Bad Day...

Friday, February 02, 2007

Well today has not been a great day for me. I think it started out bad with my "fat free" pancakes and light syrup, which ended up costing me 300 calories and made me feel sick. I didn't have any fruit or anything with it. Then on my way to the dr, I stopped and got my espresso for the first time since starting SP...which I did get nonfat, and half decaf, but still, breakfast was over 500 calories total.

Now that it's 4:15, I had a small lunch and over 500 calories in snacks! I am just having these cravings and starting to get the mindset of "I don't care" and I don't want to go back there. All my snacks have been ok, I made the banana raisin muffins and had a low calorie granola bar. Then I had an apple with light havarti cheese...but I'm almost to my max calories and haven't even had dinner, and feel like I want to eat more NOW! I don't have that much self control and I don't really know what to do.

I even edited my information so that it would let me have more calories!!

I'm going to drink a bunch of water and if we don't end up going to a friend's house for dinner, I'm definitely going to the gym to burn some extra calories for today!

    Sometimes those bad days give you motivation to really kick into your SP program. Don't you think? And, sometimes after it you really keep that streak alive! Your blog gave me motivation!

    We all have bad days when we just don't seem to get full or when we have a 'surprise' birthday celebration at work and calories just add up. I don't freak out. I just do some extra cardio and make sure I get back on track for the next day. This is a lifestyle. It's something we're all learning to do and will practice for the long term so one day, more or less, isn't going to be fatal.

    Allow yourself to be human and know that, from time to time, you will have these days. It's the way you react to them that's most important. And if the pancakes make you sick, don't eat them!
