Good Intentions Diet Menu

Good Intentions Diet Menu

~ Monday ~

Aspirin and black coffee – It’s Monday!
Didn’t have time to fix a sack lunch. Go out for fast food.  Nibble a few French fries and eat a hot dog. Smell of fast food makes me sick. Drink a 7 up to settle my stomach and get a candy bar out of the office vending machine for energy.
Too tired to cook. Order a pizza from the delivery place
and promise to start dieting tomorrow.


~ Tuesday ~

Drat it! Overslept – Eat cold leftover pizza in the car on the way to work.
Sick – must be the pizza…
Starving! Need some food FAST! Stop at McBurger’s for chef’s salad, but by the time I get to front of line to place order, salad becomes Quarter Pounder with large fries and coke. (Boy, they sure make those fries smell good!) Er…Make that a diet coke – trying to cut down on calories!


~ Wednesday ~

Eating too much fast food – skip breakfast, starting DIET today!
Salad bar with diet dressing and water with lemon
Veggie stir fry and black coffee.
Go to bed hungry

~ Thursday ~

Starving, but determined! Low fat Granola Bar and fruit flavored yogurt – not bad, so I have another.
Weight Watcher’s frozen dinner – Think of all the calories saved!
Eat out: Filet mignon, baked potato, and salad. No sour cream on potato, (After all, I’m on a diet.) Three glasses of wine.  (He ordered a whole bottle and I can’t be impolite, can I?)


~ Friday ~

Grapefruit juice and 4 aspirin – must be the wine…
“Girl’s Day Out” – We know a great little Italian place.
Lasagna with meat sauce.  (It’s not on the diet, but what the heck, I deserve it after working all week.)
“Two-for-price-of-one” frozen margaritas and free peanuts during Happy Hour. After two margaritas and a bucket of peanuts, I’m not even hungry for dinner!

~ Saturday ~

Errands to run, things to do – don’t have time to eat!
Ditto, have dinner date for tonight anyhow. Need to be hungry.
I’ll just have a few chocolate chip cookies to keep from starving.
Land and Sea (he’s buying) – Whoops! Need a doggie bag – they give you way too much food here. No dessert, though, still on a diet – I’ll just eat half of his dessert…

~ Sunday ~

Coffee and Danish.
What the heck, it’s the weekend – another sweet roll, please!
Microwave the leftovers from dinner last night, steak and baked potato with dinner roll. (No point wasting it as expensive as it was.)
Microwave popcorn. Okay, I don’t want to spend all weekend cooking and I’m not very hungry anyhow after eating lunch. If I get hungry later, I’ll just eat some ice cream. I can start my diet next week.

  1. It is astonishing to watch people go to the burger joint and order 2 giant jumbo bacon burgers, a triple fries and a diet Coke. I frequent those places only several times a year but the overweight, diabetic, ready to have a heart attack crowd is ever present. I have to take so many pills in the morning for this, that and the other, I skip breakfast and lunch.

      I used to have terrible eating habits. I am training myself now to eat healthy, and that means 3 meals per day. I have to wait 20 minutes before food in the morning too. Some restaurants are starting to offer more healthy alternatives, but Americans want cholesterol. Even salads are loaded with high cal stuff.
