Lunch- 2 slices turkey, 1 slice cheese and honey
            mustard on 2 slices whole wheat bread
            water (16.9 oz)

Snack- 1 cup grapes

Dinner- 5 oz roasted chicken breast
            1 cup roasted broccoli

            1 cup roasted yellow squash
            1/2 cup corn
             water (16.9 oz)

My eating was pretty good today and I really loved my dinner.  I could have honestly went without eating the chicken it was my least favorite thing on the plate.  I also bought an acorn squash and roasted it but it took longer than I thought it was going to so it wasn't ready to eat for dinner tonight.  I did taste alittle bite of it and it tasted alot like yellow squash.  I guess its paying off to try vegetables I've never eaten before because I'm adding new things to my list of healthy foods.

I"ve never done this before but I took a picture of my dinner tonight just so you could see how yummy it looked.

I might start doing this more often just to add some color to my food and exercise journal because its just kind of boring reading over what I ate and did today.

I've decided to take a break from my walking tonight but I will be back at it tomorrow.

Now for my goals that I set for the week:
1. Water- 51 oz.
2. Sugar- stayed within limits
3. Fruit- 2 servings today
4. Vegetables- lots for dinner
5. Carbs- stayed within limits
6. Exercise- day off
7. Soda- none
8. Fast food- none


  1. Dinner looks absolutely delicious. I'm actually with you- all of those veggie look almost good enough to pass up the chicken!!

  2. I love your dinner! Looks mmm mm yummy. I also noticed that you have soda listed on your goals as not having any. wisest choice ever. I drank diet soda under the assumption it was ok. I drank like a gallon or more a day. Once I stopped, my weight started just falling off. I did some research and apparently water is the way to go. It makes the kidneys and liver work together like they are supposed to and the fat stops being stored and starts being used up!
