If I learned anything from Friday, it is this: "Don't cook foods to give to others that are major calorie killers and that you love".
Today is the first family reunion in about 17 years. Yesterday I started cooking for it. I'm bringing chicken enchiladas (I can make them for around 250 cals each!) and chocolate almond bark with pecans (TONS of calories).
I had no intentions of sampling any of the chocolate, but who was I kidding? That's like asking a recovering alcoholic to be the bartender. Bad decision!
Anyway, I ate some, I wrote it down, I adjusted the rest of my day and I STILL ended up having 43 cals leftover, so I count that as a VICTORY!!!!
Here's my Friday, foodwise:
11:30 a.m....breakfast....2 egg burritos (homemade)..500 cals
2:00 p.m....snack....4 pc chocolate pecan candy and a stick of cheese....233 (too much for a snack)
4:40 p.m....lunch...McD's small hamburger and a vanilla cone....400 cals (I was suprised at how full I got with this...and it was just 400 cals!)
6:45 p.m.....snack....fiber one bar...140 cals
9:30 p.m....supper...salad and a can of potatoes....500 cals
10:00 p.m...snack...1 pc chocolate pecan candy and a 100 cal pack of shortbread cookies....134 cals
Water: 88 oz.
Exercise: 3.1 miles walked! (took 1 hour and 6 minutes)
