Okay, so yesterday in my confession I talked about going to Cici's pizza. One of my favorite places. Also, a very dangerous place. My hubby and I got into a little arguement about me eating the two brownies that I had eaten. I tried to explain to him that I was not on a set diet, that I was in a lifestyle change. I can allow myself a treat every now and again. If not, I will go home and eat everything in site!
So, I have been keeping track with my calories on Livestrong.com. I know you have read me talking about this in earlier posts. I have been doing it consistantly for about a week now. I am really happy with it too. I decided to put in my four small pieces of pizza, the two small brownies I ate, and the 8oz regular Dr. Pepper (no refills) into my calorie counter to see how bad I did. I was so worried. But....when the final total for the day (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks) totaled up, I still had 14 calories I could eat. Take that hubby!! I told him that I have been doing really well during the day so that in case this happens, I will still be in my calorie count for the day. He said he was sorry and that he was happy. Laura=1 Husband=0.
I know it isn't just about the calories. There are other factors in it as well such as fat, sugar, sodium and a long list of things. I was under my count for everything as well excpet for the sugar. Most of the sugar came from my fruit earlier for snacks.
Confession: I bought a candy bar from a kid today at school. I had a craving and he was there. I did put it in my calorie counter and I still was under my sugar count for the day.
Cheer: Even though I don't weigh in officially until Sunday...I have lost 1 pound so far this week. My goal is 2 pounds, so hopefully if I keep working at it I will reach that 2. If not, I will just be happy with a loss!!
