Menu Disection Day 1: Tuesday

Breakfast:



What I planned:


B: Light and Fit Vanilla Yogurt (2) + Bear Naked Fit Granola (2) + Coffee with 1/2 cup 8th Continent Light Vanilla soy milk (.5) 4.5 [ 2 dairy ]


What I ate:


coffee (0) + 1/2 cup 8th continent light vanilla soy (.5) = .5


cultural revolution organic nonfat plain yogurt (1) + 1/4 c bear naked fit granola (2) = 3


Right on track with a WHOLE point shaved off by discovering I did still have a whole serving of my favorite low point yogurt left in the fridge! Viva la Cultural Revolution!


Snack:


What I planned:

S: Banana (2) 2 [ 2 fruit ]



What I ate:

32 oz water (0) + banana (2) = 2
I was in my lovely work vehicle, which is a Dodge Minivan. Fancy.
Lunch:
What I planned:
L: Turkey Sandwich on Arnold Sandwich Thin (3) + 1/4 avocado (2) + spinach (0) + spicy horseradish mustard (0) with baby carrots (0) and 2 tablespoons roasted red pepper hummus (1) 6 [ whole grains, 2 veggie ]



What I ate:

Turkey Sandwich on Arnold Sandwich Thin (3) + 1/4 avocado (2) + tomato (0) + spicy horseradish mustard (0) with baby carrots (0) and 2 tablespoons roasted red pepper hummus (1) = 6
*Impromptu Snack Alert*
I generally don't eat between lunch and dinner. I also kind of hate working out on a stomach that has stuff in it, but around 4pm today I started to feel a little hunger. I drank some water and waited it out, but my body wanted something solid. Wanting to go light and low point, I opted for some cantaloupe.

3 slices cantaloupe (1) = 1

Dinner:

What I planned:

D: Chicken Marengo (5) + Spinach Salad with Newman's Own Light Spritzer + 1 teaspoon olive oil (1) 6 [ 2 veggie, lean protein, 2 oil ]

What I ate:

Chicken Marengo (5) + Spinach (0) + Sweet Potato (2) = 7

Total Points Used (so far) = 19.5

The jury is still out as to whether I will have dessert or not. I planned to have 1/2 a grapefruit; broiled with honey and brown sugar. For some reason, as delicious as that sounds - it's not at all appealing to me right now. I'm not sure why.

I still have 2.5 points left for the day, and earned 9 APs today for riding to Power Pole Fitness class, working hard and riding back.

I'm proud of myself for sticking to my menu today.

Wednesday's Meal Plan

B: 1 cup Puffins (1) + 1/2 cup 8th Continent Light Vanilla Soy (.5) + banana (2) + coffee (0) + 1/2 cup soy (.5) = 4 [1 dairy, 2 fruit, whole grains]

S: Skim Latte (3) = 3 [2 dairy]

L: Chicken Breast Sandwich (3) on Arnold Sandwich Thin (1) + Tomato + Spinach + Spicy Mayo (1) with Side Salad dressed with 1 tsp olive oil (1) Newman's Own spritzer (0) = 5 [2 veggie, 1 oil, lean protein]

D: Chicken Asparagus Risotto (6) = 6 [1 veggie, 1 oil, lean protein]

S: Nature's Own Coconut Fruit Bar (2) = 2 [technically, this is a fruit!]

Total Points Planned = 20

mmmm I just ate lunch and your menu is making me hungry because of its deliciousness! Everything looks so healthy, balanced, and appetizing! Sometimes I really love to plan because it justifies spending so much time thinking about food.
