I owned it!

Thursday, April 05, 2012

I've been really looking forward to an anniversary breakfast that work was holding at a big function hall. there was brunch!!! I told myself that I was going to let myself have whatever I wanted, since I've been really "good", this is a special occasion, and i never get a chance to go to a breakfast buffet anymore! I'm also a "recovering vegetarian" (haha) and was really looking forward to some bacon, since i still really don't eat meat that much.
so I got there, and actually had a pretty reasonable breakfast. 2 pieces of bacon, 3 pieces of sausage (holy sat fat!) but also fruit and some plain scrambled eggs. I wanted a danish but said no- not worth it. also wanted a bagel but again, not special enough to justify. i also avoided juice, which i could drink gallons of.
i felt very heavy and a bit ill driving back to work, but i enjoyed myself and it was worth it. Had a very small lunch since I was still sort of full.
and then it started to hit me... this incredible craving for fast food for dinner. husband's not home... don't feel like cooking... have nothing planned... I want Mcdonald's! and what the heck... i already had a big breakfast! i just won't track anything and will call the day a total wash!!
so i stopped on the way home and got a big mac and fries.
then i REALLY felt ill.
i went out with the dog for a bit to get in some exercise, and then decided while I was out that i HAD to track today. just own it. whatever the numbers are. better to know.

I only went over by 100 calories!!! i went over by more than that in fat, but I'm trying not to dwell. I'm very proud of myself that I just owned it. What's done is done, i feel like crap, and won't be doing it again any time soon.

    thanks hon!!! and I STILL lost weight! ha! I think my body is actually appreciating a more relaxed approach- being really "good" and sticking to plan on most days, and then eating at the higher end of my range here and there. seems to be fooling my body, PLUS making me feel even more like I can have whatever I want to so i don't feel deprived. it's all good! :)
