Day 207

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

Oh, yesterday. Yesterday. Boredom and loneliness and PMS hit so hard after work that it became the Perfect Storm of overeating. It was like I didn't even know who I was. I ate a handful of this and a handful of that and in less than an hour I consumed 908 calories. And I couldn't stop.

Now, looking back, I can think about it. I didn't know what it was at the time. Now I do. I was bored. I hadn't planned for anything when I got home. I was lonely - I hadn't seen my friends at the dogpark and my husband was at a meeting so I was alone in an empty lonely house. And I was PMS'ing major time, to the point that I woke up pretty much crying for no reason this morning.

Of course, it was too late in my realizations to do anything about it last night. But I can learn. I can stop next time and ask myself what in the world is going on before I put that first chip in my mouth. And then I can take action. I can leave the house. I can call a friend. I can watch a dvd. I don't have to do that.

Yesterday's stats:

Exercise: 105 minutes (!!)
Steps: 14,844 (obviously I did some things right!)
Calories: 2,413
Protein: 80

I'm, I'm have a super good day today. Keep my calories on the low side. I had a 380 calorie breakfast and a 460 calorie lunch and no snack because I wasn't hungry. There's nice chicken and veggies in the crockpot for dinner and I'll put aside a couple of hundred calories for whatever treat they have at bible study. And just like that, with a little planning, I'm back on track.
