Snack: Sourdough bread with butter.

Ugh.  I’m not even going to try to remember everything I had over the weekend.  Let’s just say there was some good–roasted veggies, salads, exercise–and some bad–fries, pizza, cookies–and leave it at that.

Breakfast: Apple, peanut butter, milk, some lunchmeat as I was making my lunch.

Lunch: Sandwich (whole wheat sandwich thins, ham, turkey, pepperjack cheese, lettuce, bell pepper, onion, mustard), grape tomatoes.

Snack: Bought some hot chocolate from the vending machine, because my lab was FREEZING today.  It was insane.  Then when I got home I had some broccoli and artichoke and garlic hummus before I worked out.

Dinner: Half a grilled chicken breast marinated in barbecue sauce plus a few bites of another marinated in a sun-dried tomato marinade (made extra to put on salads later in the week), tomato bisque soup topped with parmesan, sourdough bread with butter, a few bites of my spinach and feta bread.

Dessert: Chocolate toffee cookie with milk.

Exercise: Health Habits workout, Week 20, Day 1.  I suck at squats, so bad.
