Broke one of my own cardinal rules today

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

I stopped at McDonalds for a mocha. I know they're ridiculously empty calories and sugar and it's a gateway food to other even worse things like hash browns and bacon egg and cheese bagels. I virtually had my entire days allowance in that one meal. Salads for lunch and dinner. :)

I had a bout of insomnia last night and I was running late so I just stopped on my way to work. I broke my caffeine ban too but I'm not as upset about that because the articles I have read lately seem to support having a little caffeine is actually good for you contrary to older studies.

I tracked every single bit of it though and although it isn't pretty it will give me pause next time I give myself permission to eat like the old me. I'll say this, I'm not feeling so good but I think it's a combination of both the food and the lack of sleep.

    emoticon I think I would not make it through the day without caffeine....seriously. I have coffee (from home) and add a little sugar free creamer and splenda....It it gets cold before I drink it all, I just pour it over ice and viola, iced coffee. yummy and not bad on calories. Try it sometime and you can save a few calories. emoticon

    It has been all over the news today that lack of sleep can lead to overeating. I am proof of that. I used to work long hours with little sleep and gained a lot of weight. As long as you are tracking everything you will be in good shape. Once you track you hate to waste your calories on something that has a lot. Keep up the good work.
