not eating at home
eep. i think i may have put a wedge in my "thin" day. here begins a short rant--
i guess i haven't figured out yet how to eat when i'm not cooking at home and the calories aren't right there on a package. cuz i had what i thought was a semi-ok lunch. (i'm on campus all day today so i decided to buy lunch). i was writing a journal entry about it and realized how many calories i ate. but it didn't SOUND that bad to me.
i wrote: "i had salad, but i put ranch on there. there was no low-fat ranch option. and i had a baked potato, with cheese. hmm. and a cookie. but as far as QUANTITY, i did good. hmm, i need to figure out how many calories i ate, approx."
when i figured it out, it was over 900! that's 3/4 of my 1200 goal. guess it's soup for dinner, huh?
but the sad part about it is, i felt like i was doing good. next time, i'll JUST have the potato. cuz it was that and the ranch that killed me.
i wish i could just lay down a rule for myself to never eat at school, but it's not really practical with hy heavy classload. plus, if this is a "lifestyle change" i need to figure out how to handle myself, you know.
the trials and tribulations of the fat.
