Hi! Happy New Year...

I'm new at 3Fatchicks. I have joined the group doing the Vlentine's Day challenge off the Buddy List, but I also need this thread. I don't like to write down what I eat and I tend to forget to. And I know once I'm back at work tomorrow I'll also be lazy and probably stop writing it down. But here goes:

BF: cup of coffee
cream of wheat cereal

Lunch: one stuffed pepper (homemade w/turkey burger, I've figured the calories at 200 a pepper)
handful of grapes

Snack: Pria powerbar

Dinner: one stuffed pepper
small salad with light dressing (measured)
glass of skim milk

Snack: yogurt

and then later I'll also have tea Bigelow Sweet Dreams is excellent!

And yes...I've had tons of water in between.

I'll estimate the calories at: 1,300 WOW that's pretty low, but I think that's a well balanced day.
