Belly Aches

I've had some really bad stomach aches the last few days. I'm not sure what is going on. I'm eating what I believe to be healthy - lots of fruits and veggies, and cutting back on simple carbs. Today I feel a lot better so I'm hoping that my bellyaches are just be my body's temporary reaction to this recent heat wave.

Yesterday's food diary. I ate 1,070 calories.
Yesterday I ate 1070 calories, which is 300 calories below my target calorie range. I just wasn't feeling up to eating. Today, I'm back on track. Also, my current weight as of this morning is 169.6 lbs (8.4 lb loss to date). I know I know, I count every tenth of a pound.

I just made the most amazing dessert

Sugar-free,.....vegan,...., flour-free fruit cobbler. It's so amazingly delicious and of course I didn't add any sugar to it. I used oatmeal instead of flour.

I will have a post later on about this with details on the ingredients I used, how I made it, and the nutritional content.

3 Favorite On-The-Go Snacks

Nuts and Chocolate

In my frigerator I have small tupperware containers filled with nuts and chocolate portioned out for the week so I can grab it on the way out to school every morning. I measure out 1 oz of nuts, usually walnuts, and one square of dark (≥90%) chocolate. This snack comes out to 245 calories, which may seem high, but it's extremely filling.
