Stumbles…err, Grumbles!

“If you stumble while climbing up a mountain, are you just going to throw yourself off the mountain? No, you are going to check yourself and keep climbing.”

Yesterday I stumbled a bit.  I ate over my calories by what I consider to be a significant amount, and I don’t feel good about it.  I’m fighting that little voice that’s telling me to throw in the towel and just eat whatever I want because I failed at it, and if I failed at it once, obviously I’m going to fail at it again, right?

You know you want that brownie

It’s taking every ounce of willpower, but I’m not going to let that little voice win.  I’m human, and I’m going to make mistakes.  It’s so easy to say that to other people, but it’s a different story when I’m saying it to myself.  Today is another day, and it’s a Sunday so I get to work on the elliptical and will make sure I stay within my calorie limit!

Food Diary for 7/13/13:

1 Dannon Light & Fit Greek Drawberry-80 calories
1 Wegman’s 7” Roast Beef Sub-600 calories
1 Tastykake Coconut Frosty Cakes-170 calories
4.8 oz chicken breast-154 calories
5 Town House Flipside Pretzel Crackers-70 calories
2 Cups fresh Blueberries-166 calories
1 Peach-59 calories
1 Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cheese-35 calories
1 Whole Wheat Tortilla 120 calories
1 Fiber One Brownie-90 calories
Total Calories-1543

Over calories by 343.  To me that is significant.  Many will disagree, and in the back of my mind I know that the small amount of weight gain (went from 205.4 to 205.9) is not much at all.  I’m not sure why I was so hungry, but it seriously felt like no matter what I was eating, I wasn’t satisfied.  Even as I was going to bed, I was still hungry, but I didn’t want to eat any more. 

Today is back on track, no excuses!!  No little voice egging me on to eat things that are not on plan!  Today I straighten out and keep climbing my mountain!
