Meal: Breakfast
Time: N/A
What I ate or drink? N/A
Number of calories: N/A
Carbs: N/A
How much or number of ounces: N/A
Where eaten or drank:  N/A
Reflection: I do not eat breakfast because I ran errands and I did not take the time to eat any food or drink anything.  My advice is to consume at least something for breakfast for it is the most important meal of the day.

Meal: Lunch
Time: 12:30 PM
What I ate: 2 large pancakes, 3 Tbsp. margarine, 1 freshly made pork sausage pattie, 3 slices bacon, and 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
Location: Home
Calories: 700
Carbs: 49
Drink consumption: 40 oz. unsweetened Kool-Aid
Reflection: I admit that despite the fact that I didn't have breakfast, it could have increased the amount of foods that I consumed.  The meal was more or less a brunch instead of a lunch, but I have trouble keeping my portions small.

5:00  pm
Reflection: Not a meal, but I have consumed 16 oz. water and 10 oz. coffee.  At the time I just woke up, but I realize I should have eaten.
