Feeling annoyed with myself and my food choices today… or maybe with my forgetfulness? I can’t decide. Either way, I’m hungry and have no calories left by my own poor planning/choices and am feeling not-so-happy about it.
This morning I got up and did my boot camp workout knowing that I would do the usual and have dinner with my family tonight. They usually eat earlier than I would alone — usually around 6:00 — and so I knew I would only get the one workout in today; no gym time this afternoon. That was okay with me… I knew I would just stick with the standard 1500 calories and not worry too much about it.
I also got up a little earlier than normal so that I would have time to stop at Starbucks for coffee. I figured it was the first day of October and I have been really wanting a pumpkin spice latte. So… I decided I would mark this first day of October with something pumpkiny. It seemed fitting. Out the door I ran with worries of being a little late for a work meeting. And as I chugged down the street towards Starbucks, I realized I didn’t pack my breakfast. Ugh. “okay, no problem,” I thought. I decided I would just get something at Starbucks.When I got there, I found a dark cherry yogurt with granola that had 10g of protein and 310 calories. It was the best I could do. Then I proceeded to order my skim pumpkin spice latte (and of course asked if there was any way to use sugar-free syrup to make even lower calorie… no such luck there). These choices were the downfalls of my day. Seriously, Brooke? Did you not consider how this would impact your 1500 calories day? Um, your latte had like 180 calories. Fine… if your breakfast wasn’t 100 calories over what it would normally have been.
So, now it’s 8:45 and I am finding myself starving. And annoyed with myself. I know I should probably eat something but I don’t want to gain weight for the day… or the weekend… or at all. And I am already over the amount of calories I was planning to eat today. This is SOOOOOOO not the way I have been taught by eDiets to lose weight… and yet I still can’t find a seemingly good resolution for this.
The worst part? I better not gain weight for today, and if I do, it’s my own poor planning. Lame.
