    Well my car temperature gauge still displays triple digits; but I am mentally thinking Autumn thoughts. Tracking was better this week; yea! This week I plan to continue my focus on tracking and taking accountability for the quality of my choices.

    Join me in posting whatever you want accountability on for the week. Ideas are: -Food journals -Water intake -Exercise -Freggie intake/Rainbow -Calories/points/carbs/fat grams/protein grams -Challenge goals

    I've been sick with this stupid cold that won't go away, so I haven't been keeping track of what I ate. I know I had Chinese food on Sunday and too many Pop Chips and too many chocolate rice cakes but other than that I don't remember Sunday.


    Breakfast: 2 slices of wheat toast w/LF margarine and 1/2 glass FF milk

    Lunch: Low sodium tomato soup, carrots, 2 slices of bread and LF cheddar cheese

    Dinner: Was cooking and eating. Not sure what all I ate. A little lasagna, some rice w/LF margarine and Parmesan cheese and a couple of spoonfuls of LF potato soup.

    Snacks: Yogurt, 2 SF puddings

    Exercise: None
    Rgulen replied to Rgulen's response:

    Breakfast: rolled oats cooked in almond milk, banana, walnuts, ground flax, local honey, breakfast spices.

    Lunch: turkey chili from "my fit foods". My new rule is that if I need go traipse out due to cravings; I am only allowed to go this healthy spot.

    Dinner: I basically ended up on snacking on trail mix before and after exercise class.

    I went to Jazzercise class.

    Thanks, Rg! I really am my own worst enemy when I am sick because I just act like I'm not sick and carry on as usual. I've got issues. LOL

    Hi Rg!
    Work has been crazy and to be honest, I'm pretty tired of the moment that I wake up the computer is on and then it is on until I go to bed most of the time but yet I am still behind. Hoping to get caught up once and for all over the weekend and actually getting to do something fun which that hasn't happened since before my surgery. Anyhow, enough whining.

    Thursday Rainbow: Purple, green, orange, yellow, white, red
    (rainbow chard, oj, banana, apple, onion, garlic, potato, celery, carrots)
    Water: 72oz
    Vitamins: check
