pre-bus snack: banana and coffee emoticon
post bus breakfast: cheerios and milk emoticon
snack: mandarin orange and almonds emoticon
lunch: ham & cheese ciabatta, caesar salad emoticon Although, I had to have a spinach salad because my romaine lettuce committed suicide.
snack: apple and yogurt emoticon decided to have my baby bel at this time instead.
dinner: Olivieri pasta, rosee sauce, caesar salad emoticon No salad, tho'. *see above* I also had a piece of toasted garlic bread.
snack: baby bel and grapes emoticon Since I already ate my cheese with my apple, I decided to have a plum instead of grapes. It was super tasty.

All in all a good food day BUT:
I'm over for calories.
I lost my "no snacks after 8" points.

Still contemplating whether or not I "stuck to it". It's worth 80 points in the challenge so I'm going to mull it over until morning.

Dena & Anne - I'm going to try your PB idea. I got super hungry on the way home today and the cheerios almost didn't do the trick.

Nancy - ciabatta is just a type of bun. It's triangular and herbed.

Beth - the plan went well.

Thanks everyone for the comments and ideas.

    Because of your "rainbow of colored veggies" mention in a previous blog, I had beets last night. Then tonight, I had carrots, snow peas, and a salad with many colors. I also had a yellow pear at lunch. All those colors!

    Love your blogs.

    I think you did great! I'd suggest getting more protien at breakfast though, maybe a HB egg or some peanut butter. I've never understood no snacking after a certain time, I believe if you are hungry you should eat.

    I have when fruits and veggies "commit suicide" unexpectedly. It can really throw a wrench into an otherwise totally good plan.

    Gee I think you did great.

    I DO find that if I eat oatmeal instead of a cold cereal I stay full longer.

    I make REAL oatmeal - not prepackaged and throw in a few raisins or drizzle some honey or a few frozen blueberries.

    Just an idea.
