she saw the world through the eyes of a child

So this is my New Year's Eve. Easter Challenge starting weight...

Breakfast! Banana Nut Crunch and 2% milk. I know I could do better calories and fat wise with 1%, but while waiting for my most recent haircut, I read an article in Newsweek about how full-fat dairy helped with fertility issues. So I'm at 2% milk and full-fat cheese. Nathan is happy, and I'm making caloric room.
Lunch: Vegetable soup (some meat, of course) and 4 saltines. There's also a little triangle of chocolate. I ate this one, and another one.
Snack #1: Half an apple and a tablespoon of peanut butter.
Dinner ROCKED. Seared Chicken Salad with Almonds and Dried Cranberries and Sangria. I used spinach instead of arugula - Meijer was really picked over. But the salad was really good and our tummies are happy.
After gym snack: one orange.
After gym, you ask? Yes, after gym. Nate and I went over to the clubhouse, and 2 treadmills were fixed! So I spent 30 minutes on the treadmill, 30 minutes on the bike, and 15 on the weights. Yes, we are awesome.
Happy New Year!!
