I think I have a go at this. Actually I have been keeping a journal, just haven't been posting it.


Monday 1/6

Breakfast:
1 tea w/ no-cal sweetener and about an oz. of milk
1 bowl of instant oatmeal
Multi-Vitamin & calcium supplement

Snack:
Non-fat yogurt ~Had a bite of this then decided on a mini peppermint patty instead.

Lunch:
about a 1/2 can Tuna & crackers
about 8 little cheddar cheese cubes
non-fat vanilla pudding ~didn't get to eat this

Snack:
Fat free Apples & Cinnamon muffin (about 120 cal.) ~wasn't at my desk long enough to eat this.

Dinner:
Swedish Meatball Lean Cusinie

Snack:
piece of ice cream cake :o

Snack at 2:30am:
handful of mint M&Ms

But that is the plan - I will come back and make changes. I don't think it is going to be a particularly good day at work so it will either be less food (too busy) or more (stressed and eating chocolate) :p
