Went over on my calories but...

Saturday, May 04, 2013

I'm not mad at myself. I've been doing really well the last six weeks, being within my calorie range or close to it. I decided to have some Cuban for dinner. There is a fabulous place near my house. I got pulled pork, rice and beans. I hadn't planned on getting it for dinner so I didn't have a ton of calories left but you know what? I enjoyed every.single.bite.

So I went over, I knew I would but I did track it all. It was eye-opening to see the total calorie count. I learned that yes, it's okay to go over here and there. Still I do not want to do this regularly! I'm going to get back within my calorie range tomorrow. Next time I get Cuban food, I will be sure to plan better for it.

I also got my workout in.

I see a lot of people endlessly beating themselves up for splurges. I know for me to succeed, I can't do that.

¡Viva Cuba!

    I agree with all of you. I strayed but am back on track. Had a good calorie/nutrition day today.

    Way to go! Being true to yourself and logging the calories is what it's all about. You should never feel deprived of anything in your life. It's just a healthy balance that needs attention.

    Guilt is the most fattening emotion. It MAKES you eat more and is very toxic to the endocrine system. (That word can't be right? Eng is not my first language, but you get the idea? It's bad for the glands)
    So good for you!

    Exceeding your calorie count once in a while is not something to be upset about. It happens. The trick is to not let it bother you and get right back to your routine.

    Good for you.
