I started this post last night on 3/18 but then our internet went out probably because of the rain.
I really wish I had my camera with me when I was at Panera for dinner. I love that they have the calories right beside the food on the order board. It made it nice and easy to decide on what to get. I had some idea since I had printed out the nutritional info before heading out. My indulgence today was chocolate. I had it 3 different times. For breakfast I had a smart ones sausage wrap and lunch was a smart ones pasta and spinach meal. I ended the day with 1575. This week I have had a bunch of smart ones meals since they were on sale at Kroger for a really good price. You will see that my food for a week will at times coincide with what was on sale at Kroger. We food shop on Sunday morning right as the new sale starts. This week I was able to get 10 smart ones for like $13. They were on sale and I had a coupon for $3 off 10.
Below is a picture of the notebook I use for my food diary. I have not been able to get into keeping a log online. Maybe if I had a smart phone it would be different. The book is called a Dollar and Cent memo book and I picked them up at Staples. Since I use 2 pages a day it lasts about 2 months. I have a description of my food, the calories and a running total of my calories on the right page and on the left I write my blood sugar and my blood pressure numbers. I also note any exercise or issues I am having that day.
