Well I blew the diet or what could be called the non diet. I did not weigh.

Breakfast: Oatmeal and black coffee

Snack: Made a smoothie: 1 banana, 4 strawberries, bunch of blueberries, about a third of an apple and then I put in flaxseed, chia, psylum husks (3) capsules and 1 cup of water. I blended it all together and drank a small glass.

Lunch: Marconi and cheese with a bite or two or bread.

Dinner: 3 meatballs, shrimp, 3 small rolls, green salad and lots of wine. For desert 3 great coconut Kafka balls and a bunch of orange and spice slices.

Joanne and I drank the whole bottle of wine. We enjoyed the Super Bowl, I think!

February 1, 2011

Weight: 151

Breakfast: 2 strawberries, 1 banana, 1 whole grain mini bagel with pepper cheese, cup of coffee, should say Maxwell House.

To Senior Center to take beginners class in Line Dancing. Found that I did not like the music and had on the wrong shoes to execute the moves but did get a little exercise.

Stopped to get a hair trim at Head Start down here in the Valley.

Lunch: 1 slice of Nature’s Own Whole Grain bread with 1 slice of natural cheddar cheese with turkey hot dog; Green Giant snow peas (4) raw, 5 organic grape tomatoes. Special K bar with a few swallows of Maxwell House Coffee black.

The tomatoes were grown by Jerrold A. Watson & Sons in Monetta, SC.  I did not find them especially good. Perhaps they are supposed to have a tough outer skin.

The whole grain bagel by Pepperidge Farm had 100 calories per bagel. I personally do not like them as much as Thomas’ Brown Sugar Cinnamon mini bagels with 130 calories. I think I will go back to these and add the 30 calories. However, I have to consider with Thomas’ I am eating 1/2 gram more of fat and 0.5 grams of saturated fat as compared to none for Pepperidge Farm and the best part is probably the dietary fiber of Pepperidge Farm is 11% compared to 4% for Pepperidge Farms…gram wise that is 2 grams more.

Went to the RWH to hear Col. John Reitzel speak. He was excellent.

Dinner: Cut green beans, new potatoes, carrots with whole grain crackers. Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate made with water. Special K Bar.
