What are you eating/doing today (Thursday)
RNY 4 Years 7 Months Post Op
Out the door in an hour to work out with my trainer....then in to the office for what I hope is my last long day....for awhile anyway.....no groceries and no energy right now....so my eats are not my normal.....I might gain on this amount of carbs,,,,even though they are complex carbs....cant worry about it right now......
STEPS - 5250
B - 2 large mugs of regular coffee
Premier protein shake
S - 1/2 cup of three bean salad
L - Peanut butter sandwich on whole wheat bread
S - Yogurt with fruit and a bit of granola
D - leftover mashed turnips
9 low sodium triscuits
shredded habanero melted on top
Weird dinner.....but likely what I will feel like by the time I get home tonight
MYFITNESSPAL totals for the above menu are: Calories - 1,227, Carbs - 149 grams, Fat - 41 grams, Protein - 66 grams.....TERRIBLE stats......calories are Ok....but how they are derived is poor
Have a great one
You are such a busy/active person -- amazing.
B-Oatmeal with ground flax seed
S-Premier Protein shake
L- 1 Boiled egg with FF Miracle Whip
D- Extra lean minced turkey and diced tomatoes
S- 1 triangle of LF Laughing Cow cheese and half an apple (first time since surgery)
Cal-610, Carbs-31, Fat-22, Protein-76, Sugar-15, Chol-115
Good luck with the apple! I was so thrilled when I could eat fruit after surgery. Never ate much before surgery, but now they're like candy to me since I can't eat the sugary crap I used to.

I made a plan but who knows if I will eat it all. Feeling better and pain has eased up so the nausea is better as well. My fridge is pretty much empty so cleaning up the last bit of this and that so I can fill it back up tomorrow.
B - protein shake
S- crustless quiche
L - crustless quiche, ryvita cracker
S - plain greek yogurt, orange
D - 100 grams of porketta roast, 1/2 cup green beans, baked potato, pat of butter ( might lose the potato and butter, but including it in case)

Glad you're feeling better, Tracey. Looks like a great menu to me, even with the potato!
I'm glad this is the last day before the pressure at work eases for you, Barb. How the calories are derived is always the kicker, isn't it? Same with me yesterday, and it looks like this morning too - I woke up and did a crap grab for breakfast if you can imagine. My hubby brought home a couple of irresistible things and they were on the counter this morning and I just ate them. Can't believe I did that. Mornings are usually my time of great resolve for the day. Well, I'm not going to let it kill my day. I just plugged it into MFP so I can move on.
Today: Scrambling to get stuff done at work. I'm hoping to be able to take most of December off, but it's not looking promising because I have so much left to do before the end of the year, and the problem is, most of the issues are with people not getting back to me on stuff so that things can move ahead. So I'm going to be chasing people for the next couple of days, which I find stressful.
Then after work I have my art class. Missed last week's because I wasn't feeling well, so I'm hoping this week's will make up for it. I don't have much in the way of exercise planned into my day. Well, maybe I'll go for a walk at lunch or something, although I'm finding that I don't have much tolerance at all for the cold this year. I'm constantly freezing. Layering is going to be a big thing for me this winter, I think! Same old boring menu as usual for the rest of the day, but it works for me.

I wore a warm sweater, and light pants, but under the pants I have leggings AND tights! Works for me, I'm nice and toasty today.
