Sheldon and I almost got into a fight over irish oats. He told me they had 150 calories per 1/4 cup and I was in disbelief and didn't believe him. He was frustrated because he did what I asked him to do. However, I didn't believe him because I didn't think he did it right. I didn't believe him because I was flabbergasted at how many extra calories that added to my energy bars that I made. The version in Prevention magazine only came to 77 calories per bar....based on 18. Mine after that and other additions came to 185 calories per bar...based on 16. So a bit of a difference. But they sure tasted good.
As I "boasted" on FB this morning...I walked 11.5 times around the Statesboro mall this morning. Yeah....now don't get too excited. :) Each time was only 700 steps. So I figure total this morning with going to the store and such I came to a total of 8000 steps. Then later I put on my pedometer and this evening after going for a short walk with Sheldon & Abby I am now at an additional 6400 steps. I am feeling pretty good.
For breakfast I had a Jimmy Dean Lite breakfast sandwich. It satisfied my "fast food" breakfast craving. Not too healthy of a lunch but okay as I wasn't too hungry. Then I made english muffin bread. That turned out nice. Even Abby was excited. Before putting her down for a nap I showed it to her as it was rising and she said...yum. The first thing she asked for after her nap was bread....she probably ate about a sixth of a piece.
Then for dinner I made chicken stirfry with red peppers/carrots/celery and 2 cups of brown rice. I only had a 4 oz chicken breast so Sheldon and I shared that.
Here is my daily food journal. If you notice I had an extra snack last night after putting up my journal. So, yesterday was the "bad" day. Today, the "good" day. :)
