I was doing so well. Healthy dinner: grilled steak and big green salad,
my husband offered to go for a walk with me (2 mi. in 45 min.), and I even got in a little weight training
I was ready for bed but I was in the middle of watching a TV show. It was a comedy and I was enjoying it....but they kept eating and/or talking about food....
I checked my calories for the day...I had room....I made a grilled cheese.
They had cake on the show...I wanted cake...I didn't have cake...oh wait....
My husband had a little pound cake to go with his strawberries, my daughter had some left over frosting from making cupcakes the other day....
Yup...there went my numbers for the day
Good thing I got that little bit of extra exercise in!
But here is the beauty of it...Today is a new day! I get to start over. I can eat a little less, work out a little more, take steps to undo the damage.
One evening wont ruin me. In fact, I deserve to take a diet rest every now and again. I just wish I had saved it to splurge on something really wonderful instead of the junk hanging out in my kitchen.
By TRACKING my little evening escapade, I can see that it wasn't as bad I as I was making it out to be (it was still about 800 cal of bad though
), and now I know what I need to do today to get back on track and have a good day/week.
The other thing I learned...If I had just gone to bed when I realized I was tired none of this would have happened. I wasn't hungry, I wasn't eating for comfort...I was tired and I let the subtle influences of a TV show affect my actions. Today I think I need to watch a super hero movie
