looks like good meal planning this week for sure! lots of veggies do help, even if they are cooked in sauce they are still pretty low cal! Also, I forgot how nice & satisfying shirataki noodles are from the supermarket. They sell them in many supermarkets now. These noodles are full of fiber and you can mix them into any meal (as long as there is good flavoring). and you will be full!


SkinInTheGame on 07/22/2014:
Omg - I need to break the urges to eat after work and after track too! Some days I can and some days like last night - I can't - it's the Monday curse!

Love your plan for the week! Stick to it and you will be so happy with yourself!

Had a lovely day off work yesterday; went golfing in the morning and did some shopping in the afternoon. I needed a mental health day from work; I could feel my anger levels rising and yesterday I managed to cool my beans ;)

I might get on the bike for a ride today. My knee is still a little swollen and i'm not sure the 18 holes of golf really helped too much, but I must press forward and stop babying it. It's definitely feeling much better than last week, so that's a good thing.

The plan is to spend the weekend catching up on house and yard work, and keep bleaching the basement. I'm also going to come up with a better plan for my meals for the week. I had them pretty well planned out this week, but there were too many leftovers in the fridge to tempt me!

SkinInTheGame on 07/20/2014:
You are so right - make out food plan and commit to only eating what's on the plan! If you feel like you are going to give in - have a plan like "then I'll have a cuppa tea".

I say this all the time - time for a cuppa! I got that from someone on this site and I use it!

Mmnn, fried rice leftovers today.

I don't make fried rice often because it's too time consuming for me (I'm a cook it in five and eat it in two kind of girl), but it sure was worth it yesterday. I cooked the rice and chicken ahead of time and let them cool in the fridge. I used brown, wild rice and quinoa, and seasoned the chicken breasts with paprika, among other things. I am a huge fan of paprika.

I started the fry with  white onion, then added: red pepper, garlic, and green onion. I left out eggs because I don't have any raw eggs left in the fridge. Once that was cooked down a bit, I added the cooked rice, some teriyaki sauce, and soy sauce. I added the chicken last and let it just warm up basically. Delicious! We also had roasted carrots and boiled broccoli with herb & garlic shredded cheese as the sides.

I didn't do any exercise yesterday; PT did electrotherapy on my knee to try and reduce the swelling, but I think she poked and prodded a little too much after that. It's kind of sore now, and the swelling didn't go down much. She wrapped it for me, which only scared my company into thinking there was something seriously wrong with my knee. I assured them I was fine. Still taking aleve, so we'll see what that does.

Had a nighttime snack of chips and cheese and am not very happy about it, but will simply try and do better today.

Food yesterday: water, coffee, cottage cheese with blueberries and pineapple, chicken potato casserole, yogurt and 1/2 banana, chicken fried rice with carrots and broccoli, chips and cheese. Believe it or not, it added up to around 1800 calories, which still isn't all that bad!

KTbabyweight on 07/16/2014:
Ooh that fried rice sounds delicious - I will have to try making it! Well done on the good calorie day!


thenewMLE on 07/18/2014:
Thanks for the fried rice method! I really wanted to do this with the LoMein, but maybe I will just do it next week as a side dish. Take care of that knee!

Visited with a friend after work yesterday; we both have had knee difficulty during the flooding, although she has had trouble with both knees. She also mentioned two others who have had knee problems, so we are going to start a Knee Support Group ;) We'll meet each week at someone's house and sit in the backyard with our knees elevated, drinking margaritas ;) Good group, if you ask me!

It took me awhile to cook supper yesterday so I snuck in a few snacks along the way - pb sandwich, a little slice of french toast bake, hashbrown casserole. This is what happens when I have many leftovers in the fridge. I should have just left my snacks as my supper, but the fried rice with chicken and veggies was too hard to resist trying, so I had a small bowl of that as well.

At least I didn't go to bed hungry.

I need to stop all the At Home Snacking. If i'm going to be honest, I wasn't even all that hungry. I probably could've waited for supper to be cooked. Must start walking in a forward direction instead of a backward one!

PT appt today and will hopefully get ultrasound on my knee. Then will decide what to do about my knee. I took two Aleve so far and that seems to be helping slightly so I might give it a few more days before I ask my doctor.

I have company coming for supper today and i'm making another batch of chicken fried rice with some baked carrots and broccoli. And tomorrow I need to get back into the basement and start cleaning it again, and maybe cut the grass. Geez that grass grows fast!

Horn_of_plenty on 07/15/2014:
My best friend would love u!!! She LOVES chicken fried rice. It's mostly the only thing she orders when we go out for Thai/Chinese/Japanese. Sorry about yours knees but u had me laughing about the support group! I am very excited for the concert tonight!!


thenewMLE on 07/15/2014:
Glad you enjoyed your company, now it's back to business at hand! I hope your knee isn't too badly messed up. Maybe it's just doctor's orders to stay off it and let it heal kind of a thing. Sounds like you make a killer fried rice. We are doing LoMein tonight, and I offered to make fried rice, but hubby says it is easier to buy it. I like to cook fresh because I know what is in stuff. I have never done a fried rice. Care to share your recipe? Enjoy dinner and company!

Good Monday Morning!

My weekend was pretty good; i'm always sad to see Monday come, but today it means that all my company is gone and the house is empty once again.

Aside from being pretty tired all weekend, it was nice to have so many people around. Different, for sure!

Once everyone left yesterday, I re-filled my fridge with some essentials for the week, and tried a new recipe. I made quiche in a muffin tin; it worked great! Now I can have a much more nutritious breakfast in the mornings.

I have some leftover chicken and potato casserole for lunch, and I picked up some snack items - fruit, yogurt, cottage cheese. I should have no excuse to eat junk this week.

My knee is quite swollen; it has been for over a week now. I have a physio appointment tomorrow after work, so will wait and see what she thinks about it. I think there's some fluid buildup, and i'm a little frightened it might cause a blood clot.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/14/2014:
it's good you are taking care of your knee, too bad you had to deal with it all week! I'm glad you had a nice weekend. personally, one the weekend I tend to need almost a full day to myself each weekend for laundry, gym, errands. usually I can be done and ready for dinner with someone or a small get together later on in the afternoon, but usually one day is just shot for the most part getting all my things done, which I don't mind. LOL, if I had company, I would probably need Monday off lol.

legcramps on 07/15/2014:
We are so alike! I desperately need to do laundry and clean the house, but wasn't able to get to it on the weekend so now it's probably going to have to wait until Friday! Should have taken Monday off :)
