oooh, fun! this is somewhat typical, but i rotate my calories (3 days low, 1 high) and yesterday was a "low calorie" day.

meal 1: 2 whole eggs, multigrain english muffin, 1oz 2% cheese, all fruit
meal 2: 4oz grilled chicken breast on about 4 cups of salad greens, 1 c of tomatoes, balsamic vinaigrette
meal 3: 1 cup of fage 0% yogurt & 1 cup of frozen raspberries
meal 4: 4oz pastrami, 2 slices of ww bread, 1oz mozzarella, a ton of lettuce, 1 tsp light hellman's mayo
meal 5: 4oz boneless skinless chicken thigh (roasted) which i chopped up and microwaved with a tsp of honeycup mustard and a cup+ of broccoli.
meal 6: 1/2 c milk, 1/2 c water, 1 scoop of ON choco protein powder

(I should have had an apple or banana, too, but I forgot to take one with me yesterday.)

a "high calorie" day would be 2200-2500 cals: i would have another fruit and more veggies, a serving of oatmeal, and 20-40g more protein.

I have not had a good week so far...so here is a typical day for me when I'm doing better

coffee (3tbls cream): 2puts
banana: 2pts.

Pear: 2pts

Apple: 1pts
1/2 sandwich: 6pts
1/2 salad :6pts
(this must have been at Panera breads)

WW Entree: 5 pts.

My late-night-i-stay-up-until 2am-second-dinner
Soup: 3
Fiber one bar: 2 pts.

Its pretty normal for me to have a lot of points left at the end of a day and have two dinners or a really big dinner. I hate breakfast and most often don't wake-up early enough to have one or just have coffee and fruit

B- protein shake & bar
L- asian veggie patty with pineapple, lettuce, tomato, red onion, and some of my teriyaki & ketchup sauce on wheat sandwhich thins, baked ruffles & medium tangerine
S- 1.5 cups popcorn, 4 wafers with 1.5tsp of dark chocolate peanut butter
D- turkey chili & small baked potato, both with 1 serving of shredded cheese & dollop of sour cream, breadstick & lemonade
S- few bites (approx 1/2) of hubbys beef & cheddar :P, cherry 7up

water throughout

my calorie goal is between 2,000 - 2,200

I went to a friends house for dinner otherwise I would have normally had some sort of green veggie with my meal instead of a baked potato, but I made sure that I got the smallest one. I wouldn't have normally gotten a beef & cheddar after dinner either, but we ended up staying to said friends house until around 2am. Around 11pm they went for an Arby's run. I only ate about half of it and gave the rest to my husband. SO... definitely not a typical day ;) But all in all, I didn't go over too much, just about 100 cals.
