Yesterday was nuts. 🙄 It was just one of those days. I ended up having a royal carb screw-up too, but it was totally unintentional. Given how my day went, and how much I struggled, I’m just relieved that’s ALL that got logged. 😛
I’ll explain & share my MyFitnessPal food diary so you can see what I mean.
The day started out great. As many bad days do. 🙂 It really wasn’t that bad. I just had a bit of a meltdown, but made a great recovery lol.
(Well, except for the “carb oops!” at dinner…)
I met with my bookkeeper yesterday and got my taxes files. Which, as a successful entrepreneur, is always a little stressful. Totally deflating would be a better description. 🙄 Heh. Ugh. Anyway, I’m glad to have it done at least.
After that though, I was in a bit of a daze. Processing tons of information and solutions in my head. I drove back to town in total quiet, my mind buzzing, getting hungry… and drove around in circles for an entire hour. I kept talking myself out of BAD food choices, lol.
I finally ended up at Applebee’s. It was around 3:30 in the afternoon by then. I got seated, but never got any service – so I eventually left and went somewhere else. More driving in circles 🙂 lol. The urge to just “take a day off” was STRONG. Rah!
I decided to go to Ming’s Chinese Buffet & Grill. I knew I had two options there: eat super low carb, or totally binge. And a third option: just have a little of something I shouldn’t. I had no idea how it would go as I was walking through the door.
I did fine. Well, you’ll see. 🙂 lol. Below is my low carb food diary for yesterday. After dinner I came home and just crawled in bed – and slept ALL evening. Literally, from around 5pm until 9:30, lol. When I’m done with a day, I’m DONE. 😛
Day 11: Thursday’s Low Carb Meals
I started the day with my usual “low carb cereal.” It’s 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese, 3/4 cup pecans & 4 small strawberries. (6 net carbs, 88% healthy fats)
I had a big juicy low carb burger on my way to get my taxes filed. I ordered it plain with cheese so it would be zero carbs… and also so I don’t drip while driving. 🙂
My dinner at the chinese buffet started out great. I got steak & mushrooms from the grill in the back (“soy sauce only, please!”). Delicious!
The only real screw-up was the Baked Crab on the bar. I didn’t even think about it being Imitation Crab (which is loaded in carbs!!). You can see the entire photo tour of my low carb meal at the buffet here.
Honestly, I’m impressed that the “unintentional crab” was the worst I did. 🙂 Once I got in there I didn’t even want any of the high carb foods laid out everywhere for the taking. My resolve is stronger than I realized! 😉
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Thursday:
All said and done, not a bad day – except for that little oversight with the crab. Lesson learned! I haven’t weighed yet since I’m a bit off schedule, so stay tuned for a weight loss update. 😉
I’m actually proud of myself for avoiding a stress binge. VERY proud. I desperately need to get some low carb groceries (my cupboards are bare! 😯 lol), and I MUST get in a good workout today…
