But by dinnertime, I was about to chew my arm off I was so hungry. No way I was going to make it. Not to mention I've been craving Mexican food. And I know when I crave something I have to feed the craving or I will begin to obsess about it. So, I accepted I was going to go over the calorie count today but looked at the menu to figure out something that was much lower in calories than what I would normally get. I didn't need the queso dip or the sour cream or the entire bag of chips. I ended up with a single chicken quesadilla and a bit of refried beans and four tortilla chips. Higher in calories than most of my dinners of late, but not as not as bad as the giant burrito or slathered-in-cheese chimichanga I normally get. And it satisfied the craving so that tomorrow I can get back to a staying-at-home, healthier eating plan for the day, and thus a lower calorie count. I may shoot for something in the 1,000 range tomorrow to counter today's big number.
Have any of you ever eaten something, thinking it was a good choice, only to find out later it wasn't?
Anyway, my phone is ancient, and after my deadline I'm going to start exploring getting a new one that has some Internet surfing capability so I'm not attacked by a Giant Calorie Salad again.
Calorie count: 1,674
Exercise: None again. Yes, I know I was going to do better today. Sigh. Not that this is good for the health (unless you count my stress level), but I am getting several pages written today. I'm up to 13 now and want to get at least 2 more. Was shooting for 20, but I'm beginning to get tired. If I could only write and walk at the same time.
