Curse you potato salad!

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

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.

    emoticon One day at a time, just today, forget yesterday, there is nothing you can do about that one. But today, you can make wiser choices because of what you learned in the past, and change your future. You can do it, don't let the slip ups derail you. :)

    (1) Learn from what you did yesterday. (2) Let it go. (3) Consider making different choices today.

Best of success to you.

    I bet there is some healthy alternative potato salad, so you won't feel you have to give up something you really like.
I was thinking a sweet potato salad, I am sure I could concoct something! lol

    I love potato salad, all kinds. But it comes with so many calories that I only have it once in a while. Enjoy it in small quantities, a bit or two will be enough to satisfy your taste buds. emoticon emoticon

    emoticon emoticon What ever you do,don't beat yourself up! Keep tracking your food and forget the potato salad, it is down the hatch and gone!

Go was good! Now forget it! You can do this, we all have slip ups, and we can overcome them.

Take an extra walk, or exercise a little longer...everything will be fine!

Have a wonderful Day and Keep Smiling!
