Merry Christmas everyone who celebrates!
Or happy weekend to those who don’t. :)
I swear, I think I ate about three peoples’ worth of food today. The main course was fine; turkey and a little stuffing and the rest was vegetables.
It was the rest of the food that wasn’t fine, diet-wise.
Filo prawns and mozzarella sticks and garlic breaded mushrooms and bread dipped in a melted Camembert round and then Christmas Pudding with Brandy Cream and ice cream for dessert, and an entire bottle of Shloer to myself because, as a former alcoholic, I’m trying to limit my alcohol intake to one or two drinks a year.
And I had those earlier this year, when I had two Irish coffees in October and November.
(I’m not joking about the “former alcoholic” thing. I was – and I suppose, I still am – an alcoholic. I just choose to no longer drink to excess, or really get drunk at all. But yes. When I was in college, I got to the point where I would buy alcohol before I would buy food. It was… not good.)
ANYWAY, moving swiftly on:
I’m pretty sure I went way over my 2,178 calories for the day. I ate at least 1,300 calories of chocolate (some of which had rum in it. Mum bought me rum-flavour truffles, and they actually have RUM IN THEM, but oh god, they’re so good…) and then, the food on top of that…
I haven’t been overeating the rest of the week, though. I’ve been eating healthily (except for the two nights we had take-away, but other than those two meals, my meals have been fine) and haven’t been bingeing or snacking. I even burned an extra 2,000-ish calories on Wednesday, through that Aquafit class and visit to the gym.
I know it’s probably gonna be a gain this week, but I’m gonna look at it this way:
Today was one day.
It’s not like I’m gonna continue eating like that tomorrow. Tomorrow, I’m back to eating healthily, and, as soon as I can, I’m getting back in the gym, and I’m getting back to working out.
Hell, I could even follow Rich’s workout-at-home videos if I wanted.
But right now, feeling so full I could burst, and coming down from a sugar high?
Right now, I really don’t wanna.
