Exercise: 30 min elliptical machine for 2.03 miles: -2

I found that I wanted something sweet at the end of the day... I tried tea. Drank water. I ended up eating about 6 frosted mini wheats--but didn't count them.

It's hard to be back on points.

I need to figure out what exercise I'll do this week... It's passover next week which means crazy eating... we're invited to two Seders.


Trying to get back to normal life, if there is such a thing.

Was 164 on doc's scale this morning --fully dressed, after many coffees/breakfast. Was 158.5 on home scale yesterday. I don't know how that's possible since I ate pound cake for snacks for several days.

Breakfast: egg+egg white, OO, spinach, onion, zucchini, splash of milk, feta: 4

Morning snack: bag o' veggies: 0

Lunch: whole wheat tuscan bread (2), turkey (2), mayo (1), apple (1): 6

Afternoon snack: yogurt (2) with fiber one (1): 3

Afternoon walk: 1.5 miles... 20 min or so...
Driving home was starving: z bar (2)

Dinner: Doug bought the wrong veggie burgers (4), wild rice (2), salad w/edemame, cherries, dressing (2): 8

skinny cow: 2

Total for the day: 25. I'm a little annoyed, but whatever. Day is over.

Finally Friday...

I didn't have a chance to make my usual high-protein breakfast. It's 10:30 and I'm already hungry!!

Breakfast (6:45 a.m.): 1 c fiber one, 1 c skim milk, mango & 1/2 banana: 5

morning snack (11a.m.): apple (1), yogurt (2), dried cherries (.5): 3.5

Lunch: small salad with edemame (1), slices of deli turkey (2): 3

Afternoon snack: beet salad:2

Dinner: Quick Pita, chicken pita (5), falafel (3)
Dessert: small piece home-made chocolate cake (5)

Total of 26.5. Not bad for a kind of splurge dinner.

Day 3: eating out success

breakfast: egg+eggwhite (2), lots of veggies (0), tsp OO (1), feta cheese (1): 4

Morning snack: apple: 1
Lunch: salad w/tuna & edemame: 3

30 min brisk walk: -2

Afternoon snack: Fage 0% + 1/2 c Fiber One (3), sweet potato (3), orange (1): 5

Dinner out at a work event: Caesar salad (I took out the 3 croutons and picked out the discernible pieces of cheese), but it had dressing on it 2?; crab cake (5?), 2 spears asparagus, two carrots, 1 tomato; 1/2 cup orzo (4): 11

24 for the day, but net is 22... dare I dream to have come in right at the line for points? I declined the dessert, didn't have a drink at the happy hour, and passed on the bread basket. I probably could have eaten less of the orzo, but I was hungry! And, in the end it was fine that I did. I could have gone over--used floater points. But, I didn't have to. Nice!!
