All this yo-yo'ing...

Morning weight: 197 lbs.

Well, I'm right back where I started from. This is really frustrating. Well, not all that frustrating since I haven't really, really put myself into it. But anyway, I'm not happy being at this weight, I feel heavy, sluggish, and clumsy.

Food for the day:
I started today out with some Zola, a juice/smoothie drink made from the acai berry. I think it had something like 125 calories, 22g of sugar and 29g of carbs in it.

For lunch I went to a Chinese restaurant and ordered some sticky rice (it only costs $0.60 for a large container, holy crap). Anyway, I topped that off with some Hawaiian BBQ.

My post lunch snack was another bottle of acai juice, but this time I had the Bossa Nova brand. It is supposed to be lower in calories (only about 100) and lower in sugar content (18g) and carbs (21g).

Lately I have been drinking a lot of acai juices (Bom Dia, Zola, Sambazon, Bossa Nova, Fruita Vida, Amazon Thunder, etc....also ad to the list POM). I like all of the acai juices and haven't chosen a favorite just yet. I think this is partly because I am used to having acai in a bowl not a bottle. When I was in Bahia in Salvador I ate this refreshing bowl of frozen acai blended with banana, and topped with nuts and granola.

Oh man, it was perfect. I gotta say, it is probably one of my favorite things to eat on a hot day.

Have you ever tried One Natural Experience Acai Juice? I find it to be the freshest Acai berries of all the juices...

Is that the one that comes in the juice box package?? I'm not sure that I like them in juice form. I'd rather it be thick and blended.
