Does Coffee Count as Breakfast?

Well. I haven't been on SparkPeople in 37 days according to my status setting. I haven't gained any weight but I also haven't lost anything.
My main problem is that I don't have enough money to buy food. I have to eat what I can, when I can. A lot of times it's leftovers from my boyfriend's mom's house. I'm not getting enough vegetables because of this. Mainly, my only meal of the day is dinner because that's when I can get leftovers or my boyfriend gets me dinner. I think my body is holding onto everything because most days I get two meals a day, no snacks in between. I usually eat oatmeal in the morning (you can buy it at the Dollar Store...believe it or not) and then nothing again until dinner. Unless for some reason I have leftover leftovers from dinner the night before. Then I eat the leftovers from the night before for lunch and dinner the next day depending on how much there is. Sometimes, it's just random things I find in the apartment to eat. I'm not tracking the food because I don't feel like it's enough to actually matter. It's just trail mix (another Dollar Store find), or a piece of pizza from last week. For those of you who don't know...pizza lasts for-freaking-ever!
I guess I stopped getting on SP because I can't figure out what to do. I don't know if I should work out as much as I was or what. They say you should burn 500 calories more than you are taking in but if you are only taking in 1000 calories should you still burn 500? That would leave me with a daily caloric count of 500. That sounds incredibly unhealthy.
Because I'm not eating as well as I was I don't feel like working out. I feel like working out isn't really helping if I can't eat properly. The silver lining in all of this is that I haven't gained weight back!
Anyway, I thought blogging about this could help me get back into the swing of SPeopling.
