Well I just got back from NC from visiting my family and as I suspected the house was full of Christmas goodies as it is every year and my sister fixed a HUGE Christmas dinner. I did pretty good in resisting all the sweets and goodies.
For dinner I didn't do as well. As I was fixing my plate I KNEW I was putting too much ham on my plate when I did it but I couldn't help myself I was TOO hungry.
I think I may have made a mistake in not eating anything but a bowl full of green beens (with low cal low sodium gravy, bacon bits and pickles, don't laugh until you try it! LOL!) before I left my house in Va.
In case I over ate there I didn't eat so much during the morning and skipped lunch completely because we were eating at 3pm. And of course by 3pm I was starving!
For almost a month my meat portions have not been bigger than 4ozs for a single meal, for Christmas dinner it had to be 20 ozs or more and ham of all things to over eat!
I also ate too much mac and cheese and I caved in right before I left and had to have a piece of my Mom's homemade German chocolate cake! But it was a pretty small piece like I asked but my sister put a scoop of ice cream on it and brought it too me ARRRGGH! How could I resist it was already in front of me so I ate it.
So I am estimating I probably ate 2500 or more extra calories today.
But I am NOT going to do what I have done in the past which is be mad at myself or get dreppressed or worse give up dieting and say well you screwed up you might as well eat and start again next week.
NO! I am just going to get back on track tomorrow and work out an extra 15 minutes and maybe cut my calories a little (maybe skip the snacks) and just get back on track again. No fuss, no muss no beating yourself up.
Just get back up and keep trudging along. I was doing good since Dec1 and I know I can keep going until I meet my goal.
I hope everyone had a little more self control than I did.
Well I DO feel good that I didn't let them talk me into taking food home with me like they were trying to do and I did resist the fudge, cookies and finger food all over the house.
I just ate to DANG much for dinner, but oh well tomorrows a new day right???
