BREAKFAST (9:45 a.m.)
2 scrambled eggs, 2 slices of turkey bacon, 2 slices of wheat toast (one with Smart Balance light and the other with Polaner Allfruit)
LUNCH (2:15 p.m.)
.5 cup of Fage yogurt mixed with .5 cup of frozen blueberries. (It was good as is, but the next time I think I'll thaw out the blueberries first so that the juices can flow through the yogurt.)
SNACK (4:30 p.m.)
A handful of nuts
DINNER (7:00 p.m.)
Boneless chicken breast and cabbage (red and savory mix). AND, I went back for a second helping of cabbage! :-) This picture doesn't look so good because the color of red cabbage didn't photograph well; but it was good. I made toooo much; so you'll be seeing me include cabbage in a lot of meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) this week. LOL My hubby says he'll be eating some and I forced my son to include some with his dinner; so it won't be a total waste. LOL
WATER TOTALS: 4 cups
Note: I've decided to leave exercise and strength training in my tracker. I'm not going to include it in my food blogs. So, if you're interested in how I'm doing with the 10-minute daily exercise challenge and the 1 body part strength training challenge, check my shared tracker. I'm also streaking them, so you can see how I'm doing with that, as well as with my calcium supplements, at the bottom of my Sparkpage where streaks appear.

I initially stated that I wanted to track my food via pictures for the entire month of October. It was an experiment. I was getting obsessive about calorie counting and tracking and I didn't feel like it was helping me at all; so I wanted to try picture tracking out. But, the month ends today... so what have I decided?
I have decided to continue!
I think I'll continue through the end of the year.
I believe that food picture tracking is really helping me. It helps me to make better decisions and to be accountable for the decisions that I make. I'm also hearing that it's helping many of you all as well. I love that aspect. If I can inspire in any way, I'm happy about it. I've also made many new Spark friends that I wouldn't have known had they not come across my food blogs! That's pretty cool! And most importantly, I'm enjoying it! It's definitely easier and less time consuming than tracking and obsessing over calories (too few or too many). I'm eating the way I envision continuing to eat and I'm taking you along for the ride.
But, there is ONE aspect that I don't like and that's sharing when I'm fasting. It's really very personal, spiritually. But, if I don't share there will be a ton of questions about why I skipped this meal or that meal or why I ate this way or didn't eat that way, etc. So, I try to be upfront and hopefully it means not a lot of questions. But, they still come. LOL Oh well...
Overall food blogging has been a great experience... 10's across the board!
It'll be interesting to maneuver through picture taking over the Thanksgiving holiday with my extended family. Maybe the fact that I'll be taking pictures will get rid of some of the fear of Thanksgiving feasting for me. Maybe I won't be as inclined to be gluttonous.... maybe.
Christmas should be equally as interesting.
