Well, work was interesting as my appetite was hit or miss. My assistant manager was trying to get me laughing as well as my partner to have an appetite and rejoin them… just I couldn’t regain my sense of appetite. So I would take my second dose of protein and L-Glutamine to patch up my torn ab muscles. My partner would offer to buy me a drink to reamp me and get my snappy again so she picked up a Sugarfree RedBull energy drink and offer that to me.
“Lunch”: Soy milk protein shake with L-Glutamine, 8oz dose – 200 calories, 18 grams of protein
Reamp: Sugarfree RedBull – 10 calories
Later in the day, my buddy who was in town from spring break at his med school wanted me to come over to catch up and try to do some repairs on his parents computers. He offered to catch lunch for me taking time out of my day to assist. Ended up eating at Braum’s for my “cheat” due to loss of appetite earlier today, so I can say it’s fair to say I didn’t kill my intake restrictions. Braum’s unfortunately does not have any nutritional facts posted, so I am using approximate calculations from CalorieKing and rough estimates based on the McDonald’s posted nutritional facts.
Dinner – (Disclaimer: Some of these are ROUGH calculations, take them as you will – Zero)
Braum’s Jalapeno Chedder Jack Cheese Burger – 877 calories
Medium crinkle cut fries – 240 calories
Medium 16oz Coke – 150 calories
Total count is just a wee bit close, but it does show that even my “cheat” days can be a little fun while not veering off of my target goal of 1,500 – 1,700 calories per day. True, my caloric count isn’t as hardcore as some others, but it does keep me from getting bored and desiring foods that would wreck havoc on my work out.
Grand Total: 1,677 calories
