Week 12, The Tilt-a-whirl Hurl and 8 hours is too long

I took these pics while ON the tilt-a-whirl at kiddieland last night (Thursday). We rode it twice. It was probably the last time I will ride it. I have apparently gotten to old for it. It used to not bother me at all. Last night it made me sick!!! After I got off, I propped myself up against the fence (smile) and watched the kids finish spending their tickets.... around and AROUND on the horses (not a pleasant thing to watch when you are dizzy, but what kind of mama doesn't watch her kids on the horses?) I was still dizzy when I went to bed.

Below you will see what I ate Thursday. I did just fine until (*sigh*) I went for 8 hours without eating. (I drank a sno cone between there, but no food) Then, at 10 p.m., when I was supposed to have a 500 cal supper, I was dizzy and tired and HUNGRY and I ate a 1,080 cal supper! shame. What amazed me was the cal content of 3 tacos, the fact that I easily could have eaten 3 more, and that I ate that all the time before.


8 a.m... 3 eggs, 4 bacon (precooked kind, good cals), 1 plain toast, 1 jelly toast, 1 sugar free pudding= 500 cals

11 a.m....snack...fiber one bar...140 cals

1:40 p.m..lunch....grill cheese, turkey sandwich, fiber one bar= 500 cals

1:50 p.m. ...snack...(yep, I just ate lunch and here I am again...feeling tired= hungry) pudding times 2= 150 cals

8 p.m.....junior size sno cone...150 cals

10 p.m....3 tacos, 2 fiber one bars....1,080 cals

So, it wasn't the best effort day. I went over by 530 cals.
I drank 44 oz water and exercise was mowing the yard (30 mins)

Today is a new day and tomorrow's report WILL be better!


  1. When does that happen, we wake up "old"? I can't do the tilt-a-whirl either. I used to love it, but it doesn't love me!

    Today will be better for you eating wise, I feel it! =)

  2. I have horrible childhood memories of getting sick on the Tilt-A-Whirl and my mom screaming for the ride operator to "Stop the ride!!" I was four years old and I've never been on one since.
    The tacos, where they homemade? I often times get Taco Bell tacos for 170 calories a piece, or Bueno tacos for 200 a piece. Actually, I buy the Party Tacos from Bueno, only 143 for each.
    Keep your head up and battle those urges to go over with every motivating thought you can muster! Youcan do this!!! You're doing this wonderfully!

    Keep up the great work,

    Take care and God Bless you and yours,
