The month of July has been tough for me in regard to eating within my calorie range. I've eaten over my daily allotment everyday except one. There has been some extenuating circumstances such as out of state travel and a family reunion. I'm still eating consciously, but taking in too many calories. During my travel, the chip monster took over. If I could have just limited myself to one serving daily, I would have been within my calorie range. Chips (potato, tortilla, baked) are a weakness of mine and I just had too many.
Yesterday, I took a friend out to eat for her birthday. She chose the place. It was buffet. I tried to focus on veggies and meat. I stayed away from cakes, pies, candy, and cobblers. I did have a small bowl of frozen yogurt. I usually allow myself a 1/2 cup of frozen yogurt or ice cream daily in the summer time. The choices I made at the buffet weren't terrible, I just ate too much food.
I will to get back on track with eating within my calorie range. If you are not where you want to be right now, do NOT give up. One day at a time strive to meet your goals.
