Default Tuesday, February 5th

Breakfast:
1/2 of a fair-sized bagel - 3pts
2 tsp Smuckers No Sugar jam - 0 pts
TEA that I walked to the corner store to buy!!!

Lunch:
3 oz water packed tuna - 2 pts? I don't feel like looking it up.
1 tbsp FF mayo - 1 pt
1/2 Claussen Kosher dill pickle chopped and mixed in - 0 pts
2 regular bread, toasted - 4pts

Dinner:
Shepherd's pie planned

Had one piece (4x4"), figure it worked out to about 6 points. (Extra lean ground beef, gravy from a mix, instant potatoes, frozen veggies...told you I was low on groceries!)

So I'm at approx. 16 points today. Kinda low...guess I'll have a cup of tea and a few crackers or something later.

Ew, today won't be pretty since I'm sick...
I'm following a loose version of WW (I worked there for 3 years - I know how it works well enough to be creative).

Breakfast: 1/2 banana (1pt) and 1/2 a cuppa mint tea (0)

Lunch: Most likely a bowl of mashed potatoes (4ish pts) and some butter (2pts)

Dinner: Who knows at this point. I can pretty much promise it will be bland and soft though! Currently I'm thinking it'll be rice with cream of mushroom soup in it...

I should feel better tomarrow I hope

Default Wednesday, February 6th

Breakfast:
1 tea biscuit - 3pts
1 tsp butter - 1pt
Smuckers No Sugar Jam, 2 tsp = 0pts

Lunch:
Leftover Shepherd's pie - 4pts

Well, I have a max of 27 pts, used 11, so that leaves 16 for dinner. We're having pizza. I'm going to have 2 slices of veggie pizza and call it a night.

I didn't end up having a snack last night, so it should all even out in the end.

Unhappy February 6, 2002

Ooooooooohhhhhhhh....I don't even want to talk about what I ate today...What I ate? What didn't I eat? Let me try to remember everything...
1 egg cracked over sliced onions sauted in a little olive oil
2 slices whole grain toast w/butter and (the evil bear strikes again) honey
Bowl of Kashi with raspberries and skim milk
4 pcs grilled salmon sushi
2 more slices whole grain toast, this time with PEANUT butter and honey
Baked potato chips dipped in hummus

I'm still stuffed...but I did make a delicious and healthy carrot-parsley salad today, so if I eat anything later it'll be that.

Who votes for deporting the honey bear?


******
February 7: Just as a note...I actually didn't eat anything the rest of the day. I actually limited myself to the 10,000 calories I had already eaten .

Oh Punkinseed, I meant to ask you, how do you prepare your polenta? I've only ever made it fried -- greasy and high fat, high calorie -- or more dietetic, like an eggplant parm, baked with low-fat mozzarella and sauce on top. I like it, though, so I'm curious to know what else can be done with it (and I have a package in my fridge that needs to be cooked soon).

Ruthie - To cook my polenta I use olive oil spray and my wonderful Wearever non-stick pans. I use just enough to give them a little crunch, but not slather the pan. I buy the kind that's already made and in really firm "logs" so it's just slice n' brown them a little.

Ok, food for the day...

Breakfast:
2 pc cracked wheat sourdough (yea Trader Joes!!!) (2pt)
butter (2pts)
cottage cheese (2 pts)
green tea with ginsing!!! Woooo! WHO NEEDS CAFFEINE????

Lunch:
homemade chicken noodle soup (6pts)
pretzles (2pts)
left over grilled veggies from last night (0)

Schnack:
bananananananana (2pts)

Dinner:
Sloopy Joes!!!
Meat n' sauce (6pts)
roll (2pts)
fries (2pts)
salad w/ dressing (1pt)

27 points... still need 1 more to be at the bottom of my range. I have FF pudding - guess I'll have a little something after dinner (if I remember). Isn't that amazing??? If I REMEMBER???? Like I'd ever see a day I didn't remember to eat.... LOL!
