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.
