Sunday after the Rum Cake

Its Sunday and a thunderstorm has me hiding inside the house so I figured it was time to post for the day, Saturdays intake was good with one exception, Rum cake... My calories were roughly around 1000 after breakfast, lunch and dinner because of saving up or the cake. I have no clue how many calories were in that slice of heavenliness and I do not care, its my birthday and I will have rum cake if I want to! no wait thats not how the song goes.. well I still don't care! I have it once per year and I ain't passing it up! otherwise the day was fine I rode the bike and did some push ups and even got a little time in fishing. Saturday was a decent day all around.

Like I stated earlier my intake was a little off because of the cake, for all I know I did not go over calories at all because I honestly don't know how many calories are in it, but I am pretty sure I went over because of the size of the piece I had. Lunch was pretty much nonexistent with some watermelon and dinner was awesomeness on the end of a fork, we had Salmon fillets with cut green beans and a rice pilaf, with the rum cake for dessert. I send about 1/3 of the cake home with my father as he is where I got the addiction from he was happy to oblige and there is still a piece left large enough for my wife and I to have a small piece each after dinner tomorrow, and I have not decided whether I will in fact have that second piece 2 days later or not, I think I already know the answer but I will pretend that I need to make a decision. Rum cake IS my weakness!

Here is a look at my menu from Saturday.

06/28/08 Breakfast
10:30 AM
12 ritz crackers 168
2 wedges laughing cow 70

3/4 cup rice pilaf 165

big piece of rum cake ???

Grand total? not real sure, I know it was not as bad as it could have been because I did eat light all day as well as I slept in so breakfast was late. I may to offset the cake have 1400 calories per day this entire week, I have not made that decision yet but there is a good chance that I do it. Thanks for following along with me and my weight loss journey, come back same bat time same bat channel tomorrow for a new post.
