BLC20 - Weekend 8 Challenge

Sunday, November 04, 2012

Make a meal plan & exercise plan for the week:

Today I made Kamut Pasta w/Tomato Veggie Meat Sauce for dinners this week, which I'm planning on having with a salad and a glass of milk each night.

I also made Gingery Carrot Soup w/Orange and Parsley that I'm going to take to work for lunch this week.

For exercise this week, I'm planning on doing exercise DVDs in the morning before work and if the weather stays dry, I'm hoping to walk at lunch time each day. I have my iPod charged up in case I have to walk alone.

Here's the schedule:

SUNDAY
- exercise is a ST DVD and bed yoga
- breakfast is PB and honey on toast w/tea
- lunch is Gingery Carrot Soup and a glass of milk
- snack is mushrooms and celery w/hummus
- dinner is the pasta I made

MONDAY
- exercise is a cardio DVD
- breakfast is PB and honey on toast w/tea
- snack is yogurt and fruit (apple, pear or grapes)
- walk at lunch time
- lunch is low-fat cottage cheese w/chopped cucumber, red pepper and olives plus a piece of fruit
- dinner is the pasta I made with a salad and a glass of milk

TUESDAY
- exercise is a ST DVD
- breakfast is PB and honey on toast w/tea
- snack is yogurt and fruit (apple, pear or grapes)
- walk at lunch time
- lunch is the carrot soup I made with a piece of fruit
- dinner is the pasta I made with a salad and a glass of milk

WEDNESDAY
- exercise is a cardio DVD
- breakfast is PB and honey on toast w/tea
- snack is yogurt and fruit (apple, pear or grapes)
- walk at lunch time
- lunch is low-fat cottage cheese w/chopped cucumber, red pepper and olives plus a piece of fruit
- dinner is the pasta I made with a salad and a glass of milk

THURSDAY
- exercise is a ST DVD to get my TnT points
- breakfast is PB and honey on toast w/tea
- snack is yogurt and fruit (apple, pear or grapes)
- walk at lunch time
- lunch is the carrot soup I made with a piece of fruit
- dinner is the pasta I made with a salad and a glass of milk

FRIDAY
- exercise is a cardio DVD
- breakfast is PB and honey on toast w/tea
- snack is yogurt and fruit (apple, pear or grapes)
- going out to lunch with a friend (I'm going to either order the chopped chicken salad for 280 calories or the Southwest potato skins for 700 calories. If I get the potato skins, I'll just have soup and salad for dinner. But if I get the salad, I'll have pasta again.)

SATURDAY
- exercise is a cardio DVD
- breakfast is PB and honey on toast w/tea
- snack is fruit
- lunch is soup with a glass of milk
- snack is popcorn
- dinner is fish w/a baked sweet potato and a salad and milk

Can you tell that I don't mind eating the same things over and over again? emoticon But the truth of the matter is that I hate having to cook when I get home from work; I'd much rather have everything ready.

    Sounds like you have a great plan this week. I sometimes wish I could do the same as you, but my husband hates having the same meal two days in a row or often even in the same week. I totally get the hating to cook after getting home from work. I think this is one of the reasons I use a LOT of prepackaged foods or takeout.

Hope you have a fantastic week.

    I am completely with you on that one! I like to fill the crock pot with something good on Sunday and eat on it every day. If I lived alone, I would do this every week. Di is burned out on salad, but she can cook if she's hungry. I am still on salads until I get ALL of the weight off and lost one more pound. Looks like I may get to eat something different today. Well, that's what the scale said last night! I am hoping for a good weigh-in today on the LWRAD team. And a better weigh-in on Wednesday with our team!

    I'm jealous of your planning! I am not that organized at all! The most I plan is to go to classes three times a week. What are you favorite DVD's? I have three Jazzercise DVD's that I really like. I just find I do better if I make it an "appointment emoticon " to exercise.

The Earrings I Bought Today at a Craft Show

Saturday, November 03, 2012



Not bad for $38 total in my opinion.

    Very pretty! I haven't been to a craft show in years. There are a few big ones around here during the holiday season so maybe this year I will get to one.
Thank you for showing us your earrings!

    They're cute. I rarely wear any earrings, but I have no reason to as I don't go out anywhere. I used to have tons and gave them all to my mom. I have become very simple in my old age.

The Southern Women's Show was here last week and it was a craft-type show but offered makeovers, mani-pedis, hairstyles, etc. Then there's tons of yard furniture for fall, plant ideas, mock kitchens... you get the idea.

A SOUTHERN WOMAN is supposed to worry about looking good and keeping a clean house and taking care of her man. But I've been before and it's fun - and the goodie bag is worth the $8 entrance fee!

Damn glad I was born in NY!

    Well, you have to lose weight this week, don't you? Maybe I should do this for a week and see how I fare...

You're doing a great job!

    Good for you! I have gained 4 pounds since last Wednesday because my parents have been here. Not a happy camper today.

So I guess I need to get back on track and sit down with my parents and lay out the ground rule son eating in this houes. Just got off the phone with mom and told her they can change the way they eat, or she can cook for her and dad, but that I cannot expect to cook for them every day as I will want to eat the way they do.

So I am back on my salads with protein and off the rice, potato salad and cole slaw they love so much! And the ribs, burgers, steaks, etc.

Now I have so much farther to go before weigh-in!

    Hi! I'm 52 years old and on Day 3 as well! I just got home from the hospital with a couple of pulmonary embolisms, sooooo, I can't exercise right now--I'm just supposed to take it easy! I also have oesteoarthritis in my knees. Had a scope done on one of them earlier this year, and they are doing great!

Keep up the good work!! emoticon

    Wow You sure have the highest Basal Metabolic Rate I have ever seen, the weight should just be dropping off you with it that high! I forget how its calculated, but I know Sparks has it here somewhere. I vaguely remember mine being 1700 or so, but that was when I had still a lot of weight to lose. Don't know what it would be now if it changes.
Great idea this daily check in!
