I'm starting the journal for Thursday early and will update over the day. It actually started out well - I didn't "forget" to eat breakfast today. LOL

Thursday, Dec. 13, 2001 (it's a very blue day)

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.

OK, I'll post the rest, including the nibble event that I attended today. Ouch! That one really hurt.

Lunch:
Salad 0 pt.
1.5 T Salad Dressing 3 pt.
Turkey 2 pt.
Stuffing 3 pt.
Cranberry sauce 1 pt.
Potatoes 3 pt.
Gravy 4 pt.
Bread Pudding w. sauce 2.5 pt.

Break Time (which came right after lunch):
Munchies (1 of this and that) adds up to 3.25 pts.

Water: 7 glasses, total

Soooooo, that brings me to 24.25 points already today. That would be 1.25 points over, even before supper. Looks like 0 pt. soup tonight...and, yes, Sassy, some time on the dreaded treadmill. Oh, I feel the hurt already.

Update: I didn't get home from work until 9:30, then had to get ready for a bake exchange today. Soooo, the point is that I didn't eat anything more, so....

Total Points: 24.25

I know today will be a bad day, but I am hoping to contain it to being just a few points over. Here's the start:

Breakfast:
coffee with sweetener and milk 1 pt.
remembered to take all my vitamins, etc. this morning, too

Lunch:
Garden soup 0 pt.
diet pop 0 pt.

Here's the proposed supper menu. I thought I would post it ahead of time, and then see how much will power I have. LOL

Supper:
appetizer 1.5 pt. (didn't eat this) 0 pt.
smoked chicken 1.5 pt.
beets 0 pt.
beans 0 pt.
vinaigrette 2 pt.
chicken breast 5 pt.
gravy 3 pt.
asparagus 0 pt.
mushrooms 0 pt.
truffle cake (1/2 piece) 5 pt.
1/2 of a small cookie .75 pt.
bun 3 pt.
1/2 tsp butter .5 pt.
coffee 2 pt.

Water: 8 glasses

Total Points: 23.75 pt.

This will leave me some room to adjust for how the food is actually cooked and how much fat there is. That's the plan, I'll know later how close I come to it.

I didn't quite stay within points, but that is OK for a special occasion. I will be careful over the weekend to make up for it.

Well, this week is easier than last. I think I will be able to stay OP for most of the week. Just one lunch party that I forgot about, but it shouldn't be too hard to eat right. They usually have lots of fresh veggies and stuff. It's the trifle that usually does me in, but I think I will just sniff it this year. LOL

Here's the start of my journal for today:

Tuesday, Dec. 18, 2001

Point Range: 18 - 23

Breakfast:
coffee 1 pt.
toast (2 sl. high fibre, low fat) 1 pt.
2 T jam 2 pt.

Snack:
coffee 1 pt.

Lunch:
Ninh Kieu (this is a Vietamese place). The meal that I usually eat here is 22 points, so this time, I will eat half and have half of it packaged. I think I will also make a substitution that will eliminate some of the deep fried stuff.

shrimp (2) .5 pt.
spring rolls (1 small) 3 pt.
beef (1/2 sl.) 1.5 pt.
chicken (1/2 sl.) 1 pt.
noodles (1 1/2 cup) 7 pt.
vegetables 0 pt.
sauce (1/4 c.) 1.5 pt.
tea 0 pt.

That's the plan so far, and also drinking water. We'll see how it works out a bit later.

Update: Well, I ate a little more than half, so the results say lunch totals 14.5 pt. Will need to be careful this afternoon.

Snack:
orange 1 pt.

Water: 6 glasses - need to work on the water...

Total Points: 20.5 points
