Calorie Log

So I haven’t posted in awhile so I have been falling off the wagon. This weekend has been the worst of it. Memorial day weekend! Ohh boy! BBQ’s galore plus an extra day off work to stuff my face. Anyway, I began a calorie log. I bought a nice leather back journal to which I write my calories on the front and and on the back of the page I write what I was thinking of when I eat something high in calories or how well I am doing or how my body feels. I also keep track of my daily weigh-ins to watch how my weight is affected by the foods I eat and whether I need to deduct salt, meat or sugars. Plus this weigh I can watch my average weight loss per week. So far, down pounds although this weekend could prove to be a stick in my mud!

A girlfriend of mine came over this evening and we had a homebaked pizza, wings, and beer…although the beer hit the backburner as this desert heat is making is crave water. I also-unfortunately- had a few cigarettes….went all week doing well! I haven’t recorded anything so far this weekend in to my journal and I am afraid too but hopefully this way I can show this to my doctor on our next visit so he can see how hard I am trying and maybe he’ll stop bitching at me to eat less.  I generally stay in the 1500-1800 calories range although there were a couple days where I hit close to 2500…AHH.

 

I am going to write more possibly tomorrow because right now I am too tired. I wanted to let the rest of the world know that I am still here, regardless of who is actually paying attention to my rants and raves!
