Almost 2 years since I blogged here.

Thursday, May 10, 2012

So much has changed since my last blog in 2010. In June of 2011 we moved from GA to northern Maine and then in December 2011 (yes the same year) we moved again to upstate NY. Our daughter has married and one of our son's has graduated from college. We have 1 child left at home now and I am starting to feel the pangs of the empty nest syndrome. I have added on the weight especially in the past 8 months. The past 2 months I have been going to the gym regularly and for the first time in 20 years since I have been heavy I can really see a change in my body. Exercising is the key. Who would have thunk it?? Well that's it for now, I just wanted to check in and update :)

I just had a snack of Kirkland brand rice crackers and nuts. I love this stuff!! I poured about a cup into a bowl and snacked on it. So I come here afterwards to put it into my daily intake and am I surprised to find out how many calories are in that stuff.... Of course all the nutritional info is right there on the back of the bag. Did I ever check that out??? NO..... So with breakfast and lunch I am basically at my calorie take for the day.... Would I have been satisfied with a 1/4 cup which is the serving size? YES I would have..... emoticon emoticon

    yea, that's happened to me before too!

I now try to enter my calories in First before I eat. That way I can change what I'm going to eat if necessary.

Good luck!

It's the end of the weekend. Yesterday I did pretty well. I worked last night and that always helps me stay on track. Today was another good day!
