Some more potholes...

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

So I traveled yesterday and today. I still hadn't studied the McDonald's menu, but I had looked over the nutrition the last time I looked up my quarter pounder and this time I chose a grilled chicken snack wrap and a fruit and yogurt parfait (and baby gave me maybe 10 of her fries). Yay Me! I definitely did not eat balanced, but I kept my calories in check yesterday. Then today we hopped back in the truck to come home (about a 4 1/2 hour trip straight drive time but with stops we were on the road 6 hours), and the wheels fell off my will power. I "think" I was just bored...bored of being stuck in the truck and driving. I had the remainder of a loaf of bread in the truck and ate four slices at one point when I wasn't even feeling that hungry. I ate some chocolate I had, I think for mostly the same reason. I stopped at Tim Horton's in Houlton to get a coffee and also took 10 Timbits, 7 of which I ate. Ugh! Thankfully I am home now, I ate broccoli and cauliflower for supper to try to give my body something nutritious today. At least I managed to avoid the soda yet again. It was calling to me while driving. Yeah, ultimately I think it was fatigue and boredom that got to me. So now it's time to pick myself up, brush off the dust, and get back on the horse.

By the way...79 days (more than 11 weeks) soda free.

    Congrats on being 'soda-free'!!!! I believe it's really important to focus on the positive strides you continue to make so you don't let the not-so-great-ones get you down. I can relate to eating out of boredom--especially while traveling in the car. I guess it stems from when we used to go on family vacations when I was a kid and that's when my mom always let us have the best sweets/treats we never got to eat at home. I'm still trying to break myself of that habit! Anyway, you definitely have the right attitude about picking yourself up, dusting yourself off and keep moving forward. I say, 'never look back'!! emoticon

    Congrats on the soda fee run!!! You are really racking up the days! Keep up the good work!

    As for the food, we all have those moments when our boredom gets the better of us. You were doing a lot of driving, who wouldn't be bored. You have the right attitude, just start over today.

    As a thought, I have found that a peppermint patty makes a super delicious treat. They are only 140 calories and fairly low on fat. If I eat in small bites it lasts a bit to.

    Hope today is a great day!!

    We all have bad days. Some of us more than others.

    Great job on being soda free. I know one day I will be too.
