So there I was gong through my freezer. Checking out just what IS in those foil wrapped packages. I'm not quite sure what was in one - 3 pieces of some sort of chocolate pie (I think it was vegan chocolate pumpkin pie from thanksgiving a couple of years ago).
And we're off! One bite turns into a few bites turns into at least an entire slice, if not more! You know the drill.
That sort of episode rarely happens to me anymore, but I'm not immune. I never will be. Just the fact that that pie was over a year old at least is a clue as to how often it happens.
The rest went in the trash (and no, I didn't go back for more after throwing it out).
I have been crazy hungry lately. Not sure why. Lack of sleep, maybe. I ate very well yesterday, minus that incident; plenty of freggies, protein, maybe a bit light on the carbs.
Do I regret my episode? It actually tasted really, really good; I wasn't just eating because it was there. The only thing I really regret is that I need to eat very clean the next few days to make up for it. If it hadn't tasted so good, yes, I'm sure I would have regretted it.
I tracked it as best I could & got right back to clean eating.
That's the biggest trick with an episode: own it & get right back on track.
