Day 29 – Gah!

Posted by Georgina

Almost got tripped up again today – I really am bad at estimating how many calories are in pastry – thought tonight’s dinner would be fairly low calorie (the cheese triangles are small and fairly light) and ended up doing some extra pedalling on the exercise bike just so I could get a cup of hot chocolate tonight!

Meal Food | Drink Calories
Breakfast Tesco BREAKFAST CEREAL Rice Snaps 76
Milk 3.7% fat 61
Cup of Tea 49
Fruit Bowl BARS School, Blackcurrant, Apple, & Pear 72
Total 258

I had a pretty lunch for the first time ever, so took a photograph!

It’s a cheese and potato omelette – and it tasted as good as it looks!

Meal Food | Drink Calories
Lunch POTATOES Boiled, Average 94
EGGS Whole, Raw 168
Cheese cheddar 60
OIL Olive, Average 86
Salad 18
Tesco DRESSING French 22
Hellmann’s MAYONNAISE 72
Total 520

Having mayo as well was a bit cheeky, but I do like it with omelette.

No biscuits left in the house, so that was easy.

Meal Food | Drink Calories
Dinner Cheese Triangle 520
Tomato and Onion Sauce 22
POTATOES New, Baby, Average 83
Carrots raw 12
BEANS Runner, Average 6
Total 643

520 calories just on the Cheese Triangles (puff pastry with a cheese filling)… *sigh*. I’ll just have one next time.

Meal Food | Drink Calories
Late Hot Chocolate 119
Total 119

Almost finished the jar of “normal” hot chocolate. Have a jar of Cadbury’s Options once this has all gone which should give me more wriggle room.

Meal Food | Drink Calories
Exercise Exercise Bike (warm up 5 mins) -55
Strength Training (20 mins) -133
Exercise Bike – extra to balance the totals -60
Total -248

Exercise went a bit wrong today, not only did I have to do extra but for various reasons I couldn’t exercise in the morning and I’ve discovered it’s really tricky to fit it in during the afternoon (not too close to a meal, and still fit it in before school pick up time).

Final scores:

Meal Food | Drink Calories
Breakfast Cereal, cup of tea and a fruit snack bar 258
Lunch Cheese and potato omelette with salad 520
Afternoon Tea Cup of Tea 49
Dinner Cheese triangles with tomato and onion sauce, new potatoes and veg 643
Late Hot chocolate 119
Exercise Strength training, warm up and extra bike -248
Total 1,341
