First of all, I am not happy with Blogger right now! It was shut down for a while and it has removed my last post... supposedly it will be back soon. So if it looks to you as if I skipped a day of sharing my journal, I did not. Blogger is just being weird!

Healthy Oils- CHECK!
Lean Protein- CHECK!
Whole Grains- CHECK!
Vitamins- NOPE... (note: I need to buy more vitamins! Not because I'm out, but because I really want one that is targeted for vegans, with extra B12, iron, calcium, etc.)
Hmmmm, that's an awful lot of evening snacking. It makes me wonder whether or not I was actually hungry for all of that, or if I was eating just because I could and because it was there. Even though I made mostly healthy decisions (everything was Power Foods, with the exception of the peanut butter), I think that I overate a bit.
Today I will try to watch my evening hunger a little closer. I have plans all evening long, so it should be easier to avoid any boredom eating!
Breakfast: oatmeal with banana and soy milk
Lunch: cous-cous with black beans, tomatoes, and EVOO
Dinner: 2 boca burgers with 2 big hamburger buns at BBQ fest (I am forced to bring my own "meat" so that I will not starve while Stacey pigs out on pig)
Snacks: leftovers from lunch, veggies and fruits
Exercise: The Firm Wave DVD
Tomorrow is my weigh-in! I feel pretty good about it. I have done very well this week!!! I actually will have 20+ activity points left if I stick to my plan for today. The last several weeks I've been in the red. So here's the test to see if my body likes less food or more food! :-)
