    My weight is back up at 211.2

    I have been craving salt lately. I will see if that is the only problem by avoiding it for a few days.

    Oatmeal and blackberries
    apple
    walnuts
    homemade chicken barley and corn soup
    10 grams of Snickers bar (1/5 of a small bar)

    My rainbow so far is:
    purple, red, orange, yellow and green

    I'll have some blueberries later.

    Okay, so today's rainbow is pretty good. But also, some of the food i[a> am eating isn't...


    Breakfast- Green, Orange and Yellow.
    I had a smoothie with Mango, Banana, Kiwi, Pineapple
    BUT, i[a> also had a chicken burrito.


    Lunch- Green, Purple, Blue and Red
    I had a salad with Roman Lettuce, Raspberries[a> , Blue Berries, Black Berries, Strawberries with a Berry Vinegar[a> Dressing[a> .
    BUT I also had a Lobster Bisque[a> and a slice of French[a> bread.


    I have not had dinner yet. And on top of all of that, i[a> have had 2 small bags of chips. Oh, and a red bull.....


    I think i[a> might be trying to comfort myself with food, and i[a> really need to stop. I have gain 4 pound back of the 5 i[a> lost from the challenge. It is a bit upsetting.


    But, i[a> will get through this, i[a> always do

    Green - 3/4 c broccoli

    Blue - handful of blueberries

    It's really good that Judy has us thinking about this. I wasn't so mindful before. I was counting calories, not colors.
