Regardless it applies to me.
I did well eating today. (Insert the choir of angels singing hallelujah!)
I had a turkey cranberry wrap (Garlic & Herb tortilla, cranberry spread, lowfat cream cheese, lettuce and turkey) for 320 cals for lunch with a handful of Lays chips. I didn't count them but I am going to estimate high just in case and say 2 servings worth which would be 260 cals. Total for lunch was 580 cals.
For dinner I made a homemade smoothie with frozen peaches, a fresh banana and some milk. I estimated that at 440 cals and then because I needed something with a bit more substance I had a sandwich thin with Garlic & Herb Laughing Cow cheese and several slices of Mesquite Deli Turkey which added up to about 185 calories and for dessert I had a 90 calorie Fiber One brownie.
I ended the day at 1446 calories consumed. If I go by the Zumba calorie calculator that estimates by weight, intensity and duration of exercise, I burned approximately 1012 calories just doing Zumba. I did not estimate the calories burned walking and sprinting all over the market because, well, I just count that as every day chores.
So now I sit here and I feel like I should be enjoying the quiet while my children are sleeping and there is nothing to do but whatever I want to do. In reality though my eyelids feel like there are mini ship anchors attached to them and my entire body ACHES. My pillow is calling in a soft whisper, 'come sleep. Commmeee sleeeeepppp. You know you want to.'
But I'm going to sit here for 5 more minutes and try to enjoy the peace and quiet and my me time before I do what I actually want to do and go to bed.
