The Saturday Weigh-In: 6

Hello People!

Bad news friends, the “diet” has failed. Apparently I ate a surplus of 7,000 calories this week while I was sleep-walking.  That’s the only thing I can figure; oh, and that it is that time of the month.  I am so frustrated I could scream, cry, and pull my hair out!!! These are also symptoms of wonderful Mother Nature’s monthly visit. !@@$ her.

Side Note: On closer inspection after listing this, I can see where I may have underestimated caloric values.  For example: When eating out, it may be a good idea to over-estimate the calories by maybe 100 just to be safe such as: Fish Tacos listed in the Calorie King as being 480 calories for two, should be estimated as being worth more like 600 calories.  These small things can add up over a week of time.  While 80% of my food was home prepared, I did eat out much more this week due to visiting my parents on Spring Break.  This always makes things more complicated.  A very good reason to learn to cook; you can control calories better!
