    Breakfast:

    1/2 an egg - 1 point
    1/2 slice (25g) extra lean ham - 0.5pts

    mustard - 0 pts
    1 cup calcium fortified orange juice - 2pts

    Yes, I said HALF an egg. I beat it, cook it in a 6" frying pan, flip it like an omelette, then cut it in half. Fits perfectly on the WW bread. I saved the other half of the egg and the ham for tomorrow.

    Lunch:
    1 banana - 2pts
    Astro Strawberry Yogurt - 3 pts (not the low fat version...I don't like the aspartame taste in those. I'd rather spend the 3 points and really enjoy it!)
    9 medium pretzel twists - 2 points

    Dinner:
    3 oz chicken (with Shake n Bake BBQ Glaze ) - 3 pts
    3/4 cup yellow beans - 0 pts
    1 cup brown rice - 4 pts

    Lidian!
  • Good idea Wildfire! I am just counting calories, which I'll put in parentheses. I need to aim for about 1200-1300 or else I don't lose.

    B: 1 Source yogurt (50)
    1 piece high fiber raisin bread (dry) (95)
    4 oz skim milk (in coffee) (40)
    Total: 185

    L: 1 veggie burger (107)
    1 bun (130)
    1 frozen fruit popsicle (55)
    Total: 292

    Subtotal so far: 482

    S: 2 cups shredded mini wheats (counting as 250, roughly)

    D: flax flakes (I cup 130 cals), skim milk & tsp sugar (60 total), total 190

    S: chocolate peppermint left from weekend (150)

    total thus far: 1092, let's call it 1100 so I have 100-200 left. Will have a few sugar free popsicles (some are 20 cals, some 45, so a combination of these). A very cereal-y day I know! But that is what I felt like having and it was whole grain anyway!

    See you tomorrow!
