I am so all over the place these days! Yesterday started out well. Okay, it wasn't great cuz the first thing I put in my mouth was a Reese's PB Cup that was sitting out. BUT I counted the calories for it (100!) and then had an egg, 1 biscuit and 1 turkey sausage.
I got home and ate half a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. And then things went haywire.
My husband and I have spent the last 2 days painting and painting and painting. When we moved into our house I had a Tuscan themed paint scheme in mind... butter yellow and brick red. What I got was Ronald McDonald ketchup and mustard. But my husband and his brothers/friends had stayed up all night painting, so I felt like I was stuck with it.
Well, for Christmas Josh gave me new paint as part of my gift. We went and picked out the butter yellow I had originally wanted and have been painting ever since. It's taken a while because we're working around the kiddos.
ANYWAY, when I'm painting and dealing with the kids I started to snack... crackers and cheese and then carrot cake. And once I start snacking and don't know the caloric content, it seems I tumble quickly down the overeating mountain.
Today is a new day, and I'm going to be conscious of what I eat. We are done painting. I'm going to drink more water and eat healthy and in moderation.
Sherah- if you google "recipe calorie counter" there are tons of websites where you put in all the ingredients of a meal and how many it serves and it tells you how many calories are in one serving. TheDailyPlate.com also is a great resource as far as finding out how many calories are in things. My problem is that if I'm not by the computer, I'm out of luck because I have no idea how many calories are in different foods.
