justcallmesteve's Journal, 23 February 2013

Well I have been sticking to the "soup for lunch" plan but have noticed that my overall calories for the day have been increasing. I started to increase my portion sizing subconsiouly and the net is that the weight loss has slowed almost to a stop. Lunch has been cod chowder which by the looks of it is too many calories. Most of the calories are estimates as I am using the information from the FS database and it may not represent what is actually in my prepared foods. I would still guess that these foods are better for me than what I was making or buying. This is the positive I am focusing on.

I have prepared my foods rather than going fast food. And I am learning. So if I want a fish chowder I will have to look for a recipe that uses less bacon and maybe not condensed milk to reduce some calories. I don't have to eliminate the chowder as it is a good way to get some healthy fish into my diet but I do have to find a way to knock a few more calories out of it. I will for this week go back to my root and spicy black bean soups. I really like those soups and they are much lighter in calories.

I started back to playing squash in the league this week. I was looking forward to the extra exercise to burn a few more calories. Unfortunately I sprained my wrist. It was still weak from the arm westling on vacation so I will have to wrap it while playing and rest it in between. Ah crap...lol. I was looking froward to going all out. I did notice the squash killed my legs and had to basically take Friday morning off the bike. My legs were tired and spongee so no sense pushing it as I think they needed the rest. I feel ok this morning and will hit the bike in a few.

Then its onto soup!!
