Falling Off the Wagon


Thursday, February 21, 2013

I had a good friend visit me from out of town today. We went to a Chinese buffet. I had a Mai Tai and ate enough to put me 300 calories over my daily goal. I skipped dinner. The good news is...I resisted anything fried and no desert. AND I didn't throw in the towel and continue overeating because I had 'blown it for the day'. I actually remained within my daily goals for protein, fat and carbs. So what... I indulged a little. I'm proud to say that I did so with control and moderation. Back to the program tomorrow!!

    I know too, from past experience, that the Chinese Buffets are a calorie-laden place for sure. But also, I know that it can be doable, with choosing lots of veggies, unbreaded meats and veggies, and watch the sauces in everything. Filling up on the lettuce, etc., is a good thing too. You did exactly what I do too, when I go to one, I turn it into two meals and call it a day afterwards. Yes and lots of water afterwards too for the blessed sodium!!

    I say job well done only going over by 300 calories at a Chinese buffet!!! Those places can kill your calorie count with just one or two dishes! You'll probably see some gain the next couple of days, just from sodium - so drinks lots of water!

    Nicely done, it is perfectly acceptable (and necessary) to let loose once in a while! The important thing is that you realized you haven't done much damage after all, this is not a fatal mistake to your program, it is just one day!
