Sorry I didn't check in last night but I do have totals from yesterday. I was on track to have a calorie deficit and then I let my work stress and relationship anger dictate my choices in the evening. At least I'm being accountable to myself...right?
My eats yesterday included:
Breakfast: oatmeal with blueberries and cinnamon; coffee with 1/2 c. 1% milk and 1 t. sugar
Morning Snack: Almond & Cashew KIND Bar
Lunch: Lean Cuisine Mac & Cheese and two clementines
Afternoon Snack: banana & Clif Z chocolate chip bar
Dinner: 2 eggs, 1/2 T. ketchup, slices of toast with 1 T whipped butter and 1 T raspberry pom jam...and I remembered to take a picture of it! But not before I grabbed a bite of toast.
I also ate my dinner without the TV and computer on. I enjoyed the experience and focued on eating slowly. All was great. And then Bachelor #1 called. It was a frustrating call. He was exhausted and I'm not even sure why he called, he really didn't have the energy to support a conversation. His indecision about this coming weekend or any plans to see one another in the next two weeks created a lot of doubt. After we ended our conversation, I realized how mentally tired I was from work. I should have gone to bed. Instead, I ate a bag of Pirate's Booty. Not a serving, but a whole bag. UGH. So I'm getting off to a slow start to the "back on the wagon" declaration. But I'll get there.
Run: 4 miles, on the treadmill, nice recovery pace
Eats: 2104 calories (12% protein, 60% carbs (327g), 28% fat)
Calories Burned: 2141 (I'll post later on how I compute this)
Calorie Balance: -37 calories
Men: a delightful email exchange with bachelor #2; a frustrating email exchange and phone call with bachelor #1
The scale was nice to me this morning. I'm glad some of the gain was merely water weight. But I need to be focused on having a better Calorie Balance.
Have an awesome Tuesday!
