Oh Bacon!

I meant to eat breakfast - really I did, there was even cooked bacon left from the weekend.  But I got a late start as I hit the snooze button twice and though making it to work on time, I forgot to grab my lunch from yesterday, which I'd taken home when it wasn't finished.   

By lunch I was starved but I was determined not to repeat yesterday's high calorie sandwich so  I went home for lunch and had some defrosted pasta with homemade, low fat meat sauce..  To give you an idea of the modest portion -  that is a 9 inch square salad plate. .  With some carrots to munch on the drive back to work, I felt pretty good.

Afternoon snack was a baggie of some leftover popcorn popped with only a tiny bit of olive oil and a pinch or two of sugar for a hint of "kettel korn" taste. . .
and an apple.

I had errands to run after work so an Alpsnack kept me going until I got home. 
Dinner was a cup of Thai Coconut soup with a handful of finely chopped leftover steamed veggies thrown in,  a slice of Dave's Killer Bread, and four ounces of red wine.
Totals:  Breakfast:  0 (not good)  Lunch (about 1 1/4 cup pasta with sauce) with carrot sticks  about 475.  Snacks  340  Dinner 325  Before bed, I'll have a  non fat Greek yogurt with a dab of honey and herb tea  150.    Totals for the day  About 1350.   Yay!   Back on track and when I got on the scale this morning, I was down 1 and 3/4 pounds from 4 days ago.

Steps (I had a lot of sitting today)  3790.  Swimming in pool at crash pad before the pool closed.  20 minutes.

Tomorrow is lunch out with colleagues.  It will likely be Mexican.  Pray for me  :)

    ....just avoid the refried beans... and maybe the guacamole... but really, you should be okay down Meh-cchi-ko way....

  2. Skip the chips n salsa that they always ply you with at the start in most Mexican restaurants. Fajitas should be relatively low cal and healthy, especially if it's chicken fajitas. Have fun!


Thanks for visiting. Having been fortunate enough not to have to diet as a young woman - hitting middle age to find my Metabolism moved to Aruba and didn't even send a postcard was a rude awakening.
