Hey guys! I'm still alive. I haven't had much time to post here lately or do anything "extra" these days. I've been trying to eat more like I used to, prior to gaining a few pounds and working out and have done well and even lost a couple extra pounds. I'm not sure whether I should still post here or not? I don't want to encourage anyone who is still "on plan" to eat something that I might have eaten or anything. I still journal most of the time. I'm trying not to get cocky because I have been down to 4 times a week working out and eating more/different foods and not gaining but instead losing little bits. I think it might help that I am incorporating extra weight training compared to what I used to do. I plan to get back to working out 5-6 days after the holidays and this crazy period in my life. I'm trying to catch up on everyones posts. There's so many, I am so behind.

Charlene,
Please still post here! I think even those of us not in acute need the accountabililty. Perhaps we could just put a heading on our signature like I have Now in maintenance and then people will understand that is why we are not always eating only 600 calories a day and why we are varying things up. Don't know if you got to read the posts about me having to put one of my 17-year old kitty's (Scout) to sleep 8 days ago. I'm so thankful I had this week off to really baby the other 17-year old kitty (Storm) and make sure he's adjusting, thriving. He's doing well. (Finished with students previous week, til next semester group starts). ..busy with grad school and other work projects.

Mary, you can do this like mashed potatoes too. My mom always makes them, she just slices up, boils them in salt water. Then adds the butter and milk. But, you could probably adjust a bit for medi, and use spray butter or something like that, and sour cream and half n half to blend it.


So, I haven't posted in a couple days, been crazy at work and with the holidays. I also haven't been that good either. I haven't gained any weight but I also haven't lost any. I'm also out of ketosis and feel very bloated. I'm very disappointed in myself. Everyone keeps bringing cookies, cake, pie, etc to work and I kind of keep grazing. And then on Saturday night my boyfriend ordered pizza and I broke down and had some too. Oh well, I'm back on track today and I'm going to get back to posting everyday. Back to week 1

Everyone else looks like they are doing good

12/13 planning;

B-1 egg and 1 egg white, 2oz turkey kielbasa, coffee
L- 5.5oz shredded chicken and Italian turkey sausage
D- 3oz shredded chicken with lite alfredo
S- laughing cow wedge 35

515 protein calories, total calories 605 and about 11 calories

We did low carb (sugar busters) years ago, and really never went back to eating all the high carb add-on's like potatoes, rice, or pasta.......at least not on a regular basis, so I only miss the potatoes in a few dishes. Bill did try mashed rutabagas a couple years back, and they were good (all though the orange color they turn when cooked was a dead give a way as to what they were!) I MAY need to try them again, since they are so plentiful right now

Mary - You're the first person I've ever heard of to eat rutabagus. Are they "like" anything else? In the turnip family? I've never eaten a turnip either! I'm so proud of your 5 mile walk/jog! I'm also envious that the weather was nice enough for you for that....I'm glad

I've been good all day Sat and Sun and got on the scales, had said initially I'd wait til tomorrow AM with a week of watching it (other than Friday's snack all evening fest at party!). I'm down 6 lbs in 6 days. If I were exercising I'd be able to lose a couple more, but now that project for grad school got turned in online last PM my attention goes to my HOUSE and decorating and buying for Christmas! I haven't done any of that! Then job this week....

12-12-10
B - Pure Protein Peanut Butter bar
L - 1/4 apple and 1 Tbsp almond butter
D - chicken sausage links and sauerkraut
S - walnuts

12-13-10
B - Jay Robb protein powder in water w/ 2 Tbsp crushed pineapple

My Mom used to make them, and turnips when I was young. Turnips are a little more bitter I think, all though I fixed some not too long ago, that were for the most part fairly sweet. I only buy SMALL turnips. Rutabagas are BIG (like the size of a softball), and are more like potatoes. I peel them then cut them up and add them to soup or pot roast. I do both of these dishes in a pressure cooker, so it only takes 11 minutes for the veggies to cook. Someone (on this board I think) posted a recipe for rutabaga fries but I haven't tried them. I will make the mashed ones like Kelly suggests. They turn a light orange color when cooked.

We walked again today and about FROZE! The cold front has moved in and we have very high winds on top of it. We walked 4 miles today (no jogging) all bundled up in layers, but with the wind the cold still cut right through us. The last 3/4 of a mile was walking directly into the wind (which had picked up a lot since we started) and it was like walking uphill! I doubt we walk outside tomorrow since it's supposed to be colder yet (hard freeze is forecast for tonight) I need to go move orchids, and staghorn ferns into the garage and potting shed, and add a string of Christmas lights to the potting shed for warmth! BRRRRR Had to turn the heat on today!


