Day 287-289



This weekend was so so on eating. I either eat nothing or everything. Last night we to the movies and I did have some popcorn. Changes I did make compared to the old me was I got a water instead of soda and added nothing to the popcorn. I am not big on it being soaked in butter but I always had them add just a little. Not anymore.

Today was an off day and I am not sure why. My breakfast was coffee. 50 whole calories. Lunch came in at 480. Snacks at 410. That left me with 490-840 for dinner. I made homemade chili with turkey. No clue really how to figure out the calories on that but I am sure that I ended fine.



I did go back to the Sparkpeople page and edit my goals to include the weight I wanted to be at and by what time( I had joined this site about 4 months ago but never used it). Anyways when I went & changed that and my workout goals it upped my calories to 1430-1780 a day. Guess we will see how that goes with the scale. I am finding it a little nicer not to have to worry about staying under 1550. We are always eating out or doing stuff and trying to stay at 1550 was getting interesting. I haven't hit 1780 but knowing it is there if need be is nice. I will give this a month to see what happens. If the scale doesn't move then I will drop calories myself back to 1550.



Tonight I went to Zumba and burned 525 calories. This weekend we are house sitting and I will be next door to my best friend who also walks her dog 3 times a day so I will be going with her!! Hopefully it will be warm. I am dying to jump on the trampoline.



Pictures are from vacation. I am still editing them. Boy can you waste an entire day sitting on your butt doing this.. So not good.

You are doing well with the calories...I give myself 1 600 per day and went over once, last friday...otherwise keeping in...although it says I should have 1 800..can u imagine I cant lose on 1 600 how will I do that on 1 800.
Good that you going to do a lit of walking this weekend...will make you burn calories.
Am ready for you this Thursday....lets see what that scale gives me...x

I always give myself some wiggle room on the calories. With my Android cell phone it is so easy to track my calories, scan the barcode and go. Before that I was using Spark people. I love Zumba so much, such a great work out!

I'm at 1500-1700 calories a day so that gives me some space in what I eat. Think it's wise of you to do the same.

About the homemade chili. What I do is weigh everything before I use it and write it down. R. eats about the same amount of food as I do so I can divide the amount by 2. I also have my scale on the dinner table so I can weigh my potatoes for example.

A good walk is always so refreshing to me. In fact, I miss the dog we were dog-sitting because it forced me to do something I enjoyed (how strange to write that). The trampolene sounds fun too. My kids have a trampolene, but I have always been skepticle of jumping on it because of my weight.
