A Slip Up
Tuesday, June 09, 2015
Today, Jon called and asked me to lunch. This was an unusual occasion, as we rarely dine out unless it is date night. We went to Buffalo Wild Wings, and I was pretty excited because I had only ever been there once, and I am awesome at trivia.
Unfortunately, I am not nearly so good at prethinking my eating. After the meal I dutifully entered my intake into the SparkPeople Android App. Lo and behold, I had eaten nearly an entire days worth of calories in one meal.
This would not be nearly so bad if I had not eaten yet today, but of course I had. Needless to say, I will not be having dinner tonight, but I am disappointed in myself.
I'm not sure it is sensible to be disappointed, because I did enter everything and although I didn't check before eating, I didn't eat anything their website says has wheat or gluten. I think I am going to decide to be proud of myself for not entering into a state of denial, instead of mentally punishing myself for backsliding on my restaurant policy.
If y'all have any advice on how to avoid happy eating/restaurant foibles in the future, I'd be glad to hear it!
