The only thing I did not get in today was my activity and oil.  I don't take multi-vitamins.  I get enough from the foods I eat.

The seaweed soup came from my mom's house.  She literally makes a big bucket of the stuff!  It's seaweed and mussels.  It's in soup form and made with mostly water with a bit of chicken broth and clam juice.  It's so good!  It's probably not even that many points, but I wanted to add a point for each cup just in case.

The half a bell pepper was 9 points and worth every one of them!  I used 80% lean ground beef, 1/2 cup of rice, stewed tomatoes and 2/3 cup of shredded colby cheese.  I could have had two, but was full after the first one.  Three months ago, I would have automatically put a whole pepper on my plate.  Today, I was full after eating half, so I stopped.  I am really proud of myself.  I ended the evening with a nice cup of steamed milk with a teaspoon of decaf coffee.  Yumm!

I have been looking for some recipes so I can get another one of my goals down.  I am leaning toward making a new side dish for a meal.  I will probably give it a go on Sunday.

I have to travel again next week.  I will be home late two nights, so dinner will either have to be packed in the car or something light when I get home.  I did pretty well this week, so we shall see.

I am off to read more blogs!

    1. It's delicous and really good for you. If you have a Korean restaurant where you live, you might ask them about it!

  2. I haven't heard of the soup either but I've been seeing people mention seaweed salads on their blogs. You are doing great! Knowing when to stop has always been a problem for me. I was always taught to "clean my plate". Now I use a smaller plate. :)

  3. Good job on your diet there! I've been pushing my limits lately, going overboard one day and then pulling in the next day. So I'm planning to be "firmer" next week :)
