Counting calories is . . . a total drag.
I've tried other things, but today I earnestly counted all the calories I ate. Eye opener there!! I am eating 400 more calories than I would have guessed. That's a lot of course. Particularly when I'm trying to lose weight.
Paying attention to the carbs too, maybe first even. Trying to keep the carbs under 80. Today was a fail. No denying there was some candy involved, but the apple at lunch didn't help either. Bummer.
I did however, get in 101 grams of protein. That's great news. I'm trying to take the diet one step at a time. Last week my focus was NOT SNACKING. No controlling my other intake besides not snacking. It was not a total success, but it was ok.
This week I was back on the snacking watch. Now I'm debating counting protein instead. Not sure.
