Rough Day...

Saturday, November 25, 2017

Today started off really good...

Stepped on the scale to discover I only gained 0.4 lbs. eating Thanksgiving dinner yesterday. Squeezed in a short, 25 min workout before heading off to the sports arena to watch the hockey game (I have season tickets).

Arriving early, we parked the car & walked 1 mile (round trip) to a local restaurant where I 'built' a relatively healthy, high protein burger (chicken not beef). At the arena, I spent my time before the game & during intermission breaks walking arena... Another mile (total).

Drank nothing but water both during dinner & while @ the game.

My downfall was the snacking... I ate too much during the game. Instead of opting for one snack, I had 2 which put me over both my calorie & carb ranges.

** Had I opted only for 1 snack, I would have stayed within all my food range totals. I'm looking at this as a lesson learned. Looking at my food items & range totals, I discovered what I need to do to stay within my range. **

    It's one "game". You just put it behind you and take on the next "comer". You an do this!

    You are learning. After you made the mistake of to many calories on Thanksgiving, you studied what you had eaten and saw what you need to do to correct this next time. emoticon

    It is hard not to snack when you are at a sporting (or other) event. All you need to do is adjust the next day.

    Water was a good choice for your drinks at meals and during the games. It is filling but doesn't have the calories. We all need to work on more water and less sodas, etc.
