A bad day happened - Thoughts on the morning after...

Thursday, June 14, 2007

Well, I'm having a morning where it's hard to wake-up and I'm dealing with my food mistakes from the night before with a slightly upset tummy now.

Yesterday started out well; I did some stretching after getting out of bed, even though I wasn't going to have time for exercise before my first job interview of the day. I had a healthy breakfast and, after getting dressed, went to my interview. It went well, but I had tons of time before my second interview, so I figured I would have lunch while I was downtown since the next interview was relatively close to where I was at that point.

I went to Steak 'N Shake, that, in and of itself, isn't so bad. I had the Deluxe Garden Salad with low-fat ranch dressing. However, I misjudged the calories on the next item. I had the lowest calorie Fruit 'N Frozen Yogurt shake they had, banana. I forgot that, even though it's the lowest one in calories, it's still close to 500 calories for the whole thing and I consumed it all (didn't discover my misjudgment until I got home later).

I then went to the drugstore to pick up my prescription for which I placed a refill order the night before using their website. They didn't have it and finally discovered that the reason they didn't fill it was because I needed to have more refills authorized by my doctor. Would have been nice for them to inform me of that when I placed my order. Especially since I had NO PILLS left. It's for my Paxil CR; it's taken for my anxiety. I've been a lot more calm since being on it and my temper has improved greatly (according to my

I explained this to the pharmacist who arranged for me to have a couple of pills to tide me over until they received the authorization from my doctor. I called my doctor's office while I was still in the drugstore so I could get them to authorize the refill, but was told I had to leave my request on the voice mail.

Long story short, I left in a foul mood, drove home angry and yelled at everyone who got in my way on my way here. It's a good thing my husband wasn't home when I got here; let's just say it wouldn't have been pretty.

When I got home, I ate the last three or so servings of the Edy's No Sugar Added Vanilla Ice Cream with an unmeasured amount of Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Syrup. A six tender serving of Tyson Breaded Chicken Nuggets with an unmeasured amount of Lay's Ranch Dip along with an unmeasured amount of Lay's Light Tortilla Chips (also dipped in ranch), an unmeasured amount of Sunsweet Prunes (that'll move things out of my, an unmeasured amount of pretzel twists, a 100 calorie pack of Pringles Sour Cream and Onion chips, an unmeasured amount of chocolate covered blueberries, and I'm sure there's more that I can't remember right now.

I haven't had a food day like yesterday in a VERY LONG time. I've been fairly good since I started getting more active on SP. The worst I've been before yesterday was on my trip to and from Florida, but even those bad days don't compare to yesterday because I was at least able to measure what I ate and record it all; unlike yesterday's damage.

My stomach is making it clear just how big of a mistake it was for me to overindulge so severely yesterday. I'm just going to eat a small breakfast and hope that my stomach doesn't give me too many problems so that I can exercise. Like they say, when you fall off the horse, you should try to get back on it.
