Day 1 of 7

I've started.

I'm not sure what I'm doing, other than limiting my deserts, snacking, and intake in general. And exercising. Every. Single. Day. It's going to be tough. Claire's last final is tomorrow, and I'm sure she'll want to celebrate. I have a school pot-luck on Wednesday. I have my big holiday concert this Thursday, and I'm sure the stress will start to get to me. Friday, I'll be driving 5 hours. That's always a recipe for eating whatever I want. Saturday, I'm going to a "cocktail party" (a sneaky way of getting men to attend a wedding shower). After that, I'll be at the in-laws' house until a few days after Christmas. I'm NOT going to let myself get fatter over this break.

To keep myself on track, here's a list of all the food I ate today:

2 pieces of toast with peanut butter and jelly on them
1 peanut butter and jelly sandwich
celery with peanut butter (about 1 tbsp)
1 small bag of frito lays (160 cal, 90 from fat, gross)
2 apples
1 sweet and salty nut almond and yogurt bar (I'm eating this right now. It's amazing!)

For dinner I will be having Spaghetti with hamburger and red sauce. We'll see how much I'll have. I'm not exactly sure how to measure it.

  1. You should get a spaghetti measurer! They are plastic with little holes cut in them. You take dry spaghetti and stand it up in the hole. However much spaghetti you fit in the whole is a serving or two or whatever (they are labeled). That way you can cook the right amount which means that when you put it on your plate, you can't go back for seconds cuz you only made enough for yourself (or you and Claire)
    Google spaghetti measurer and you'll get lots!
