Eats

Breakfast was overnight oats which lacked any fruit (because I didn’t have any), so I added chocolate chips (because that just makes sense).

Lunch was left over chopped up gyro toppings with 1/4 C feta cheese and a dressing made of 1 tsp of olive oil and 1 tsp of lemon juice.

I snacked on a microwaved sweet potato with ketchup and mustard in the afternoon.

Dan told me he would be home late for work and that I could snack for dinner.  I am embarrassed to report what I chose to eat, because it had almost no nutritional value.    I didn’t even take any pictures – it was that bad.  Throughout the night, I ate popcorn (6), pretzels and hummus (8), and angel food cake (5).

My Door to Door Organics delivery came yesterday though, so I should be stocked back up on fruits and veggies. 

Run

Courtney and I ran a nice and easy 3.5 miles before the sun came up. 

Thought for the day:

Points Breakdown:

Daily points (30) + Activity Points (7)- Eating points (38) = -1

Weekly Points (49) – Mon (0) – Tues (5) –Wed (1) = 43

5 servings of fruits and veggies

whole grains when possible

2 servings of dairy

2 tsps of oil

lean protein – a rare meat free day

limit sugar and alcohol

multivitamin

Water: 100 oz.
