Today I decided to log all of the foods that I have been eating throughout the day. When I started putting in the numbers I found that I've already eaten most of the allowed calories for the day. It was a shocker to see how much food I take in, even though the choices that I made were pretty healthy. Since I do not eat meat I always try to make sure that my foods I eat have a high protein content. Overall I'm going to try to make sure that I do not go over (or too much over) the recommended calories for the day.
This morning I went on a bike ride on the Farmington Valley Greenway. It's a really neat bike trail that is paved and takes you through various towns. I had my mp3 on and I found that the ride didn't feel like the challenge that it usually is. Maybe Lady Antebellum can just do that to bikers.
Yesterday when I went to the Big E fair I did not do as bad as I usually do. Usually when I go to the Big E I have a vanilla shake, fried dough from the CT building, sweet potato fries, and some funnel cake. Yesterday I had a chocolate shake (it's just chocolate milk) and lots of buttered popcorn. Nevertheless, I love fairs and always feel the need to have a pet pig afterwards.
The plan for the rest of the day is to visit the parents, maybe hit the gym for a short jog since I have to practice jogging for a while if Im planning on running a 5k, eat dinner, and read articles for school.
Have a good day Sparkers.
