Counting My Calories.

I used my Food Processor for the first time!

My husband's mom always makes Chimol and I love it. Chimol is like a Salsa I guess. Chopped Tomato, Pepper, Cilantro, Onions,Oil and Lemon. You can make it chunky or you can make it more like a sauce. With my food processor I made my own version! I made it like a sauce so I can pour it over grilled chicken tonight. Yum!

I've been using "myfitness pal" App on my iphone to track my calories. I love this app because it has everything you can possibly think of!

It even had what I ate yesterday... A Mucho Burrito! Delicious! Although, it made me go over my daily calories.... I wouldn't have thought about it at all if I hadn't added it to my app.
I'll do better today. I'm making my grocery list now! Less eating out and more eating in!

Do you calorie count? How have you been doing lately!?


  1. The Chimol sounds delicious! I don't count my exact calories anymore but I did when I was losing weight. For my height I was supposed to have 1200 to 1500 calories a day. I stayed at about 1200. My calories were divided out between six small meals a day. It helped me to lose 27 pounds in three months (along with exercising).

  2. One more thing...even when I was in weight loss mode I never counted calories on Saturday. Saturday has and will forever be my calorie day.

  3. Thanks Maryellen! Some weeks I do so well with having only 1300 a day other weeks not so much. I need to be consistent!

  4. mmm, your chimol looks good, i've never even heard of it. i'll have to try it with my food processor!
    omg, i want a mucho burrito NOW!! can you overnight me one? lol!!

  5. I did calorie count several years ago, but I actually did better losing weight when I didn't count calories. Though, when I did do the calorie counting, it helped me know approx of what to eat and how much.

  6. I NEVER count calories. I dont eat wheat, sugar or dairy and i feel amazing. Plus I lost weight in the process. Try it!!!!
