So that's what they mean by "it all adds up"

Tuesday, February 18, 2014

Man! Today I lounged in bed, not feeling all too great. I stumbled out of my room this morning to pour some cereal for the boys and because I actually was a bit hungry, I ate some myself. I snacked on a few crackers and an apple later in the afternoon. By noon I was feeling much better and made myself some lunch, helping myself to a portion of the edamame I'd given my son for lunch.

And then I went to track everything and let me tell you what... IT ALL ADDS UP! What I would have considered "practically nothing," if you had asked me estimate all came to a grand total of 1100 calories! Holy canola, I guess somebody's getting on the treadmill after the boys are in bed this evening!

I hope that someday I learn how to look at food and think "yes, this is plenty," instead of "ACK! Give me MORE!" But until that day, I guess I'll be using the tracker!

    At least you did track it and now you know. You CAN do it!

    Tomorrow's a new day. New chances to learn from our past and make better choices for our future. (this being said by the person who had a sluggish day and over ate) We will both do better tomorrow!
