Not the way to start the day!
Thursday, February 16, 2012
I was up late with my mom last night. She has been in a lot of pain so I stayed up later which turned out to be not such a good idea for me. I had tried brushing my teeth, drinking more water, ... lots of things that were posted to help stop the late night cravings.
In the end, I just wasn't strong enough. I ate a banana with 2 tbsp peanut butter and 3...yes 3..at least, servings of boston baked beans candy!! 508 calories past midnight but before I even went to bed!
Not a great way to start the day!! So...it's only 2 in the afternoon and I am down to just over 500 calories for the day. I still have dinner and my worst time of the day...at night!! If I lived alone, I would go to bed early but mom doesn't like that. She doesn't like being alone.
Trying to be proactive and think ahead...having a salad for dinner but I know that won't fill me up. I don't like salad so that's why I can't eat enough to fill me up! In fact I have to eat reduced fat wheat thins or grilled chicken with it!
Also making a fruit salad. I am determined not to go over my calories today!! Actually I need to eat less than 500 calories because I didn't count the little boston baked beans so may have had more than 3 servings!!
I have learned my lesson..I hope! I will not give in and waste that many calories after midnight before going to bed again!!!! If I have to eat, it will be something with much less calories and better for me!!
