Game Plan For This Week (work menu drama, continued)

Sunday, March 03, 2013


I'm PMSing. I'm tired of food. I feel stuffed and bloated and I'm up 5 lbs on the scale. This WILL NOT DO!

So my game plan this next week is as follows...

I'm picking up another extra shift at work, so I'll pretty much be there all week. I plan to eat the exact same thing every day this week for bkfst, lunch, and dinner. The only exception is that on Monday (since it's my first night), I might get a Starbucks on the way to work.

Bkfst: oat bran mixed with pumpkin, blueberries, banana, prunes, and soymilk

Lunch: nut butter sandwich made with Ezekiel Flax bread and either peanut or almond butter. Served with mixed fresh fruit.

Dinner: Salad made with spinach, onion, bell peppers, alfalfa sprouts, corn, edamame, black beans, carrots, craisins, tomato, cucumber, broccoli, avocado.

Last week I had a fantastic week of work, but a not-so-great week of eating. Here's to making this a better week!!!

    Just read this as I was contemplating getting a snack.


    d me in my tracks. Had lentils and brown rice for dinner. 1/2 cup each and am full!

    Sparking, walking the dogs and then...bed.

    You can do it! PMSing is a hard time for weighing and snacking. I'm sure next week your weigh in will be much better emoticon

    That looks like a great food plan. I came across a "runners pancakes" recipe here that might fit your diet if you do eggs some morning (can't remember if you eat them). I usually add a little soy protein and top with applesauce.

    Sorry you're having the maintenance Yo-Yo with your weight. I'm going through the same thing. If you ever find the magic key, send me a copy.

    Sounds like a yummy plan. That bread is really good. I read yesterday that almond butter kicks peanut butter's butt as far as minerals go. It was about bone health and it was here on SP.
    Keep your chin up and watch your self talk. That is always the area I struggle in PMS days. Someone here said the thoughts go first, so that is where we need to be on guard.
    I pray you find your rhythm. Lent is hard the first time around. I had a client do it for the first time last year and it was just so foreign to her, she struggled.

    Well Done on the menu. I keep telling myself I need to get back to pre-planning. It really does help.

    Where's the BEEF? LOL I have a tough time feeling satisfied without my protein. I don't need much either, but if I try doing without, I PMS myself. ;-)

    I was up with Time of Month too last weigh in day, it will be water!

    Great plan for the week though, good luck.

    5 pounds is likely water...it will go away once the hormones even out, so don't freak out about it. Your meals sound very healthy, lots of veggies and fruit, that's how I like it too!

    That looks like a great plan! Now that I've been following my repetitive menu for two weeks, I'm only having a 1 lb fluctuation from week to week. So eating the same foods over and over really works.

    Good luck!
