Spin off from the Eight Week Healthy Weight Loss Challenge.  

 

So exercise is one part of weight loss, and eating well is the other - I think I'll find it helpful to chat about what everyone's eating.  

Maybe get some ideas and inspiration, but also some accountability!  

 

Who's with me?

Okay, I'll start

 

Breakfast:

3 weetbix with soy milk

Lunch:

big salad with vegan sausages

Dinner: 

Spaghetti with tomato based veggie loaded sauce

Snacks:

2 vitaweats with peanut butter

granny smith apple

1 sugar free lemonade can

1 rum ball (!)

 

Yesterday's food was exactly the same, except I didn't have a lemonade!  

My struggle time is after dinner, before bed - I always want to nibble on something.

I would love to do this with you.  I am using myfitnesspal to track calories.  I am trying to stay between 1600-1800 a day.  

 

This is yesterday:

 

Breakfast:  oatmeal, banana, egg, almond milk, tea

Lunch :  brown rice, black beans, egg, salad, olive oil

Dinner:  brown rice, chicken, salad, olive oil

Snack:  large tomato

 

My calories were a bit low 1550, but it was just the first day.   On to day 2!

today for breakfast i had an oatmeal + egg + grated cheese pancake

two cups of tea with artificial sweetener and a dash of milk

 

at 11:00 am i had a some (cold, in a park, from a plastic container, with a spoon, whilst the children were playing and having a cheese sandwich) left over vegetables + a little left over ground meat (all from yesterday)

+ i drank some cold veggie soup (zucchinis + green beans) from a thermos flask

 

late lunch, i had some paella rice + a few leaves of salad + half a pear

 

later i had a bowl of hot veggie soup (i had just made another batch, this time a third spinach, two third green beans, with basil leaves) as i was liquidizing it. It had a tablespoon worth of coconut oil (in the hope that i can resist eating sweets later on ...)

 

plus i tasted a very little sweet i have been making to take to some ex-neighbors (one third sugar, one third almond powder, one third freshly ground sesame seeds, one teaspoon of cardamom powder, one egg, makes about 50 sweets- a small mouthful, i shape them with two teaspoons)

 

tonight i'm not sure yet, a mixed salad probably, but not fixed yet on which protein to go with it

(the rest of the family is having a frozen shepherd's pie, i don't digest that too well ....)

Eating well is my biggest challenge, I have very little appetite and if I'm not careful, I go all morning and until early afternoon before I realize I need to eat! Which then turns into eating whatever I can get my hands on (and is the reason I need to lose! lol).

 

Morning: smoothie made with yogurt, handful of berries and half a banana, and a scoop of protein powder

 

Lunch: first, I made everyone sandwiches and veggie sticks. Then, I made some quinoa because for some reason I was craving it...

 

Supper tonight is red beans and rice and cornbread with a salad.

 

I really need to start writing it all down and making sure I'm getting everything I need. I am not wanting to count calories because I tend to give up if I do (dunno why?) and I'm also nursing. I want to focus on eating the right foods in the amounts that I need. I am betting I see a huge change if I did that, and stayed away from the soda.

 

Oh, I have a bread machine that we just got. Does anyone have any super awesome bread recipes?

Here's what I've had so far.  I use myfitnesspal.com to track my calories.  I'm allotted 1260 and I find it hard to stay within this unless I exercise.  My biggest problem is breakfast.  No matter what I have, I'm starving by 10:30.
 
Today
Breakfast: small slice of bread with a thin amount of peanut butter before my run.  Oatmeal with 1 tsp brown sugar after my run.
Lunch: Tuna salad on homemade wheat bread, carrots, and cheesecake.  (I made the cheesecake for my sister in law's birthday on Sunday and could't resist)
 
Dinner: probably pasta and a veg

I'm a paleo/primal girl and decided for the first 4 weeks to do a Whole30! Well I might have some wine on the weekend so it'll be close!

Here's what I ate today:

Breakfast:
Coconut milk in coffee
Eggs fried in ghee, baby greens, tomatoes and garlic
2 chicken sausages

Lunch:
Shrimp and fennel sauté with green olives and tomatoes. Without the feta cheese on top... *sob*

Dinner: Pesto meatballs in organic mushroom pasta sauce on top of zucchini noodles I peeled up. So good! But I miss the grated parmesan. I'll live without for 30 days, right!?!?!

Snack/dessert: Nectarine, strawberries and bananas

Food is the tough part of the challenge for me. Also have a 1 cup a day chai habit. I tried eliminating it, but ended up replacing the chai with a bag of cookies. Chai is the healthier option. Lol

 

Here's what I ate yesterday:

 

Breakfast: bowl of cereal, almond milk,  cup of chai w/almond milk and 2 tsp. sugar

Lunch- 2 pieces of sprouted wheat bread, 1 tbs. canola mayo, 1 slice grilled seitan, 1 slice provolone cheese, 1/2 avocado.

dinner out- veggie burger with veggies and basalmic dressing, onion strings, and unsweetened ice tea

 

Snacks-  1 small slice of the homemade corn-free chocolate cake I made for my dd, 1 cup of watermelon,  

 

 

Today so far:  

 

Breakfast: bowl of cereal, almond milk,  cup of chai w/almond milk and 2 tsp. sugar

Lunch out-  Wheat bread, reg. mayo, cheese, and avocado sandwich, unsweetened ice tea

dinner-  2 pieces of sprouted wheat bread, 1 tbs. canola mayo, 1 slice grilled seitan,  fruit smoothie made with almond milk and strawberries, tsp sugar

 

snacks- bite of watermelon, 2 oven baked french fries, 1 coconut popsicle

 

 

Lots of water throughout both days, sparkling and regular water

 

 

I have trouble with staying away from the sweets, including the natural ones. :(

Yay!   Glad to have some company!  

