Had a big day yesterday, started a complicated sewing project in the morning, took my mom to the doctor, then my brother and I did a family outing with her, taking my mom to Tiburon to sit in the sun and watch the boats in the water, but I still got a 30 minute walk in the morning. Did not want to go out, it was cold and foggy, but I am trying really hard to make exercise a habit. I was going to skip entering items in the food tracker for yesterday, because we ate dinner out, and I was in a hurry and did not measure things for lunch, blah, blah, blah.... However, now this tracking is a firm habit, and when I sat down to the computer this morning , I felt I HAD to enter the items I ate yesterday even thought I was only guessing so the calories could be as much as 500 off one way or the other (probably the other) Did I overestimate or underestimate? Who knows, but it is good I tried. Now I am sitting here at the computer all comfy in my big bathrobe, sipping hazelnut coffee, working up the courage to face another cold, foggy walk. Once I am out there, I know it will be okay.

7:30 pm---2000 calories, but I did start strength training. Used Coach Nicole video, she is great!!!
Went to Asian Art Museum for Bali Exhibit with a friend. We did very well, did not eat in any restaurants, did not spend any money, walked to the train station, all very good!!! Luckily I had some great leftovers to heat up and so we did have dinner together. Had lots of fun today with a friend with overeating and without overspending.
(Usually "out with a friend" is a 3000 calorie day)

Yesterday, checking into this blog periodically really worked. I stayed within my calorie range, for once. It was not that easy. I ate melon instead of crackers and cheese for my 4pm snack. I was hungry at dinner, but not starving, just good feeling hungry. There is a book I read back in the seventies and it was quite popular, called Thin Within, that analyzed people who were "naturally" thin, and they ate only when they were actually hungry. I wonder if I still have that book?
6:30 am - drinking hazelnut coffee, black and at computer
11 am -- walked to ocean, took bus back....felt I could have walked it, but that would have been overdoing it,and I would be too wiped out....pacing is important
9 pm -- was starving by 4pm....have to figure out how to have this not happen
