Have you ever sat down to track your food and thought your food tracker might just explode?
I just tracked all the food I ate after work yesterday. The feeling I had was like blowing up a balloon, I can just see my tracker growing bigger and bigger and bigger!
After working 70 hours last week, I came home yesterday after an 8 hour day (I call that my short days) and put away the groceries I had bought on the way home.
Decided to eat a few potato chips....
DH called and had totally changed all of what I thought was our plans for the evening. I thought I was going to see my granddaughter (it was her 10th birthday).
Turns out he had a meeting at work at 6 and was coming home and bringing a coworker with him, then they would go back to work for the meeting. Didn't I know they had this meeting every three months?!!!!! UH.... NO!
The rest of the story is I prepared supper, He showed up without the coworker, he went back to his meeting and I watched tv and snacked my way into oblivion, just because.....
The reasons don't matter really, I just feel like I can't cope at times and I love to eat snack foods! Spicy peanut mix, raisins, a fiber one protein bar, laffy taffy candy.
This morning I tracked all the stuff I ate and was surprised to see I only went over my calorie goal by 500 calories.
Even though I thought I had really went over my calorie target, I can live with that. I haven't snacked mindlessly in several months, so back on track today and by the way, That Laffy taffy was really good!
