Day 17

Today I ate 1,222 calories, burnt 765, making my balance at 1,543. YAY! a better day! I went for a long walk, up those hills, danced around the house while i cleaned. I always burn a bit more on launrdy day cux im carring all those loads of clothes up and downt he stairs. The only thing is, I didnt have much of a breakfast. An apple...thats it. BUT I went and got some prenatal vitamins and whey protien powder ( I carried my basket instead of pushing one at the store). Every little bit helps. So that should help my breakfasts be a little more complete, along with a yogart and my 5g sugar granola. Im feelin good!

Day 16

Today I ate 1,155 calories, burnt 227, making my balance at 1,072. I remember my first few days feeling very hallow. I notice I dont feel that anymore. My body now feels normal eating so little. I say "little" but really its more like what I should be eating, just better and smaller portions. I ate a much better breakfast today; 1 egg inside 1/2 pita bread, and activia light yogart. It was a perfect breakfast. Also, usually I go way over on my sugars for the day, and today I was 11 grams under where I was supposed to be. Went for a quick walk with the dog...I feel like today was a good day. A day that I should model the rest of my days after.

Day 15

Today I ate 1,370 calories, burnt 128, making my balance at 758. Even though my numbers are mostly ok, Im really not feeling like im doing any of this right. My breakfasts are almost nothing, I eat too much for dinner, and I dont excersize. Im not seeing a change. On some days I feel a change but I still havn't changed a bit based on the fit of my "goal jeans". They still fit just as tight. I'm not far as I know.

Day 14

Today I ate 1,814 calories, burnt 214, making my balance 400. So not so good today. I went for a little walk but for dinner I ate out, chinese with all the yummy gooie stuff and stuffed myself! I probably ate a whole days worth of calories just for dinner. Better tomorrow!!!!


Today I ate 1,109 calories, burnt 128, making my balance at 1,019. Yikes, thats a very high balance! Not a bad day.

Day 12

Today I ate 1,348 calories, burnt 143, making my balance at 795. Its Sunday which means the weekends over and I start over tomorrow. No, I didnt eat a lot of calories but I didnt eat well either. No breakfast again, and pizza for dinner. Its all good, its the weekend:)

Day 11

Today I at 1,254 calories, burnt 128, making my balance at 874. Whats great now, is my stomach has shrunk so its not as hard to eat so little. I wasnt even watching it today. I still want to get some low cal protien shakes to have in the morning. Im not good at breakfast.

Day 10

Today (well actually yesterday, im entering this a day late) I ate 1,718 calories, burnt 339, making my balance at 621. Food wise, not so great. Plus I probably ate a lot more. Sometimes when you go out to eat, you cant always know what calories your eating. BUT I did excersize! I went for a long walk with my dog and took those hills again. I went out on a date with my husband, put on a cute outfit and really felt a diffrence in my body! I dont always see it, but it really makes me want to keep going when I feel a change even sometimes. Go me!!

Day 9

Today I ate 1,450 calories, burnt 281, making my balance at 831. My number might be low but I did not do very good. I ate way too little he first half of the day and then munched after dinner. I went to a little gettogether and had way too much chocolate. I had only had about 350 calories before dinner and then I was thinking,"Oh im good to go cuz I had hardly anything"...and then got carried away. Then on top of that, I didnt have the water I should. Ive been so good about water, but not today. I have to get back on track tomorrow or else Im gonna crash and not be able to get back to were I was.

Day 8

Today I ate 790 calories, burnt 128, making my balance at 1,338. This was NOT a normal day and I didnt try to eat that little. I was working a lot and I only got a couple of snacks in, then my husband brought me home a small dinner. Thery were well balanced snacks though, not just crackers. I still got in a little bit of grains, protien, veggies, fruit, and dairy, then had sushi for dinner. Didnt do any excersize again..just took my dog for a small walk and it pays a little to live on the second story. I heard some great advice today...I need to be drinking protien shakes especually in the morning. So im going to be picking some of those up.
I weighed myself today. I was 134. But didnt weigh myself when I started.

