A bad day that gave me some insight
Wednesday, June 06, 2012
Yesterday started off so good. I had finally lost a pound and was on track for my weight loss goal after having had to spend a week getting back to that point. Then I went to work... We own a car repair business and yesterday was crazy busy and people were crabby. I think it is because the weather went from 70 to 40 and pouring rain. Got to love North Idaho weather. Crabby people make me crabby and I was cold and irritated by the weather too. My husband seeing I was crabby suggested I go take a lunch instead of A) skipping lunch or B) eating my healthy Lean Cuisine. I was leaning towards B but C) eating out at my favorite Bistro sounded way better... A hour in a warm resturant booth with a book and good food.
It would not have been terrible to eat there except I made terrible choices which I now relize I made all becuase of my mood. Here I thought I was not an emotional eater. Wow that was eye opening. At any rate I chose Penne Pasta with Bacon and Marscopne Cheese sauce with Panko bread crumb topping and two glasses of wine.
Yes that pasta was delish and I ate every bite even though I planned on eating only half. I even scrapped the bowl with the bread which I never eat the bread. For dinner I made tater tot caserole for the family and again I chose to eat it instead of something healthy. I totally blew my calorie count for the day.
On the upside I drank all my water and did 30 minutes of low intensity workout.
Now today its time to pay the piper... I gained that pound back. So today I am going to make better choices and I recognize that somtimes I am an emotional eater and will try to pay attention to the signs of an emotional eating attack. I hope my being honest and accountable will help someone else make a better choice today. Keep up the spark
