One two-bite brownie, after a business meeting when I'm cleaning up the snacks. (Which of course I didn't eat during the business meeting . . . ).
A couple extra brazil nuts while my supper soup is heating in the microwave.
A second Friday night glass of wine . . . and then, what the heck, a couple ounces of cheese.
And then I'll see I've been over my allotted calories for four days in a row on the nutrition tracker. That's MY allotted calories which is about 1400 a day . . . what I can eat and maintain my weight, about 10 calories per pound per day.
Hmmmm. Pants feeling tighter.
OK. Who'm I fooling?? Not "me".
I've been back at my 1400 calories again for four days.
At the gym yesterday and reminded myself of just how hard and how long I work on the rowing machine to burn 230 calories.
Went to a business meeting last evening -- cocktail hour with nibblies. Ordered a Virgin Mary (tomato juice, rimmer, seasonings: no alcohol). Departed after socializing (really like these colleagues) but before the nibblies temptation got too intense!
Gym scheduled again tomorrow morning.
Not not not going to let it sneak up on me. Not happening!!
