Milky coffee: 30 calories
I’ve bought some low cal yogurts for a morning snack although I was devastated to find out that the grocery store no longer offers the Nestle ones I had before. They had bits in which made it seem more substantial. I looked at low-fat plain yogurt + fruit + granola but it ended up being quite a bit higher in calories than the yogurts I used to buy. So I settled for Danone low fat fruit yogurt at 52 calories a tub.
This morning I wasn’t hungry so it was a non-issue. Cliff said he doesn’t want breakfast regardless (we don’t normally have it) so that’ll make calorie counts a bit tricky. Although if he had 52 calories less than me every day, it wouldn’t be the end of the world. :)

I was really happy with lunch, it was a good variety, nice flavours and didn’t seem like a “diet” meal at all. I was a little bit disappointed in the couscous though. Now that I’m thinking about it, I usually add a dab of butter at the end and I wonder if that’s why I felt this couscous wasn’t as nice as I thought it would be. I wonder if a touch of salt would help.

This was based on the Algerian soup recipe but it was kind of boring. I might try it again with green chiles.
I was very pleased to have my diet coke in the evening but really I was counting down until it was late enough to have my hot chocolate which I had designated as a treat for being good all day. It was very nice.
Then I decided I would have a second one as I was still under 1,200 and I wasn’t ready for bed. It wasn’t as nice. I probably shouldn’t have bothered.
I stayed up very late. I considered a third drink but suspected that it would taste even not nicer. Maybe I should make a pot of green tea for the evenings and drink that before I have an options.
I’m not sure what I’ll do once the weather warms up but a hot drink before bed is quite nice.
