Fail. She slept clean through her first day. Some serious talking happening tonight I think. Evidently my husband says she left and went to a friend's house at 3 am last night...?

Oh brother, sorry Heather. That stinks when our kids make such bad decisions.

Well, day 1 is done. No extra snacking. The stupid Greek yogurt had 22 grams of sugar. I guess I'll be buying plain from now on and adding my own sf stuff. I did get plenty of protein in---not bad for day 1. I really need to learn the nutritional stuff better.

These are my totals:
Calories Protein Sodium Sugar
1,064 96 1,355 27 ACTUAL
1,200 45 2,500 24 GOALS

1. Frozen cherries!!! I put them in with the yogurt the night before if I'm eating it for breakfast. They thaw and get juicy and sweet but with no added sugar!

2. A question. Good job on the 96g of protein, but why is your goal only 45?

Today will be a better day. She was rather upset with herself and was crying when we talked to her about it last night. The oversleeping was a legitimate mistake, however the leaving at 3 am probably exacerbated the whole thing. She was "going to get her car charger" from her friend's house to see if it would work to charge her phone. Probably true, since her phone cable did break and she's the only iphone 5 in the house, but that doesn't make it acceptable OR smart!


I ran three miles this morning before work. 2.25 with Molly. Then because Tito has been so excited lately when Molls and I get ready for a run (since his daddy took him out a few times for a walk) I took him out for another .75 mile making my total 3 even. He had a HUGE smile on his face the whole time. Yes, really. Molly is focused and intense during her run with some smiling, Tito is happy happy happy happy happy happy! But, he's 7 and arthritic in his hips so his wakl time is short and limited. It's better since we got him on the Mobic though. AND since we got Molly and he has a friend to play with.

B - mint cookie protein
L - hb egg, chicken, chickpeas, tomato
s - apple or mint cookie
D - no plan, I had meant to throw some chicken in the crock pot this morning but didn't!

I like having my workout done so I don't have to worry about it. Anything else I do is gravy! I want to get back to yoga, I stopped when I was so anemic and tired and going upside down made me dizzy. It's been about 1 1/2-2 months now. I'm sure I've lost flexibility.

Tonight my son has practice from 6-8:30pm at the stadium and his first football game Friday night. He's in band. Nerd love.

I don't know---I put in my age and height--I'm short-only 5'2" so that's what it told me. What should I be eating for protein? I know my surgeon said a minimum of 60 grams. My protein shake gives me 30 a day.

My ds had his first senior high scrimmage last night. Friday night games don't start till next week. He couldn't play though cause he hurt his pectoral muscle last week in practice and has been working with the trainer with stretching and stuff. He hated not dressing and just standing on the sidelines. Our team did win though and I love that the coaches did put everyone in to play.

Yes, that's what I'm going to do although I prefer strawberries and blueberries.

Minimum of 60 and add more based on your activity, workout level, muscle needs and lab results. If I don't consistenly get over 120-150 grams a day my labs drop. My last result was barely normal at 6.2 because I have a lot of muscle and I have a lot of protein demands.

You want to get a good number during your active weight loss phase to prevent muscle loss during the fat loss.

As WLS patients, malabsorption or no, we should aim to follow our Drs guidelines... jmho. Of course, if my surgeon told me to eat 300g carbs a day.... I would question him. But on the 60-90g protein a day, it's not the most conservative nor the most extreme (protein power?) that I have heard... I go with it.

I don't know what I'll be able to handle today. Dinner didn't set well with me last night and my gut is still hurting today so food probably won't sit well today either.

B - mint cookie protein
L - I brought chicken, chickpeas, tomato, and a hb egg. I also brought a protein drink just in case food isn't appealing.
s - apple or mint cookie protein
D - no idea, something tasty I hope but maybe mint cookie protein

IF I feel better this evening when it cools down I'll go out for a run. I hope I do by then.

Weight is holding steady, no up or down and that's okay. It's catching up from the 6# I've lost recently.

B - mint cookie protein
L - I brought chicken, chickpeas, tomato, pepperoncini and a hb egg but have a backup protein drink in case I don't feel like eating
s - apple or mint cookie protein
D - something with ground beef

IF I feel better I'll go for a run tonight. I really hope I do!

I'm getting plenty of protein but can't get enough calories. I don't think it's that important as long as I get the water and protein, right?

Thanks. I'm going to try and do better as I learn more nutritional info and know what to choose. Right now I'm taking baby steps.

We'll see how I feel by dinner. I feel much better, I still have a little residual pain but it's more of a "soreness" now that the crampy collicky pain it was before.

Pushing fluids. Lots of iced tea so far lol.

I just bought my Garmin Forerunner 610. I've been coveting it and finally pulled the trigger today. Had a bunch of OT from the crazy schedule lately so I just bought it.

I also bought the footpod (for treadmill runs), a carrying case and screen protectors. I dropped some bank on all this.

Now I need to get some more running gear.

I think I'm also going in to get an upgrade on my phone finally. I've been undecided and I don't know if I'm going with the iPhone5 or the S4... decisions! I'm actually *still* undecided too!

Help me stock my work "pantry"

So back to school ~ any great ideas for food to keep in my desk or my mini fridge? I usually have greek yogurt and string cheese and water. Kind of boring. I did buy these packets of shelf stable hummus (68 cal./6 gr protein) at Costco. If I hadn't sampled them I wouldn't have thought they could taste so good ~ so I'm excited about these anyhow I think part of the problem for me is I would like some variety but I eat such small portions that things go bad before I get to them.

hummus is hit and miss for me. But there is a garlic kind I like to dip cheddar cheese in.
