Day 13

Day 13 is over, today has not been the best of days as far as food goes and thats only in my head as I did stay under the 1500 calories per day mark, I feel like I cheated because I had a big dinner at Mom in laws house, 815 of my calories today came from dinner alone. I did zero exercise but its only around 9:20 pm right now so maybe I will get a little in before bed. I am craving something bad for the first time tonight since I started this whole thing, namely chocolate cake lol. I think it is because of the dinner out tonight, usually dinner at Mom in laws includes a nice piece of something sweet at the end of dinner. I ate an apple to try and curb the want for something sweet but nuh uh not happening lol. in fact I am posting this early for the day only because I felt like it would help to post it up and get it out there and maybe it would help me remember that I gotsta do this! anyways onto the menu for today, dinner was so good!


12:00 PM
1/2 cup refried beans (3 tacos) 90
3 small mission white tortollas 165
1oz cheddar cheese 110
2 oz tomato 10
1oz lettuce 5
2 tbsp LaVictoria red taco sauce 10

3:45 PM
1 english muffin 100
1 pat butter 35
less than 2 oz tomato 10

6:45 PM
8oz lean tenderloin roast pork 400
3/4 cup cooked white rice 150
3oz Broccoli 35
small green salad 60
3 tbsp lite cesar dressing 135
1 pat butter 35

9:00 PM
1 apple 70

Grand total is 1420 Calories for the day, as long as I don't eat anything else before bed , which should not be a problem as I don't like to eat late, maybe a glass of crystal light. I think it may be a good thing that I actually feel guilty for eating such a thick meal, means I am thinking about what I am doing, even though I did come in under the allowed 1500 cals. maybe I will ride the bike twice tomorrow because of the no exercise today. as always I thank you for taking the time to read this meager blog.

As Ever


  1. Boy, that dinner at your in laws does sound really good! About the chocolate cake: Go get some of those Weight Watcher cakes. The chocolate ones are 80 calories a piece. They are really good - just really small. And, because there's only 6 in a package, I will only eat one at a time, because I don't want to run out of them!
    Anyway, it IS good you feel a little guilty! Even though you shouldn't, since you stayed under your limit! It's hard to limit yourself when you're eating with a bunch of other people, because they are all having more than you are supposed to have. I dread our next family meal with my parents or my will be hard to resist all the desserts and all of the junk food that usually goes with family get togethers (namely cheese dip and yeast rolls!). Plus, it will be hard to count calories, since someone else will be making the food, and I won't know what went into the stuff exactly.
    Well, good job for yesterday! I didn't exercise as much as I was supposed to either. I've got to make up for that this week!

  2. Good job yesterday! I was thinking of you at dinner time. You held you own, and for that you should be proud. Keep up the good work. I am totally fascinated by this calorie shifting/cycling. I have been reading about it all morning.
    When you start riding, let me know. I will get on, after I dust off, my bike!
