I was on a roll today. Had a healthy breakfast and lunch. Then came dinner. I had forgotten to get something out of the freezer so I called my 20 year old daughter and asked her to get some chicken breast out of the freezer and if she was going to eat at home to get some out for herself also. She said she would but, of course, she did not. At 4:15 she called me and said I can't find the chicken all I can see is pork chops. Now I am very worried about the girl. When I got home I went to the freezer and the whole front is nothing but chicken breast. That is all besides the point to a certain extend. I decided that since everything else was frozen I would just have oatmeal but, no oatmeal. So I decided on turkey sausage and pancakes. I know pancakes are not a good choice. I had planned on just having a couple small pancakes but the recipe made about 15. I ended up eating more than I should have. As it turns out the amount I went over in calories is the same amount of extra pancakes I ate. over in calories 168. Not too bad but anything over is not good.
My calorie counting is running over into my every day life. I am the HR manager at a retail store and I have 2 candy dishes in my office one is for chocolate and one is for mints. People come in to talk to me about varies things and they sit there and eat candy after candy after candy for some reason today I kept adding up calories of the candy they ate. One woman had about 7 pcs. and I said you know you just ate about 200 calories she just laughed. A couple others had 100 and about 300. They could not believe how many calories such a small amount of candy adds up to. I do pretty good about not eating the candy myself. Every now and again I have a mini candy bar depending on the type they tend to range between 40 and 70 calories each. The star mints are 60 calories each. So you see it doesn't take much to rack up the calories. Can't wait for Monday so I can weigh in.
Good Luck on your journey.
