    Sounds like a great haul. There is something goodly indulgent about buying healthy fresh stuff.

    yeah I planned my meals and figured out how many calories total i would consume which is 934/964 minus 152 calories for 50 minutes of walking 782/812.which I can live with now, if I can discipline myself enough to eat all 3 meals it will be good, otherwise, not so much. I'm debating adding a protein shake, but what it'll come down to is I probably won't.

    I might not do the calorie counting thing, because I consumed 1220 and only burned 153 I feel guilty about it. Because if I don't keep a scale and don't count calories I'm not like omg I've eaten too much. I think I'll just try to eat healthier. but when I weigh myself or count calories I guilt myself into not eating. if that makes sense.

    Yup. Better to chase health vs run away from guilt...

    Counting calories can be useful when you are first learning about food, since it can be hard to believe that 3 cups of mixed greens = 20 calories, but a handful of walnuts can be something like 400+ calories. But once you get the basic idea down, I find it to be more of a hindrance than a help to most.

    And actually, 1,220 calories isn't all that much. You burn a lot of calories simply be being alive, so you definitely burned more than 153 calories.

    I have decided to replace soda with the la croix sparkling water. because I realized what a crave about soda is the bubbles. and the peach-pear flavor is really good has zero calories no artificial sweetners (which I hate artificial sweetners) and no sugar and no carbs

    I ended up counting calories here's my justification. I really don't know how many calories are in things. the down side to it, is I feel guilty if I consume more than a 1000, like i might gain all this weight, which I know isn't rational. Which I'll make myself puke if I feel I've eaten too much in a day, but if I don't count calories and over shoot and don't feel like I've eaten too much I won't. I have a really strange relationship with food. I want to be healthier. And I need to be ok with consuming more calories then I do . I'd rather smell and be around and cook food then actively eat it.
    La croix peach pear sparkling water 0 calories
    Salad-347 (which I only ate 3/4 of it but it filled up a whole bowl)
    Lettuce 10 calories
    Cucumber 4 calories
    Onion 9 calories
    Tomato 25 calories
    Egg 78 calories
    Dressing poppy seed- 131 calories
    Croutons 5 calories
    Honey ham-18 calories
    Turkey breast- 10 calories
    Cheese 57

    2 cups coffee with creamer 42 cals
    Chicken breast (Italian) 50 cal
    Baked potato 161 with
    Cheese 57
    Sour cream 23

    Please be careful, prpl - 1,000 isn't a lot. One of my textbooks in college pointed to research that less than 800 calories will cause the body to restrict metabolism, which will hurt your energy levels, mood, and ability to lose/maintain weight. If you can make 1,500 calories your limit of guilt that would be an improvement, and more viable. Otherwise, you aren't giving yourself a lot of room for error.
