I ate the whole...

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

Half gallon of ice cream. Yep that was my dinner while watching White Collar. Turns out the half gallon was 16 1/2 cup servings.

Do you think was partly because of the 4.5 hrs of sleep last night? I was able to stay awake for the class easily. In fact, I felt good about all I was quickly picking up. Then when the teacher said, "Now we are getting to why you guys are here". THEN he started clicking on tabs and NOT saying what he was clicking on. I was getting upset with him.

One of processes, there were 4 different ways to accomplish it. And darn if 3 of the windows looked practically identical, argh! At least I was not the only one to get lost, my boss included.

One more observation. The teacher had this THING, nervous habit? Maybe, annoying, DEFINITELY! With his open palm he would rub his nose side-to-side about 4x and then slide it up his face onto his hair. I had never seen this motion before. Thank goodness (and he did it constantly) only during the morning session. That's why I was thinking it was a nervous thing because after the break I didn't see him do it again, yeay!

Good night, I am off to sleep.

    My food choices are not so good when I am tired, stressed or sick. I also have many years of using food to relax. I am getting better about only eating when I am actually hungry and eating more fruits, veggies and lean meats. I stopped buying foods I can't resist and only stock some low sugar/low fat treats that I don't feel compelled to binge on.

    I would explore more deeply into why you ate the whole carton of ice cream. If it was not an emotional issue and you just ate it all because you sat down with the carton and a spoon, I would try measuring servings and putting the rest away. Eat the serving with a smaller spoon so you get more bites and savor each bite so your brain gets satisfied.

    Don't beat yourself up for this mistake. Make a plan for tomorrow and set yourself up for success. Make the next decision a healthy one and move on from there. A couple good days of eating healthy and exercising will "erase" that ice cream mistake.

    Hang in there. It is about "progress not perfection". We are learning as we go and part of the process is to fall down and get back up again.

    Best wishes to you!
