  1. That is a great start - your breakfast looks so good [and incredibly similar to what I eat - heehee - so you got the low calories and low sod going on too - nice heart healthy choice Tess!] And I don't blame you on the artificial sweetner because it just tastes so odd to me, bad after taste.
    You're doing great - now go drink your water I have to figure out what's for breakfast. lol

  2. PS I am going to do a separate post at the end of the day for our challenge because I can't plan what I eat ahead of time...Sometimes I think I want something and then it makes me nauseous, [dang gastritis!] so will have to wait until the end of the day. Hope that is okay with you.

  3. What a great start Tessa. Keep up the great work. You can do this, I'm so cheering you on.
