Yeah! I stuck to my meal plan yesterday, grocery shopped, exercised, cooked dinner and drank lots of water. Results: I lost 3.6 pounds. Just goes to show how much water weight I carry around when eating salty, junky stuff. 1 dinner down, 4 more to go, and then it's the 3-day weekend. I've allowed for some splurges in my weekly planning, but usually whatever I lose during the week, I put right back on over the weekend if I go too crazy. So I need to figure out how to allow myself to have some freedom with food & drinks, but not let it ruin all the hard work of the week. We're probably having friends over to swim & bbq, so it will be a challenge.

Meal Plan for today:
Breakfast: 3 egg whites scrambled with 1/2 cup broccoli and 1 Tbs. reduced-fat cheese
Morning Snack: 1 cup blackberries and 1/2 cup lowfat cottage cheese
Lunch: Braised Chicken with Creamy Wine Sauce
1 cup steamed broccoli
Afternoon Snack: South Beach High Protein Cereal Bar - Peanut Butter
1 apple
Dinner: 4 oz. salmon marinated in a marinade
Miso Noodle Soup
1 cup fat-free Lactaid milk
Evening Snack: WW English Toffee Crunch bar
Total Calories: 1345

Goals today: weight training and spinning, follow meal plan, track what I eat, get tons of water...

Accomplished:did all of the above!

1 day down, 3.6 pounds down, 32.8 to go!
