Today has gone fine, but I’m definitely seeing some serious caution lights. First of all, I did something I have not done in a long time. When I was at Wal-Mart I bought Lindt Chocolate truffles. Just felt the need for some chocolate. I have eaten three, which is one official serving (230 cals), so I haven’t gone crazy. However, one should have been sufficient, and there’s that potential.
Next, I made Caramel Graham Fudge brownies. I haven’t really baked in so long and I was just really craving that, so I bought the ingredients at Wal-Mart today (by the way, not baking and having sweets really does save money), and just made them. I only had a few bites of batter, and the plan is to simply have one brownie and give the rest away. I feel like I really am in control right now but I don’t want to be foolish and add unecessary temptation.
I did get in a decent workout today. About 25 mins on the elliptical and 25 mins on the treadmill. I’m estimating 400 cals burned, but that’s probably conservative.
And by the way, a few people commented about the low calories yestesrday. My philosophy is not to worry about it if I have a low day. My average calories eaten for the week have NEVER been below 1200, so I figure it all evens out. If I’m not that hungry one day and only eat 800, thats fine. Conversely, if I’m really hungry or am having an extra treat, and I eat 1500, or even 2000, that’s okay too.
