New-tition-izing Wa LA & Cha cha cha

Greeting Bloggers!

This post is brought to you by New-trition-izing Marie. Who knew that 6 days later I would still be hooked on this idea. Will wonders ever cease? Look at my week so far:
Weekly Progress:
NUTRIENTS: GOAL 8/5 8/6 8/7 8/8 8/9 8/10 TODAY
Calories: 1250 - 1600 1,546 1,971 1,177 1,206 1,459 1,218 1,470
Fat: 28 - 62 28 95 26 7 30 26 44
Carbohydrates: 141 - 260 191 111 141 147 147 102 135
Protein: 60 - 140 79 89 46 78 73 74 74


Who new it wasn't rocket science? Ok so maybe some of us are late bloomers.
Add to that Phil & I have been walking 3 plus miles a day most days.

Things I have learned as a new dieter this first week:
  1. Counting calories is not rocket science
  2. Gluten free lasagna calorie counting is... but can be done
  3. Just about anything dairy is a calorie magnet
  4. Just about any vegetable is not
  5. I can still find enough for two beers a day if I want too
  6. Spark People is a great site to help me track calories and exercise. Yippee skippy
I am amazed at myself so far if I do say so myself. Next thing I know it will go bye a weight scale..but not till we migrate to Tucson on October. There may be hope for me yet.

Cheers to all! Marie
