A third of my calories today was given over to a coffee eclair at morning tea.
My partner went out for an early morning ride, and brought home 'a treat' to have with our morning coffee.
I was not able to say no, as the words that accompanied the eclair were as sweet.
Doing some quick mental arithmetic, I figured lunch and dinner were light meals and that I would go without my snacks for the day - which I did. But it was not until I came to put this surprise morsel into the nutrition tracker, just how much I was giving up - a third of my calories for the day!
I was hungry before dinner, but kept drinking water while preparing the meal. Now sitting at my computer, and putting my bag together for work tomorrow, I am continuing to drink water. But now I'm worrying whether I am going to be up and down out of bed during the night to go to the toilet.
Oh well, another learning experience, albeit a tasty one.
