How many calories...?

Sunday, May 07, 2006

How many calories do I burn to assemble an excercise bike? Whew! But it's nice, it has features like speed and virtual distance and thumb pulse and water bottle holder and book rack. When Abi and I unpacked it, we didn't find any directions. So we prayed, and ABi went online and got the company, and we were able to download the instructions/owner manual. Had another successful day calorie wise, ALMOST having a bite of ANsel's cold pizza, but then denying myself. Some other time I'll see about making a pizza-wannabe with the part-skim Mozzarella cheese Abi and I got...I hope I can get to 240 by the end of this week!


Could have been so much worse

Friday, May 05, 2006

While I went considerably over my max in calories today, the accountability thru Spark has helped to keep it from going so much higher as it would have otherwise. So I am not totally displeased. I WAS prepared to be careful, and did try: it was not so much a matter of caving in as what choices were available at Don Pablo's. And I only ate half of the entree.
Didn't do my standard biking because I worked in the yard, planting some hostas and cutting the grass.Ouch, THERE are some muscle groups that want working out!


How Beautiful

Sunday, April 30, 2006

How beautiful is the Body of Christ! Especially when we see beyond our own church's walls. I LOVE my home church, of course, but it is so precious to get toknow other saints and get a broader view of the Body, thru Spark.


not up to snuff

Saturday, April 29, 2006

I went WAY overboard last night BUT I RECORDED everything. Kind of to show myself "see what you did???" Went over today too but less so. From eating without taking account first. I need to do the measuring FIRST and adjust BEFORE I eat. Also, we ran out of the lite bread, so that made a big difference.I need to do ALL THINGSS UNTO THE LORD, and set my affections on things above...


a bit off...

Thursday, April 27, 2006

Tonight, we sent out for Chinese cause Abi wasn't feeling well nor up to cooking.It made for difficult calorie tracking though. I had a veggy eggroll...but that's not listed. SHRIMP is, so you pick that, but wonder about the calorie equivalent. Then there was the dumpling. Pork filled. I thought, well, maybe I can substitute a ravioli or a stuffed shell value. Best I could come up with was manicotti...I thought perhaps a half serving would be equivalent. And a few of the chunks of sweetnsour chicken, but it wasn't 4 ounces, so I put in as chicken nuggets. Stuff like that. I did go over the calorie limit, BUT as I looked at the week, I could see that at least the other days I was sufficiently under the max so as to average out as within limits. And I've done more than the necessary exercise. So, while I went off, I wasn't BADLY off, and don't feel "well, I've gone this bad, so I may as well go whole hog." Rather, it's back to good ol' oatmeal tomorrow, and a closer watch.Glad I kept it low the rest of the week!
