1500 calories

Friday, May 04, 2012

Mid-afternoon yesterday I had the feeling that my eating had been horrible, and I was bumming because of how few calories I thought I had left for the day. I knew I would go over calories because I was not going to make it wthout eating for the rest of the day. My co-worker, who knows I tally online, said, "Go enter your foods. It will make you feel better. I think you'll be surprised." So I did.

Lo and behold, I was on track for protein, carbs, fats, etc., AND I had a whopping 500 calories left for the day! Oh, the change in mood was amazing. I was mentally cooking and planning and calculating the delicious wonders I would have for dinner. What a treat!

So I learned a few things yesterday:
1. I am eating healthier than I give myself credit for
2. Logging foods is totally worth the effort
3. Other people are noticing my healthier habits

I have a workout scheduled for 5:30 today. It will be my second week of having a third workout for the week. Next week I increase to four per week. Baby steps.
