Woohoo carrots!

209.2 (this morning)
210.0 ("official" weigh-in yesterday at noon)

I went to my Weight Watchers meeting yesterday as planned and have started the "Core" plan today. Core is actually pretty similar to Phase 2 of the South Beach Diet, with one notable exception: whole wheat bread is not allowed. I've been hungry on and off today, but not unbearably so.

MM and I are having dinner at Red Robin after the gym. I thought that it might be a bit of a challenge finding a Core-compliant meal there, so I designed one online and am going to use some of my weekly 35-point allowance to have a (whole wheat) bun.

I'm going to post my food for the day to help keep me honest. So far today I've had:

breakfast: Kashi Go Lean Crunch cereal with 15 blueberries and fat-free milk
lunch: mixed spring greens with 6 oz white albacore tuna, 6 oz V8, a banana, and a Yoplait Light fat-free yogurt
snack: 94% fat-free microwave popcorn and a peach

Only a little over 700 calories so far, according to sparkpeople.com. My planned meal at Red Robin is also only a little over 700 calories. . . so if I stick with my plan, I should come in at around 1450 total calories for the day.

MM and I are going to the gym tonight--as per our usual Tuesday routine--and on to his place to gather up the last of his things that are still there. Between gym, dinner, and clean-up, my entire evening is basically shot. And I have plans for dinner with friends the next two nights and am leaving town on Friday noonish to visit my dad for the weekend. Busy, busy!

Can you not stomach a burger without bread? I guess it's definitely an acquired taste, but one that I have grown to like. Red Robin in particular is good-they bring you a burger wrapped in lettuce. You can also get a salad a la SB without tortilla strips and carrots. I always get this but with a veggie burger and it's awesome!
