So I have been AF for 5 days in a row, so i figured last night (our night without kids) i was going to have a few. Well of course a few turned into 5 (better than my usual 6+). But i was okay with this. But i didn't really eat dinner (just went straight for the bottle) so after 5 beers i was quite hungry. I told myself I would just have a little snack. Well a little snack turned into much more emoticon
I don't know what happened. I started off with a serving of Sanitas (tortilla corn chips) but i was eating out of the bag (which is a big no no for me, i usually pre-portion it) so i had a couple servings. Then i went for the halloween candy bowl. I was only going to have one piece (i haven't had candy in a long time). 1 piece turned into a few, then a few more. Then i remembered my husband bought me a Big Dark Chocolate with almonds hershey bar (my fav). And it's been sitting in the fridge for over a week with only one little piece taken out. Well before you know it, i ate half the bar. Then my husband decides to make a frozen pizza (we usually don't eat those but every once in a drunk while we will share one) Well he fell asleep while it was cooking and i couldn't wake him up to eat. So i ate my half.....then i ate his half
emoticon i regretted it as soon as i realized what i had done. I went straight to bed and this morning i told my hubby what i did with my head bowed down in disgusts. He couldn't believe i ate that much junk food.
Well today is a new day, a healthier day:
Breakfast: Mini Bagel, fat free cream cheese, orange juice, colby cheese stick & coffee
Lunch: Turkey & Swiss on wheat bread w/ mayo, cottage cheese and Campbell's Healthy Request Tomato soup
Snack: Monster Muscle Energy Shake (yes i know energy drinks are bad for me, im slowly weaning off of them, but this was has 25 grams of protein and it satisfies my chocolate craving)
Dinner: (as long as i can stick with it) leftover Spaghetti w/ turkey meatballs and sauce, green beans and milk. I might even make a slice of garlic cheese wheat bread

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! Make healthy choices! You can still have treats as long as you use portion control! (i think im telling myself this more than anything)

    Oh, man, yeah--we've all been there.

    I know that technically speaking, eating great one day doesn't make up for eating terribly another...but the reverse is true, as well! You will find your stride, you will figure it out.
    And in the meantime, I can recommend a few satisfying healthier snacks that have satisfied some serious tipsy munchies for me: Wasa crackers with cheese (I usually go for the spreadable Laughing Cow cheese, or a reduced-fat string cheese...could also do cottage cheese); cold grapes (seriously, omg); light popcorn; for pizza munchies, do a mini bagel or a tortilla pizza (I very highly recommend Flat Out wraps or La Tortilla Factory low carb high fiber wraps); one of my faves is a homemade quesadilla...as long as you measure (and use veggies like peppers or mushrooms or whatever), you'll be good!
    I wish you so very much luck--just know that you CAN do this, though!! Have you thought about cutting out alcohol for a month, to try to re-train your body? That's what I did, when I first started...less due to munchies and more due to calories, but it definitely helps get you on track! emoticon
