Good morning Barb. Hope the sleeping continues. I find I eat better when I have had sleep. Had a nice dinner at my sons last night. I was concerned my brother was going to be there but my son forgot to invite him. SO now I wont see him until December 22nd. There will be so many people I can avoid him.

Yesterday I forgot to put my fitbit on when i went for a long walk with the dog. SO my numbers are low. Try better today

That menu looks great, Barb!  Enjoy your transition day before the new regime. :)

Friday was my last day of work before a bit of vacation.  The only days I'm going in to work this month are December 6, 9, 10, 11, and 16.  However, I'm going to have to do a bit of work tomorrow just to make sure I don't spend my first four days off worrying.

I'm leaving this afternoon for my mom's place and I'll be there from tonight until Wednesday.  As a way of remembering my grandmother who died in October, we're going to have several days of Christmas baking - we're going to do all of her German recipes, plus we'll do the recipes we've added in over the years (including one I came up with last year).  I'm very excited about it, because we're making them to mostly give away, or to have on hand at our houses for entertaining.  I'm a little nervous though.  Last year around this time I had just had surgery and was off for six weeks, and I did Christmas baking - and I had absolutely no desire to eat anything I had baked.  I made tons of cookies and didn't even eat one, didn't want one.  This year it's different.  So I hope I'm not setting myself up here. 

But I have a strategy: I am going to plan good meals and snacks and prepare them all in the morning before starting the baking, and I will turn to them while baking.  I'm going to make sure to include lots of veggies for nibbling between meals when I get the craving to nibble on the goodies (cucumbers, etc.) and a couple of the things we're making (chicken spread) are actually very WLS-friendly.  I'm determined to do this right.  I'm also going to make sure to take protein shakes, light ricotta cheese and what's left of the berries in the fridge with me since the ricotta and berries is a comfort food and treat for me.  And I might take a few protein bars too, in case I get attacked by a sweet tooth while baking.  Half a protein bar can generally make that subside.


B - Premier Protein shake

S - 1/2 cup fat-free Greek yogurt with 2 tbsps dried cranberries and 1 oz almonds

L - Tim Horton's chili (I'll probably be out doing some shopping before going to Mom's)

S - More light ricotta/vanilla/splenda mix with 1/2 cup mixed raspberries and blackberries (on the road on the way to Mom's, so it's easy to pack and I like it)

D - Not sure because I'll be at my mom's place and I don't know what she has planned, but it will be something WLS-friendly and meat-based.

S - 1 cup of skim milk and 25g Special K Protein cereal

TOTALS WITHOUT DINNER: 108g protein, 46g fat, 96 carbs, 22g fiber, 1181 calories

Hmm, guess I'll have to be careful of dinner - only 300 calories to work with, but that's okay, usually mom's dinners are pretty healthy.  Have a great day, everyone!

I'm taking a 15 minute breather so I can write out what I plan for the day.  I made it to GNC last night so picked up a few cases of shakes and some protein bars, even though I tend to not like them, they will be convenient right now.  I already shovelled the driveway, put on a load of laundry, did up the last of the real dishes since we are moving to paper plates today, help load up the trailer so he can do a dump run, emptied the rest of the cabinets and just have to carry the boxes downstairs then when he gets home, it's take down the cabinet time.  I am making my last real meal today that I can actually cook on the stove then it's in the freezer for premade meals that I made all last week.

B - protein bar

L - homemade veggie and bean soup, 2 ryvital with liverwurst and mustard

S - greek yogurt, 1/4 cup fresh pineapple

D - grilled salmon, roasted butternut squash salad(made it last night and it looks and smells great)

Think I may have a big ass glass of red wine tonight too.
