What I ate: October 20, 2010

Breakfast: Homemade bagels with 1.0 oz. cream cheese, 2.0 oz. lox, red onion, and tomato. 420 calories. Actually, I only used about 0.6 oz. of cream cheese this time but I think there was more than 2.0 oz. of lox, so it's probably about the right number of calories in the end.

Lunch: Spicy vegetarian chili with jalapeƱo cornbread. I updated both recipes with Nutrition Facts and they are 218 and 208 calories, respectively. 426 calories is more than I normally eat for lunch, so I'll probably have to stick with just the chili in the future. But not surprisingly, the spicy vegetarian chili is super healthy, and tasty too!

Snack: 40 grams of popcorn (before popping), air popped, with 1/2 tbsp. butter. 171 calories.

Running: Walk/run intervals, 2.66 miles, 31:36, 282 calories. I run with a ridiculous amount of electronic equipment, but the Garmin Forerunner 305 is particularly cool. It's a GPS watch with wireless heart rate monitor. Here's a graph of my pace (teal) vs. heart rate (red) from today:

Weight at beginning of the day: 115.2 lbs.
Weight at the beginning of the next day: 115.0 lbs.

OK, heading back in the right direction despite the caloric accident at lunch with the cornbread and the evening snack of popcorn.
