9:52 a.m. – Went to make tea to ward off hunger. Cursed! Garden Tomato and Basil Chips in the breakroom! Had 1 point (literally 5 tiny, wispy chips. Wasted 1 point.)
9:55 a.m. – Got tea and went to condiments. Cursed. Forgot had to use Splenda (0 points) instead of sugar (1-2 points)!
11:25 a.m. – Went to Subway with friend for belated birthday lunch. Had 6 inch Turkey and Ham sandwich with all the veggies I could talk them into giving me (veggies are 0 points!) and water. No chips, sadly. Though I did “spring” for cheese. Not even close to being full. Drink gallon of water to trick self into feeling full. Total lunch points 7.
12:30 p.m. – Drinking water trick didn’t work. Chew gum. Gum success!
2:25 p.m. – Damn. Somebody brought cake.
2:26 p.m. – Cake was figment of imagination. Must be hunger mirage.
3:40 p.m. – Had two crackers (1 point, rounding down)
4:30 p.m. – Picked up son. WalMart trip. Want to buy/rip open/devour everything in sight. Bad to shop when hungry (which is always). Try to stick to list. Only get 2,147 things not on list.

Add spinach and mushrooms to salad and use salsa instead of dressing for 0 points.

Will save soup for late night snack. Total supper points: 7
7:00 p.m. – Googled Pizookie dessert I ate (and shared last night, thank God) 1087 calories… unimaginable points (somewhere around 22!)
