Okay Spark Friends be ready for a confession...
Yesterday I had the day off work as I have what feels like a terrible head cold. I was also really hungry through the day and by about 4pm only had 102 calories left for dinner. I discussed this with a weight loss buddy who suggested a Subway Salad which was a great idea. I looked up which salad I would get etc and then picked up Hubby. Well I was very weak and we ended up getting Red Rooster.
Why? I hear you ask, because we couldn't be bothered going to Subway as it doesn't have a drive thru. By the time we decided what to do about dinner I was really hungry and past the point of rational thought. Not only did I not get a Veggie Delight Salad with Cheddar Cheese from Subway which would have been an easy 98 calories, but I ate more than I normally would and brought the Big Deal, with a red rooster roll, chicken strips, small potato and gravy and a few chips (it really was just a few as I gave a lot of the chips away).
So I didn't blow my calories just a little bit...I blew them by a whole extra day's worth of calories at 1248 over! I used the calories given on the Red Rooster web site so I probably had a little less than this as I didn't eat many of the chips but still a massive number.
I can only put it down to feeling sick and really just wanting to feel that full and sleepy feeling which only a pig-out can give you. Despite feeling revolting due to head cold and binge I still got on the bike after dinner and did 31 minutes and burned 244 calories according to the bike (Spark people puts my burn at much higher than this).
Overall for the past 7 days I averaged 1572 calories which is 22 calories over the top of my Spark People range - this is with yesterdays massive blow out. Hopefully with the exercise I have been doing and will do it won't have too much impact on Saturday when I weigh in.
Okay that's it confession over - moving on without beating myself up to a new day of 'clean' eating.
