I haven't really fallen off the face of the earth, I promise. I have just been trying to catch up with work and life in general. Because we were in Toronto for most of the week last week, I came back to a pile of work on my desk. I have one of those jobs where if I don't do the work, it just piles up on my desk, no one else will do it for me. But I can't complain, I do really enjoy my job. I have been back on my meal plan since Monday but I did have a slip up on Monday night....grrr.
I came home from work with a massive headache so I took a few Advil and laid down for a power nap. I then woke up at 6:00 and headed to the fridge for supper, since hubby was out and I had just gotten back from Toronto, I didn't have that sense of accountability ingrained in my brain yet. I was still in "away from home, I can eat whatever I want" mode. Isn't it weird that when we are away form home we lose all accountability...or at least I do. Does anyone else do the same?? I knew I was supposed to have my 4 ounces of chicken and 2.5 cups of veggies but I looked at the fridge, contemplated the chicken and then threw caution to the wind. I decided to have a 1/2 cup of cottage cheese (still trying to get my protein in) and then I went to reach for the salad and for some odd odd odd reason, turned around opened the cupboard and pulled out the Mini Wheats!!! These were a major weakness of mine before I started WW. I would eat a whole box in one sitting....and I almost did on Monday! I ate those mini wheats like they were going out of style. Handful after handful (I don't like milk on them, just straight form the box!) I ate at least 1/2 the box. Granted the boxes are pretty small BUT STILL!!! I'm sure it was about 50x the amount of calories that would have been in my salad. Another thing, after I have a headache and take Advil to get rid of it, for some weird reason, I always crave carby food...Is it just me?? I always want a bagel or toast or something. Maybe it's just a comfort thing
But I decided Tuesday that enough was enough, I had to start holding myself accountable again. I have been doing great since then and am hoping for some sort of a loss tomorrow morning, even a small one would be great at this point.
I am slowly catching up on all of your blogs...I feel like I have missed a year's worth! Hope everyone is getting ready for the big Canada Day Weekend (for you fellow Canadians anyway)!! Take care!
