This is my highest official daily calorie count since surgery.* I'm not worried about it, though. It's all good stuff, and the real culprit was that protein bar. I'll probably never have one again, even though they are insanely delicious. Since the calories are still very much in the proper range, and since I didn't eat anything out of compulsion or bad habits, I'm cool with this.
I did get back on the exercise train today, though I didn't do what I'd planned. I overslept this morning, and after work I didn't feel like going to the office gym, so I didn't get my elliptical workout in. However, I did 30 minutes of Leslie Sansone this evening after work, which was pleasant.
*My previous highest count was on June 27, 2009, when I was about 2.5 months out. I had 870 calories that day. But that was before I started tracking the calories in my vitamins, water mix-ins, and Splenda. Thus, my true calorie count for that day was probably around 965, which means I still haven't beaten my record.
