After the picnic...

Ugh! I survived the picnic because I was busy and I didn't think about eating. I was having fun talking and seeing people I hadn't seen before so I didn't think about overeating.  That was GOOD! Then I brought home the leftovers!! 


Seriously?  Who did I think was going to eat the rest of the pasta salad?  Who did I think was going to eat a bunch of the delicious minty cookies that I made?  Then I made a nice dinner for myself with a plan. Made spaghetti for the kids and ended up eating WAY more of the garlic bread then I intended!! 

I can make all the excuses in the world. It was a busy day.  I'm having my period.  It is a busy, crazy, not normal week. I just didn't feel like tracking. I was hungry and WANTED to eat. That's the reality of it. I chose poorly.  :-( 

I didn't eat like 3000 calories or anything stupid like that.  I just ate junk.  I have no idea how many calories I ate. Too many that's for sure. And it was junk.  Pure junk.

Sorry for the whiny post.  I'm just hoping that I will be able to read back on this and say, "what the heck was I thinking" and be able to move past it!! 


  1. Thanks for commenting on mine as well! ha well this post is normally how i feel. the only thing i can think of is just dont give up! keep up the good work and tomorrow is a new day!

    I'm glad i'm not the only snacker out there ;P it makes it easier knowing i'm not the the only one struggling.

  2. Life is a series of choices we make. Sometimes we make bad ones but in the large scheme of things, poor food choices aren't going to ruin our lives uless we keep making them day after day. Pull yourself up by your bootstraps, girl, and make good choices today. You are doing great!

  3. You were right to ask why you brought home the leftovers. If the dish I brought isn't gone, I either give it to someone or dump it right there. And I never bring home anything anyone else offers. The one exception is my neighbor's mashed potatoes, and even then I only bring home one portion. Man, those things call me, one bite at a time, until they're gone!

  4. My entire week was like this last week. Today was pretty bad too. I don't know why, but I just keep eating.

    I kept a big bowl of grapes on the counter today and that helped a bit. Every time I walked into the kitchen I grabbed a handful of grapes. Would have been cookies, otherwise! So, I guess it's not all bad.

    I'm trying to get past it and move on, as well!

    Good luck!

  5. Debbi, how do you find the calories for your recipes?

    I'm trying to determine how many calories I should eat per day, but even if I find that out, I have no idea how to track calories. Do you have a good resource to suggest?

    thanks! :)
