Our family attended a local polka celebration last night. I'm proud of my self control... I ate healthy. My supper consisted of a cabbage roll, a bottle of water, and (drum roll, please!) I only ate a few of my son's french fries and a bit of his hot dog! "Helping" my picky eater with his meals has been my weakness lately.
I was stressed out on Monday and exceeded my calorie limit. Stuff happens.
Protein has been the focus this week. Sometimes it is tricky to reach 20%.
Here are my calorie counts for the week (2,000 calories/day):
Sat., July 14 – 1,994
Sun., July 15 – 1,921
Mon., July 16 – 2,453
Tues., July 17 – 2,089
Wed., July 18 – 1,983
Thurs., July 19 – 1,985
Fri., July 20 – 1,940
Have a good weekend, all!

I've begun adding more protein to my diet. It is more difficult to reach my limit of 2000 calories per day this way. That is a good problem to have. I just need to be sure I continue to consume enough carbs and fat, as well. Drawing from experience, my fiber intake needs to remain high or the extra protein could cause my 'system' to slow down. We'll see how it goes.
What are your favorite protein dense foods? I like fat free cottage cheese, chicken breast, low fat roast beef lunch meat, and eggs.
Here are my daily calories for this week:
Sat., July 7 – 1,932
Sun., July 8 – 2,012
Mon., July 9 – 1,958
Tues., July 10 – 3,087 -->I ate lunch at a restaurant and splurged on a dessert.
Wed., July 11 – 1,607
Thurs., July 12 – 1,642
Fri., July 13 – 1,949
Have a good weekend.

Man! It was another hot week. But we found ways to stay active. It could get old soon. What do you do to stay active while staying out of the heat?
My limit is 2000 calorie/day. I did pretty well this week:
Sat., June 30 – 2,382
Sun., July 1 – 1,837
Mon., July 2 – 2,037
Tues., July 3 – 1,998
Wed., July 4 – 1,727
Thurs., July 5 – 1,760
Fri., July 6 – 1,963
Please, share your steamy weather activities with me.

My doctor suggested a 2000 calorie diet for maintaining my weight.
I've set my daily carbs at 225-325 grams/day, protein at 50-175 grams/day, and fat at 44-78 grams/day.
If any of this sounds incorrect to you (carb, protein and fat grams), let me know please. I will double-check with my doctor next time I see him.
