I went to the local Renaissance Faire today with two things I was CERTAINLY doing : getting a turkey leg, and watching the jousting. I did neither. No jousting shows were scheduled by the time I got there today, and they ran out of Turkey Leggs. How does a Ren Faire run out of the most popular item!? Oh well. I ended up getting some garlic chicken and a yummy rice pilaf since I hadn't eaten yet with the anticipation of my barbaric feast. I really want to make that pilaf. It had veggies, lentils, almonds, and cranberries in it. Just delicious. I walked 9 miles total so I definitely burnt some calories.

I ended the day with going 7 grams of fat over my range. Not too bad considering breakfast was half of a java chip frappachino - 11g of fat right there. I had the dark meat of the rotisserie chicken Dylan and I shared for dinner - 24g there. That's 35 and my top value on fat range is 40.
The calories seem to be fine. I wasn't hungry at all between meals. This may be easier than I thought. The hardest part will be eating enough protein without eating too much fat. I may start eating more beans or start supplementing with a protein shake. Powders are just so expensive though. Bleh.

    Sorry you didn't get the barbaric feast you had in mind! emoticon

    Plan B sounded delicious though! emoticon
    Nine miles -- WTG!!!!! That's awesome! emoticon

    We eat a lot of beans in our meals. Hubby loves his protein shake. I tried to hide it in my lunch smoothie, but I thought it was really gross! That was the end of protein powder for me. I can "hide" a lot of things in my smoothie, but that didn't work. Also, I am a very, very picky eater!

    Hope you are able to strike the balance you are looking for. Sounds like you are off to a good start!
