Today I spent up at the supreme, but I tried to not be too bad.

I had a french vanilla coffee for breakfast.

I had a mozza burger(600) and rootbeer(320) for lunch.

For supper I had 2 chicken wraps(290) from Mc D's and a ice tea(160).

Didn't have much for snacks except a piece of gum. 

But not much excersize either.

Today was a little better.  I sure find it easier to eat right when I am home.

I had a banana and 4 plums for breakfast.

I had 2 wiener wraps for lunch and 2 pieces of toast with butter (150) with a root beer (150)

For supper was a hamburger/macaroni/tomato concoction I made up.  I have no idea on calories on it, but it sure was good.  Trying to stay away from the cheesy creamy dishes I love so much.

For snack I had a yogurt (170) and a mango pop (150 cal)

I made jam and did laundry today, so whatever that counts for exercise.

I guess this isn't a very accurate make sure I eat less than I wear off diet, but it sure makes me think on what I am eating.  Although I do have to try and find a site that maybe will let me find the calories on some things I don't know about, like fruit, and even other nonpackaged items.  Like my homemade canned tomatoes, how am I supposed to know how much is in them.

Weekend at Rodeo

Saturday,  I actually did some excersize.  I rode Razz in the creek for 2 hours.  I'm not sure how much work I really worked, but since it was 29C  it was so hot and I'm sure I sweated away a lot of water at least. 

I had a banana (?) and chocolate milk (160) for breakfast.

A turkey wrap (?) and mard bar (?) and water for lunch.

Then i got lost again cause we headed to the rodeo in Hanna and we stopped at Cactus corner for supper and I had a chicken buger and onion rings.
A coke (160) as a snack.  I keep thinking I need to start on diet or coke zero, but so far it isn't in the fridge, I did buy some, so I haven't started on it yet.

On Sunday i had a banana for breakfast with chocolate milk (160) I never realized that chocolate milk has more calories than coke!  That seems crazy!  I guess it has more nutrients as well.

For lunch/supper I had a seafood melt and fries with ice tea.  I dont know how to check for calories on a meal from a resteraunt, but I dont eat out that often, so I am not gonna work about it too much.

I also had a creamsoda float (170 + 130) later on. 

Again a day of no real exersize.  But hopefully that will change now the weekend is over.  Although I may not be home next week much either but I will try to get something in.

Fridays Meals

On Friday I started a litttle more careful about what I ate since I had way more calories than I thought of on Thursday.  I never had breakfast which I actually do quite a bit even though it is a habit I am trying to break.

For lunch I had 2 slices of turkey (40 cal) 2 slices raisen toast with butter (150 cal) and a glass of ice tea(35cal) and a slice of cheese.

For supper was kinda bad cause I went to my Mom's scrabpbooking evening and we had pizzas made on cresent rolls and French Vanilla coffe from Timmys and timbits and pringle snacks.  I have no idea on calories but probly a billion.

 I also didn't do much for excersize besides making a hundred trips carrying boxes in and out of my moms scrapbooking stuff.  Really got yo get back on the excersize track before I see a difference.

First Day

Well I am starting this blog mostly for my own use, I'm sure noone will want to read it, but I am using it as a way to keep track of what I eat and how much excersize I get.  I am looking to lose weight, but more importantly I am looking to get fitter.  I want to make it easier for me to do everything.  I also am hoping it will help me get less injuries and maybe it will make my shoulder and hip better and not hurt so much.

I am not on any specific diet, just thinking I need to eat less and exersize more.  I really like food so this is really hard.  And I really like creamy foods.  So I will try to eat less of the same foods I normally eat.  I am sure if I cut out all the stuff I like that is not healthy it will be a bad idea because I spend a lot of time at home so there is always food around and I know I would nibble all day long cause I am not filling my craving.

So I will start with today.  I weighed about 164 last time I weighed myself.  That was a few months ago but I don't think it has changed much and we don't have our own scale so I will have to go with that for now. 

Today I had 2 pieces of rasin toast(150 cal) with butter (70cal) for breakfast and half a glass of milk (100 cal). 

For lunch I had a induvidual pizza (400 cal) with 1/2 cup beef vegtable soup(110 cal) with  half can Dr. Pepper pop(142 cal).

For supper I had 2 chicken legs(?) and 1 cup rice(160 cal) with tomato soup (30 cal) on top.

For snacks I had a slurpee(?) and a mint aero chocolate bar (220 cal).

I am gonna try to keep track of calories as well but it won't be super acurate cause hard to guess when its all homemade food.  So far it seems like 1382 plus chicken legs and a slurpee.  Sure seems to add up fast since they say the average diet has 1200-1500 calories per day.  I expect I ussually used to eat closer to 200 per day cause my lifestyle is more active than average.  (although not enough)

For exersize I didn't do much today, just ther regular walking around.  I think I may have to get a pedometor so I can keep track of how many steps I take in an average day.
