So, I got myself a Fitbit to help chart my stats and stuff. I am new to apps like this, but I have found out that it works. It is a constant reminder that I am working towards a goal.
So, whenever the kids want KFC or Freddie’s, I look at my calories and say I will have a water! Since I purchased the scale last weekend, it shows that I am down four to five pounds. I watch my calories like a madwoman.
I try to keep breakfast at 450 or 500, lunch sets in around 360 to 450, and dinner I might eat something around 600 calories. I have fruit, low calorie snacks and lots of chicken. I have never really been a fan of fried chicken, so baked is okay for me.
I am a little concerned about this weekend. I want to BBQ on Saturday, but I don’t want to blow my hard work. Would a grilled burger be a deal breaker? Any thoughts? What are some low calorie foods that would go good for a BBQ?
On a side note– lesson learned- I never knew how many calories went into some of these drive thru eateries. We are talking 1000 to 2300 calories for a number 4 at KFC. The information is right there for everyone to see it, but I guess sometimes we see what we want to see. I don’t know if I will ever be able to justify to myself how 900 calories for one meal, is okay. Most of all, I can’t wait until my knee is one hundred percent better. So that’s the lesson learned for tonight.
