I was in a hurry having to transport my oldest cat to the Vet to have her shots updated.
So I just whipped myself up a protein smoothie. Couldn't sleep last night, got up at 1:30 and back to bed sometime in the wee hours of the morning.

In a very low mood this morning so indulged myself with about 4 of these little things called Pastry Bites, filled with raspberry filling -- topped it off with a cup of coffee. Not all that healthy, and it didn't do a thing to improve my weight.

Lunch was much better for me, a big green salad topped with baked chicken breast.

Changed my eating plan today, so ended up a bit low on protein but...............

I had 3 of the little cinnamon waffles with about a 4-inch long piece of banana and a glass of Diamond Almond Milk. Yum! Love waffles and milk together!

Cheated today, just had coffee with SF creamer and a yummy cinnamon roll (160 cal) so only 180 calories total.

I had my protein smoothie at lunch time instead.

So far so good with my weight loss, so I had my usual Protein Smoothie with banana and pears added. And I used the Cinnamon Swirl protein powder again.

Had a protein smoothie for breakfast, but added banana, strawberries and about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of spinach. Haven't been eating as many salads for some reason, so this way at least I am getting some greens in me.

What do you use to mix yours with, Suzie? I normally use 1 cup of coffee and 1 cup of the Diamond Almond Milk.

That's what I had, but I skipped the blueberries today.

As I was short of time this morning I didn't eat before church. By the time I got home it was close to 10:30 and I was really hungry. A protein smoothie is the quickest thing I could think of so that's what it was.

It is so nice to now have the option of choosing between Cinnamon Swirl and Chocolate-Peanut Butter.

Heck, Kathy, all you need to do is stick dinner into your breakfast slot, then eat breakfast as your nighttime meal. You know, lots of people eat breakfast for dinner, so it won't be hard to do. See if it helps you sleep better. Hubby being gone is probably the reason. Isn't that what hubbies are for -- to blame things on?

This morning I tried mixing the two protein powders I have, so a little bit of chocolate and a bit of the cinnamon swirl mixed in with my other ingredients -- it's great, so satisfying! Plus I put my calcium tablets in with my smoothie and that's 2 pills less that I have to swallow. I tried doing it with the vitamin C one time, but it changes the taste of the smoothie.

Eve - your smoothy sounds so good.

I'm having trouble sleeping, too. I wonder if it is the weather changing (I always blame the weather for anything), the full moon approaching along with a moon eclipse, too much happening in my life, hubby out of town... My response is to eat too much later in the day. I just can't seem to stop myself.

However breakfast and lunch are in control. I'm having hot bran cereal with added ground flax and cinnamon and some scrambled egg substitute.

Just could not go to sleep last night. At all. Got up at 2:30, ironed clothes and cleaned until 4:00 back to bed. Still couldn't sleep, so up about 5:30 stayed up a couple of hours, then back to bed, slept until the phone rang and woke me about 9:00. Took a nap this afternoon for 2 or more hours.

While I was up this morning I tried a new protein powder I bought called Cinnamon Swirl, so yummy with almond milk and about 4-5 inches of banana.

I had my usual cholesterol down breakfast with a few added fresh strawberries.

I usually have a soy/fiber protein drink for lunch. It's another part of the cholesterol down program. I usually have an apple with it or as a snack a little later.

I'm allergic to so many foods that my friends have gotten used to eating while I drink a glass of water and visit when we go out. You can train your friends to do the same and still enjoy the social interaction if you want.

From articles that I have read and what my doctor says, you are right to not worry much about your little dab of overweight. It will give you a bit extra if you get really ill and lose weight because of it. My doctor reminds me that I've got more than a dab of fat and need to really work on it.

I'm sure it is a very filling breakfast, Kathy! I find if I don't start my day off with the protein smoothie I have a hard time getting enough protein for the day. And it is so easy and quick to fix, and carries me through the morning without yearning for something.

I look back on my days of going out to eat quite often for breakfast, lunch or dinner and I know it's no wonder I had gained weight. Now I kind of resign myself to putting on a pound if I eat out with a friend -- that's why I don't do it often. And with the way I eat I seem to maintain more than lose, but it's OK. At my age, it's not my ideal weight, but I look presentable in my clothing. There are still little spots of fat here and there, if it comes off great, if it doesn't -- I can live with it.

SCOTTMAMA - the banana/yogurt protein smoothie sounds good.

I had my usual cholesterol down breakfast - 1/4 c old fashioned oats, 1/4 c oat bran, big dash of cinnamon, hot water poured over to "cook". 1/8 c ground flax seed stirred in after it has cooled a bit. 1/2 c egg substitute for additional protein. 1 liter or more of hot black and green tea.

It's a big breakfast, but it gets me off to a great start and when combined with what I'm supposed to do, it helps keep my cholesterol down without meds.

A protein smoothie with extra peanut butter -- I needed something that would stick with me.

And, yummy, it did, I did yard work all afternoon -- about 3-1.2 hours! Needless to say, it will be a 'short walk for Amber tonight.

I discovered I had forgotten to make coffee before going to bed last night, and I like to make my smoothie using half coffee and half fat-free milk. So instead I cut open a grapefruit and after the long process of getting all the little segments cut, I am enjoying the ice cold bites, and I wonder why I don't eat one every day!

Had my regular old protein smoothie this morning, and glad I did when it got to be 3:00 and we were still messing around with stuff on our building site. I was getting hot and hungry, and knew I would really be ravenous by the time we got back home (90 minutes trip) -- and I was, but by that time I was also very, very tired. So I ate a few baby carrots and some grapes and laid down for a nap. It worked out OK.

Hi again. I wasn't on for a while so just saw your message. Yes, the blueberry flaxseed muffins are homemade. The recipe is here on SparkPeople. Here's the link to the recipe. I watched the video first from Chef Meg and I followed her suggestion of rolling the frozen blueberries in flour first so they don't "bleed" into the mixture. I also added some craisins for an extra zing. They are so moist and tasty. Hope you try them sometime.

That sounds yummy, Suz -- are all these delicious muffins homemade? I hear other people talking about some of them and I think, I really should make some, but the first thing I know is that another week has gone by and still no muffins. I think I will make some zucchini bread tomorrow though.

I just had a protein drink for my breakfast. I had such a busy Friday that today was pretty quiet, trying to recuperate!

instead of a smoothie, I added protein powder to a coffee/cocoa mixture. Yum!

My usual protein smoothie -- it's the only way I can get enough protein!

Although yesterday, it was 11:00 a.m. and my car wasn't quite ready, so we went to IHOP and I ordered the Senior French Toast, with 2 slices of very crisp bacon.

I was really bad today. A friend made some home made egg rolls and I had several for breakfast, actually brunch. They were small but I still had too many. I can't even enter it in my tracker because I have no idea of the calories, fat, or omg the sodium. Why don't I think of these things before I eat something rather than after I eat it?

I ate much better this morning! Here's the "sandwich" I made for myself:

thin sliced ham
1 slice American cheese
a little less than the equivalent of one egg of SW eggbeaters

put all this on a cheesy bun that my DH buys from the bakery! don't know how many
calories in this, but probably plenty!
