What I Ate This Week
I start counting calories! Yup! I always said counting calories was time consuming and a waste of time. I was wrong; it is time consuming because I measure and weigh everything but it is not a waste of time. My goals are to stay under 1500 kcals. Eventually I hope to master 1000 a day without feeling hungry AF .
Also Each grand total is not entirely accurate. I probably might have drank something and forgot or ate a gummy worm and didn’t log it. Also I high balled the take out food. Also Some foods that are grouped together as a Meal were spaced out. It was just easier to calculate grouped together. But all the days grand totals are accurate.
Be forewarned the pictures in this post are lacking.

You may ask do I plan to keep counting calories? Yes I do. I realized that I did more reading of what was in my food because I was making and effort to read the nutrition facts.
Next Week I will work on some greener plates, I plan to replace each meal with a salad!
