Oh my goodness! :shock: I just had a MAJOR realization!

I had been reading through some of the other food logs here and remembered that I used to use FitDay to keep track of my calories and fat and stuff. I haven't used it in ages. Well, I just calculated my breakfast and lunch. HOLY CRAP! So far today I've had 1480 calories and 40 grams of fat! No wonder I am not losing weight! I've been eating healthier, but still is't not good! 1500 should be my max calories for the day. Sheesh!

I should really get back to using FitDay more often. What a wake up call!

That's why I use it to track when I'm trying to lose weight. Even though I eat healthy I still eat too much to actually lose weight if left to my own devices. Of course if one is able to get results without tracking all the more power to them. I just have more luck keeping track.

Maybe once you get a handle on how many cals, etc. are in things you typically eat you'll be able just to keep an estimate in your head?

It's a possibility. Who knows. I hadn't realized that the burritos I typically eat two of have 480 calories a piece! (Guacamole.....it's a weakness of mine.) I haven't logged into my FitDay account since 2005. I was surprised it was still active. *LOL* But now I have a better way to track and should get a handle on my issue with food now.

Hey folks! I have to tell you about the weirdest freaking dream I had last night! I dreamed they had a "Vegan Girls in Iron" bodybuilding competition for the chicks on the forum. And I decided I was going to compete! :lachmal: Me, in a bodybuilding competition? The idea is completely laughable! It was really funny, especially afterwards. No, I didn't win the competition. Marcina did actually! But afterward we all had a tofu fight. We were running around this parking lot somewhere throwing tofu at each other. It was so funny and totally weird!

Yesterday at work they sent out an e-mail looking for volunteers to help with Habitat for Humanity. I e-mailed the coordinator and volunteered. They'll e-mail everyone today and let us know which seven people from the office were picked to go. I really hope I get picked! There are about 300 people at my office and they're only taking 7 so my chances of getting picked are slim, but I am trying anyway. The chosen few will get a paid day off of work tomorrow and go help build a house! That would be so neat and so rewarding! So, I'll find out this afternoon if I get picked. Keep your fingers crossed!

Breakfast: Cream of Wheat hot cereal with a little sugar and Earth Balance, glass of soy milk
Lunch: 2 burritos with beans, rice, tomatoes, guacamole, salsa, and lettuce
Dinner:

Exercise:

Today was a gym day! I actually got up and made it there at 8:00AM! Hooray! :) It's not easy for me to get up. I love to sleep. I was rather proud of myself for actually taking the initiative and getting out of bed to get to the gym before work. I'm also going to log everything on FitDay again and see if that helps me to be more accountable. I'm ready to see the scale start moving in the right direction!

I also conquered another gym fear this morning. The Stairmaster. It stares at me, taunting me every time I go in there. I don't have the best knees due to 7 years of marching band, but I decided to give it a shot and see how I do. I didn't last very long (3 minutes, did 6 floors) but I at least tried it out. I am pleased with that. :) It was a leg day for me. My legs now feel like Jello. *LOL*

Pre-workout: 8 oz. of soy milk
Post workout: Cream of Wheat with 2 packets of Splenda, 1 small peach
Lunch: whole wheat pita will spinach, tomatoes, avocado, mushrooms, banana peppers, bean sprouts, and cucumber

My new FitDay buddy! :D Yeah, I love to eat too. It was a bit of a shock when I realized that yesterday's lunch was over 1000 calories. Sheesh!

My legs are still feeling like Jello from the gym this morning. I got up out of my chair at work after almost 2 hours and they wobbled! Hahahahaha! Just need to work them more. Thanks for the congrats on my getting up early though. :)

good grief! They are replacing our carpet at work......for the third time! I came in and had to pack up all my stuff from my desk so they can move the desks and replace the carpet overnight. How fun.

Oh my legs are SORE today after yesterday's workout! I hope they are feeling less sore tomorrow because I am going to the gym again in the morning.

Breakfast: banana protein shake, hot and sour soup
Lunch: portobello pasta, minestrone soup, bread
dinner: pancakes with maple syrup and banana slices

Exercise: I rested today.
