A word about dinner and dessert: I’m not gonna lie. I’m an emotional eater. And today was not a good day. When I’m feeling upset, or sad or angry BAM! I crave junk, usually baked goods, but sometimes, like today, fast food. Hence, the McDonald’s for dinner. I tried to make the best of it, choosing the smallest size fries, and opting for 1 burger when I really, honestly wanted two. I also had NO SODA. In fact, since hopping back on the bandwagon the only beverages I’ve had are water, coffee, and tea. And I can’t remember the last time I had soda. Soda will DESTROY your calorie count for the day. And most of the time it’s just not worth it. But I digress. Anyhow, as for the cupcake and pita chips, those were consumed at a get together at a new friend’s place. I knew they would put me over and I made a conscious decision to let it go. I actually would have been under 1800 and therefore within the acceptable range if I had passed on the cupcake. But I’m OK having gone over today. There have been several days this week when I had wiggle room left at the end of the day. So going over this once isn’t going to kill me, especially since I’ve been doing the Shred as well {except yesterday, but all went well today}. I guess what it comes down to is this, I may have lost the battle but I’m still winning the war. I’ve even moved my little running ticker again. :)
