1/2 a days worth of calories or an entire day's worth of fat!

Ouch...that's more than half of my calorie intake recommendations for a single day!

Another way to look at it, that's an hour and 20 minute run for me to work just that ONE drink off. UGH!

I need to look! Its a double chocolate chip frappucino with peppermint syrup, so it's probably higher than i thought. I forgot to look up the syrup. What I wouldn't give for one right now, lol.

Here's what I've been doing for work. The night before I take a gallon ziploc...and fill it with healthy stuff (I need to watch my sugar/carbs). That way I have stuff at work for lunch that's healthy and leftovers for the way home (which is when I tend to be starving!) I packed one tonight with string cheese (lowfat mozarella) for some protein, natural almonds (just a few), a hard boiled egg (minus the yolk if your cholesterol is high), yoplait light smoothie (made with splenda) , baby carrots, cutup sweet peppers, granny smith applesauce (don't forget the spoon!) and a dt. A & W rootbeer (no caffeine)...can't totally quit the pop yet...and I also made some homemade (that way I control what's in it) bean soup to take to work with me.

Lean Cuisines, I also like, but they have a LOT of CARBS...I love the pizza one and the pastas...but some of them have 50 carbs in them! Stay away from the pizza, rice/pasta ones and they are much lower.

A lady I go to water aerobics class with also told me it was a good idea to eat some protein before carbs...

I told her I was also adding wheat germ or ground flax to light smoothies...she said that was a great idea!

I had a lean cuisine meal today for lunch. Some herb chicken and vegetables. It was really good, I was surprised. I love string cheese and hard boiled eggs, what a great idea.

Yeah, they aren't bad. The pasta ones are really good and the roasted veggie pizza...but unfortunately, some are really high carbs.

Carbs aren't really that bad for you unless you are trying to lean down the last portion. Eaten in moderation, carbs are just fine. In fact, about 7 years ago, I lost 30 pounds on a low fat/low cal/pasta diet. No red meat, just good carbs.

When it comes down to it, calories in vs. calories out are what counts. You obviously want those calories divided up between protein/carbs and fat in the right proportions, but carbs are really not so bad.

If you really have a thng for a low carb diet, then they do have low carb lean cuisines and low carb Smart ones (I love those, too).

How many carbs are too many when you have high glucose?
How many should a "meal" be?

Well, for a healthy person...carbs should be 45%-65% of calories from carbs (Complex carbohydrates are ideal). Protein should be 10%-35% of total calories, and fat should be limited to 20% to 35%. The fats should come from healthier sources such as nuts and olive, canola and nut oils. This is of your total calories in a single day.

I'm so excited...I had a GREAT break through run this morning!

I really hate running on the treadmill, but I use it for short faster runs in order to increase speed. It helps me to gauge speed/distance better. So, I did two of those short, fast runs this last week...one on Thursday and one on Saturday. It mad a WORLD of difference in getting back out on the pavement!

I love those kind of morning workouts...makes me feel like I can conquer the world! Leaves me on cloud 9 all day!

Ugh. I need to start eating more during the day.

I just ate my weight in chicken and broccoli. Now, both were cooked healthy, so I don't feel too bad. But I got home and I was starving. Even if I'm eating good food, I want to get away from these stuff-your-face meals.

And my mom bought me ice cream bars with only 100 calories. Those will be a lifesaver and will hold me on sweets.

Wow, and now I realize why I stopped doing the FitDay journal deal. It is frustrating, not being able to find your food. But it is a useful tool.

I didn't know how many calories were burned when running.

You can add whatever food to your fitday journal.
Just put the nutrition info from the back of whatever you eat onto "name your own" food.

You can be specific. It's easy!

P.S. Try sugar-free lifesaver popsicles!
