August 2009 - Mexico

Wednesday, March 3, 2010


Well I accomplished my goal again today! Up at 7am and on the elliptical! Did 25 minutes on the elliptical, 10 minutes on the treadmill, the arms workout my Aunt and Uncle taught me, and then some stretches. We had company last night so I didn't get a night workout in, but tonight I plan to try Barry's Boot Camp DVD that Veronica gave me.

I am sitting here eating lunch and let me tell you I am having the Lean Cuisine Roast Turkey Breast with stuffing and apples! DELICIOUS!

So one of the items that I have been trying to learn is how many Carbs/Fat/etc. today I was reading the back of my Lean Cuisine and it gave you examples for a 2000 Calorie Diet - so I did the calculations to come up with my 1500 Calorie Diet. So if you are looking for the info also here goes:
                                     Guideline                               My 1500 Calorie Diet                                  Fat                         3.25g per 100 calories                  3.25 x 15 = 48g
Saturated Fat          1g per 100 calories                       1 x 15 = 15g
Cholestorol             15mg per 100 calories                  15 x 15 = 225mg
Sodium                   120mg per 100 calories                120 x 15 = 1800mg
Carbs                     15g per 100 calories                     15 x 15 = 225g             
Dietary Fiber           1.25g per 100 calories                 1.25 x 15 = 19g

Hope this helps you! It sure helped me.
