Weekend Challenge - Fitness & Food Tracking - Day 1

Here is today's Calories In/Calories Out (CICO) report:

Eaten 1,623
BMR* 1,982
Exercise 207
Total Burned 2,189
Differential -566

I overdid it at lunchtime today. I had lunch with a friend and that included a small bowl of pho (rice noodle soup) and steamed spring rolls. That part was majorly high in sodium so that's not necessarily good but I don't do that too often so I'm not really worried about that.

If I had stopped at that, I probably would have been okay but I decided to stop at Tim Horton's on the way back to work to get a tea and their current promotion is that a donut is only 49 cents with any hot beverage so I caved and bought a chocolate-glazed donut, my favourite. I NEVER buy donuts! I can't remember the last time I ate a donut; it's been that long ago. And, although I did enjoy it, it definitely wasn't worth the 260 or so calories that the nutrition tracker says it is.

Fortunately, I wasn't hungry again until just now and I'm being good just having a salad for dinner.

I got a good kickboxing workout in this morning as well but I didn't burn as many calories as I normally do doing it but I don't know why.

And, FYI, any time anyone wants to see what I eat and what fitness I do, my trackers are shared for all to see.

    You GO, Joanna! I am proud of you for stopping at the salad. Unfortunately, after my salad I got into the vanilla wafers. I know most of it is stress eating and being emotionally dragged across the cold, hard, bumpy floor, but those vanilla wafer cookies were so yummy that I had about 3 servings (24 cookies!) and ate them after 1am, so I get to track them as today's breakfast.

    If that ain't a kick in the teeth, I don't know what is! But they sure as heck were good!! LOL

    WOOHOO! Sounds like a good day overall. I've only had 1/2 of 2 donuts in the past year. They have started to not taste as good as they used to and... too greasy. Now that you know, you can make changes as you want. One donut does not a bad day make.
