Woops, learned a lesson

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

So, yesterday I brought a healthy, pretty low cal lunch (salad with egg salad on top, a string cheese, mini bell peppers). I also generally dont eat anything in the morning. Don't judge me, its just not my thing, and this has worked pretty well for a lot of my "successful" periods.
BUT, yesterday was dumb. Maybe it was slightly to do with the run I did the night before, but by 4 I was HUNGRY.

By the time I got home after work I was STARRRRVING. I ate a half a sandwich. then I ate left over chili. and cheese. and chips. and chips and salsa. and chips with some cheese melted on top. and 3 cookies. and then I stopped.

I clocked in at 1900 hundred cal yesterday (estimate), which I'm not going to beat myself up over. I mean, I didn't order pizza or something like I am a little inclined to do when I am in the ravenous mode.

So. yeah. Lesson learned a bit. I probably need to start eating a little something in the AM, and then I need to bring some additional snacks or bigger lunches. I wish we were allowed to eat in our offices, I feel like that would make this a lot easier.

Today I brought some left over chili, a few chips for topping, 2 hard boiled eggs, and mini peppers. I'll monitor the situation and avoid DANGER ZONE eating again. :)

    Do you drink much water? Keeping hydrated goes a long way to helping you stay full between meals.

    Not allowed to eat in your office? Say what? emoticon I would not get ANY work done then, eating is a constant for me! (It's also important not to let your blood sugar crash!)

    Today is my cheat day, so I odrered 2 roadt beef sandwiches AND 2 orders of fries from Arby's! LOL I don't think what you did was bad at all! Treat your body better! Eat more, and definitely try to incorporate something for breakfast, even if it's simply water!!! emoticon

    I don't eat in the morning either and find if I do I'm hungry all day! Not sure how to balance the two. I'm glad you posted this, I've had those days too and as I was reading it I was nodding my head and thinking 'Me Too'! emoticon
