UD Thursday - what's on the menu?
 
Howdy folks!

it's 11:24am and I've not eaten yet... or had my vitamins or water or anything. Just got up and started working!

I haven't thought about today, but something like:

L: eggs and toast or cereal w/almond milk
S: chicken thighs leftover from yesterday
D: maybe cauliflower crust pizza? Not sure what toppings I have in the house..

Will update later! Gotta babysit the worst online presenter I've ever heard :(

I guess our early morning folks from the UK weren't up yet? ;)

I start each day with a trip to the JUDDD section, and then I do a "find in page" i.e Ctrl+F to find that day's name... Thursday.

sometimes I find 2 already (ud and dd) and sometimes just 1, and usually the opposite of whatever I was looking for :dunno:

thought it was great yesterday when I could only get here at the end of the day and the DD post was sooooooo long! I can FEEL the mojo coming from everyone and merging right here!
:jumpjoy:
***************

I had my 3 eggs, some margarine, 2 slices cheddar cheese, 2 slices low carb toast (60 cal per slice, and it doesn't taste weird! it's 2g per slice net carbs too)

and I used some basil from my indoor garden, which was a thing in the kitchen reno my hubby wanted to make sure I got (and then left it to me to figure out the lighting, etc :p )

YUM!

Oh, and dinner might be pork chops and pierogies... happy to have options!

So far I've had coffee with SF creamer and a banana.

I think lunch will be a 6" sub again. Dinner will be pork chops, sauerkraut and dumplings, yummo! :yummy:

I am never an early riser if I can avoid it, lol.

Unusually I had an urge to eat before the gym this morning, so I did.

B boiled egg, coffee with skimmed milk
S 2 soya flat whites slice of cranberry bakewell tart
D lamb steak with roasted butternut squash etc, garlic spinach

red wine. :)

B - Coffee w/ cream, 1 slice whole wheat toast, peanut butter and a small banana (and I NEVER eat breakfast! Ha! well, never say never?:dunno:)

L - probably will skip it

D - Salmon, brown rice, Brussel sprouts with butter, maybe coleslaw, some red or white wine (depending on what I find on sale at the store) and maybe a brownie for dessert.

I'm going to just enjoy my UD, try to stay at 1800 calories or a bit over, and be happy!

1:30 pm. Steel oatmeal and raisins soaked over night in Greek yoghurt.
Had to add coconut butter and Ghee it just needed something. But turned out tasty.
Dinner? Pizza? will pass on birthday cake, I'd rather have pizza!
Afraid to eat sweets right now, hang over from holiday goodies maybe.
A 5 day

Lemontini 01-09-2014 01:18 PM

Lunch was a bagged lite caesar salad, it was on sale for .99 at the grocery store. No brainer! Had a small handful of cocktail peanuts as a snack and will have a glass of vino after dinner, plus a slice of apple pie. That puts me right around 1900 for the day which is what I was shooting for.

Kissa 01-09-2014 01:18 PM

Oh yes, pizza over cake any day, especially today.

jdforshort 01-09-2014 02:09 PM

B-Cabbage omelette tortilla wrap and coffee
L-Turkey bolognese, cottage cheese with home made yogurt, English Tea
D- ??? nuts for sure and milky tea

P.S.I am trying to see if I can combine carb cycling with JUDDD. Yesterday was no (<20) carb day, today low (<75) carb and tomorrow will be all out carb DD. We'll see how it goes.:dunno:

OMG my steel cute oatmeal lunch read in at 475 cal. Gosh it was a normal amount not jeffrobodean size at all.
No biggy just surprised. Raisins are killer in calories.

sorenkkg 01-09-2014 08:46 PM

I was having muesli, which is soaked oatmeal and nuts and fruit, and omg, huge calories. Satisfying, but looks small, so you can easily overeat and not realize it BC its yummy.

I ended the day a bit high again, only 400 over this time :doh:

Dinner was a big pork chop, and 6 potato pierogies. With browned onions in butter, mixed into sour cream.
:yummy:

Finished my marzipan bonbons too.

Onward! I have my black tea picked for tomorrow, ready for another great dd!
:D

If you guys soak your oats they will get huge and it will look like you are eating more than you are.
I have been having oatmeal on UD's for breakfast and made it over the weekend. Soaked 1 cup in 1/4 cup greek yogurt and 1 cup water overnight on the counter, then added 1 cup almond milk the next day and heated it until warm. Added it back to a container and it got even thicker. So now I just take out 1/2 cup cooked, which is only about 120 calories, then add more almond milk or coconut milk, 1/4 cup of greek yogurt, 1 or 2 T of PB2, 1T chia seeds, 1T raisins or craisins and 1T hemp seeds. Its about 350 but it is a huge bowl!!! I make it the night before and let it sit all night. Nice and thick and yummy!! I also eat it cold. I even add some nuts and the calories are still ok. I take it to work for UD breakfast. I am loving it!!!
That is what I had yesterday for breakfast'
had a boiled egg for a snack
lunch was homemade stir fry cooked with turkey and low fat cream cheese and some other stuff. Made a nice creamy casserole for UD lunches.
Dinner was salmon and steamed veggies
Also had about 3 cookies!!! They had them at work! I hate that but they were good!!!

I finished out at 2172 cals, but I actually did it on purpose. I realized I wanted to vary my calories to keep my body guessing, and so I had 3 oz of PB after dinner. Satisfied me and mentally I'm visualizing, stoked my metabolism.
