Nothing Intentional

My Thoughts:
So I haven't started officially counting calories just yet but judging by my approximation, I consumed roughly 2270 calories today. Granted, we often underestimate how many calories are in something by 10-15% so adding that 15%, I'd be at 2,610 for today. Geesh! That's extremely high. No wonder I'm so FAT!

Every calculator I've played with online says to maintain my weight, I need to consume roughly 2,700 calories each day. Clearly, that's not hard to do. Sad thing is, I'm actually still hungry. Grr! But anyway, increasing exercise by 30-45 minutes per day and restricting my calories to 2,000 I should lose roughly 2-3 lbs per week. That would be GREAT!!!!Although, taking my PCOS into consideration, it'll probably be more like 1.5-2 lbs per week but honestly, I'll take any loss... as long as the numbers keep going down, all will be good!


  1. Seems like you ate too much in the morning and not enough in the evening. If you dropped the morning donut, you could have chicken in the evening with dinner or something like that. :)

  2. Oh I totally agree. That was a "on the way to church" moment of weakness. lol. But yah, I am gonna try to avoid those things like the plague from now on... 490 calories in a doughnut?!?! Oy-vey!
