This is Bananas! Florescent bananas!

I had lots of water today! I find its easy to drink a lot when I drink out of a straw... is that weird? I guess I have to trick my mind any way I can! Yesterday I had 2 glasses of Crystal Light in a row and got a headache, so today I stuck with plain water other than when I had lunch.

I had my usual banana and yogurt for breakfast for 3 pts. Later I was still hungry so I also had a cup of Cinnamon Cheerios (yum!) for 3 points.

For lunch, I had a Lean Cuisine Chicken Club sandwich and some pickles. (8 pts)
 Later on I had some chocolate pudding and 1/2 a banana for 2 pts. Soo good! (A little florescent, no? Next time no flash...)
I didn't know what to do for dinner, but I wanted to have a chicken breast, so I cut it up, and cooked it in a pan with some seasoned canned tomatoes, a broccoli steamer bag and 3/4 cup of sea shell pasta. I thought it would make a nice one person meal, but this is how it ended up... a lot!
The whole thing was 11 points, but I only had half. Good job, right?
And for dessert, I had another pudding with banana.

Speaking of bananas... for those of you doing Weight Watchers, isn't it funny how before they were 2 pts, so personally, I would never have any (there were way tastier things for 2 pts), but now that they're 0 pts, I have at least one a day!

I get 34 points a day and have a lot left over today.. probably because of my surprisingly low dinner points.

I am doing really well with eating healthy these days. My parents are out of town so I am alone, which makes it easy to make healthy foods and not be tempted by anything. It's funny because before, I would probably eat more if I was alone, especially more fast food, more unhealthy things, etc. But now that I'm on the right track, it's the opposite. It feels good. I'm kinda proud :)

That is great that you are doing the opposite! I know my worst times are when I am alone....

It's great how your dinner turned out - now you have lunch tomorrow!

The food looks so good. For some reason I want a pickle now. The powers of persuasion.

Wow, that is impressive that you are better when alone-I tend to reach for everything when there is no one else around! I think you did great with that dinner-you should start posting your recipes!
