Secondly, I wanted to really see what I was eating...not just on paper (or computer log) like I do with Weight Watchers now. I wanted to see my portion sizes and really get a feel for my week in food.
So here goes.
I started Sunday with a pancake that was leftover from Saturday. I put 1 Tbsp of reduced fat peanut butter and 1 Tbsp of low calorie maple syrup on top. Like every morning I had coffee with 2 Tbsp almond milk and 1 packet of Splenda. Thanks to the small amount of protein from the peanut butter this held me over until lunch time without much hunger. I also took the Lord's Supper but, as I'm sure you can understand, I didn't capture a picture of that.
For lunch, we stopped at Panera Bread. I ordered the Thai Chopped Chicken Salad, which I've had before, thinking it was healthy. Now, while it was healthy and had great flavor, it was higher in points than I thought. It was 10 points and I had half the whole grain baguette so that added another 4 points. 14 points just for lunch. My total count for the day will make sense taking this into account. PS--I drink water with most every meal throughout the day as I've stopped drinking soda.
