Motivation Monday! I've pretty much maintained the past week so not awful but only two week to my trip so want to lose at least 5 more!
Water, Water, Water every day
Try to get more veggies in
Not so many carbs - that's hard
Tracking everything each day - YES

Have a great week all & welcome to the new people

Oohh Jezzie, 5lbs in 2 weeks you are gonna have to be extra particular! Hope it goes well.

Well I did walk 4k today...despite the cold. Had extra fruit and veggies today between the green smoothie and the greek salad (I so hope your poem is true Donna).

Here's to an awesome week everyone!

Default Omg!

h My!

I had a half Turkey Muffaletta for lunch. Haven't had one in ages, but it sounded healthy enough. Turkey, olives, hold the Mayo. I did consider the cheese, but though that couldn't be too bad. Just went into total shock when I discovered the sandwich was 1500 calories! It was good, but not that good. Ouch.

Donna - I hope that calorie count is for a whole sandwich and not half. How big was that sandwich anyway?

LOL Donna. I know how that shock is but I checked before I ordered. Was going to have lettuce wraps at Joey Tomatoes - I think it was 960 calories and 65 g of fat! I was shocked. A burger at 560 calories was a better choice!

Does anyone use the Nutri Bullet? I've been hearing good reports on it & might buy one...

Robin, yes, at the rate I'm losing that 5 lbs might be tough but I'll do my best :-)

After comparing several sources, I've come to the conclusion that 1500 cals were for the whole sandwich, not the half. The ingredients just don't add up. However, if you go to Jason's Deli site (not where I got my sandwich BTW), they also list 1500 calories for a 1/2 Turkey Maffaletta, but note that it's "served with with chips or baked chips and pickle." Maybe they're adding in the chips.

I decided a more accurate value is probably 800 cals.

That sounds better. When I was estimating calories, I was thinking 200 each for bread, turkey, and cheese, and another 150 or so for olives.

I've made it through today with no dietary pitfalls - now if I can just last through the next three hours until bedtime - one of my danger zone times.

My poem for today is food erotica. (Dieters may wish to avert their eyes.)

Ode to a Muffaletta

Your sesame beacons me to eat
and having bit, the ooze of your dairy goodness
so warm
the sharp, tart olive salad
edifies the turkey within.
Should I bite again?
I dare not.
