Today I'm trying a revised approach to acquiring my points in a day's time. If I am to get 40 points in a day, and if I was to quit eating after dinner, and if I am to spread the points over 5 times in a day, that works out to 8 points at breakfast, 8 points for a snack, 8 points for lunch, 8 points for another snack and 8 points for dinner. We'll see how that goes.

Breakfast: (9:00 am)
2 pieces of egg casserole
1 banana
1 granola bar

walk 2 miles

Snack: (11:00am)
1 granola bar
28 almonds

Lunch: (12:00pm)
Chicken Enchilada Suiza
5 crackers

jogged 1 1/2 mile
walked 1/2 mile

Snack: (2:00pm)
28 almonds
1 granola bar

Dinner: (6:00pm)
1/2 cup spaghetti sauce
1 cup of spaghetti
1 piece of chocolate

I spent 20 minutes eating dinner. Practicing slowing down.

Spent alot of time today watching the 3rd season of LOST, as you can tell by the Twitters. We are trying to get caught up on the show so this season will make more sense.

The wife isn't feeling well, so we pretty much did very little today.

As I was jogging today, I listened to my favorite podcast, THE RESTAURANT GUYS, and found out about a book by Michael Pollan called IN DEFENSE OF FOOD. It has 12 rules for the omnivore
1. Don't eat anything your grandmother wouldn't recognize as food
2. Avoid foods with ingredients you can't pronounce.
3. Don't eat anything that won't eventually rot.
4. Avoid food products that carry health claims.
5. Shop the peripheries of the grocery store.
6. Buy food somewhere other than the grocery store.
7. Pay more, eat less.
8. Eat a wide diversity of species.
9. Eat food from animals that eat grass.
10. cook if you can and grow some of your own food.
11. Eat meals and only at tables.
12. Eat deliberately, with other people when possible and always with pleasure.
