Day 108: A Doozie of a Day

So just a heads up, today was a bad day for food. I haven’t had a day like this in a while but that’s how it goes sometimes right? It was one of those things where you expect a day to go to certain way and then it goes a different route. I’m not mad at all, it’s like Megan told me: there’s no reason to be mad about it because it’s a lifestyle change not a diet. There are going to be days like this and I’ll just have to do a better job next time.

Breakfast: I had a 2 waffles with pb which was 8 points but then we went up to campus so both of us to do schoolwork (already… yes it is still the first week. Welcome to Grad School) at 8 so I got a Venti Iced Nonfat Caramel Machiatto to stay awake and it was 6 points. I thought that I had the points to eat this much but I was sadly mistaken.

Lunch: I finally left the library around noon and we met back up at the lovely Pitarita. We were going to get some of their low point soup but they were out so I went on the complete other end and had a gyro and we split some pita fries. Isn’t weird that you have these intentions of being good and then you go on the complete opposite of the spectrum? It’s so weird! Anyways lunch was 15 points so by now I was pretty much already at my limit.





Dinner: (Here’s where it got fun) we were invited to dinner with Catherine (check out her awesome blog!) and Tristan so we went to this Mexican restaurant close to campus. I was scrambling to figure out what I wanted to eat and I spazzed out and got that. Looking back I could have gotten a billion different things that could have been a better choice but I didn’t and that happens. I got refried beans, a chicken quesadilla and a burrito covered in cheese full of ground beef. At first I thought “I’ll just eat the inside of the quesadilla” then I ate the tortilla. I ate the beans and then I wasn’t going to eat any of the burrito but I ended up just eating half of it. I have no clue how bad it was but I know it was bad.



So I haven’t done this in a while but I’m going to do it. I haven’t used any of my weekly points this week so I’m not going to use any at all for the rest of the week. Here’s what I think: my jeans still fit and it was one day meal. I’m not back to 357. I’m not backtracking. I’m not quitting. It was just a hiccup of a day. But it was providential that Matt texted me and asked if I wanted to play racquetball tomorrow. I have a feeling I’ll be making it up then. See ya tomorrow.

  1. OK, not that I am endorsing “bad food days” by any stretch of the imagination. But we have them. We can’t change that. So look at the positives of a bad food day.
    A) Your body is now totally confused as to what you are doing. That’s GOOD. When yuo shake up your metabolism, it starts working harder. You benefit from that!
    B) Indulging every once in a while isn’t going to kill you. (unless by once in a while you mean every day at 4. Which I know you don’t.)
    And C) LOOK AT YOUR KICK BUTT ATTITUDE ABOUT IT! Granted, I’m a girl, but I have shed lots of tears over “bad food days.” You already have it figured out. That is a huge step in the fit direction.
    You are doing things right, and I can’t wait to see how it really works for you in the long run!

      • Hey, support on the journey is almost as important as the journey itself! (And lands end, how I know that!) Anytime I can help, shoot me an email or a FB, my friend. I mean that. You know where to find me. šŸ™‚

  2. We all have these days and this will definitely not be the last day where things don’t go as planned. Megan is totally right, it’s a lifestyle change and if you have a day where you eat something bad I think that’s perfectly okay, one day of bad choices is NOT going to undo all the amazing work you’ve done so far.

    Keep up the great work and don’t beat yourself up over one day of bad choices. Jump back on the wagon and keep kicking butt!
