Home. It is a new month. I'll start tracking again. Tomorrow.
The three year old next to me on the plane lectured me about the cheezies I had for lunch. Agreed it was a big bag but it was only one serving inside the bag. What she saw, and chose to ignore, were the carrots, celery, peanut butter, apples, cheese, peanuts and grapes I had before having the Baked Cheetos. And the water with which I washed down my lunch. I thought, given I was on a plane, I did very well (I had picked up two snack packs from Walmart the day before for a total of $5 and was thrilled because it meant I could fly with them.)
Things are tough when three year old strangers lecture you on your food choices. And my reaction was interesting. When I got home, I had two handfuls of jelly beans.
So tomorrow I'll weigh myself and start over. It will be interesting to see how my weight did.
I kept up fairly well with motion and didn't snack much so it might actually be down. I added dry roasted peanuts to my diet and have been eating handful after handful for 7 days now, yet the container is still half full (I just weighed it.) That averages out to just over 1 oz per day. I could tell I wasn't eating too many because it was a clear jar so I could estimate my consumption. For the calorie count, the payoff in satiation is huge. I actually googled the nutrition on dry roasted peanuts since the jar seemed to be too low in calories or too high in protein but the label was correct.
On the other hand, my milk consumption was almost nil while gone (I hate UHT milk). I probably had 16 oz over the week when you count the amount in my tea plus two days with the bare minimum on my muesli. Without milk, that saves me 220 calories a day. I also didn't have yogurt for half the time so that cuts another 100 calories a day for those days. On the other hand, I did have at least one oz of cheese a day.
