So...here's #2!

It seems I splurged a bit on the cals with a bag of salt & pepper chips at lunchtime, but the biggest shocker to me was that the 2 slices of whole wheat bread (thinking I chose well) contained 256 calories!!! Who woulda thunk it! Oh well, I've finished off with approx 600 calories to spare to stay in my range, but want to get a good jog in after work to feel as if I burned the chips off. I guess it will balance out since I was way under yesterday.

Breakfast: 1 serving old fashioned oats with the equivalent of a small box of raisins, 1 pkt. Splenda and 1/2 a 6" banana. Followed by a 6oz serving non-fat milk and 4 tbs ovaltine. Total: 491

Lunch: Tuna sandwich with 1tbs light mayo, 1tsp yellow mustard, water-packed tuna extra tomatoes, and 2 large leaves romaine. Accompanied by All Natural Dirty Potato Chips (couldn't find here, but logged as regular potato chips which had 320 cal, although mine only had 280). Total: 832 cal (Guess this will be my "big" meal of the day)

This leaves me with about 600 or so calories to spare for the rest of the evening so looks like I'm in good shape. I plan on something around boneless, skinless chicken breast with steamed spinach and brown rice. We'll see where that puts me at the end of the day.

I'm liking the idea of photo blogs so I shall see if this helps get that scale going back DOWN again!

Have a happy & healthy weekend!!

    Nice pics! I am a whole foodie. When I eat oatmeal it is the real deal: Irish Steel Cut Oatmeal. I add flax seed, 1/2cup banana, 1/2 cup strawberries, and my new favorite: hemp seeds! YUMMM

    I am highly sensitive to refined carbs in any form no matter how "healthy" the manufacturer says they are. Anything processed that heavily cannot be healthy. It tastes great but leads me to a binge. I can't afford the low-nutritional cals.
