Double Dog Dare You Challenge: Day 2

egg, blue cheese portobello mushroom sandwich & coffee w/ soy milkBreakfast: My new favorite breakfast!  Eggs over easy, feta cheese atop a portobello mushroom with pico de gallo.  It is comfort food at its finest.
WW Points: 6 / Calories: 260
acorn squash w/ rosemary and asiago, broccoli & veggie burgerLunch:  Mashed acorn squash with a dash of rosemary and a sprinkle of asiago cheese paired with broccoli and a tomato basil veggie burger. I also added a tbsp of butter to the squash.
WW Points: 13 / Calories: 645

string cheeseSnack:  String Cheese
WW Points: 2 / Calories:80

avacodo spring rolls & honeydew melonDinner: Avocado Spring Roll and Honeydew Melon from Central Market.  Fast food doesn't have to be unhealthy.
WW Points: 8 / Calories: 310

Water: 84 oz consumed

Total Calories:  1295 calories
Total Points:  29 WW points

I made my calorie goal for the challenge but went over my goal of 25 WW points. I had a bit more fat today than normal with the tbsp of butter in the squash and the avocado for dinner. All in all I am pleased with the day.  I am not really doing anything different for the challenge than I normally do other than actually counting calories and points and even then it is only to get the tally.  I feel really good that the choices that I am now making.  Seeing the calorie count is reaffirming that I am on the right track now and I don't have to expend huge energy on tracking every little thing that goes into my mouth if I am making good choices from the get go.

I want to take a stroll around blogland and see how everyone is doing but my eyes are getting heavy right now so I think it is best to go to bed.  I hope everyone on the challenge (or not) had a great healthy day.  See y'all tomorrow.
