I went to a baby shower yesterday. It was outside and it was so hot! I literally drank 8 glasses of water while I was there! I also overdid in calories. I just calculated it today and whoah was I surprised!
I know I didn't do too well later in the day. But while at the baby shower, I didn't think I ate that much. In looking at the food, it was more the composite of the food rather than the amount. Much of what they had was very fat laden and not health conscious in any way. They had cucumber sandwiches, which looked really good until...I bit into it to find it was cream cheese! Yucky! I only eat cream cheese in cheesecake. That was a bit that I had to count, but wish I hadn't taken. I should have asked what was in it. Then, they had tortellini salad, which was great! I had about a half of a cup, but lots of calories I found out. There were also chicken salad sandwiches made with croissants...Those added up too!
They didn't have cake, but had mini chocolate chip cookes, brownies bites and cake bites. I had 3 mini chocolate chip cookies (which cost me 180 calories) and a brownie bit which expensive too! At the end of the shower, they had martinis...I know now I should have had the splurge of a diet coke. (I have been weening myself of diet soda).
Then we had dinner with my grandma. Guess what it was? Taquitos with guacamole and cheese and HUGE carne asada tacos. It all tasted really good but I learned my lesson last night. I couldn't sleep my stomach was so upset! I felt miserable. I guess that is a good sign because had this happened a year ago, it wouldn't even phase my body. It would be able to digest without any issues, proving what terrible shape I was in.
I will not have a 2,800 calorie day again! It is simply not worth the pain or lack of sleep!
