eating without planning = out of control calories

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

I love...no other word for it..I love PBJ's.. I could eat one every day for a week & be a happy girl.
So I made one today...& I measured to be sure what I did was what was said on the food tracker.
OMG..no..it can't be that many calories!! Well, fact is..if it is that many calories..then it will have to be worked into my "food budget". Some things cannot be given up. Cream in my morning coffee & my PBJ's are high on that list.

Does anyone use this ?? I just found it the other day..& thought it was interesting. I will admit to being stuck on the calories in...calories out way of thinking. If you burn it you earn it..right?
My neighbor offered me some of whatever the newest miracle pill is that TV is promoting.
Then said..by the way it made me tachycardic & my b/p shot thru the roof. & so she gives it to me.. OH hey...thanks friend! So I shook my lil empty head & said..No thanks don't think so!!

I've done this..yes I have. not good ..don't try it..I definitely do not recommend it!

tonites meal was thought out..& balanced with lots of veggies..some brown rice..a lil olive oil & baked chicken chunks..mmm mmm stir fry...love it. a nice crisp salad & I was doing good!

I still need to finish my nite out with some yoga...might dance with Mr T for a bit..

emoticon ...then

The downward dog is especially difficult as I have 3 lil doggies that are sure my face needs

a good licking..that my fingers need cleaning & that there is no reason for me to remain like

a statue for more than a few seconds..then it is kissie time again. oh yeah..got to do my

modified plank..my shoulders will not hold up for a full plank yet..but am gradually building to

that.. it is such a great exercise.

It uses so many muscles for so little (sic) effort.

Now off to tend to those things I must..

Nite ya'al..make it a good one!

    I love PB&J's, too! Yummy! I know what you mean about your dogs. Whenever I do any exercise on the floor my cat comes and wants to rub all over me or play. I liked the list of chores that were done :-)

    Love it. Downward Dog. I have two dogs inside. I have to shut them out of the room. My daguther's dog likes being under my feet while I'm doing zumba. I've started planking. Wow! It's harder than it looks.

    I was eating and reading your blog...which I totalley know better than to do....But My computer at work almost had SPLATTERS on it from the Burn 800 calories picture!!! Ha!! I totally agree with you....I want half and half......so I allow for it...That is my deal...and I really do measure the tablespoons and not eyeball it or GUESS!! That can happen with peanut butter too....Just measure it and work with it!! Almond butter raw would be even better........Try it!! Hugs!!

    Look for a high fiber, low cal bread. Dempster's just came out with one that is pretty good and here in Canada we can get "Lil Big Bread" by Silverhills that is 100 cal for 2 slices and good in fiber but not as good as the new Dempster's high fiber.

    Also consider just one slice. Maybe you already do that... but for me it was like "what do you mean only one slice of bread???? My very good friend only has one piece of bread any time she has toast or a sandwhich and I thought something was wrong with her, lol. I do love my coffee with pb and toast, so I had to make it a good fit for me. I've gotten used to it. In fact now I prefer having a cup of cottage cheese with 100 cal. container of key lime greek yogurt. NEVER thought that could happen. Knowing that a serving is one slice was like realizing a cup of rice or pasta was a serving. At first I felt deprived. Now I think "that is a normal amount" and I want to be normal. I am grateful for my "normal eating" friends for being able to be good examples to me. I could not have done it 10 years ago... but I'm getting there.

    emoticon Love the "how to burn 800 calories!"

    Fact is, we'll never burn as many calories through exercise as we can by restricting our intake.

    cute chore list

    Have you considered changing how you eat your pbj?
    I found a nice jelly, Polaner and while the pb needs work it is good fats, right?
