I've been pretty good with food for the last week. I've gone over target a couple days, but typically by only a couple hundred calories.
Yesterday I ate the way I used to. French toast for breakfast, a heavy lunch of leftovers and then a big dinner. Clocked in at about 2,200 calories.
I think it was actually good to have done this. I could feel how uncomfortable I was having eaten that much. And putting it all together on the nutrition tracker, I could see how all those choices over the day had added up to a heavy calorie day. Thank goodness that I hadn't snacked during the day too.
This is how I can eat 2500 or more in a day, which mixed with low exercise levels, is just going to be impossible to conquer.
So now that I see where the pitfall is, I think I will be better able to avoid it in the future.
