Inspired by Miss Michele, I thought I'd post yesterday's food. I don't count calories, but it was a 30-point day, fairly typical or even a little better than average, and a good example of both my good and bad habits.
2 slices of wholegrain toast (2)
1 T. natural peanut butter (2)
1 c. Cheerios (2)
1/2 c. chocolate soy milk (1)
Toasted bagel (6)
1 T. whipped cream cheese (1)
carrot and celery sticks (0)
1 oz. blue corn tortilla chips (3)
can of seltzer (0)
1 oz. Kashi TLC crackers (2)
1 sl. American cheese (2)
1 oz. cashews (4)
Tossed salad with no dressing (0)
1/2 pita (1)
2 falafel patties (2)
tomatoes, parsley, and onion (0)
tahini sauce (2)
green tea (0)
I think I did well with the veggies and not as well with not eating a bunch of snacky starchy things. You will notice the complete lack of fruit yesterday -- that's something I need to work on, and shop accordingly. In the interest of science, I put this into FitDay to get the calorie counts. Supposedly, this was only 1613 calories (35% fat, 52% carb, 13% protein). I guess that fits with the idea that WW points average about 50 calories each, but it still seems low. I need to use my food scale to be sure of portion sizes but I tried to be accurate.
Activity-wise, it was an easy day. I did my usual walking, about half an hour, and a little bit of weight training. FitDay says I burned about 100 calories.
I don't know if I trust all of these numbers, but I did feel like I ate when I was hungry yesterday and didn't when I was not, which is a lot better than the previous two days had been. I don't have an official weigh-in today, but I plan to do an unofficial weigh-in here before lunch. I'll post the results later today or tomorrow.
I never did catch up my journals for the weekend like I said I would. I think at this point it's better to just move forward. I just caught up my journal for today, 11 points so far. The whole journaling thing is a drag but it does keep me in check -- without writing things down, I'd be too tempted to have a nibble here, a bite there. Those little bites and nibbles are a pain to record so it's easier to just say no.
