I had to run up to Walmart for a money order this morning and got sidetracked by the Dagum pepperidge farms Distinctive Chocolate Cookies. Grrrrrrr..I couldn't say no. The good news is 2 cookies are 16 grams of carbs & 130 calories. That's about as much as the Southbeach bars I snack on (a few more calories) so if I have this treat in moderation, I'll be ok. BUT, I came homew and what was in the mail? My Mom sent me my FAVORITE Scottish oatmeal cookies from Byrd's Cookie Comapny from back home in Savannah. OMG @ the Holiday temptations I tell ya! I LOVE these cookies and I hardly ever get them because I don't live there anymore. Byrd's is a famous Savannah business. They've been there for years. Sigh.... MODERATION....Keep repeating this!

Okay, I am calm.... hehe...Lemme get to today's menu:
B- Coffee w/Splenda & Cream
1 c.Milk
2 egg & cheese Omlette
cooked in 1 TBSP Olive Oil
3 slices of Turkey bacon

S- 3 cookies LOL!

L- 4 oz lean Roastbeef


D- Tomato soup
5 saltines
green tea

Totals
1240 Calories
83 carbs
84 Protein

Just checking in with todays menu:

B: 4 peices of boiled ham w/ prov. cheese
S: Handful of nuts
L: EAS low-carb bar
D: Can of tuna, slice of onion, celery w/ a little mayo

I'm cutting back on my coffee - I usually have over 10 cups a day with milk or cream! I think I had 5 cups today, but skipped the dairy in it. I def. need to drink more water, probably only had 40 oz - 96 oz is impressive Beach Bum!

Good Morning Ladies

Lost some of my weight from the Luncheon on Monday. Hopefully most of it will be gone by Sat. W-I. I have to watch the sodium intake.

I heard on the Biggest Losers last night that the guy on the red team was having to much sodium so Jill told him that if he wanted to lose he has to keep sodium to a limit[300 mg per meal].Now I'm thinking that he heavier than me and is a man,what if I count down my sodium intake also. As we being woman we have to watch as it retains lots of water. Did anyone here see the show.

************************************************** **************

Todays Menu

b-green eggs & ham[egg beaters,pesta spice mix and 1 sl ham confetti] on Rev Roll 1 c soy milk

dinner-Shrimp Scampi with green beans
sn-1 c Yogurt

Supper-Italian Hero salad[salami,provolone,onion sls tomato sls on lettuce with Italian dress]1 c turkey soup.

96 oz water===================exercise on the sticky


************************************************** *********

AUD-Thats good idea to measure before the challenge and after. Thanks I will do that today.



LAURA-I never had problems drinking my water as I don't ever use soda at all. I sometime put lemon aid crystal lite in to my water for taste but that on rear occasion since we go our Blueberry Home water purifier.

Have to go, where are the other December Holiday challengers

B: 1 egg omlette w/ cheese and 2 peices bacon
S: nuts, 2 oz. of cheese
L: 1 can tuna, slice of onion, little mayo on celery sticks
D: Baked chicken with brocolli

I think I made to 80 oz of water today...I'm swimming
