Daily Calorie Counting Accountability (#5!)
 
Welcome all,

Use this thread to log your calories and keep yourself accountable to yourself and other CCers!

K9Owner 03-17-2012 07:48 AM

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:

summerlove 03-17-2012 09:26 AM

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.

loose seal 03-17-2012 11:22 AM

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.

Blarrrrrrrrrggg.

Hello Ladies,

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 know, right? I've never, ever, ever been able to do a 'real' pushup. Tried it last night - and I was tired, it was late but I really wanted to see if I could do it - and I did 5. Went down pretty far too, not just 'wimpy armed' ones. Feels great, doesn't it? :carrot:

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 thereís 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.

Nadya 03-17-2012 09:08 PM

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... @[email protected]

rlb1987 03-17-2012 09:42 PM

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...

Breakfast: 395
Lunch: 1020 :o
Supper: 420
Total: 1835

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... :(

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
Spices
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.

K9Owner 03-19-2012 08:40 AM

Sunday turned out to be a very HIGH spike day for me.
Totally unplanned and completely CARB LOADED!

I have much work to do this week!! :dizzy:

Queen Sarah 03-19-2012 09:55 AM

Last five days, I've logged calorie deficits of:

873
70
508
765
487

...and my weight has gone down. Yay!

I'm not really restricting my food -- if I want to eat, I eat. But I'm letting the Fitbit tell me if I've earned those calories. If I haven't earned them, I have to put in some steps. On a typical day, I'm eating around 2,000 calories, and I'm walking the equivalent of about 9 miles.

If I don't have time for walking, I can walk/jog in place on the mini-trampoline while working at the computer. Some days I have been tired and haven't wanted to do this, but that feeling often goes away once I get started.

I'm going to conquer these last 10 lbs!:carrot:

summerlove 03-19-2012 11:00 AM

I made a Protein Shake with the egg white powder and 3 cups of water. I used the pudding mix and dried milk, banana, vanilla, spices and Splenda for breakfast. I also had an orange.

I experimented today and made a Black bean soup with tomatoes and bean sprouts. Not that great but tolerable, I have to work on the spices. I divided the bean soup in half and will eat the rest of the fruit and a bowl of soup for and dinner. I feel stuffed and satisfied.

Nadya 03-19-2012 11:18 PM

My Fitday entry for today might be rounded up, I'm feeling anxious so I can't really tell but I'm sitting at ~1275 and I walked/jogged 3 miles which supposedly burned just over 300 calories. That brings my total calories burned to around 2000 but that seems wrong to me somehow. My numbers are so fudged right now, it's hard to tell. =/

Bummer too bad you had to waste calories on water! My heart goes out to ya! :hug: We have R.O. water and I never have to worry about that. Water is all I drink, for now.

Queen Sarah 03-20-2012 09:18 AM

Yesterday I was stuck in the library most of the day, with heavy rain outside. It was frustrating not to get much walking in, because all day I could see the Fitbit taking calories out of my allowance. I knew I would have to walk to earn back some calories so I could eat! So I walked in the library with what little time I had. I'm sure I made people wonder why I was walking up and down the rows of books.

Then on the way home from class, I knew I had almost enough calories left for a burrito, and could walk off the rest on the mini-trampoline. So I stopped at Taco Bell. The lady at the drive-thru window accidentally dropped my change, and I had to get out of the car to grab it. To make up for it, she gave me an apple pie, in addition to my order! AAUUUGHHH!

Of course, I had to eat the apple pie.

I was 500 calories over my goal, and had to jog in place until midnight to work it off. But I made it (at about 11:50!)

Thanks a lot, lady at the Taco Bell window!:mad:

My "goal," as I have it set on Fitbit, is a 500-calorie deficit every day. I get to eat more, depending on how active I am, but yesterday was tough, with all the sitting. Today will be tough, too.

Calories 1,185.99, Carb. 176.19, Fat 20.61, Prot. 76.89

Breakfast:

1/4 c. Oatmeal, raw
8 Strawberries, frozen
1 Orange
16 grapes
Spices
1/4 tsp. Vanilla

Lunch and Dinner:

8.20 oz. Salmon
11.95 oz. Carrots (5)
2.90 oz. Parsnip (1)
6.65 oz. Zucchini (1)
4 Celery Stalks, cut into sticks
1 Banana
2 Oranges
1 Lemon

I made the Oatmeal with 2 cups of water and spices, strawberries sliced small and put the vanilla and Splenda in off the heat. It tasted very good but looked weird because the strawberries lost their color and got mushy. I ate 1 orange and the grapes.

