Struggling with my Calorie Intake

Friday, June 22, 2012

I'm struggling with my calories today. Just thought I'd throw that out there. Some days I can be fairly certain before they're over that I've eaten too much and am not going to make the calorie count. Today is one of those days.

I'm sitting here at a little after 5 pm, and I only have 194 calories left for the day. I'm bummed out because it feels like I did everything right today. I'm not sure where all the calories came from. I wasn't snacking mindlessly. I ate plenty of freggies. It's just that, somehow, my count's too high.

Maybe I will be able to make it out for a walk today or for a stroll on the treadmill at the gym. That would be good. Just gotta keep moving forward. Can't let what I put in my mouth already get me down. Just gotta make healthier choices from here on out...

    We are all repeating the same mantra because it's true and it works. We have those days where the calories get away from us. Drink more water, and be sure to get out for that walk. Tomorrow is a fresh start, and we are all still here because it takes effort, and yet there are rewards.

  Tomorrow is another new day. You'll get it. It just takes practice. Don't beat yourself up over it. You're worth more than that. Forgive yourself and move on. emoticon

    I didn't make a very good choice tonight. It could have been ten times worse, but I know my scale will probably not move or move up a tiny bit tomorrow. And the 12 chips with 4 T of artichike spinach dip (in addition to my huge could-have-been-more-healthy salad) is not worth that feeling I will have tomorrow. So that is what I am taking from my experience this evening. It sounds little but the fact that I am THINKING AT ALL about the process and what I am doing means huge progress is being made and I think you should consider that a positive too! You are trying to figure out a solution for your daily calories and you will! Caring is half the battle!!!! We will get there! :)

    Hey you know one of the things I like about SP is the freedom to make mistakes. I had an off day too. I stayed within my calories but I'm trying to keep from having meals that cause blood sugar spikes and have a more 'even' day. Today I had a huge dinner, and my other meals were too small and not entirely healthy. Oh well, I'll try and do better tomorrow. That's just what we have to do.
