My "Free" Weekend

Monday, July 26, 2010

I have been tracking my calories very well for the past month (changed my Nutrition to Pre-Diabetic Tracking) and have been doing pretty well. I have been trying to get a wider variety of fruits in as Snacks and staying within the Carb, Protein and Fat ranges (yeah, I know....I'm suppose to be doing that already, but I'm being even more strict now). My appetite has been on an even keel...up until this past weekend (don't know what triggered it). On Friday, I had the biggest urge to eat everything in sight...something that hadn't reared it's ugly head in awhile. I decided to give myself a "Free" weekend and eat what I wanted...maybe as experimentation (if I eat sweet stuff...will it gross me out? will it calm the cravings? will it make me want even more?) Have I learned anything at all about portion control...good foods...bad foods...I certainly hope so! Saturday was an OK day...until that evening. Dealt with a total witch with a capital B on the way to WalMart to carry a movie back to the RedBox. So, I made David stop at Shakes for some ice cream. I rationalized it by saying that if I had to put up with that woman screaming obcenities at me as I walked in the door with my bird flying (which is a story for another time)...I deserved some ice cream. Apparently, he concurred because I got ice cream! Not alot...just enough to make me happy. Yesterday was the bad day. I'll admit it. We had Mexican for lunch (no breakfast) and donuts for dinner. How is that for bad? BAD! But, I'm telling you! Sometimes you just have to get it out of your system!! I have no cravings for sweets today and I am happy to get back on the straight and narrow. I don't feel guilty...I'm just ready to move on.

So, how was your weekend?

    Donuts for dinner? Hm- I can honestly say I have never tried that. Why are you buying donuts to begin with?

    What was it about Saturday Deb? I had one of the highest calorie days I can remember in the last 3-4 years. I had 6300 calories...pudding, jello, brownies, cake, beer, you name it, I slugged it down. I'm right back at it, but man...Saturday was a bump in the road!

    Sometimes we have to remind ourselves in a rather ugly way why we like eating well. All the bloated and yucky feeling after a pig out makes me realize it wasn't nearly as much fun as I thought it would be, nor worth the after affects. And the next pig out isn't quite so bad because I DID learn my lesson a little bit!

    Mine was about the same as yours!! I ate what I wanted and ate out twice! But I am right back at it no worries!!

    My guess is that you still didn't eat as much as you might have prior to a month of healthy eating.
