Tried a down day again: 400 calorie goal. Ended up at 700. Things were going great until my boyfriend brought me some surprise chips (my favorite baked jalapeno kind!), plus biscotti, and it just went downhill from there. I keep getting that “well, I messed up my day already so I might as well keep eating” mentality, and it really puts me off track with completely unnecessary snacking that always makes me uncomfortably full.
I need to learn to operate by the fact that every calorie over my goals puts me further from the weight I want to be, regardless of when I eat them!
I went to the gym late at night to try to make up for the chips and biscotti I had at my boyfriend’s house. Then I came home and ate it all back. I’m a snacking mess.
Tonight we’re having a dinner date (meaning giant dinner I won’t be able to stop myself from eating all of), so I’m going to try my best to keep it all down to 1000 or below. I might end up baking for him and his friends, though, so I have a feeling it might be my “cheat-day” of the week.
Wish me luck!
