iced tea to drink, and had a wonderful time at the outing.
It can be done. I figured it was just up to me whether I wanted to do it or not.
Good luck with your DD, regardless of whether you go out for dinner this evening or not.
UD for me! Am a bit embarrassed to post this :o...as I have nibbled my way through my calories...only one "proper" meal all day!
B- chai tea and 1/2 T cream, 50g feta, 1 small egg, 1 slice corned beef, medium tomato, 25 g salsa - 325
L- 60g cottage cheese, slice cheddar, 1 spring onion, chai tea & 1/2 T cream,

S - chocolate bark, 20g dried wasabi edamame, medium peach, 10 raspberries, coffee with coffee mate, piece sugar free gum, homemade apple walnut scone -542!
I am SUCH a picker! I used to have a fridge magnet that said "Fridge Pickers Wear Large Knickers"
Thanks to Juddd...this fridge picker is now wearing smaller knickers! :hyst:
60 net carbs
89 g protein
:hyst: That's what I'm going to say to my DH the next time I see him standing there with the refrigerator door open, picking over the contents to see what he wants to snack on. *Fridge pickers wear large knickers!*
Except that he's not overweight by more than a couple of pounds. And eats it all. :dunno: But I will say, he's an old fashioned eater, that is.. zeroing in on basic meat and potatoes, veggies and fruit, bread and butter and milk, rather than the packaged bars and snacks so much, so maybe that's part of it.
hello all I'm home!!
UD for me...
B-ham poached eggs and hollandaise w coffee (520cals 4 NC)
L-butter chicken (314 cals 8 NC)
S-choco peanut protein shake (320 cals 3NC)
so far...1154 cals and 15 NC
D- will be home made chicken wings...deep fried and in franks!
Hi, Nikki! That wasn't a long trip. Were you able to do pretty well with the calories? Sometimes I've had no problems while on a trip, and other times I just seem to forget what I'm trying to accomplish, and I go way overboard. :) Glad you're back.
Your foods today sound really good!
Hi Pat! Yup it was super-quick.
saturday I had a protein shake, left over pork and cabbage, road treats were HB eggs and celery stick, then later I had a steak and ceasar salad.
Sunday I had two protein shakes at 180 cals each (bought canned ready to drink so they were easy to pack) and coffee and water. Super easy while going and coming in and out of seminars all day then a 4 hour drive.
I think I did good but have no calorie count for dinner Saturday as it was dinner out.
Still haven't peeked at the scale since Saturday but am feeling more stable LOL and will weigh again on Sunday, giving it a full two weeks as promised.
Thank you so much for your support!
PS I can't seem to find a consistant calorie count for the wings I'm making for dinner, any hints for me??
Seriously, I haven't a clue. I always have to weigh out every little ingredient separately and then add the total.
Sounds yummy though. :yummy:
DD for me
Protein shake after my upper body workout this morning. 160 cals
2 salmon muffins. 160 cals
1 egg. 70 cals
Cut up zucchini, 1 cup broccoli, 2 celery stalks, 3 oz baby carrots. 100 cals
Dinner was boiled egg, 2 oz chicken over spinach, romaine, mushrooms with 0 cal balsamic
A little over 700 cals, 24 net carbs
So far today I've had 3 mugs of coffee with half & half (118 calories)
stir fry for lunch w/broccoli, onion, yellow pepper, carrot, mushrooms, and General Tso's sauce (135 calories)
Italian for supper w/shirataki noodles, shirataki yam cake slices, zucchini, mushrooms, and spaghetti sauce (123 calories)
snacks have been zucchini sticks for munching during the day (30 calories)
total calories so far: 406 - total net carbs so far: 45
Still enough calories left for an evening snack of something if I'm so inclined.
Well I dodged that bullet!! DH worked late so the kids and I went ahead and ate. I made a big grilled chicken salad with lots of veggies, salsa & light western dressing for 390 calories.
I ended up 634 for the day.
This is what my DD looked like:
16 oz. coffee w/2 tbsp. h/h - 45 calories
B - Protein shake - 90 calories
Lunch - tuna fish w/mayo, romaine lettuce, in a flatout bread wrap - 289 calories.
Dinner - Protein shake with 1 TBLSP. peanut butter - 190 calories
Total calories - 614
This is a higher carb day for me than I typically have on a DD, but, the carbs for the wrap were 16. It is higher fiber, so it is technically lower.
I strive for 500 on a DD, but, decided the peanut butter was worth it in the shake.
**Pat, I printed today's fit day sheet off.
DD for me today.
B: coffee w/ h & h, half of a blueberry sandwich thin w/ a thin smear of butter (103)
L: salad (lettuce, tomato, cuke, celery, red pepper, FF Vidalia dressing), FF hot dog on a slice of double fiber bread w/ lite miracle whip (140)
S: lite pineapple-coconut yogurt (80)
D: maple brown sugar oatmeal (100)
That's a total of 423 calories, and 61 net carbs, so I have room for a small snacker still if I feel desperate. Bring on the UD! (I set aside a small brownie today at work that someone had made and brought in to share...it looked so delish and I thought, "no problem, I can have this tomorrow.") :up:
So, how did you do that? I'm going to the site to look around. I never noticed that I could do that, but it would make updating daily food choices on our thread here a lot easier!
Pat - On your Foods Eaten Page(where we log everything in), there is a printer symbol in the upper right hand corner. I didn't notice it, my dh did :).
:hiya: Today was my first day and I am thrilled to say that I survived!:jumpjoy:
I ate lots of stuff, becuase I REALLY needed to feel like I had a lot to eat today.
B-Coffee w/4 tbsp FF half and half
pkt peach oatmeal
S-12 almonds and a diet hot cocoa
L-2 C homemade lentil soup
FF coconut-pineapple yogurt
D-4 C salad greens, 3 small tomatoes, 2 oz smoked salmon and 4 tbs FF blueberry pomegranate dressing
S-SF pistachio pudding made with almond milk, 1 C SF jello and 2 tbsp FF cool whip
I think my total was 870 calories. I'm not doing LC though. I am going to eat at the top of my calories on both UP and DD for at least this first week or until I settle in. The oatmeal was a mistake though-I was starving 2 hours before lunch. I will have to get something higher in protein for Wednesday I think.
Faithgirl: :welcome: and congrats on your first DD. I had one of those pineapple-coconut yogurts today, too. Lol. Yummers!
Hi, Kathleen! Welcome, and I'm glad to see you here. You're gonna' LOVE it! :laugh:
Looks like your first day was a pretty good one, and don't worry. They get a lot easier after a bit, and then - if you want to - you can even lower your DD calories to lose weight even faster!
Looking forward to having you post with us a lot. :welcome:
Kathleen, sounds like you had a good first day and like Pat says, it just gets easier and easier!! I actually look forward to the simplicity of my DDs now! :welcome:
UD for me and still not where I need to be in calories today. I planned well, with some "extras" for dinner but I had a later night then I thought I would with clients and ate dinner at 9:30! :stars: Just can't get more food in tonight before bed because I won't sleep well. :sad:
