Hair of the dog

My Fitness Pal says: 1,538 calories for the day. I'm going to weigh in on Friday, so I'd better taper off what I eat.  Thankfully, the human vacuum cleaners known as kids (big kids) have taken care of most of the calorie-dense foods around here.   Hair of the dog refers to the cake which is about 360 calories per 100 g. (I'm learning a lot from this exercise - mainly that pizza is about 300 calories per typical 4.5-oz. portion, and cake is about 360 calories per 100 g. generous portion.)

Really it was cake, but I'll represent it with a pic of cupcakes because there's not much difference, and I already have cupcake pics on my compy.

OK, I have to keep up, even if I do not have photos. I'm in this till the 31st, and it's only a few more days. Take note that I documented everything with a photograph up until a couple of days ago. At this point I'm documenting everything (embarrassing as some of it is) with words, even if without a photo.

One serving of Cheetos (look, do you know what kind of progress it is for me to have ONE serving of anything?)

Two servings of green beans (that's right, I ate double on those)

One serving of barbecued chicken. This is skinless chicken breast cooked in a non-fat homemade, chopped-onion, vinegar, tomato etc. sauce.

Well, guess what - that's IT! That's it for today. When I have had to estimate calories, I estimate high, because I don't like to fool myself. I err on the side of MORE calories. But I try to be as accurate as possible. Oops, I forgot ONE Reese's PB cup, and not even the standard size, but the "snack size." 80 calories. I must have been very motivated today. See calories at the top of the post. Over and out.

  1. I'm hanging up on the edge of my plateau again, so obviously need to buckle down & get strict about tracking...
    But my trainer kicked my ass yesterday, arms & core are sore today. I know damn well I can't out-work my mouth, however.
