Tracy's question regarding not logging fish oil or Viactiv ("What's the resistance about?") was a good one. And after doing some thinking (the resistance has to do with wanting to live in a fantasy world of food, where calories you don't want to eat, but eat for health, don't count, and where you get credited negative calories for all tempting foods you resist), I decided to enter both.
So I ended yesterday with a 2012 calorie deficit, taking in 1416, and burning 3428. Not surprisingly, I woke up in the middle of the night absolutely starving. Protein powder and water to the rescue, and I was back to sleep.
I really don't know if I want to write daily. Up till now, my weblog strategy has been this: I write if I have something to say and I have the time to say it. Which accounts for why some days I write 3 times, and then it's 3 days till my next update (which averages once a day, really!). But for today, yeah I'm writing.
Here's today's food log thusfar:
2 servings protein powder (one in the middle of the night!)
fish oil capsule
1 cup broccoli
1 cup carrots
my yummy burrito
PowerBar Protein Plus
2 oz wheatgrass juice
1 oz raisins
For dinner it's Baked Ziti. We're eating late (9:00 pm) tonight because Tim's golfing, and Austin has gymnastics till 8:30. The dinner strategy will be all about portion control, cuz I can tell that even though this is a new recipe, it's gonna be yummy!
Today's exercise was fun -- it was an hour-long hill walk with Colette! Great company, great weather, and a killer walk -- lots to love about that.
