Christmas eve dinner... 935 calories
Thursday, December 24, 2015
Had a nice Christmas eve dinner at my grandmother's tonight. Was so full by the end of it that I could only get in a 12 minute walk.
It started off with decorating cookies with one of my young cousins. I didn't eat a single bite from those.
Her younger sister on the other hand was baking ginger cookies for the first time. I had half a cookie from that fresh out of the oven batch. No way to estimate the calories in that serving. But it was delicious.
I had a slice of chicken breast about 2 ounces, a slice of chicken thigh about 2 ounces. I logged it as 0.25 chicken thigh and 3 ounces of chicken breast roasted.
One big spoonful of cranberry sauce
~1 cup of stuffing and gravy
~1.5 cups of green bean casserole (it's hard to believe how much I love this)
~0.5 cup of sweet potatoes with marshmallows.
My rough estimates using similar items comes to 935 calories.
I drove back home and thought of walking for 32 minutes but couldn't do more than 12. Weird stitch on my sides.. plus it's really warm out there. I guess all the buttery food has made me sluggish tonight.
I have a similar lunch planned tomorrow with my grandmother and some more of her family. It's really yummy and warm but wow this stuff is loaded with calories. I hope I can get in my 32 minute walk tomorrow to balance this off.
How was your Christmas dinner??
