I thought I would start this diet life-style change off with what I ate in a photo spread. I'm a teacher, so my summers are wonderfully free for me. I spend the first part of every June no knowing what to do with myself and then I figure it out by July. Monday I tackled cleaning my closet, dresser and night stand. I took a car load of stuff to Goodwill. It's my summer ritual. I think tomorrow I may tackle the study closet or Parker's room.

I always have the same thing for breakfast. If I get bored with it I'll switch. When I'm working I'll gobble down yogurt and sip on coffee all morning. I may or may not have time for my energy bar. In the summer however I get both in.
 Total Points - 9
(Yogurt=3 and energy bar=5 Coffee=1)
I'm sure I can find lower point substitutions for these. But these keep me filled up and I hate to let my blood sugar drop.

Lunch varies during the summer. Today I had a sandwich and carrots and water. :)
Total of 5 points. Later on I ate the strawberries and blueberries. I think it is 2 points.

Tonight dinner is a baby spinach/romaine lettuce salad. I added in
tomatoes: 0
sweet chili chicken breast: 4
olive oil italian dressing:5
croutons: 1
egg whites (2): 0

I'm allowed 29 points and so far I've used 27. I'll have some ice-cream later  after I walk.
Wish everyday was this easy. :) I also have about 24 ounces of water to drink which I'm sure I will after the walk! UGH humidity!! 

I didn't walk. It was raining.
