L-5 bites pot pie
D-5 bites trip tip and baked potato

Today was fine. Was supposed to go grocery shopping but instead I decided to stay home and shop my home insurance. What a waste of time...I will definitely go shopping tomorrow.

Sherri - Sounds like you're off to a good start! I also like my coffee with Splenda and CoffeeMate. I hope to eventually switch to black, but I haven't managed that yet. I'm losing so I'm not too worried yet about a few extra calories.

Spryng - I guess you're on vacation now? Hope you have a great time! Do you plan to stay strict on 5 Bite?

Dmac - Glad to hear you've had a good day. Hopefully that means it was an easy day!

Jesabelle - Pot pie sounds sooooo good! Dealing with the insurance companies takes so much time, hopefully you're done with that.

I'm staying strong, sticking to 5 bites. They are often big bites, but only 5.

Today was my last day of work so technically vacation starts tomorrow but it's not a real vacation... just 10 days off. I don't have anything planned other than entertaining my parents and thanksgiving. I do plan on being strict on 5 bite except for thanksgiving of course Smile If I can just maintain next week I'd be thrilled Smile Is there anyone here planning to be strict on thanksgiving?

Here is my meals today:

B- nothing
L- 5 bites chicken and stuffing casserole
D- 5 bites popcorn chicken with bbq sauce

I am over goal on my steps today as well, I hope it pays off on the scale this week. I have a list a mile long to do in the morning before my parents and everyone arrives (we will have a house of 8 kids for a week! can you say earplugs and a padded room is in order? LOL)

B-coffee
L-5 bites greek yogurt and strawberries
D-5 bites pep pizza

treadmill and ellliptical combined 45 minutes. Today was pretty easy. I was looking forward to my lunch that I almost had an early lunch. The greek yogurt is amazing. I just add whatver fresh or frozen fruit I haveon hand in the yogurt and then sprinkle Truvia on it. It tastes like whip cream and it seems as though I'm really indulging. Yummy!!!!

Spryng-It will be nice to have those 10 days off. Do you have any day trips planned or are you just going to stay around home with your family.

Dmac-I'm with you-I feel as though we have earned the right to eat a little more yummy stuff than usual.

Insanity-Yes, done with the insurance stuff and going to stick with the same company. I swear after I was done getting quotes my phone rang off the hook even though I requested that I contact them if I was interested. Nothing worse than desperate insurance agents (lol, I'm sure there are, but as of that minute they seem like they're the worst)

Well mom and I will be venturing out on black friday then sometime that weekend we will hit a xmas tree farm to let the kids pick out a xmas tree and get it all set up etc. I'm excited. We've had a fake tree for years and it was beautiful but last year it finally died so we thought we'd go for the real thing this year and I can't wait, LOL But other than those two days no I plan to stay around the house. We may be painting - decorating the foyer this weekend so I'm excited about that Smile

Weighed in this morning!!!! Down to 134!!!

I have 9 more lbs. to go for the xmas challenge. I'm pretty sure it's attainable as long as I keep working out 3 x's a week along with 5 biting!!! I'll check in later with the daily 5 bite menu.

Today was a pretty easy day. I didn't work out, but did clean the house and that kept me moving.

B-Coffee
L-5 bites spaghetti with french bread
D-5 bites Steak with sauteed spinach

I think I might have passed my turkey phase of cravings and am now obsessing different types of pies. I am making pies for Thanksgiving and my daughter keeps suggesting different sorts of pies that she might like and she keeps sticking pictures of pies in my face. Really? Thankfully it hasn't caused me to mentally tailspin like the fried turkey commercials did Laughing

Dmac, I have never had anything from Sonic. I think the closest one to me might be in Sacramento, but it takes about 30 minutes to get there and if I am there I never think to look for one. Your menus make me want to find a Sonic next time I am out in Sac. Smile

Today's ben ez I'm a little frustrated that I won't be losing weight this week with Thanksgiving and next week with those 2 events I spoke of earlier I think about the best I can hope for is to stay even and not have a gain but like I said before gota focus everyday that I am on plan and stay on plan on those days

B-Coffee
L-5 bites salad with turkey
D-6 bites turkey chili

Today was pretty easy. We got up rather late and then my oldest daughter had a wrestling tournament so we went to that and the oly tough time was when most of the kids were eating hot dogs. Don't get me wrong, I don't really like the taste of hot dogs, but there is something about the smell...delicious Razz My chili was really good so I did take six bites instead of 5. I hope that doesn't make a huge difference. I felt a bit gulity for taking that sixth bite, but I just really wasn't ready to part with dinner until I had that 6th bite Mad
