Party Day Went Well
Sunday, August 19, 2012      0 comments

Knowing that my church would be having a fellowship meal after church today, and knowing what the menu was, I decided to be careful with calories at b'fast. This turned out to be a wise decision! It worked out really well. The menu wa... Read more

Doing a lot of experimenting here, and here's my take on the lower sodium options I've tried so far, some I plan to try soon, and some strategies I am learning. I will ask your forgiveness, though, for not listing the mg sodium/serving on each o... Read more

Okay...when you're planning to eat out, MAKE SURE you've recorded the correct nutrition figures for the items you're interested in. Made that mistake with Chili's today. For the record, the Caribbean Salad with Grilled Chicken is awesome an... Read more

This has been another day when I just can't get myself even to the bottom of my calorie range, even though I had half a blueberry cake donut this afternoon. It's strange... I tried something new today, fixing up a can of Blue Runner No Salt... Read more

Well, it's happened a couple times, but I've been able to salvage it at the last minute up to now. One would think that being below the SP calorie range is a good thing. It's not. None of us want our bodies to go into starvation-mode, hoard... Read more

Went to see a couple friends perform at a new pub in town. I thought I had prepared myself for the extra calories of the beer. But...I didn't plan for having a second drink. I was shocked to find out how many calories are in a shot of Bailey's!!... Read more
When is Dinner not really Dinner?
Wednesday, August 08, 2012      0 comments

Really tempted to splurge tonight and go way over my calorie limit...I'm not exactly hungry, but I'm not satisfied, not in the slightest. My friend made homemade pizza for us, and given what was left for my day, I ate what amounted to a half ser... Read more
