It has to be cheating.

Okay-- this week has been a calorie nightmare. I've been posting my calories, but the total ain't pretty.
Today I allowed my friends to persuade me to go out to lunch again. Sushi this time. I just KNEW, KNEW this would be bad because I've spied the California Roll (6 pcs) on someone's tracker and it pushed 650 calories.
I ordered the Spicy Salmon Roll (6 pcs). I ate half a cup of Miso soup and I had a cup of non-fat frozen yogurt afterward. I just knew I'd blown my calories for the third day in a row.
I logged it when I got back to school-- under 500 calories for ALL that food! I'm SO relieved. And I'm reminded that when I make sound food choices, I am able to satisfy my hunger AND stay on track. I really do want to reach my goal and I did better in terms of not hitting 3K cals on my binges. This time of the month (two weeks after TOM) is always hardest on me I think.
So, I'll register a gain this week. *shrug*
I'll still be lower than I was when I started. Heck, I'll probably be lower than I was week before last. And I have to remember that this is a marathon, not a sprint. I encourage people online to remember that it's about staying the course, not about restricting yourself to the point that you make it impossible to succeed. Some weeks will always be easier for me than others. But I'm doing well as long as I'm fighting the fight! :-)
I'm working on my eating habits and on eliminating my debt. Now if I can tackle those and just quit smoking! Argh. But food and cigarettes are all I think about. My obsessions leave me feeling like a runway model. Haha.
