Daily Eats – 7/16/12

Oh hey, remember when I used to do these? Hahahaha…ha…haha. Hokay!



Thomas’ Mini bagel (120) with 1/2 tbsp homemade cashew butter (40 cal) and 1/2 tbsp strawberry cream cheese (25 cal)


Vitasoy soy milk (130 cal)


1/2 cup cherries (36 cal) and 1/2 cup blueberries (41 cal)



2 pieces of leftover fajita steak (~60 cal) with peppers and onions (~60 cal)


2 ounces of grilled salmon (~100 cal) with 2 asparagus stalks (7 calories)



Roasted seaweed (9 cal)


At this point, I failed to take any more photos throughout the day, so I will just summarize the epic fail that was the rest of my day: Chick-Fil-A chicken nuggets & fries (like 900 cal – WHOOPS!), and a bowl of blueberries and whipped cream later for dessert (100 cal), and a Campbell’s Soup At Hand (80 cal).

Total: ~1,708 calories

Oh hey, look at that. Even with all o’ that, I still managed to end up in a reasonable zone. Huh, go figure. Not that I’ll be making a habit of it, it’s just nice not to have to feel TOO terrible about it today.


  1. Don’t even fret. Just remember that it adds up but each day you learn!

    Hi Gretchen! I’ve been a total lurker for a while now…

    Do you eat enough during the day? It seems like your calories were really low before your dinner. I know when I don’t eat enough calories spread throughout the day, I end up eating anything I can find when I get home from work!

    • Hi Katherine! Thanks for coming out of the woodwork! 🙂

      I definitely find that on some days, I end up not eating a whole lot during the daytime. I just don’t get as hungry while I’m strapped to my desk, and often do find that when I push off eating (especially an afternoon snack before I leave work) I’m more likely to gorge myself at dins. It’s something that I know I can prevent with a little good planning, I’m just bad at planning, hahaha. Working on it though!!
