A high calorie lesson

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

yesterday was a day of what not to do. I overslept, so I didn't get to spark in the morning, left for work before doing my whole routine, including packing snacks. I thought I had nuts at work, but discovered at 10 am that I was out. Hungry, I fell to temptation and went out to Mexican for lunch. thousands of calories later, I re-affirmed that I really cant do restaurants. then my kids got sick and I had to take them to the doctor ( a course of antibiotics and they will be fine) but it took the three hours I had saved for the gym. Dinner- which I had planned to make taco didn't sound good to anyone and we ate deli. I didn't really eat, but felt guilty feeding them the high fat junk. They loved it. I didn't get my evening routine as the youngest had a band concert. Earlier today, I did my calorie tracker and found that I was about a thousand calories over. So the lesson learned is that I need my routine. I need to get up, get sparking, pack and plan my food. things like the doctor's cant be avoided but I could have made better nutritional choices.

    We all have "bad" days. Yours was a bad day. I loved reading that you have learned from this and will try to avoid it. But, sometimes a mother's day just sucks, especially when we have sick kids. Hope all will even out and kids will be healthy real quick.

    That sucks. I'm sorry you had such a rough day yesterday. Hopefully you won't have to go thru any of that stuff again anytime soon.
