So I'm back to logging what I eat in the bodybugg program. Turns out that just tracking activity, while keeping me on track for the exercise part of things, doesn't do much in terms of keeping calories in check.
But speaking of staying active and eating clean and stuff, what's up with how strange the scale is? The other day, I weighed 136.5 in the late afternoon. The next morning I was 138.5. (Maybe I'm weighing too often???) I think I'm going to weigh once a week, on Friday mornings.
Back to accountability (my mind is really scattered right now, I have some itchy insect bites that are not helping matters, AND my son is playing his favorite music [alternative rock] right next to me) I'm CONSIDERING committing to writing every day, and including what I ate, and my activity level. (Ok, got some Benadryl itch stuff, which should help.) What I will NEVER include in my food logs, though, are my one fish oil capsule per day (20 calories) and my one Viactiv calcium (also 20 calories). So any calorie counts are 40 calories low, and I DON'T CARE!
Calories burned: 3149 (will probably be 3300 by day's end)
Calories consumed: 1263 (this is way lower than normal -- I'm usually right around 2000 per day)
What I ate:
Breakfast: Protein & water
Snack: 2 oz wheatgrass
Protein & water
Lunch: My yummy burrito (from Costco -- perfect in every way!)
1 cup blackberries
Snack: 1 tablespoon Better n Peanut Butter
Dinner: 1/2 of a twice-baked potato (made w/broccoli, cheddar cheese, & milk)
Snack: 1 cup Fiber One cereal
1 cup Vanilla Soy Milk
As per the bodybugg website, my macro ratios (are you asleep yet?) are as follows:
Hmmmm ... I don't know if I want to enter what I eat on the Apex website (although that's really easy to do) and THEN type it here. But if it helps to keep me on track.
Oh, other than the fish oil and the Viactiv, there's one more thing I ate today that I'm not posting. I found 4 Sweet Tarts in my car (they were still in the wrapper) and I ate them all. And Apex doesn't seem to have Sweet Tarts listed in their foods. What a rebel I am -- they were delicious!
