Today’s weight: 215 lbs

5:15am: Morning walk – 41:54, 2.35 miles (using Zombies, Run!)
6:00am: Banana
7:30am: Jimmy Dean Delights turkey sausage egg muffin
11:30am: Healthy Choice steamer: Asian-style potstickers
2:00pm: Weight Watchers mini ice cream sandwiches (2) (they’re so tiny!) (and I have to go to the grocery store after work so this will help me stave off hunger-impulse buying!)
5:30pm: Salad (mixed greens, half an avocado, a few cherry tomatoes, some waldorf topping: raisins, walnuts, dried apples) with champagne vinaigrette
6:30pm: Pork chop, Stovetop stuffing
8:00pm: Klondike 100-calorie ice cream bar

So I’m trying a sort of live-updating process with this today, rather than posting everything at the end of the day. Possibly having an ongoing public record will help me with snack-decision-making throughout the day.

5:15am: Morning walk – 41:12, 2.26 miles (using Zombies, Run!)
6:00am: Banana
7:30am: Oatmeal with skim milk
8:30am: 2 chocolate-chip cookies (well, I needed to take my daily vitamin and you’re supposed to take it with food. Nausea averted!)
9:00am: Nonfat strawberry-banana yogurt
12:00pm: Smart Ones szechuan chicken and noodles and a Diet Snapple (lemonade/iced tea flavor)
1:30pm: 2 chocolate-chip cookies (I had 4 total left over from the batch I made last night, and I can’t just WASTE them!)
5:30pm: 3 oz penne pasta with tomato sauce and albacore tuna, salad, 2 slices of French bread, and a glass of iced tea
7:00pm: (yes, planning ahead) 1 cup Dreyer’s slow-churned mint cookie crunch ice cream with a tablespoon of lightly salted peanuts (yes, I’m weird)

All in all, a little dinner/dessert heavy, but I think a good place to start!
