So clearly this is not an original thought WIAW was originated from Peas and Crayons and a lot of other bloggers have started doing it as well; and since I can’t be original and I really like the idea of doing this… I decided to give it whirl as well. This will pretty much be a mish-mash of stuff, some days I will try a new technique or perhaps I’ll be eating something for the first time as is the case today… and someday it might be leftover chili…who knows, and I guess that’s part of the fun. When I first started blogging it was to remain accountable with my exercise and food intake, so this is kind of takes me back… Very little of this is planned… but it’s 100% honest…I always want WIAW to be an accurate account of what I am eating. Not everyday I eat completely healthy, but more often than not I make healthy choices.
As always my Weight Watchers Points into the fold.
First of all I was starving, but you have to pick and choice from the evil that is on the hospital food list for patients, so just like if I was at home I ate light. Banana, some yogurt (that I only had a few spoonful’s of, a few sips of coffee almost a whole biscuit. This while she-bang was 5 points (it was probably more, but you can really find hospital biscuit on the Weight Watchers database)
Dinner feet for a kid Chicken tenders with mac and cheese with a little spinach to make it grown up. I didn’t eat the bread or drink the milk.. I don’t eat anything that’s banana flavored (but I do eat bananas…. and no it’s no weird and grape juice is gross) My dinner was 12 points.
My general caloric intake is 1200 calories per day, and today I consumed 1,275 calories; And to be honest this is just an estimate; it could have been more it could have been less, it’s hard to tell when you aren’t cooking and preparing your own food (not to mention not know exactly how much you are consuming). And I ate 29 Points out of the 33 that are allotted to me,
I know that it’s but unusual for someone to be in the hospital, counting points and calories, heck that should be the one time when you really don’t care, but it’s second nature for me to do it… even when I’m feeling my absolute worst.
The rule of thumb is that you are supposed to drink at least 8 and today I was able to get 8 cups, but with it being colder outside and me try to ramp of the workouts I should be getting more water in.. but I already feel like I’m constantly going to the bathroom as it is.
Until Next Time…
