Tuesday's foods UD
Had the buffet at the casino for brunch and couldn't believe how uncomfortable I was (and still am). When I put it into my food journal I was truly surprised that it was almost a thousand caloris...whew! Amazing the food we can put away and I'm trying for portion control. Of course, I did have a small piece of cheesecake as today is National Cheesecake Day...go figure. But I was so full, I couldn't eat it all.

B. coffee/hood's or milk, scrambled eggs, 2 bacon & 1 small sausage patty, biscuit, honeydew, cantaloupe, pineapple, banana, plain cheesecake

Not snacking much these days, but have green grapes and grape tomatoes at home. I drink more iced tea and iced coffee than ever in my whole life, even when we lived in the San Joaquin valley near Fresno, where it's also very hot, never drank so much.............what a major change for dh and I. People here walk everywhere with a drink in their hand it seems.

Thursday's food UD
Great day!! Lunch with the crew and for the first time all the supervisors were there...they left the place in charge of a young petty officer so the civilians were able to come. It was great seeing everyone and enjoyed all the office gossip. Then it was to the movie to watch RED2, also very good. I don't normally go to see sequels but this one is worth it...lots of slam-bang and I loved Helen Mirrin, but then who doesn't? Stop at the marketo for a few veggies and my raw peanuts, so I'm good to go.

coffee/hood's, and a half banana before leaving the house

L. small bowl tortilla soup (couldn't eat the whole thing), shredded beef taco, half the chicken enchilada and a couple bites of rice and I'm still full six hours later...had an Arnold Palmer to drink.

S. planning on that chef's salad I thought about last night...lettuce, tomato, lof ham, turkey, red pepper, 1000 island dressing...haven't made up my mind on what to drink.

about 1200 kcals by the time I go to bed...will definitely have some of that watermelon later
