So yeah, I am of the opinion that I'm carrying around a few pounds of fat more than I absolutely need. And since I'm just not feeling the bike riding, I have to do something else. So, calorie counting it is! Thankfully there is a host of programs for the iPhone that can help track what you stuff in your face, so I don't have to rely on my crappy memory (or pens that don't write, or net access I don't always have, etc).

Thus I give you, week 1:

Yeah, Sunday didn't exactly work for the diet (not sure if it was the cake, or the rum balls, or the lack of exercise). Thankfully I was significantly under for the week up till then. And you can see Monday and Thursday were days I drove to work (this graph includes calories burned as negatives, pulling that day's total down). Monday I was also still settling in to just how many calories are in some of my usual lunch foods. I expect this week to be better, since I'm hoping to only drive in one day instead of two, and I know to avoid certain foods more now. I'll probably not be having ice cream on Friday, either, so that should help. :)

Yes, the daily budget is set kinda high. As I said, I'm only carrying around a few too many pounds, thus I don't have much I want to loose and so I can afford to be casual about it. Why am I posting this here? Because these kinds of things don't work well in a vacuum and I'm more likely to stick to it if I'm public about it. Don't worry, this shouldn't take long.

Wow, that would have been so handy when the_misha and I were watching calories last year!

yeah, the daily tracking is nice and sleek also. It's really a quite nice program, save for a few annoying issues that I've reported and am hoping they address in an update soon.

Sure is handy having the log right there on the phone, since it's pretty much with me no matter where I am.
