Especially if you are a telemarketer from South Carolina who has the guts to ask an Iowan how the weather is...
Today was an interesting day. Morning started out rough, with the accmulated snow and ice needing to be scraped off of the car. I left the house 20 minutes early, and it barely was early enough. The roads were awful in town, but cleared up by noon.
The diet has been going surprisingly well. I think I am more motivated than I can ever remember being about losing weight. I am going to make this work. Follow the program, learn to make good choices, and take off the damn weight. I am not as hungry as I was last week at the beginning of this. Part of that is timing and content of snacks. :)
Anyway, today's totals:
Breakfast: shredded wheat - 3 pts
Morning snack: Fat-free pretzels - 2 pts.
Lunch: Smart Ones Chicken Alfredo - 7 points (not terrible, but not the best)
Broccoli - 0
One slice of bread - 1 point
Snack (3:00): animal crackers - 3 pts
Dinner: 3 oz baked chicken - 3 pts
8 oz steamed potatoes with butter spray and Lawry's Salt (oh yummy!) - 3 pts (this was a serious amount of potatoes, if you've never measured. almost too much to eat)
winter mix vegetables - 0
Evening snack (8 pm) - pretzels - 2 points
Totally not hungry now at all.
Total: 24 points - very good!
