I did well again yesterday and have already gotten in 75 minutes of exercise today (30 minute WATP DVD and 45 minutes of walking outside). I have my TOPS weigh-in tonight, so here's an idea for today's food:
healthy junk food (we're having our holiday party at TOPS tonight, so I think we'll be having turkey wraps, veggies and dip, maybe some fruit, baked tortilla chips w/salsa, stuff like that)
Subway 6" chicken teriyaki on honey oat (learned my lesson from my tummy last week not to try to eat the whole 12" anymore!)

L-turkey wrap (tortilla, turkey, red peppers, onions, cc, greens) thanks Ro!

My calories were WAY to low yesterday because I didn't know what dinner was going to be and it was way lower than average and by the time I got home from my rehearsal I was so tired I went to bed w/o a snack to up my number. I'm trying to get used to counting calories for the first time. I just did portion control before.
