Breakfast:
one egg, one egg white with baby bella mushrooms and onions in a low carb low cal whole wheat wrap, maybe with a little goat cheese - just egg whites and all this Not as tasty as you'd think, Mern
Snack:
fruit- apple or pineapple - small amount of pineapple

Lunch
Soup - 2 bowls though
Snack:
2 c. popcorn or 1/2 c. sweet potato chips - waaaayyy too many of both and pretzels

Ham and goat cheese rollups

Dinner is a puzzle now, kinda sick of fish
Chicken cutlets or beef and broccoli - yummy steak, broccoli and homemade veg fried rice

Snack:
sugar free chocolate Vitamuffin: 1/3 of a small "healthy" lime tart

Cassie, I am sure you are nice to both your patients and your DH.

Mike, DH paid you to support my goal, didn't he?

Hi all. Missed doing goals this week but I try to keep the same goals in mind. I'm doing better on drinking water.
I shovelled the end of the driveway this morning. Didn't think there was that much but it had frozen so I was out there for about 20 min.

I weighed myself on Mon and I'm the same. At least it's not up.

Hi all! I think I'm finally on the mend! I still had a fever this morning, but it came down over the day and has stayed down...it also doesn't hurt as much to breathe. This virus has seriously kicked my butt!! If my fever stays down, I may try an easy treadmill walk tomorrow just to get back into the swing of things and take it from there. No last minute workout for me Libby! Regardless, I'll be there a the Friday weigh in!

Cassie, I commend you on your great food choices under difficult circumstances. Wishing you less work and more time to relax.

Hope, I do better with water if I can grab a bottle, too. Congrats on the goals you are achieving. Your planned menu looks yummy. I'm a squash fan but rarely cook it. I saw your note on the breakfast. Sometimes I make stuff for myself (not for DH) that I know ahead of time will be merely edible because it's convenient or I have stuff in the fridge that needs to be eaten. On a better note: I sometimes use my really supple low carb tortillas in a mini muffin tin to make mini tart shells and fill them with Carb Master dairy blend/fake yogurt. I've also used lemon low fat yogurt as tart filling and that was a real treat.

Libby, a pound net loss may be all I can show tomorrow on the Friday weigh in. I went over in carbs Monday, Tuesday and today. If I eat more than 30 net carbs per day no matter how few calories, how little sat fat, or how much protein I eat, how much water I drink, I don't lose weight. Simple fact: excess blood sugar is stored as fat. Well, I misspoke. Originally I also included "no matter how much I exercise..." That's really not true--I don't have the fortitude to exercise more than 5 days a week and I've exercised only 3 times since last Friday. But everything else I said is true. Sometimes I get aggravated about that, knowing that if I took meds, I could eat 180g carbs a day like other people, instead of only 25g net carbs after deducting grams of fiber. But then I turn around and see that people are sick, homeless, unemployed, or are struggling in a relationship, etc., and I start recounting my blessings. It's good to remind myself that if I could stick with my goals and lose a pound a week, I'd be proud as a peacock to say a year from now I'm down 52 pounds.

Jenn, shoveling snow is quite a workout! Congrats on maintaining. I agree--it beats the heck out of gaining.

Debbie, glad to read that you're getting better. Don't overdo it on the treadmill. Remember your stamina and strength are diminished from the flu and you don't want to overwork the muscles and get sore. I'm sure you have a good head on your shoulders, just want to say it ahead of time so you give YOURSELF a dispensation where needed.
