The dilema

Saturday, May 25, 2013

So my birthday was yesterday. When one of my neighbors found out I wasn't able to have a party or cake or any of what she deems is appropriate celebratory activities, she decided to make me a cake. A Betty Crocker Strawberry cake with an ENTIRE container of vanilla frosting on it. So the decision came to "Ok, yeah I'll be passing some of this around. " but how much do I eat now?! I broke down and ate 2 pieces today, than in a moment of disgust I tossed the rest of it to my 4yo who devoured it. So according to my spark info I've eaten almost 1500 calories of pure sugar and crap within 18 hours. Problem? Im hungry. I've gone over my limit but its here, 8 o'clock, with dusk just falling and I'm hungry. So... the dilema, do I eat and throw myself WAY over or do I deprive myself tonight. Either way, tomorrow I'm back on my meals. /sigh. I hate days like this.

Edit: So I went the eating so I didn't feel like I was startving route and ended up eating some cinnamon cookies, a 2nd helping of baked mac and cheese w/ broccoli and added some sausages. When I looked back, if I hadn't eaten that cake, I would have only been over by a couple hundred cals rather than that 1200ish I'm at now. Now, I've got it all out of the house, I've made plans for some serious park time with Ronan and a good str routine when we get home.

Happy Sunday

    so for the rest of the week, you eat 100 calories less and you'll be fine. focusing too much on the daily total without looking at the weekly or monthly totals gets you very close to 'all or nothing' perfectionist talking. bad thoughts there.
