I ate a turkey sandwich ( 2 slices
of bread and deli turkey sliced thin from the Jewel deli.) I include a generous
helping of mayo. But I also brought 2 servings of frozen vegetables. The
veggies I heat up in the microwave at the office. 4 minutes on high after I
place them on a paper plate. Delicious.
Remember, I am substituting the veggies for potato chips or peanut butter
crackers, so I score big when I make this switch. I drank water and about an
hour before I went home for supper I had an apple. Normally, I trot downstairs
to the candy machine and have two (yes, two) candy bars. So the apple really
helps reduce the calories.
I also walked for about two miles today. I always estimate about 100 calories
per mile. It is actually lower than that, but it provides me with a nice round
number for calculation purposes. It was a beautiful walk. The temperature was
10 degrees above zero, fahrenheit. The windchill was below zero. Ice was
everywhere. The sound of it crunching under your feet. The different textures
ice gets when it freezes depending on if it is just standing water or it is
flowing. Everything looks different when it gets that cold. It is gorgeous.
There was no candy before supper tonight. Candy is in the house, but I just
said, no and got busy working. I fixed some chili for supper. Not sure what the
calorie content is, but I had a lot of crackers and two slices of buttered
bread. Drank milk with the meal and then had one small piece of candy.
Remember, if you do well at breakfast and lunch, then you don't feel quite so
bad when you have a little extra at dinner time.
Overall, I am going to rate this a good day on the calorie buster chart. I hope
you did just as well. Good luck tomorrow.
