B'fast & Lunch

Thursday, October 09, 2003
I'm a bit behind b/c I didn't get on the computer last night to post my dinner.

But...for breakfast today I had my usual bowl of cereal and milk - 150 Calories; 1.5 Carbs

And for lunch today I had leftovers - 590 Calories, 19 Carbs.

I didn't do a great job of cooking a low calorie/carb dinner last night, which flowed over into my lunch today so I am going to have to have a light dinner. Yesterday was the opposite - light lunch and bigger dinner. I guess in the end if I can keep my calories and carb within the limits that I set per day then I should be alright.

I am doing better on my water intake today, though. A while back the glass I keep in my office broke so yesterday I finally bought a new one. It measures about 16 ounces when full, so if I can refill it and empty it just four times during the day I will have met the required 8 glasses of water every day.

You know, it doesn't seem that hard. 8 ounces (1 glass) isn't that much water. And if you work an eight hour day that should just be one per hour. Every hour get up and get a glass of water. It's the size of the little styrofoam cups they have in the kitchen for coffee! So, what's the big deal. Why is it so hard to get in the 8 glasses!?!?! It's beyond me!

The water dispenser that I have in my office is going to have to go, though. It holds 8 glasses, which is a great help to remind me, but even after cleaning it 100 times with many different cleaners, it still leaves the water with a terrible after taste. I don't know if it is the plastic or what, but it is awful. So, now I am just going to keep up with how many times I have filled up my glass!

I'm going to search for a recipe for a light dinner for tonight. When I find out what I am going to cook I'll post the recipe!
