Good start, poor finish

So today started great. Banana 105 calories, glass of apple juice 117 calories, mid-morning snack-triple threat bar 23o calories. Then I came home for lunch had a bagel turkey sandwich and deviled eggs, not bad but not great. However it all falls apart this evening since I had a dinner at the Foundry Grill planned with Gail as it was our anniversary. Filet Mignon, au gratin potatos, spinich, Tortilla soup, bread, etc. Ok, so I burned through all of the remainder of todays caloric intact and all of tomorrow's as well. So I suppose I'll just have to drink water tomorrow and dream about the food I had today. That or I can get back on the calorie monitoring and actually work out sometime. Probably the more likely solution.

What I've learned, A. It's not easy to track each calorie, but it's helpful to know. B. Our culture is not designed to feed you what you need, but what you think you want.

Oh well, more spinning, less eating will have to be the key.
