Not bad for a high calorie day!

Sunday, July 24, 2011

I told myself earlier this morning that it was okay for me to go over my calories today - in fact I even planned to. I think it's actually good to go over your calories every once in a while because it's like a wake up call to your metabolism - gotta keep it on it's toes, so to speak. My metabolism is still doing pretty well, I lost a pound this week which I'm happy with. I'm adding some physical activity this week so I figured it would be okay to go over.

Breakfast was my bagel and cream cheese combo with some strawberry preserves. 316 calories.

For lunch we went to my favorite restaurant right now, Zemog's. I had my 500 calorie salad, but before that I had a whole bowl of guacamole - 4 tablespoons worth. They have the best guacamole that I've ever had in my life. It seriously is unmatched. I'm so glad husband knows the recipe :) So lunch ended up being 995 calories. Because of the chips and guac I wasn't able to finish my salad.

I got home, put Max down for his nap, and all I wanted to do was take a nap. But instead, I did DDR on the wii for 25 minutes and burned 200 calories. Then I started making this really yummy dessert that tastes like pina colada. It's relatively low calorie, too. I of course had some. And I added some chocolate chips to it :) 224 calories.

I also busted out the wii fit today and did 30 minutes on that! After Max's nap we walked down to the park, and played there for a bit. Overall, today was a very active day considering it was a day off from exercise :)

I wasn't hungry for dinner, but I had some more of that dessert. And I ate about a half of a hot dog that Max didn't finish. 257 calories.

So for a cheat day, I didn't even go over my calories by 300. I'm sitting at 1791. I'm full, though. I'm over in fat and a little under in protein. Otherwise within all ranges. Not at all bad for a splurge type of day!
