We had company arrive today, and spent the day with them.
We showed them around to the local beach sights, then I went kayaking with one of them.
Before dinner, I nibbled on peanuts.
After dinner I allowed myself the small piece of key lime pie.
I also had some of the red, white, and blue trifle I made with homemade whipped cream, blueberries and strawberries.
I did not stop during the day to track my food while company was here. There was no convenient time for that - and it would have been awkward to do so.
In the evening, when I did track the food, I saw that I was WAY over my limit. Not good.
Okay, so what is the lesson? If you cannot track - then eat less.
The peanuts and the whipped cream were the main culprits here -- as was the key lime pie.
I should have known better.
Just don't eat peanuts. They are bad news. Have some carrots or sliced red peppers instead.
Tomorrow, I will walk in the morning with one of my friends. That's good.
Tomorrow, I will be more careful with my food.
I read something a SP friend wrote, and I want to use it myself.
She said that every day she wanted to wake up the next morning feeling good about the food choices she had made the day before.
Tomorrow that will not be the case for me.
But it will be the next day.
It's a great goal to set for myself: In the morning when I wake up, I want to feel really good about the food choices I made the day before.
