I'm finding that planning is necessary to my making smart choices about eating and working out. So, to help me with that, I'm going to write my plans in my blog.
Breakfasts this week...alternate between my frozen sausage & egg cups that I made this weekend, omelettes, and oatmeal using steel cut oats. Drink a cup of spicy V-8 and take my medication, then I'm set 'til snack time.
Snacks (two per day): Alternate between Heart healthy mix of nuts, Greek yogurt w/honey, sugar snap peas with hummus, reduced fat cheddar cheese
Lunches: Alternate between soup & salad, leftovers from previous dinners
Monday - Spicy beef tacos (use lettuce leaves for taco shells), homemade guacamole
Tuesday - stuffed tilapia (spark recipe), broccoli, mixed grain rice
Wednesday - balsamic italian chicken, asparagus w/parmesan, salad
Thursday - curried chicken (cooking light recipe), whole wheat couscous
Friday - Roasted salmon (epicurious.com), Tigris grains, salad, roasted veggies
Saturday - grilled bbq chicken, grilled veggies,
Sunday - Roasted chicken, roasted sweet potatoes, salad
As for exercise, I'm looking at walking/swimming/biking 5x week for 30 mins each. Strength training 3x week with weights.
As well as taking medication for my heart and high cholesterol, I'm going to try safflower oil.
1521 So far so good. Eating well and on plan. Need to print recipes for today and tomorrow.
