Day 7 Exercise Streak
Saturday, January 27, 2018
Besides work, I had a class Monday and Thursday night. It ran late both nights. Didn't get home until past 10 P.M. on Thurs. night. The class was a 45 min. drive from home. 30 min. or so drive from work.
I have not broken my exercise streak. That's the good news.
However, I ate too much yesterday. I drove over to McDs and bought a 6 piece chicken tenders and 2 buffalo sauces. Now, I'm paying for it. The breading in the tenders causes me problems. I think I'm allergic or sensitive to wheat. I have cut way back but if I overdo it, I pay the price.
I have never bought a 6 piece chicken tender before. I've had 2, 3, even 4, but not 6. I think I was giving myself a "treat" for working late.
I did fine until the chicken tenders. I also ate yogurt and started eating mixed nuts from the can rather than counting out 22 pieces. Bad, bad, bad! . And I weigh in tomorrow. The only saving grace is that the nuts were unsalted. Maybe it's the nuts I over-ate that is causing my problems. I rarely eat nuts from a can but I fell prey to a craving this week.
Today I ate egg whites, a yellow squash, Roma tomatoes, an orange, a banana, a yogurt, and a spinach ready pack salad. Then blew it with the chicken tenders (high sodium), high sodium buffalo sauce, and two more yogurts, one being a high calorie Yoplait Girl Scout Thin Mint. I have given up sweets like cookies, ice cream, pie, candy, cake, and doughnuts. I may need to add Yoplait Girl Scout Yogurts. They come in Thin Mint, Coconut Cream, and Chocolate Peanut Butter. If I eat one, I crave more. 😕 Besides the Girl Scout Yogurt, I need to say goodbye to chicken tenders (I can get grilled from Chick Fil A if I'm craving them.) and mixed nuts. Why did I buy the nuts!? No more of that. The nuts are an easy choice to eliminate. No sodium nuts are just not as good as salted anyway. I can stick with the natural almonds rather than the mixed nuts.
Weigh in will not be pretty tomorrow. 😭
