Way Over

Friday, November 30, 2012

Wow. I need to carry a calorie list with me. I had NO idea that I would go so WAY OVER calorie wise. I took the kids to the movies and hadn't eaten lunch or breakfast for that matter. I had a slice of pizza, a coke and some nachos. Dinner was a stouffers turkey and dressing dinner. I was thinking, I'd be close to my daily allotment, BUT no, I was over. All because I was basing my choices on some assumptions. On the other hand, what do they do with food at restaurants and the like that cause the calories to go up so much higher than home prepared foods. In the past, I would likely have gotten discouraged and ate desserts since the day was a loss but not tonight.

    Ditto! I always carry almonds or an apple or even a 100 calorie pack of cheez-its with me. Anything low cal that will ward off hunger. Movie fare and restaurants will KILL your calorie limits quick, fast and in a hurry! Stay strong. emoticon emoticon

    I've found that the best way to combat this situation (which has happened all too frequently in my own life too!) is to always carry something that's portable, non-perishable, and healthy in my purse. For me, it's a Clif Bar. They seem to fill me up (almost) enough to be considered a meal replacement. Knowing I have my healthy snack/meal on me at all times makes it harder to give in and buy junk food when I'm starving. Hope this helps you too! emoticon
