I haven’t been doing a good job recently of taking pictures of my meals so my goal this week is to rectify that. Hoping to log a complete story every day. I’ve found that it is way less likely I cheat when I do this, so it is a good practice to get into.
Here’s what I had to eat today:

Breakfast was a bowl of instant oatmeal with peanut butter, a banana and a yogurt. I can’t remember now who the blogger is I follow who adds peanut butter to their oatmeal but this was the first time I tried it and it was yummo! However, calorie count does go up, estimate for breakfast is 450 calories.
For lunch I had my now traditional foot-long veggie sub on white with spicy mustard, lettuce, tomatoes, olives, jalapenos, spinach, extra cucumbers (I pretend it’s the meat!) vinegar, salt and pepper. I had a bag of apple slices instead of the chips and added a yogurt. Estimate of 360 calories. I had a Zone Perfect protein bar for an afternoon snack – 200 calories.
Dinner was a big salad with romaine lettuce, carrots, fresh jalapeno, a cucumber, a sweet red pepper, a few mushrooms and half a fennel bulb. Dressed with salt, pepper and balsamic vinegar. Small glass of spicy v8. Yogurt for dessert. Unfortunately my wife didn’t buy the low-cal yogurt so it was 170 calories all by itself. Total estimate for dinner 370 calories, total for the day only 1380 calories. I probably should have had some protein with that salad but I didn’t have any cooked chicken breasts to throw on top of it.
As I wrote in my weekly update (did you see I lost 2 pounds?!) I was planning on going to Chicago tomorrow and having a difficult week with planned group lunches and dinners. Because of the weather forecast I ended up canceling my trip – which I’m bummed about, but on the bright side I will be more easily in control of my health this week and should have no excuses for not exercising and eating right. Other than the fact I feel like I am starting to get sick.
So how do you think I did? Click a star!
