So today I had
- a 3 egg omelet with salmon with the pan greased in butter
- a burrito bowl with no rice and beans, just 1/2 cup beef and 1/2 cup chicken, salsa, peppers, lettuce, and hot sauce
- hand full of blueberries and almonds
- Porter house steak
- Steamed cauliflower/broccoli mix
- Mushrooms in butter
- Fresh garden salad with dijon mustard sauce
- 1 Glass 1989 French Bordeaux
And I passed up on my favorite toll house pie!

I'm hovering around the 200 lbs mark at 5'10 and I'm looking to lose about 25 lbs
I eat a salad every afternoon ( spinach, avocado, peppers, cucumber, tomato, chicken) and for dinner usually a dark green veggie ( spinach, broccoli rabe, or mixed frozen veggies) and meat.

Looking very good on the menu. I would be a little skeptical of the mapmyrun calorie count, though. Unless you were climbing straight up a mountain, or were carrying your wife on your back, you are unlikely to have burned more than 250-300 calories on your wa