For Lunch yet to come Iíll eat half of the poached salmon, 1/4 of the lemon, banana, orange and 1/2 of the vegetables. Same for Dinner only I get just an orange.

I'll used the other half of the lemon juice to put into my water today with a bit of Splenda. So far so good, I have a lot of steamed veggies to eat so Iím sure Iím going to make it.

The dog is eating whatís left over and boy heís happy he's a veg eater from way back. He'll even eat a raw carrot, he holds it between his paws and eats like it was a bone, it's pretty funny. I steam extra veggies for him to keep him healthy and his weight down. The Vet encourages it and says she feeds her dogs veggies everyday.

Have A Good Day,

Jen

QueenS -- good to see you again and thank God that applie pie wasn't alamode! :eek:

------------

I've been doing pretty well cal-wise, keeping it lower on some days and a bit higher on others. I'm still using MFP but more as a guide than an absolute.

Hey walkers/runners, do you workout to BPM(beats per minute)? I put together a play list in my iTunes library and was frustrated that it doesn't automatically plug in the BPM for songs. Cripes, it's 2012 get with it iTunes! Anyway I found a website where you can listen to your song(s) in your library and you tap any key on your keyboard (for like 15 -20 seconds or so) and it will give you an average BPM and you can then go into your library and plug that number in. That way if you want a higher intensity workout you can make play lists with higher BPMs, or lower for less intense or mix it up. Here's the link, let me know if anyone needs any help with it or iTunes. A bit time consuming (but you can just watch tv or something while your doing it) but well worth it if BPM helps you while walking/running.

http://www.all8.com/tools/bpm.htm

Here's the home site . . . pretty good.

http://lifehacker.com/5646941/how-to...nning-playlist

I also found this site and that already has the BPM plugged in to play lists that they've made. I happened to have nearly all of the songs on one of the playlists they put together so I made a new playlist for myself and plugged in the numbers that they gave me.

Wow, this is great! I remember years ago, I tried to create something like this on a cassette tape, using my metronome and my music collection (classical and popular). It was very time-consuming, but I did get a tape put together with a warm-up, fast walking tempo, and cool-down. I think I made several tapes, actually.

But it was frustrating, because it took so much time, and then I got tired of always listening to these piecs.

I would've loved something like this back then.

Nowadays, I listen to music, but I don't just listen for the beat. Sometimes the words, or a soaring guitar solo, or interesting harmonies, or big crescendos will be what gets me going. I don't step in time to the music when I walk or run, but I really do run faster with music. It's more about psychology than beats, for me.

I had a minor outpatient surgical procedure today, so I couldn't eat until 6:00 tonight! I was starving by that time, but due to the anesthesia I was a little nauseated. I still managed to eat some spinach dip and a slice of pizza, for a total of 614 calories for the day. That will do wonders for my calorie deficit, haha. =P

Nadya 03-21-2012 01:34 AM

I think I've had less than 1000 calories today. I'm having kind of a rough time and as my mood goes down, so does my calorie intake I guess.

Queen Sarah 03-21-2012 07:18 AM

nadya and rlb, I hope you are able to eat a healthy amount soon! Eating too little is as bad as eating too much, if it goes on very long!

I've started the week strong. Here are my calorie deficits:
Monday: 523

I'm going for 500 a day -- that should equal a pound a week. Ten weeks ought to do it!

So yesterday ended up at more like 1700 cals . . was hungry just all day. I hate that, ended up eating about 200 cals worth of pretzels last night.

Today I did 3.1 miles on the tm in 39 minutes (mostly running, just some walking). The BPM helps me a lot, especially in the beginning . . . keeps me on track.

Was starving by 7:30am this morning but didn't bother eating because I've been doing that and am just as hungry by 9:00am. I feel like a bottomless pit lately.

This is another experimental day for me. I’m getting all of my carbohydrates from fruits and vegetables today. The egg whites, cheese and chicken have 0 carbs. I’ll see how I feel by the end of the day. I have been sticking to my eating plan and have lost 1.40 pounds since my last weigh in.

As for the nuts, I put them all in one little dish and eat them in-between the 3 meals to pass the time. I see how long I can savor a single pumpkin seed my longest time is 30 minutes. It's like chewing gum it gives your mouth something to do besides eating, it works for me.

Have a Good Day to All and Stay Focused and in Control,

Jen

UPDATE: 3/22/12
