  • No need to apologize... that's what we're here for... to read your food journal.
  • I think I have a go at this. Actually I have been keeping a journal, just haven't been posting it.

    Monday 1/6

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

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

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

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

    Swedish Meatball Lean Cusinie

    piece of ice cream cake

    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)
