Yesterday, we starting keeping track of our total calories on index cards. Below are our results. The trick to keeping your calories low is paying close attention to serving sizes. We use a small postal scale to weigh all of the food. This is great for measuring out exactly half a serving of sunflower seeds or exactly one 28 gram serving of jerky. Continually weighing and recording the number of calories in the food that we eat has already caused us to start eating less – sometimes just because we don’t want to write it down! We went to Subway for dinner. We both got 6-inch subs with double meat. It was adaquately filling, way lower in calories than a footlong, and cheaper too! 🙂 Also, pickles and crystal light helped a lot – by both having 0 calories!!!
As far as exercise goes, we’ve been waking up every morning and doing a simple EA Active workout. Usually we try to run in the evenings, but that hasn’t been happening this week – cause Lisa’s had to stay late at work. 😦
