I'm now into tomorrow! 9 minutes past midnight!

So my meals for today -

Breakfast: grapefruit juice, a banana, maybe some other fruit too.
Lunch: either soup or sandwiches (cheese or egg, lettuce or cucumber or tomato, or all 3)
Dinner: oven-cooked chicken legs and thighs, roasted sweet potato, broccoli, mushroom, shallots, maybe some homemade coleslaw - maybe.

I'm married to a heavy duty carnivore and Saturday is ALWAYS Steak night! I try to cut some of the guilt by having a small baked sweet potato instead of a reg one which i would put salt and butter on.... I also disappoint my DH by not eating the whole steak but of course he really doesn't mind because he gets to eat the leftover later in the week. I also try to compensate with a lower cal breakfast and lunch. Of course I still end up over my calories so I just resign myself to Saturday is my bad day.

It's Sunday morning so I've already had breakfast:

One egg and one egg white scrambled with tomato, mushroom and green bell pepper. I put an ounce of shredded cheese on top. (Just remembered that I forgot to add the cheese to my log lol...I'll go do that after this).
Two links of morningstar veggie sausage links
coffee w/ creamer

Lunch:
Leftover butternut squash and veggie chili (SparkRecipe: http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-deta
il.asp?recipe=1272379)

Dinner:
Cheat Meal! We're going to a hamburger joint, Gordies. I'm going to have a chicken sandwich, no fries. MAYBE a soda. Probably not, though. That's my Achilles heel. They're so small in Japan, though...more like a shot glass of soda lol.

I've been concentrating on breakfast and lunch, in other teams - I'm not sure about this one.

However, today -
Breakfast was fruit juice plus a couple of pieces of fruit.
Lunch was rolls with smoked salmon and lemon juice, plus a roll with cheese.
Dinner - tomato, cucumber, onion, broccoli, pasta, eggs.

This is an area I need to improve in! I drink a weight loss shake for breakfast, had a peanut butter sandwich on whole wheat for lunch, and will have another shake for dinner. I am going out this evening, so I did not have time to prepare dinner. Must watch out for snacks!

I've not "officially" started the challenge for this time, just yet - going to work it from this coming Sunday, just cos it's easier to record.
However, I am trying to start the tracking side of stuff (food and exercise) - just now.

Breakfast will continue to be a banana and a cup of of grapefruit juice. Or at least a piece of fruit and a cup of juice.
Some days I may have more, which will be either more fruits, r cereal with other fruit and some milk.

My "meal plan" is that I will get up early enough to fit in breakfast and lunch. And to manage to get our evening meal ready for 6.00 - 6.45, rather than the previous 7.30 - 8.45.
I *will* be achieving this last item ths month.
And I will be able to achieve that only by getting up in time to have a "day" in order to get on with stuff.

I'll enjoy readIng more ideas - for all the various daily meals and snaks

2 eggs once in a while is okay, but two eggs has more than the daily recommended cholesterol. I use to eat 2 a day, I now eat only one a day.

Great Meal plan, gives me some incentive, we have 2 Jacks too!

You focus your mind to train your body and the changes that begin to take place impact your mind as well. Dream it, believe it, and you will achieve it.

When you cut back on your soda please stay away from any of the sugar free brands. I found that you can get severe migraines from all the artifical sugars.

The plan is to eat healthy!! Breakfast- serving of Green Goodness and a hard boiled egg.
Lunch- probably a small salad with lemon juice and cottage chesse. Dinner will be home-made pizza with whole wheat crust, low fat mozerella cheese, pepperoni, bell peppers, and mushrooms. Snacks will be celery and carrots!!

My downfall is soda. I can't go cold turkey- but I am going to try to limit how much I drink! More water, less soda!

Although my husband will protest that it is "Taco Tuesday", I am planning on making the Spark Recipe "Smothered Pork Chops", along with seasoned, baked potato wedges, and some sort of mixed veggie. It is the new year, which means a new us.
