How did you do today? Not bad today, for me. A little stress in my life, but I drank water instead of choosing candy. Have you weighed yourself recently? I stepped on the scale and my weight was actually down a couple of pounds.

It is too early for that to mean anything at this time. It could be just water loss or something. I am not afraid to step on the scale. Good or bad it is only like a scoreboard. What is the score now? Are we winning or losing? Just because we are losing now, doesn't mean we can't come back and win. You have to take the steps to win and you have to get out on the playing field to win.
For breakfast I had two packages of Instant Grits, an 8 ounce glass of orange juice, one scrambled egg, 1 tablespoon of butter and 6 ounces of 2% milk.

For lunch today I had a homemade roast beef sandwich on two slices of white bread. I added a tablespoon of mayonaise (Miracle Whip). I heated up two servings of green beans and drank water. Ran some errands today, so I didn't have a chance to do any walking. That was okay as sometimes you need time to rest. The body can't exercise everyday, or at least not the same exercise. You need to do different things and some days take completely off and not do any exercise and not feel guilty about it.

For dinner I had 2 grilled cheese sandwiches, could have eaten only one. Then one serving of potato chips and a couple of pieces of candy. Then I drank water. Not bad overall. I figure if I have less than 1000 calories or so at supper I am doing okay.

This was an okay day, I could have done better, but I am satisfied. I hope you did well. Good luck tomorrow. The next edition will be Sunday night.
