Saturday, my hubby and I busted our rumps on a remodel project all day. We had breakfast, skipped lunch (I know...) but had a reasonable dinner. We were both still a little munchies when we finally sat down that evening and I was still 200 under on my calories when hubby grabbed a brand new bag of Doritos, opened it, and sat down next to me. Initially, I thought, "oh no!" but I still had some calorie room to even the bottom of my range and was too tired to get up and grab something better, so I had a couple. Then a couple more. Then a few more. Somewhere in there, hubby got up and went to bed but I was watching a show on Netflix. Two hours later as my show was ending, I hit the bottom of the bag...and realized I'd devoured the whole thing! I think he only took a couple before he wandered away.
It wasn't a little "lunch" sized bag, either. Oh no. It was a full-sized 11-oz bag! Seriously, I thought I had most of my trigger foods ID'd and locked out of the house. And it wasn't even that good.
I did track it and went about 1,000 calories over the top end of my range (not counting any tracked exercise - no idea how to track the work done with the reno...and wouldn't, while it was labor-intensive I never got heart rate high enough that I'd think it would amount to much).
Weigh in is tomorrow so I'll see if and how much damage was done, and Doritos are now on the "do not bring that in here!" list along with most types of ice cream, cakes, and most anything bakery-oriented.
