I have a dream!...or at least a plan

2 days full OP and the third one is well in progress! This week has been going great. I have been sticking to my meal plan like bread on butter and I must say I feel pretty good. Last night I also went for a 50 min walk with my friend Amy and honestly it felt like we were gone for about 15 mins! It's so great to walk with an old friend and catch up. We had a great time.

Last night Scott and I came up with a REALISTIC eating plan for the weekend. Instead of chowing down on chocolate and pizza, we came up with a plan that still allows us to indulge but still keeps it all in check. We are moving into our new house this weekend (YAY!!) So we know we won't have access to our own kitchen and it will be difficult to eat in for most of the weekend. Friday night we decided we are going to eat out at Subway. It's quick, it's easy and for the most part, it is pretty healthy. Friday night is always a hard one for us so I'm glad we are hitting up Subway instead of East Side Mario's for pizza and Nachos (a total weakness of mine) Saturday we are going to stick with our normal breakfast of Fiber One cereal or cottage cheese and for lunch we are putting on a BBQ for everyone who helped us move. So far we have picked up hamburgers, chicken burgers and hot dogs. Other than that we will be picking up some pretzels, mutigrain tostitos and salsa, and a few other 'lower fat' alternatives. Has everyone tried the Tostitos Multigrain Nachos? They are awesome and have less fat and calories than the white kind. Definitely a great alternative at parties! I'm hoping that will take up most of Saturdays food consumption and Sunday I will be cooking my meals for the upcoming week so I can snack from those on Sunday. It's going to be a busy weekend but I am seriously going to try my hardest not to let it get out of hand! Any tips or suggestions???

How is everyone's week going?
2 more days and we move into our new house!!


  1. hi carolyn! i think your plan sounds great. as long as you can find healthy alternatives, you wont feel deprived. i don't know if you have trader joe's but the chili lime chicken burgers are great and only 2 points. they're big too! grilled portabello mushrooms are yummy too :) i think it sounds good though.

    i'm sure moving in will burn tons of calories. i would enjoy a glass of wine or cold beer after your hard work. :)

  2. I think your plan sounds fab. It is so doable. Yes I have tried those multi-grain nachos sooo GOOD eh?

  3. Your plan sounds great!

    Enjoy your first night in YOUR house, it's an awesome feeling. Congrats, I'm so happy for you!

  4. sounds like a good plan...what about a watermelon or two? easy to just slice it up and eat it from the rind.

    and it's a total diuretic...helps me to flush out all the extra yuck from the junky food.

    have fun moving into your house. such a great thing!

  5. Sounds like you have everything under control.... good luck with the move! Exciting stuff, a new home!

  6. I love that you plan! My husband and I have been eating Subway on Friday nights too. We don't always feel like it, but after we eat it we are glad we didn't go out for greasy Mexican food. So great plan!

    WoooHoooo how exciting about moving into your house!! YES! :D
