Went way off track but am hopping right back on!

Saturday, November 17, 2012

I have no idea why but I went right off the rails today (it's 6pm here in the UK).
I haven't tracked it all yet but I've eaten 3 (yes, three) brownies which I didn't even like, a snacksize Mars bar (that was before the brownies and all the rest and was an attempt to stave the desire for sweetness) and a bar of white baking chocolate and 20 Gourmet Jelly Beans.

Right, now that I've confessed that here are a few things that spring to mind:
- I can't undo what's been done but I can and WILL decide what's going to happen next
- I tried to have a good lunch by making parsnip soup. I made it, ate it and then tracked and to my shock it was 200cals! SOOOO not worth the 200cals!
That threw me of course for the afternoon.
- We haven't got any grocery money until Monday so we're eating out of the pantry/freezer which is fantastic for our budget and I am so proud of myself for sticking to the budget and forcing myself to be creative with what we've got on hand.
- what I really wanted today was marshmallow fluff. It might have been better to make that (can't buy it easily here so I make it) and eat it rather than down all the other crap.

Tonight I'm eating french beans and some chicken with a bit of rice.
Tomorrow I'll be making chili from what I've got in the pantry: passata, red beans, sweetcorn and I'll cook some brown rice to have with it.

Back on track.
It's not about falling off, it's about getting back on.

    What's with the first bite of sugar stuff and off we go uh? Like Lynna just said, we all have days like that. When there's nothing in the house, I've gorged on peanutbutter. We have Jif that has the sugar in it, so I assume it's that sweetness that I'm craving. One tablespoon has led to 5 before. We just have to do like you did and eat a properly the rest of the day. And never ever ever, take that first bite.
