For today's green smoothie I used kale (organic), banana (organic) melon, pineapple and strawberries (left over fruit tray). No additives at all. It was even better than Sunday's. The fruit completely masks the taste of the kale. Kinda high in carbs for those counting but very low cal and nutritious for those who are not. A great way for the busy people to get their fruits and veg in and before 7am!

Joanna, wishing you a great day.

Cassie, way to go on your Monday report! When's the boy's driving test?

Mike, ready, set, go!

Lily, wishing you a better day two.

Robin, I love kale--I THINK I like it even not cooked. I could do the melon and strawberries. Going to the store this morning--may get some kale. Thanks!

Mern, have you ever made kale chips? I haven't, but my niece says they're fantastic.

Think I'm going to schedule for Feb 15...it's the next day school is out that the DMV is open.

Robin, thanks for the ideas! I keep thinking I want to try it but I hate cold drinks in the winter .

Have a great day, all...I'm off for an assessment but will be back later.

Same goals as last week, without the obsession goal. It occurred to me that some might consider logging everything I eat as an obsession. But I've come to view it as a strength rather than a character flaw. I'll just call it 'Focus.'

Hope: Perhaps your daughter was a bit testy because she was going back to school and you were going on vacation?

Joanna: Don't give up on your goals! In my experence, the scale always moves discretely, rather than continuously. Stuck in one place for seemingly ever, then it will take a big jump, one way or the other!

Mern: Congrats on your successes!

Cassie, no I've never made kale chips. But I will definitely look into it. I bought fresh kale this morning. Thanks! It'll be so nice when your son starts driving. You know he's had good training and a lot of practice and it'll likely free up some time for yourself.

Donna, nice goals. I don't think anyone here would consider logging everything you eat as an obsession. I think most of us strive to log everything and I do believe it's one of the keys to success. Personally, I have to log every bit of food that goes into my mouth to manage my health and for any way of eating I've ever followed.

Monday Report:

Dietary cholesterol under 250mg per day 249
Protein 120g minimum 173g
Water 64 oz. (I can't do the plan's 96 oz.) YES
Exercise 5 days (I won't do plan's 6 days) YES

Today's menu:
Breakfast scrambled Egg Beaters with chicken, brussels sprouts and roasted red pepper sauce (boy, was that good!)
Lunch: chicken wrap with spinach, broccoli slaw
Dinner: casserole of turkey sausage, low carb pasta, tomatoes, green pepper and onion, sliced cucumbers
Snacks: choose from green smoothies, almonds, strawberries. and will try some kale chips if I have time.

Post End of 1st Week Using FitDay

Hi all! I was a bit confused yesterday, couldn't find any discussion in the old thread. Didn't realize started a new thread each week! I found you guys anyway, can't hide from me.

Weather in the Chicago area is cold! Was -1 this morning, going up to a whopping 10 degrees.

I completed my first full week of dieting with a 3.6 lb. loss. My averages for the week were:

1,384 calories, 59 from fat and 16 from saturated fat
Carbs: 189
Fiber: 24
Protein: 63

Have a great day!

Mern, thanks for the welcome and for asking after me. Thank you to all who missed me (and even to those who didn't!!!) Your plan soudn delicious!! I have "menu envy." Food here is crazy exoenwsive 9and not jsut lobster I mean everything.)

Joanna, I feel your pain. I feel like these last ten pounds willNEVER come off. But let's not give up. I ahve friends who are onthis eating plan, Take Shape for Life. I was tempted to try it but not dissing anyone's plan, I am not big on pre packaged food. I am struggling so hard to do this with "real food."

Cassie, I have not had homemeade kale chips but i have gotten them many times in the health food store amd loved them. I bet they are healthier homemade. They are surprisingly high in calories and fat from the store but that is probably due to what they add to increase the yummy factor.

Hi Caty!!! Glad you "caught" us!!!

OK computer seems to be going nuts...

Hope, your planning meals on vacation is just awesome! I don't have the fortitude to do that. And, oh yum, doesyour menu sound delicious! Eating that well will probably negate the little extra controlled portions of treats of pretzels, beer, and ginger ale. Wishing you another fantastic day!
