So I woke up this morning with the best of intentions.
I took my dog for a good walk, I packed a low carb meal for work and input all the food into my fitnesspal to make sure that I didn’t go over 50 grams of carbs. I even brought my gym bag and had planned to get some strength training in after work.
My downfall however, was my mood. I was just in a bad mood earlier today, and I did not feel like eating my carefully prepped meal at work. It was my free day gatdamnit and I wanted OUT.
The fact that I work in a strip mall surrounded by a dozen restaurants did not do any favors for my resolve. So I caved and ate out again, and although I didn’t go overboard, it was not a low carb meal I had. Mainly because of the half of loaf of bread that I ate that was served before my meal.
One of the snacks that I had packed earlier was a low carb, but very high fat lemon pudding (super duper easy to make- one package of sugar free lemon pudding mix, and two cups of heavy cream which makes four servings) and I ate that later on for dinner.
And that pudding was SO filling, that I did not have the energy to go to the gym once I got out of work. When I got home, I basically just flopped on the couch and watched a movie…while I noshed on some snack mix even though I wasn’t even all that hungry.
I’m feeling overly stuffed right now, and it’s not a good feeling.
I already know that I can eat whatever I want on my free days and still lose weight, but I want to take my weight loss to the next level by eating more healthy and low carb. I’ve done so well on this diet so far, but I want to try and be better.
But there’s a different between trying my best and doing my best. Trying won’t accomplish goals, but doing will.
Well, tomorrow is a new day…a diet day, so considering I have so few calories to work with, staying under 50 grams of carbs won’t be a problem.
