According to the chart that I am now reading, based on my height, age and target weight, my daily calorie intake should be (must be?) 1,750 calories. Umm... let me count the calories that I've "eaten", so far, today. For breakfast I had 5 small pandesal, a slice of cheese and a cup of sugar-free coffee. For lunch, I took Ethan to Wendy's where I ate a serving of macaroni salad and a medium size cup of light Coke. When I got back home, I started to blog and in the process ate a cup of mixed nuts and (again) a full glass of light coke.

A piece of pandesal has 70 calories, a slice of cheese, 100 calories, a cup of sugar-free coffee, 20 calories. The macaroni salad has about 290 calories, light coke is 0 cal, and the cup of mixed nuts is equal to 300 calories. The total is 1,060 empty-carbo-loaded calories! I should have not eaten 5 pieces of pandesal as 3 would have been fine. I should have ordered the green salad instead of the macaroni. I should have not placed the 1.5 kg can of Planters mixed nuts conveniently near for me to reach out and take a handful while blog hopping. Nuts are actually good for the us, but a cup full? - that's uric acid to the max!

Daughter #4 is calling me now for dinner. It would only be her, Ethan and I at the dinner table tonight. Even if I want to I cannot skip dinner for the sake of appearances. Anyway, I can still eat 690 calorie-worth of food.Coming!!!
