Another day down on Fish challenge

As I work my way through day 5, I am analyzing my feelings.  I'm wondering, is it my imagination, or do I have a little bit of a brighter outlook on life.  Last night I read the "clean eating" book that Laura lent me.  Seems to be a good way to go, but I'm not quite ready to give up my diet coke or salad dressing just yet. 
I need to decide on another challenge and also whether I'll keep up this food diary blog.  Here are some of the things that I'm considering for my next one week challenge:
-try eating 5 meals a day
-add only chicken to my protein food list
-cook without oil for one week
-have breakfast for dinner
Not sure what I will decide, I certainly don't have to pick any of these. 

 Today for breakfast, I made both Kel and I oatmeal.  He didn't want the almonds in his, so I decided to try something different as well.  I added 1/2 a banana and a tsp of pumpkin maple butter in addition to my blueberries.  It was a winning combination.  Much sweeter than just the almonds.  Lower in fat (lack of nuts).  Just as filling.
Lunch was Tuna on a tomato wrap.  I added spinach, lettuce, and pickles.  The tuna is premixed with non fat mayo. In addition I had green grapes.  It was truly a green meal.  318 calories.

Dinner plans are a green salad with white fish. I'm planning on grilling it, but have to get myself over to buy the gas for the grill.  I will have a snack sometime this afternoon, fruit and yogurt probably (apple).

 Went to Traders Joe this afternoon and picked up the vegetarian type foods.  Decided to try tom Tom Yam Soup (since I was low on my calories).  I split it with my husband so only 105 calories.  I'm not sure I'm a fan of the lemon grass, but I really enjoyed the soup.  It is spicy and warmed me up.
Dinner was as planned.  White Ruffy, spinach/tomato/pepper salad, green beans, and 1/3 cup Quinoa.

Total calories for the day: 1302.

Tomorrow is a "road trip".  Gotta get up early to make my breakfast.  Lunch is already prepared and is leftovers from dinner.

Note:  Kel was a little tired of all the fish so he got the same dinner but I had some Pork in the freezer that he had.  Unfortunately I'm not sure he is a fan of the Quinoa as he is currently eating english muffins with butter and jam.
