There are times when I just have this insatiable appetite for delicious baked treat. Today that craving comes in the form of cupcakes. I don't know what it is about cupcakes. They are tiny, and cute, and piled high with frosting and I want to eat gobs of them. The vast array of flavors available: key lime, red velvet with cream cheese frosting, chocolate with chocolate frosting! Yum! See? Do you see why I love cupcakes?
Yet, in my oven right now I am baking six precious little 75 calorie a piece Pillsbury Brownie minis in a hope that will cure me of my cupcake need.
You'd think after all this talk about cupcakes I would likely have had a terrible calorie intake day. Not so bad though, really. I had a Kashi bar for breakfast= 120 cal. For lunch I had a 4oz steak, 1/2 a potato, and 2/3 c. mixed veggies= 352 cal.
I haven't had supper yet, but I'm planning on eating a cajun turkey sandwich on wheat with Lays Baked Southwestern Ranch chips, a fruit cup, and baby carrots= 490 cal. Plus the two little brownies I'll have to eat= 150 cal and the small bowl of cereal I had for snack= 160 cal, if I control myself I'll finish this day of rest and cupcake longing having eaten a whopping total of=1272. That's right only 1272 calories and that included brownies!
I may not get my cupcakes today, but I'm pretty proud of how well I did. Stay tuned for more calorie counting fun! If you have a meal you'd like me to try fixing a "slimmed down" way, shoot me your idea. I'll take it as a challenge!
Good night calorie counting friends!
