I'm gonna use this post to update water/calories for the Double Dog Challenge.
My Pur water pitcher is getting a workout! I've already refilled it a couple times since I made a pot of coffee and had 4 cups of my required 8 cups of water with breakfast. I plan to have the rest of the require 8 after Pilates around lunchtime. I don't like to drink water around suppertime, cause then I'm up at night weeing. Annoying.My goal for the challenge is to divide the water into 4 + 4 or 3 + 3 + 1 (the last with afternoon snack or just before dinner). Drinking water is a chore for me, so I just wanna drink it and be done.
My insides are sloshy. :)
So, I'll just edit this post as the day goes on:
BREAKFAST: (I entered the quantities at SparkPeople.com's Nutrition Tracker to get the particulars of calories, carbs, fats, protein, etc.)
4 cups water
2 cups coffee with sucralose liquid
1.5 cups fresh papaya with TrueLime crystals

1 serving Amazing Grass supplement (I usually take this the day of trainer workouts)
1/2 scoop Solgar Whey to Go
breakfast calories: 398
LUNCH: (was craving Southern Fried Chicken of all things. Ended up going with the least damaging "fried chicken" offering I could think of on the drive home...and yes, I'm a cheese freak.)
1/3 ounce Swiss Chees--after workout "immediate snack"
Wendy's Spicy Chicken Caesar salad--no dressing, no croutons
2 TBSP parmesan/shaved

1/2 cup cucumber slices

Day's target calories: 1760
I ended up drinking 12 glasses of water, so I did better than the challenge demanded. Yay.
According to the SparkPeople.com Nutrition tracker, I met THEIR goals for me for:
I went over their goals for me for:
--sodium (er, I normally do, being the cheese and salt freak I am)
--fiber (I ate 52 grams of fiber. Heh.)
They have me low on carbohydrates (that's intentional on my part, though I'm not an Atkins sort of eater. I mean, I made it to 189 carbs, even though I'd ideally like to stay in the neighborhood of 125), as well as a lot of nutrients, but I just took a magnesium and multivitamin supplement, and that covers a lot of what I went under (magnesium, B12, folate, etc).
I didn't have a lot of fruit or coconut water today, so Potassium intake is low.
There ya go. Day one...on target re calories and water.
