I grabbed this Kashi bar on my way out the door to take the car to the garage...this was breakfast. I cooked Dwayne some bacon, eggs & biscuits and just didn't have time to cook my usual egg white scramble for me.
After dropping off the car and Dwayne's eye appt, we stopped by Publix to get lunch out of the deli...it was my suggestion. I didn't have anything at home to make sandwiches out of, and I figured this would be a better choice than having lunch at a restaurant like we usually do when we're out on Saturdays.
Since I only had 110 cals for breakfast, I was extra hungry at lunchtime, so I got double meat on my turkey sub on wheat. I also had about 1 Tbsp of mayo, spicy mustard, pickles, onions, banana peppers & lettuce.
This lunch would have been just fine, if I hadn't eaten 2 of Dwayne's chicken tenders, which I forgot to take a pic of.
2 chicken tenders
Later I had a banana.
Then a piece of dark chocolate.
Here's where things REALLY get stupid. I ate 200 cals worth of Lay's Salt and Vinegar potato chips.
With the sodium problem.
Eating chips to begin with.
And SALT and vinegar ones to boot.
Guess what's next? 2 pieces of the leftover bacon from Dwayne's breakfast. The fact that it says "low sodium" on the BACON package after those chips is laughable. And I forgot to take a pic of the actual pieces I ate, so I grabbed a pkg of bacon out of the freezer for my pic.
I made Dwayne some baked chicken with lemon pepper marinade and some Pasta Roni garlic & olive oil angel hair pasta that he LOVES. I had an egg white scramble with 4 egg whites, 3 oz. of plain baked chicken, mushrooms, onions, red bell peppers & 1/4 c. of 2% shredded cheese.
I had 2 c. of decaf coffee w/ 2 Tbsp. of sugar-free Coffeemate hazelnut creamer tonight.

So there you have it.
Here's the cool part. Apart from the fact that the choices could have been WAY better....I'm still pretty darn proud of the fact that I came in under 1800 cals on a SATURDAY. That hardly ever happens, so all in all, today was a victory. :)
Tomorrow's going to be tricky. I found out a couple of days ago that we're having a going away dinner for an extended family member of mine that's headed off to the Army next month. This is going to be one of those fat-laden, family reunion-type dinners. I'm taking my camera and will photograph whatever I eat, but I'm doubting I'll be able to figure out the calories since I'm not making all the food myself. The "dinner" is at 2pm. My plan is to eat lighter in the morning, and lighter tomorrow night, and hopefully I'll be able to keep this train on it's tracks. 'Nite friends. :)
