Counting those Calories

At work, I eat 9 to 5 non stop. I am always hungry and stomach is always growling. Yesterday I stuffed myself up. It felt good. I was curious as to the amount of calories I am taking in. So let’s count the calories from yesterday (approximate numbers taken from nutritiondata.com):

2 glasses of chocolate milk (416 calories)
2 bananas (210 calories)

1 1/4 cup of white rice (212 calories)
1 cup of chinese cabbage (20 calories)
100 g? cup of beef (221 calories)
1/2 cup of tomato sauce (39 calories)

Afternoon snack (stomach was growling by now)
2 whole wheat bagel (562 calories)
4 teaspoon of peanut butter (376 calories)
2 glasses of chocolate milk (416 calories)

1 cup of tomato soup (85 calories)
1/4 cup of potato (33.5 calories)

Night Drink
1 cup of caffe latte (248 calories)

Total Calories = 2838

That sounds about right. As you can see I had a light breakfast and by the afternoon I was getting very hungry. My afternoon snack is more like a meal. Four glasses of chocolate milk is a rariety. I only did that b/c I had nothing to eat in the office.

This is during off season too. Can you imagine what my intake will be like on my on season? Note to self: Store lots of foods and snacks in the office during heavy training.

Fruit for thought: The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill

I recently finished listening to the whole series of podcasts on The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill. It has been a sobering podcast to listen to. I highly recommend for those who are in seminary or going to ministry full-time to listen to. It is a good reminder that
