1 Million Calories Challenge – Week 2

I made it through another week with some successes and some failures, but I continued to bank calories away as most days, I had some left over. I am hopeful that the week ahead will see me do even better, continue to focus on eating healthier, but also forgiving myself when I don’t as long…

Calories in Context – Eating Out

If we think about my 2700 calorie per day budget, and divide that up into around 600 calories for breakfast, 800 for lunch, and 300 for snacks, then that leaves me with 1000 for supper and as much as I know I should be cooking at home as often as possible, long days co-running a…

1 Million Calories Challenge – Week 1

This week wasn’t too bad.

Weight Loss Update: No Loss

Well… I tried my hardest, but this week, I didn’t have any loss at all. I am super frustrated by this development. I didn’t indulge, or eat more than the points allotted to me. I had a deficit most days of 10 or so points. I earned 10 activity points, and didn’t go into my…
