Lunch - Tuna Sandwich made with Whole Wheat Bread and an Apple
Dinner - Grilled Chicken served over a bed of Romaine Lettuce. My choice of a handful of almonds or berries on the side.

SOCIAL MEDIA POST: Share a picture/video of you exercising on my Facebook Fitness Group. It doesn't matter if you're on a treadmill walking, working out with a friend or with your trainer. Just let us know you're burning some calories!
SPECIAL NOTES: You might be hungrier than usual this week because you may not feel as "full" after your meals. Drink water, have a handful of popcorn, or eat an apple if necessary. A handful of plain Cheerios can be helpful as well.
