Caloric intake for Sept 4

I'm going to keep track of what I've eaten.  If you see something that could easily be replaced, please, please do tell me!  Healthy options are nice... but sometimes I don't know how to make them on my own!

I know I should be drinking mostly water, or at least Diet Pepsi, but it wasn't readily available over the weekend.  I don't think I'm brave enough to drink Washington DC tap water, either.  So, that's my excuse ^_^

1 Large Fried Egg - 92 calories
2 Slices Whole Wheat Toast - 256 calories
12oz Pepsi (GROSS, I KNOW) - 150 calories

12oz Pepsi (GROSS AGAIN) - 150 calories

12oz Pepsi - 150 calories
Shake & Bake coating - 106 calories
1 1/2 lean pork chops (boneless/skinless) - 690 calories
1 cup mashed potatoes - 162 calories
1 cup frozen yellow corn - 161 calories
2 pat of salted butter - 36 calories

Total calories for the day: 1,952
Goal calorie for the day: 1,200 - 1,550

When I first started my "diet," I was eating over 2500 calories a day.  I'm slowly watching what I eat, but it's SO hard when you have a non-dieter boyfriend whom you live with. 

What food is hardest to give up?

As I was making a sandwich tonight, I realized how my eating habits have changed over the last few months. So I was wondering what food or foods have others found difficulty in giving up since starting on a weight loss or healthier eating journey?
During the sandwich making it occurred to me that I used to need cheese on just about everything. I would even eat slices of cheese as a snack. However, now I don't miss the cheese and a spluge of it means grating a little bit of low-fat cheddar onto an occassional egg white omelet or fat free bean tacos.
