1 down, 19 to go!

Yup, first week of dieting over and I'm down a measly pound. Considering my excesses on Thursday night and the "loose" way I managed the diet over the weekend (waffles, bacon, movie popcorn, and beers were on the menu), not too bad.

Speaking of diet, here are a few great, healthy treats that probably accounted for the downward scale movement: fajita on a whole wheat tortilla with lots of grilled chicken, sweet bell peppers, onions, and salsa; fish tacos w/ salad (I found an amazing mango tequilla jalapeno dressing that made it zing), grilled eggplant and portobellos with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and lots of fruit: mangos, Skagit Valley berries, etc. Whole grain cereals and light frozen dinners helped, too.

Biggest challenges and setbacks? As expected, beer and chips at home.

Okay, enough foodie/diet talk for now...
