DD Monday - staying accountable!
Had to go out early this morning and missed my usual generous input of H2O.
Returned with slight headache and, to add insult to injury, felt hungry. :cry:

So, as a preventive measure, I've just had some lunch.
I need to plan the rest of my day's food intake and stick to it, as I've a long weekend of UDs to antidote. :o

Lunch: 1 boiled egg with courgette spaghetti and big salad, dressed with pesto - 215 cals
Dinner: Cauliflower and mushroom curry, made with ff Greek yogurt. Plus more salad – about 200 cals
Supper: Strawberry and kiwi glucpud with extra strawberries – 100 cals
Tea and coffee – 90 cals

Total = 605 cals
Sounds such a lot! :cool:

Have a happy DD everyone!

Good morning Flossyliz! I unesterday when mornings don't go as they typically do. I prefer my DD's on the weekend as I can sleep in an average, 4 hours longer than I do during the week!


2 eggs, cottage cheese 180c
Tomato with cottage cheese 65c
deli turkey 50c

once I get home tonight, not sure......goal is around 600c

L: 7 Surimi Sticks, 4 Grissini
D: 'Fried' Courgette Sticks, 'Fried' Cauliflower Florets & FF Yoghurt mixed with mustard, chilli sauce & mint sauce (as a dip)
S: Cup of Tea & last bit of yoghurt

409 cals - quite a high day for me!

Here we are again at Monday....

B: Iced tea/water
L: Coffee/HWC
D: Not at all sure...

I've been having trouble knowing what I want lately. Weird. Whatever I wind up with, I'm hoping it will be under 400 today.

LiLi914 07-22-2013 10:31 AM

I didn't bring enough water to work with me today so I've been having a headachy feeling, but that will go away once I eat.

L: Yoplait greek yogurt and green grapes (130c)
D: Hummus and crackers (130c)

Hopefully will end today with 260c, but we will see.

I had an egg with greens this morning (100K) and am planning a salmon fillet with mayo later (133). Maybe a salad with some chicken. I am feeling the urge for protein.

ugh.... Monday!!! :p

I have been working like crazy lately and today's no different. I planned on a higher DD today, but, I need to plan it out here to be accountable and make sure I stick with it and don't turn it into a MD (or worse!) We got an email late last night notifying us of a big project and I started work at 5:30 am this morning with no end in sight. I work from home, and knew I wasn't getting to the grocery store at lunch as planned, so between the insanely long work day and lack of good food in my house, I knew today was going to be difficult to keep it to my 514 cal DD number. I think I've managed a plan to keep it low, but allowing myself up to my 35% range (905!) if I need it which is still in WL mode.

B: loads of coffee with powder creamer 50 cal total

L: Leftovers from yesterday's lunch- peppers and broccoli rabe sauteed in garlic & olive oil. I'm estimating about 50 cal worth of veggies; 200 cal of olive oil; and 90 cal for the bread I ate with it = 340

D: I am cooking dinner since we are going to the gym later and we always come home ravenous from a workout- 3 grilled fish tacos on corn tortillas w/ a mango/pineapple salsa

fish- 130 cal
corn tortillas- 120 cal
salsa- 50 cal
Total = 300

That is a total of 690. I can go all the way up to the 900 without derailing myself completely. So I am allowing myself to consider that 200 calories as wiggle room- take it if I need it, or ignore it if I don't. I'm kind of thinking the 3 fish tacos may not be enough after the workout, so I'm holding a 110 cal protein shake as dessert.

My First DD Officially
I hesitate but I will get my feet wet today.
Diabetic and pray that this will be ok for me.

328 calories thus far according to "My Plate"

1 c. beef broth
2 coffee with 1 tbs. HWC and SS
1 c. steamed broccoli
1/2 c. steamed spinach with 1 tsp. butter
1 egg and 1 egg white omelet
4 cherry tomatoes

For later:
I am mulling this over.
Will be back: :newbie:

Kissa 07-22-2013 03:51 PM

Barbo, how lovely to you here.

2 iced black coffees
1 small glass rosé
small salad with 70g salmon

Under 400 :)

Barbo 07-22-2013 05:03 PM

Thanks Kissa
So far so good.

I'm going to take my blood sugar in a few moments.
That will tell me how I'm doing.

Still mulling over dinner. I think a home made veggie/beef soup
would be filling. Would like to have a J.Robb shake too. Will have to
consult with My Plate.

Thanks for the welcome Kissa.

631 total
With the addition of 1 Hood Dairy chocolate milk with 2 tbs. J Robb PP
2 c. beef broth, shredded carrot, green onion, shredded cabbage,
fresh green beans I totaled 631 for my first DD.

in So. Cal.

I weighed in today.

Here's how it comes out:

Starting Weight 225
Lost down to 150
Gained up to 170
Lost down to 161 as of 7/22/13

Still only had liquids today, and probably won't have the yogurt. I am drinking the most delicious coffee right now! I bought it at Target. Archer Farms Coconut Macaroon. Yum!
