Trying to eat enough calories…

These are the calories that I consumed the day before we left for Maine. I wrote of my struggles with traveling and diets on The Incredible Shrinking Ladies. And I do struggle with that. In fact, yesterday I had a small bagel and cream cheese for breakfast. We went out to a local diner type place for lunch and I got an excellent Cajun Chicken Cobb Salad (full of veggies!) for lunch. Then the family got fresh lobsters and clams for dinner. I’m not a fan of the lobster and only the clam if it’s heavily breaded and deep fried – so, they got me three crab cakes and I ate two of them. Maryland is really the place to go for crab cakes! So, overall that probably wasn’t too bad a day for calories, but I’m at the mercy of those feeding me.

Today, the Emperor and I went out for breakfast. I had a two egg omelet with sausage and cheddar, homefries and rye toast. I definitely could have made some better choices for breakfast – but I didn’t. Once I finish up the work that I brought with me to do – I think we’re heading in to Portland and we’ll be having both lunch and dinner there.

Week 2, Day 2

Breakfast – Kashi – 200 calories
Mozzarella cheese stick – 80 calories
Lunch – Chicken Fajita – 230 calories
Mozzarella cheese stick – 80 calories
Dinner – JC Meatloaf w/veggies – 300 calories
Rita’s Italian Ice – Raspberry with real raspberries! (does that count for fruit?) – 160 calories

Total calories – 1050 – I know this is tooooo low and will only hurt me in the long run.

I got weighed this morning and I’m down 8lbs. from when I started a little over a week ago. I’m sure it’s mostly water-weight, but it’s gone.

I have been reminded by John of Total Transformation Test that I don’t eat enough calories or enough fruits and veggies. I’ve struggled with the fruits and veggies most of my life. But, since I gave up cooking – it’s become even more difficult. I just don’t like fruit – never have. I don’t even like fruit-flavored candy. I will enjoy a fruity Italian Ice, but that’s about it. As for the calorie intake, I think if I plan out my weekly menu – as I’m supposed to be doing – that will help me get the correct amount of calories. I’ve added that task to my to-do list – so, it will get done.

We’re going to Maine next week to visit the Emperors family. Most of them still live in Maine. Eating will be a challenge as we’ll be at the mercy of the relatives. In addition to that – I’ve never met any of these relatives and I’m a nervous wreck. But I will persevere and be just fine.

Rehoboth Beach Weight Gain

Not too surprising to me that I gained two pounds at Rehoboth Beach. I kept my portions in control, but I think the quality of food was lacking. I could have made some better choices (potato pancakes were probably not the best choice), but overall, I’m not surprised or beating myself up over this.

I didn’t track my calories, I wasn’t on the computer, and I didn’t get to the gym. But, we did a good bit of walking and had a great time – and that was the point of the trip.

I ended up having the bagel with a little bit of cream cheese for breakfast on the ride down. We went to a local pizza place on the boardwalk – Grotto Pizza – for lunch. Where I had one slice of Sicilian and a tossed salad with low cal Italian dressing. Dinner we went to the upscale little restaurant – Cafe Zeus – which was across the street from our hotel. There I had a yummy cocktail – “Vicky Dees Ruby Slippers” – which was some concoction that contained pineapple and cranberry juices. I have no idea what type of alcohol was in it – but it was there. Then I had a glass of Pino Nior with dinner. My entree was crabcakes – they were almost 100% crab! – and saffron rice. Now, here’s the bad part – a slice of there award-winning Cappuccino Mocha Cheesecake for dessert. Fabulous!

The next morning is where the potato pancakes made an appearance at Sammy’s Kitchen. Lunch, the Emperor and I split a 10″ onion and black olive pizza from Louies Pizza. Dinner was a quick stop at Jimmy Johns of West Chester Pa. – not my favorite, but I thought I needed to experience it.

All in all – not too bad.

Going to Rehoboth Beach

We’re spending two days at Rehoboth Beach Delaware. We’re planning on leaving tomorrow morning at 6AM and staying over night at the Brighton Suites in Rehoboth. We’re taking my daughter and her best friend. I’m not sure how this is going to fit into my new healthy eating, but it should prove to be a good test for me to be out in the “real world” and still make healthful choices.

As I sit here I’m trying to decide if a Sausage McMuffin from McDonald’s or a bagel with cream cheese would be a better choice. Neither of them are great choices – but both are easy choices for roadfood.

The Sausage McMuffin is 370 calories without the egg (I never get the egg anyway). A bagel and light cream cheese – approximately 400 calories. Not much difference between the two. I could pack a cup of my usual cereal and some fruit. That’s probably what I’ll do.

I expect that we will eat out for lunch. I can get a salad with some chicken or shrimp. Dinner will be out as well. Fresh fish is always good at the beach.

It will all be fine.
