blowing it all at Bunko
Friday, November 16, 2012
Ok, I have dreaded this, but I decided I needed to blog about it, to teach myself a lesson. I went to Bunko, where there's always an abundance of food and goodies, and my self control went out the window. I tracked it all (was way over my calories, and it was painful to track) and I paid for it on the scale. I think it is going to take me at least a week to get back to where I was before that night and those poor choices.
So--when i do something like this, I like to drill it into my head, so that at least I learn from it. And what I have learned from this unfortunate Bunko experience is that
The food I ate wasn't worth a week of my progress.
From now on when I'm tempted like that (e.g. Thanksgiving maybe?) I'm going to ask myself, "Is this food worth a week of progress?" Most likely the answer will be no, and I'll be able to make more reasonable choices.
I'm all for eating a few bites of something really tasty, but that decision includes thinking it through and setting limits and also distinguishing what's really tasty and what isn't.
Anyway, have a great weekend!
