pre-bus snack: banana and coffee emoticon
post bus breakfast: cheerios and milk emoticon
snack: mandarin orange and almonds emoticon
lunch: ham & cheese ciabatta, caesar salad emoticon Although, I had to have a spinach salad because my romaine lettuce committed suicide.
snack: apple and yogurt emoticon decided to have my baby bel at this time instead.
dinner: Olivieri pasta, rosee sauce, caesar salad emoticon No salad, tho'. *see above* I also had a piece of toasted garlic bread.
snack: baby bel and grapes emoticon Since I already ate my cheese with my apple, I decided to have a plum instead of grapes. It was super tasty.

All in all a good food day BUT:
I'm over for calories.
I lost my "no snacks after 8" points.

Still contemplating whether or not I "stuck to it". It's worth 80 points in the challenge so I'm going to mull it over until morning.

Dena & Anne - I'm going to try your PB idea. I got super hungry on the way home today and the cheerios almost didn't do the trick.

Nancy - ciabatta is just a type of bun. It's triangular and herbed.

Beth - the plan went well.

Thanks everyone for the comments and ideas.

    Because of your "rainbow of colored veggies" mention in a previous blog, I had beets last night. Then tonight, I had carrots, snow peas, and a salad with many colors. I also had a yellow pear at lunch. All those colors!

Love your blogs.

So how did the PB work for you today?

    I think you did great! I'd suggest getting more protien at breakfast though, maybe a HB egg or some peanut butter. I've never understood no snacking after a certain time, I believe if you are hungry you should eat.

    I have when fruits and veggies "commit suicide" unexpectedly. It can really throw a wrench into an otherwise totally good plan.

    Gee I think you did great.

I DO find that if I eat oatmeal instead of a cold cereal I stay full longer.

I make REAL oatmeal - not prepackaged and throw in a few raisins or drizzle some honey or a few frozen blueberries.

Just an idea.

Planning my meals for Monday

Monday, October 29, 2012

I wrote this all down on paper this morning but I figured that won't keep me all that accountable. So, here's my meal plan:

pre-bus snack: banana and coffee
post bus breakfast: cheerios and milk
snack: mandarin orange and almonds
lunch: ham & cheese ciabatta, caesar salad
snack: apple and yogurt
dinner: Olivieri pasta, rosee sauce, caesar salad
snack: baby bel and grapes

Here's hoping this keeps me going.

    My only comment would be to get in more protein in the morning to keep you going. You aren't getting any significant protein until lunch, with the ham and cheese.

Otherwise, looks like a good balanced food plan.

    For blue/purple try gummy plums - the bite size prunes indiv. wrapped.. Two of them is a serving and it's only 40 calories. My 5 yr old son tried them because we called the gummy plums and he loves them. I finally tried them and they're pretty good!

Or.. Bolthouse Farms Berry Boost Smoothie.. really good for the immune system - super high in antioxidants.


You did better than I did on the calorie differential Sunday. Sigh.. but we keep goign on.

That's IF you can get to a store if you're not on the East Coast where the hurricane is hitting like me.

I was looking for blogs of BLC members I didn't know so I could get the points for the And Toto Too part of the weekend challenge. Thanks!

Surprisingly enough..

Sunday, October 28, 2012

this morning's run was pretty fantastic. We did 9 kms in an hour and four(ish) minutes - give or take a red light. However, right now, I'm feeling not so hot. My stomach is making weird and inappropriate noises and I feel just plain "bleh". I'm still going to try to make all my goals for today. I'm on track, for sure.
Today's goals:
Do my 9 km run and get full points for exercise emoticon
Drink 64 ounces of water
Consume the rainbow of veggies (red, green, white, yellow, purple/blue)
Beat 1180 (I can do this by staying in range)

I think my water quota may be met one cup of peppermint tea at a time. I deserve this tho'. Maybe I'll remember this moment the next time I'm face to face with a platter of carbs and sugar. (probably not, though)

Rainbow of veggies list for future reference:

    Sorry you ended up feeling so wonky! Reading your blogs this morning is helpful to me though as I know today may be a tough day resisting temptation because I woke up at 2:30am and couldn't get back to sleep. Thank you for sharing! I do think you should give yourself kudos for the restraint you did show at the potluck with many of the foods. Best wishes for a good today!
