You know what is wonderful? The Internet! I put out my struggles and specific issues and in return I get a big heaping pile of support. Thanks to Cammy, Chibi, Twix and MargieAnn for your encouragement. It's just what I need. I am ready to cut out the crap. No, really. I had a dismal week in terms of eating and exercise - book club, baby shower, and a concert. I had potato chips twice, and only exercised 2 days. However, the scale is the same today as it was last week. What a relief. Its like a stay of execution!
Here's my meal plan this week. I'm sticking to it!
Breakfast - Lowfat plain yogurt, blueberries, FiberOne cereal
Morningstar Farms soy sausage
Coffee with cream
Lunch - French Barley salad (recipe here)
Half cup 2% cottage cheese
Dinner - Lima bean, corn and greens succotash
Tamale or grilled chicken, salsa
Snacks - cherries, plums, apple with peanut butter, hummus and pita
Tasty and doable, yes? Onward to a better week!
