Day 237

This is a quicky check in because I want to have time to visit some blogs before I go go bed.

You see Spidey, I am heeding your warning about late nights. ;)

Today I had:

B - 377
1 cup of yogurt - 260
1 cup of pineapple - 74
1 tbls of agave - 43
L - 400
1 veggie pattie - 107 with 1 oz cheese - 113
1 cup of salad - 20
2 tbls. of wheat germ - 70
1 tbls. dressing - 90
D - 355
5 oz of prawns - 150
3 cups of mixed vegetables - 105
1 tbls. fat - 100
S - 293
1 cup of yogurt - 260
1 tbls of agave - 43
Calories - 1425
1/2 hr. Elliptical Trainer - 400cal burner
6 cups of water (still struggling to get to 8)

All in all, I had a good day. I ate exactly what I agreed to in my food plan and I am very happy about that. I see how doing the calorie count is really critical.

I want to consume around 1200 calories a day and what I am learning by writing the calories next to the food is that I went over 1200 both yesterday and today because of my food choices. I love that full fat greek yogurt but it is too high in fat calories to have twice a day so if I want a snack I am going to have to choose something with far less calories. That seems reasonable.

One day at a time and this day is over!!!


  1. I added a picture to my sidebar of the tattoo that I am getting. Its kinda squished in there - but its going to be about 4 inches wide, 6 inches high.

  2. keeping track helps, like your blog...
    will keep checking in :-)

  3. You're doing so well!! Keep it up!!
    Thanks for your kind words!!

  4. you are motivated and thats half the battle! i love how you journal your food. i probably would make such sucky food choices if i were to post mine....

    hmmm...might just do that.

  5. Loved the image you've decided on Christine, very very beautiful!!!

    Welcome Butterfly Girl! Nice name. Thanks, yes it is helping tremendously.

    Mellisa, always good to see you over here. I'll drop by tonight!

    Welcome Lady T! Yes, keeping motivated is half the battle. I am finding that journaling the food helps me to be very conscious of what I am putting in my mouth and making it public record is somehow making me extremely responsible. LOL!

  6. Staying up late will kill your diet. I have been doing that too off and on and it is impossible to stay up without eating. I get tired, and then the only wake-up is food-sugar-caffeine-calories.

    Good for you to regiment yourself for success! I am going to bed now, as it is late here!!
