Won't you join me in recording your daily food intake. I need to get myself back to journaling every day - that is how I was able to keep myself OP! I will be making a weekly journal starting on Thursday and ending on Wednesday. So this food journal will start today, Thursday 12/6 and end next Wednesday 12/12. Sometimes when you see what others are having it gives us new ideas as to what to eat. Hope to see some of you on here with me. Love, CJ

First, I need to tell you that I start my day with my dinner from the night before. I count points (WW) and it works better for me if I count dinner pts first and finish with breakfast and lunch. That way, if we go out to dinner unexpected, I am starting my daily points with a clean slate. It's much easier to "go lite" for breakfast and lunch to make up for a heavier dinner. Believe me, it works for me!

Thursday, Dec 6
(pt range: 20 - 25 pts)

Dinner 12/5:

1 small slice pizza w/ham, peppers, mushrooms (5 pts)
2 envelopes of Cream-of-Chicken "cup of soup" (3 pts)

Breakfast 12/6:

2 cups raisin bran (8 pts)
1 cup skim milk (2 pts)
2 coffees/black (0 pts)

Lunch 12/6:

1 bag lite microwave popcorn (5 pts)
1 Swiss Miss ff cocoa (1 pt)

Total points: 16
Water: 8 glasses (64 oz)

Yesterday was such a busy day, I didn't really have time to eat. I was volunteering for the Salvation Army on Monday night and for Cirme Stoppers last night. On Tues. I also practice right after work for a band that I sing in, so work melted into practice and then into volunteering. I didn't even consider any supper until after 10 pm, then I was so tired I didn't want to eat anything. Anyway, here is my journal for yesterday:

Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2001

Breakfast:
coffee with sweetener and milk 1 pt. (Keep forgetting to stop for breakfast. I will try to do better tomorrow)

Lunch:
Garden Soup 0 pt.
apple 1 pt.
coffee with sweetener and milk 1 pt.

Snack:
coffee with sweetener and milk 2 pt.

Supper:
Veggie burger 4 pt.
Bun 3 pt.
1 T. lite mayo 1 pt.
1 t. barbecue sauce .5 pt.
2 cookies 3 pt.

water: 10 glasses

Total Points: 16.5

I still didn't manage to eat all my points, but by the time I realized that, I was too tired to find anything else that I wanted. I was more afraid that if I went in the fridge to look, I would settle on some of the Christmas baking: nono:

I'll try to do better tomorrow.

Cheers,

CJ

I did a bit better on points yesterday. I at least managed to eat the minimum. This is often a struggle for me because it seems that I don't have time to eat. The next 2 days will be difficult because they are filled with Christmas parties and dinners. That's where I really have difficulty managing to stay OP.

Breakfast:
Coffee with sweetener and milk 1 pt.

Lunch (shovelled down at my desk):
Garden Soup 0 pt.
Salad 0 pt.
FF salad dressing 0 pt.
apple 1 pt.

Snack:

Supper:

Breakfast:
Coffee with sweetener and milk 1 pt.
Toast (2 sl. high fibre, low fat) 1 pt.
1 T. jelly 1 pt.

That's all so far. I am on my way to the fridge to get some water, though. That will be the start of my water consumption for today.

Peggy: I was going to copy your start for today onto the new thread but then I thought "gee, she won't be able to edit it ..." duh ..... so, you'll have to do that - ok?

Have a good day!
