Pizza and Candy

So I did pretty good with calories today but not so much healthy though.  I meant to have leftovers for lunch but instead ended up eating leftover pizza crusts and 2 slices of frozen pizza.  Grrr.  Luckily it kept me full enough for the afternoon. Breakfast was my usual egg, ham sandwich.  Today on a whole wheat bagel. Blueberries for morning snack.

I had an awesome dinner!  I made a chicken parmesan baked in the oven with homemade chunky italian sauce for about 400 calories!  Yea! It was so delicious!  I'd love to share the recipe with you now but I'm going on vacation in 2 days so I won't be posting it for awhile.  I have some things scheduled to post on my recipe blog during my vacation but not this meal.  Check it out though, I just posted some awesome Grilled Island chicken!

I also ate a fun size butterfinger for dessert. I haven't had chocolate in awhile and it was good!  (of course, duh!)  We were at the dollar tree and the kids wanted candy. I wanted to get the Reese's Peanut Butter cup 8 pk, but they were 80 calories a piece.  The butterfinger 8 pk. were almost half that.  So, the butterfingers won.  I wanted one. 

So I came in probably just under 1500 calories for the day.  It might have been less, I had to estimate on the pizza but I think I estimated pretty high.


  1. You are doing great Debbi! I did see your vote on the "paternity" test on my blog- you just voted after I had written the results post and before it got posted! Ha ha! I will add your name to the list of winners! lol

    I had a terrible dieting day. Well, I guess not so terrible, but I went over my calories. I had eaten EXACTLY my limit... but at 4:45pm... I was starving for dinner at 4pm and only held out until 430, even though I had a yogurt and water, I was just dying, and I was all out of salad, so there was no "filler" with my main dish. It so sucked! I feel all down and ashamed about it, which I never feel, but I just feel so gross right now... over 2007-2008 I went from a size 18 to a 10... and all through 2009 I juggled the same 10 pounds... and now I am up just over 15 from my "regular" low weight (or 18 from my lowest ever). This 10 pound range is really significant for me- it pushes me up over the overweight/obese line and just look "heavy" instead of a little chubby.

    I'm worried I"m going to gain it all back. :(

    You stick with it, you are helping me so much by posting every day! I so appreciate you putting it all out there like this!

  2. Thanks for stopping by and for the encouragment! It's always appreciated!

    I would rather estimate higher calorie counts than lower. Cheers to that! Keep up the great work!
