Hope, well, you don't eat French fries every day, so we'll let you go without a beating for yesterday. LOL Ooh, your turkey burger scheduled for today is inspiring. I think I'll stop by the grocery and get some before lunch. What is a theater bonding? I love your goals. My water intake has been so bad lately that I can't even squeeze out one of your hahahahas. Oh, my-do not JADE is a tough one for me. I'm sure I about bring my husband to tears over that sometimes--once I get started it's hard to shut myself up.

Bedrick, hi. Looking forward to your posts here.

Jenn, I have to work on my water, too.

Back to my goals that I know work well for me. Fresh new start today with my regular dental checkup and teeth cleaning plus new resolve on eating healthfully. Upping my calories to see if it increases my metabolism any; a dietitian told me last year that my weight of well over 200 lbs. my calorie deficit may be too high, possibly causing me to stay on a plateau because my body wants to hang on to calories--that starvation mode thing. So, new start today and my weekly goals will be:

Calorie limit 1800
Net carbs (carbs less fiber) average 25g
Fiber average 25g
Protein average 120g
Sat fat average 10% of daily calories
Cholesterol daily 250mg or less
Water 64 oz.
Exercise 5 days per week
Try at least one new recipe or food per week

Today's menu:

Breakfast: flaxmeal muffin and protein shake
Lunch: turkey burger on a low carb tortilla and a side of cooked spinach
Dinner: low carb pasta with marinara and ground veggie burger, cooked broccoli
Snacks: almonds; nuked "faux oatmeal" of flaxmeal, banana protein powder and water; and maybe will try my idea of celery stuffed with canned salmon and horseradish sauce or ranch dressing