12/13/10

B-Coffee, TVP "oatmeal"
WALK
L-Leftover turkey Italian sausage with a few peppers, and onions
S-Chai tea.....I'm STILL cold
D-(planned) Chicken Leek Soup

Mary - I'm just not a farmer girl (!) though I live in KS (but raised as a military brat moving all over the world)....anyways....are rutabagus the same or similar to jicima? I'm in for trying something new, but I want to make sure it's like something I know about previously. Well, not really, but if I spend the time cooking it I want to eat it!
Your chicken and leek soup sounds good. I've never cooked with leeks either....isn't that like a cross between spinach and celery? How do you spice it up?

Rutabags LOOK sort of like jicima, but are not as "watery". They are really more like a potato only harder. I think Jicima tastes more like a water chestnut to me.

Leeks are like a mild tasting onion. They are bigger, and you eat more of the green top. You also have to cut them and wash them really well of you may end up with dirt in your food.

I cook chicken breasts, either with or without bones, in chicken broth until done. Then cut into bite sized pieces. Add the chicken, 2 stalks celery, 2 bay leaves, a little salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning to taste back into the broth, and cook about 20 minutes. I would think that on maintenance you could add barley (like 1/2 cup) and carrots? It's VERY good, and filling. Next time I might add a little cabbage

Exercise: speed walking around Islands of Adventure to keep warm...

I wish lunch had had more chicken. I didn't realize the chicken had been picked out until I opened it at work for lunch. Oh well..still tasted good. Publix sells pre-measured packages of spices for things like lime garlic fajitas, for those of us who get overwhelmed when it comes to spices. The recipie on the package called for Lime juice and OJ, so I omitted the OJ.

The almond bark was a recipie I found on the Medi site. It called for semi sweet bakers chocolate and almonds. All I had was unsweetened, so I sweetened/flavored it myself with splends, the splenda hazelnut coffee things and a touch of almond extract. .... It was ok. I didn't mind it, but that is because I haven't had the real stuff recently. My sister was not a fan.

Ashley and Kelly - ff hummus and veggie chips, there's something I hadn't thought of! Got to be careful though sometimes eating things like pepperoni, kielbaska, sausage (processed foods) so much cuz they can make you retain water. Just some thoughts to all of you, from experience...They are good sometimes in a quick alternative when everyone else is eating similarly though. (I say all this as I'm sipping away on my Atkins mocha latte shake on ice

Just some thoughts to all of you, from experience...They are good sometimes in a quick alternative when everyone else is eating similarly though.

Deb: I know thats what I've bee thinking about alot this week, I've been eating alot of sausage and kielbasa It's so delicous and the kielbasa is quick in the am for me. But, I'm doing grocery shopping tomorrow night and I'm going to try and think of some other meat options for me this next week. All that sodium isn't good for me.

Good for you Ashley for quitting smoking!!! Awesome!

Kelly, Would you mind telling me about your shredded chicken and italian sausage you have so often? I'm looking for something different and that sound flavorful and like the chicken wouldn't then be so dry. Do you cook them together? Do you buy already cooked chicken, or do you shred it yourself?

One of the great things about this site is that we can different ideas from each other, yet still be accountable.

Another breakfast or lunch or anytime option is Carbmaster's yogurt if you have Dillons/Krogers or other Kroger-brand stores around. Of the new flavors I like the pear, and I just add a tsp or so of slivered almonds to add more protein and make me fuller longer! Low carb and high protein.

Deb- The chicken and sausage is actually really easy

Ingredients:
5 links Jennie-o sweet italian turkey sausage (do not use your store brand, it's way more calories and fat)
boneless skinless chicken breast (I do about a pound)
2 cans of no salt stewed tomatoes
1/2 an onion
3cloves of garlic
Chicken stock (to boil the chicken)

chop the onions and the garlic, set aside. Start a pot of water/chicken stock add the chicken, and let boil about 15min. While chicken is cooking, heat another pan on med and remove the sausage from the casing and crumble into the pan. As the sausage is cooking I also throw in the onion and garlic to saute with it. Once sausage is cooked just set pan aside. Now, shred the chicken and add to the sausage pan. Then add your two cans of stewed tomatoes and let the whole thing simmer about 15-20 minutes until the chicken absorbs most of the juices. Since I'm still in acute, I take out all the chunks of tomato, but since your in maintenance you could probably keep them in. Then I just put the whole thing in my food scale to weight it out, and divide it by 7 to see how many calories it will be and how many ounces I can do each day. Generally this yields about seven 5.5oz servings for around 170-180 calories.

I really do love this meal. the chicken is so juicy and it really does have a lot of flavor, enjoy

Kelly - Thanks for the recipe! It is a non-dry way to eat chicken!

YUM this sounds great......I may fix this tomorrow. We use quite a bit of the Jennie-O Italian sausage....of course I like the HOT best, but buy the Sweet if the store is out of HOT. How did you decide on 7 servings?
