Miami, Monday and malady

Well I’m happy to report I survived driving back and forth to Miami for a ball game without completely trashing my eating regime. (Notice I do not use the word “diet“. This is not temporary, this is a new lifestyle for me. In any event, we had a great time at the game and while I partook of some of the oodles of food and a little wine that surrounded us in the suite, I managed to avoid soda and drank water. A lot of water.

I also made home-made egg, sausage, cheese and bread casserole for the fiancĂ© this weekend. No idea how many calories, but I’m trying to figure out how to account for this situation in the future.

I’m slightly stressed that I ate more of that than I should have and that the calories are outrageous. But I’m trying to stay calm and move forward. I’m definitely not using this as an excuse to binge, like I would have in the past. I’m getting right back on the wagon and tracking cals.

I am a little disappointed in myself but I’m trying not to let it overtake me. I can’t focus on that, I have to stay focused on my goal, which I’ll meet. I didn’t get my walk in this weekend either, but I did almost hit my step goal yesterday, nonetheless.

Will get back to walking tonight, despite being exhausted and battling a stomach issue. Because I’m not feeling the best, I haven’t eaten lunch, but I’m really not hungry or feeling up to it, though I am making sure I keep drinking lots of water.

All in all, for my first weekend on my new healthful journey, I think I did ok. Not perfect, but weekends have always been such a huge struggle for me, especially when there are special events thrown in there. But I didn’t completely lose it or go off track and today I’m back being uber accountable.

So I’m going to choose to see this as a success and just do even better this coming weekend. We are having family dinner Sunday (lasagna) but I’m going to figure out cals in advance and work it in. It’s all about planning for me. Still determined to do this…

  1. Weekends are hard! I think it’s great that you tried and you did make some good choices this weekend! There’s no point in dwelling on what you did “wrong” because you can’t change that you ate “x” food. The good thing is that you could’ve done a lot worse and you’re making better choices today! And to that I say AWESOME!

    • Thanks! Weekends are the *worst* for me! So much time and surrounded by food quite often- not a good combo! But I have to learn how to navigate the weekends to meet my goals. Next weekend will only be better. I also learned how to log what I made on mfp, so will do that tonight! Yay!

      • Yeah, weekends are like that for me too – we’re always on the go, so it’s hard to plan food. I fear I will not do so great on Saturday, as it’s my toddler’s birthday party! But, I will eat great all week and the rest of the time, so that cupcake won’t do so much damage!

      • That’s the attitude to have! I think it’s important to still be able to celebrate special occasions- in moderation. It’s not an excuse to eat whatever you want though, you know. I just logged my casserole: 359 calories/serving. Not as bad as I feared. I can have special treats in moderation from time to time! Now to figure out the lasagna for the upcoming weekend!
