For dinner last night we had Albondigas Soup… is traditional Mexican fare, by you and I it would be considered Meatball soup… translates to 7 points. I also gnoshed on olives that I will count as three points. Putting me in a good spot for the day. (I didn’t eat my banana or orange, so I have to re tabulate my totals.)


Breakfast:Oatmeal 2 points
Orange 1 point

Snack:Peas 2 points

Lunch:Turkey Soup 4 points
Small Apple 1 Point

Snack:Broccoli 0 points

In an effort to jumpstart motivation in 2008, I am going to include in my blog a daily post of my eating healthy efforts. Today, I have packed my breakfast, lunch and snacks for the day….just like I do for Gia.

1/2c Slow Cooked Oatmeal 2 points
1 Small Orange 1 point

Snack:1 Banana 2 points

Lunch:Lemon Chicken Soup 3.5 points
Green Peas 2 points

Orange 1 point

Used 11.5 points. 9.5 points remaining. I will blog about dinner tomorrow morning as well as any “activity points” that I earned from the night before.

I really don’t want to “lose” as much as make healthy choices all around. Being an example for Gia is my number one priority.

Happy New Year to all!
