Good morning,

Yesterday was a decent day . B - fruit smoothie L- turkey , cheese D- chicken w some pasta & salad S- pear, string cheese, biscotti

Exercise- weights & abs class at gym

I must not know how to interpret a menu because I thought I was getting a piece of roast chiken with pasta on the side but instead it was a dish with pasta with a sauce & pieces of chicken mixed in. I did the best I could picking out the chicken & had a small portion of pasta. It was tasty though . Next time I'll ask questions.

By the way, you're all invited to my party. It will be in 3 lbs so stay tuned. Dress will be casual but wear a party hat!

Today's challenges: I am baking blond brownies to bring to an event. I can't even have a taste ! I am not a person who can have just one brownie or cookie so no tastings allowed. ( I would buy a dessert but it's a bake sale...)

Dinner out again so need to be better at ordering.

Have a super day!

OhioRaven on 10/18/2014:
Keep up the exercise. HaveaGreatDay !

puddles on 10/18/2014:
Menus are not always clear as to what the dish really is. Have fun at the bake sale.

biscottibody59 on 10/18/2014:
I'm ready for your party:-)

Sorry about the mess-up on your food order--I'm the one who would probably have sent it back!

Good morning,

Did well yesterday until mid afternoon & then I was starving! Yesterday- B- fruit smoothie, L- turkey, string cheese. D - steak, eng muffin, green beans Snacks- 2 pieces chocolate, small bag of smart food popcorn, too many almonds ! , 1 1/2 bananas, T peanut butter

Exercise- Zumba

Today - going for vegetables instead of nuts

The good news is that the scale was down 2 lbs so now I'm where I was before vacation.

Challenges today: 1. Eat more vegetables 2. Plan my meal at restaurant for dinner.

Have a great day!

OhioRaven on 10/17/2014:
I think you're getting back on track, TP. Your Zumba sounds good. HaveaHealthyDay !

museumgirl on 10/17/2014:
At least your splurge was healthy stuff. Have a great day. I love almonds, too, but its easy to eat a ton of them!

puddles on 10/17/2014:
Good job for getting back down to the original weight. Have a great day.

animob on 10/17/2014:
I love nuts but it's bad for my psirosis so is milk. Huhuhu... I did zumba on tuesday burned 700+ cals. I love the fact that it's fun and won't give you sore the next day and the best part ir burns a lot of calories! :)

Have been maintaining & watching my carbs. it will be harder on my trip but now that I've been over three weeks without bread I think I can continue. Last night I went out for dinner and my friend had bread & I didn't have a problem leaving it alone. I'm looking forward to finding out what fruits are popular in South Africa. Will try to log in while I'm away.

Destiny65 on 09/26/2014:
Your fruit search should be interesting. Enjoy your time there!

OhioRaven on 09/26/2014:
Have a good trip and have fun.

museumgirl on 09/26/2014:
Have a great trip. I'm sure you can stay focused!

Some days the scale is my friend. Down a pound which makes it all worthwhile. It's not hard following this lo carb plan. Mainly because it's not extremely low. And I am back to my nightly glass of wine. B.- almond milk smoothie, lunch- turkey, some cheese, sliced tomatoes, snacks- almonds, a small piece of chocolate. dinner - brussel sprouts with chicken and rice. And then there will be a glass of wine

One thing I have been doing is having a glass of water with juice of 1/2 a lemon or lime each morning. Who knows if it is doing anything but I'll continue doing it.

My next goal is to lose 3 lbs .

Have a good weekend!

puddles on 09/19/2014:
Sound all good keep up the good work.

biscottibody59 on 09/19/2014:
Congrats--enjoy your evening!

museumgirl on 09/19/2014:
Sounds like a great meal plan. I heartily approve of the wine :) Wish I could indulge more often!
