Well, I'm not going to say yesterday was a COMPLETE disaster... but it was certainly a heavy eating day. I would go so far as to say I binged, but at least it wasn't the depressing kind of binge where I'm all alone stuffing myself to fill a void. I just started eating junk and couldn't stop all evening!
I had a great salmon chowder for lunch after a 6.2 mile hike/run. But the evening began with about 3 servings of peanut M&Ms that were at my friend's house, calling my name. Then we went to the Farmer's Market and got a fresh apple pie.
And fudge.... lots and LOTS of fudge.
Here's the Pumpkin Fudge
And here's the Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge
I did end up getting a bag of those BBQ chips but thank God they've changed the recipe and I didn't like them!
I also went to a new grocery store they had opened and had lot of free samples of stuff (cheese, mostly).
I'm currently in the process of working to rid myself of the food hangover. I haven't eaten that much sugar in so long. And it was A LOT of sugar!! I'm drinking lots of water and getting ready to go for another run/hike (hopefully I can do 6.2 miles again this morning).
I am anticipating a challenge tonight but it was to be expected. I'm meeting some friends for half-price fish and chips at a pub for dinner. So my plan is to exercise, eat really light all day, and then try to keep the night moderate.
Excessive eating challenges are inevitable for the next several days. So from now til after Thanksgiving I'll be working to just try to not let the eating get out of hand, and to balance it with NOT eating while not socializing. And also exercising to counter the excessive eating.
After all... that's why I signed up for the Turkey Trot run~ So I could eat!
Highlights: I got a REALLY good night of sleep last night which I desperately needed since I'm an introvert and I've been socializing a lot during my visit.
Lowlights: The family drama situation is really bad. It's a long story so I won't go into it, but it's causing a lot of depression for me.
