A day of impulse

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

Yesterday, I had a day of impulse. Also known as big girl day/fat kid day. I got less than 4 hours of sleep Monday night (or rather, Tuesday morning). Then I had to be up early to get to campus. For breakfast, I had Special K and Greek yogurt. Good. For lunch, I had 3/4 of a black bean burger and steamed veggies at Chili's. Still good. Then I had my workout at 4 pm with my trainer. At that point, I had had two huge cups of coffee that hadn't helped. I figured the exercise would help wake me up. Nope. Then I was leaving campus to head towards church for Bible study. Well, I was hungry and needed to get my protein/carb recovery method on. I figured I would make it an early dinner. My mind couldn't get off of the following: a baked potato, Chick Fil A, a Coke Zero, and ice cream. So I got a Wendy's baked potato, no margarine, with the reduced fat sour cream. Then I got some Chick Fil A strips (3 count). And then, I drove to church. Well, I was early for church. And because I couldn't get ice cream off my mind, I drove to the Wendy's around the corner to get an Oreo Frosty (or as they call it, a Parfait). The only thing I didn't have was the Coke Zero (that is, until I got home and pulled a can out of the fridge). Luckily because I had eaten so well all day, I didn't go over tooo much (like 200 calories and some overage on carbs, but still within the limits of fat and protein). I had to track my food though. Even though I had a fat kid day, I'm committed to writing down what I put in my mouth.

What did I learn? Don't let me have my debit card or cash when I'm tired. Or a car. Just tell me to take a nap. emoticon

    i feel you! i had an ice cream day today. it was a rough day and its been a rough week so i just had one of those "i need this" moments.

    its good though.... i think your last statement really was a great takeaway. dont be ashamed of your choices, you honestly didn't do that terrible on your overage. but you are still thinking it through afterwards and you will take this lesson from today and use it in the future. :)
