I have got to figure out how not to blow it on the weekends! I know as long as I have the “who cares?” mentality on the weekend, I’m going to sabotage myself and never fully change my eating habits.
Last night we went to Buffalo Wild Wings, and I had an amazing buffalo chicken sandwich and fries, and then Hubby and I shared a peanut butter pie. Both of those were NOT healthy, but since it was my “splurge” day I didn’t worry about it. But this afternoon we went to eat at Zaxby’s (I guess we’re really big chicken people), and I decided to be “good” and get a grilled chicken sandwich. I was so proud of myself, but then tonight when I looked up the nutrition info, I found out it was one of the worst things on the menu! I should know by now that restaurants are so deceptive, and that foods that appear healthy actually have hidden calorie killers. In this case, it was the bun the sandwich came on that really put the calories over the edge. All in all, I went over my calorie limit by about 250 calories.
I am just so disappointed in myself and also frustrated that I can’t seem to eat as well on the weekends as I do during the week. I just need to learn that I always need to make healthy choices, and that’s not always fun or ideal, but it is best for my body.
Some days I wonder, though, if I really want to have to worry about counting calories for the rest of my life. I know that if I want to keep off whatever weight I lose, that’s what I’ll have to do. And that kind of depresses me.
I could really use some encouragement / advice about this.
