I feel like I'm in a confession booth right now. Forgive me for gluttony, for I ate too much yesterday. I've been craving a crunchy savory snack lately. There was an unopened box of Brown Rice Triscuits in the kitchen, Tomato Basil flavor, Yummy. I got it the other day because I like to eat them with tuna salad for lunch.

I stayed up late watching TV last night and I had a weak moment. I busted into the Triscuits and ate about 4 servings, (24 crackers 520 calories), which put me about 400 calories over the top end of my range. It doesn't take much thought to understand why that happened. There wasn't anything on TV that I really wanted to watch and I was tired. I let my guard down when what I should have done is just gone to bed and I would have been fine.

There is something positive in spite of my mindless munching incident. At least I didn't eat the whole box of Triscuits, which is what I usually would have done, so it wasn't entirely mindless. Today is a new day. I got my game back on and I'm feeling strong. At least one bad day isn't going to ruin the whole week.

    I experience the same type of situation from time to time. I chalk it up to just "one of those times" & don't beat myself up about it. The good news is that those times have come further & further apart over my years here at SP. I hope it will prove the same for you.

God bless!

    If everyone is honest, we all have those times. My biggest downfall is frozen yogurt. We don't have ice cream in the house anymore but as dh needs calcium, anything that will help him, I try to keep some. I reckon I need to just have kinds that I don't like in the house and that would help me not "taste" it.

    I find that when I'm tired I eat. I have a motto go to bed stay in bed. It's easier said than done.
