Breakfast – Chocolate Shakeology made with water, 4oz 1% milk, ice – tomorrow I’m making an actual Shakeology recipe no matter what the kids say 🙂

AM Snack – P90X Chocolate Peanut Butter protein bar

Lunch – 6c romaine lettuce, 2 1/2oz extra thin sliced turkey breast, 1 slice Swiss cheese, 1 Pink Lady apple, 2Tbs ranch dressing

PM Snack – 1/2c lowfat cottage cheese, 9oz (including pods) edamame – I’ve always been a bit afraid to try it despite all the great things I’ve heard because it resembles lima beans and I REALLY don’t like lima beans. OK, I hate them. But, the edamame was delightful! I loved it and with low calories, tons of protein and fiber why wouldn’t I?

 Dinner – 1 Foster Farms Hot N’ Spicy chicken wing section, 4oz bowtie pasta, 1c Prego Heart Smart sauce, 4c romaine (I ate a lot of salad today!), 1Tbs. Wishbone Italian dressing, 10 Fresh Gourmet Roasted Garlic croutons (Have you had these? They’re SOOOOO good. Got them at Costco. Actually that’s where I got the romaine, Prego, chicken wings, edamame, cottage cheese, apples, ranch dressing and turkey, too.)

Total Calories – 1894, Protein – 120 grams, Carbs – 233 grams, Fat – 59 grams, Fiber 33 grams

Quick post today. What? You thought I meant something else? 😉 That can burn a lot of calories, too. But, on to the real reason I’m posting. Today I got to walk with a friend who brought her dog along, too. It was cold, but bright and beautiful. Of course, I had to take a photo of “the tree”. No birds were there today, rude or otherwise. As with all most posts, scroll over the image for more info.

There were lots of people out walking, running, taking their dogs to the dog park. Here in the Northwest we have to take advantage of the sun whenever we get a chance, especially in winter.

I don’t have any deep philosophical thoughts to share today. Just happy to be alive and able to walk around outside taking in the fresh air and sunshine, enjoying good coversation with a friend. Now it’s time to get some care packages together to send over to soldiers in Afghanistan as a “thank you” for putting their lives at risk so we can do things like go for a walk whenever we want to or post whatever we want to say for the world to read. What will you choose to do with your freedom today?
