My "dinner" last night was definitely a fail. We went to a show at a country nightclub (Think likeGilly's in Urban Cowboy LOL) and it was super super crowded. While I was in the restroom my BF and his friend went to get food, which was across the huge club. He brought back jalapeno poppers, which I don't like, and a plate of french fries.
So my dinner ended up being 3 bud lights, about half the plate of french fries, and a bowl of rice krispies when I got home at almost 3am. Oh, I had some cheese and crackers before we went at 7pm. Awesome, apparently I'm in college again.
That's not really a failure! Just a learning opportunity! You might want to ask yourself if you were really hungry for that (in which case I see it as perfectly OK) or if you were trying to deal with some stress (which we all are this time of year...if so could you come up with a list of things to do other than handling stress with food?)

Time to stop trying to solve things with food (lack of included) that food won't solve. Food solves one thing: bodily hunger.

I think we've all been there. I know I can't keep stuff like that in the house because I'll do exactly what you did. But, the past is the past and today is a new day.
On Sunday night I was cooking up a pound of italian sausage (which I love) to freeze as I had bought too much for Thanksgiving. I caught myself eating a spoonful of it here, a spoonful of it there. I immediately put it in the bag and in the freezer, despite it being too warm, because I just couldn't stop eating it. I've been doing that a lot lately... freezing stuff that I can't resist. It's not as fun to eat when it's cold and rock hard.
