Day 3

This morning Grace was playing while I was getting breakfast ready and I heard the cd player come on. Her music started playing. I went in there and discovered that she took our cd out, put hers in, turned the radio on and pushed play. Pretty talented two year old.

Molly is getting really close to sitting up! She can sit up and lean forward on her hands, but she still needs help because she will topple backwards if she gets too excited! I can't believe how big she is getting!

Well today was just an okay day for the diet. I was really hungry all day today for some reason. I ended up eating 1,992 calories. I am okay with that. I like to be closer to 1,800, but I am okay to going up to 2,000. For breakfast I had Kashi Go Lean Honey Almond Flax with 1/2 glass of skim milk (245 calories). I have been occasionally having a little milk and Molly seems to tolerate it a little better. I had a banana and some turkey jerky for a midmorning snack (215 calories). For lunch I had Bob bring home Subway. I had a chicken teriyaki on wheat with lettuce, tomato, green peppers, and sweet onion sauce. No cheese! (380 calories) My afternoon snack was a clif mini bar, a yogurt, and a granola bar (310 calories). For dinner I had a ham and turkey sandwich with cheese on light bread and potato chips. When I got home from bowling I had a second dinner (I feel like a Hobbit) of two peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (672 calories for both dinners). I then had the ice cream I had been craving all day. A skinny cow caramel cone. Yummy! (170 calories) I ended up with 15% fat, 64% carbs, and 20% protein. Not enough protein. And I only had one serving of fruits and one of vegetables.

I do not like very many vegetables. I like green beans, peas, and corn.....not a good variety! If anyone has any good ways of getting vegetables in let me know! I am also looking for a healthy vegetable soup recipe! Thanks for keeping me accountable!
