I have consumed the food later than I should have, so I don't feel so great about that.  I managed to change some of the entries from the original plan that I had for today.  Other than that, I have to realize that with worries and fears come learning and responsibility.  Here is the diet plan, plus commentary:

Breakfast
6:30-8:00 A
Vanilla Yogurt
 * I did manage to consume that, but I consumed it later than it was planned.  I don't feel bad, but I guess there is a next time.

Lunch
11 AM- 12:30 PM
Penne with spinach onion dip and pasta sauce
*I added baked chicken to this meal, which added more protein to the lunch I had today.

Dinner
4:30-5:30 PM
Penne with spinach onion dip and pasta sauce
* I realized that I should have consumed more chicken and less pasta and sauce.  The taste for the pasta and sauce overwhelmed the chicken and the desire to consumed smaller, moderate portions.

Snack 1
9-9:30 AM
Sliced cucumber and Bacon
* I consumed this snack around 10-11:30 AM.  I consumed three slices of bacon and a cup of cucumber. I didn't realize that such an interesting combination tasted so good.

Snack 2
2:00 PM
Peanut butter crackers
* I was a bit hungry, or so it seemed.  I consumed the peanut butter crackers around that time, but a few minutes sooner.  As I type this, I finally realize that I need to do a better job of reading the nutritional value as far as food goes.

Snack 3
7:00 PM
Apple
* I was busy doing something as I consumed this apple. However, I consumed it around 4 PM instead of 7 PM.

Snack 4
8:30 PM
Orange
* In order to consume no more than the 2,000 limit for the day, I have come to realize that I needed to make some changes to this diet plan.  I have also come to realize that it is always better to plan, no matter what the end results will be.
