Intriguing

So, one of the things with tracking calories, and I've noticed this before, but I always forget about it in between bouts, is that when I start paying attention to serving sizes, I'm always surprised by some of them. 

For instance, this morning, we had pancakes.  Matt made them, so I entered the recipe into LoseIt, then just adjusted the number of servings to be the number of pancakes made.  That was pretty straightforward.  The spread serving size was a tablespoon; that seemed generous enough for 3 pancakes.  The maple syrup (real maple syrup; I stopped using "maple-flavored" syrup years ago) had a serving size of a quarter-cup.  I didn't have a clean quarter-cup measure, so I used the eighth-cup measure...and one of those was more than enough syrup for 3 pancakes.

I remember back in 1999-2000-ish, trying to keep track of what I ate by using recommended serving sizes only.  I made a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and was amazed at, I think, the serving size of the jelly compared to the peanut butter.  I don't remember now which was bigger; I just rememeber a comically unbalanced sandwich.

A round of WiiSports baseball, 2 rounds of the homerun challenge, a round of bowling, and 3 rounds of WiiFit snowball fight.  If I'd remembered the WiiSports last night, I'd have done that rather than the running.  :-P  I even got Matt back there for the baseball and bowling.  Now that I have the high scores in snowball fight, I fully expect him to come back and wipe them out again.  :)
