Food Hangover

Thursday, January 31, 2013

I was bad yesterday...really bad. I bet I ate 3,000 or more calories. I don't know for certain because I didn't track it and I don't want to.

It all started when my son ate my last banana for breakfast. That meant I didn't get my banana in before my workout. Such a small, silly thing but it did throw me off. Then when we got home and had lunch I was starving. I started out good. I made a burrito out of a whole wheat tortilla and some eggs and peppers (not bad) but I as still hungry so I ate some crackers and hummus (again not bad) but I was still starving so I broke down and ate some chips (oh, my evil nemesis) but I only ate about 2 oz. so again not bad... and then I ate a piece of pizza and everything went downhill from there.

It was like watching a bad accident in slow motion. There was just this domino effect and each thing I put in my mouth was worst than the last. To make matters worse, I ate a whopper and fries for dinner. I figured I had already blown it so I just needed to get the food cravings out of my system and start over today.

Then last night the pay back started. I felt gassy and bloated. I was so tired that all I wanted to do yesterday afternoon was sleep. I began to realize that the way I used to eat was destroying me and I don't want to feel like that anymore. I had a food hangover.

So today I started up my healthy eating again with honey nut cheerios for breakfast (with my yummy banana) and I treated myself to a california roll for lunch. I'm tracking every point and I threw myself into this mornings workout. I have a renewed commitment to say goodbye to my old eating habits and continue to work out and get this fat body back into shape. No more food hangovers for me.
