Day 46

I have found something that can satisfy my sweet tooth pretty well and not add many carbs. A bit of chocolate. I did not realize that it was not all that bad in carbs. A whole bar is only 22 ECC carbs. I just have 1/4 of the bar maybe once a day and of course count the carbs which is 5.5 against my total so that means pretty much only breakfast where I have pretty much no carbs. But still at least it is sweet, and helps keep the cravings away. Sometimes just know there is something you can have at least a little bit of can help a lot. Of course I chose dark chocolate because it also has health benefits. Also, I actually seem to weigh less after work than when I wake up which at first I thought was odd but then thinking about the fact that I do not always get to eat at work and I am working thus sweating and peeing and not getting as much as I could to drink, though I am sure I usually get what I am supposed to or more as I pretty much always have a tall cup of water handy. I went for my first walk today. It was not a long one. I went .6 miles around the block and timed myself to see how fast I walked which turned out to be exactly 3 miles per hour so according to the calculators I burned 104 calories. I will work up to walking around the block 5 times so that I am going for a total of 3 miles which should take about 1 hours. The cool thing is that at first you are going down hill a bit and then on the way back it gets much harder because you are going up hill so it has built in hard and easy periods and since it only takes 12 minutes to go around that is about 3 minutes down 3 level, three up, 3 level. Nice I think.
