Another week, a fresh start! Welcome to the new ladies. I was wondering where you got your digital food scales? How much could I expect to pay for one?
To the ones we've lost over the weeks: it's never too late to come back! I love this thread b/c it gives me new meal ideas, and it keeps me honest. Don't be too afraid of Jill, she yells because she loves! And I wouldn't have her any other way.
Let's have a great week everyone!
10 oz coffee
8 oz light soy milk
2 small slices lasagne
12 baby carrots
half a cucumber, sliced
1/4 cup buttermilk ranch salad dressing
SAPF: I've had my Salter digital scales for over 10 years and brought them with me when I moved here. I didn't buy the cheapest on the market but I've used them almost every day (even when not dieting) and they are still as accurate as the day I got them, so were well worth it. I doubt they even make the ones I have any more, but I found this link: http://www.chefsresource.com/digital...en-scales.html.
Breakfast: Banana shake (½ cup plain 2% yogurt, ½ cup 0% milk, 6 oz banana, dash vanilla extract). Lunch: 2 thin slices ham and 1¼ oz cheddar on 68 g whole-grain bread, green salad with 1 tblsp. sliced almonds. Snack: Pea cup-a-soup, 4 Wheatine crackers. Dinner: 3½ oz chicken breast, 3 potato patties, 1 cup peas, ½ cup strawberries, 60 ml Safeway Light Whipped Topping. Drinks: 500 ml coffee, 2½ litres water.
Total kcals: 1333 (not incl. free veggies)
Exercise: 1.26 mile walk. Not nearly enough.

SAPF, I love my digital scale. I just measured out carrots tonight and thought, my goodness is that all that 1 serving looks like?! I apparently have been eating for a family of four for years! Oh yeah, I knew that already...
Breakfast: 1 serving frosted mini-wheats, 1/2 cup blueberries, skim milk
Thanks for starting this week's thread, SAPF (even if you've removed the element of fear by suggesting I have a heart)
Sorry about the toe, CassandraA. Hope it heals quickly. On a happy note though, I see you've bought fruits and veggies!! I have to admit I've wanted to ask you for the longest time where the produce is in your diet!
Claire, substituting couscous for fries is certainly worthy!

He did awesome! As part of his test he broke two boards with two different kicks-the roundhouse and the ax kick. Very cool! )
