Yesterday wasn’t a very good eating day. I ate too much for lunch and then again at dinner. I put it into My Fitness Pal and I had about 2000 calories. This was also just my estimation based on the things I found that somewhat matched what I ate. Who knows, my estimation of calories could be way off. Why would I want to pick the highest caloric intake of a food item when I can lean on the lower side of the calorie scale??? It’s a slippery slope counting calories. I haven’t been keeping track of my calorie intake until today. I don’t think I want to see the numbers in all their glory. I would rather keep my blinders on and believe that the ¼ rack of BBQ Ribs and ¼ BBQ chicken with corn, beans and dinner roll don’t really have that many calories. But alas they do!! I’m sure if I a made it a habit to track my calories I would realize that the only way I’m going to be truly successful in losing weight is to eat fewer calories….which means not allowing others to talk me into going to a place called Hoggs. Yes, that is where I obtained the yummy ribs, chicken and so forth. *Insert big SIGH* I should have insisted we go somewhere with healthier alternatives. We did walk the mall after dinner which made me feel a little better about eating it. I can’t change it now, so let’s move on.
I did day 2 of the 5K in 100 days today. It wasn’t bad at all. I went about 2.3 miles in the 40 minutes of workout time today. The ball of my foot was a little sore afterwards, but I think my foot just needs to build up a little callus. It needs to get used to all this exercise. I plan to do day 3 on Sunday. I’m actually looking forward to it.
