Logging, Another Day

Enjoyed a nice snow day today with the kiddos and a few friends. I love snow!

Today's intake:

7am: 1 c coffee, 1.5 Tbsp sugar free creamer
8am: Medifast oatmeal, another cup of coffee w/sf creamer
10am: Medifast hot cocoa w/almond extract and instant decaf coffee
noon: Medifast chili puffs and 2 oz cheddar cheese with a diet soda
2pm: enjoyed some very nice coffee at a friend's house with a splash of cream and a Splenda
3:30pm: Medifast hot cocoa and 2 Tbsp PB2 (powdered peanut butter)
6pm (planned dinner): Rotisserie chicken breast, half a small spaghetti squash, and a wedge of Laughing Cow light cheese with a bit of chicken broth to make a creamy garlic sauce
8:30pm (planned): Medifast chocolate chip cookie and a cup of herbal tea

Stats:
1126 calories
112 g protein
92 g carbs
31% fat

So, this is an improvement from yesterday. I got everything in I needed to, plenty of protein. I am still over 1000 calories but I did get under 100 g carbs so that's better. I got too much fat for 2 reasons: 1) the cheese, which was not low fat, and 2) the cream, which I don't use at home but that's what they had for the coffee.

I have about 6 diet sodas left. I haven't bought any in a couple months, since I decided to stop drinking them. I phased them out a lot and am just using the ones I had left in the pantry occasionally, and then won't drink soda anymore as a general rule.

Your comment about soda made me think of my own struggle with it and that new book I've just read about neural pathways. (Brain over Binge)

When I quit drinking soda, it was really hard. At first, I wanted one often. As I read your post, I realized I haven't craved soda in years. Years! I have one on occasion, but that occasion is probably less than every six months and usually out of necessity r/t what is available.

Having that one, now and again, has never kicked up the urge to soda.

I guess we can be free. :)

Lyn,
Forever reader, rare commenter. I just realized that I never mentioned that I made the laughing cow zucchini Alfredo and loved it! Also made it for my more picky husband who ate a ton. Have already made it again, thanks! Also made (and wrote about) the cauliflower pizza and had several family members note that they made and loved it as well:)
