Day 12 of Tracking - first problem day! I am 332 calories (~1/10 pound) over my BMR. Breakfast and lunch were fine. Went to Olive Garden for lunch; went online to select meal before going to the restaurant to see the calories, then ate only 1/2 of the entree.
Dinner was going to be something easy - toast, cheese, soup. Then I was home alone this evening and felt hungry all night. I did record the extra calories as one line item I call WHOA!!!which is 100 calories, so I recorded 4 of them (from my favorites).
I don't know how I feel about recording the food and seeing that I have gone over in my calories. I know tracking the good and bad days will help. What did I get from this? While I was looking for something more to eat, I was thinking how I would record it. Maybe next time I am home alone in the evening I should go out instead. I need to shop - Christmas, clothes and things I need for the house.
