1/2 cup Quacker's oatmeal made with water
1/2 small apple
1 packet of Splenda 
Cinnamon to taste 
Estimated calories: 202  

This was the first time I remember making oatmeal with water instead of milk and personally it wasn't my favorite. Oatmeal made with milk has much more flavor too me, plus it is sweeter. Using water to save calories is a good idea, but I won't use the method as often. 

"LUNCH" (More like dinner)

2 slices Sara Lee whole wheat bread
1 Southwest Morning Star veggie burger
4 jalapeno slices
Lettuce, onion, and tomato
1.5 Tbsp. Kraft fat-free caesar italian dressing
Estimated calories: 288

I haven't had the south west veggie burger until today and I must say that I love it even more than the garden burger! It has a nice taco-like flavor to it. The back of the box suggests adding it to a salad to make a taco salad, which I will have to try. After making the burger I realized that I didn't need to ass anything to it because it already tastes fantastic.

Originally I was hoping to make a banana smoothie, but the banana's still aren't ripe enough. In a day or two they should be ripened to my liking.

I ate this snack a little close to my "lunch", but I was pretty hungry after work and didn't want to wait.

1 celery stalk cut in pieces
2/3 Tbsp. Philidelphia fat-free cream cheese

I bought a jump rope today in hopes of cardio exercise, but I failed at choosing a good jump rope. I bought the cheapest one I could find without thinking that it looked to light. I got a little bit of a work out with it, but over-all it was too frustrating. I will most likely purchase a beaded rope the next time I'm out.   


This is shocking to me considering I'm so full!
