I feel sick...

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticonToday I followed through on writing down everything I ate. Honestly, I thought I had a decent day. BUT...the numbers say something different. I ate 2335 calories today. I didn't even have any chocolate! emoticon Where was my problem...well...if I subtracted:

the cashews (163 calories) ,

The potato chips (reduced fat) (304 calories),

the pretzels (110 calories) and

the two oatmeal muffins (173 calories)....

I would have been in the top range of the proper calories. Wow...I even ate an orange today too... emoticon

BUT...I learned something today...everything counts and calories add up fast so make good choices.

I do plan on being in my calorie range tomorrow! Wish me luck! emoticon

    Yes, all those little things add up quickly. Just chalk it up as a day of "lessons learned" and keep moving forward! You're doing great overall Christie!!

    I am always amazed at how fast those calories add up. It's such a learning experience and don't beat yourself up when you go over. It's not easy!! Pretty soon you will be able to know exactly how many calories you are taking in!

    You can do it! Those BLT'S (bites, licks, tastes) all add up... knowing is key to our success! My round 19 goal is to Track:-D
