Tomorrow will end my first week since really getting back onto spark people. I had been counting calories for awhile but was messing up a lot and forgetting to track. This week, however, I pretty much stuck to my guns.
I've alotted myself 1700 calories a day. So far the only day I tripped myself up was Friday. I wound up only having 300 calories left for dinner because of some fooish choices the day before and that morning. I was starving most of Friday because even though I stayed within my calories on Thursday my food choices were not so healthy. In fact, I ate a large majority of my food Thursday morning. It was a social thing. I was sitting around chatting with a friend of mine, caved in and had chips, cheese, and a diet coke. Plus my breakfat and lunch choices were high in calories. I had very few fruits and veggies that day. So, I played catch up on Friday because I was so hungry. I tried to do well but ultimately, at the end of the day, I chose to go 200 calories over my 1700 mark so that I would have a decent supper. I don't regret my decision. On a couple of days I had actually been under calories by about 200-300 so I think that it evened out.
I have my breakfast and lunch planned out for tomorrow. I don't know what I will have for dinner but if I stick with what I have planned out I should have around 800 calories for dinner.
I have not exercised a lot or even every day but I have gotten some exercise in. I should have some time to exercise tomorrow. I'll probably do 10-15 minutes.
On Monday I will weigh myself. I have no doubt that the weight will go down. I've been doing very good this week!
