It didn't stop there either. When I got home from work, I realized that I needed to go to the grocery store. I hate to grocery shop while hungry (yes, at that point I still felt hungry...) so I decided to have another snack. I heated up some Lean Cuisine spring rolls (200 cals) and then took off to the store to get a few things. For dinner I made some whole grain pasta with chicken breast, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, goat cheese and onions in a reduced balsamic sauce. It was delicious...so delicious that I had to have TWO servings!!! Aggghhhhhh! What was wrong with me??? Not to mention that I completely forgot to measure out my dry pasta by servings so I could figure out the calorie content.
MY STOMACH WANTED ALL THIS JUNK...
Okay, so after Eat-Fest 2011, I decided to get my butt to the gym. Starting my workout was tough -- I'm sure I have the carb-overload to thank for that. I felt like I could feel all the crap I ate today just bouncing around in my stomach...I felt tired and sluggish and thought I would never get through the hour workout I had planned. I was watching The Biggest Loser and started to really get into it. Before I knew it, 30 minutes had passed and I was feeling good. That crappy feeling had gone away and I got a burst of energy. I finished watching the show and had completed 50 minutes on the elliptical. After that, I did several sets of lunges and squats and also did some upper body strength training. I worked up a good sweat and finished my workout in about an hour and 15 minutes.
Even though my eating was a little out of control today, I am proud of myself for not just giving in completely. I could have easily went even more overboard than I did...those Cheetos in the vending machine were screaming at me today!!! I snacked way too much, but still stuck to my healthy foods when doing so....and, most importantly, I didn't stay on the couch tonight like I wanted to. I made myself get up and go to the gym! I made myself finish my workout and pushed myself to work hard during it! So, all in all, I pretty proud of myself today and I feel like this little bump in the road is only going to make me stronger! :)
