I can't stress enough just how much I hate tracking my food. It has been my downfall for years. I'm on program again, and tracking my food, whether I like it or not. *SIGH*
Today at work we had a baby shower for one of my coworkers. All the food was home made, and just delicious! I took what I felt were reasonable servings of what I could eat (gluten free). Then since the shower turned into a meeting of sorts, and the food stayed there, I went for seconds on the potato salad. What could be the harm? Really? I was being careful, right?
When I got back to my desk, and got into my tracker, I figured I'd ended up with approximately 3 c. of potato salad.
Over 1,000 calories! What? Really? I checked again. Yup, over 1,000 calories. That's way too many zeros for my taste.
I'm going to eat a reasonable dinner tonight, even though it puts me over for the day, but I gotta tell you, there is no food that's worth that many calories.
