my latest

Friday, October 09, 2009

Yesterday was my busiest work day of the month. I'm sorry to say that my eating did not make it through the day unscathed. I would go into the kitchen and think, "ok, something healthy. What can I eat?" but nothing came to mind. So I had white bread toast, white tortilla with cheese, etc. I didn't have time to log in my food, but I'm pretty sure that it was scary. By 4pm I decided to stop trying for a normal day & I declared it my free day for the we had boxed mac & cheese with chicken nuggets for dinner! (spontaneous free days are the worst, because I like looking forward to indulgence).

My water also suffered, and consequently so did I. I don't know what it is about water--I know that I need it, I know that I like it, I know that it'll make me feel better & that it's easy enough to get some....and yet I don't always drink it. I put it off. Yesterday I went to bed feeling like I'd been dried out & thinking, "tomorrow I'm going to DROWN myself from drinking so much water!" but I didn't even start drinking any until noon! Now I'm back on track (and needing to visit the loo), but sheesh!

Anyhow, this isn't really an exciting blog post, it's just my musings. So that's the latest with me. Today things are back on track, and I plan to keep them there.

    I like the spontaneous free days because I can go too far overboard if I plan one.

    Sometimes that stress eating is unavoidable and a busy work day would definitely fall in that category. Good job pulling it back to perspective today!

    GOOD FOR YOU! We all have those days that run away with our healthy choices. Way to go on pulling it together and not letting the next day run away with the last.

    The tortilla doesn't sound too unhealthy... good job on getting back on track with the water!
