I did okay today...didn't really follow the "eating programme" (I'm not too keen on calling it a "diet" because the word alone represents deprivation) mostly because I realized I do have to go out and buy some things.

However, I was pretty good:

Breakfast - Omelet made with 1/2 cup Egg Beaters (equivalent to two eggs), Canadian bacon, onions, low-fat shredded cheddar cheese and Tabasco sauce, cooked in Pam; leftover coffee from yesterday's trip to Dunkin Donuts

Lunch - About a dozen grapes

Dinner - Lean Cuisine Sesame Chicken entree; 8 oz. glass of milk

Snack (at the Mechanics game) - Soft pretzel; cappuccino

Snack (at home) - About 12 baked Cool Ranch Doritos

I also drank two cups of tea (made with Splenda and fat-free coffee cream) and probably three 12 oz. glasses of water.

The reason I only had grapes for lunch is that I had to eat dinner early (like 3:30) because I was going to the Mechanics game, which started at 5 PM, the time I would normally be eating dinner. It is also the reason I had two evening snacks.

I'm not too sore today from yesterday's workout, but I know that generally it hits the second day so I'm expecting to feel it tomorrow. But I'm still going to work out. Also, my back is fine today...nothing more than my usual annoying low-grade soreness.

I'm feeling a bit peckish now, but it's late so I might have a few grapes before I go to bed, but nothing else.

I was wondering about the small lunch..but I also remembered that you sleep in , so your breakfast is usually a 'brunch', ect.
I am glad that your back is doing fine so far...just stretch alot before you work out today and you should be fine. Was your tape 60 minutes? I know that, after some time, your back will get better and better.
