Hi everyone.. I am new here. I am Lori and I am in Ontario. I am going to Punta Cana in February and want to look a lot better in a bathing suit than I do today... but my ultimate goal is to be more active and healthy.

I was hoping the experts here could take a look at my day 1 and see how I did. I feel it was pretty good, but need some re-assurance.

My day looks like this

2 Eggs - Deviled
1 Cup V8 Low Sodium
Coffee with 1% milk and Splenda (only drank 1/4 of this as it was making me feel gross)

FF Turkey
LF Cheese String
Cucumbers sliced and dipped in Fat Free plain yogurt and Tzatiki dip mix (no sugar)

Homeade Chilli ( Mixed beans, ground beef, tomatoes, onions, garlic sugar free spices)
LF cheese
FF Yogurt
More Cucumbers and Dip

FF Turkey
Laughing Cow Cheese
Grape tomatos

Before Yoga Snack
10 Almonds
2 small peices of LF cheese
1 FF turkey slice
1 stick of celery
1 romaine lettuce leaf
1 FF Ham slice
small bit of mustard

Supper after Yoga
Pork Tenderloin
Brussel Sprouts
Greek Feta Dressing (lite)
1 Deviled Egg
5 Almonds

1 Can Diet Coke
64 + oz of water (my deal with myself is I can have 1 DC if I get 64 oz of water in for the day)

SO.. How did I do? I have been Calorie counting since August so this seems like a lot of food.. I hope it is okay.

It really seemed like I was eating a lot.. I have to switch up the eggs though.. I was a little squeamish this morning eating them. Maybe I will change it to one egg..

Off to check out the breakfast ideas... may as well print out recipies at work.. ;)