 

Ruthie - I'm trying to stay somewhere between 1200 and the 1400 recommended by my calorie tracker.  I'm mostly on the high side though.  

 

Sillygirl - no bread recipes from me, I'm trying to stay away from bread altogether at the moment.  It is indeed one of my vices!  

 

Speaking of vices, I'm trying to stay away from alcohol!  Especially cocktails! greensad.gif  

 

AFM:  Some nice downwards movement on the scales again today.  I like it! 

 

Breakfast:  3 weetbix & soy milk (I have the same everyday, you'll soon be bored with it!)

Lunch: 2 vegan snags and salad (lettuce, capsicum, tomato, avo, shallots, carrot, mushrooms, etc)

Dinner: Veggie stir fry and noodles

Snacks: apple and a sugarfree lemonade

Day 2

 

Breakfast:  oatmeal, egg, grapefruit, almond milk, tea

Lunch:  brown rice, black beans, egg, big salad, olive oil

Dinner:  brown rice, quinoa, chicken, big salad

Snacks:  peach, nectarine, cheese, almond milk in tea

 

Total of 1683, smack in the middle of my sweet spot!  

 

 

 

Feeling fine -- I get hungry in the afternoon, but that is normal for me.  I am always, always hungry around 3pm.  I just have to plan for a decent snack and not dive into a hefty peanut butter sandwich like I usually do.  I don't know what it is about peanut butter, but I simply love it.  How American of me...of course, I overlook the fact that a thick slather on bread can be 500-600 calories and then I turn right around and eat dinner.   

 

Off to make my morning oatmeal.  Good luck to all!

Did pretty well yesterday, but ended up staying up late last night and sleeping in this morning, so I missed breakfast. Woke up to DP making Annie's shells and cheese for everyone, so went ahead and had some of that, then felt guilty and grabbed a handful of carrot sticks...

 

About to head in the kitchen now and fix myself a big salad.

 

Supper tonight is roast with baked sweet potato fries and some squash and zucchini.

lunch: ham sandwich with a slice of havarti and a thin spread of hummus, another slice of bread with goat cheese

dinner: chicken with sauteed peppers, mushrooms and onions, cous cous, peas

snacks: banana, oreo cookies, carrots and hummus and peanut butter

am- coffee

       steel cut oats with a little rice milk & brown sugar

       1sl wheat bread & butter ( I woke up sooo hungry this morning!)

 

mid-veggie burger on multigrain bread

       w/ avocado, veggies & hummus (instead of mayo)

 

pm- 1/2c beans, 1c brown rice w/a little cheese & salsa

       mango-berry crisp w/coconut  (nondairy) ice cream

  

snacks- strawberries

          raw veggies & hummus

          more coffee

          2 hard boiled eggs

Sorry milk, just saying what I eat to make me think about it and I think it is helpful.

 

Well, breakfast definitely stuck with me until 3:30 p.m. this afternoon.  Had rest of pesto pasta, fresh from my garden tomato and cheese sandwich, sour cream and cheddar cheese potato chips, bunch of red grapes, tortillas with salsa and sour cream

 

Had a snack with grapes and a slice of fresh bread with butter.  So that ends up Friday, August 3's food.

You are not alone!  lol.gif  The weekend is my enemy

 

Yesterday:

B: same as always

L: Vegan burger and chips (lunch out - 700 calories!!!)

D: Burrito with vegan nuggets, salad and salsa

S: Vodka & lemonade + potato chips!  

 

(Bad, bad girl!)

 

Today:

B: ditto above

L: salad sandwich with vegan pattie (lunch out again!  no chips this time though!)

D: spaghetti with tomato & veg sauce with "mince"

S: mint slice cookie & sugar free lemonade.  

(much better today... )

 

I'm hoping that I haven't totally undone all my hard work from this week.  Surely 5 good out of 7 days is better than nothing?  

Back on the wagon hardcore tomorrow.

Yesterday-

                Cuban sandwich- avocado, cheese, lettuce, onion, roll

                Starbucks chai

                Fruit smoothie- frozen fruit, banana, probiotics (on antibiotics, yuck!), almond milk

                liquid iron supplement

                Ramen noodle soup, my ds ate most of the noodles

                Mixed green salad with a little cheese and walnuts, small serving ranch dressing

                cheese sandwich- sprouted wheat bread, small amount mayo, and 2 slices cheese

 

 

Today so far-   Breakfast-  cereal and almond milk

                                       tea bag chai w/ almond milk- 1 tsp. sugar

                                       1 small piece watermelon

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Walking hasn't been enough and I'm still not playing hockey, taking classes,  so I need to be more strict about eating. I need to figure out how many calories I need to stick to,  to lose weight. I'm still nursing my ds, but I don't think I require an extra 500 calories. I'll definitely cut out the cheese. I'm a vegetarian, but soy messes with my hormones. I'll have to figure out another protein source. Maybe beans??   Also skipping the Starbucks chai. Too much sugar and calories.

Breakfast: 1 egg scrambled in coconut oil and mixed with kimchi

 

Some days I have rich coffee.

 

Snacks: fruit, vegetables and kombucha

 

Lunch: Vegetables. For this season I am loving fresh cut up tomatoes, sliced cucumbers with the skin, avocado....all sprinkled with salt. Maybe fruit for dessert.

 

Snacks: Sometimes more veggies and fruit, sometimes celery and hummus, sometimes yogurt, sometimes dried fruit....kombucha!

 

Dinner: Something kid friendly. I usually like quinoa or rice with meat or beans and lots of veggies. Sometimes I just eat a nice local cheese and some veggies.

 

I do occasionally eat ice cream in the evenings. Or dark chocolate!
 


Joyful mama of 3.
