food/points diary

I am using this post to keep a food journal to help me keep track of my points both positive and negative. I will edit and add to it each day or two. Keeping a record of what you eat helps you see where you are making good or bad choices and the act of having to fess up to your slip ups may be enough to keep you from finishing off a whole can of Pringles or a bag of chocolate kisses. Not that I would know anything about either of those activities ----just hypothetical examples. Ü

Wednesday food points: -1
tea
toasted croissant with honey
grapefruit
almonds
homemade soup loaded with vegetables
grilled turkey and cheese sandwich
water
tacos with lean meat and fresh tomato & lettuce -- no salsa
another snack of almonds (+9 good foods -10 white bread and croissant)

Thursday points +11
toasted bread (not white) with olive oil and tomato/garlic
tea w/ no sugar
homemade chili
cornbread (no flour no sugar recipe)
water
apple slices
seedless grapes
broccoli
baked chicken
almonds
banana (+11 good foods)

Friday points -9
whole grain bagel
low fat cream cheese
water
banana
almonds
low fat pretzel bites

Saturday food Points +9

positive choices -- chose whole wheat bread over the hotdog buns, no sugar in the tea even though it was bitter without it, resisted the Pringles at supper even though they are my favorite, did not eat the cookies everyone else had for dessert, no butter on the bagel this morning,

Whole grain bagel
light cream cheese
orange juice
boneless chicken breast
carrots
brown rice
salad
peanuts (-5)
integral "cookies"

Monday -- 0 pts
I started off the day well but the pb&j sandwich at supper was just begging for chips so I lost 10 pts right there!
bran flakes cereal
raisins
juice
scrambled eggs
tea w/ no sugar
lean meatballs (not fried)
left over brown rice
salad
sunflower seed snacks
raisins
Whole grain bread
peanut butter and jelly (-5)

Great way to keep track for sure. Are you noticing a difference. I increased my workout and ate very little carbs today. I am looking forward to seeing a change.
