Food Journal


On the plus side no soda today and I drank all the water plus some, down side frequent trips to the restroom.

Exercise (HA) I can hardly walk today due to hiking up a waterfall yesterday.  My thighs are killing me.  I did manage to go down stairs and walk slowly around the basketball court while Olivia played with a tennis ball and Tim played basketball with some neighborhood kids.

Total Calories for the Day 1670


It’s not perfect but like I said small slow steps so it sticks.  I want to be aware of what I eat and the amount of calories it contains.  I was shocked to find out that hot dogs have 150 calories each.  I am going to have to avoid eating them on a regular basis.   I also learned that the “new” chicken recipe that we love tastes great but the sauce (due to brown sugar) has a lot of calories. I’ve always known that adding a roll or bread stick to dinner adds calories now I know how much.
