Checking in

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:

Breakfast:
2 servings protein powder (one in the middle of the night!)
fish oil capsule
Viactiv

Snack:
1 cup broccoli
1 cup carrots

Lunch:
my yummy burrito
fresh salsa

Snack:
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.

Anyone that keeps a blog has to know the time investment it takes, and anyone that doesn't needs to be reminded!

I'm grateful that you take the time. The opportunity to read helps me reflect on my own experiences. Thanks

2000 calorie deficit in one day? That's gotta hurt. Be nice to your body...
