Sunday's foods DD
 
Trying like heck for a true DD today as tomorrow is my weigh-day and after maintaining all month I want to see what my "true" weight is...the scales bounce so much.

coffee/black, had a hb egg at noonish, later grazed on a couple beef sticks (made a quick run to the base exchange and saw 'em, so bought 'em) DH really liked 'em so I used to keep them in the house, and a diet soda

S. lo veggie soup (gave the last of it to N for her crew but kept one cup for me) with a bit of chicken breast.

400 kcals, and will try to make it through the evening with no snacks.

Doris, wound up not having the Italian Ice last night, so it's still a treat for the future...and sure, I could take care of the house work with a little huffing and puffing, but she needs the money and I'm glad I can help.

Dh loved the crockpot chicken I put together this morning. He had his on a bread slice and I had mine without. It was really a nice change. :)
