So … I am on the third day of my new No-Beer streak. It’s only been three days for this streak starting June 10 but the previous streak was eight days, starting June 1. I had two beers on June 9. So, in the past eleven days, I have had only two beers.
Which is significant as two beers was a daily consumption and usually it was more than two beers.
But, since I’m now on an “eat less move more” kick, which really is an “eat fewer calories and burn more calories” kick, I decided to limit the beer calories.
I haven’t officially started to count calories but I am mindful of calories. So, today, I had a Slim Fast shake (180 calories) for breakfast and one for lunch (180 calories). For a snack, I had a McDonald’s breakfast burrito (290 calories) that someone gave me this morning and I just ate as a snack.
So, so far today my calorie count is 670, which is 41% of 1,600 calories, if I was limiting to 1,600 calories.
This evening, I will have a salad with canned chicken for about 800 calories.
A friend asked if there was a correlation between the lack of fruits and vegetables in my diet and the depression I suffer from. I suppose it would be an easy connection as he isn’t depressed and eats a lot of fruits and vegetables. Since I don’t and I have depression, there must be some sort of connection.
C’Est La Vie.
