Blew It!

Monday, January 27, 2014

Jeez, I was all motivated and doing great and then.... What?!

Yesterday I made a breakfast quinoa dish that had caught my eye online. Well, I should have calculated calories and portion size ahead of time. I measured it all out before combining it into my bowl, but didn't figure calories until after I ate it, and it was something crazy like 600 calories. Ack!

Well, I figured I'd just have to eat lighter the rest of the day.

Lunch. I made burgers. No problem. I really didn't think I did too badly, again, until I entered it all into Sparkpeople. Bad news.

So that left me with a really light supper. Ok. I was making pizza for the family and intended to have my light supper after they ate. Right..... Then I thought What The Heck I'm having one small piece of pizza, which became two, which became three.....
I was over by like 500 calories yesterday. Sheesh. And it was all just kind of brainless.

Back in the saddle today. My usual Kashi breakfast, a smaller portion of the quinoa dish for lunch, a small snack mid-afternoon snack, RUN, and a light supper.

    No biggie! You'd have to do that seven days in a row to gain a pound. We're not perfect!

    Definitely a learning experience. It's always great to try new foods, so hopefully you can take what you learned and apply it for next time you try something new. Track first if it's new and modify the recipe as needed to make it fit within your range for the day.
