- workout: 45 minutes indoor cycling class
- active minutes: 30 minute walk to dinner
+ dinner: dinner at Bareburger: one drink (Strawberry Fields), split an order of rings/fries, one burger in a lettuce wrap (no bun)

MFP numbers:
Intake: 2,161 food (I had to estimate most of dinner, but I think I came close)
Output: 1,486 exercise (reminder I think MFP overestimates this part)
Total: 525 cals remaining

Analysis:
I used a vacation day to take off from work today, so I hit up a few of my favorite ‘I can never go to them normally, because they’re during the weekday when I’m at work’ classes. I absolutely FAILED at getting enough veggies/fruits into the diet today; will try and do better tomorrow. I actually wrote down that I was having carrots and spinach/kale dip with lunch, I put it in MFP and everything, then I wasn’t still hungry at that time or something, as I just forgot to actually eat it! Dinner with a friend after my third workout of the day = proud of my actual dinner choice, could have gone without the alcohol and the appetizers, but it all still fit in my cals for the day. (Dinner alone was almost 1,200 of my cals today.)

Tomorrow is a new day!

Thursday 9/18

Intake/activity:
- 20 minute walk to work
+ breakfast: oatmeal
+ am snack: 1/2 Kind bar, 1/2 serving of edamame
- 40 minutes walking/running errands during lunch
+ lunch: 2 servings broccoli, 1.5 servings turkey meatballs, 1 serving brown rice
+ pm snack: 1/2 Kind bar, 1/2 serving of edamame
- 60 minute walk to Bikram
- workout: Bikram 90 minutes
+ post Bikram drink: electrolytes in my water
+ dinner: bagel with butter. one serving cheese. one serving mixed berries. 1/2 serving toffee chocolate almonds.

MFP numbers:
Intake: 1,744 food
Activity: 812 exercise
Total: 268 remaining
(reminder: I believe MFP overestimates exercise, so I don’t eat back all my exercise calories)

Analysis:
I got in a fruit or veggie with four of five meals today, whoo! Pretty good on the calories. Once again a random dinner assortment, but I got in a carb, a protein and a fruit (and 1/2 a dessert :)) so it’s all good. Should have eaten a bit more during the day, so I didn’t have to get in so many calories at dinner in order to be good for the day. But overall: good day at work, good personal day, good food day.

Tomorrow is a new day!

Samoas flavored milk is a thing…

I gave most of my ‘before’ clothing away as it stopped fitting. This dress is one of the few items that I am still holding onto for some reason.

Portion controlling. 
I reuse the baggies, so no I don’t have 17 prepared at once. :)
1/4 cup is 12 chocolate almonds. 

They have 210 written right on them, so that every time I reach for one I have to look at how many cals I want to put in my body. 

But there’s still room for chocolate in life.

Wednesday 9/17

Intake/activity:
- 20 minute walk to work
+ breakfast: oatmeal
+ am snack: 1/2 Kind bar. 8oz Starbucks Vanilla coffee w/splash milk. 1/2 serving edamame.
- 30 minutes walking/running errands during lunch
+ lunch: 2 cups broccoli. 3 turkey meatballs. 1/2 cup brown rice.
- 40 minutes walking/running errands after lunch
+ pm snack: 1/2 Kind bar. 8oz Starbucks Vanilla coffee w/splash milk. 1/2 serving edamame.
- workout: 45 minute indoor cycling class
- 30 minutes walk home from indoor cycling class
+ dinner: bagel with butter. one serving fish. one serving edamame. one serving baby carrots.

MFP numbers:
intake: 1,709 calories food (estimate on the coffee and milk, everything else was weighed/measured is spot on)
activity: -929 exercise (I’m guessing it’s more like ~800)
total: 420 calories remaining

Analysis:If this was a regular day I would eat a little more, maybe another 200 cal or so, but I’m trying to ‘carry over’ this deficit to negate the overage from yesterday. :) And I just don’t think I burn as many calories by walking as you think I do, MFP. Dinner was a random assortment of foodstuff, but I wanted that carb, that protein and those veggies, so that’s what I had. Today was a good day.

Tomorrow is another day!
