Yesterday was bad...but not as bad as I thought

So, I ate WAY TOO MUCH yesterday.  I know that Aunt Flow will be here tonight, but really, that's NO EXCUSE for my indiscretion.

7am: slice of ham                                                30cal
8am: 1/2 raisin bagel                                          160cal
        plain cream cheese                                       75cal
         cream of wheat                                           90cal
10am: beef stick                                                  60cal
          Sargento reduced fat cheese stick                 60cal
12pm: 4 baked chix wings  (4ozmeat)                    120cal  
          collard greens                                           free
          chipotle hashbrown casserole                      280cal (est)
1-4pm: assorted candies (6pcs)                             180cal
           3 peanut butter cookies                             510cal (est)  
6:30: two turkey burgers                                       560cal
         kale/onion/tomato/garlic/peppers                   free
10pm: 1/2 skinny cow ice cream                              75cal
Total calories for day:                                            2200 (?)

Okay, now that i do the math, it's really not as bad as I thought. Of course, the original total was WAY higher because I had to google reeses pnut butter cookies for an estimated calorie count--and the first website said that there were over 1700 calories per cookie. I about had a heart attack! When I checked another site, I saw that it was actually like 170 calories per cookie. WHEW!        

I'm doing okay so far today. Although, I did an epic FAIL for breakfast. 

Recently, I have realized that I sometimes like the taste of coffee--but I am not a coffee drinker. So the other week, I bought a jar of Maxwell House instant coffee to use to make shakes with so that it tastes like one of those fancy schmancy coffee drinks. This morning, I thought, instead of doing the shake, I'll do an iced mocha drink. And as soon as I dumped the Unjury into the coffee, I realized I had made a grave error. Unjury clumps in liquids over 140 degrees--and my mock coffee was well over that. So, my iced coffee was kind of gross. But now I know to mix the Unjury with the soy milk and then temper in the coffee. Lesson learned. 

I have been on plan (sort of) today, barring the coffee mishap. Will update tomorrow once I have finished my calorie consumption for the afternoon.

  1. I'm not a big coffee drinker either, but I'm a sucker for those sugary Starbucks drinks. I LOVE the Click Vanilla Latte protein powder (you can get it for $20 from Amazon). They have a mocha flavor as well. I toss it in the blender with 10 ice cubes, chocolate PB2, 1 cup milk, 1/2 cup water, and one packet of Stevia. It's like a giant frapuccino, but with only 265 calories and 27 grams protein. It's fantastic!

    Try to keep up the food tracking! I know it can be frustrating, but I've found it invaluable for helping me learn what serving sizes are supposed to look like, and sometimes helping me in making the better meal choices.
