I came home feeling blah. Work was busy and when I came home at lunch to walk the dog, I had a complete snack meltdown. I guess it was much later than usual and I didn't eat enough for lunch - so when I got home, I was looking for stuff to eat. Instead of taking the dog for the usual walk, we just played in the backyard for abit. Then I snacked down on 2 rice crispy squares (200 cal), one of the kids snack pack brownies (100 cal), some smart food (200 cal) and a tablespoon of peanut butter (80 more). What the heck - so random and not my usual triggers, but there it was so... gobble gobble gobble.
Well, this weighed heavy on me (no pun intended) and I started to have my own little pity party as the day went on. Boo Bex - you are not even good enough to keep this up for a month - let alone forever. So I cooked dinner, had a glass of wine and was almost going to just pack it in for the day. But instead, I decided to own my snack insanity and I tracked it all. Well, since I had eaten so lightly at lunch and had a healthy breakfast and dinner, I didn't actually go over the high end of my calories. This made me start to feel a little bit better - so instead of reaching for a second glass of wine, I reached for the water. Not proud of my little binge, and I have learned that I need to eat properly at lunch so I don't come home feeling like a scavenger!
As the evening ticked on, I got very comfortable on the couch. I did NOT want to take the dog out for a walk. It's cold out there. But...it's 2 of my fast break goals - walk the dog daily and exercise 20 minutes per day. So...I shook it off andI DID IT. I didn't want to, but I did. So there, I have officially turned this day around and I am going to bed feeling good instead of like a failure.
Weigh in is Wednesday. I am only looking for one pound this week since I lost 3 last week. 1 pound will keep me on track for my goals.
