Daily Calorie Counting Accountability (#5!)
Use this thread to log your calories and keep yourself accountable to yourself and other CCers!
Hope no one is offended that I started a new thread, but we were almost at max!
I have been sticking with it lately.
Just not eating the right things!
Still at maintenance cals 1600-1800/day
I have HAVE to put the :jeno: down.
The sodium from it is killing my fitness goals.
Still hovering at 145-147 :cry:
so yesterday i was at about 2200 calories - it was girls night and i went overboard. :(
today I also went overboard. I'm guessing about 3000 calories.
Back on the saddle tomorrow. Im not too sure what happened today, but it wasn't pretty.
Stuck to 1400 again yesterday.
Damn scale is still sitting at 157.
:mad: :mad: :mad:
Am going to try the 5 or 6 smaller meals throughout the day instead of the 3 meals, 1 snack I've been doing. I've done this before and don't really like doing it as I never really feel quite full BUT something has got to give here. This is bordering on the ridiculous.
Am off to do my C25K but am going to throw some higher paced intervals in there.
Perhaps I'm building muscle and losing fat but seriously, how much muscle can I possibly be building? On an up note, I can do 5 REAL pushups (on mah toes) and can absolutely feel how much stronger my arms are, all due to Supreme 90 Day workouts. Sweet.
Any goals I had set for the month/week/certain date are all out the window. I want the scale to move down a solid 2 lbs.
11:30am, b: coffee, greek yogurt - 200
1:00pm, l: leftover pasta, meatsauce, sauteed musrooms: 400
4:00pm, s: banana w/smear of p. butter - 150
d: homemade cheeseburger and homemade fries - 500
s: one small piece of homemade scone - 200
I'd like to join in I was hoping a new thread would start soon. I've been back on track since Feb. 14th and have lost 12 pounds and counting. I am an avid calorie counter and I count carbs, fats and proteins to the 10th. I feel like I have finally figured out how to get the job done.
Yesterday I ate 1,251.01 calories and I feel strong and feel I can eat a plant based diet and feel great! I do eat meat but not often and when I do it's usually fish or poultry. I need to work on my exercising which will be 17 exercise videos sitting on my shelf in my living room. (Denise Austin)
Thanks and Good Luck to All!
I hope no one enforces this 10th rule!
I'm so screwed if they do
:welcome3: to the Daily Thread!
Where's Sarah?? Missing you,gf!
How about a little accountability for the first time all week, eh?
Pre-Run Fuel: 1/2 wheat round, almond butter, granola: 275

Y Chromosome press ups ROCK!!
It took me 36 yrs to do ONE! Yes, it's kinda a BIG deal :rofl:
LOL, I figure I count my pennies; I might as well count my calories too. I admire your exercise regimen! Thanks for the Welcome.
If anyone is interested there’s a St. Patrick's Day Sale on at Spiegel catalog online everything on their sight is 50% off today. Tank tops are $2.50 I bought 12 in different colors and I bought a cute pencil skirt for $5.00 in my new size to be. If anyone is interested, they have plus sizes too.
My fitday entry for yesterday reads 1024 but I feel like I forgot something...that or I miscalculated my dinner so I just left it alone. :lol: It's so easy for me to track my calorie intake when my meals are prepackaged but when I gotta started estimating it all goes downhill from there...in any case, I ate:
1 Fiber One Oats & Chocolate bar
1 Jack Link's Jerky
2 Eggs Overeasy
~1 cup of Home Fries
2 slices of white bread toasted with butter (didn't count the butter, didn't know how much to guess...)
~1 pancake with syrup
That stuffed me though, I totally pigged out on that breakfast special served at 5:00pm... @.@
Thanks for starting a new thread!
I am not even gonna post the details of what I ate today because it was awful (ate out for all three meals) but I'll post my calorie totals...
Lunch: 1020 :o
Exercise: Turbo Jam Cardio Party 1 (45 min)
If it wasn't for that ginormous lunch, I would have done pretty good!
Thanks for thinking of me! I'm here -- just have been preoccupied lately. My 19-year-old cat has been giving me a scare. I honestly thought she'd have to be put to sleep last week. But the vet said there is no ONE thing that indicates that action-- just a lot of little things, and maybe we can fix some of them. So I've been trying a lot of different foods and medicine, and cleaning up a lot of poop off the floor. But guess what? She seems to be improving! It almost seems like a miracle that a cat that old could bounce back like that.
Anyway, that has taken a lot of my energy and attention.
I decided to make a push for that last 10 lbs. I lost about 35 since July, and have been holding steady at the top of my goal range (135). But I would really like to see the bottom of my goal range (125).
Lately I've been focusing on calories out, but it's time to look at calories in again.
I upgraded my Fitbit (although I got one that isn't working 100% right, so I need to go back and get it replaced) -- and they changed the way they display the information on the website. I set my settings for a 500 calorie deficit. As I go through the day, it tells me "you can still eat xx calories (out of yy)" -- it's based on my activity history. If I'm less active than usual, it starts subtracting from my allowance, and if I'm more active, it adds. This motivates me to step it up, even though I'm insanely busy right now, and don't have time for dedicated exercise.
So yesterday, for example, I ate 1879 calories, but I burned 2644 (That's about 8 miles of walking throughout the day. I've been motivated to achieve a certain number of steps each day, because you get "badges" for different levels. Silly, I know, but it works). At the beginning of the day, my allowance was 1481 calories, but by the end of the day, I had increased it to 2214 by all the walking I did.
I've been feeling like I "want to eat" lately, so I do need a higher allowance than 1400! I've even indulged in a Snickers bar (paid for by walking).
I'm lucky that part of the "insanely busy" is stuff that I can do while moving around. I have a mini-trampoline set up by the computer, so I can stand there and type. I'd love to have a treadmill desk!
Back to work... and I just heard a cat throwing up, so I have some carpet to clean... :(
11:30am, b: coffee, homemade pumpkin oatmeal, 1 baby bell cheese round - 350
2:00pm, l: 1 greek yogurt, 1 small slice home made scone (YUM!!!) - 350

Sunday, March 18, 2012
Calories consumed: Cal. 1,342.21, Carb. 211.85g, Fat 12g, Prot. 82.37g
10 Egg Whites, cooked with Pam
2 oz. Mozzarella Cheese, shredded, part skim
15.42 oz. Potatoes
28 oz. can Crushed tomatoes, no salt
1 Onion, diced
1 Bouillon cube, Knorr chicken
1 can Fruit Cocktail, Lite, Safeway brand
6.95 oz. Zucchini (1 medium)
I made soup out of 6 - 8 cups of boiling water then added the potatoes, crushed tomatoes, onion, bouillon cube and spices. It turned out great and only took 25 minutes to cook. It's raining today and is a good day to have soup it was like thick and chunky delicious tomato soup.
This morning I cooked a 10 egg white omelet with spices with 2 oz. of Mozzarella inside of it. I divided that in half and ate half for breakfast half for lunch. I opened up a can of Fruit Cocktail and put it in 3 small containers and will eat one each meal.
I'm pretty stuffed right now and I still have a serving of the fruit cocktail and a huge bowl of soup and the steamed zucchini left to eat.
Tomorrow is my weigh in day and I always have trouble on Sunday's eating too many calories I doubt if I will this week because I'm stuffed to the gills.
