Yesterday, I had to travel for work, which meant meals away from home, and no walking. I did ok for breakfast, but the person I was with wanted lunch at mcdonald's. I caved to advertizing and had a new quater pounder. Not worth the hype, or the 610 calories. I tracked it on my phone ap. Snacks were these yummy peanut butter whole grain cluster cookies, for 130 a pop. Worth the calories, very yummy. But I ate more than one. Dinner was a sandwhich from a gas station. totally desperation, I needed to eat something to take my dinner meds and had no other options. I drove back to the office, putting in a 15 hour day and dragged myself home to find pizza. The unsupportive husband said "I didn't expect you for dinner.", which explains why he had the forbidden food, and left it out for temptation. I caved. I ate over 3,000 calories yesterday. The part of the relapse plan is that I tracked it all. Now I need to work on the other parts.
1) Be prepared. I could have packed my lunch, dinner, snack in a cooler, rather than depend on the options while traveling and with someone else.
2) HALT. I should not have let myself get H hungry( snack) A Angry (Pizza) L Lazy (the whole day) or T tired (pizza).
Today's Spark coach encouraged me to learn from it and move on. So, today, I'm eating my fruits and vegetables, drinking my water and getting my steps in. MOVING ON.
