Traveling today and then eating dinner with relatives tonight so this will no doubt be another MD, probably the start of my last MD-UD-MD-DD rotation of the year -- thank goodness!

Just coffee with a little light cream during the day unless I'm starving so I can attempt to eat normally at dinner.

UD for me.

Breakfast: rolled oat porridge with natural yoghurt (approx 200 cals)

Lunch: carrot and leek soup with oat crispbreads and Applewood Cheese (approx 320 cals)

Dinner: roast belly pork (without the skin), green beans, broccoli, and Chinese Cabbage with oyster sauce. (approx. 450 cals)

Well, back from the cruise; it was very nice! The food was excellent, but honestly, I prefer my meats to have fewer sauces - mainly because I KNOW what they put in all those sauces - flour and cornstarch!

So yesterday was supposed to be a DD, but we were getting off the ship and had a long drive home. I just wasn't up to trying to tough it out without anything, so I called it a MD. Honestly, I don't think I gained any weight on the cruise, but then I was pretty strict with myself. I DID have part of a serving of Warm Chocolate Melting Cake, but I always have that on the very last night (so I can't change my mind and have it again the next day! :) )

This morning, so far, it's only been coffee and almond milk. Probably will do one of those big oat fiber muffins, and not sure what else just yet. Still swaying at my desk from all the motion on the ship! :)

sophiethecat 12-30-2011 09:19 AM

FD until tonight.

Black coffee so far, my usual every morning.

janetsbreeze 12-30-2011 09:20 AM

B - Tea
L - Horseradich crusted salmon, roasted veggies
D - Not sure yet!

sophiethecat 12-30-2011 11:38 AM

Fried potatoes & ketchup, 2 eggs fried in coconut oil.

rubidoux 12-30-2011 11:54 AM

DD today. I've already had 3T of heavy cream for 150 cals. Gah!

Planning on shiritaki noodles fried up in a smidgen of coconut oil with some angle hair cabbage, and a dressing of soy sauce, white rice vinegar and splenda. And hoping to get to the store to get some fresh cilantro to top it off.

And a big serving of veggie soup.

Probably also a diet swiss miss and a couple of cups of tea with SF coffeemate.

julietcc 12-30-2011 12:26 PM

Free day for me. I took the boys to Denny's and ate a ton. I think this will be my only meal of the day. I do have a 9 PM event tonight where I might have 1 drink and nibble on an appetizer.

I ate all this :eek:: 2 eggs, bacon, pumpkin pancakes with SF syrup, hash browns, and biscuits and gravy. I'm betting 2000+ calories.

Actually just 1565 with my morning coffee! I'll be full all day.

vilanteira 12-30-2011 12:36 PM

DD for me, and I'll be keeping calories low in preparation for my New Year's Eve feasting tomorrow.

About 330 calories.

sophiethecat 12-30-2011 12:39 PM

MintQ8 12-30-2011 02:10 PM

Should have been a DD - but met with old friends for lunch!!

So - no brekky:
S: Small Skinny Capuccino
L: 3/4 of a nice pizza (parma ham, goats cheese etc) - and 2 slices of salami & 1 1/2 slices of parma ham - some cornichons & little olives + 2 Gluhweins
S: Skinny Flat White Coffee

I'm guestimating my day at 1600 eaten within a 4 hour period.

Now I'm basically fasting until tomorrow night - when I say fasting I mean that I'm having broth and one coffee or 2 (so about 300 cals or so). Then back to DD (I hope) on 1st! Last year was a DD too - I was in hospital on the 1st with double pneumonia!!

dasiey 12-30-2011 03:11 PM

DD I didn't do so good the boss bought pizza.
I ate 3 slices:o

and it was thick crust to.

dasiey 12-30-2011 03:11 PM

oh I will try again tomorrow

Alcestis 12-30-2011 03:48 PM

DD, and I have feasted today!!

B: coffee
L: homemade butternut squash and pear soup (150)
D: 1 tortilla (200) filled with 2 Laughing Cows (70), salsa (10), cabbage, celery, onion (20). Then I added an egg to cook with the remaining bit of cabbage, celery, onion stir-fry and it was YUMMY (90)

540 calories for a day that feels like it was filled with good, satisfying food.

KeirasMom 12-30-2011 05:39 PM

Trying a recipe for pineapple upside down muffins. Each muffin is 71 calories. I'll let you all know if they are good.

gharkness 12-30-2011 05:45 PM

Heck, I wanna know even if they aren't good! Maybe we can "help" :)

sophiethecat 12-30-2011 06:00 PM

Darn, wine + more candy.

Then I had a grapefruit and full-fat plain yogurt + blueberries.

KeirasMom 12-30-2011 06:05 PM

Okay just took out the first batch. The house smells heavenly. I had a little crumb to taste and thought it was pretty good. DH and DD shared one and give their nods of approval.

Super easy!

I'll post in the DD recipes thread too. The bold is from marniehodges on ************. I have no idea who the OP was because she reposted.

This recipe has been on here before but I thought I'd repost it for those of you who are new or didn't see it :) Took them to a "Girls Night" party and nobody knew the were "healthy"-they were a huge hit!

Pineapple Angel Food Cupcakes

1 box Duncan Hines Angel Food cake (add water only kind)
1 20 oz. can crushed pineapple in its own juice.

Mix dry cake mix and pineapple together (no water). Fill cupcakes 2/3 full. Place batter in fridge between batches and it bakes better. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 min or golden brown.

Delish and only 69 calories each, fat free! I put the nutritional content in the food data base under "generic pineapple angel food cupcakes". Enjoy!


I couldn't find Duncan Hines so I used Betty Crocker fat free, just add water cake mix and generic crushed pineapple in it's own juice. I got 30 cupcakes and it came out to (per serving) 67 calories, 15 carbs, 0 fat, and 1 protein.

I also saw someone responded they make theirs exactly the same but substitute canned pumpkin for the pineapple.

Beeb 12-30-2011 08:09 PM

The 3rd MD for Beeb this week and I'm glad the Holidays are OVER!! :p

I have decided to just post my calories/carbs for the day and will ask anyone who is interested in what made up these numbers to feel free to view my food journal for today in my signature. I'm being lazy today, sorry JUDDD BUDDDs! :o:)

Calories for MD today: 1043
Carbs for MD Today: 89.90g

emky 12-30-2011 10:39 PM

DD for me

B - 2 pieces bacon and a small plate of veggies with dip (350)
L- Salad with chicken. I used banana peppers to give it flavor since I didn't use much dressing. (250)
D- Broth (not counting)

Total = 600 calories

I'm not gonna lie; today has been a struggle. I've been having massive sweet cravings and they won't go away. I think it might have to do with the fact that I did have that martini with my friend last night. Either way, I've already taken a 5 hour nap and that means I won't be able to fall back asleep for quite a while. I'm *hungry* and majorly depressed :(

Tomorrow will be better, I hope.
