A good healthy snack choice - as long as portion control is followed.
Thursday. My total SNACK was 522 calories. While this was quite a bit - considering what I have been eating recently - I think that I still made some good choices. My total caloric consumption for the day was still 'only' 1532 calories. This is the most amount of calories that I have consumed in four months - and yet, the time is nearing when I should start ratcheting up my calories consumed per day. Recently, I have felt a bit sluggish and I do think it is time to increase my calories per day up from 1000. I have no intention of returning to my previous habit of consuming 5000+ calories per day - but I am under the impression that anything under 1900 calories per day should still result in slow steady weight loss of 1 or 2 pounds per week. Still, I am not ready to bring my calories up to 1900 so quickly. I am not going to fret about this one day when my calories exceeded 1500. I am still very proud of all that I have accomplished. One day of eating 1500 calories only seems outsized compared to what I have been doing - but it is still a very low caloric total - even for a man who would weigh 200 lbs and wanted to shed a pound or two per week - which does not describe me just yet - my last weight was 214 lbs.
The conclusion that I am drawing from yesterdays 'binge' was that a 522 late night calorie snack (fruits and nuts) will not derail my efforts for the week and that I should just continue doing what I am doing. And this is precisely what I intend to do!

|'HILL CLIMB' WORKOUT - 40 MINUTES|
I know perfectly well why I selected HILL CLIMB. There is a little hill in my future which I find myself thinking about every day - It can be found in Yosemite Park and it is called HALF DOME. I know that referring to HALF DOME as a hill is like calling an ocean liner a boat.
