Before I do the calorie breakdown of yesterdays food intake, I want to brag on Kathy and I. Yesterday was a test day and we passed with flying colors. See I loooooove pizza. We live just down the street from a little pizza place with the beeeeest pizza eeeeeeevvvveeerrr! It just so happened that yesterday was customer appreciation day, and they were selling a large 1 topping for 3.99!! We both love the italian sausage pizzas there, so we decided to get one. First hurdle cleared, we only got ONE!! The next issue we faced was that the calorie count. I researched and found that in general, it is safet to estimate 340 calories per slice of pizza. Now, I had budgeted my bank to account for enough calories for 3 pieces but couldn't have realisitically done it for four. Kathy had done the same. Each pizza has 8 slices in it, so there was clearly going to be an issue of two extra pieces left over. I worried that one of us would either finish them both or we each would cave in and split them and go over our calorie limit. I am proud to report those two pieces are in the refrigerator in a tupperware container either for Kathy's lunch today or for the dogs delight this evening, depending on how the day shapes up. So to summarize my rambling, we achieved a great victory that I was dreading from day 1 and now have that to build on in the future!!!
Okay on to day 4's summary:
two eggs over easy 140 calories
Healthy Choice entree 340 calories
summer salad of onion,tomato and
jalapeno with two tablespoons italian
dressing 200 calories (probably less but to be safe)
three slices of pizza 1020 calories
2 bananas 100 calories
Total of 1900 calories for the day.
as mentioned, I got 10 minutes on the recumbent bike, added a wal mart lap at lunch to make it 5 laps and 25 mintues.
Thank you God for another successful day.
Here are me and Kathy after I got my associates degree last year.
