Last night hubby and I went out with some friends. The evening started at their apartment. He is a master chef and cooked up an amazing dinner. She's the hostess with the mostest so our wine and beer glasses were always full. After dinner we went out for some shisha and drinks and by the end of the evening, though I hadn't overeaten and my drinks weren't unreasonable, I felt AWFUL.
We got home and I was desperately hungry and ate whatever healthy food I could find, but then I felt GUILTY.
I braved through my fear this morning and tallied up my calories from yesterday and realized...I'd only had about 2300 calories in total. That's much more than I've been eating over the past month, but *significantly* less than what I'd been eating just a month ago.
Plus I hadn't really had enough water yesterday, which added to my yucky feeling.
So yesterday's "overindulgence" was a quick wake-up call: I HAVE made progress! And when I slip back into old ways like I did yesterday, it doesn't make me feel good.
Though dinner was superb (I wish he'd open a restaurant!), I'm happy to get back on the wagon today: fresh fruits, veggies, lean meats, no creamy sauces, and LOTS of water.
Funny how one bad day can end up looking not so bad after all!
