Day 7: Food, Fitness, & Faith

Day 7 fell on the Sabbath and my parents were in town.  We got up, walked over there (the short way), and had what passes as breakfast at my mom’s house: store bought sweet rolls.  Checked the calorie count and ate just one (220 calories).  Also had a banana and a cup of coffee. 

 

Took a long walk with my mom just before lunch, slower than I’d have liked, but still we were out and about. Lunch was a turkey bacon, cheddar, and toast sandwich (total calories: 350).

 

Snack at church was a glass of artificially sweetened lemonade (0 calorie), a handful of popcorn (55 calories), and a devilled egg (approximately 65, which is pleasantly low). 

 

Dinner after a long day of walking around doing hospitality (putting out snacks, cleaning tables, sweeping floors, washing, drying, and putting away dishes, etc) and waiting for kids to finish filming their program was pizza & salad & more 0-cal lemonade.  I ate two full pieces of pizza (380 calories) and a small salad (50 calories) and a mini cupcake (80 calories) and a mini brownie (100 calories).  (Most calorie amounts approximated from Calorie King.)

 

I felt like I’d indulged a bit, but looking at the numbers I am very cheered.  So actually, all in all, not a bad day at all.

I am a wife, mother, all around volunteer, and organizer of all that is around me. No, really, it is pathological, I can't help it. If you need help, you ask me, I help. I have a few chronic illnesses that try their hardest to slow me down, but my brain is the Energizer Bunny of brains and it demands that I try to do everything and try new things and keep going all the time. So here I am, blogging about it all.
