tracking and soup

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

Tracking is so awsome! Every time I do it for a day it helps me so much, even when I go over my calories. This is my third day tracking and I'm over, within, over, but today the thing that pushed me over was a single scoop of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. 520 calories!!! So now I know that when my office mates go out for a treat, I'll get a freezie instead. Still not as healthy as a piece of fruit, but way better than ice cream.

I was also feeling extremely bottomless-pitty so I made a soup with all vegetables, potatoes and barley. No oil or anything, just started cooking the onions in water and added everything else. It's pretty tasty, and actually manages to fill me a bit.

So, even though my calories are higher than they should be if I'm going to lose any more weight, I'm totally still in the game.

    Great!!! Hang in there... there is nothing wrong with having icecream from time to time, but moderation is the key! You are doing just fine! Best wishes! ~Karo

    This journey is more a game of averages, trying to have more of the good days than bad. Take it one meal, one exercise, one positive day at a time. -- Lou
