Well we are finally back on the up swing from the tummy eww that was going on in the house. So here is today's menu:

Breakfast-skipped again because DH forgot to set the alarm and we flew to church.

Lunch- Elbow macaroni with spagetti sause, and ground hamburger in it. Basically spagetti with meat sauce, but I used elbows instead of spagetti noodles, with a huge glass of water.

Dinner-We picniced at the lake to watch fireworks at the Dam. I brought my own cooler so I did good. I had tuna salad on wheat bread, carrots, blueberry yogurt that was 99% fat free, and a real Pepsi with all the calories and fat and it was wonderful (I promised myself one every Sunday if I am really good all week) When the pepsi was gone I drank an apple juice then water.

Snack- One smore, just one I did it!!!! And 2 more roasted marshmellows.

Water was at 64 oz today!

Exercise was playing frisbee, soccer, and tag with all the kids at the lake.

Tomorrow is weigh in so I am hoping to see a positive result.

Jess

Okay on the nutrition label it says there are 40 calories to every 8 oz. So that means I had 120 calories for the day I think.

Is that high for a drink product?

I have been using the fitday web tool, and I have struggled to get my calories both days I have charted. I know that almost 50% of my food intake is carbs, so I need to get everything more in sync, so that I am eating more protein, and less fat and carbs.

I don't want to cut carbs out completely, but how many is a healthy level?

Ugh this is getting complicated, but I know I just need the education...How exactly do healthy people eat???

Okay I think I had a good day, but we will see...hehehe

Breakfast-3/4 of cup of Raisin Bran with 1 cup 2% milk. A 32 oz glass of crystal light tropical punch to drink.

Lunch-tuna salad sandwich with lettuce on whole wheat bread, a light yogurt, and some pretzals.

Snack-2 snack crackers and 4 chips ahoy cookies. (okay I splurged there...better than the whole bag I would have eaten a few weeks ago...no excuse, but just saying)

Dinner-turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread, ripple potato chips, yogurt, and a 32 oz glass of WATER!!

Total water for the day was 56oz.

We walked for about 2 hours tonight (gentle steady walk looking a 6 houses with our realtor).

It isn't bad.....but you could be on the road to weight loss by eliminating 120 calories from your diet.