Day 7

Today I ate 1,175 calories, burnt 112 making my balance at 937. So basically I just snacked all day until dinner. But didnt do any excersize again...I have no excuses..just didnt do it. Feeling a bit blah today.

Day 6

Today I ate 1,385 calories and burnt 214, making my balance at 829. I honestly have no idea how many calories I ate today because my dinner could have had anywhere from 500 to 1000. There is no way I could really know. So I settled for a 680 calorie dinner. On the other hand, I got off my butt and did some excersize! So, not a bad day.

Something very important I learned today...

Number Of Calories Burned Doing Crunches

Why you are searching for the answer of how many calories do you burn when doing crunches? Do you care how much calories you are burning while doing abdominal exercises?

You have to stop worry about how many calories you burn and to worry how many calories you take. Why? Because your burn no more than 50 calories when doing crunches. You can do crunches for 30 minutes and you will burn calories equal to a glass of fruit juice.

The only benefit of crunches is that they make your abs harder and bigger and if you burn the fat over your abdominal muscles you can see you six pack abs. Every person has 6 pack abs. But not everybody can see them, because they lie under the fat.

Day 5

Today I ate 1,612 calories and burnt 214 making my balance at 602. So I didnt do THAT bad today but I look back and see the small things that I totally could have done without...and Its the small things that just kill your day! I had a very large dinner with an elaborate dessert, and I ate the 300 cal. taco! I didnt need the taco...the chicken salad was huge enough! Without that little taco(it was good by the way), I would have been well under 1,500 calories and my balance would have been 900! It was totally not worth it...anyways, on a good note, I had a ton of energy around lunch and begged my husband to go for a walk with he did and I jogged around him in circles part of the way...and then up those big hills again. I just love those! So I did ok on excersize but would still like to fit in a little more. All in all, a good day but with one dumb move.

Day 4

Today I ate 1,701 and burnt 61 making my balance 360. So, I didnt do as well today. I ate fine all day until after dinner, I had dessert...bad girl. Plus no excersize besides getting out of bed, having a normal day and up the stairs a few times. Im so much more on board with food than I am with excersize. I did better the first couple of days and went walking up hills near my house. But this is always what happens...Im all excited for a couple days and then forget what I'm doing. Is getting off my butt the only way to do it?? I hear thats the case these days. I'll try to do better this next week.
But really, I should have already lost a pound already. My balance total so far over the past 4 days is 3,229, but I started my diet a couple of days before I started counting calories. Does that count?

Day 3

Today I ate a total of 1,312 calories and burnt about 122. Making my balance today at 810. I didnt really do any excersize but I figure walking up and down my stairs several times throughout the day should count. Before dinner I felt like air because by then, I had only eaten about 420 calories. But I wasnt even that hungry! I've noticed over the past couple of days that by eating low calorie small portians of food, I stay full by drinking the water that Im supposed to drink throughout the day (8 8oz glasses). Who would have thought?! So today at dinner I had no guilt eating a new york steak and potatoes. All I did was take half the amount of each that I normally would have taken, and more salad than normal. Plus I had no guilt eating a peanut butter cookie for dessert. Then after I snacked on the peanut m&ms I noticed I was getting a little carried away again. See thats the thing, when I dont keep track, I dont notice the little things that I get carried away on that add up so fast. This seems to be working for me. I hope I can keep it up.

Day 2

Today I ate a total of 927 calories and burnt 238. Making my balance 1,311(from 2000). So I know this is totally not healthy. I think Im just excited about it all and trying way too hard. Im sure after about a week i'll mellow out. At this rate, Id lose about a pound every 2 1/2 days. Thats not the goal though.

Day 1

Yesterday I started counting calories with Its so easy and fun! So im going to try blogging about my results. Yesterday i ate a total of 1,524 calories with 272 calories burned. My balance for the day was 748 (from 2,000). As i add up my balances from each day, a total of 3,500 calories should equal one pound lost. Im doing good today too! I have never drank so much water, and been so good about what i eat. They really make it easy.
So whats my goal? Just to look sexy for Mexico in a month. Lets see how i do.
