This One's For Heff

To celebrate my 14,000th spin on the planet today, I did two things. First of all, I only consumed 800 calories and 8 net carbs today. How you ask? I ate four low carb bars between 10am and 5pm. I was going to eat five today, but I wasn't really that hungry tonight so I didn't.

Secondly, at Heff's suggestion I put 14,000 steps on the pedometer. I waited a little late to really get started, so I passed 14k just before midnight after walking for over an hour non-stop, which was just over 6.5 miles for the day. According to the pedometer, this burned right at 900 calories, so I burned more calories walking today than I ate.

Since I don't have a cave trip planned until the middle of August, I think I can stay around 1000 to 1200 calories a day until then, except for my anniversay dinner next week.

That's right! Cause then we are going to Melting Pot to enjoy some fondue and chocolate martini's. Yeah! To celebrate 4 years of married to each other and surviving to tell about it.
