(If you don't know about my CrossFit/Shoe challenge, read THIS post first.)
I always forget how much extra food I'm eating until I start logging every calorie. And believe me, I have been counting EVERY CALORIE. For example, when I licked of little muffin batter from my finger, I logged it into MyFitnessPal. When I ate a handful of almonds, and wasn't sure how many calories were in a handful, I researched it. (There are about 23 whole raw kernels in one ounce and 7 calories per kernel. My handful is about 16-18 kernels, therefore...112-126 calories per handful, and I count each one to have an exact number.) When I fixed dinner, I knew exactly how many sweet potato fries I could have without exceeding my daily allotted intake (1200-1400 calories).
It's been hard. I ended day one with a total of 1358 calories.Unnervingly close.
Day two has been easier thus far. I calculated breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner and I still have room for another hundred calories if I get hungry.
My day two work out kicked my trash.
My legs were all rubbery after the burpee reps, but I have to say the push-ups were easier than yesterday. Though my muscles are achy today. Keep in mind that my caloric intake is not subtracting the calories I burned during my workout, which is the way MyFitnessPal calculates the totals, much to my dismay.

Here are pics of my boots. Aren't they gorgeous?
|From left to right: My faux Uggs wedges; my suede, chocolate brown spiked-heels;, and my Buffy boots: faux leather, exposed zipper, and sexy heel (while still sturdy enough to kick vampire butt).|
|On the left, my newest acquisition: tan faux leather fierce heel boots. And on the right: My grey short heel boots that my sister is always coveting.|
