The Huz and I have decided to start seriously tracking our spending and expenses lately so, in an effort to make the most of what we already have, I created a delicious throwback lunch yesterday:
1 large carrot, cut into spears and a PB and Forest Berry Preserves sandwich on Ezekiel Bread (450 cal). Yum! Yum! Yum!
This reminded me so much of the lunches my mom used to make for me when I was in grade school. All I was missing was a note on my napkin…but wait! Look what I found!
What did you used to eat for lunch in grade school?
As a snack, I enjoyed a juicy apple (125 cal), courtesy of my Firm:
After my walk home from work, I was s-t-a-r-v-i-n-g and I wanted to take Bodhi for a short run so I had half of the delicious Glo Bar (100 cal) I received in the Healthy Living Summit swag bag.
We headed up the promenade and back, no music and minimal watch checking. All in all, a good standard run. For dinner, we headed to the Huz parents’ apartment for tasty indian food! No pictures, but I enjoyed 1/2 a samosa, 2 spoonfuls each of two different chicken curries over a small serving of basmati rice and a small hunk of french bread (800+ cal).
I had about 2/3 cup of Sharon’s sorbet – a small scoop each of coconut and dutch chocolate (210 cal). These flavors are divine!!

= NET of 1345 calories. FYI, if I want to maintain my current weight, this number should be ~1600. To lose gradually, I would probably keep this number in the 1200-1400 range, making room for inaccuracies in counting since I’m not measuring everything and I’m not giving up restaurant/family meals!
