Remember how easy everything was on Sunday? Oh my, how things can change. ;)
Somehow, on Monday, I ate 29 over my daily points (of 25). Eep! Luckily, I had the weekly points to account for it. I don't even know how it happened! Just some Doritos here, some toast there, and BAM. 29 points in the hole.
So, fine. No big deal. I'll just watch it for the rest of the week, right?
Well. I keep chocolates in my desk at work for days that I want to bribe my students. A very dumb place for them, because I open my drawer to get something out, and I see them. Today was not a high-willpower kind of day (I got very little sleep last night and I've got a few things on my mind - excuses, excuses!), so I ate 9 plain chocolates, and 3 peanut butter ones!
So why am I proud? Well, I kept track while I ate them, and counted up all the points when I got home. I was on the verge (and may have started) going nuts eating everything in my cupboard, but somehow I convinced myself to do the 30 Day Shred Level 3. (Because it's only 20 minutes, I usually can't excuse my way out of it).
So now I'm feeling shredded by Jillian, and no longer on the verge of a crazy binge. Working out made me crave some healthy food, rather than junk, and I am still feeling really good about this week.
It just goes to show that I can avoid going completely over the top after one (or two) small bouts of uncontrollable eating! The damage done was not that bad, and my week is NOT shot to hell!
Tonight I am trying my first recipe from Eat, Shrink, and Be Merry: Mexican lasagna. I will let you know how it goes!
