"Did you record everything you ate that day?"

DietPower nagged me this morning because I only had 1138 calories yesterday. (1138!) I would have eaten more, but I couldn’t have breakfast due to some labs that had to be taken after work. So I didn’t eat anything until around 11 or 12, which is when I had some rigatoni leftovers. After that, I sat around drinking water until, bored, I took a nap. And after that, I went to Mari’s, and we went for that hour-long walk that burned (apparently) 315 calories. Finally I made it home and marinated some salmon, jury-rigged a pan to broil them in (I put aluminum foil over a rack that is evidently supposed to be used for a roast, and placed it in a 9×13 pan), and steamed some brown rice.

That really was all I ate yesterday. So biiiiiiiiiiiii da, DietPower.

I’m looking forward to seeing the numbers when this program has enough data to make a meaningful projection. I’m also wondering what’s up with my metabolism. I really have no idea what “metabolic rate” means (it’s 2418, from the current data). According to DietPower’s website, it’s

The rate at which your body burns calories. The faster your metabolism, the more you must eat to maintain your weight.

2418 seems like a big number, but I have nothing to compare it to.

Anyway, I don’t want to get into the habit of undereating. That will lead to burnout, I’m sure. If I’m not hungry, I won’t eat, but I was ravenous this morning when I couldn’t have breakfast. So, I’m going to have breakfast now.
