Calorie Learning

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

Next time I go out to eat, I will check calories before I go.

Went to sushi bar for lunch with my sister and her family. And, in the evening, my daughter and I stopped in the Godiva store at the mall when we were shopping for a new pair of shoes. Who knew that one little truffle could come with such a high caloric expense???? JUST ONE!

Yesterday, between the sushi and the ONE truffle, I went over my calorie budget by about 350 calories. That's not devastating, but a learning experience for sure.

Glad I had green juice for breakfast and went to bed relatively early, so I didn't snack in the evening and woke up very well rested and ready for a 'make up' day!

In fairness, I did log more steps than my average on my fitbit yesterday (15000; my average is 11000 daily).

    I just found this on the web - apparently, one truffle is "only" 105 calories:

    1 1/2 truffles was 300 calories, so that would be 200 calories per truffle.

    So how many calories in a truffle?

    Lesson learned and take consolation in that the sushi was nutritious calories.

    Mmmm...I really did enjoy the truffle. It was worth it. So was the sushi - and you're right, I can and will make up for it the rest of the week, no problem. I'm becoming quite skilled in that way!

    Sushi can be pretty high in calories too, so I say, well done for being so close to your upper limit it,s calories over the whole week that really count, plenty of time to make up for that little blip.

    Sounds like your truffle was packed with some extra surprises. Hope you enjoyed every bit of it... that's always my reasoning for doing something a bit decadent.
