I seriously didn't want to post today. Not that it would have changed anything.
I started out so good. I ate my pizza egg bagel as usual. Then I ate a fair amount of pizza for lunch. Not TOO much. Mostly toppings, not that much crust.
Then I made amish bread. You know, the ones that I've been making on my recipe blog for the last few months. It wasn't necessarily the bread/cake itself that got me. It was the chocolate chips. I made a coconut bread with chocolate topping. I KEPT eating the chocolate chips!! Every handful I took, I kept thinking, "what the heck are you doing, stop doing that!". But I didn't. I ate WAY too many.
Then I ate some cake. Not too much but some.
I was thinking about blaming it on the monthly visitor but I don't think I ate them because I was craving them. I ate them because they were THERE. Seriously.
I didn't eat dinner. I just wasn't hungry. Isn't that weird?? I did make a new meal today for my blog so I photographed it and ate about 2 bites and then put it away for lunch tomorrow. It's not like 1/4 bag of chocolate chips and 2 pieces of cake could really fill me up THAT much? Calories wise, it was insane I'm sure. Each piece of cake is roughly 300 calories. I don't want to know how much 1/4 bag of chocolate chips is. Okay, so I just figured it out. Not actually QUITE as bad as I thought. I used 1/2 the bag for the frosting and there is about 1/4 of the bag left so I ate about 400 calories in chocolate chips.
So this is the breakdown.
Pizza Egg Bagel = 200
Pizza = 500
Amish Bread/Cake = 600
Chocolate Chips = 400
Few bites of dinner = 100
Total calories = 1800 calories
Weird, it's not as bad calorie wise as I thought. I seriously thought it would be closer to 3000 or something. That's what it FELT like. Nutritionally, it totally sucked. You'd think I would be starving but I'm TOTALLY not. I should be in a sugar coma!!
In any case, I feel horrible about the choices I made today. The good news, is at least I DID keep track and am being accountable for it. Think how much worse it would be just to mindlessly eat and not have ANY idea of how much was consumed!! I spent too many years doing THAT so we're not going back there.
Tomorrow will be better. No more cake.
