New Orleans is one of my favorite cities, to the point that I contemplated moving there years ago (before Katrina), BUT you could not PAY me to go there during Mardi Gras!!

B: Everything bagel with cream cheese, coffe
L: Banh Mi with Sriracha
S: Quest bar if needed
D: ?? It's DH's birthday, but he's working out of town. He's hoping to be able to leave early today and be home in time for dinner, but if his case goes active (he's doing surveillance today), he'll stick with him until he's no longer active. Could mean he's not home until late, late.

Happy Birthday to DH, Dawn. Hopefully he can get home, but if not, I'm sure you guys will have something fun planned. You're going amusement parking this weekend, right?

L: Tuna salad
S: Apple
D: Vodka gimlet, beef stroganoff, Brussels sprouts and butter

Target: 1850 or less

Coffee-Lots as usual

Brunch Smart Ones Tuna and Noodles Au Gratin w/ extra left over steamfresh peas.

Dinner ? I bought a LaChoy Oriental Beef Dinner to try. I remember liking them years and years and years ago.

Snacks Bite of cottage cheese w/ AM meds
Toast? (It settles my stomach which is having an adjustment to JUDDD)
Plain 0 Greek Yogurt w/ a smear of SF strawberry jam on top.

All of that is about 1100 calories! So may switch things up.
What is with me and all salty foods? Most of the prepared meals are FULL of it plus I am drinking Bouillon on DDs. I May have to invest in a food scale and start preparing my own meals.

PS, we are drowning here in rain and snowmelt. Poor puppy, no place to poop. Standing water/slush EVERYWHERE.

Woke up with a horrible migraine today... I have a lot to do so I have to go to work ( wish I could just stay in bed).

Had a mocha with my migraine medicine this morning... Nothing else for breakfast yet.

sorenkkg 02-20-2014 08:45 AM

yep, I've seen them but not had them (king cakes)... I've worked in NO before Katrina, but haven't seen it since. Was in Baton Rouge a few months after IIRC... Actually, DH and I are thinking of doing an Austin/New Orleans trip this year. Just trying to figure out the best time of year to go (read: not too hot).

B: measured :) 2c of cereal, 1c of almond milk
270

L: going with work people. One of my most disliked people on my (generally awesome) team, loves this steak chain. At least they have nutrition info.
Explain how a SALAD has more calories than a STEAD :annoyed:
So the plan is:
Mixed green salad (the lowest cal one, seems ok)
8oz sirloin
veggies side
506cal

D: I've got a pork shoulder in the crockpot, will make pulled pork tonight.

12oz (?) pulled pork shoulder
4T of bbq sauce
2 LC tortillas
1/2c coleslaw
1033 cal thus far

I still have about 200 cal for chocolate :)

Aw, I grew up in Mobile, AL but never made it to NOLA for festivities because Mobile has its own. Actually, many Mobilians claim Mardi Gras originated in Mobile, not New Orleans... it's quite a controversial topic that I like to stay out of.

B - Bulletproof coffee w/ S'mores Torani SF syrup

L - Nothing!

D - "Date Night" with my sweetie....either NY Strip or Jumbo Shrimp with a big baked potato, and salad bar.

:hiya:
owning my choices today.

All was good -- breakfast to plan, lunch based on my research (plus a piece of bread, that I then added to my counter).

Then, I was watching the hockey game, and was mindlessly eating this really oily veggie/noodle stirfry leftover from our cooking class.
And some spaetzle.

So I stopped, counted those, re-jigged my dinner, and I should still be ok.

D: 10oz pulled pork (lean only)
2T light bbq sauce (20 cals!)
1/2c slaw
no tortilla, which is fine. I got some that are whole wheat and 100 cal each... funny, the WW ones are like -- 1 is a serving= 100 cal.
the regular ones are like 2 is a serving = 200 cal (i.e. 100 cal each). So I bought regular ones :annoyed:

DH will be home for dinner! :jumpjoy:

He has not yet told me what he wants, so I can't plan. I'm not too worried if I go over though, as I'm having 3 DDs this week. Big food weekend planned at Six Flags, but I can do 3 DDs next week again if needed. Have I mentioned how much I love JUDDD/5:2? :love:
