5pm - had 1000 calories during a light day, and I am starving right now. Am drinking H2O to see if I can hold off for dinner at 7pm.

The goal this week is to stay within our calorie range. I almost did it yesterday, 34 calories over, and amazingly, I was not starving. Not sure why sometimes I am ravenous and sometimes not. Actually, I still had too much cal. and I see where I could have cut some out.
I do not think I really needed the sour cream on the potato. It just gets lost, it melts into the potato and then you have to put more on!!!!
Trivia this morning tricked me; I am trying so hard to get 100%. The question was" just adding 15 minutes of walking, not changing anything else would help you lose weight."The answer was no, not yes. I guess the time has to be longer. But at any rate, the question makes me realize I have to get back to my 2 mile walking program, now that the weather is improving.

Since it is April 1, I am back to trying to get 100% on trivia for this month!! I have slowly moved from 60% overall to about 68% overall. It seems silly for a 66 year old adult woman to be fiddling with spark "points" and trivia percentages!
However, the value of these things is they keep my focus on eating correctly.
Example: today's trivia asked, "which has more calories the mcdonalds kiddie cone or apple dipper? " I never eat at mcdonalds, but I used my laptop to look up the answer. Yes, it took time ( in that time I could have been doing strength exercises!) However, if I ever do go to mcdonalds, I will know which low calorie dessert to get!!
Yesterday I did something very bad. I had bought these wonderful See's easter eggs to give away next week to my mom and daughters, and I could not stand it, and broke into one, (rocky road for those who are interested) and polished off the entire thing in two sittings. One third of the egg was a serving at 170 calories, so 3 times 170 is 510. Ouch, ouch, ouch. Have not put it on my tracker yet.

It is motivating knowing people read each other's blogs. So, thanks everyone!! I am getting married on May 19. It is all very scary, for lots of reasons. It is also rather exciting and fun.
Food report: was starving by 5pm, ate a "healthy snack", trail mix, at 320 calories, but it was not satisfying. When going wedding cake shopping, I found a bakery that had the most delicious hot cross buns, only available at Easter time, so I overdid it, eating two of them. But when something is special like that, it best not to worry!!
I mean, these were really special. The little cross on top was custard, not that goopy icing!!! And the cake itself was studded with the most delicious dried fruits, not those dried raisins. And delicate spices had been mixed into the dough. I never had anything like it!!!
