B - 1.5 scoop mint cookie protein in 8 oz water with ice
L - 1.5 oz canned chicken breast, 55g (1/4 c) chickpeas, 1/4 tomato, 1/4 avocado, 12 snap peas, 1 oz spicy red pepper hummus
s - apple or 1.5 scoop mint cookie protein in 8 oz water with ice
D - ?

HOT yoga. I have a groupon expiring this weekend and I need to initiate it so I don't lose the promotion. It's 5 visits to a localish yoga studio that does HOT HOT classes. And a walk with Lucy. The walks are usually short (less than 1/4 miles since she's a teeny) and are always slow because of her just learning.

I am eating a salad made with dark greens, a roma tomato, a tiny bit of feta cheese and olive oil/balsamic dressing ... I need to do this more often for a snack. I still have good restriction, so after my protein I can only get in a few bites of veggies. But if I make it as a snack I can eat a nice bowl of lettuce. And mmmmm turns out I must be craving veggies and good fats because this is the best thing I've eaten all day (including the one cookie I had today )

I had the day off so I planned an in town run for today. I was going to go when I dropped my son off at 630 am but I almost overslept and didn't have time to get dressed. So I dropped my kid off in pajamas and a sweatshirt. Came back home and took a "nap" lol. Went out and ran at noon. 3.2 miles. 1.5 miles in I realized my new ($10) running headband was gone so instead of finishing the loop I doubled back. Found it less than half a mile from the starting point. Crummy expensive headband that won't stay put!!

Tomorrow I have a 5k. Molly was going to do this one with me. This one and the next two. I miss her. She pushed me to keep going. Lucy won't be old enough to run for at least 6-8 more months.

Took her for a walk. She goes once around the block which is .4 mile.

b - mint cookie protein
l - spoon full of peanut butter. Potato chips. Salt craving lol.
s - mint cookie protein
d - sausage for the family. The usual for me. Or a protein drink? Not hungry.

Hi Everyone - Glad to hear about your running events coming up, Heather.

Jesse - I haven't been into salads much since my WLS, but I think you're right. I've had to start eating spinach (trying to make my blood thinner without meds right now...), and I've fallen in love with spinach.

For the past few days I have been eating spinach, salmon, a hardboiled egg, blue cheese, and a little ranch dressing. Yummeh. I'd eat that every day for a month if I could.

Because of my ulcer I'm really making changes right now. Pretty much anything I really like I have to avoid/not eat. I'm currently avoiding anything with pepper/peppers/chili, citrus, chocolate, coffee and tea, tomatoes, and have to really limit my butter and other fats. *sigh* I'm also supposed to eat lots of vitamin K right now, so I've cornered the market on spinach, romaine, broccoli, cauliflower, and hummus.

Despite being on only a full liquid diet for 3 days, I only dropped maybe 2 pounds. Maybe all the IV fluids will work their way out, but somehow I doubt that's my problem! I've started walking again - no running right now, however.

I'll get through this, darn it!

PS: I ordered ten pounds of peanut butter cookie protein powder. No cocoa in THAT at least!

Not unless they were giving you dextrose IV. NS and even LR don't Tammy contain enough sugar to worry about. It's just all the extra fluid adding fluid weight.

Back to back to back meetings today. Ugh. Also woke up late so I didn't pack a lunch. I always have protein though! So...

B - mint cookie protein
L - mint cookie protein
s - apple w/pb
D - ?

Doing - running or gym. Found out some super cool news. A smaller gym that I was eyeing a bit back is expanding into a HUGE building that used to house a grocery store that went out of business and they are putting in a POOL. They'll have a main gym area, a pool, 3 classrooms - one set up for "crossfit", and some other awesome things too. They aren't 24 hours like my current gym, but tbh I don't use it after "standard" hours anyway. They offer a lot more classes too. AND it's $40 cheaper a month for the family plan. $80 versus the $120 we pay now. Doesn't have tanning, but I don't use that at all.

Walked Lucy. Attempted to run with Tito. Fail. Tossed him back in the house after half a mile and finished the other 2.5 alone.

Man I REALLY miss my Molls.

Ditto - and it doesn't help that I can eat up that whole bag too. Which turns out to be hundreds and hundreds of calories that I really didn't need! I love cashews, almonds (the cocoa roasted ones, the brand without the sugar!), PECANS! But they add up. More than a dozen nuts, which is super easy to do, is way too many calories. And they're easy to graze on. I can't buy them.

Ugh. Went to get something for dinner and all my canned chicken was gone. Every last can of it. So I had my usual minus chicken. Added meatloaf instead. Ran two miles tonight. I'm training for a half eek!

I brought Molls home today. *cry*

What will you have access to for lunch? If you have a fridge and microwave you can pretty much pack anything you would have had at home, just invest in some lunch plasticware.

You should have my lunch choice memorized by now lol. Chicken breast sliced, chickpeas, tomato, avocado, snap peas and hummus. Adjust portions to your capacity.

B - mint cookie protein
L - tomato, avocado, snap peas and hummus. Forgot the chickpeas and SOMEONE at all my chicken (even my back up canned chicken!!!)
s - apple w/pb
D - no idea

Today's training is stretch and strengthen per my half marathon training plan. I'm going to do all the weekly trains, but just adjust the days around my schedule. Like Monday I ran 3 when it called for S&S. Yesterday I ran 2 when it called for 3. Today I'm going to S&S if I can make it to the 545 yoga class, if not I'll do tomorrow's 3 miler. I just check them off when I do them so I see what's left. Sat calls for a 30 min cross train but I'm doing a 5k race. Sunday calls for a 4 miler but I'm doing a 6 mile race (ack!!!!!).

The problem is that I have no idea. I walked into that office today to meet my supervisor but she was on a conference call so no go. I packed a Pure protein bar, a small bag of cocoa almonds and will take a big jug for water. I get an hour for lunch and it's close to everything so I can just get the grilled Chik filet (sp) chicken. I like that and it's a small portion.

I have a mini fridge in my room and I keep things like water, greek yogurt, slices of swiss cheese and deli meat, rtd protein drinks,string cheese and leftovers from dinner. Today I am lazy so I bought a large chili from Wendy's which will be tonights dinner and tomorrows lunch. In my desk I have some sliced almonds to pump up the yogurt if needed, to go packs of hummus I found at Costco, some lower carb crackers, and protein bars. I can probably eat from my stash for quite awhile if I don't have time to pack lunch. I know you probably won't have a minifridge, but you could store some of this in the break room fridge~ just about every workplace has one

I don't keep food at work. I do keep some protein powder in my desk preportioned. Keeping food that I don't need gives me leeway to graze since I have an issue with that. I just bring enough to cover my needs. Three and a half years out I know exactly what I need.

B - mint cookie protein
l - chicken,chickpeas, tomato,avocado, snap peas and hummus.
S - protein bar
d - lunch repeat

Last night I did an hour of power Yoga. Tonight is 30 min crosstraining per my half marathon training schedule. Friday is rest. Sat I have a5k. sun a 10k!

Google eggface bento box. She has great ideas, I have been using tons of them for my lunches.

I adore her chocolate protein bites.

My eating and walking have been ok. A week or so ago I was eating horribly and also not getting much exercise because I was sick, and also just generally feeling bummed. But I am back on the wagon.

B - SF Gingerbread Latte
S - single serving peanuts
L - Asian chicken salad
S - pineapple greek yogurt
D - not sure, the last of the pork I made and some cheesy cauliflower maybe?
