Pretty typical day…nothing special. Took advantage of Subway’s $5 for any kind of footlong deal since we were out doing the basketball practice thing when it was time for dinner.

Breakfast – Chocolate Shakeology with 8oz water, 4oz milk, a little vanilla extract and a couple drops of coconut extract

AM Snack – P90X Chocolate Peanut Butter protein bar

Lunch – 3oz Barilla Plus angel hair pasta, 3/4c Prego Heart Smart Traditional sauce (just remembered I was going to have some cucumber and Italian dressing, too, but I completely forgot)

PM Snack – forgot to have one because we ran out the door to basketball, but we ate dinner earlier than usual

Dinner – footlong Subway Gardenburger sub on whole wheat with all the veggies except cucumber (love cucumbers, just not on subs) and American cheese, light mayo and spicy mustard

Late Snack – 1/2 of the Gardenburger my son pulled of his sub because it had red peppers in it (good grief), 6oz Yoplait Light Peach Harvest, 10 Fresh Gourmet Roasted Garlic Focaccia croutons

I knew I’d be faced with pizza and cake at the end of the day so I tried to keep my meals light the rest of the day. I even skipped my afternoon snack. Big mistake. Because I had done ChaLEAN Extreme Burn It Off and Recharge in the afternoon, I was famished by the time the pizza was served. When it was all said and done I had eaten basically the same amount of calories that I burned for the day so it could’ve been worse, but I normally eat 1,000 – 1,500 calories less than what I burn. We’ll see how it all turns out when I weigh myself at the end of the week. Last week was a great success with 5.6 lbs gone. : ) I’ll be happy if I lose anything this week.

Breakfast – Chocolate Shakeology with 8oz water, 4oz 1% milk, 1/4tsp cinnamon, ice

AM Snack – P90X Chocolate Peanut Butter protein bar (they’re quite addictive, but really good for you!)

Lunch – Sandwich made with 2 slices Dave’s Killer Bread, 2Tbs hummus, 1 Weight Watchers Swiss cheese wedge, 2 large leaves romaine lettuce, 3in or so of an English cucumber, sliced; 1 banana; 2 mandarin oranges

PM Snack – nothin’

Dinner – Here’s where it gets bad…5 thin slices of pizza with black olives and pineapple (my son’s favorite) and 3 thin slices of cheese pizza (so the equivalent of 4 regular sized slices from a large pizza); not 1, but 2 slices of chocolate cake which was eaten at home later because there was no way I could’ve eaten anything else right after all that pizza

Late Snack – I’ve been good about avoiding eating late ever since I’ve started posting my food journal, but not this time. Here’s the ugly…my husband had left a good bit of frosting from his slice of cake uneaten and when I discovered it there all lonely on the plate as I was cleaning up I ate it without much thought other than, “Well, I guess I’m going to have to count this, too.” The unbelievable thing is that even after the extra frosting I actually considered eating a snack sized bag of M&Ms. I can say, though, that not eating it was major progress. I thought about how I would feel if I did and decided it wasn’t worth it. Whoo hoo!

Today was a bit hectic with two basketball games close together in totally different parts of town. Breakfast was easy as usual, but late and consumed in under 5 minutes. Didn’t even think about a morning snack and scarfed lunch down in between games. Not exactly the ideal way to eat. When you eat fast and on the run it doesn’t seem to register like it does when you sit down and enjoy a meal.

Breakfast – Chocolate Shakeology with 1/2Tbs peanut butter, 1tsp sugar-free caramel syrup, 4oz 1% milk, water, ice

AM Snack – didn’t happen

Lunch – 2 slices Franz Whole Grain White bread, 6 slices extra thin turkey breast, 1tsp mustard, 4oz Yoplait Light Strawberry yogurt, 1 banana

PM Snack – P90X Chocolate Peanut Butter protein bar

Dinner – 4oz (weight when raw) chicken breast, 2c broccoli, 1/2c sliced mushrooms, 1Tbs light soy sauce, 2Tbs Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki sauce, 1tsp cornstarch, 1/4c water, dash ground ginger, sprinkle of black pepper, 1tsp chili garlic sauce, 1/2c cooked short grain rice (would’ve preferred brown rice, but my family’s not sold yet and we were out anyway)
