Morning Meanderings…. What NOT To Eat, ooh and Book Winners!
Good morning and Happy Tuesday!
About a year ago my cousin told me about My Fitness Pal. It is a free on line site where you can plug in “all about you” and then daily, type in what you have eaten and drank, and calculates it for you. It’s actually pretty cool when I use it. It even tracks exercise and then gives you more calories to eat (woo hoo!) when you work out.
I have dabbled with this site off and on the last year and just recently trying to do it daily. And of course, I have a story.
Last week I had a crazy busy day (shocked, I know…) and after working out and living life at the end of the day I still had around 500 calories yet to use. I was reading around 9 pm and was craving chocolate. The only chocolate in the house was some Ghiradelli chocolate chips I had recently used in banana bread (oh yeah… that is awesome!). There was not many left, maybe a cup worth and I sat down with a cup of coffee and those chips. Mmmmmmm….
The next morning I thought I should plug those chocolate chips into my fitness pal for my previous days calculations. I was guessing it to be around 300 calories.
I blew it on chocolate chips. 😯
I will not be doing that again.
SO again, my plug for My Fitness Pal, holds. Sometimes it tells you things yo do not really want to know… but on the flip of that… it is good to know the damage one can do while “innocently” snacking.
Ok.. .on to funner (yes. my word) things.
Remember last weeks Library Sale? And I offered up for you to make a choice of what book to read for me and then I would go from there and read them and pass them to you? I chose one winner on Sunday and now here are the other two and the books you chose for me to read:
#92 Judith at Leeswammes’s Blog
#96: Barbara from Freedom Acres chose for me to read:
YAY to the winners, please email me your addresses to: firstname.lastname@example.org and once I read these books I will pass them on to you! 😀
Have a great day everyone… it is windy and gloomy here which is a bummer, but I am at work all day, the gym, and then a meeting tonight so I guess better today than a day I have off 😀
