Darn those calories. I don't like 'em.
I was delighted by an invitation for breakfast out (downtown) and what was I to say to a sweet, dear man who just wanted a morning outing?? OK it included doing some errands too.
When I arrived home, I registered my intake like a good honest Sparkler and it didn't seem too bad.
During the lunch hour, I had my tea, open-faced 'sandwich' in 3 flavours and enjoyed a virtual teaparty experience. Added those calories too. And it didn't seem too bad.
Dinner was a wee bit 'o pasta, Alfredo sauce, drumstick & green beans. I kept the portions less than my usual... went to my nutrition page and WHAMMO
Those calories muliplied when I wasn't looking. I have mean, bad, misbehaving calories in my calculator.
What I learned today is that I really have to back off my other two meals if breakfast is a restaurant treat. I eat more 'out' than if I dine in at home. I was 'treating' myself all Sunday, so I missed my mark.
I hope you have better behaved units of energy at your house than I did.
