hoops02's Journal, 24 April 2018

Day 5: A tough day at work had me thinking of - and reaching for - comfort food. I was able to set most of it down.

My carb intake was out the roof today, I know. A hair over 200. But I was still just under 2100 calories for the day, which seems low with what I ate. Over 1100 of those at supper alone. I may have even cheated up a little bit on reporting the portion sizes as I felt that the calorie totals seemed a little low. I wanted to be sure they’re all in there.

With my RDI of calories being around 2600 and up depending on who you ask for measured weight loss at my age/height/size/activity the calorie count seems solid.

I biked hard for 30-minutes this evening, about 6.5 miles. Not bad for an old man.

I’m amazed how easily I’ve avoided sweet tea, sodas, breads, and candy my first five days. Far easier than I thought it would be - so far - and probably why after 5-days my pants feel a little loose. I may weigh in sometime in the next day or two and see if I’ve dropped a couple of pounds. Keeping my fingers crossed.
