Good morning friends.
I am feeling a bit discouraged! Yesterday was a great day, I ate good, but I did not get to walk on my lunch like I wanted to. My daughter calls me from school & says that she forgot to bring her basketball jersey with her. It was a MUST that she had it! So, instead of getting to walk, I drove 16 miles to my house & then another 15 or so to the school then 20 back to work. HUGE round trip...that doesn't bother me, that's the joys of parenthood! I told myself right after that phone call that I would go home, fix dinner for Hubbs & B & then go walk the neighborhood for an hour. It was 50 degrees & I was all siked up to put on a hoodie & beanie & head out! I had already done several resistance band excersises at my desk, several wall push ups and squats on my bathroom breaks & even threw in some jump squats when no one was looking! I had this... I was easily going to make up for not walking. Plus, an older gentleman that I work with really made my day yesterday by telling me that I look FABULOUS & that he is real proud of me in how well I have done losing weight. That made my day!! So what happened?? CHIPS & HOT SAUCE!! It is my weakness. I made the family taco ring for supper. It is so good!! SOOOO GOOOD! I was planning to go walk while they ate. My husband decided he wanted to go walk with me so I waited. While I waited, I let the chips & salsa get the better of me. I ended up eating enough to fill me up, then had a piece of taco ring on top of that. Then....here is the bad part.... WE DIDN'T GO WALK.
We both used the excuse that it was now too chilly & dark to go & NCIS was coming on. OMG So now I am stupid full & didn't burn hardly any calories for the day. I pouted for the rest of the night over it.
Well, I get up this morning with a better attitude, it was one mess up evening, today is a new day! Although I had to wake up at 4:30am to be able to get my girl to BBall practice on time, I was in a fab mood! Hair looks good, make up looks good, everything went smoothly..YES! I had, what I thought was a good breakfast. Egg whites, 3/4 cup ground sausage, some grape tomatoes, glass of juice & a string cheese stick!! YUMMO..it was so good. Then I go to track my breakfast...after i had already ate it...and HOLY MACARONI...660 calories in 3/4 cup of ground pork sausage.
I never knew, never even thought to look. It was already cooked from a few nights ago, so there was no package to double check. WOW...so my breakfast ended up being over 700 calories. DARN.
My plan? Well, do the best I can today. I will do the normal bathroom excersises, drink my water, walk on lunch & both breaks, & go to the gym tonight. I may even stay an hour instead of my normal 30 minutes in the circuit room.
Now that I have gotten all of this off of my chest...I feel a little better. I just know it's going to be discouraging again when i get hungry in a couple of hours. I brought good foods, but still!!!
Hope everyone else has a good day!! Hopefully I can get over this & get my fab mood back!
