I have no idea why but I went right off the rails today (it's 6pm here in the UK).
I haven't tracked it all yet but I've eaten 3 (yes, three) brownies which I didn't even like, a snacksize Mars bar (that was before the brownies and all the rest and was an attempt to stave the desire for sweetness) and a bar of white baking chocolate and 20 Gourmet Jelly Beans.
Right, now that I've confessed that here are a few things that spring to mind:
- I can't undo what's been done but I can and WILL decide what's going to happen next
- I tried to have a good lunch by making parsnip soup. I made it, ate it and then tracked and to my shock it was 200cals! SOOOO not worth the 200cals!
That threw me of course for the afternoon.
- We haven't got any grocery money until Monday so we're eating out of the pantry/freezer which is fantastic for our budget and I am so proud of myself for sticking to the budget and forcing myself to be creative with what we've got on hand.
- what I really wanted today was marshmallow fluff. It might have been better to make that (can't buy it easily here so I make it) and eat it rather than down all the other crap.
Tonight I'm eating french beans and some chicken with a bit of rice.
Tomorrow I'll be making chili from what I've got in the pantry: passata, red beans, sweetcorn and I'll cook some brown rice to have with it.
Back on track.
It's not about falling off, it's about getting back on.
