Today I finally adjusted my Sparkpeople settings to reflect that I haven't been making an exercise to workout while my foot was healing. Until I know I'm ready to commit to working out again, I figured it's safer for me to have my calorie intake adjusted to reflect the situation. It's not a huge decrease, but at least now it's more accurate.

It seems like I continuously have trouble with my iron intake & after calculating how much protein I should ingest, it appears I'm usually way under with that as well. Arg. Guess I should start making a more concentrated effort with balancing that.

I made delicious large salads for G-Man & I for lunch/supper. (I call whatever my second meal is lunch, no matter what time...and tonight was 5:30pm.) I've just been getting hungry again in the last 30min or so (9:30pm). I'm still low on protein & calcium, so I think I'm going to just make myself a protein shake.

I ended up insanely over calories yesterday due to two decisions I made: I took G-Man for Wendy's because he was having a really hard day, was starving & still took the bus with me way out to the car dealership to pick my car up (normal check up) & went out for beer with another couple and ate some nachos. I know I could've taken G-Man for Wendy's and not indulged myself or trying to hold out & make something at home, but we were both starving then & it would be another 30min just to get home. While I had planned to have some beer, I hadn't been expecting to split 3 pitchers or eat some nachos. One of the friends bought the latter to share on top of their meals & they didn't eat much of it. Because it was directly in front of me, even though I had told myself that I wouldn't get anything because I'd recently (2h) had Wendy's, even though I felt relatively full, I still ate the damn things just because they were there. I have a really hard time not eating food when I can see it. *sigh* I need to work on control, having ready snacks available & moderation.

I *am* super happy tonight about push ups. As I previously blogged, my goal is to be able to do 100 push ups by my birthday (knee push ups count, though I'd like to do some off my knees again). Well, I haven't been doing any upper body stuff since I hurt my foot back on Feb. 4th, so I figured I would've lost how well I was doing. The first time I tried to do push ups last fall, I think I was able to do *maybe* 5 or 11. I was also kind of sad when I did Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred lvl 1, Week 1. I couldn't do all of them. After maybe 2 workouts, I was able to do them all, though it was tough. A month has passed & I got down to see where I am tonight so that I can start the 100 Push ups workout tomorrow. I did 20 knee push ups with great form before I had to stop! I'm already 1/5 of the way to my goal! emoticon And really, probably even further because I likely could've done more if I'd rested for a couple of seconds, which I'll allow myself to do for my goal push.

I also made some chocolate raw balls that I'll post photos of tomorrow.
