Just Keep Counting, Just Keep Counting
Thursday, May 28, 2009
So, I think I just need to write this to give myself a little reminder to just keep counting the calories. Even though I ate out last night, I counted every calorie and budgeted for it during the rest of the day so it was DEFINITELY much less of a hit than it would have been otherwise. I'm pretty happy with that.
HOWEVER, saving up some calories and eating a big yummy Old Spaghetti Factory dinner made me feel a little freewheelin' this morning. It was all I could do to make myself put away the 100 calorie snack bar that I DIDN'T need or even really want.
Counting the calories is a good thing. Even though I know tomorrow I'm going hog wild again (for Delaney's birthday) and probably for the whole weekend because of her birthday, it's still worth it to count them today to bank a little and be more ready to go back on track afterwards. The more I skip, the easier it is to skip on the days I don't intend to, so sticking with it every day possible really helps and I certainly still need it.
