I decided that my original starting point just didn't go smoothly. I think I needed a slow start before the fast start portion of things. Anyway, the bottom line is that I decided to start again and joined a different Spark people class of...and went with the latest one. That way, my progress should more closely match.
Day one went okay. My oldest got into a car accident. It really could've been much worse than it was. Fortunately, it only involved one car and he didn't get hurt too badly. The car is a loss though and he did get cited, so the ticket was $100. We had to pick him up at the State Police barracks about 45 minutes from home. Then we had to get the car from the towing agent in the city where the accident occurred. That was another $145 (cash only, so there was another trip involved) and another 20 minutes to get there. We needed to get it towed back to our area to see if it could be fixed or not. By the time we got home, we decided pizza for supper and I did eat some chocolate cake and ice cream.
Here's where I did well. While I didn't get a chance to work out at all (part of the stress involved ended up causing a migraine so even if I had the time, I probably would've puked), normally, I would've eaten a ton of junk food. I didn't. I ate some, but not as much as I normally would've.
There were more carbs than I should've eaten, but not by a ton. There were more calories, but again, not by very much. All around yesterday could've been much, much worse.
If anyone has a really cheap car, keep us in mind. We're still paying off the one in the accident. ;)
