More posts than days
Back from dinner and am not going to crunch it, but I've definitely hit my 1200 and maybe a little more today. My friend made a wonderful meal of leek and potato soup, grilled portabello, cous-cous, zucchini and tomatoes, halloumi and leaves. No cous-cous for me, one bowl of soup, one slice of bread, 5 olives, a little hummus, one slice of halloumi, one mushroom, loads of veggies and a huge pile of leaves. LOADS of olive oil, I think. One glass of red and a few sips of white. Admittedly if I had been alone this evening, there is no way I could have (or indeed would have) upped my totals from 600 to 1200 in one meal; I think I would have managed (just) to make 900. That has been normal for me for YEARS. But now I am now thinking about averages - yes, alone I can eat very little (it's amazing how stubborn my mind can make me), but I am not alone for any more than 3 or 4 evenings a week, and on those evenings my calories are going to be higher. So on average, if I did the math (which being innumerate, I can't), I am probably not as low in calories as I seem to be right now. I shall enter as much as I can into COM and see. I will be happy if I am hitting all my nutritional bases to be honest.
