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. I tracked what I ate, and didn’t really alter my diet too much other than cutting back on the soda that I drink and things like chips, chocolate and ice cream… All the good things in life! Honestly though, I am excited about this challenge and documenting my experiences through…

Calories and BMR

One of the most common pieces of feedback I’ve received so far for my 1 Million Calories Challenge is that 2739 calories per day are too many! Maybe everyone is right. I’ve definitely done more restrictive diets previously to lose weight and was able to feel fine for long periods at far fewer calories than…

1 Million Calories Challenge

TL;DR – January 1st, I start a countdown giving myself 1,000,000 calories for all of 2019. My cousin decided to do a push-up challenge in 2018 in part to improve his health. He completed over 37,000 push-ups during the year. His dedication to a challenge that he set himself was really inspiring to me and…

Another Weight Loss Update

Tonight, I will be going to Weight Watchers with Annie and her sisters. I think I will be up, and probably a good three or four pounds. I took a week off from my weight loss journey this week, and while I didn’t track my weekend, I did track everything else, and I wasn’t really…

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…

Weight Watchers Update

Last night, Annie and I weighed in at Weight Watchers. After a horrible week of eating, I was still down 1.4 pounds, for a total weight loss since joining of 5.4 pounds in two weeks. If I can keep steady at a 1.5 pound loss per week, that would mean that I could lose 6…

Weight Watchers Day Seven Food

There wasn’t too much special that happened on Tuesday. It was weigh-in day ay Weight Watchers, but we will talk about that after the food log. I used 46 points and had 15 remaining. I did my walk and earned 4 activity points. My activity points from last week are now gone, and I never…

Weight Watchers Day Six Food

On Monday, Annie stayed home from work because she hurt her foot pretty bad. This meant that I was cooking for two. After making breakfast, Annie let me know that it should really be brunch and that other than a snack, she wouldn’t have anything more until supper. I ended up doing pretty much the…

Weight Watchers Day Five Food

Sunday was supposed to be an easy day, but with a Nascar race on, I was planning on going to visit with some of Annie’s family and watch it. This meant having chili for lunch, with bread, and there was lots of chips and dip around, but I didn’t have any. All of the chips…
