Hello… here I am with my food diary, calorie counting and recording my physical activities.
Today… I did good, although I binged on chicken… I ate too much!
Let’s see how the day went:
Breakfast: Total = 341 calories
- 1 egg w/sauteed broccoli, mushrooms, green bell peppers and zucchini
- slice of queso panela (cheese)
Lunch: Total: About 700 calories.
- Chicken, chicken and more chicken!
… For some reason I just felt HUNGRY FOR MEAT! I wanted, craved, needed meat! Very weird (and very carnivore I guess) I roasted a whole chicken and had all the dark meat … 2 drum sticks and 2 thighs… they were pretty big … I just removed the skin.
I’ve been drinking lots of water… I think I’ve had 5 or 6 full big glasses so far and that’s all I am eating for the day… so that adds up to about 1041 calories… I might just add a coffee tonight (about 30 calories due to the sugar free creamer) but I will not have my sugar free chocolate pudding… I still feel stuffed!
About my exercise… I went to the pool and spent there about 1.5 hours. I made a point to NEVER stop moving… My arms and legs DEFINITELY FEEL IT right now… I was moving like I was crazy… kicking, moving my arms and even doing torso twists in the water to tone my waistline, some rowing squats and more kicking and moving my arms… I don’t think there was a moment that I just “stood there”
So… I would say that’s about 490 calories burned considering it was a “4 METS” activity and assuming I am still 180.0 pounds. (making very conservative calculations)
So… there you go… that’s about my day today… Looking forward to tomorrow and when I get those protein cravings I slow down a little bit before eating so much!
