This is why I continue to Spark

Thursday, March 07, 2013

So I've been a little lax lately entering my food. I've given up sweets for Lent, doing pretty well, and so figured that since the sweets are the high calorie food in my normal maintenance diet, I really should not have to enter all of the "good" food that I eat right now.

Suprise, surprise! Today I happened to stop at a Boston Market for lunch figuring I could get something healthy there. After perusing the menu, I decided on a Mediterranean chicken salad with a piece of cornbread. The salad was good, but the cornbread was a little sweet (which made me feel a little guilty about my Lent resolution).

After finishing my meal, I decided to look it up in Spark. I figured maybe 400 or 500 calories. Well, much to my surprise, it was a whopping 830 calories! The salad alone was 670 calories and had 1380 mg of salt! Sure doesn't leave much for dinner, even on maintenance.

So this is why I need to continue to Spark. I'm just not good at guessing.
