J- today i got a call into work unexpectedly. BUT VERY GOOD...i love being dependable and making money. I did OK for food intake, I did go a lil over 200 calories my 1200 calories for the day at work. I worked from 4:30 pm - 10:15 pm with a 13 minute break, work was SLAMMED and i stood on my feet all day except with 13 min break. So when I got off work I felt like a snack size mcflurry with Reese' TOP THAT OFF....when i went home my buddy had bbq food all cooked and i couldn't say no to that. So I went WAY OVER calorie intake and didn't really measure my TODAY was a cheat day for i work, so i'll be better planned with my menu


M - 1810 CALORIES PLUS!!!!!

S - i have a neice that was just born yesterday. She was born a month earlier than expected but is healthy. She was actually born a few days before her brother turned 6 years old which he will turn this coming monday.

*J- 2ND DAY OF EXCELLENT HEALTHY LIVING. Hectic day at work. Just started last week. Been here in california for a month and the fast food place where i work at is the only one that says I'M HIRED! Once i found out I was working today, I planned my meal for the entire day and stuck to it. The original draft I would have consumed over 200 calories over my goal of 1200, but I sacrificed not having the chipotle bbq grilled chicken snack wrap.

*E- 60 min walk.
*M- 1200 calories

*S- made overdraft of menu today, found out that I went over calorie limit so I sacrificed a fave food of mine.
