    Good morning! Woke up in a really good mood for some reason. Lately I have been more active around the house and that may have something to do with it. Also have gone 4 days having an 8P cut off time w/ my food and I feel proud of myself.

    Breakfast was 3/4 C oatmeal w/ 1/2 apple diced, sweetener, cinnamon and Butter Buds (really good)
    The other half of the apple.

    Lunch will be 1C cottage cheese w 3/4 C canned diced tomatoes
    carrots and hummus.
    Sugar cookie (bc I have been craving one I will get just one from Subway)

    Dinner will be 8 oz chicken breast, broccoli and 3/4 C brown rice w a splash of soy sauce.

    Snack- banana

    Hope everyone has an awesome day!

    Hi Judy and Rachel,

    Rachel, you know this is my hobbyhorse but, could you be feeling better already from less sugar? I posted a tip which includes a list of ways sugar harms the body. It even had 2 things on it I didn't know.

    Didn't wake until 11 AM, face puffed up and hot body itching, I think I'm having a histamine reaction. Natch I forgot to weigh in because of that. I left my cell phone in the car my #1 son took to work 20 miles away. I am stuck in The Forest Primeval alone. I will use this time to get my food back on track, to clean up this house which looks like it's been searched by Homeland Security and to calm down from yesterday's upset.

    My niece's husband (they are both attorneys) got on the phone and convinced the funeral home that they would regret charging us extra for service which should have been included under the prepaid funeral deal my step-father had. He had enough emotional distance to handle something we were all ready to erupt over. Beware the funeral industry.

    I forgot to weigh in,

    Breakfast
    .5 C. Rolled oats
    .5 C. blueberries
    .5 t. cinnamon

    Rachael - ok, I am going to walk on my treadmill too, but not for 40 mins. Maybe 20. Thanks for doing so good. It helps all of us I think to know how good your doing, makes us want to do better. Right gang??!!!

    Right Aus,

    Your breakfasts are always fruit and coffee, no protein no grain. Don't you get hungry fast after that? My oatmeal keeps me feeling full longer because of the soluble fiber. Don't cherries go through you fast?

    .5 oz walnuts
    1 peach.

    My brother was cooking all day long at Mom's house yesterday. Huge roasts, cheesy casseroles, cakes and fatty dips were all around me. And at 5 they break out the alcohol, I am in for a tough week. Glad to have a day at home today.

    Smoochies,

    Help!

    I am craving carbs crazily!

    lunch
    turkey and cheese sandwich on whole wheat

    then
    2 more slices of whole wheat buttered.

    I was not going to eat like this today, but I am out of control. I still feel itchy all over. I guess I'll try to go for a walk.

    Judy, I admire the way you even measure your fruit. I need to do that.

    Where is everybody else today?

    Smoochies,

    Hi Sharon is that bread 100 % whole grain or wheat bread
    I know when I have any breads it causes me to have cravings for more especially breads that aren;t 100% whole grain

    I find that if I measure or weigh everything I will get a more accurate calorie count .. I started doing this much later in my journey I was measuring grains and meats but the fruit I was eyeballing but it turned out I was eating more than I thought what I saw as a small apple turned out to be a large one LOl once I started weighing them ..

    Sharon, I hear you. Carb craving is a pain. I've found that for me, if I eat carbs much at all, I will crave them. Wheat is the worst. Believe it or not, but I am far less hungry with a little lunch meat and cheese, or two hard boiled eggs, than with a sandwich with bread.

    jis4judy replied to jis4judy's response:
    Sharon one more thing it is helpful to have your turkey and cheese folded into a romaine lettuce leaf in place of bread
    I sometimes do that with things like chicken or tuna salad save calories and carbs
