Yesterday, I switched from the regular nutrition tracker to the fancy new food-tracker-that-talks-to-you
r-exercise-tracker thing. Sure enough, it lowered my recommended daily calories from 1590-1940 down to 1300-1650. Honestly, that's a more realistic range for me anyway regardless of exercise. Then when I plugged in my exercise it adds exactly the number of calories you burned onto your bottom line. So my 50 minutes on the treadmill added 303 calories, giving me a low-end range of 1603.
So, same format as yesterday - first the food, then the analysis.
Breakfast: Green Goodness smoothie, plus cantaloupe and grapes.
Lunch: Hummus and tofu wrap with pita chips and the rest of the hummus, plus some blueberries I found in the kitchen from the farm box.
Dinner: Avocado, corn, black beans, cherry tomatoes, and lime juice. This is an old picture, but it's close enough.
Dessert/Etc: After the gym I ate a banana on the way home (it was supposed to be my AM snack, but I never made it that far between meetings). Then I ate some more cantaloupe and grapes, and two squares of dark chocolate with almonds.
Before the gym, my day was perfect by the numbers.
I wanted the banana after the gym, and then when I got home and put in the fitness minutes I realized I was still significantly under my daily calories, so I ate the cantaloupe and the grapes. Then an hour later I decided I wanted something else, so I had the chocolate. I am STILL under that 1603 calories for the day!
The ratio of carbs/fats/proteins was much better than yesterday, though.
Overall, today was better than yesterday. I think I need to eat more for breakfasts and lunches to spread out the calories throughout the day. I feel like yesterday and today I've been eating most of my calories at night trying to play catch up with the numbers on the tracker.
In other news, my doctor called with all my results from my first checkup in 900 years (approximately). Everything is NORMAL! Iron, Vitamins B & D, thyroid, cholesterol, etc. All good. Veganism is totally working out. :) She did throw in there that my 'biggest overall health risk is probably the weight' but she knows it's a work in progress so it wasn't a lecture or a judgement, just what I felt was an 'I'm your doctor I have to say that' type comment. I'm so relieved!
