Week 10, Wednesday, 950 calorie strawberry malt

These are my kids. Since my camera is broken, I'm having to use pics that I already had. Anyway....the bear.... oh yes, I made a major mistake today. I gave in to a temptation to have a LARGE STRAWBERRY MALT that came in at 950 cals. I told myself that I wouldn't eat any more snacks and just have 350 cals for supper and that it would be fine. That was a lie. It wasn't fine. All of that sugar tore up my stomach really bad AND seems that it started the cravings. POOEY on that. I didn't eat anything for several hours after that. But when we got home from church I thought I was starving and I comsumed 2 fiber one bars, a salad, and 3 bites of ice cream. THe ice cream shouldn't even have been in my house.

What did I learn from all of this? That I should NOT have a meal that is that many cals and ESPECIALLY if it has NO nutritional value. Also, that I need to stick to the 500 cal meals and 150 cal snacks and eating every 2-3 hours. That is the way to go.

Tomorrow is a new day.

Today I walked an hour and 10 minutes---2.75 miles. Tomorrow I am going to have to get with it!

Ok....going to bed so I can be my best tomorrow.

Goodnight and thanks for reading!

  1. Your kids are very cute.

    OH my gosh, I had no idea shakes were so high in calories. Ugh.

    I think there are days when our bodies scream for something besides what they're used to. Then they revolt if we give it to them. lol

    Yesteray was a high-hunger day for me, too. I ended up using some of my flex points, which I don't like to do.

    I eat Klondike Slim-a-Bears on hand for ice cream cravings. They're 2 WW points, so around 100-120 calories, somewhere in there. I don't eat them often. I will also pop in to McDonald's for a twist cone, because it's yogurt. It's 3 WW points, so 150ish in calories. Neither is the same as a shake, though. I love shakes. Now I'm drooling for a chocolate shake. lol

    Move is a new day. We're only human and we do the best we can. I think we have little blips like this so we can learn as we go!
