#37 – What I Ate & Counting Calories

Today’s food budget was 1550 calories.

Workout: T25 (25 min HIIT): Earned 283 calories. I use this website to calculate (don’t know how accurate it is, though) www.homeworkoutexpert.com

Breakfast: Omelet with peas (1/2 cup), tomatoes (1/2 cup), zucchini (1/2 cup), 2 large egg whites, 1 large egg. Coconut oil (to fry, 1 tsp), served with avocado (1/4 cup) on 1 slice of whole grain toast – 388 calories.

Lunch: Stir fry with carrots (1 cup), red pepper (1 cup), black beans (1/2 cup), green beans (1/2 cup), zucchini (1 cup), Farro (cooked, 1/2 cup) and coconut oil (1 tsp) – 386 calories. This makes a big portion.

Snack: Homemade ice coffee with skimmed milk (1 cup) and Stevia. Peanutbutter (1 tsp) – 130 calories.

Dinner: Pasta & veggies with whole wheat pasta (3 oz), red pepper/egg plant/pumpkin (1 cup), tomatoes (1 cup), Pinto beans (1/2 cup), olive oil (1 tbsp) – 681 calories.

Dessert: Lindor dark chocolate ball (1 ball) and a cup of sleepy-time tea with Stevia – 80 calories.

Total calories for the day: 1550 (food) + 283 (workout) – 1585 (consumed) = 248 remaining.

Total macros for the day: 54% carbs (goal 50%), 28% fat (goal 30%) and 18% protein (goal 20%).

Tracked & calculated with the MyFitnessPal App.

P.S. This is not an exact science…some calorie calculations may be slightly off. But that’s just something you have to live with.
